So here it is. It took me nearly two years to finish this track. Enjoy, but please notice the following advises.
This is a highly detailed track, so I do think a lot of you will get high frame rate issues.
For working video wall animation you need the stFlow shader:
Might crash without!
(edit: now included in v.1.00)
How to install (v0.91):
I tested it on my NVidia 970GTX with triple monitors (5760x1080) and get about 66fps on world detail set to maximum. Because it's a hill climb track you won't have AI opponents but I still haven't tested it online.
If you get too low frame rates with your system, please adjust graphic settings (world detail, shadows, etc) and if this won't be enough edit the models_layout_a.ini/models_layout_a_wet.ini to load less kn5 files to see what causes the problem.
Also this track has movable objects which can generate issues on older graphic cards without physics.
If too many of you older AMD card users have problems I will release another version without movables.
(edit: can now be edited in ini files in v.1.00)
For me the track looks best with the custom shader patch and SOL mod:
With the latest version of CSP (0.1.25-preview114) I receive a performance gain of 8fps so try this.
This is an A to B hill climb.
So only Practice, Hotlap and Drift will work. (expect anybody knows a work around ?!?)
Wet version is included, too. But somehow I can not get rid of this annoying track cutting bug. If there's an AI expert out there, please help!
Dynamic moving objects (plane, helicopter) don't work with latest CSPv114 but I'm sure it will be fixed. They do work with CSPv74.
(edit: working again with v140)
So here is a little story about my relation to the Goodwood Festival of Speed:
After watching the annual FoS broadcasts and having the lack of this circuit in AC and other sims (AFAIK only GT6 featured the 2012 version of it) I decided to try this project after finishing my Borgloh track.
Thanks to open LIDAR and YouTube I was able to find good resources for modeling the 2017 version.
The Festival of Speed 2017 was held from June 29 to July 2. It celebrated 70 years of Ferrari, 50 years of AMG and Bernie Ecclestone. The central sculpture honors the "Five Ages of Ecclestone". And if you look closely you can spot Bernie on the Goodwood house balcony watching you trying to break the lap record.
In 2018 I finally visit the FoS. What a great experience. And I get the chance of seeing parts of the track you don't find online (like the top paddock) and taking millions of photos for texture work.
