Halifax GP
Westside of Aachen made into a track. ~9.5km
The name is derived from the Halifax Bridge.

The track was created in Google Maps first and is entirely based on real streets in the West of Aachen, Germany. The track itself is kept as close as possible to the real life streets.
Some sections have been slightly altered in width and camber to allow for better racing though.
I have taken a lot of liberties with the surroundings and decoration for performance and aesthetics as well.

Warning CSP users: Disable "Cache generated grids" and "Cache generated payloads" in "New AI Behavior", it breaks AI lines!!!
The AI is still work in progress and will improve with time. They still get 3:40 times in GT3 cars and allow for good racing. 40 Pits.

The csp lights are still WIP and just proof of concept to allow racing in the night.

GT3 racing in the rain, max settings:
Cruising session by iceninja46:

Simply drag the zip into the Content Manager to install.
The track might work without CSP but it is highly recommended!
Stuff might break without CSP.


CSP FX:
- GrassFX
- RainFX
- Lights
- Crowds (soon)
- Working digital flags (soon)
- Video board with live feed (soon™)

Bugfixes you may try if stuff fails:
If the AI drives into every wall and is erratic and unpredictable, try disabling this option in CM. It is mandatory for Ai!

If the light seems to be too impactful on your performance you can disable it entirely by renaming the file located under: "assettocorsa\extension\config\tracks\halifax_gp.ini"

A way better approach would be to delete every line up to line 104 of the .ini.
That would be everything concerning the lighting until the line ;RAIN FX.

Special thanks to:

Thanks for the feedback! Glad to see you're able to run the track at night without your GPU melting. I always have performance worries when working on the lighting.

Thanks for the review, very motivating to continue working on it!

I don't really play rf2 but in theory it should be possible to export it over, although some feautures would be missing. I will look into exporting to rf2 once the track is finished/has it's full release. If it's a relatively easy process I'll definitely do it!
good

Why this silver domination???

What exactly do you mean by silver domination? If you're referring to the background texture:
Part of the background texture is still a low res rip of google maps. The textures will all be replaced with time.

Otherwise feel free to elaborate.
Thanks a lot great track
