As a G-Seat (Geko GS-105) owner I typically do not like non-official tracks as 97.2% of them do not feed my G-Seat like the official Kunos tracks do but the tracks Lemax make are made properly (completely), my G-Seat tells me, my wheel tells me, my eyes tell me and the smile on my face tells me. With that out of that way I simply love this track named Hope. Its sooo much fun gaining speed on the front straightaway going through the chicane then having to whoa-it-down for turn 1 and 2, great fun!!! And I love the flow the rest of the track has too, nice elevation changes, very addicting.
Although not required the Hope track alone is worth a donation and if you do donate you get the historic track and the point to point track, well worth it! (I haven’t race a whole lot on the historic track so I cannot comment but the point to point track is another masterpiece)
Nice! Hitting the first S-turn and into Turn 1 at speed reminds me of the feeling I get going into Eau Rouge. :)
Get the full version everyone, because the hillclimb stuff and historical circuit are a blast.
The standard layout is wonderful. Perhaps just change the bilboard skins.
The historic version is very intersting. I love the road part, even if it s a bit strange To merge circuit and road part.
I m totally fan or the hillclimb version. It s a good idea To start on the top side le the bridge. Just a problem with the starting cam.
I m not fan of downhill track in général and for this one, i don t like the Last part, finishing on the track.
Good to have one of my favorite tracks back in great quality. The animated flags are a real nice touch.
I love this track so much, I'm going to nitpick the hell out of it hoping these things may be improved:
- Those RaceDepartment billboards are an immersion breaker to me.
- The lakeshore texture when seen in the replay cameras just look ugly.
- The tree to the right of the pit exit looks weird. It looks a bit too conspicuous compared to the other vegetation. The word 'meaty' sprang to mind !!
- The tall trees to the right of the exit of the last corner stands to bee improved. They catch the eye a bit too much.
Simply stunning. I love the fact that it is truly a fantasy track, without taking real world limitations as a factor. The layout of the 'main' circuit is challenging and really fun to drive. The classic and AB layouts are also very interesting, maybe a bit bumpy and exaggerated in some areas, but a very cool addition.
Its gorgeous to look at and it runs very well fps wise. Congrats and thanks for all the hard work :)
I'm really enjoying this track. I know it's a fictional track - maybe it should have more track side objects like rows of safety tires or some other types of crash protection, but fortunately it doesn't ruin the driving experience on Hope Racetrack. I haven't tried running a race here yet, but I'm sure I'll have fun racing on this circuit too. It could use some work here or there, but I really like the feel of the surface and I love the feel of the curbs/track limits indicators. I get great FFB from this circuit. Good job!
Really good track layout for slower cars, pretty much out of nowhere for me (I never ran RFactor). I do have a few points, and a rather unusual one I guess: Track infrastructure is too unrealistic. No guardrails or tire barriers where there should be, the start-light crane and plenty of other support vehicles right in the patch of cars that might leave the track, a pit lane entry that is half car park, no barrier between the track and a lake. I don't want a Tilke-drom with 20m of runoff of course, but still, it just doesn't fell like a real permanent track because those things caught my eye even on a first lap against AI.
Performance wise it runs great, low DIP and CPU, but at the same time many objects (apart from the really detailed track surface) are rather angular and could use a few more polygons. And somehow (may be down to weather, I run the G&B weather mod) everything looks a little too pale.
