In the Dead of Winter -- New Nordschleife season! 1.1

Happy New Year friends! It's been a long time since I uploaded a mod! But I'm back, and will be working on projects, albeit intermittently :)

Ever wanted to race at the Nordschleife during the off-season or the initial VLN races? I know for me I prefer the look of the Green Hell in winter. Now, you can become Connor DiPhillippi in Assetto Corsa with this mod! Simply drop the new files in the ks_nordschleife location, or as the readme.ini indicates :) This effectively provides 3 seasons at the Nurburgring now: summer, autumn (with some of the fine mods already here at RD) and winter!

Absolutely stunning, thanks for your work!
great mod
Absolutely stellar work! Went to the 'Schleife last week, track was closed because of snow, but this looks very, very nice and accurate compared to my pictures (we went to quite a few corners)
Really gloomy, damp great atmosphere, feels allot closer to the reality you see in most of the footage from the place. Great work.
Just excellent! great atmosphere. Thank you
Wow! that is most authentic, great atmosphere.
Feels like a cold day in winter, very immersive.
Texturing and trees are a work of Art.
Very well done get a job at AC
Every update is a game changer. It´s one of the best work outthere. Thank you so much for this incredible piece of art.

You are most welcome, Dreamliner, still tweaking little things slowly but surely through the track's 300 or so texture files...another update may be coming :)
Really love this. Thanks!
Great quality, like usual. Thank you!

would you like to reduce branch of trees like in the winter monza track ? im sure this makes the trees look more beautiful in far distances..thanks
Bernd Graf
Bernd Graf
I'm sorry, what? Reduce branch of trees?
Looks nice so five stars, but have I just overwritten the default Kunos Nords? I can't activate this as a mod using JSGME, and now when I select the Kunos Nords this winter version loads. How do I get the original Nords back, and how do I switch between the two..? I've got a horrible feeling my default Kunos Nords has gone for good. Please don't suggest verifying Steam cache as that will bork a whole host of other mods.

Unless you crack open the Nords kn5 file, you cannot overwrite the original game files...they exist in a hidden folder. The file destination of these files essentially override the summer foliage coded by Simone :) Deleting them will revert the Nordschleife.
Great to have you back, Bernd!! Nice work on the trees, very immersive :-)
Many thanks for this great mod. It´s a pleasure to drive and explore the Schleife in this condition. Looks like a total new track in Assetto right now.
Great Quality without any doubts.

I typically compress all necessary files down to DXT5 or lower for convenience...not as good as uncompressed files, but AC works on such a variety of platforms, why stop? plus, it boosted the fps I get there by 5...I love fps gains!
Excellent layout/scenery! But this does overwrite the Original Nordschleife(?) I'm doing something wrong I guess. Where do I put the files? Thanks anyway. Cheers Robin_NL
That's so fantastic! i have found this track mod by https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PR_K5jKGans&t=324s thank you very much Bernd Graf!
Excellent idea, much more realistic than usual winter mods. Looks stunning.
Welcome Back Bernd
Awesome job as always , thanks ! ;)

Bernd Graf
Thank you, Jerry! Will be back in a small way, but I love AC and have been away too long!
Thank you very much!
Excellent version of the "Green Hell"!
I love your rendition of the Winter Nordschleife.
It's absolutely fantastic.
I don't like the icy asphalt/tarmac textures as well.
So, your winter mod is highly appreciated.

I hope that is okay when I link two videos.
The first one is a German Let's Play and the second one is a replay where your stunning and beautiful work can be seen even better:

Nochmals auf Deutsch:
Vielen herzlichen Dank für Deine bezaubernde Version der Nordschleife! Ich habe ein Faible für solche Mods und Deine Winterschleife ist wirklich großartig! Super Arbeit!
Die kahlen Bäume wirken unglaublich authentisch!
Ganz hervorragend gemacht!
Deine Nordschleifen-Version bleibt jetzt vorerst meine Standard-Nordschleife in Assetto Corsa.

Ich finde es übrigens gut, dass Du nicht diese komische JSGME-Version gemacht hast; benutze es nicht (mehr) und für mich war es so viel einfacher, alles in einen extra Ordner unter Skins zu extrahieren und von dort aus dann die Original-Files im "default"-Ordner zu überschreiben, sodass ich alles immer beisammen habe und selber weiß, welche Dateien überschrieben wurden.
Vielen vielen Dank und gutes neues Jahr!
(Ein tolles Neujahrsgeschenk von Dir! :-) )

I love the videos! Flattered to see my work on YouTube! Looks very close graphically to how my game looks...I use my own graphics mod which is still in the final stages of development :) Thank you so much! More tracks coming, as many as I can make multi-season :)
This is an amazing job.
I was growing weary of the autumn mod. We don't have rain etc... but at least we got autumn and now winter !
Thanks a lot and happy new year !

I have my own autumn that I will be releasing...I personally think it's a little better, but hey...honestly, I love them all. I have folders named for all 4 seasons in each track filepath...I just drop all necessary files depending on the look I want, so easy, instantly changes the character of the track. In these winter months, I love to do my hotlaps with the AI on, like 19Bozzy92's videos :)
perfect job thanks hope to see more tracks like this
Bernd Graf
Bernd Graf
And you shall ;) As many as I can make the files for :)
Awesome addition to the most awesome track! Thank you and happy new year!

To you as well! Ready for my VLN replays :D
Amazing! 5 Stars for you!
Thank you very much for your work !
Very nice to accord AC track to reality weather.
+1 for using this with JSGME, easy way to enable or disable great mod like this.
Super realistic combo + GW and BMW E30 Gr.A
Tks
Gracias,Thanks
Superb work, well done! I recommend using it with the JSGME tool though, quicker to reverse changes or switch to another season. If you are using the Real Billboards & Stuff by Joshkerr, JSGME will tell you that some files need to be overwritten - agree. It doesn't change a thing, even when you will deactivate Bernd's mod.
Finally. A winter Nordschleife that isn't covered in snow. Just makes it seasonal without the unrealistic idea of driving a GT3 on a snowy track xD

Ross, my thinking exactly. Mind, I love Tor Poznan in snow...but if I'm honest, completely breaks immersion, as it's largely impossible to drive in such weather. I love winter tracks when the trees are bare...working on a winter Monza to replicate the track we've all watched Bozzy1992 film :)
