That's great, thanks for the support... And glad you love Angeles Crest in real life and that you're finding it so accurate! Especially as I'm over 5,400 miles away. Have fun and drive safe!

Fantastic. Always loved watching Matt driving cars I can't afford through the canyon, and now I get to. Roads feel great and the little touches are well done. Thanks for this

Thanks, watching Matt Farah driving cars I can't afford started this project in the first place. It's also great that Matt was cool enough to take time to drive LA Canyons. Especially as he has access to awesome cars and the real roads.
superbe

Thanks Jazz, have fun!
Awesome mod, but how do I spawn at the same place as my friend in MP? We spawn at two different locations.
Phoenix77

Thanks, glad you think LA Canyons is Awesome... Use Freeroam to start near each other, Freeroam Distant / Freeroam VIP spreads the pit boxes over ALL the roads, with the intention of instant traffic.
BEST open-world-track in AC!! awesome. Watch it:

Really enjoy the free version. Well worth decent coffee money :)

Phoenix77
Thanks Alex, drive safely & have fun! :)
This is THE card that is absolutely necessary in his game. Beautiful, relaxing, we would spend more time looking around than the road, in fact.
Thanks.

Thanks Papy, glad you're enjoying your scenic drives in the mountains! Cheers!
Just found this Road mod and am enjoying the relaxing drive in beautiful scenery... Thanks

Thanks glad you're enjoying your scenic drives :)
Such passion, you can stop anywhere and enjoy all the little details.
After reading about the extra VIP stuff I coudn't help thinking that it would be a quick cash grab, but after trying it out I was astonished, how wrong I was, there's just a lot in this.
Thank you!
Phoenix77
Phoenix77
Cheers Wesley, glad your initial thoughts were proved wrong :)
A quick cash grab?... It would have been quicker and more lucrative stacking shelves in a supermarket.
Just far less rewarding in a creative way.
Fun Driving, love driving the LA CAnyons.

Thanks Munmar, have fun :)
This track is nothing short of amazing, I keep coming back to it time and time again. Very relaxing and exciting to drive. Definitely a must have in your AC track library!

Thanks LlamaKing, glad you think LA Canyons is amazing!
Have fun, cheers!
Excellent work. Question: Is it possible to do real lap in free version? If so where is the starting point of lap?
Phoenix77
Phoenix77
Thanks Petri.
A real lap? That would be on Normal/Reverse layouts.. and there are start / finish lines on the road (white lines). These lines aren't visible in Freeroam layouts, as the freeroam layouts are untouched... E.g no one has come along painting white lines on the road.
omg why you make this beautyfull track???
thx man.... you make my game experience more and more
Phoenix77
Phoenix77
Thanks Dimas, glad you're enjoying it :)
I got pointed this direction by the VR sim community, played some of the normal version, and recently sent you a little support as thanks for the incredible hard work.

Anyone reading this who may be on the fence: as a Southern Californian who has actually driven on these roads, what has been accomplished here is nothing short of breathtaking and even in the normal version, there are tons of incredible little secrets and side-paths to find. A huge number of real-world locations have been recreated here, and anything from a leisurely drive to a point-to-point sprint are incredible fun, especially in VR if you can manage it.

Highly recommended addon for AC!

Thanks a lot for your Awesome review!
Glad you're loving what has been achieved here...
Always nice to hear from people local to the real roads :)
Hello.
Yesterday I donated you money for a beer because I really liked your LA Canyons map for Assetto Corsa. I wonder when will u send me a link or something for the VIP version. Have a nice day!

Hi, thanks for the support & rating,
As I've had to say a number of times...
It may have gone to your emails Spam Folder.
just excellent ! i will donate, and maybe received the extras ! ;-)
Phoenix77
Phoenix77
Thanks Assetto Works!
This is my goto track to just have fun driving without trying to beat my time. Riding at night lights-on is very fun.
Phoenix77
Phoenix77
Thanks Gilles, glad LA Canyons is your goto track :)
TL;DR - Wow, A true Masterpiece... accept your own flaws

Story
I first drove on this map about 18 months ago. New to having a wheel and getting into driving in Assetto Corsa with a single decent size monitor and I thought I'd download and play.
I jumped straight into something dumb fast thinking "American roads are so wide and dull, so meh." Drive a few corners, going much too fast, lose concentration, crash and burn. Obviously your fault, map is rubbish. Rinse and repeat for about a week...
Then, with a baby incoming, I move house and can't use my wheel, nowhere to play.
I bought a VR for Christmas and moved again recently, new man cave. Finally I have my wheel set up again and getting back into AC, only now in VR. Downloaded your map again.
Jumped into Shaun Clarke's stellar Ginetta G40 Junior (100bhp whoop whoop) and think I'll go for a drive.
Now I'm in a slow but nice handling car, with all the depth and immersion of VR, with SOL and Ilja's shaders and It's real... I'm on the L.A Canyons, that corner looks sharp, best slow down... focus... concentrate... WOW!
Just spent 20 minutes doing a lap (Never said i was fast) and had to turn off AC to donate and write this. Thank you Phoenix77, thank you... Now I'm going back to L.A... See ya.
Phoenix77

Thanks for the in depth review... Love it!
Glad you realised it wasn't the maps fault :D

Congratulations on Fatherhood and the new man cave!
Really nice to drive on the roads. Looking forward to explore in the VIP sector. Thanks!
Phoenix77
Phoenix77
Thanks Claudio!
Really great mod that adds massively to the game. Genuinely better than a lot of officially released addons for a lot of games, you should be proud. Enjoy your beer/coffee, you've earned it (and I'm excited to see the VIP version!)
Phoenix77
Phoenix77
Thanks Gibbons... Thanks for the support, have fun exploring all the other areas :)
Btw a great way of learning all the roads is cruising online with other drivers. Have fun!
I like it

Phoenix77
Thanks for rating :)
excellent map, but how do I get the 1.0 VIP version ? do I have to pay for it again ? I've paid for 0.81 version of this map
Phoenix77
Phoenix77
Thanks for the review, I've sent out the VIP version to everyone has recently sent a UK coffee... And also to those that very generously sent multiple coffees in the past.

Unfortunately I can't send out infinite updates for any lower donations (than a UK coffee) due to the administration involved.
I have been more than flexible enough in the past at what qualifies as a coffee. Since then this flexibility has been... pushed.

Just to clarify... The VIP extras are not (not currently anyway) payware. Donations (100% optional) are supposed to be to say thanks for the hundreds of hours of work on the regular version. Then I thank that support by sending another 73kms of road.
Wowza, great work and soo much fun !
Phoenix77
Phoenix77
Thanks for reviewing Rob, really glad you're having so much fun!
This is simply awesome!
VIP package is a brilliant extension, worth every single cent.
Think LAC simply increases value of AC, I would by AC again simply to enjoy this brilliant mod.
Kudos!
Phoenix77
Phoenix77
Thanks Franceska!
That's really nice to know you think LA Canyons increases the value of AC. Glad to add to what is already a great game.
Have fun!
This track completely refreshed my love for Assetto Corsa. Getting a fun car and blasting the canyons is so much fun. Well done!!

Cool night run, thanks for reviewing!
Great to know the San Gabriels has refreshed AC for you!
Really great, just played it with friends and immediately donated. Looking forward to the vip version

Thanks for the support Eragoss, I hope you and your friends are having fun :)
Absolutely incredible detail and quality on such a massive scale, hands down one of the best map mods made to any racing game, hats of to everyone who has contributed to this project absolutely stunning !!!
Phoenix77
Phoenix77
Thanks Tumppu, really glad you can appreciate the massive scale... I didn't actually realise this before, but the main terrain of LA Canyons has X2 the area of Grand Theft Auto V!

Thanks for reviewing!
THIS IS AMAZING! Tried to donate to support and get the VIP content but the paypal link dosnt seem to work!
Phoenix77
Phoenix77
Thanks for Reviewing, Not sure what the what the PayPal link issue was... Should work fine!
I just donated via paypal for VIP version, and ... where do I get it??
Phoenix77
Phoenix77
Thanks, any donations of a UK coffee and above (I've not specified an amount to keep that a little flexible) and I send an email (to the email linked to the PayPal the donation came from) Be aware this email can often go to email spam folders!
This map is incredible !, and I have been driving for a long time.
But two months ago I sent money for a coffee, but I have not received the VIP version, I do not know if that is normal, but I would like to be able to enjoy those extra kilometers.
Good job, I'm waiting for an answer.
