    NASCAR Camping World Trucks!


    These Trucks I have made to race on the limits of their tires and handling properties.
    Engine heating/cooling, tire heating/cooling and AI speeds are all designed to make it possible to race as hard as the user possibly can!

    Oval configurations selectable via Showroom menu

    I converted these to make them playable in AMS
    - Tires
    - Physics
    - AI talent
    - Engine
    - Setups

    This mod was already very good and is even better with options of FFB, road and ovals (tested in Mosport Park and Fontana with improved cockpit eyepoint). If it were possible, six stars. Thank you very much.

    I can not keep up with too frequent updates. I will download at the time that has changed the numbers of the first decimal place.

      Author's Response
      Modding is extremely complicated, detailed and time intensive.
      If the online works for people, these versions will absolutely be the last.
      The first decimal place will not be changed as these are the final, and very small modifications.

      As well, I have added download links via DropBox for the updated files only.

    The trucks are a lot of fun to drive, and the sound is great. They're tricky on corner exit, as I would expect them to be.

    Two things I noticed to maybe take into consideration: The engine stalls in neutral, even when it's warm after a few laps. The second thing are the shadows. Whenever you go through a shadow, the whole screen becomes darker, as if the shadow would not only affect the cockpit, but also the track ("world") itself.

      Thank you!
      The engine issue is something that I love and hate.

      Easiest way to modify:
      In: CTS_Engine_RC.ini
      Modify: IdleRPMLogic=(1200, 1450)
      Modify 1200-1450 to a higher number
      At idle the engine can sustain itself.. but if you get off of the clutch it can add just enough resistance to cause the engine to stall.

      I kept this in because it makes boring moments a little more fun.

    If you have ANY interest (and even if you have no interest) in NASCAR racing then as far as i know this is the only mod for ams that exists in this criteria, (please let me know if im wrong as id love more NASCAR racing mods for ams) and god, its a great mod.

    This mod provides incredibly close and intense racing. The physics are amazing, the cars look incredible inside and out. I have many many mods downloaded for ams and this is my most used mod, and I mainly race these on road circuits!

    Very very thankful that there is finally a NASCAR mod for ams, thank you very much, cannot fault this mod one bit. 10/10 A**

    I tested for six hours today and had fun. Very good at JNS Indianapolis, Kentuky, Pocono and Phoenix; also in 1965 Monza, Zandvoort and Silverstone; and in the current outer ring of Brasília and Buneos Aires No. 7. To my surprise, AI worked very badly at Watkins Glen and Road America. I use since v1.0. Thank you so much for all your effort. Great work on this conversion.

      Watkins and Road America?
      Very likely to be caused by Random events such as crash probability.
      I have done several races at both of these tracks with excellent results!

      Thank you for reviewing! :)

    I just like to thank you for all your effort. Your commitment to this mod made it fantastic. The mod is very lightweight, sounds are very good, handling is very nice, liveries are very good, the AI is on Reiza's level (I'm using your Pro talent files :-) )

    I know this cars are made for oval, but I'm having the best time with them in Interlagos, Jacarepagua 2005, Montreal, Spielberg.

    I'm following your updates since v1.0, and I can tell how much the mod improved.

    Keep up this good work, man! Cheers!

      The default/AI setup is tailored for road.

    Thanks great mod

    Just a heads up to anyone uses OVGME to package all content
    in Steam

    You will get a error when de-activating this mod for the first time, when try to activate again it won't install

    This can be caused by hidden thumbs or read-only files

    1. De-activate your Mod

    2. Go into STEAM\steamapps\common\Automobilista\Series and delete VHRCTS.tga that has been left behind

    3. Open your mod package Series\VHRCTS.tga Properties
    and un-tick "Read-Only" and Apply

    4. Activate mod

    all good

      The .TGA file will no longer be 'read-only' in the next, and likely last update!

      Thank you for pointing this out

    While it is very good and I've just had a fun race with them I’m not sure the mod is worth the full five stars in it’s current state. But I do really admire your commitment to keep improving it and that’s certainly worth a five.
    Now the glowing car thing seems to be sorted, which was a deal breaker for me before, these will be getting some use now so can I ask if there a paint kit that goes with them?

    Although I am not familiar with this genre, it was becoming a pleasure MOD.
    However, why I reduced it is because it is texture processing like the image below. The course is Fontana.

    Pretty nice Poop. The only thing that would make me happier would be a positive up shift. The clutch slipping is not good.
    1. Poopenshnapples
      Author's Response
      Thank you!
      The reason it is not instantaneous is entirely for the AI's use of the clutch and their shifting technique(s)

      In v1.8:
      The values in VHRtruck.hdv:
      UpshiftDelay=0.015 //from 0.125
      UpshiftClutchTime=0.04 //from 0.225
      DownshiftDelay=0.125
      DownshiftClutchTime=0.225

      Modify these all you want!

    (Most) Kinks have been ironed out. Overall a lot of fun to drive these trucks, and it certainly fits my driving style better. My only complaint is that the AI seem a little awkward about the reverse gear, but the developer says he can't really fix that part. Otherwise, a great mod that is worth a try!
    1. Poopenshnapples
      Author's Response
      Thank you Dat-Mudkip!
      I cannot do anything about the AI reversing... If I could, I definitely would!

      Due to this game-AI bug I have had many good laughs!
