    Hello!

    This is the first public version of my fantasy race track mod for Assetto Corsa. I usually make 3D car models for selling on Asset Store, if anyone is interested in my work, here is a link to my website (it's still in progress, will finish it when I have more time):
    https://www.retrocartooncars.com/

    Anyway, since I bought a racing wheel for my PC this summer, I have been enjoying racing simulators, especially Assetto Corsa.
    So I decided to make my own track for it. It's now roughly 3 months of work, and I hope to finish it in January 2019.

    *About Track
    More about the track now. It is fictional, located on the edge of mega-city, in future. One part goes through the mountains, and other end of the track reaches city with it's skyscrapers. In the center there is a huge loop, surrounded by seats for spectators.

    *Track's Purpose

    I designed the track for myself as a training ground, so I put in all the things that I find difficult to drive correctly - long corners, intense braking zones before chicanes, S's etc.


    *Design choices

    Just as important, I made the track "friendly" for my hardware setup - I only use one monitor setup, so driving a track like Monaco is not really enjoyable because I simply don't see the corners/apexes. So track is fast, with only a few tight corners. Also, I made track pretty narrow to learn racing between other cars. That is now showing problems - AI is always causing crashes on first laps.
    From visual standpoint I tried to make it tight, with a lot of objects close to the track to enhance the sense of speed. I think I went too far with my fantasy, as there is a lot of work to do to complete everything.
    My favourite tracks are classics - Spa, Monza, Red Bull Ring.
    Don't ne surprised if track looks cartoony - that is done on purpose. I was getting a bit bored of most race tracks in AC and rF2 looking stale. Mostly because the grass looks dead, rotten and lights are lacking contrast. Some tracks really look like an old 3D game from 2003 with no shadows or contrast.

    *Features

    *Track is not very wide - around 10-12 meters.
    * 4 layouts: Full course, Mountain Run, City Run and Sprint. I haven't measured it yet, but Full Course is at least 5000-7000 meters long and my best time with F1 Ferrari F2004 is 2:30. Sprint version is a lot shorter, but still takes 1:30.
    * 30 pit boxes.
    Main geometry is over 1 million polys, plus 3 levels of grass add roughly another 1.5 million.



    TO DO after 0.6


    *Rocks in the mountain section
    * Finish marshal texture.
    * Catwalks over track
    * Chalk drawings on tarmac in Favelas
    * Maybe some hot air baloons
    * Sections.ini
    * Static cameras
    * Lamp posts
    * Optimization





    I make this track in my spare time, often till late at night. If you enjoy the track and want to buy me a coffee, use the button below. Thanks!

    Really enjoyed this track, as some interesting flowing sections and some nice technical sections. Flows together in a believable way and something little different to the norm. Only feedback id give is to mix up the camera angels in the long tunnel!

    Thanks! An excellent and very entertaining track. On my end the colouring feels a bit "oversaturated" compared to other mod and vanilla tracks, so i chose to rate 4/5 stars. Anyway a great track well worth downloading.

    Great track! Only far too many updates. You will always find things to improve on such a long track, so maybe it's better to hold the updates until you've made enough changes?

      I will continue updating. If I don't include message I guess it will not send a notification.

    Realy nice work, love the sprint well done. I just notice after 0.3 map ini are missing except for first layout Full circuit. I have copy maps from previous version all fine.

    Thanks for your nice work.

      Thanks! I noticed that some layouts worked for me at first, but after playing the map just stopped working properly. I generated and copied map.png and map.ini from steam folder to my development folder - they were indeed missing.

    Everything else is just everything else!

    The flags are a brilliant addition I wouldn't think of but they help visualize the 3d aspect. Track is first class all the way - that chicane is very nicely painted up, one of many very nice parts on this track.
