Man I love this track. You captured the feeling of it so well, it really looks like a grand prix is happening and not so empty and vacant as many standard tracks on AC. Some corners are not done right, it would be cool if you would revisit this track. Its so much fun, I wil be right here once there is a new update. I will ride my Ferrari 312 over and over on this track until FFB kills me ;)
Excellent work! This was one of my favourites in Grand Prix Legends, and I love how you captured the atmosphere!
Having said that, I read through some of the ratings here, because I recalled the track was layout slightly different in GPL.
jokacz is right - the "Gresil" corner was a flat out single apex, which was tightening a little at the end, making it a real "corner of courage" and giving great chance of overtaking on the long straight following, if the guy before you chickened out, or did not get the exit properly.
The "Scierie" corner (the one with cobble stones) is nicely done by you, but before start finish, there was a very fast right hand corner - the "Virage du Paradis" - which in your version is almost a straight line, while in the 1960s, it was also tightening, making it tricky on entry.
My favourite vintage track !
Some of the corners are totally wonderfull (the downhill after the starting line !)
If i can just ask for a improvement : create a texture folder with existing one. It allows to create our own)
Thanks a lot
I don't know if this is meant to reproduce an actual road. It seems quite huge to represent a real countryside road. Anyway, it's striking quality makes this is one of the top ten best mods for AC and even better than some original Kunos tracks.
This is a very good track and it can be seen that you put a lot of work and love for details into this track.
I startet my sim racing career with GPL so I know this original tracks for a long time. Your version remembers me of the old time.
But there are some things I miss and I probably have to live with that (more correct elevations and corner radiuses). I would wish you could make a more accurate version to the original layout. It looks like the 60s but it isnt regarding the layout, which is ok for what it is now.
I would have never touched your earlier versions with the modern look. But on this track I will return more often now with the old gp cars. Thank you!
It's a great circuit and I used to race your older version frequently (just for the last couple of turns into the straights - I love taking them at full throttle and drifting around them). With this newer version, the improvements you've mentioned have definitely improved those features, but there are still a couple of things that I would like to see improved. The crowds are one thing - the mixture of square 3D people and flat photographs of people mixed in together looks hideous. Could the 3D people be removed? I also noticed that as you drive up the hill, with clear weather, the track almost glows white (though it looks fine in replays).
If these two (admittedly) small things could be improved upon, then it'd be a great track and worthy of five stars.
Its a fantastic track - you've clearly put a lot of work in and the detail is terrific and I love the fences, trees and grass. Def worth 4 /5 stars
However - It just doesn't feel real or immersive to me. The scenery is a mishmash of old and new and I don't know what it is trying to achieve - its a bit 50/50. I wish you had stayed a bit more historically accurate if I am being truthful - like the classic Virtua_LM version from many years ago.
Don't take this as a criticism of your efforts - just a personal preference I suppose.
Omg ....thats awsome , the best old circuit in AC ......great details mate....i hope you polisch the early version that you made the same way like this .....where great... what a details .....so good.....thanks a lot... a pleasure to drive 10 stars!!!
Certainly an improvement over previous versions. Couple of critiques, the curve at Gresil is a continuous radius, single apex that should be able to be taken flat out. The corner at Scierie should be much sharper, almost a 90 degree right hander. The frame rate in general has gone down the toilet, perhaps too much 3-D foliage and trees? I really wish someone could just port the Project Cars version to AC. Thanks for all your work.
Well done. This tracks fits more in the period for our historic cars. The 3D grass gives a huge improvement. I hope you continue to improve and optimise these tracks because you already have a good base to work from. Keep up the great work
Excellent track with a ferrari. Somebody said there`s no bumps. I have rift, buttkickers and a NLMotion platform. Trust me, there are plenty of bumps and undulations. 5 laps and I`m ready for a paracetamol. LOL. Well done the author. Hours of fun.
