Mascot submitted a new resource:

Balloon Fiesta add-on for almost any track - One new dynamic blimp and thirty new dynamic balloons with randomised starting positions

This will add 30 new unique balloon models and a new Fujifilm blimp to any track in Assetto Corsa, including dynamic object configs for each model. Both the balloons and blimp will start in slightly random positions and move slowly over time.
Balloon models are small and simple so you shouldn't notice any effect on your frame rates.
If it's worth doing, then it's worth over-doing.
Thanks once again to Tberg/Lilski for the blimp model.
Best observed in an open-topped vehicle during the day...

been enjoying adding these to tracks this afternoon, i haven't noticed, and perhaps a challenge for you... can you take the flame from a car and have it as a burner in the balloon that randomly fires :O_o::geek: i dint know if its possible considering the variables to make the backfire flames.

Interesting idea! Not sure if it's possible with dynamic models though. I'll ask around.

Balloons can be made to flare as if burners are being fired, but adding the actual flame itself could be a pretty nice detail.

I was going to write "That's my blimp-model!", before I saw your thanks. So now I'll just write: you're welcome!
:p

Ah, cool - glad you're OK with it. I checked with Lilski and he said the blimp model was yours but he thought you'd left the modding scene but that you'd be happy if credited. I was sure I'd dropped you a direct note about it quite a while ago but can't find evidence of it here. Maybe on another forum?
Anyway, glad you're cool with it being appropriated and thanks again.
:thumbsup:

Is that enough for you? They don't seem to be drifting around though so must be something I've broken in my attempts to get 1000 of em in the sky.

I've just got back home and it's late so probably won't have a chance to test this until tomorrow, but it looks just as crazy as I imagined...! :roflmao:
The balloons are set to move quite slowly so you might not notice it. I didn't want them all shooting off after a couple of laps.
Top work on the config mate. Still want you face on a balloon? :)

To be immortalised forever on a balloon at Spa or LA Canyons...you bet lol. I'll sort one out later ;)

That is brilliant. I never knew a racing sim could make me laugh so much. Now I'm thinking "the skies the limit" Shall we try for a million?
Why stop at a million..?
;)
It's actually quite trippy driving under a canopy of 1,000 balloons in an open-topped car in VR. You can really sense the mass of this huge canopy floating above you.
Fun exercise - thanks for helping!

No worries, can't believe it's actually worked out so well and looks really good. Yeah I bet it's mad in VR. Unfortunately I haven't gone down that route yet but I'm still finding myself pulling up at the side of the track to stare at all the wondrous balloons above me. Isle of Man was a funny track to try it out and to see a huge cloud of balloons hovering ominously in the distance :roflmao: If you need any more help with scripts give me a shout as i think my mate secretly enjoyed writing something a bit different to his normal boring coding stuff.
