ClimaxF1 submitted a new resource:

Silverstone Complete Track Texture Update - Realistic look for Silverstone & F1 Skin Pack | Only High Res. Textures

Hi Guys

What started off with just a few banners became a complete update.

There's not much freedom with the banners due to the mapping of them. Tried several versions and designs and this is the best way to place all logos. I've placed all banners in such a way that there's flow around the track and also looks good to the eye.

Update details v1.0:

- New tarmac
- Reworked groove
- Reworked tire marks
- New green tarmac or run offs
- New truck skins (DHL, Pirelli, Sky Sports...

@Peter Boese

Hi Guys

Does anyone know which texture is used for the red and white walls at Silverstone.

Have figured every other wall except for this one, just can't find the texture.

Use the Objects Inspector app, with that you can just select the wall and it tells you the name of the texture

Never tried that before, where and how do I use the Objects Inspector app?
@Hoksu

Just found it, never too old to learn something new, this will make my track updates a lot more fun, thank you for pointing me in the right direction. :)

Main straight is impossible to add the Pirelli banner because it shows all over...

Thank you for this. The new textures look great.
I was wondering if you could possible make the grass a little darker? One thing that has always bugged me about AC Silverstone is how yellow the grass looks.
This is something I could fix myself, but was wondering if maybe you'd like to include it in your own textures.

I am enjoying this overhaul.....one question. Can you (or I) make the road surface reflect light a bit better. Since there are not really and lights on the track the road is very dark at night. It seems headlights do little to illuminate it. other tracks do not have this issue.

To be honest I wouldn't know how to change that, my work work is only a texture update.

I did test the tarmac at low lighting and that was fine.

Hopefully someone will read this and be able to answer your question.

Thank you. After 7 years, the grass at Silverstone finally looks like grass!
Normally the grass and trees are the first thing I do with any track. Was happy at first but after I tweaked it a bit the difference was better than I thought it would be.

Enjoy :)

ClimaxF1 updated Silverstone Complete Track Texture Update with a new update entry:

New podium and more new textures

Hi Guys

Wasn't happy with the podium I did yesterday, came up with a similar design, definitely looks the part which is always a good thing.

Didn't like the Pokerbet logos either on the corner direction boards, the red logos also throws me off my braking points all the time so I reverted to the Crypto one.

Created a new Crypto one with some texture and shading for that extra realism :)

Don't forget to deselect skins in CM and select skin folder again to activate the new textures...

ClimaxF1 updated Silverstone Complete Track Texture Update with a new update entry:

New feather flags & Medical Center texture

Hi Guys

This has to be the last update, was playing around with different flag designs and thought it would also be a good way to use the F1 Paddock logo which is missing from the track.

Also whilst looking at different images of Silverstone I found a better Medical Center photo that I could edit.

Don't forget to deselect skins in CM and select skin folder again to activate the new textures.

Update details v1.52:

- F1 Paddock Club & Aramco feather flags added
- New...
