Last post from previous page:

You've used RLE compression on them I presume?

I know nothing about rFactor editing but most textures for NR2003 start life as TGA's and I always have one of two in a track that don't have compression in them bumping the size up that I have to go back and correct.

One thing I've learnt though, you cannot please 100% of the people 100% of the time, if your track runs fine for 95% of people with large textures, forget the 5%, even if you completely redesign the track to accommodate them, they'll find something else to complain about.

Thanks erwin, I cannot wait to try out this track. I've been looking forward to this for a long time. I must confess that I laughed at this user when I was going through the comments on rFactorcentral last night...

What a douchebag :roll:

That's typical I'm afraid, some people have no appreciation for how much work goes into building a track.

Just tried it out! Great job on such a massive project. Having some texture irregularities and bad FPS on some places, but nothing that makes it undriveable. Great work on the layout!

OMG Rallycross LOL, I built a Rallisprint ROC type track for nr2k3 (even with standing starts), me and AJ had a right laugh on it one night on the server when we got bored but I never really got around to finishing it.

I need to finish this one, got so many projects which are not finished yet.

After this one i want to focus on two projects: Assen TT 1946-1954 and a fantasy track (work title "Project 1".
An updated Hondsrugring will be released this weekend too. After that i will lay down that track aside for a while.

I've done the same pretty much, it get's too much in the end sometimes, especially when there's other things going on.

For me it's the other way round, I have to finish the project when I have the motivation (usually in the same day or in next few days), otherwise I never get it done. I mean, I get brilliant stuff done in fast pace with good quality and people always liked my novels, presentations et cetera, but I cannot commit to a long-term, personal project.

About the track: Good job Erwin, it looks good and you've done an immense amount of work. Too bad I can't test it because I still don't have a gaming PC. Well, I hope you stick to track making, practice makes perfect and you're already very good it seems. :thumbsup:

Small history:
Originaly this fictional track had 1 layout: The GP-Full circuit layout. After some testing by friends, i was asked to release it as a triple layout track pack.
The National and Club circuit were added. Then after a while i decided to do something with the Intermediate circuit shortcut which was not used at that moment. I added an extra single track to build the Intermediate circuit, the short GP layout and a month later also the Rally full course layout.
The 6 layouts are:
HZ-GP circuit Full Course ( 3.973 km/ 2.46 mile)
