Currently, I am working on three tracks for GPL release.  One of them has been in the works for a few years - mostly due to lack of texture help and expertise.

1) Thunderhill Raceway East - 3-mile track, formerly Thunderhill Long, but they added a WEST raceway to combine the two into a possible 5-mile track.
  • GTK is complete
  • Most TSOs are complete
The track is basically ready for release - just I am a perfectionist and I am not happy with my texturing capabilities.  Of course being a perfectionist, I am still messing with a bypass section of the track at Turn 5... but I could release the track with the current version, it just wont be as pretty.

I need help texturing, perhaps mapping advice to help textures look better.

2) Pau Arnos.  A 3KM club track Northwest of Pau, France.  Lots of elevation and great character
  • The GTK is almost done, just adding elevation
  • No textures or TSOs are done at all.
3) Nelson Ledges - a nearly 2 mile road course in Northeast Ohio, near Warren... not far from Cleveland
  • GTK is almost done for this one too.
  • Not started elevations, but it is mostly flat
  • No textures
  • No TSOs, but there aren't many to begin with.
Den Hill has been helping me, but he is time restricted.

Anyone interested in getting in on helping me with these projects?  Anyone have a flow chart for track making with teams? (I've done the tracks in the past as solo endeavors.


I am trying some (as far as I know) untried methods with Thunderhill at least, and plan to do more of the same with Pau Arnos.

Best.
Lou

How would you like to share info?  I have a sub-forum on my LoPeN forums, or we can make a private forum here.

Is it the "Editors Hangout" section? I think I already had access to that.  If somewhere else, PM me with a link please.

you can't be any more amateur than me!  How did you like the ads in AutoSimSport Magazine?  I did most of those graphics...  that's how my track textures look too :pathead2:

Well...

I did not have a look to the AutoSimSport Magazine... In fact I don't know where it is... Would you be so kind to give me a link...?...

I've just downloaded your track  :)

Btw, thanks a lot for Bridgehampton and Norisring ! Two great tracks ! And with the Add-Ons they are absolutely beautiful !  :thumbup:
