Circuit Updated on 08/06/2013

Haven't made a modern circuit in a while so here's my take on a fictional circuit around a lake. :bg:

AI for Formula as usual. Not much more to say. Enjoy and leave a comment. :)

EDIT: Circuit has been updated.
Code:
List of changes:
- People have been put on access roads and in village.
- Advertising boards have been smoothed out as much as possible.
- Pit lane exit limiter has been moved to behind cone rather than sunk tyre to prevent accidental trigger of limiter.
- Added kerbs in two locations to assist racing (does not change the difficulty of the circuit however).
- Added multiple sunk tyres to two of the wider turns.
- Fixed the last sand trap which appeared to leave a grass gap on the right hand side.
- Added dithering to the last runoff area.
- HMap has been smoothed at pit lane entry, access tunnel and outside the circuit.
- Moved the cones back on the esses as well as fix up the LMap on esses.

Post Re: [cir] Flores-Henshelm
I just tested this track in Hotlap mode, so here are my impressions:
  • The surroundings are all well thought of, but there's a problem with the hmap on some places, especially at the lmap underpass and at the access road next to the pit entry. Both of them could be easily fixed ;) .
  • I don't really like the looks of the "rotated" multiple sunktyres when used without a kerb. Although those corners seem to be sharp enough to use only one sunktyre, it might have looked better with three sunktyres in each of the corners. :scratch:
  • I don't quite get the use of the little road next to the fast section at the top-left. :pillepalle: If it's an access road, why isn't there any marshall on it? If it's a normal street, why is it even thinner than the roads in the village?
  • Although it looks good as it is, I think the fast section would have been a perfect spot to make some road markings there (so that the circuit is half temporary and half permanent, like Adelaide).
  • I think the adverisment boards (?) could have been smoother
And now some good things:
  • The scenery is wonderful, I especially like the bottom-left. And those cliffs :hyper:
  • The corner at the top is just cool and challenging to drive, I like it a lot :) . Same goes for the last sector, if you want to go through it full throttle, you have to be careful ;)
  • All in all, the track is just nice to drive :goodvibes:
And please don't get me wrong, I wrote a lot more negative than positive things but it's criticizing at a high standard :mrgreen: Very likely a :tom: contender.

Post Re: [cir] Flores-Henshelm
Thanks for the great reply. These are the kind of comments I wish people would give more often. :)

- I noticed the HMap after you said it. I should take more care, my mistake. :(
- I did have multiple sunk tyres on one corner but I found that when cars get pushed out it was too hard for cars to recover. I also didn't want to have sunk tyres but it was far too easy to cheat without a sunk tyre. I had to go for the most forgiving without allowing cheating. That's also why the checkpoints are extremely lenient.
- Yes, it's an access road. I know they're closely placed but I wanted to give this idea of it being a real track with multiple.
- I've made enough semi-permanent circuits as it is. Don't remind me of how tempting it was to do that though.
- The ad boards wouldn't become much smoother unless they are exactly flat.
- Thank you for noticing the bottom left. That bugged me for a while.
- I'm glad you like that top corner. Favourite section of the circuit too. :)

There's definitely some Potrero de los Funes in that track.

Only detail, when I'M driving though 1st curve and I jump over the sunk tyres by a wheel (after last cone), occasionally I'm caught by the 2nd limiter of pit exit. :shrug:

Wonderful and very entertaining track. :bowdown:

Of course there is. :up: I had to put more influence in there as soon as I dropped the lake in. :gpush: I just wanted to hide the Silverstone-esque idea I had originally

Interesting, :scratch: shame that has happened to you while racing. I tried to recreate it with multiple cars before I released it and even tried it today and I could not ever get it to happen :shrug: . I found it really difficult to hit that sunk tyre in the first place but I had a feeling that with some combination it might have popped up. Originally I had that same issue with the last corner where an AI car hit a static road cone and got caught by the limiter which involved moving the pit lane entry (and probably explains why I missed that little bit of HMap too which was covered by other things)

Probably if you'd place the limiter by same way, but on joint of the cones inside and outside, it'd be OK. I was using formula (not sure, if a UOGRCed or default one). Maybe with the tiny hmap fixes it could be enough for a quick update? :)

Since there is such request, I'll put an update up in a few hours when I get home with:

- Fix to HMap on road near pit lane, tunnel and house/road on the right.
- Add more people on access roads/village (d'oh!)
- Smooth advertising boards (where possible)
- Move second pit limiter back to be in line with the cones rather than sunk tyre
- Fix to last corner sand trap where sand appears to be missing

This track is a mix of Potrero de Los Funes and Enna-Pergusa... looks great

:happythanks:

Now it's really perfect (although I'd not say all the fixes were needed personally - kerbs and people), Crowella. :up:

Perfect track, Crowella! 5/5 :clap:
The only thing that I don't like is the lack of dithering in the access roads but this is only a small detail. :bg:
