Post [rwl] [cir] [evo] [tpk] Silverstone 1948-87
Hello :wave:

I began these a few months ago, then got bored of trackmaking through august, but recently had a desire to finish them. So here are the first three incarnations of Silverstone.
Obviously being so long ago, theres not a lot of resources for great accuracy, but i can tell you, ive gone through lots photos and videos trying to find anything to fill in some of the gaps (thanks to Ivo for supplying some of them :bg: ) so some things may be wrong, such as when things were built/destroyed (in particular the hangers on hanger straight :headbang: ), but its as accurate as i could make them.

just a few other explanations... the 1948 version has the 'lights' in the middle of the runway. In 1948 with the cars heading directly towards each other, they put up a canvas sheet in the way so drivers wouldnt be distracted by on coming cars. Where i have used concrete posts marking corners is to resemble the oil drums they used to use to mark out the course. a little damaging for GR i put some hay bales in between them to soften the blow.

i hope you enjoy them, there may be more to come :shhh:

Comments welcome :up:

Cheers, BBA!

1967 version
1978 version
1987 version

I very like that pack, asphalt texture is just great, maybe the airstrip needs a better one. Some details that I dislike: every man standing nearly track is looking same, clone attack? Cars on the parking - there are probably too much of them, I'm not sure that people had so much cars those years ;)

:iagree: with zero
maybe you could do those typical runway paintings (I think they are still there in silverstone today)

and I personally think that the grass is a bit too green and the infield is too empty
it might have been like that in real life but i think it's a bit "boring"

otherwise it's simply great

He means evolution, how track changes in years. :mrgreen:

I really like these kinds of track(pack)s, but the first bad thing is too many cars. Otherwise its great! :clap:

In fact I think, that there is too few lmap cars now, the track was obviously flooded by them during meetings like anthill. :D Maybe problem of the runway texture is, that it's not parallel to the runway's direction. :scratch: With infield no problem, it's still almost untouched airfield (int must have empty place to avoid crashes) - 3-5 years after war there was almost no development, so I don't expect, that you missed anything important. :)

Definitely great pack. :bg: And the proportion of straights rules. :rocks:

Please make more historic tracks :yummy: this one is great (and previous versions too ;) )
I didn´t even know about 1948 layout, it seems quite dangerous to me because of those two opposite straights in the middle :D

good job :)

Post Silverstone 1978
i found this one whilst looking through my GR folder the other day, it got left behind.

so i made a few tiny updates and was ready to add it the this thread. Then out comes a new GR, so i had a play with v1.10 and did a version for that too... :scratch: both versions include a National circuit.

:2c: my trackmaking is very rusty :sorry:

enjoy,
BBA!

one last version...

1987, I may as well release it, the chicane is a bit fast which was the reason for it sitting in the folder :shrug:
