Gravel, tarmac, snow. Whatever the surface, you'll find it here.

Oh, it might have helped some if I read some posts beforehand... :D Is FT position free?

Yeah, I am. A bit busy right now, so if I can't finish it by, say friday, I'll give it to someone else. But I'll inform later. :bg:

Yeah sorry about that. :vsad: And I was the one who reminded people to "stick to the schedule" so this doesn't drag on like some previous projects. :doh:

I've had some unexpected health issues so I've only been working on the track here and there. I'll post it soon.
Again, apologies for the delay. :sorry:

Well hello, hello!

Took me a while, but alas here it is:

I definitely designed it to be driven counter clockwise, but works just as well clockwise. There's a hairpin at the bottom that takes you to the village/ historic city center/ market place, but the track could just as easily just continue straight ahead.

I'm not sure if I did the center piece maker a favor or (what is the opposite of a favor? :D) not, by leaving our shared border free of border walls for the track. A million thoughts about the track and things I wanted to do or should've done but better not mention them all. ;) Hmap wonky as per usual. :doh:

Thank you for your patience and thank you for including me in this project. :goodvibes:

I have to say I really like your square as well, aliman. Good job :woohoo: I'm feeling that the center square should be made next, and maybe scholl is a good contestant for this task? :)

I don't think so... it's either you or Scholl, whoever wants to go next, and whoever wants to make a piece can state it and go right ahead ;) At least that's how it used to be in the past several times

Here it is. Didn´t get anything done at work... :mrgreen:

What´s a medieval towncenter without a church?
I feel some Baku-vibes going on.

It will be difficult to place the pits in the bottom right corner but I´m sure there´s a way.

Update:

I am continuesly frustrated with the weird changing of the map after editting it outside of Track Editor. Is there an ideal program for this? I'm no expert, so i kept trying it with old school Paint and such. I vaguely remember coming across a manual thingy about it on the forum, will look for that later today.

(and no, this is not an April Fools joke). :worried:

Modern Paint tends to have problems with GR lmap's limited palette. I'd suggest you to download Paint 98 or XP for this.

Yeah, it was that problem with modern Paint i guess, what happend was that as soon as I add the edited map to the .trk thingy it would turn all green into grey and such. I've got an empty weekend, i'll try to catch up with the delay.

Don't stress Txizzle! It took me a month to finish and the previous project like five YEARS! :D So if further problems rise, we're here to help! :)

Scholl, wow! That church is amazing and fits perfectly the style of the map. I have one criticism though. I absolutely hate it when I have to drive over the drawings, it completely breaks the illusion. So if we could switch the place of the church so that it doesn't cover the track that would be amazing. Is that possible?
