Help with new tracks

Post by bb49 » 12.02.2014, 23:36

Hi
Im not that well known on the gp2 forum board.

Anyhow I have been very keen on using Grand Prix 2 since I received it a Christmas present in 1996. I haven't played it continually but on and off over the last 18 years. I came across track editing in 06/07 and was enthralled to try out the new tracks.

I have eventually made a lot of my own tracks. I'd love to start submitting these to the website.

However, I was hoping someone could make graphics for my tracks. If you think I'm lazy, well, I think everyone has different talent. I've got track design, pitlane and cc-line down pat. I could feasibly make basic graphics for some of my tracks, like grandstand here, tree there... but I know today's new tracks are far more advanced. 'String theory' goes right over my head that's for sure... ](*,)

I am submitting bitmap images of my track layouts copied direct from track editor, so there's no added frills... I have done whatever I can to make tracks that are unique, interesting and perhaps nothing like those tracks already on the website or any other website. If anyone likes any particular track just message me and I'll send it to you. You will get co-authorship of the track if I ever finally submit it.

Hope someone will find some of these tracks interesting... The best ones are Chateaubriant, Rosengarten, Debrecenring, and Salihorsk, but Altamura and Jokkmokk are fun to drive, and I have a soft spot for Panevezys

BTW They all have cc-line and there's about another 20 I am working on the cc-line...

That's overwhelming amount of tracks :shock:

Great to see a new editor amongst us :D That enthrallment sounds familiar, I remember how fascinating it was to start making own tracks. That layout creating is really fun part, that's a thing I haven't done long time, I think layouts would be quite different today. Those layouts are unique for sure, it's like every track has (or is) it's own finger print. I've learned that some parts still will look similar to some tracks since there is so many tracks out there, but that doesn't matter.

That Peterborough track reminds me a fictious track that I made many years ago. It was (meant to be) a street circuit, but after the layout, pits and cc-line, when it was time to test it properly, I realised that it was too slow and most turns didn't workout like I wanted when driving it as a whole track, so gave up on it and started other tracks (I dont' mean that it would be the case in this track).

There is many tracks that looks interesting, and some (hmm... all?) should be driven to be sure. That Rosengarten looks indeed fun to drive, long track with lots of variation, and that's one if there's to pick favorite already:) I like many of those shorter tracks too.

About talent(s), that's a thing that can't think of, since editing is thing of fun and wages ain't paid by of it, so I do what I like :mrgreen:

I have said this somewhere and say it again: layout is what matters, rest is just icing on the cake, so wouldn't bother too much of the scenery and the objects. For me it seem to take ages to do sceneries that I've worked with, and that is costly for track quantity or other areas of editing. Unfortunately I have more than enough track projects unfinished, one half giant going now what to aim at the moment, so can't offer any help on it now. Or how about throwing hour or two for some objects or so on to the track, on a good day anything is possible :wink:

It looks like that there will be many releases in the future, splendid!

And as a side note about new track releases and also since send a track to Andreas but havent' heard anything in long time: what has happened to track releases, last time for a new release it was year 2012?

I'm using my own track graphics for my in house NFSF championship so for me graphics doesn't matter. :) Amazing work, by the way, I hope that all the tracks will be uploaded.

Hi

I have actually made graphics for three of my tracks; Rosengarten, Salihorsk and Lavanggu, which is a new one...

It's not that hard Like CC-Line but so many things I don't understand, particularly like how sometimes the graphics I create myself just don't show up in the game.... or the texture doesn't actually get affixed to a ribbon, etc.


I would show the screenshots, but I couldn't find out about how to do it. If anyone can point me in the direction on how to make, like where the tutorial is or what util to use


I guess I should email my finished tracks to AAS?
