David M's Tracks Corner - dmarques - 05-02-2017

Here are a few tracks which I have converted/upgraded over the years. From now on, some of these tracks will be needed and will have to be downloaded in order for my mods to work properly. Each of my mods' threads will indicate which circuits will be needed from this list. If a track indicates that it will replace the default circuits, I suggest you backup the track before installing this new version in case you want to revert back:

New Helicopter Textures
I've replaced the default F1C helicopter with a new one. You'll have to download the new helicopter textures and add them to your Vehicles\CMAPS.MAS file since some of my tracks will need them. If you want all tracks to use the new helicopter model, add the two MTS files into your Vehicles\CDB.MAS file

Re: David M's Tracks Corner - spannersf1 - 05-11-2017

Magnificent as always thank you so much for sharing


Re: David M's Tracks Corner - The Pegger - 05-12-2017

The tracks llok great. But a lot of them I get a ctd when trying to load a track, and according to the trace it can't find helicopter.bmp.
For example:
vidman.cpp 1114: CUBE error loading scene file SEASONDATA\CIRCUITS\Australia\2001_Albert_Park\2001_Albert_Park.SCN: Could not locate bitmap file HELICOPTER.BMP
game.cpp 678: Entered Game::Exit()
sound.cpp 768: Entered Sound::Exit()
specialfx.cp 3408: Entered SpecialFX::Exit()
hwinput.cpp 5321: Entered HWInput::Exit()
dynman.cpp 953: Entered DynMan::Exit()
onscreen.cpp 2705: Entered OnScreen::Exit()
vidman.cpp 1457: Entered VidMan::Exit()
osman.cpp 433: Entered OSMan::Exit()

If I make the relevant line in the .scn a comment, then the track loads fine. So far I get this with Montreal, and Albert Park, but I suspect others have the same issue.

You're right mate, sorry. I have that file in my CMAPS.MAS. Since the helicopters have been updated, it needs that BMP. I've added it to the download section above.

Also... I did say "more coming soon", just added Baku to the list! It's V1.0, but has some work to do. Textures have to be fixed here and there and also some buildings are missing faces, so you can see through them. Not sure what happened but it's like that too in the rF version. I'll try to get it directly from F1 2016 and see if it's better, but for now, it's a pretty descent version.


Re: David M's Tracks Corner - dmarques - 05-17-2017

Added modern Silverstone, 2010-2016


RE: David M's Tracks Corner - dmarques - 06-08-2017

Updated the Silverstone package to include the older 1991-2009 layouts. Details above


RE: David M's Tracks Corner - The Pegger - 06-10-2017

One thing I noticed about Bahrain is your 2010 track uses the same layout as the rest of the years. Is it possible to edit it to use the full longer layout like they did that year?

Not really. There isn't a good version of the extended layout and I'm not an AIW expert. Sorry mate

FYI, Baku V2 just released. Fixed the textures and missing faces on all buildings plus many details added. Also, many performance enhancements added. Keep in mind that the track is VERY heavy. Many elements were taken directly from F1 2016.


RE: David M's Tracks Corner - Sudden - 06-21-2017

What an incredible job!! All these tracks are beautiful!! And the new Baku is a piece of art! But despite that, I want to report something about Baku:
Everytime, when someone crashes into the wall (usually when the AI tries to overtake someone), and when they touch the wall (example: first corner, in the start of every single race, they touch the wall (usually the poleman does it, but sometimes he's not the only one), everytime this happens, a VERY HEAVY lag appears in game and it makes impossible to control the car.

Maybe this heavy lag (only when they crash and lose some pieces like a front wing, or a wheel) is caused by the weight of the track?
I have no idea if a fixed AIW would solve this problem, because in an urban track, crashes are normal, they use to happen often and it's good, but that heavy lag in that situations... make almost impossible to control your own car.

Well... I don't know if I'm the only one, or this happens to more people... but it happens to me only in this track.
Thank you for reading this, I hope it may help!! Smile Your tracks (Baku aswell) are beautiful, for sure!!

This happens to me as well. The problem is the AIW is not perfect, causing the cars to crash. In fact, AI has troubles pitting too. I imagine you are using a 2016 mod on this track? The extreme lag is due to the fact the track is already very heavy, plus the scattered pieces of the heavy modern cars make it almost impossible to drive. As I mentioned before, I have no idea how to correct and manipulate AIW. If someone out there is an expert and would like to help, that would be awesome.

FYI, updated Monaco:
-Fixed the background buildings on the Anthony Noghes turn, right after Rascasse
-Added three cruise ships to the harbor
-Added the new yacht club at the exit of the tunnel, as seen since 2014
-Updated the new building at Portier just before the tunnel entrance, as seen since 2009
-Updated the new Race Control building, as seen since 2015
