Title: Tracks Beta 13 *UPDATE*
Post by: tirespin24 on January 04, 2017, 04:13:56 PM
I updated almost every thing on the tracks. Tracks have different terrain textures for wet and dry.

If anybody wants to make any changes to anything, they are more than welcomed! All scene files are in 3DS Max.


I also made a mod and modified the tire file to simulate the slick/tacky transition. Now the transition is from tacky to slick; instead of slick to tacky. The grips are set for dry and wet. I also changed the stagger options.

I added two new tracks to the list: Paragon and Kokomo.

Good deal!  Ran a few laps last night and they work well.  A few things I noticed.

My tire tracks were pretty large, maybe increase height map resolution.
Textures looked over scaled, possibly increase repetitions.
Top surface very slippery, sand?  Gravel?  I have been using (from top down) soft soil, soil, compact soil.

The Heightmap resolution currently is 2049 and, repetitions are currently set at 60; whats do you use?
The current tire compounds are the following:

material_layer0
{
   material = soft soil
}

material_layer1
{
   material = soil
   thickness = 0.014
}

material_layer2
{
   material = compact soil
   thickness = 0.006
}

material_layer3
{
   material = grass
   thickness = 0.03
}

I am not sure why so slick on top layer.
Also what thickness do you use for your layers? I haven't experimented with the track textures or the layer thickness that much as of yet. Also, I really enjoy that street stock
mod and I hope that you put a steering wheel on that baby soon! 

Upon further investigation I figured out that the 1st layer is so slick because its calling up grass material. I think I have an error in my trh. I have tried various changes at this point but nothing is changing the first layer. I am going to look into it more later today.

Yeah she's pretty slick lol. Until you dig through which is not totally inaccurate because a track needs to be worked in (hot laps) 99% of the time if you went out on it and raced with out hot laps the track is one lane and usually pretty slimmy until it blows off. Nice work!

Try removing the grass material layer all together for now (layer 3). The top layer is actually the last one you call. It is kind of confusing at first. If you want to keep the grass physics material you will need to put a mask in so it doesn't cover your track surface.

This is my THT file.

samples_x = 2049
samples_z = 2049

data = heightmap.raw

size_x = 400
size_z = 400
scale = 3.5


num_material_layers = 3

material_layer0
{
   material = compact soil
}

material_layer1
{
   material = soft soil
   thickness = 0.025
}

material_layer2
{
   material = soil
   thickness = 0.012
}

I updated and re-uploaded the tracks. The changes are the following:
Re-scaled the height map
Compound order now properly reads: soft soil, soil, compact soil

Thanks That is exactly what I had to do.

I think it may have been the minute thickness of the top layer leading to leaving such large tire tracks, not the heightmap resolution.  Depending on how large your terrain area is upscaling may end up causing issues.  I'll try to give them a good test soon.

So what's better a high resolution (large height map 2049 or larger)  or a small one 1024
Title: Re: Track Betas: includes deformation
Post by: Torque on January 11, 2017, 02:40:28 AM
It is not really a matter of resolution but scale (meters per pixel). If you have too small of a scale you will experience performance problems. Too large and the deformation will be unrealistic. I believe my current scale is .195m per pixel. That should be a good starting point. I am not sure what is optimal. Maybe the boss man can weigh in?

Sorry about that. Something happened to the links. I re-uploaded them and added Terre Haute and Charlotte.

I added Badlands, Eldora and Las Vegas Dirt Track + inside rally track.The Las Vegas duo are individual tracks but inside the same download/folder.

Post by: JMTRacing on February 02, 2017, 07:53:43 AM
For the rally track shouldn't there be a separate track because the laps won't count and you can't hold races there.
Title: Re: Track Betas: includes deformation

They are separate tracks.Just same link and inside the same folder, but are individual tracks.

I updated the tracks that were post previously and added Bloomington, Dodge City, Eagle, I-55, Lernerville, Silver Dollar, and Williams Grove.
