Tandragee 100, North West 200, Kells, Enniskillen, Skerries 100, Walderstown, Faugheen, Armoy, Ulster Grand Prix, Killalane. Because they are not ordinary and therefore even tedious tracks.(Google translate)

Leguna would be fitting and you have the base from an old Alpha.

Otherwise a track from the GP calenda would be wise.

Amazing circuit, but it has two problems:
1) it's very short and twisty, not very well suited for GP bikes
2) it never hosted a GP race

Does that not say something about the limitations of GPBikes maybe?

Maybe that is something that needs to be worked on then...

GP bikes in general, not GPB.
Ledenon looks like the first part of the Sachsenring, that many riders complain about.

Sadly, there is also indeed a problem with GPB and turns up and downhill.
But this issue is under investigation and will hopefully be solved sooner than later, so it shouldn't impact the track decision.

In my opinion they destroyed what made the circuit special, to shorten and "normalize" the layout. All purely for monetary reasons  >:(

Both options of course  ;)

Personally the bus stop keeps a flow going but I wouldn't want to alienate the youngsters and to be honest I like them both equally as far as racing opportunities go.

Ledenon:

1) it's very short and twisty, not very well suited for GP bikes
2) it never hosted a GP race

So and what? What is the point to make ONE track from whole GP calendar? What is the point for your modeller to create again the track wich was already modeled tens times before?
Ledenon, just as an example on another hand, being very twisty can be very helpful to train the riders and (the main thing) will help to you to fix the bike`s behaviour on the inclined (sloped?) turns. Ok, i totally agree that its not suited for GP-bikes.
So, how about a third way? Easy recognisable by name, very unique, fast racing tracks, which yet not created in 3d? Everybody will have their own interest with them, i guess :)

So for you the dream track by one of the legendary racing champions is the same as fantasy track by your young neighbour? "Fantasy tracks dont sell games", ok, but couple of tracks which was tens times modeled before -- do? Fantasy tracks, huh... Im sure the creators of TestDrive Unlimited or Crew games criyng, hearing this. (RidgeRacer, TrackMania, first NFSs, CarX and Furidashi didnt listed, ok)

Does that mean current Assen is a no-option? Like I said in a different thread, in my personal opinion, you should not rule out certain options just because of your personal opinion. Let the community decide. If they also majoritarianly dislike new layout, then discard the option. If not then consider it. I personally like the shortened Assen layout very much.

As for tracks in general: I am a bit torn between classic courses like Mugello, Jerez which would be a great fit, but have already quite good mod versions. So the surplus of having the track as an official track would be moderate. Then there are courses like Assen, Misano, Valencia that have not a very good mod version.

My vote would be for Assen (short version or both?), Valencia, Donington or Sepang. Assen, Donington and Sepang would also be great tracks for WRS, Valencia probably not so much because it would be hard to overtake there.

You guy seems to forget that the main reason for official track is now to make sales, we already have almost what we want with mod track so i think Mugello and Laguna Seca will be the most appropriate to be as the "Official" track for GPB ........ surelly not fantasy track .........

Misano: version Javiliyors 10/10
Donington: version Javiliyors 10/10
Laguna:
Jerez: version Javiliyors 10/10
Mugello:

The circuits of Misano, Donington and Jerez are to work for nothing, the Spaniards will make you a bigger void than there is in the visible universe, to play online. I vote for laguna seca or mugello.

Judging from videos, the track surface, trackside objects and textures do look good, but it doesn't seem to use any shader or 3D grass. Also, the normals seem incorrect in many places and transparencies don't seem to be handled properly.

Post by: Hawk on December 04, 2018, 11:33:19 am
I personally think there are other more important issues that need to be worked on in GP-Bikes, but as you will go ahead and do this anyway, I vote for:

Assen Pre-2006.  ;)

Why?: Cause they ruined the original Assen track layout with the current new Assen track layout like they have with so many other classic track layouts in my opinion, and it would be great to have a very good GPBikes version of this classic Assen-TT circuit available.... It's a fast and exciting track to ride - all the riders and fans loved it!  ;D 8)

Oh, really? I always thought the Unique Selling Proposition sales anything (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unique_selling_proposition). Which real circuit will be this "proposition"? Are you sure its important for players here to have official Mugello or LagunaSeca? Instead of Misano, why? Keep in mind, that current vote is for players, who already plays GPB. So they choosed GPB not because of tracks, obviously.
How many of you didnt played the Ride 1-2-3 because it didnt had your favourite track?
Anyway, next track will not be really official too, so what is the difference between developer`s non official and community`s non official versions?
And how do you think, which advert sounds better: "we have a few circuits, which looks similar to real" or "we recreated the dream of one of the legendary racing champions"?
If Piboso actually wants more quality content, so may be its better concentrate to write a complex check list for modders? About pixel density, normals and smoothing groups, welded vertices, packaging the UVs, avoiding Z-fighting and so like?

I worry for old versions. How much of the community or indeed the future target audience remember them or even care for them?

It's like the bikes, only 'bikers' who appreciate all motorcycles old and new are interested in the classic stuff.

My feeling is most people are the modern motogp audience not really bikers tbh. 

At least your track setup allows alternate versions so why not broaden the audience interest in making all the versions as alternate options. More work of course but a much wider audience and definitely more gain than pain?

Some are pretty much unrecognisabl now of course

The main difference of official and mod track is that official track is installed directly with gpbikes, so one didn't need to scrool for forum, download stuff, learn how to install mod before beeing able to ride in such a classic moto gp track as Mugello and trust me, this thing is really important to new player for "first impression" off course if one buy a moto gp simulator, he will ask first for the official moto gp track/bike first ........ i think it's that simple ........

There are two problems:
1) the development team is tiny, so it's not possible to replicate the latest season
2) even if the latest season is replicated, it would quickly become obsolete, because there is no yearly version of GPB

I didn't mean to degrade your work on Misano.
Only pointing out that there is room for improvement.

I agree that making another Jerez and Donington ( that would be the third! ) version is probably not a good idea.

Jarama is an amazing circuit! Too bad it hasn't been used in a world championship race in decades  :(

Jerez:

  • GP track since 1987

  • The layout never changed (?)

I personally would like to see some smaller club tracks integrated, as many of the large GP tracks already made to a high quality by modders, and I've turned many laps in most of the large tracks in many many sims throughout the years. I'm obviously biased with British tracks and road racing tracks, (As I'm British duh), but if I had to choose, I'd say something like Billown, Cadwell, or even something smaller like Darley. But for international tracks I'd have to say something like Barber Motorsports Park in US, Loudon or Sebring in Florida.

God theres so many to choose :/
But to narrow it down a top 3:
1: Darley Moor
2: Cadwell Park
3: Barber Motorsports Park

Also, is there going to be support for hill climbs or point to points in the near future, as I think it'd be cool to be able to do something like the Course de Côte Villers sous Chalamont in france or Pikes Peak in Colorado.

probably not, but it'd be a great baseline test to work on suspension and tyre moddeling/physics  :)

Converted a few different tracks for testing with CAWS that proved unrideable (in an enjoyable or useful way) at the moment.
Basically fast changes of direction, hard braking, crests and inclines are all a bit of a disaster at the moment so nicely flowing circuits are probably the best bet, probably why the more 'classic' tracks are proving poular choices.

In hindsight, this is perhaps best left to Modders, as if official content seems buggy it can be a little un-proffessional and off-putting. But at the same time modders tend to shy away from these tracks as they don't work well. So its seems a cycle, and someone breaking that cycle to push the physics into a really buggy mess may be whats needed to give a little boost to GPB, and if it is official content then it would require attention from Piboso him/herself, (<-do we actually know at this point), thus again boosting development of GPB

In regards to the smooth and flowing tracks I'd personally like to see Thruxton if Cadwell isn't an option, as that's pretty much flat and extremely flowing, but has good racing too.


PS: Before I offend anyone its my opinion and yours may vary  ;D

Firstly. Modders have never shy'd away from creating anything as far as I am aware.  ;)

The modders have done exactly what you've suggested and a lot more over the years - have you looked inside the track and bike databases at all the tracks, bikes, helmets and paints provided by community modders? Believe me, many past and current bugs have been found because of the modders work and community together over the years..... Some bugs are still awaiting a fix and Piboso has said they are currently under investigation. ;)

Hope I've not misunderstood your point of view and also hope these facts have updated your "opinion" to the current status..... No offence taken.  ;) 8)

No you're right in terms of whats available (Didn't intend to belittle modders if thats what it looked like sorry), and there are mods out there for pretty much anything. My theory is that if its official content any issues would be flagged and (hopefully) fixed quickly, as official content being buggy isn't ideal in 2018.

As for cadwell, the only version I can find is quite an old version, which is out of date and has a tonne of bugs in it, so an official version would have hopefully ironed those out. If you know of a newer version a link would be much appreciated.

Thruxton isn't in the game at all to my knowledge and would be a great track to ride in GPB imo, which is why either that or Cadwell, or another smaller track would be great, but again IDK if this would be better for modders to embark on, as small tracks that aren't international don't have the same appeal to the larger audience than the big GP tracks. I have had several goes myself at making a track, but quite frankly I couldn't achieve the quality I was looking for, in RTB, BTB, 3DS Max or anything else really.

Indeed.... I understand what your saying there mate, and I agree that Thruxton would be a great addition to GPBikes; I love the British club tracks myself.  ;D 8)

The only tracks I could recommend to you on that basis would be "Croft"(There are smooth and bumpy versions available, bumpy being the more realistic version denoted by the "b" in the filename), "Castle Comb" and "Goodwood" are also there in the track database for download that I would recommend for British Club racing type circuits in GPB. We had many great event races on these tracks especially on the Moto3 bikes.  ;D

Victoria is far better. Official (also with a different name) and not" ripped\conversion" in GPB will be just a plus, and imo the best choice to sell some more copies. (I mean on Steam).

Title: Re: New official track
Post by: Myst1cPrun3 on December 08, 2018, 07:59:22 pm
For me a track that isn't already in the game would be awesome, maybe even a classic track. Mugello is a great mod and for me doesn't need a rework, as it seems to work near perfectly as is. As for the kerbs, with exception to the pit exit, and last corner, I don't see the real world riders using them unless they've messed up. And the pit exit and last corner in GPB are perfectly rideable. Its a similar story for me with Brno. Sure the current GPB version is based off an older version of the track, and some textures are possibly a little blurry here and there, but again its not bad enough to warrant a complete rework imo,  a capable modder, (not me as I'm completely inept lol) wouldn't have much issue adding some HD textures and possible updates. Hell I don't even like Brno its a dull af track IMO, and I've done hundreds of laps, maybe thousands across various Sims and games, GPB inc.

I personally would like to see a track that isn't in GPB at all, as some completely fresh content would give people some cool things to play with, rather than just another version of something that already exists, especially as the content that could possibly be replaced is better and less glitchy than most milestone games ATM XD

If the situation is the same as it is with Victoria then the track won't be licensed anyway, which means that having a big GP circuit may be irrelevant if the name isn't immediately obvious, which to me is another reason for not having Mugello or Brno, as perspective buyers may not even realize what track it is, thus defeating the object of having said track.

Some more obscure circuits for me would be more fun, and possibly more beneficial to GPB (I'm not a businessman so I couldn't honestly give a prediction), something that would have to be learned fresh, and is potentially challenging. I already mentioned Thruxton and some smaller tracks, but alternatively the Salzburgring could be fun to use, and could also be a period track for the GP500, and other classic bikes.

http://www.racingcircuits.info/a-to-z-circuit-list.html

http://www.the-fastlane.co.uk/racingcircuits/

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_motor_racing_tracks

These are just a few of the tracks in the world, and I would think there to be a few hidden gems in there, rather than defaulting to the purpose built "Tilke-dromes" that most Grand Prix events use.

@Piboso: +1 Totally agree with you.  ;)


@BH - In answer to your statements:
1. Do you seriously believe that just one or two "Official Tracks" is going to convince someone to buy GPBikes? I don't think so, you'd need a whole seasons pack of "Officially" Licensed tracks and bikes to make any impression on that subject.

2. Victoria better? Personally I wouldn't say so.... At best on par maybe at a push?

3. We may have all the tracks in the poll in the database already, but many desperately need renewing up to a good decent standard.

Totally agree with your points Hawk, having un-licensed replicas of tracks that are licensed elsewhere won't bring people to GPB, which is why I'm suggesting something that isn't seen in another (or many) sims, something different to make it interesting.

GPB must also stay true to its vision and scope, though.

Modders are, of course, free to do whatever they like, but at the core GPB is a simulator about relatively modern GP motorcycles. Therefore, the stock tracks should be circuits that hosted the GP championship in recent years.

I wouldn't be so sure about that Pib?
If you think about it, the "Classic" genre might just be what GPBikes needs to widen it's appeal? Is there any other bike racing game that caters for the true classic bikes and tracks as well as the modern genre of MotoGP? There could be a little extra niche opening there that GPBikes could appeal to?
Plus as a wild guess I would say that the more "hard-core simulations" appeal more to the older age groups than the younger "gamer" type groups.... the older generation tend to be drawn more to the classic eras as well as the modern?  :)

TBF, I don't know what the initial Idea was behind GPB, or what vision there was for its development path, but it just feels like there have always been games (Of varying Realism) surrounding Grand Prix Racing, and doing something different maybe just whats needed to spice up things in the market. Tourist trophy was a great game back int' day, as that focused more on racing and not GP's, and I get the impression that's one reason as to why that makes the Ride series so popular now, as its something fresh and different.

I mean if your set on going for Grand Prix tracks there are so many again that are not seen in many games/sims that could be fun to ride, like the Salzburgring, or Rijeka (Automotodrom Grobnik), or even the Brazilian track which I seriously enjoyed back in MotoGP 4, it was called Jacarepaguá or nelson Pique Circuit. Sadly it was torn up for the Olympics, but it was an awesomely fun track to ride in that game, that perhaps isn't what is associated with 'fun' motorcycle riding as it maybe isn't as flowing as most. (But then again I did a track day at donnington and thought the Melbourne Loop was the most fun part over the rest of the track so maybe I'm Just weird).

I guess the point I'm trying to make is that there are so many circuits out there that haven't been seen often before, in both GP's, WSBK, or at club level, that could really be fun additions to GPB. GPB is so different from pretty much all bike games out there in the fact that its a sim, and the potential of not licensing tracks means that there could be pretty much any track done to a high quality, so to me it seems a shame to do something that is already out there. Both in and out of the GPB world.

Title: Re: New official track
Post by: Myst1cPrun3 on December 08, 2018, 09:16:50 pm
Spa isn't a bad Idea, and is quite different to modern GP tracks, but I'm possibly a bit biased, as again its a fairly common track in most racing games these days, and one which I've done a load of laps in, and I'm not sure how GPB physics handle Eau Rouge/Radallion either.
If it was put in however, I'd like to see a period version as well as or instead of the modern version, so like late 80's early 90's, lined with catch fences and hay bales, and again could be a great track for the GP500s, which could do with some love as they don't seem too popular these days sadly. (I could see the track also suiting the GP250s as well if its not too long)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_cLV0czIQxA

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9SJCE7XuFc

Lined with armco and hay bales ^^   :D

EDIT: Based of these videos Old Spa would be very cool, but I'd like to see the in game grip of the wet tyres reduced, certainly across the older GP500 class, and maybe remove the lean limit when your on the brakes, as I seem to do backwards braking, where I'm light on the entry and heavy when I'm leaned toward the Apex, its sort of backwards. And if there is a way to increase wet weather spray that would be cool too.

After some thought and considering the effort required to build tracks;

Assuming people do not really care where the content comes from as long as it looks and plays well would it not be better to use the effort to improve the engine?

Just my (personal) list of priorities;
Lighting model; its difficult to make tracks look better without better lighting, HDR and dynamic shadows would greatly improve the look with the possibility of time of day lighting.
Fix the outstanding issues with transparency - trees and track overlays.
Fix the 3D grass issues (pop up and floating grass)

I agree completely. Especially if its something that's already in the game, (through Mods Admittedly), such as Mugello and Brno. If it was a completely new track that hasn't had a version of it previously modded then for me it would be more justified.

I personally would like to see a day - night cycle, toggle-able headlights, and refueling/tyre changes for some endurance racing, as some real night racing would be awesome, especially for those with the VR privilege, (not me as I'm poor LOL). Time trial rules and hill climb support wouldn't go amiss either, but at the end of the day that all depends on how far Piboso wants to come away from the GP racing side of things, (would be nice for the engine to support this however even if there is no official content for it). Night racing and multiple light sources would be cool for simulating Losail however.

So i totally miss the point of this thread, it seems that everybody is just telling what's his favorite track ! i thought that this thread was created to add "some" official track to the GPB cores, so one who will buy the game (new customers) will be ready to play on 3 official track without being forced to dig into the mod installation/download nightmare ..... and then make a better first impression
to GPbikes, it has nothing to do with wich track is good or not, it is a Marketing thing ......... so What's wrong with the current Mugello track ? then it's a ripped version from Assetto Corsa ..... just that simple......

Well I'll say yet again here to people with this opinion: Do you really think that one, two, even three official GPBikes tracks will make any difference to more sales compared to all the mod-tracks available? I personally don't think so. You'd need a whole season of official tracks to make that difference your talking about, and that is a heck of a lot of work.

As for installing mods being a nightmare - I can see your point with the mod-bikes due to the addition of the separate tyre files which newbies tend to get confused about, but the track-mods couldn't be simpler to install? ie: Download a track and drop it into a "tracks" folder created inside the gpbikes folder; nightmare? Do you seriously think so?  ??? :)
When was the last time you saw any posts about anyone having trouble actually installing(not downloading) tracks? I can only think of one in the last few years and that was from a newbie how was completely new to using a PC and didn't know about even the basics of operating a PC.

We were asked which ones we'd like to see in the sim, as for the reasoning nothing was confirmed to my knowledge so its just a debate as to what people would like to see in the game officially. The likelihood the tracks are licensed is slim to none anyway so if Mugello was put in the game it would have to be renamed so a prospective buyer may not look into a purchase anyway, negating the point of something that's already available to a high quality in mods anyway. That's my take on it anyway.

And installing Mods is literally just copying and pasting the right files into the right folders, not what I'd call a nightmare, and most championships post links to the versions they use in their topic. Workshop support on steam launch would be a nice addition saying that, but its nowhere near a nightmare.

My first impression with gpbikes :

I'm a geek, wich love to hack things, i'm doing 3D modeling and compositing as my job, i'm making DIY simracing accessories etc .... that to say you that i'm not really a guy who is afraid of installing mod but :

i've discovered Gpbikes through youtube, just by searching moto gp simulation for PC (cause i played milestone moto GP 14 on Play Station 3). I'vre tryied the demo and i literraly fall in love, then i see that the demo only offer 1 bike and 1 track. So i immediatly buy the full liscence and big was my surprise when i realised that i only had 2 more bike in return of my 29 Bucks. Then i start searching the internet if there is mod for gpbikes etc ... found this forum / found the thread / download thing ..... It takes me aprox 2 to 3 day before i was able to play ..... and the first track i was serching was mugello, i don't know why ......

80% of normal people would just let it down and ask for refund if gpbikes was released on steam .........
Title: Re: New official track
Post by: Myst1cPrun3 on December 10, 2018, 11:45:33 am
Over 80% of people do research and know what they're buying before splashing out 29€

I know before I bought it I had watched over 10 reviews on GPB, and spent a good few hours on this forum before buying the sim, as I'm a bit of a cautious person when it comes to buying things on the internet, especially from a relatively unknown site.

As a result I knew exactly what I was buying, and what I was getting for my money, and how to improve upon that, and I bought it based upon that. Not a presumption that it'd be full of 20+ tracks and  bikes etc

I don't mean to disregard your experience, but out of all the posts I've read, (and I've read a load more than I've posted)
so far it's only you that seems to have these issues/views
Sure there are improvements and streamlining to be made in terms of modding, but they completely change the game.

TLDR: Do your research before buying something off the internet

janaucarre : not really, with the Gpbikes case, the demo will be indispensable to really test the physic engine (wich need more time than 2hour to really understand) , when the steam refund is to be sure that the content you have worth the full game price ...... that's why i sayd 80% of people will refund it with only 3 bikes and 1 track .... i think that was already the case when Piboso lauched KRP on steam .........
Title: Re: New official track
Post by: Myst1cPrun3 on December 10, 2018, 12:26:58 pm
Again +80% of people will do their research before they buy it, reviews are there for a reason. (Which KRP has mostly positive despite the things your saying, so really this highlights that it's kind of the there way around to what your saying) As KRP has mostly positive reviews, (Even with the content) I would hazard a guess that it's 20%, maybe less who'd refund it because of the reasons your suggesting.
Title: Re: New official track
Post by: Myst1cPrun3 on December 10, 2018, 12:29:37 pm
And even then most of the negative reviews are because of crashes, not because of content, so again your point is kind of not accurate. And buying a game for 2 hours and then refunding it is kind of a s****y thing to do imo, as it's messing with people's livelihoods, which isn't really a good thing to do especially for a small dev.

I've refunded about 4 games on my account all together, and that's only because they don't work, and/or aren't being developed anymore to make them work

EDIT: At the end of the day, the original question was which track do we want to see in GPB, not which one do you think will make GPB more marketable, or which one will do better on Steam, and if your desired track does that then great.
Any more official content is good for GPB in my book, especially if it's done to a high, well raceable quality. Whichever tracks Pib chooses will be beneficial to the sim and great fun to use

Lol! Good to hear it Bob!  ;D ;D

About the track type suggestion you made: As we already have an official track used by current MotoGP bikes then that surely leaves only the one choice from the list of options in the poll -  Assen pre-2006?  ;D
The old classic Assen TT circuit is the only track in the poll list we haven't already got a decent to good version of from the track-mod database and for me personally speaking would by far be the best choice rather than recreating what we already have access to?  :)

Trans-Atlantic tracks? Just off the top of my head(please correct me if I'm mistaken), I think we already have decent to good versions of them all now? :)
Title: Re: New official track
Post by: Myst1cPrun3 on December 11, 2018, 02:58:37 pm
The current-old version of Assen, (that's a confusing one) that I have installed seems to be a decent quality, although it could do with some updating in terms of kerbing and some textures, but overall seems a good little mod, I would say comparable in quality to the Victoria track. (Not the worst by any stretch)

However it would also open the door to having multiple layouts of it, such as the modern version, the pre '06 layout, and if Pibosos feeling brave, the Old OLD layout, which would be cool for the Norton Manx and 'Legends' Riders imo. They're in the sim so why not use them for me anyway.

I have a vid on the current-old version of Assen up on my yt, it's certainly not the 'worst' quality mod out there imo

That is definitely the version I personally was talking about from the track database that badly needs replacing: It's flat track surface with 1990's model topology(no real details/shape), textures are pretty awful and the track scale/height map and track camber angles are very inaccurate together with inaccurate kerbing. Plus the trees are missing together with other circuit peripheral objects and landscaping.
Basically it is a very very basic representation of the real classic Assen TT circuit and really does need replacing with a good version built from scratch. :)

PS: Like the vid mate... I've not seen that track for a good while; we used to ride it regular in GPbike race events/championships.  ;) 8)
Title: Re: New official track
Post by: Myst1cPrun3 on December 11, 2018, 03:29:32 pm
I can't really say how accurate or inaccurate it is compared to the real world version, as I have never ridden it, and was only 8ish when it was changed. There are definitely worse tracks available and it is quite rideable with a decent flow, if it is in need of a texture/bump map/3d update. As for this update, I've only tried a handful of things with track modding and was catastrophically unsuccessful, so I can't say if it's worth updating or would be less work to start from scratch? I'll leave that decision to the people that know what they're doing lol. But it's definitely rideable, and there are very few bugs that I've found, so it's been well tested at least.

EDIT: What I will say is that I've been playing MotoGP 4 on PCSX2 a load recently, and I've just done the Assen round of career mode there, and that version seems much more 'lived in' shall we say, and with a texture boost of x8 in the PCSX settings it looks startlingly good, and not like a 13-14 ish year old ps2 game. Again I can't vouch for accuracy, but would it be possible to rip that version and import it over, just as a stop gap until its either remade or updated. As far as I can find the MGP 4 game is abandon ware as of now, (don't quote me on that tho, ans I'm not 100% sure), so it shouldn't be so much of an issue providing it can be done? Or even rip the older version from a milestone game, believe it was in VRTG the game?

Worth doing another mod version of the classic Assen TT Circuit? I guess it depends on whether Piboso decides to actually do the Assen track and also how long before he can complete it?  :)

I think this is the version Piboso is talking about with the pre 2006 layout...... Anyone notice the very young looking Pedrosa in the pits near the beginning? Lol  ;D
https://www.youtube.com/v/eMUiClqXeJs



Personally I'd rather Piboso do this version which I beleive is still the original layout which was slightly longer than even the pre 2006 version.
https://www.youtube.com/v/omk5sHY2xwI

But you can really see the track corner cambers on these old layouts..... Much more track camber than on the latest modern Assen track corners.  ;)

Title: Re: New official track
Post by: Myst1cPrun3 on December 11, 2018, 06:11:08 pm
Aside from the externals, such as kerbing and advertising I personally can't notice much difference, except it looks like in the 2002 layout the 'Strubben' hairpin, as well as the back straight has had some adjustments and re profiling, namely the kinks being sharpened, and one being added towards the end of the Veenslang/Ruskenhoek section it looks like. I personally prefer the 2002 layout, as that style of Assen, such as the one in MotoGP 4 is where I started watching MotoGP so its what I remember. I do think the 500s need some love in GPB however, so the older version would make more sense to me to add in, and isn't really different enough to warrant 2 versions, unless one is modded in should Piboso decide to develop a version. It also seems like the kinks in the first part are tightened as well especially in this vid, although this being the '05 layout it sort of looks like its in between the old and new version, as its mid development I should imagine at this point:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9IxPEZIWPY

I personally would love to see the REALLY old version (which is the first pic I've attached), before they shortened it into the pre 2006 version, for the Norton's which don't seem to get used enough IMO.

The second pic appears to be a map that shows how the track changed between 2002, which is vid you shared and 2006 which was the last version before it was shortened, and I find it quite interesting to see just how many changes there were in the time, as I never considered the re-modeling a transitional phase, I just assumed they did it all in one go, which would show that if Assen was introduced as an official track then Piboso would have to be quite picky with the year, as the 2002 variant differed from the 2005 variant quite a lot in the last couple of sectors, and the kerbing/runoffs are very different also.

Cambered turns are something else that needs fixing, currently the bike will tend towards a lowside as if the camber is being added to the the lean angle.  :(

TBF, shell oil hairpin at Oulton Park doesn't seem to bad for the low siding thing, it just seems very understeery compared to the real world, although that may be me not doing it right. The issue seems to arise when the camber ends, and the tracks go relatively flat, the front just washes along the floor, at that weird point between a wheelie and losing the front. Then it goes down. That's just my experience, I can't think of another track aside from Daytona that has banking that's noticeable in GPB?

Yes, it's as if the bike/tyre lean angle is being calculated from a set flat surface(zero to nn deg lean) at each cycle instead of first calculating the track surface angle first? I'm probably wrong but it's just a thought.  :)

@Myst1cPrun3: Yes indeed there were so many changes during those times but I agree too that I'd also like to see the original layout modelled by Piboso as the official track cause the original layout for the Assen TT circuit was probably the best road racing circuit in the world until they started to mess around with it..... Same happened to Silverstone too..... Bloody do-gooders and their supposed safety alterations.  >:(

My 2c: it has to be a modern track, something MotoGP or WSBK race on frequently.

Local / club / obscure tracks = big no no (no matter how nice they are).
Oldies = big no no. People tend to live in the present. There are exceptions but well, they are exceptions.

Brno, Mugello and even Portimao look reasonable to me.

They also removed very nice Lagunca Seca. That was 10 years ago :P There was also a Yamaha M1 to choose and also has gone in next betas.

I think as the track should be a major MotoGP track not a tight twisty track that newcomers will have a problem with, hell even I do with Cadwell lol. But jokes aside it should be a track well know world wide and not a track to hard to learn as it would put people off. You must remember it is hard enough for many to learn to ride and then add a hard track it could be a ales killer.

Thank you to everyone who voted and commented.

In the end, it was decided to create the old Assen and then to try to bring back the old US track.

There already are good Mugello and Jerez version that it would be difficult to improve upon. Also it would probably be disrespectful to ignore what the community already did.

Sorry but so bored of Victoria and it will not attract people to buy a licence if they have watched development and seen you have no other option, many people are to shy and respectful to say so, but the reality is you need to do something new.

You have so much talent but you hold your protential back

There are some of the best modders here, the most willing and passionate riders you could ever meet, there are people that live for GB Bikes because it gives them a feeling they are riding.

Basically if all you offer over years is one track, those watching will think thats all you can do. I think you need to show you can do more than that.

If I remeber right at one time you had Monteray and Lme rock > I think it was beta 7 THAT made me buy a licence and Im a fusssy guy!!!

2 tracks will give move sales...........one gets boring........demo needs both tracks before they pay to get mods


Just a few ideas..................Without PIBOSO I would have never started back on an idea for a bike controller for PC bike games, so GPBikes is personal to me, Just trying to say its the ONLY sim but needs the original content amount.

Thank you for your inceadable talent. you persistence and determination, you are a person l have the upmost respect for.............You GIVE people a chance to do something they cant normaly get  Sorry to kinda get off track but thing is you need a fresh look to GPB and the track/S is important.

I'm not one to be pushy, buuut why not both? Laguna is in most racing games ,and even ride 3 has picked it up this year, but lime rock is only in a few titles, and is quite a fun track too. Based of pbs comments about it being a mainly go title I doubt lime rock would make it but the more the merrier imo, providing they're up to quality that is 😀

To my knowledge We're getting a new old Assen, (cos that's not confusing at all)
And some tracks that were taken out of the game will hopefully be reintroduced and updated

New tracks seem to lack character, older tracks tend to be more fun, however with it being based on relatively modern gp racing options are limited for official content I should Imagine, but I would like to see tracks that aren't in other games too, which is where the modders come in Into it for me, and why I'm not a big fan of GP tracks being modded, rather play something like croft or castle Combe.

So, just to confirm part of your clients is made of old schmucks with a bit of motorcycle culture, I'd like old Suzuka and its variants as well as Charade :P But to be honest, as a license holder, do I really care about official circuits ? I enjoy older tracks and bikes a lot, and they can't be found elsewhere, that's the second strength of the game after the physics engine.

What I care about is having more players and populated servers (are there official ones ?). I think what we need is attractive circuits where newbies can be reasonably competitive and have fun on (same goes for bikes), and Brno would probably be good at that, as Victoria is.

Also, a basic controller layout for twin stick types would greatly help, as most people don't have other hardware to play with. I'm quite satisfied with mine, but I think most newcomers would get lost trying to find it.

For information, turning and forward/backward position on left stick, clutch on left trigger, downshift on L3, leaning L/R on LB/RB (but to be honest, I don't use that as much as I should), throttle with Down of right stick, rear brake with Right of right stick, upshift with R3, pushing the bike with X/A, reset with B, changing view with Y, looking around with the Up/Down/Left/Right hat.

So what is it your actually saying and want, Takuan_Soho? Realistic Classic/modern, or arcade milestone type bikes with power-ups and gamey features like unlocking suits, helmets, boosts, etc, etc?

But starting your post off with calling the more knowledgeable people in the community here who have contributed probably more than any other people on this site, "Old Smucks", is not a good way to try and convince others to agree with or help you push for what you want. ::)

The more original content Piboso can offer with a license is seen as a plus for new customers as well as being able to have mods. Its about making a larger community too as more buy a license.
