Quote from: Hawk on May 22, 2019, 05:39:46 pmAny news snippets you can give us on how things are going in the development of the Old Assen track Piboso?

Quote from: Davide74 on May 24, 2019, 07:49:09 pmPiboso exist?

Probably cause of the work involved it would be like Piboso taking on a 5th project and he's realising that he just hasn't got the time spare to do that right now? :-X

I mean people who haven't registered as forum members or not logged in to the forum.  ;)  :)

Quote from: Myst1cPrun3 on May 14, 2019, 08:30:52 amAt the end of the day, for me this is a GP Bikes forum, and if you're not interested in purchasing it then you shouldn't be able to post. Read all the posts by all means but I don't think they should post, hence the license link idea

I totally agree.... Non-members should not be able to post, but linking a license to membership would mean, like DD stated, that potential buyers couldn't ask questions beforehand.
Personally I think stopping non-members from posting and then implementing the "Captcha" procedure on the member registration would stop the vast majority of spam.

I think a lot of spam comes from "Spam-Bots"..... These can be stopped by Piboso implementing the "Captcha" login procedure; maybe it can be implemented just for new member registrations to stop the auto-bots and make it less intrusive for current cosha-members?

Quote from: Hawk on May 06, 2019, 09:07:15 amSame with anything one does in life really, it's a bit like having played tennis right handed all your life and then being asked to only play left handed, it takes a lot of dedication and persistence to pull it off but it can be done as Klax has proved.  :)
The question would be: why would you do that ? Expect for the obvious "I've lost my right hand".
In GPB there's no benefit is playing with DST/DSA on a non-FFB device.
DST in particular makes zero sense on non-FFB devices (and DSA makes marginally more sense).

All I'm saying Max is that anything is possible if one really wants to do it; I agree that FFB would be an advantage but it can be done without it; it's amazing how the mind and senses can adapt with dedicated practice..... I'm sure that if someone had only used DS to control GPB and then tried to switch to using the common standard way of controlling GPB it would feel just as alien to them as standard control users first trying out DS to control GPB. :)

You can use the DS modes, even without FFB,  and ride well with them if you have the determination to persist using DS mode and DS mode alone.....
Most people find it SO alien that they just give-up on it before they start to get used to using it(me included in that. Lol); it can take weeks even months of total dedication to achieve......

Same with anything one does in life really, it's a bit like having played tennis right handed all your life and then being asked to only play left handed, it takes a lot of dedication and persistence to pull it off but it can be done as Klax has proved.  :)

Quote from: Grooveski on April 30, 2019, 02:12:41 pmJaviliyors does scratch builds?

I didn't say that, but my English sucks lol


Quote from: Blackheart on April 18, 2019, 09:10:28 pmDD asked for a mod I think not a new game, using models created from scratch, buyed or ripped is indifferent, no one sells tracks or bikes here. For this I asked what they want precisely.

Anyway it is possible to buy the models (for bikes) from a lot of website with the uv map, and not use the ripped.

For tracks never see someone sell them, instead for tracks conversions you can ask to javiliyors, he is fast and good, but stuff totally from scratch... good luck :)


I can see where the misunderstanding comes in here guys...... With the syntax of the statement above from BH, it could easily be interpreted as BH saying that Javi builds his tracks from scratch(That's what I interpreted it as too when I first read it)..... But I think what BH is actually saying is, that for conversions, Javi is quick and good, but if DD is looking for scratch built tracks then good luck to him on that thought cause there is hardly any that are scratch built.... There is Oliver's Mount from Grooveski and a couple from Janau, but apart from those I cannot think of any others that are genuine scratch built tracks(Please correct me if I'm wrong).  ;)

PS: I must also add that this goes for bikes too..... Vast majority are created from ripped models or ripped model parts.... I only know of h106frp who has created bikeMODS from genuine scratch build.... Again correct me if I'm wrong.

Just be careful DD...... Remember that 99% of the mods in GPB are NOT scratch built models.  :-\  :)

Suggestions and wishlist / Re: .pkz usage
April 18, 2019, 08:00:57 pm
At one time I was constantly asking Piboso to give us the file encryption tool to stop others messing with mods, but I think the backlash from those that don't want it ruled the day..... I will never understand some peoples thinking because if modders are to put in the hours required to produce very good scratch work then they want to know that it's protected.... There's always someone who will come along and think they have a right to alter someones mod work without asking permissions first. :P  :)

Mods / Re: Rossi Ranch Dirt Track Training?

Nice theory/thought but I doubt it simply due to the lack of situational awareness and feel that are missing from GPB.

I recommend you take a look at some tutorials for getting height data into 3D apps....

This should help: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Getting+DEM+height+data+into+3D+applications

Sweeeeeet. Will look into these. Is there a lot of places mapped, as I did find a few sites but they seemed to be NA/Mainland European Mountains etc?


Most of the USA you can get hi-res(Lidar) height data from the USGS site for free.

Unfortunately the governments of Europe and UK prefer to protect the industries that have invested money to provide a paid service to obtain this kind of data, so we don't get the same freedom of information that the USA does with data like this, even though they have accurate lidar data sets that have been paid for by the public.
However, on some of the open data sites, individuals have posted good lidar and satellite data of certain areas of Europe and UK and other parts of the world that can be downloaded for free, so it's not all bad-news.  :)

You can also use Google Earth pro to download height data, but Google offset their data by 2 arc sec(to discourage piracy of their data), so their data is not particularly accurate for representing a real-life topographical 3D model.

Great pics Meyer! Good luck for the season ahead... I'll be watching hopefully.... wish you all the best mate! ;) 8)
