Air can you look in to livery's?  ...

This model has no skins attached to it.  It appears to be colored through the 3D model textures and maybe some swatches to color areas of the car (e.g. body, interior).

I can probably export a skin for the car from CM, but I don't know if I can attach one that doesn't normally have one.  I will look to see if CM does that, but no guarantee.

OK, I am getting somewhere.  I think I can do it.  I had to unpack the car to get the skin files, and putting that in the appropriate skins folder added the texture, but left a base color.  Changing the color in CM to white effectively cleared the texture.   Quick test:

Getting somewhere, not sure if I can get it to stick, maybe just start with the white livery?:

Brad, what is your number?

Anyone else have any number / color preferences?   (Brad is Green)

So are we starting the series next week?  And do we have a firm track order for the series?

This is the actual track list/order, but we don't have versions of the ovals and I am not sure if we want to run Putman(?).  7 races seem like a good number, but 5 (or 4) is a bit too short.  The question is, should we sub in some semi-appropriate tracks from the same (sort of close) area (e.g. Mid-Ohio, Road America?), or should we repeat the ones currently on the list (probably more useful for Brad).  I suspect we could find an oval is we want, but would it be good practice, or just silly?

  1. (Nashville Roval)
  2. Carolina Motorsports Park
  3. (Lanier oval)
  4. Barber's Motorsports Park
  5. Hallett
  6. Heartland (Topeka)
  7. Putnam?

We could do something like this:

  • 1-Carolina Motorsports Park
  • 2-Barber's Motorsports Park
  • 3-Hallett
  • 4-Heartland (Topeka)
  • 5-Carolina Motorsports Park
  • 6-Barber's Motorsports Park
  • 7-Hallett
  • 8-Heartland (Topeka)

Or this:

  1. Mid Ohio?
  2. Carolina Motorsports Park
  3. ?
  4. Barber's Motorsports Park
  5. Hallett
  6. Heartland (Topeka)
  7. Road America?

I'm fine with a couple swaps to make it fun. Can we do AMP and Mid-Ohio?

We will do one drop again (two drops would be a lot of fiddling).

What track is AMP?

Maybe a game of tag?  Add in some drinking game rules... the possibilities are endless.

In TDT we did a race with KERS and that is silly fun.  I need to add that to another variant of the mini.

I'm out for a bit, still trying to get my foot/ankle to heal. Doc says it will probably be 2-4 weeks before things actually get better, I'm hoping for the earlier side. I may try some one footed sim racing if I start to get too restless, but am going to try to rest for now.

Been messing with the track builder and it is an interesting bit of software.  Not intuitive at all and using the Google maps data is even less so.  The up side is there are a couple of videos on YouTube that are very helpful.  
 

I am trying to model the road course at NHIS where I learned to race. The rabbit hole of track building is huge.

Track List is updated (with subs).  Atlanta Motorsports Park (looks like a fun and reasonably well done track) is on the drive.

Season 2: One Lap of America (aka It's a Brad's Life)

  1. Mid Ohio (sub for Nashville)
  2. Carolina Motorsports Park
  3. Atlanta Motorsports Park (sub for Lanier)
  4. Barber's Motorsports Park
  5. Hallett
  6. Heartland (Topeka)
  7. Road America (sub for Putman)

*Track substitutions are used for tracks that are either not available 

 

Is this is the current Drivers list?

  • MMM_Sauce (assuming)
  • dean1484
  • ProDarwin
  • Racebrick (old Trevor?)
  • Allaircooled
  • GameboyRMH
  • Brad
  • slowbird (maybe?)

Going through the tracks, looks like we are missing Hallet also.  There are no free versions out there that I can find.

So, we might need another sub.

In reply to aircooled :

Hallett is on the drive, we ran it last Wednesday.

Also, I have the Nashville road course oval. It could be fun to run with a group even if it isn't the most interesting track to drive.

OK, I see it.  It's EKO Hallet.

Yeah, I don't have an issue with a Roval.  It's one of the real tracks, so we should do it.  Worst case, if it's silly, we run a quick race and play with another track the rest of the night. We should probably test it out at least.

If we add in Nashville, we should probably drop RA.  That's kind of a big boy car track anyway cheeky

I can also prep a "marketing" post for the main page when we are ready to go.  I don't know if it will pull anyone in, but it is worth a try.
