Hi guys,

I made a small webpage showing the latest track releases. You can find it here:

Great Tommie!!! Thanks!!!


Edit: I don't remember if the Grammaworx versions of Nurburgring and Monza were in the original track database. At least the "hotlap version" of the Ring is a new track and included in a different folder. Is wider and faster.

I don't know if Monza has some differences in physics to justify to be included in a different folder of if it's "just" an amazing graphical improvement.

Thanks again.

Marcos.

NurbHOT has a new folder name yes but is not a different layout, it shares the same TRK with original papy, same elevations and same widths . What it has is a much better visibility of the margins of the tarmac :)

OK... I was wrong then. Somebody spoke about laptimes of about 6 minutes in that track and I thought it had to be different in layout.

Thanks for the clarification.

Marcos.

Excellent Tommie, many thanks for doing this!  Layout is spot on.

If you don't mind a couple of pedantic points :)

-The quoted lengths are too short, e.g. Tandil should be 20.006 miles, not 20006 metres!
-I noticed the ratings are copied from the old database and don't represent these tracks, maybe fairer to remove them or equalise them?

Thanks again :thumbup:

Hi Phil,

Ah you're right about the lenghts, didn't realize the lenght was set in miles instead of metres. Will fix that soon :) . Same with the ratings, haven't had time to look at them yet, will do so soon :) .

I agree the GPLTD should be updated, but in the meantime here's this page to keep things organised and remove some of the pressure of a GPLTD update :) .

Tommie.

Tommie,

Thank you for all of your hard work since your return back to GPL ! :)
I checked the GPL Links page, but your track database alt. page does not appear to be on it, so a returning GPLer or newbie would not know of the latest Can Am tracks or the others since July 2013, which was the last time the real Track Database was updated. Only by visiting SRMZ it appears would you find these great new tracks. :hiding:

When Spa67 is released, I wonder if it will be as hard to find ? :think:

It looks like the links to Jacksellers tracks at the Track Database never got updated to his new address :)
