A True "vintage" Road America?
Posted Nov 03 2015 - 09:11 AM
I'll come right out and say it: the current version of Road America is very lacking in the "atmosphere" department. We're talking what is maybe the greatest road course in the United States.
I don't know much about track editing. I do know a lot about creating graphics and textures.
Is anyone interested in helping me create an authentic Road America circa 1967?
The current version is featureless - it feels like you're out in California. The real Road America is heavily wooded and it had/has the feel of a classic European road circuit (think Brands Hatch or the Osterreichring. It has some truly breathtaking features - signature features. The long run down into Turn 5 should be through a "tunnel" of thick forest. It is a beautiful facility.
I've seen versions created for other sims that do the current version justice. I'd love to see (and help create) a vintage version that does this legendary track justice.
I think the fact that it was a key Can-Am track makes it a great candidate for an overhaul.

So...a HUGE thank you to everyone who has contributed in any way to keeping this sim alive and well!

Nobody had made a new Road America (Elkhart Lake) yet, but you might want to check out Road Atlanta. Not the same, but still a very nice American track . The new Donnybrooke is also very nice.
Road Atlanta is featured in our 1966 Can-Am promotion movie:

The version of Road Atlanta that exists looks a lot like I'd like Road America to look.
I find it interesting that nobody has done a proper version of it, yet. The one that is out there is converted over from ICR2, correct? With some modified graphics?
I look forward to the '66 Can-Am mod...looks like a winner!!

Last year lost the files and now I just rebuilt them.
Are you skilled on graphics?
