I discovered this jewel of a track last night. What an amazing,mostly 4bit texture marvel King Raceway is. So far it is the most highly detailed fantasy track I've seen. Great frame rate,good a-i.......however, it is like the track authors lost interest and just released it without quite finishing the job. The sky/horizon and a couple of treemips seem completely out of character with what IMO is an almost masterpiece.

Scott's horizon seems to suit the medieval nature of the locale,maybe somewhere in the s.e. of France. FWIW,I'm crossing the T's and dotting the I's with this minor tweaking. Any good horizon and replacing a couple of tree mips by any anyone else would put the finishing touches on this beauty as well. Try it yourself and see what suits you best. I wouldn't tamper with any other part or parts of the track. AFAIC,this is a keeper and a great drive as it's staying in my track folder.

Thx Kenny !!

BTW, this track is a real beauty, I installed it a long time ago, drove a few laps ...and forgot it. What a shame! I'll have to spend some time next weekend for a race there, I think the 66mod suits best ....

Cheers

A little update for this jewel, as said kenny almost ten years ago...
For those who prefer the Scottie's sky proposed by Kenny, I added a high res version.

Have fun ! :drive:
