...than it is to go the other way and convert tracks from other sims back into GPL.

Afaik it is not possible to convert a track from GTL/GTR2/rFactor/Project Cars/Assetto Corsa/... to GPL, isn`t it?

You can not convert it but you can take elevation data and camber values and width and all the other kind of measurements if these would come from a laser scan source; you don't need them if they are made out of fantasy :)

Having a laser scan surface, you can measure it and put the data you find into the building of the GPL work.
It does seems strange that you even ask me that; how would you use it? I hope you didn't think there was a button like Rob was saying :P

From what I remember, Jim stated that he is not even working on the track any longer and was doubtful about it being released at all. So what makes everyone so confident that it will be and soon is not clear to me to be honest.
Of course I have nothing against his decision, after all it's his free time and his solo project. He has all the rights in the world to decide whatever he feels more comfortable with. Just don't get your hopes high because he literally said not to.

Anyway, laser scan data would be useless to GPL. Tommie explained briefly to me how track making works in GPL, and if I understood correctly (it is really complicated and that makes me appreciate more all the work done by our track-makers, Jim included obviously) laser scan data would be almost useless.

Actually, that's not what Jim said.  He stated the progress has been slow lately, but he also said later in the same post the he still hoped that we'd be able to drive it someday.

That is good news.  I've never donated to Kickstarter project before, but I think I may do that for this one.

Thank you Saiph.  We've just paddled gently past the 1% mark. Just another 99 steps and we're done.

I can't update the OP anymore, are they locked after a period?  Anyway, further information as and when it's available, will be posted below.
