New Track 1 - Cascavel
Posted Dec 09 2020 - 01:02 PM
I don't know about track environments but I would advise to use one of Scottie's generic horizon files - from http://gplr.srmz.net...p?showtopic=155

I have put the track on the GPLTD:
Cascavel 1974 Brazilian Grand Prix
Please correct me if I have made a wrong entry in the database.
And here is a screenshot to give you all a little insight into the GPL Track Database.
The database is programmed and hosted by Bill Cooper.

I think the horizon is the real for that track, which is great, considering the difficult that is (at least for me) to do a real horizon file. It seems that only the sky.mip, that must "combine" with all horizon files doesn't fit well. But is much easier to say it than to correct it, hehe.

Sorry, my bad. I have fixed Cascavel and Interlagos 1971 to Brazil. Now it is only possible to search for the country Brazil.
Btw: In the 67season.ini the country flag has a wrong entry: flag=britflg

I added a ceiling poly to horiz.3do and a matching sky.mip, and corrected the track length in track.ini (it has to be in miles, so 1.892m)

Thanks again Jonny (and Ginetto and all involved). Thanks to Phil for the update, I didn't see artefacts tho with triple screen FOV.

Thx Phil. The GPLTD now also has the track length corrected and the SRMZ button is linked to your update.

This is one of those circuits where the track map looks fairly simple, but when you actually start to drive around it, it's quite a challenge to get the perfect lap. Slight elevation changes which hide the track ahead. The radius of the corners varies, so some turns are pretty tight while others can be taken quickly if you get the line right. And the texture colours and trees really make you feel that you're in South America. Great work!

Thanks again to the authors!
Thanks also to Marcos for the silky demo lap
