Still no walk with GPS ont the track path?
I'll start to create objects to dress the track and wanted to be sure the elevations aren't too off. :rolleyes:

There is a 1964 episode of the TV series "The Fugitive" that has some footage of Paramount Ranch.  Four YouTube clips, but I think the best footage is towards the end of part 4.
Home is the Hunted Part 4


Cheers,
steve

Oops, it's part 3 with the footage Pt 3

They are driving in the opposite direction in the Fugitive all the time, right?

Looks like Hollywood took some liberties with course direction to me too, Ginetto.

Keith, you only get the road to the house if you're a fugitive.  :D

I certainly hope this Paramount Ranch Raceway track is still 'under construction'.  The beta that Ginetto provided a long while ago is a real "hoot" to drive in the Sports Cars!!!

It is :rolleyes:
GPL time is tricky though, it waves up and down and for Paramount was a long down.
You can access my forum right? :wave:

I'm surprised no one mentioned the movie "Munster Go Home" filmed there.

I was wondering if anyone has ever modeled it or thought about modeling it.

been done, loong ago by Brent Adams, creator of LimeRock Park ... Brent used to maintain a website about Paramount Ranch, with lots of info and pictures ... it was back around 2002-3, iirc, about the same time or shortly after he released LRP ... I don't have the track anymore, after several hd crashes and different computers, but it was a very good track ... Brent called it a beta and wasn't finished with it, but it was certainly as good as many finished tracks ... from the top of the hill near the bridge, you could both hear and see the cars traveling under the bridge, which at that time was a complicated, neat trick, I think Brent was the first to be able to do that with a GPL track ... your picture reminds me that the track and bridge looked exactly like your picture ... I'm not sure how many ppl had the track, but I'm sure someone still has it, I no longer have it ... I hope someone takes it on as a project, it was an enjoyable track to run, and would be a nice addition to historical racing Americana ... good luck to the next editor who takes it up  Posted Image


The track needs a little finishing up ... and has for a long time. I will probably finish it up , it seems like it's hard to find the time to sit down and do it. It is a fun track and the figure of 8 track crossover is cool.

Maybe I'll post it if anyone wants to try it .....

ah, what the heck. You can download an old beta of Paramount Ranch here....
http://mail.comco-co...ta_sept2104.zip   ... at least for now.

If you are running 64bit windows, i don't know if the installer will work. All i know is it runs ... or did run on 32bit XP ... try at your own risk.

Wow , that was fast ..  i haven't run it for awhile. I know there are a few graphics bugs that need to be edited, but if you notice anything thats real freaky, feel free to post it.

Brent Adams ! :blink:
They told me you were gone for good and passed me your build files. I was working on the track and end up changing a lot of it and was going to finish it up but now, you're here, so I don't know what to do. :mellow:
