Well.... smoggy was constructing two (2) Watkins Glen tracks for the 1971 season.

There was the "interim" layout used for the '71 Can-Am and '71 Trans-Am races in July and August.

Then there was the layout with the completed "boot" section that was ready for the '71 Grand Prix in early October.

Well.... as I just said  :shock:  :D  :wave:

I think Dr Tooth prefer to use Watkins 67 Papy cause Glen's versions by Smoggie are not as good as the original.

And I agree.

I really don't understand why not using Smogbike's right Watkins(without boot).Of course it's not the nicest track, but with a few texture updates it's not the worst track we have.

Nevertheless, here're two screenies of Papy's Watkins with new armco I made, to have a more proper look.I would publish the update if there exist interest.

It would be a mod specific update.

Pretty sure GPL Road Atlanta is Dave Noonan original, not a conversion.
:)

It is a Dave Noonan track as I recall, he built tracks in a totally different method than we know (Microsoft Access based I believe)and that's why there's so many sections for example. Of course he built his own 3do editor as well and other tools I know of but no one ever saw. Dave got a bad run back then for daring to charge money for his thousands of hours work.

Road Atlanta is also one of my favorite tracks.

I will get Road America done this year, I don't have the build files anymore but I have some special reverse engineering tools of my own to resolve that, ironically Dave's 3do editor is a part of that process  ;)

I wish Road Atlanta would be remade to the level of accuracy equal to the upcoming Can Am Mod.

Well I can reverse engineer these tracks in a matter of minutes to produce .gtk and .tso files which gets a big chunk of the work out of the way, I just did it for my own Road America after I actually first found my tools to do it (luckily some very old CD's still read) so if any track builder wants to update a track or has also lost his build files give me a yell.

Thats great news!!! This should make it possible to recompile the know tracks which cant be raced online because of the discos etc (Goodwood and so on). I always assumed that it wasn't possible because the people who build the tracks left and no one had the necessary files to fix things.

We're suppose to get Donnybrooke before the Can Am mod. Shouldn't we have it by now if we're going to get the mod for the weekend?  :) :)

I don't think that will happen. Blame holidays. It's terrible when people take a break!

Yes, real life got priority, Donnybrooke71 will come later. We have an alfa Road America and the Road Atlanta build files, but that's another story.
Nevertheless, I'm sure you'll enjoy the mod on the available tracks

The new Donnybrooke ( donbro71 ) will be released in a few weeks. It will be not ready with the MOD so please wait with patience for it; thanks.

The new Road America ( roadam67 ) will be the next in line so, in a few months it will be ready; I hope you will enjoy.
Ciao! :wave:
