    new track for netKar PRO:Dodge Raceway Stadium

    Post by Andrea Lojelo on Sun Aug 22, 2010 7:02 pm

    Some years ago I started my online career racing in a nice Canadian League http://www.narca.ca

    There I got to know Ed "Gator", the organizer of the championship and creator of the most of the oval tracks of that league.

    For this reason when I thought about converting a track, I immediately thought about one of his works.

    I have to say, I love racing on short oval tracks. I supposed it was boring turning left all the time, but once I started I understood how fun was that!


    So here are the first screenshots of this conversion of Dodge Raceway Stadium , a nice oval track built by Gator.

    Still something needs to be done (sky and some more little things), but it will not take too long to release this track.

    Thanks a lot for your wonderful work, Ed, and for the permission to convert your work.













    Here a video of the old days, racing in Narca's league on this track.[/url] I guess you will recognize my ::hihi:: #95 truck (Radiator Springs idea started from there!)

    Here it is...i saw the name track on servers list yesterday evening. Very Happy

    Personally i love all the oval racing, and run in a short track like this is not simple...
    I've started in online racing using nascar 2002, and 2003 by Papyrus, joining italian
    nascar league called C.I.N.(the actual Lisgo community)

    Tonight i saw the real Nascar Sprint cup race in Bristol (another short...)
    what about:compliments for your work,hope to see it on my pc soon ::thumpsup::

    ...et lux fuit

    most of the bugs fixed. Few more little things to add and refine, and it will be ready for a pre-release test.

    The 500 seems to be not powerful enough here. I had much more fun with the F1800, F2000 and Ftarget. Can be a completely different story with a full grid, though! In that case the small 500 could be once more a real good candidate.

    I just uploaded the Candidate Release version of this track. It's available for all drivers registered to our championship. You will find the link in the control center.

    If you find any bug, please send me a PM. Thanks a lot for your help.

    We are planning to create a public release shortly.

    Well, so far I've noticed only two "bugs": white-flashing road surface under car and too big bumps (I think) at exit of T2.

    have you installed the shader fix for the flashing surface? you can find it in the beta testers forum. Please let's continue this conversation there.

    Bumps are there on purpose to make it more thrilling, but this is just my personal opinion about it. It might be that I've to smooth it a bit. Anyway with warmer tires it's easy to go over it.

    I've just found the updates for RC - sometimes I really lost myself here Smile I'll update this post about issues...

    UPD: now all looks pretty good Smile Maybe shadows of safety barriers on the infield looks like black holes, but it is not big deal.
