GTR BlackHawk Farms...... MIA...????
« on: December 14, 2007, 03:08:19 pm »
alright, now that I have been spinning around, in GTR 1, I seem to remember a track that was one of my favorites....

BlackHawk Farms.   chocks away

But I can't seem to find it anywhere..... I have it for rFactor, and GTR2 version is horrible, does anyone have the original track?
 :biggrin:
If not, what would it take to convert it backwards to GTR1 from the other platforms??

HELP???

hehe. Nope no head damage Steiny it's a real track in Rockton Illinois area just west of Chicago. I've driven it IRL, and yep it's a gem to drive even in the sim world.  thumbs up

Sorry I don't know about the GTR version Jeff. Rfactor version is ok, but would be nicer with a bit of work on the trees, barriers, and especially the "swamp" at the end of home straight entering T1. That's right. The track was built with hazards like a golf course.  rotfl

BTW, I am not certain if this is still the case, but at one time Mario Andretti held the track record with his CART indy car back in the early/mid 90's. I think his lap was right around 52 seconds. Not bad for a 2 mile road course.  chocks away

Well, hell. If we're gonna do a conversion to GTR1, why not one to GTR2 as well? (IE a BETTER one?)

You'd have to take the original from SCGT, whatever the hell that is/was, as that seems to be the original game. (Which migth be the reason for it not beeing there for GTR1 anymore?!

I actually found a nice version from Nascar Heat..... Yes, Heat had a load of road course add ons, I have the track, but no clue how to get it done proper....

The rFactor one is fair, to say the least, just not like the original I used to run....

I guess I could give it a go, I got Bobs Track Builder now......Still no clue there either....

It is on my list of purchases......After my son has a Merry Christmas.....Darn Teenagers.

Anyways, wasn't the time issue I was looking for help on....  thumbs up

I am trying to incorporate the pit area in, as it has to be created separately. and then export it to some other program to make the rest of the textures, I guess?   :?:  :?:

I am going to be COMPLETELY involved in this, I have been wanting to make something for our games, for as long as I can remember.... And now is the time.   chocks away

I have tried to understand the Manual that comes with BTB, and it falls short, or at least it assumes you (I) have a clue.... pffffttt   :think:


Anyways, if any have any hints or can point me to any helpful sites/tutorials, would like to hear of them.

 :salute:

Til Then......

Waypoints, and Nodes, and Textures will be what I gaze at....

Cheers

Jeff

There was this site that our Sandra Knight  pointed to a hell of a long time ago. Maybe someone can find it.. it's a front for helping ppl build tracks, but it was pre BTB i'm sure. or was that the site that had to do with the PSCC-mod.. if someone remembers, please post it here.

I have found a version for gtr2, and have uploaded it to my filefront account, I had to heavily modify the cameras though.... Super fun to drive, and is a straight conversion from the SCGT version.....

Have at it....
