Longford 1967 by Woochoo v0.99

Recommended Posts

VELOCIPEDE

Fonte.
 
Ok, it's ready now
I'm happy to report that Longford will also be included in the base install of the Steam version of rFactor2 when rF2 Steam is released

This new version of Longford includes a number of visual updates. Textures have been adjusted for the recent updates to the lighting system. New house models have been added and the Control Tower has been updated. Night driving has been improved with adjusted settings. Road surface materials have been tweaked and some minor road mesh changes have been made. A new AIW file should accommodate a wider variety of cars and provide more satisfying racing.

|======What is new in this version?======|
|========================================|
+@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ V0.99 @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@+

- Optimisation: Pit tents and metal fence panels now visable in high/med detail levels, may slightly reduce fps.

================================================== ===
===Known Issues, Non-Implemented Features, & Notes===
================================================== ===
===The AI
- Sometimes they'll hop onto the dirt banks on the inside of a few corners.
- F1 and some other cars may collide with tyre markers.

===Headlights
- Some cars may not have their headlight beams rendered on road, terrain and objects correctly or consistently (includes ISI Corvette C6, Honda NSX cars)

===Wet Road Reflections
- Fences and some terrain areas are not currently in the reflection list due to the nature of the reflection system.

===Shadows
- Some popin, popout, and awkward shading of trees/bushes/buildings etc. In some cases this is a compromise between shaded vegetation and overly bright unshaded vegetation.

===Poles and Fences Flickering in the Distance
- Distant poles and fences may flicker due to the difference between shaded and unshaded parts of the mesh. There is a constant reevalution of which part of the mesh to render into the available

pixels, and where bright and shaded geometry is close the rendering alternates between bright and shaded pixels. Using something like nVidia's DSR should reduce flickering by rendering at higher

resolution and then the resultant downsizing for display will have blended the brightness transitions.

===Bridges
- Bridge structures don't currently extend down into the river bed mud. When bridge structures are updated, they will.

===Terrain Decals
- Slight blur where grassy road-edge decals blend into terrain.

===Normal Mapping
- In a couple of areas one or two of the normal maps don't seem correctly oriented with the lighting system.

===General Efficiency / Optimisation
- This project was started as a beginner some time ago, and has been a learning experience. Skillz, philosophies, techniques, and technology have progressed in that time. As a result, and the size of

the circuit, updates are a rolling process, and there isn't usually time to do all desired updates at or by a specific time.
It is planned that the older models and textures will be updated, optimised, or replaced.

===Continued Development
- The main target of development will be updates/remakes of older buildings/structures.
- 3D trees for track-side trees are planned, but takes too long to reach my desired accuracy at this time (some unreleased work has occurred but it is time-intensive).
- Separating painted lines from road textures to separate grip levels (pitlane and grid lines are already separate).

================================================== ===
+@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ V0.98 @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@+
This release is primarily a maintenance release to fix an AIW issue.
- AIW: Fixed issue where some low-grip/high speed cars would miss apexes, and the final corner entirely (added AI path kinks before turn in - doesn't appear to concern cars which already worked

well).
- AIW: Attempted to help some modern GT type cars avoid first lap crashes by narrowing AIW corridors.
- AIW: Some improvement for historic cars (BT20/Howston) crashing in wet conditions at kink before Tannery Corner.
- AIW: Note, Since early builds there have been three variations of the starting grid, so experimenting with those may help avoid first lap incidents (eg. Staggered Grid for modern cars).
- House: Replaced old GPL model of large house on driver's left, after rail crossing (new model is ~11K triangles).
- Tents: New tent models and textures to replace the old ones.
- Road: Slightly eased some bumps (track mesh) on the flying mile.
- Road: Added slight hump/dip between turn two and the viaduct (was hard to be sure from reference photos, but newly acquired reference photos from a different angle make it much more obvious -

thanks to Cooper997).
- Road: Some changes to material specular settings.
- Terrain: Some changes to texture & material specular settings.
- Terrain: Some changes to some normal maps.
- Trees: Improved tree settings for people not using transparency AA (should look less bad).
- Grasses: Improved tree settings for people not using transparency AA (should look less bad).
- Bushes: Removed some shadow casting in viaduct area.
- Footbridge: Partial update/partial remake of textures.
- Crowd: Minor tidy-up work on the old 2d cardboard crowd (yes, still the same old crowd textures at this time).
- Tyre/Tire Markers: Slight reduction in height of collision mesh (will still flip cars with low floors etc).
- TDF: Small changes to road bumps in terrain physics definition file.
- CAM: Some chages to trackside camera clipping planes to reduce z-fighting (not perfect, but better).
- Maintenance: Deleted a few megabytes worth of old textures from Maps.mas.

- Control Tower: Some quick and basic texture adjustments.
- Water Tower: Higher resolution texture, and material adjustments.
- Culverts: New models for Viaduct, Tannery Straight, and Newry Road culverts.
- Roadside Marker Posts: Replaced with new models and textures (including reflectors).
- Hay Bales: Textures retoned and higher resolution.
- Fences: New wire texture for fences (includes rusty barbed wire).
- Fences: Added normal mapping to some fence elements, and increased texture resolution for some fences.

- Trees: Rearranged some poplar trees after Newry Corner.
- Trees: Fixed some broken shading on some trees.
- Trees: Removed self-shadowing from trees (in some ways it's better, in some ways it's worse).
- Trees: Fixed some Z-fighting on some distant trees.
- Trees: Replaced some tree walls with massed X-trees.
- Sponsor Banners: Adjusted some textures and added specular and normal maps to some banners.
- Lights: Shortened attenuation of streetlights and floodlights.
- Shadow Meshes: Removed some old-style dummy shadow meshes from some buildings (now using the visible mesh to cast some shadows).
- AIW: Adjusted fast path on Tannery Straight to reduce AI crashes in wet conditions (some may still occur when low-grip cars are side by side).
- AIW: Some adjustments to create (a quite subtle, hacky) wind shear reverb effect on power poles.
- Physics: Some changes to physics of movable objects (hay bales, marker posts, signs)
- Indy Aero: Included VehicleConfig.ini to force Indy DW12 to use Roadcourse aero package.
- Optimisation: Some batching and adjustments to some draw distances may produce small FPS improvements.
+@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ V0.92 @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@+
- Three versions of the track: Historic, Level, & Staggered grids (may ease AIW & online grid/collision issues).
- AIW file: New version of Level grid, hopefully to fix online grid issue (otherwise use staggered).

- Cameras: Adjusted static orientations.
- Sounds: Added a subtle ambient environmental sound (initial implementation).
+@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ V0.91 @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@+
This version is mainly a fix version for v0.90 [edit: this didn't work out in v0.91].
- collisions with fence on Long Bridge causing flips/flying: hopefully fixed.

2013-08-19: Longford v0.90 - FIRST VERSION for rF2
by woochoo

OLD rF1 VERSIONS:
2013-03-14 v1.0 (probably final version for rFactor 1)
2012-10-19 v0.99
2011-08-17 v0.97
2010-07-11 v0.9
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
48 garage positions
48 grid slots
16 pit spots
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

=====What is in this first version for rFactor2?=====
all the basics
- realroad with ~1.5m-square road sections (build 240 realroad shader)
- realroad profiles
- wet weather road reflections
- animated marshals (some have been customised)
- hdr profiles

This v0.9 is meant to be a fairly minimal migration of the circuit from rF1 to rF2.
There hasn't been much "update" work carried out so far.
Some textures have been adjusted to work a bit better with the daylight and HDR systems.

=================================================
=====Known Issues & Non-Implemented Features=====

===The AI
- Sometimes they'll hop onto the dirt banks on the inside of a few corners.
- They'll rarely form up correctly after the warmup lap, primarily due to the 3-2-3-2... grid layout (skipping the warmup lap is a fine solution).
- Some cars may collide/crash in the first corner of a race (more likely in rainy conditions), in the Viaduct section, along King's Bridge, and on approach to Tannery Corner.
- F1 and some other cars may collide with tyre markers.

===Animations
- The flags and bunting are still 2D texture animations, rather than bone-based animations.
- Some of the animations have small glitches and sometimes the marshal's headphone's are floating.

===Wet Road Reflections
- Fences and terrain are not currently reflected due to the nature of the reflection system.

===Water/River
- Have not yet added newer style of water animation/reflection.

===General Efficiency / Optimisation
- Due to starting this project as a beginner, and also using a few GPL-era models, there are more draw-calls going on than there needs to be. The newer models I've made are generally assigned only a single material and make less cpu load despite higher polycounts, and they look better. It is planned that the older models will be updated or replaced.

===Continued Development
- The main target of development will be updates/remakes of a number of buildings/structures.
- 3D trees for track-side trees are planned.

Now for a quick update note:

- I've remapped the racegroove texture so there are no chinks where the the mapping didn't line up (much better now).

- Mirages are now appearing.

- Fixed listener positions for some trackside cameras that were effectively muted.

- Possibly fixed the bridge fence collision mesh that was flinging people into the air, but i'll test it some more.

- Fixed a levitating clump of grass.

- Fixed some grass popup.

- Did a little more vertex painting (also made a mini-tute which you can check out here).

- Batched a few bushes which will improve performance (probably by about 0.00001% tongue.png ).

- Posted a possible "fix" for the pit box not showing (see post 181 (just a few prior to this post - make sure you drive through the pit-in xsector on your way into the pits - awaiting confirmation). edit: Just ran a few laps online and offline testing for the the pit box bug, and the box appeared as normal every time (pit spot #1 or #2 i think).

I first drove this track several years ago in Rfactor. I loved it and when there was an opportunity to request favorites Longford was first on my list. I drove the original rF2 release, and found the hay bale monster :thumbsup: and yes I loved the track. Recently I was priviledged to drive the pre-release (test) for what must be the version that I downloaded a few minutes ago. The pre-release version is a joy to drive, both day and night, in the Lola T280, especially since the viaduct is a bit easier to enter. I am really looking forward to driving this track. Thank you for sharing your talent and love of this track with the rest of us. I really appreciated your tenacity and talent as exhibited in this excellent track.
