Nordschleife Tourist v2.01 by DJC and TOSCH

Recommended Posts



Hi all, we are excited to bring you another update to the Nordschleife.
We now have a new layout for you, VLN. This takes the track around the Mercedes area of the GP track and misses out the far West side part.

Compared to the 24 Hour event of Nurburgring, the VLN is a lot more quiet affair, a lot less spectators in the GP stands. The time is set in October so expect to see some of Toschs updated Autumn trees.
We bring you back, the Tourist Layouts (Summer and Autumn), both updated. All 4 layouts are now packed up in one.

I've updated our change log again, found HERE.
Please beware on the Autumn layouts, performance maybe not be as high as the Summer layout. Only reason for this is because sun is low and shadows are longer at this time of year, so don't be afraid to lower graphics settings down a notch if you do get low FPS.

From DJC and Tosch

nuova versione 1.80

Download link:  http://www.drivingitalia.net/forum/index.php?app=downloads&showfile=6877


Version 1.80 05/09/14

DJC change log v1.70 to v1.80
- Re-done AI pit paths in pit area and paddock. Had found a bug where groups of cars could not stop in time to enter Pit entrance. This was because the way-path that leads from the main path was just not long enough on the original.
- Staggered the pit boxes 1,11,2,12,3,13....,etc, instead of 1,2,3,4,5,6....... Should reduce the chance of someone pitting right in front of, or behind, you. PIC HERE
- Fixed collision of pit guard rail where it only worked in one direction . Before you would get sucked out if you were to touch it.

- Cleaned up the texture of the ticket house in Photoshop best I could do.
- Recoloured the gate ticket machines to match the colour of the new real life ones.
- At the ticket machine, left hand lane, replaced missing brick kerb, was just a long hole before.
- Lowered the white lines marking the lanes by a few cm's. They were floating to high above the road, I guess that would look bad in 3D.

- Extended pit exit.
- Installed some much needed working pit exit lights.
- Made brand new pit exit chain railings and posts, all to match nearer real life ones.
- Re-Modelled cones and added them to pit exit. They glow in the dark too.
- With the exception of the cones just before the chain railings, made them all moveable. Before they were glued like concrete.

- Cleaned up the edges of the paddock signs. Before all the edges were all jagged like staircase, now they nice and smooth. Also, removed the flicker from them where the pole would flicker in and out of them from a distance.
- Built near pit exit a glow in the dark info track warning screen just like the real Nords one.
- Planted billboard trees around the paddock area (High and Max track detail).
- Changed colour of 3d grass in the grass patches round the paddock. Made the dirt and grass level with top of kerbs. Dirt blended the edges. Filled in all the cracks. See Pic Here.
- Remodelled the roof of the booking office to make it look less like a paper umbrella. Made the walls have glass ready for a new texture by Tosch. Planted some shrubs next to this building too. Added billboard to the red devil restroom. See Pic here.
- Made changes to mesh of the red devil restroom to make the textures less wonky and more straight. Raised the whole building out of the ground by 25cms.
- Removed stone kerbs at Hocheichen, Quiddelbacher Hohe, Flugplatz, Wehrseifen and Breidscheid. Stretched grass over the holes, blended the edges with dirt where needed. See Pic
- Adjusted the the colour of the Bilstein logo at the bridge.
- Fixed a lot more crowd lines and tents that I found floating or underground.
- Fixed a length of bushes that flickered just passed the old pits along the left in Hatzenbach area. Just too many billboard objects sharing the same space.
- I made a hill of trees near the GP Circuit higher by 20metres that you can see from one road at Hatzenbach.
- Fixed the missing left side of the old pit building. It's not viewable from in car but was an eye sore when watching from the new TV cams. See Pic here
- Fixed a lot of road signs where their poles were not viewable from the rear side. Looked odd when watching from TV cams where you would see floating signs without poles.
- Changed material settings on many objects to make them flicker or flash less.
- Made all the camp-site fires glow better in dark.
- Gave 73 track marshals a flag to hold. Green, Yellow & Blue etc. (qualify and race only). HUD flags should now work too.
- For race only, I blocked the right hand lane at pit exit. Bug was reported that you could gain a lap on everyone else if you started from pitlane and by going through this lane. See pic

Performance changes:-
- More LOD changes in order to both improve FPS and reduce pop up's where needed
- Removed many disused files lurking within all the Mas files. Totally unused. Files going back from the very first versions, files like tree walls, guard rail maps, tree maps, many unused normal maps, old set of Tattoo files. This all, totalling over 690 files, knocking 207meg off the download size. (I've backed them all up incase I ever need to use any of them)
- Removed unnecessary collision from track side objects that don't need collision detention. Objects outside the crash barriers that you would never touch. Weather this improves performance no idea, but no harm done doing it.

GP circuit integration:-
Unfortunately nothing has been done in this area. It's just as Pleclair left it. But a nice little Easter egg, what I have done is allow you access to the circuit if you drive through this crash barrier, see Pic here .
Don't expect anything like real road, smoothed road meshes, AI paths etc. Do expect missing buildings, holes, floating people, flying trees and a bumpy ride :P:D. Better than nothing :D. I added some cones and crash barrier at end of the circuit to guide you back on to the main Nords track.


TOSCH change log v1.70 to v1.80
- New cams. One cam group by "boblevieux (cam group 2). Moving cams in group3.
- Modified TDF file (should be less bumpy in some parts, thx for the feedback to all testers)
- Extensive AIW changes, corridor adjustments

- Lots of new and modified textures
- New HDR profiles (cockpit view improved)
- New real road presets
- New loading screens and Icons
- Added more shadows

HDR Profiles
Tosch has provided some HDR profiles. After choosing which one you want, due to a small bug with rF2, you must exit the track then reload the track again. That should load the profile correctly. If you don't the graphics appear darker than they should be. You should only need to do this once, unless you need to change profile again.

Appena provata, hanno fatto un ottimo lavoro grafica molto pulita e va liscia liscia.....


@Tr51, Credo che lo stuttering sia un problema della tua macchina e non della pista.

rispetto a quella prima versione del ring,  la base è la stessa ma è aggiornata, migliorata, ripulita da un mare di bug e resa più leggera.


disinstalla subito la vecchia e metti la nuova 1.8 :)

Ustia, il file pesa meno della meta' della versione che ho io!

Comunque non mi convince, graficamente mi sembra peggiore dell'altra versione e sopratutto, ci sono dei tratti di asfalto che trasmettono delle vibrazioni assurde al volante.

Ho un ffb strano sul volante che rende la guida molto difficile! come vedete dal video in certi tratti ho sbagliato perche cera troppo rattaling!

La grafica nn e' male ma nn mi piaciono i colori sopratutto dei alberi che li trovo troppo accesi ed in questo particolare circuito dove gli alberi sono tanti, si note troppo questo difetto!
