I already explained why I use sharemods before, but I guess my ad blockers are good because I don't ever get ads or clickbait there, and I certainly don't get paid for uploading there, I use it for things I can't put on RD specifically because I don't have to sign up for an account. I'll try to find something else, because I don't want to inundate people with ads.
Some of the reworks I did to that track couldn't just be done with a skin, which is why I initially made it a new track with a new name. It came with a new shader, so that's not just something that can be packaged in a skin or done with an INI alone. Maybe it's overkill for what it is (it's a map so you can set only part of a texture as emissive instead of the whole thing) but there'd be no way to release it as just an ini or a skin.
Unfortunately I still have the transparent grass problem there. I downloaded the version of the track from that post, the skin, and that fix. I deleted both 2018 and 2019 tracks, I deleted all configs for both 2018 and that independently released 2019 from config/tracks and config/tracks/loaded. I manually installed 2018, manually installed the skin, manually put the fixed config in config/tracks and config/tracks/loaded (to prevent CM from downloading the one from github) but still no grass My confusion continues.
Maybe it's because the grass has the ksgrass shader. This is not good with grassfx, it makes the textures transparent.
