For some reason, unknown to me, the Codegua track from RD:

https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/autodromo-internacional-de-codegua.19702/

does not record total driven distance on track (none of the layouts).
File name was codegua0.6 and I thought the decimal sign was the culprit, so I renamed the track to simply codegua.
But nevertheless the driven distance still doesn't show.
I used several cars to rule out that factor.
It's not this either:
max length for track (folder-)name: 32
max length for additional layout name: 15


Can't really find anything abnormal and running out of ideas, any suggestions please ?

Also had a quick review and confirm driven-distance is not being recorded. It may relate to a particular setting (kseditor) within the KN5, or there's something a miss from the model itself...

@RMi_wood, @damone13x, @neil shaw, @Zwiss - would any of you gents, or any other modder share some wisdom on this issue - is it an easy fix?

Whilst waiting for a response, here's a quick & dirty ext_config with rain/grass FX, some material_adjustments, and track lighting...

I have a mod - more specifically a Lancia Delta Integrale Evo by Wolf24h - that just doesn't have that dark shadow underneath, which makes it very weird. See the video. Is there any way to fix this?

For sure not having an AI will result in no mileage, but could also be in combination without all 3 timers on the track.
AC relies heavily on the AI (it is needed for cams). Tracks reported length is also generated from the AI line.

Thanks for that. Codegua is quite a bright track so adding...

[SOL]
EXPOSURE_FIX=0.65

... to the config might help (adjust the 0.65 value to suit your prefs, or ignore the above completely and adjust the track in the Sol Config app).
YMMV depending on display settings.

The surrounding mountains could really do with desaturating and darkening a little, I think. Some are a little lime green, even with lower exposure.

Thanks for that info... Let's see if I got this right... The track comes with 8 layouts, all with their respective AI lines (fast/pit). So it may be missing the 'timers' as suggested, which would therefore be a modelling approach solution... hmmm

Also noticed AI cars zig-zag a bit around the start-finish points, and recall reading your test-approach to solve something alike... It had something to do with moving these points on track, recording the AI line, and returning the start-finish points back to their original place...

Do you still have the skin for Algarve 2020? I tried searching for it and the resource has been taken down.
When you say taken down, are you reffering to Racedepartment? Yes I do, if you look at my signature below this text here on GTPlanet there is a link to a one off download of all skins or on my profile page under information tab there is a link. Or I think the original links were page 1955 of this forum. Or here is the direct link just for Algarve skin:

Hm, as far I see, there are 3 intermediate timing objects and as far I know only 2 are allowed.
Max.: AC_TIME_2_L, AC_TIME_2_R but there are also AC_TIME_3_L, AC_TIME_3_R...:odd: :cool:
Maybe removing them could help?

Sorry, but I can´t still get in game. Nevertheless, I worked today on a own config too, lol.
Maybe someone could take a look if mine is worth to keep and maybe both could be combined?
Used some of my template code blocks.

Thanks for that insight re: timers - oh great - more to learn - it's all good. Will try your config after work, later this evening. Cheers 👍

Here you find more to learn, if ya like:
https://assettocorsamods.net/threads/build-your-first-track-basic-guide.12/

My config should have no working lights. I copied some code therein but as I didn´t found any lamps, that code shouldn´t work. I began a base config shortly after track release, but iirc I was never satisfied with that. As @Fanapryde asked for that track, I took a look on that old one and added that new light and rain fx code. So could be really awful or at least useable... ;)

Overall exposure balance is improved and mountains look much better desaturated. No SOL_EXPOSURE fix is needed either.
Can't test the rain config atm.
👍

Problem is the naming, folder name is Codegua and many kn5 start with the C in capitals.

must be named in lowercase ie "codegua" and "codegua_corto" etc etc

you can do it for yourself i dont think affects anything.

JH Design just released his new Formula Vector on RaceDepartment. As are his other two mods, it's very good!

Download link in the Description.



@SimRacing604
This would be a great mod for you to review on your channel. Maybe you could review all three of his mods if you haven't reviewed any of them before.


I didnt liked the tone of the glass , too dark for me. So I put this glass texture inside the skin of my choice and i started to see things better.

Or is it any way to lower the darkness of glass?

The Formula Vector is crazy. I saw the redline when I jumped into it the first time and though to myself "meh, it's only around 8 or 9000 RPM. Can't be that fast". Then I put my foot down and it was there to the moon in record speed. Was not expecting anywhere near that.

The car itself is actually pretty easy, it's just the ridiculous speed that makes it difficult to control.

i also just tried a couple of the track downloads including aa-Talladega from the MEGA folder and my Virus/Malware software did NOT detect any viruses or malware. So the aa-tracks seem to test good on my end.

take care,

The Porsche 928 has been updated.

Porsche 928 GTS (1994) v1.1

Our Racing Simulator
Fixed a few bugs, corrected a bunch of mistakes, added some more features and a little more optimization. Thank you all for your feedback.

But this update mostly Soma Ito who built no less than 22 lights refraction code in 1 day! No stress, no drama. This talented young man just got on with it and sent me the code. Very little help from me with the headlights and some tweaking here and there but truly excellent work my friend.

This coming week we'll have our physics guru JakubP have a scan over the fine details and the feedback I've had so far and see if we can make this awesome Porsche chariot ride a little bit better, pull a little bit harder and see if we can dial up the fun factor too. Look forward to this in a future update.

Full Credits and MegaNZ links in the Photo Album on the ORS Page, also available in the Announcements and Photo Albums section in the ORS Group.

V1.1 Download Link

Hey Everyone, I just noticed something strange with the mirrors of my opponents cars. You can see in the pic they aren't showing as mirrors, the texture seems wrong, however my cars mirrors are fine. i just noticed this, was there something changed in CM to cause this or did I mess this up somehow?
I get similar effects with GT4 mod, but not all cars, other series I've tried so far seem to be ok.

WRONG MIRROR TEXTURES IN GAME FIX:
This is an issue where the mod has the wrong texture mapped to the mirror surface object.
To fix the issue you need to map "MIRROR.dds" and NOT MIRROR_PLACEMENT.png to the mirror surface object.

Many quick and dirty mods have this wrong.
I do only use the MIRROR_PLACEMENT.png early in a car build to be able to quickly 1) see that all mirror objects are properly mapped and functional and 2) that the mirror objects are "the right way around and 3) the aspect ratio of the mirror mapping is correct so that there are no major issues later where people have to adjust mirror aspect ratio with CSP rear mirrors.
If you see a mod car showing the blue and red MIRROR_PLACEMENT.png texture in game it has its mirror textures mapped wrong.

Fix:
- export kn5 to fbx
- import fbx to kseditor (make sure to have the correct persistent file to not have to do over materials and shaders in kseditor)
- assign mirror.dds to the mirror materials
- export to kn5
- repeat with LODs if needed

If the issue is deeper (sometimes the mod maker has objects, materials or even mirror surface mapping wrong):
insert as step 2:
- import fbx to 3D editor (such as blender, ...)
- verify mirror objects are properly separated (you need separate mirror objects to assign in data file)
- verify that mirror material is unique only to mirror surface objects
- verify that mirror surface objects are UV mapped properly and aspect ratio is correct (here is where MIRROR_PLACEMENT.png comes top use)
- export to fbx
- continue with kseditor (assign materials + textures to all changed objects)
...

I HIGHLY recommend that everyone who is into AC mods learns those simple modding procedures - you will live a much happier life as you will be able to fix broken mods yourself.
It is a bit like the oil change yourself in your drive way kind of procedure of racing sim modding - everyone should know how to do it.


I'm not really sure what to think about this whole effort from the community to destroy Sim Dreams.

I mean sure, they are losers and destroying them would be a service to the internet, but at what cost?

If humans from YouTube's end don't get involved in SR604's predicament, he's just lost a source of income (a job) and hours of excellent content.

But beyond that, how does it make the modding community look? We have many people here on GTP that put a lot of care into freely distributed rips and that style of modding accounts for probably 95% of all the content we have. Take that away and you're only left with a morsel of scratch-built resources. I admit there's really good scratch-made cars and tracks out there, but they're very difficult to make and as such there isn't much content available in that style.

Incidents like these are gonna give people higher up in the game development world a real big reason to take a hard look at modding as a whole and go "yeah, I don't want that". Then if we go even higher, car companies might become more protective of their branding and start taking heavier legal action against modders like Nintendo or other video game devs do to fan projects. (Not to mention potential legal action from the model makers like the folks at IRacing, Forza etc.)

Well, the lid on the can of worms has been well pryed off at this point, but the question is would it have been more economical to simply leave it on? Would it have been better to simply not have a victory at all instead of a pyrrhic one? While it hasn't 100% happened yet, this could very well have multiple people lose their YouTube channels, aggravate copyright holders, cause game devs to avoid modding support and kill off the community going forwards IMO. While attacking Sim Dreams we might have put the nails in our own coffins as well.

Assetto Corsa very well may be the final haven for PC modding as we know it.

CROOKS RUINING OUR FUN FIX:
The issue with SimDream is not that the modding community should be quiet and "not wake up sleeping dogs" but that SimDream and their rotten ilk is MONETIZING what wasn't theirs to begin with and bringing the ENTIRE modding community into a bad light (I have had conversations with many people who were completely turned off by mods as a whole (including amazing free and paid mods by some of the best) because of the sour taste they had either due to gotten scammed themselves or having heard about someone having had issues.
The number of people I talked with who outright told me that they would never ever again touch a paid mod, no matter the provenance after experience with one of the scam artists is sadly high.

Nasty entities such as SimDream, RTM and alike no matter their pretend efforts to "clean up" have lastingly damaged sim racing with their shady practices and they belong ... ENDED.
This must be discussed and NOT put under the carpet.


I have a mod - more specifically a Lancia Delta Integrale Evo by Wolf24h - that just doesn't have that dark shadow underneath, which makes it very weird. See the video. Is there any way to fix this?



AMBIENT SHADOWS MISSING / BROKEN FIX:
The "dumb" ambient shadows are defined on a car model by two items:

1) body_shadow.png within car root folder (make sure it is reasonable for your car - compare with another reference car that should have a similar shadow)

2) ambient_shadows.ini within data.acd (the definition within the file are pretty self explanatory and simple - easiest way to set this up is by opening the car in CM custom showroom, switch off live shadow rendering so that the dumb contact shadows are used instead and then modifying the file and saving it for a quick feedback)
You can switch shadow rendering in CM Custom Showroom by hitting "CTRL + S"

You may have to unpack a packed data.acd (make sure to backup and delete the data.acd file so that CM does read the data from the unpacked data folder instead of the packed acd file.

Thanks for that info... Have already de-capitalised all uppercase characters, and have also successfully copied/renamed the track folder to 'codegua_06' together with relevant KN5 and Model files - so now have two alike tracks - and no distance-travel is recorded on either...

@RMi_wood and @slider666 both suggested the 'timer/s' (which I need to understand the modelling side quite a bit more) could be the culprits...

No a major concern on this, it just ruins the uniformity we've all come to know and enjoy in relation to CMs' driving stats. Will mention it to the Author on RD for future updates.

Appreciate your support and time on this, thanks.
