On a positive note, I want to give a few examples of how members of the modding community worked together to improve both car and track mods, and everyone benefited from it, including the modders that originally released them. These mods were improved without having to hack or decrypt them. These are just a few of many examples...

1. On this forum, I posted about how Aosta could really use an update. Within the next couple of days, members of this forum developed new config files, skins, and more. It went from an "outdated" mod to one of the best looking mods available.

2. Valerbanen became a hot topic recently. Originally re-released and improved by Legion, a few members applied their different touches and improvements. Now it's an even better track mod.

3. Rudskogen, the current version originally from a drift group, has been improved by members of this forum, and will possibly be improved even more over the next few weeks. It might even be improved more with lidar data.

4. Many car mods needed some tweaking and adjustment. Several notable members pitched in to adjust driver placement, fix shifting animations, remove driver heads (that affect VR users), adjust gauge displays, adjust shaders, and several other things. In some cases, the original modder consolidated all of the revisions and re-released the mod.

Now, briefly, on a negative note, there have been a few mods that badly needed these tweaks and adjustments from other helpful members of the community. However, they couldn't do anything, and the mod often remained in its' "broken" and "unfinished" form. What's worse, when the original modder was contacted about making the changes, they often either ignored the requests, or worse, argued about making the updates, or it was "their way, or the highway." I even read a long statement from one modder not wanting to provide standard previews of his mods, but instead, audacious, busy previews featuring a variety of showrooms--and he insulted those who didn't want that. Of course, these are the worst examples.

To end on a positive note, the best mods are either improved by the original modder that listens to feedback and appreciates it, makes the improvements himself, and re-released the mod, -OR- the mod is improved with the contribution of many.

THIS is what the modding community is about. Whether mods are encrypted or not, the positive examples above are what will improve and sustain this community over time.

You can add my version of Albacete to this list. When I first released it on here, several people gave me positive feedback to help me improve it, and many others volunteered their own updates and additions which allowed me to complete it to a level that I was satisfied with.
There is a great community here, and it seems a shame that a certain group of people gang up to come and create drama here every few weeks.

To everyone having trouble getting new side lines (track limits) to load all the time:

This problem can be caused by old .BIN and other .AI files in the AI folder of any track. They are created by CM to help load the track quicker it seems. The problem is when new side lines are created and then embedded into the fast_lane.ai, they aren't carried over to the .BIN or .AI files that were created by CM previously.

So in order to not have to hold down the shift key every time, just delete everything in the AI folder except the fast_lane.ai and pit_lane.ai.
Do this AFTER U have already embedded the new sidelines in the fast_lane.ai file. When CM loads the track next time it will create new .BIN and.AI files as needed and they will have the new side lines in then

A batch file can be made to delete these files on either a global basis or track by track I would say, don't U think?

So long and thanks for all the fish :-)

He just posted a few but yes his tracks are mostly missing. I love his tracks.

Those he just posted are how I learned about his tracks. Really wish there was a page with all of them in one spot as most of these tracks I have never heard of before.

That's my favourite track! Where can I find an update?!?!?

Iija is making 9k a month for rainFX that people just want for pretty pictures with reflections, i really can't see AC modding dying anytime soon. Only thing that can kill it is Kunos themselves.

Threats stop making mods won't stop people using AC, there are already far too many mods to ever realistically use in a sim...

Having said that i go back to what i have said before, they run the show now, pretty much own AC 2.0 and never paid Kunos a dime for fair use.....
If you use CM / SOL etc, you have new developers so we play by their rules, its just what it is.
A few modders not realising stuff won't make Iija pull the plug on over 2k a week just from rainfx.
I doubt many of the guys at Kunos are on 2k a week.

people themselves are to blame, since they pay for this nonsense. any of us, if we were in Ilya's place, would also make money, but a person always has a choice.

Here is the car: https://www.mediafire.com/file/f1at9kf0sfvzpr7/1996_JGTC_Lamborghini_Diablo_GT1_%28For_AC_V1.16.3%29_%28By_KENNETH_%26_unknown%29.rar/file

I've had this a long time. From when KENNETH first opened his Discord group back in August 2019. I think it's been converted from GTR2. I don't think that the original GTR2 model was ever released or completed though.

It would be good if someone could update this though.
Oh, it was KENNETH's mod. I should've thought of asking him.
Thank you!
