if anybody/somebody/nobody or yourself and @GzeroD
are looking for a worthwhile historical track it would have to be the Spa '93 with teh extra chicane/bustop thingo and the T1 from hell.. One of my goto tracks now for GT1 (and other older cars) in AMS2. There is an '88 version on RD, but its so bad it makes dogs howl and angels cry when you load it up...
Anyone know if there is a good source for this version in another game?
It may be interesting, I use that version of 88 in my races because I like the chicane of the bus stop and as far as I know the only conversion that exists is that of rfactor.
And yes that conversion is very poor and has little chance of improvement (in my opinion) if I remember correctly, the most advanced game that have this track is the last toca race driver for pc.
Working on a rfactor circuit as a base has its advantages and disadvantages, the advantage is that you already have a sketch made and when adding new textures everything will look smaller, so you can play with the margins of the track and the elevations, ( in theory) and this leads to rebuilding everything again, but you save making the base, you save a lot of time.
It can be a disadvantage, because you can waste time working on something that cannot be fixed.
Spa has a bad arrangement, because the restructuring of the track is much easier when the layout is urban and narrow.
