Neil, apologies, I couldn't have tested this track back in May and just came across it during a purge. I really like it!
Has there been any progress since May, and are there any plans to add the remaining three layouts (as per Terra21's 2016 version on RD)? The tarmac is there and driveable, they just (!) need coning off and separating.
I'm getting some weird shading on the trees and bushes in certain light... could the normals need pointing up (just a guess... IDK)?
Thanks for this track - was it scratch-built?
What other tracks are yours?

the texture folder and the fbx project must be in the same folder, and with 3dsimed you must generate the AC.ini file so that the AC sdk recognizes all the textures.

Anyway, to add more pits you can do it with 3dsimed only, clone a pit box and rename it, place it where you want and that's it, you don't need blender to do that task.
They are in the same folder and there is the .ini file. I don't know why that is happening. Maybe because of impot/export settings?

I avoid using 3dsimed for editing because it takes so long. In blender I could add the AC Cubes much faster. But I want to find out what is happening because what if I'm making something else and I can't rely on 3dsimed for editing? :/

3dsimed
  • pink textures = missing texture (NOT because it is encrypted)
  • invisible textures = set to transparent+alpha with alpha texture
  • wrong texture = bad UV scalling / wrong texture / shared texture disrupted by bad objects / some other excuse

your track has several issues!
One reason "might" be that the track was never processed with ksEditor (made in blender/max/ or edited and saved as .kn5)


Try this:
export .kn5 with CM/kn5conv
open new .fbx in editor if needed
open .fbx and save .kn5 with ksEditor

Honestly if you are just adding grids simply create a new file in 3dsimed, add your grids, save as example_new_grid.kn5
add to models.ini (there is no need to edit a .kn5 just to add objects/grids/pits)
I tried using kn5conv but the track couldn't even be loaded to Blender. The error says: "ASCII FBX files are not supported" (I guess that's for 3dsMax?)

Right now I'm editing the cubes with 3dsimed and I'll give some feedback later. It is quite difficult to use.

Like I said, I wanted to find the issue so I can learn and have no problems like this in the future.

Here's the track if you guys wan't to take a look:

3dsimed messes up the exports regularly (UVs and texture assignments), but the persistence file it makes is alright. To get rid of the transparency, open the fbx you exported in 3dsimed and re-export it, then load the second fbx in blender and it should look alright.
kn5conv exports ascci files, like it says, so you can use the autodesk converter (free tool) to convert it to binary. Also, sometimes kn5conv will export at 100x scale, so keep that in mind if you export an fbx back to ac and things are huge or don´t show up
(Im not a fan of 3dsimed for anything but import/export but I guess if you´re just doing pitboxes it might be better to learn how to do it there and spare the hassle)

There is nothing wrong with this track

The only thing wrong is your process, and 3dsimed exports it perfectly to FBX.

I even said you could create a new, separate .kn5 and add the pits you want via models.ini


Why not use?:

Complementing the work of another site, Alfa Romeo T33B/1968 (Velo's), I just converted the missing skins and added other livery. Some details are missing, but the car was correctly converted, not like the ones they are making, but full of problems, but still running on the track.

I remember making a skin for myself that fixed the trees a little when this was released. I'll share it after work this evening.
It's not a proper fix, but it makes the problem a little less noticeable.

Neil has also made Hampton Downs, Pukekohe Park and Terratonga Park, and is currently working on Motorland Aragon.

He doesn't pop onto this site very often, but if you search his name, you'll find the links to his other tracks.

I started quickly fiddling with Jerez '94 to swap out some of the bland terrain textures and one thing led to another... long story short, here's a 'new' track called Circuito de Jerez 2010 assembled from various versions of the track, with GrassFX, RainFX (both bastardised and with surplus stuff no doubt, both could definitely be improved), lots of new textures baked in throughout, new billboards, active airspace, geotags, new previews and other stuff I've forgotten.
It's probably historically inaccurate, I'm not sure when the new pit buildings were added but the '94 track is a better base (IMO) than the newer version. The '2010' year was pretty randomly chosen as an identifier.
Released in a new folder so it doesn't undo the work of others, however anonymous they are.
Needs lighting added to the config if anyone has time to spare.
The 'Timber' skin for some billboard backs needs to be active... for some reason this wouldn't bake in to the track. No idea why.
The billboard mapping is as per the original track, ie slight stretching/squashing in places as art is reused in different locations, but I've tried to minimise the effect.

Great! I had been waiting for another version of Jerez for a while. Thanks a lot. One quick question though. I downloaded it and placed it in the tracks folder, but when I try to run it, Content Manager gets an error message saying Track not found. It doesnt do that with any other tracks.
Am I missing something? I am pretty sure I am missing something.

That's odd - it works fine at my end but it's very possible I've mucked something up. Anyone else having the same problem?

It is because the main .kn5 is named differently to the track folder. Match them up and you’re good to go. (Need to be careful if you rename the kn5 that you update the models.ini)

I re-named both files and changed the models.ini and all working great. This is now probably the best Jerez available. Would it be possible to have a layout minus the cones/chicane at the end of the lap?

Weird. My folder name (circuito_de_jerez_2010) and main kn5 name (jerez94.kn5) are completely different, but the track loads fine, works fine. I obviously tested it before uploading and just tested it again.
Unless something happens locally and is cached because I created the new folder..? Whisky Tango Foxtrot.

Anyway, here's a new link with the main kn5 and the models.ini renamed appropriately. Sorry about that..! Still can't quite understand why it originally worked (and continues to work) for me with mismatched folder/kn5 names.


@Mau Soleo thanks for reporting this - over 1,000 downloads and you were the first person to flag it. 👍

I feel bad for not reporting it now - I figured it was an oddity of my CM installation, happens now and then with new circuits. Easily fixed once you know what to look for, but I don’t know why it works for some and not others - presumably a caching issue as you suggest - your CM knows which kn5 to look for but mine doesn’t 🤷🏼‍♂️ Thanks for the great track 🙏🏻

Ha ha, no worries, and thanks.
The sad thing is, I previously knew I'm supposed to rename the main kn5 and edit the models.ini when duplicating tracks but kind of forgot when everything seemed to work just fine.

Hi, I am looking for the Physics Test Build for the Mclaren 720s GT3 that was hosted on the Toprace Discord seperately to the main car.

I got the car itself, but all versions provided here seem to have the old physics that made the car unreasonably slow compared to other GT3s.
So did anyone install the updated physics before they got deleted and can share the data.acd file?

In my case, I changed it without thinking, so didn't think to report it. I have a set of things that I do with each new track (such as add a new VAO, check the skins folders, resize the preview pics in the UI etc) before I even move it into my tracks folder. This was just one of those fixes.

If anyone wants to add the FIM-sanctioned layout without the T11 chicane - go ahead, fill your boots. It'd be a good addition.
