Here's the first volume of my Assetto Corsa Track Duplicate Overview Project Extended or ACT DOPE. (This isn't the real name)

Adria Raceway
Testing Car: Mazda RX-8 Renesis 13b


Folder Name: adria
Author: Mitja Bonca

This was converted from an old track by Slider916 and CodeF1. I don't know if it's something about my PC's configuration or what, but this track is extremely bright. I tried disabling CSP and Sol, but it's still way bright. Trackside objects are nice and detailed and it's a fun track to drive, but it's just so hard to see. I also notice some pink artifacts on things that are supposed to be transparent. I only play in VR so these problems may be exclusive to that. I imagine all of these problems can be addressed with an INI file, but when we have 13x's great version I haven't bothered.

This is a really great rendition of this track. The only comment I have on it at all is that it's bumpier than Mitja's version but maybe it's supposed to be bumpy? No graphical artifacts, it's not super bright, and it's a joy to drive on. I give this version the edge.

This one is pretty good with no glaring problems other than the absence of a map, but Content Manager cleared that right up. The variety in the trees is good so they don't seem repetetive. There are a lot of trackside objects that just aren't there though.

This version has really nice grass, it looks great, as well as trackside buildings and objects that really make it feel like a real place. The trees are not quite as varied as the other version but it still looks good. I tried it at night and unfortunately the trackside lights didn't actually light up but this might just be an ini file away from working. This is the version for me.

Update: I put together a lighting package for this so now the lights work at night:

This one is bright and video-gamey. A lot of the trackside objects are pretty low-poly but that's not to say it looks bad, it's just not super detailed.

I Believe this is a conversion from one of the Codemasters F1 games and it's pretty high quality. The version I downloaded has DRS zones included and blasting the 2019 Formula Hybrid around this track is awesome.

There are no glaring flaws with this version, but it definitely looks older and slightly less detailed than the Reboot version, but that's not to say it's not good, it is really good. It feels slightly bumpier and only a little bit less refined.

Folder Name: algarve
Author: AC Track Reboot
Download: https://sharemods.com/fjev0y8jas6m/algarve.7z.html
This version looks more detailed and it seems to have been smoothened a little bit, but not too much. There are still bumps in the road and that's a good thing. Lighting and detail are just a little bit better than Tiago Lima's version. It's definitely good.

This track is really fun to drive on in the right car. A Pagani Huayra was the car I used for testing here at first and it was definitely not the right car. (I usually let CM pick a random car for me for these tests and only switch it if it seems wildly inappropriate). Once I switched to the Formula Renault I had a much better time. Nothing bad about the way it looks other than some grass growing where it probably shouldn't.

This is a rework of the other version and it is mostly optimization and AI changes. It also fixes the grass. It makes an already good track into a great one. Grab this one!

This one is pretty bumpy. It looks really nice, but I feel like the road surface could just be a bit smoother. It does have one advantage of having a no-chicane variant included.

Folder Name: tmm_autodrom_most

I don't know for sure but I highly suspect that this is a rework of the one above. I suspect that because the hotlap start is in the exact same spot on the track at the same jaunty angle and dropping my car from the same distance in the air. It would be quite the coincidence if it wasn't. At any rate they've done a good job of making things look a little nicer and smoothing out those bumps.

Autopolis Oita

Folder Name:
autopolis_oita
Author: Omukun
Download: This track is definitely old looking, but it's still pretty good. Main problems I have with it are that the trees are a bit ugly and yellow, and there's a lot of flickering in them. Not sure what the deal is with that. Trackside objects look fine, the signs look good, and it's overall a pretty cool rendition. The transitions from sand to grass are a bit harsh and there's some pretty bad 3d grass going on. With some modern attention this could really be improved...

...Which is exactly what Zwiss has done here. The improvements are so numerous that it's hard to believe it's the same track. He's eliminated the harsh angular white road lines, replaced the trees with something that looks nice. Made the trackside look much less busy, added grassfx, and all kinds of little touches that make it more realistic. This is DEFINITELY the version to get.

I am pretty sure this is another F1 Codemasters conversion. It's really high quality and I can't really find anything wrong with it aside from the fact that it doesn't have any lights for night racing, but it's very solid anyway.

Folder name: bahrain_night

Download: http://www.simracersjapan.jp/nightpack.rar
This one is pretty much the same but adds a night mode. The night mode is a custom weather rather than with the custom shaders patch. The lights don't work when CSP is active. Otherwise it's pretty much the same.

This track is a further rework of the other versions. It's got lights, and the endurance variant that wasn't included with the other ones, and updated sponsor skins. It's extremely well done and my favorite of the four.


Baku

Folder name

Author: dpeters95

This track was originally created for rFactor 2 by dix-racing.pl. I actually really like the Baku circuit, which is probably an unpopular opinion, but I find it really fun to drive and interesting to look at. This rendition of it is lacking in the graphics department, mostly with the trackside buildings being flat with blurry textures. The major flaws though are the inaccuracies with the elevation changes and track width. It's mostly flat in this version, while the real one has some hills. This version of the track does come with DRS zones which is nice. This version was fine when no others existed, but now that Terra21's is here I'll probably never revisit this one again.

Folder name: baku
Author: Terra21
Download: http://www.mediafire.com/file/63660zt6ws2nsj7/baku.rar
Now this is one beautiful track. The buildings are incredibly detailed, and the track's elevation is all accurate. Baku might be a boring race to watch, but it's an excellent track to drive on, especially if you use this one. For me, this is my choice.

Folder name: mania2017-baku
Author: paul12451 / f1-mania.ru
Download: https://www.mediafire.com/?sdc12dbibfm6tdo
This one just seems like it's a direct rip of the Terra21 version with some f1-mania.ru logos around. I can't see any difference.

Author: patrikpat
Download: https://mega.nz/#!JuZgmarB!zrs3jhX9t3A_LlHooEZ1laX3K0EBUx7Kd-iFH15NSS4
This one also appears to be a rework of the terra21 version and it has some weird colored lighting that colors a lot of the buildings red. It's more noticable on the tight streets than the open areas. Maybe I have a bad ini file for it or something. It looks pretty weird. This isn't present if you're not using CSP/Sol.

Download: http://www.mediafire.com/file/2rwf83moefoaio1/barber_motorsports_park.rar
This version of the track has a very rFactor look to it. The track mesh is also not very smooth, so it's very hard to drive an indycar here. The trees are also pretty repetetive. It's not ugly, it's just not refined. Track lights look really weird and have a fake glow texture and aren't actually lights (tried at night, the place was pitch black)

Folder name: vrc_alabama

Download: Pay Mod https://vrc-modding-team.net/show/22
Now this is refined. This version is fantastic. Textures are sharp, trees look great, and the track surface is as bumpy as the real place looks on tv. Definitely download the skin pack from racedepartment to have the proper sponsors and branding since it's a pay track so it had to go with a generic fictional name. This track is easily worth the cash they ask for it.

This track is from before Kunos released the dream pack 2 DLC. It's fine, it just doesn't compare to the Kunos version. This has 2 of the variants.

Folder Name: catalunya_acu

Everyone has used this one. It's great. If you have the DLC, use this one. If you don't, buy it. If you can't, the ACU one is the next best thing.

Bathurst

Folder Name: bathurst
Author: unknown
Download: https://sharemods.com/a2uskwcmqxos/bathurst.7z.html
The surroundings don't look great, lap timer resets when crossing the line but no laps are recorded (missing checkpoints), the track is too wide, the track is too bumpy, the trees look flat. I don't remember where I got this version and it doesn't have a readme so I have no idea who made this.

Folder Name: bathurst_acu

Download: http://www.mediafire.com/download/42tfnynvmbn47kd/acu_bathurst_1.01.7z
This version is really good. I think it's a conversion from rFactor 2 (He also did a shift conversion, so I'm not sure if this is rF2 or Shift to be honest), and aside from the Kunos banners all over the start of the track it looks really good, all while maintaining a great frame rate. I really like this version.

There are a couple of skin packs for this track by Fred Basset that get rid of the Kunos banners and dress things up a bit

If this version of the track didn't exist I'd pick the ACU version, but since it does, this is the best version of Bathurst available right now. Trackside details are perfect, the AI is decent, lighting is spot on, and since it's a conversion from Forza Motorsport 7, the attention to detail is incredible. There's lots of skins available for it, and it comes with 3 track variants. The only complaint I have at all is that it doesn't maintain a full 90FPS (important for VR) for the whole lap, but it does through most of it. Despite that, this is a great version.

Blackwood
Testing Car: Chevrolet Corvette C4 ZR-1 (Tuned)

Folder Name: blackwood
Author: Tiago Lima
Download: https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/blackwood.2639/
This is a conversion of a track from Live for Speed and it's a really fun circuit. Trackside objects look fine, and the grass looks good too. It performs nicely and I don't really have anything bad to say about it. It also includes a bunch of layouts.

Folder Name: blackwood_reloaded
Author: GrandSurf
Download: https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/blackwood-reloaded-uhd-version.5804/
This version is another conversion of the same track and everything looks better. The grass, the trees, the buildings, everything. Lighting for night racing has been enabled and all of the eye candy looks good at a solid 90FPS. The only downside is it only has the main layout. Hopefully this gets expanded by the community, since it seems like it hasn't been updated by the author since 2015.

This track is converted from the same source that the Gilles75 version was converted from but manages to be a decent looking and decent running track. I don't particularly like this track because of all the chicanes but if I was going to drive on this track this would be the only version for me.

Trees that are cut in half vertically, really strange lighting, badly textured buildings, inaccurate track layout, hotlap starting point starts you on the grass on the other side of a barrier... you can skip this one.

Folder Name: brands-hatch / brands-hatch-indy
Author: Albert McSaltens
Download: https://www.racedepartment.com/threads/brands-hatch.90170/
This version of the track is pretty basic. The track layouts are accurate and the trackside buildings near the start are nice, but the trees are very repetitive and just behind the first layer of trees is a really obvious flat wall of trees which I am sure was done to help performance, but it doesn't look very nice and I wasn't able to maintain 90FPS throughout the lap anyway, even just by myself. I'd look for a more optimized and better looking version, myself.

This is a fantastic mod track. The textures look great, the buildings are highly detailed, it performs better than the other two, and the trees aren't repetitive. Overall this is the one to get if you don't have the dream pack 3 DLC.

Folder Name: ks_brands_hatch
Author: Kunos
Download: Dream Pack 3 DLC
Just like Barcelona, this is the version to use. Kunos knows what they're doing and have produced a faithful recreation of this place. It's the best looking version available, best performing version available, and if you're playing online, the most used version as well. This one is my pick.


Brasilia
Testing Car: Aston Martin Vulcan AMR Pro

Folder Name: acf_brasilia
Author: ACF
Download: This is a fun technical track and this version of it is great. All of the details are spot on, and comparing it to videos of the real life track it looks just right. It's a little bumpy, but I think it's supposed to be.

Folder Name: erl_brasilia
Author: Evolution Racing League
Download: https://www.mediafire.com/file/su6d6joh5kpia5p/erl_brasilia_V11.rar/file
To my eye this appears to be a modified version of ACF's version, with some texture changes. Some bugs and artifacts like pink transparent surfaces showed up during this modification so I'd recommend using ACF's version instead.

There is another Brasilia track out there by thestrobe8 but I can't find a download link to it anywhere. If you've got it, I'd appreciate the ability to try it out!

Download: https://www.mediafire.com/file/gp1rjvcdd4iasry/bremgarten1954.7z
This track surprised me. I expected it to look bad, and while it doesn't look amazing, it's a solid looking track. Everything except the blurry horizon mountains looks color corrected, and maybe it's just because I had grassFX on (really, grassFX transforms bland environments) but I really liked the way this one looks, plus the road surface is good and it's a genuinely fun track to drive.

Folder Name: bremgarten_faux_pre_war
Author: Legion
Download: I am not sure if this is a rework of the rainmaker version or if it was just a conversion done from the same source material. There are only a few differences I notice between this one and the other one. The main one is the signage is different and second is that there's no people around. I copied the bremgarten1954 ini file to this track and all of the lights and grassfx stuff carried over just fine and it looks awesome. This is the best version.

This version of Bristol has some graphical flaws like pink transparencies and the AI is pretty bad. AI Cars don't want to take off from the line, and just generally don't know how to drive the track.

This one looks slightly less detailed than the llamafett version but it doesn't have any bad transparency textures, and the AI is a little better. It does have track lights for night racing, this is the only version with this feature.

Folder Name: bristol_motor_speedway
Author: Legion (@GzeroD)
Download: This one is an update to apply to the llamafett version with all of the graphical artifacts fixed, way better AI, and some new textures. Also added is a new layout with a clay racing surface. One thing I REALLY liked about this version is how the start positions are placed. They are all at the side of the track at a 45 degree angle similar to an old fashioned Le Mans start. This really helps in starts with the AI. In a traditional grid the AI has no idea how to start (since AC doesn't have rolling starts) but this mitigates the problem quite nicely. This track is my choice for Bristol and if lights were added for night racing I'd be in heaven.


Brno
Testing Car: F1C75 Ferrari 312T

Folder Name: brno
Author: Sneer

This version of the track is fine. It looks good for the time it was released but it's a bit bland by today's standards, especially the grass and the road texture. Racing on it feels great. There aren't any lights for night racing.

Folder Name: brno_circuit

This is a pretty solid track with only a few flaws. some of the road texture variations are a bit abrupt and the flags look a little weird, a few sign textures are stretched to the wrong aspect ratio and the 3d grass objects are kinda bad looking but overall it's fine.

This is ACF's rework of lebastia85's track and it takes the track from "just fine" to "excellent". The grass is much improved and the signs are fixed. The weird flags are still there and now the sand looks bright white, but that's really all I can find wrong with it. The extra track layouts are also a plus. Definitely drive this version.

Where to start on this one? Really bad textures, the sun is too bright, the racing surface is too bumpy, surrounding terrain looks like the PS1 era. This is a conversion of a track from many years ago but I can't imagine it being well received even back then.

This version on the other hand is awesome! Great looking grass, really good performance, and it's great that we have a usable version of this track in AC because it's such a fun place to drive. Trackside buildings look great too, and the racing surface is very driveable while still feeling like a real track.

The textures are pretty blurry, but the track is really fun to drive. I don't have any complaints about the driving at all. The trackside buildings all just look flat, and a lot of the ground/terrain surrounding the track leaves much to be desired. The trees are also very repetitive.

Allow me to gush here for a second. I'm not exaggerating when I say that I think this is the best mod track available for AC. Not only is the track itself one of the most fun places to drive ever, but this version of it looks so real. Every detail on this track is PERFECT. There are some decorative rocks after the main pits on the left that look amazingly detailed. Those alone must have taken so many hours to get just right. And that is just one example. I am sure there's only a few different tree types but they are placed so perfectly that it's impossible to tell. I usually do a couple laps by myself and then a couple lap race to test tracks for this project but I spent a half hour just driving by myself here and then more time looking for places to get past the barriers and look at the surroundings because seriously, this is the most real looking place I've ever seen in a scratch built AC track. It's not loaded with lights and gimmicks and gizmos, it's just an incredibly fun track with perfect visuals. If you've never downloaded this, DO IT.

This is a fun track to drive, but the visuals in this version are a bit bland. It's easy to spot the seams in the grass texture, and there are some other artifacts like pink fences and stuff like that. The racing surface is good, and I didn't notice any technical problems with it, but nothing about the track really stood out in a positive way.

To my eye this looks like a reworked version of the MrMcPhisto version of this track. It's very similar but improved. The grass is redone to look really nice, all of the broken transparencies (like the pink sky when looking through a fence) have been fixed, and it's been given a good once-over to turn a bland looking track into a place that feels real and more detailed.

This version is quite a bit nicer than the Rainmaker version. The textures are a lot sharper, the road texture in particular looks fantastic. Trackside objects are a lot more detailed and the racing surface also feels a lot more realistic. It's what we expect from Mitja Bonca's tracks, for sure.

So... The hotlap start is about 30 feet in the air so after dropping through the ground I eventually end up back at the pits where I encounter a very tall, thin lollipop man. I look around and the horizon is mostly pink, and see some light fixtures with very pixellated fake glowy bits just floating instead of being mounted to a pole. I drive out onto the track and notice the hospitality suites are basically just floating. That's when I go a little bit too wide on turn 2 and phase through the wall and fall off of the surface of the earth into the pink void. Then I woke up in a cold sweat. Oh and there's no AI.

the name says it all really, it is a pre-alpha and shouldn't be judged too harshly, but it was released to the public and then abandoned and for some reason it has 3.5 stars on RaceDepartment. What? It's terrible. I'm not criticising the track author for that, I'm criticising the reviewers of that particular track. This is one of very few that I just deleted outright.

Compared to the other one this is a masterpiece. It looks pretty nice and it's really fun to hotlap on. After watching some onboard videos of the real track some of the dips and cambers seem really exaggerated but realistic or not, it's still very fun to drive on anyway. It also has a long layout included.

This track doesn't feel finished. The timing objects are not in the right place, hotlap start starts in the pit lane, textures are very repetitive, there's no variety in the trees, and the road surface is very bumpy. There's no preview and the map is for a different track. The AI drives through the pit lane instead of staying on the track... This doesn't seem like a conversion, it seems scratch-built or built using BTB/RTB.

While not perfect by any means, this is much better than the other version. This is a conversion from GRID Autosport and it has a lot more detail and much better textures. Performance is not great, and the AI is abyssmal. There is no map but CM can sort that out quickly. It's not great, but it's the only Jarama currently available that's worth trying out.

This is a good start. As far as racing goes it's solid. The track surface is nice and it's really fun to drive on. As for the graphics, they need some work. some track-side objects are floating and some are embedded into the ground. Lighting is a little harshly bright, and there's lots of things that need to be transparent that aren't (like backgrounds on some trees and fans)

This is the best version of the track. It's nice looking, accurate as far as videos go, and there was way more attention to detail. Grass is good, and it overall is much better than the other one. Only major flaw is that the author used the same folder name as the other version instead of tacking on initials or something to differentiate it.

Overall it looks pretty good but it's got a lot of little flaws like grass models overlapping onto the track, repetetive trees, and terrible AI.

It was hard to make up my mind if this is the best version of this track or if the ACU one is. This one overall looks better and has decent AI but it has these really distracting rolling ad-boards.

This is a really nice rendition of this track. The grass looks awesome, the textures are really nice and sharp looking, and everything just looks very realistic. There's also a great BTCC skin available for it. Unfortunately it doesn't have any of the other layouts like the Legion version. This one is my favorite.

Folder Name: croft_sp
Author: Legion
Download: Some of the fences have the wrong alpha blending mode set on them so the horizon looks pink when seen through the fence, and the hotlap start is up in the air, and drops the car facing the wrong direction, on the grass. I think part of the track near the final corner and first corner is marked as pit-surface because the pit-lane UI shows up when driving past as well. Aside from these issues this version is pretty solid. It adds a bunch of track layouts too which is always welcome. It looks based on the Terra21 version but the differences are significant enough to lead me to believe it was an older version. I'm curious to know more about it and what's different.

This is close to the best representation of Daytona I've ever seen in a game. The racing surface feels perfect, the AI is good, and all of the trackside detail is incredible, all staying at above 90FPS in VR. The helicopters move around, the sound design of the fireworks and the echoes of the engines as they go by the grandstands... perfection. One thing I was disappointed about was the lack of trackside lights at night. The big overhead lights outside the oval never turn on. Not a huge deal and not keeping this from being my favorite daytona.

This is a pretty fun track. The frame rate is good and the colors are vibrant without being harshly bright.

Project Kaido had done all they could with the rFactor conversion they were working with for the enhanced version so they went back to the drawing board and built this new version from scratch and it's spectacular. The visuals are incredible and while they did a great job fixing up that old conversion they topped themselves with this one. Track-side rocks look awesome in this one, the buildings, the road surface, and the trackside objects are all perfected in this brand new version. Definitely try this out. For how good it looks and how long it took to load (I thought something was wrong since it was taking so long) I expected the frame rate to be bad but it stayed at a solid 90 the whole time. I am super impressed with this track and it's my pick for this one.

The trees look like they come from an alien world, the grass is really ugly, the tire walls are all flat with a badly flat tirewall texture applied, there are holes all over the place, and the colors and lighting are all washed out. Not worth the time to download.

I have no idea who made this version. There is a skin available at https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/darwin-triple-crown-2019.31604/ by pepperoni ac24 that fixes the grass and a lot of visual oddities.

Despite the folder name of this track it's actually got forward and reverse layouts. The track has a huge mountain horizon that is really out of place and it also cuts off abruptly in the middle of a mountain leaving a huge gap. It definitely looks like a mistake.

This version is a codemasters conversion and it is definitely the best modern hockenheim GP track in the looks department. It feels pretty good too on the racing surface. Unfortunately it doesn't have any of the alternate layouts. I keep this one for GP, and t78 for the other layouts.

It just has so much more character than the other versions which seem really sterile. You can see the care that went into this track and it's just fantastic. Maybe if you need to race on a modern looking interlagos get the 2018 one, but otherwise, this is the way to go right here.

I understand why this track is the way it is, it's huge, it's converted from another older game, and it's optimized for speed rather than eye candy. It's unfortunately just really ugly and riddled with issues. It has a really low poly road mesh so the elevation transitions are really harsh, and the textures are just very old. The hedges at the side of the road are really harsh and the low quality spectators being so close to the track makes it easy be distracted by how bad they look. It's just not great. Then there are the holes that you can fall through if you get too close to a wall. When this track works it works and it's fun and it's easy to get past it's shortcomings, but those parts are few and far between here.

This one is titled Snaefell Mountain Course. It's a basic start but it really needs a lot more work before it's ready to release. The walls don't work, the trees are repetetive, and seems like it's pre-alpha. Plus the track is so large and the center point of the map is so far from the racing surface that everything shakes like crazy. I think this track is just a bit too big for AC's engine to handle.

This track is a beta and hasn't been updated since 2014 so it's likely abandoned. I am impressed by what's there though if the claim by the author that it's not a conversion, it's scratch made. It's from the early days and the buildings and surroundings are surprisingly realistic so if it actually is scratch made that's impressive, but there's some evidence that it's a codemasters conversion. This must have been one of the best looking tracks available back then. It does have it's issues. The walls don't have collision, there's no AI, there's no preview and the map is messed up so it's not recommended, but it is impressive given how old it is.

Everything except the blurry horizon mountains looks color corrected, and maybe it's just because I had grassFX on (really, grassFX transforms bland environments) but I really liked the way this one looks, plus the road surface is good and it's a genuinely fun track to drive.

I copied the bremgarten1954 ini file to this track and all of the lights and grassfx stuff carried over just fine and it looks awesome. This is the best version.

This is a pretty fun track. The frame rate is good and the colors are vibrant without being harshly bright.

The mountains are a bit smaller than real life, but it's not really a deal breaker. Overall a pretty good conversion from rFactor.

Some of the trees/bushes are a bit repetetive and the 3D grass could be replaced with grassfx but despite these shortcomings it's still better and more fun to drive than the Gilles version. This would be a cool track to revisit and fix up.

This is a really basic version of Laguna Seca. I'm pretty sure this came out very early in the life of Assetto Corsa and it shows.

When racing with a full grid I could only get 30ish FPS in VR, and the sand on the side of the track was completely transparent, so you could see into the void on all sides, even though I couldn't fall through it.

It comes with 4 layouts, a day and a night version of with chicane and without chicane, but in these modern times the night versions don't need to be used, you can just set the time in CM nowadays. Great AI and great night lighting.

The other versions are already great but this version is phenomenally good. It is converted from Forza Motorsport 7 and it was done very well. This is incredibly detailed, super well lit at night, great AI, great feeling on the road, and at least for me it performs well. If you don't have a machine with a lot of grunt grab the 2017 or 2019 variants above, but if you do have a good machine, do yourself a favor and get this one.

Download: There's a really nice amount of detail here. There is a weird texture right under the dunlop bridge near the start of the track but that might just be a bug in my installation or something. It seems like it could also use a grassfx config, since the 3d grass that's in there now isn't that great. Other than that stuff, it's excellent. The AI also doesn't seem to know how to drive this track, they all freak out on the long straight right where the first chicane would be. GrassFX and and an AI fix would probably make this great. Also, there's no night lighting at all, so adding that would be pretty cool too.

It's already really good but I'm sure the community is going to make it even better. It has an excellent feel to it both visually and in the driving, and it brings back a lot of memories from when I was a kid. I highly recommend this one for this particular era of Le Mans. Missing is lighting at night and grassfx but hopefully those can be added soon. This is the one to get.

This is one of the better looking Gilles tracks that I've tried. It's not great by any means, but it looks better than most. It's got some issues though. Low poly road mesh makes elevation changes really rough, the textures are all pretty low resolution, and biggest of all for me anyway is the lack of visible barriers or signs telling you where to go on roads that aren't actually the track. It's easy to get lost here, which just seems really weird. Don't spend money on this.

The grass is so much better in this version, and it overall looks a lot nicer and I really appreciate the barriers. The road mesh is still a bit bumpy on hills from it being so low-poly, but overall it's much better. There are a couple of sections where the grass is growing in the middle of the road, mostly where 2 roads join each other. Probably an easy fix in the ini. Definitely get this one.

Update: after testing, the material "RDCPZBASE01" should be added to OCCLUDING_MATERIALS to get rid of the grass in the road. The problem is worse with the M8-Retexture skin active, but it's still there to some extent (there's some gray grass poking through, just not much) without the skin active as well.

This one looks good but it has some bugs. The trees seem very dark, but everything else looks the right color. Also the spectators and the trees flash in and out when in VR, especially while turning my head. I spent about an hour messing with CSP settings, trying different versions, disabling extensions one by one to see what was causing it and the only way to make the problem go away was to just disable CSP completely. This had the side effect of making the trees look normal again. I re-enabled CSP and deleted the extension ini for this track and that made the trees look their normal color but they still flashed in and out. I tried CSP 0.1.61 (my regular version), 0.1.52, and 0.1.46 and none of those fixed the flashing trees and spectators. It's a shame too because aside from the older method of 3d grass, this track looks great.

This is what I wanted. It's a fixed version of the Terra21 version. All of the good stuff without the problems present there. Unfortunately it was named the same as the Terra21 version so it overwrites it, and I get that it's an update to it, but then CM thinks it's the original, downloads the configs for the original version, which are significantly different to the configs included with this track and then you get conflicts. It's always best to rename the track to avoid this kind of conflict. That aside, this is the best version of this particular layout of this track and the one to get.

This must be a work in progress because it's not up to ACF's standards. The track surface is really rough, the grass texture is nearly flourescent green, the trees are really repetetive, and the road texture appears to be mapped globally instead of being mapped to the road, so the lines that are supposed to follow the road just repeat over and over. It needs a lot of work.

The grass is just another flat overexposed texture. When racing the AI I got 8 laps in and then all of the AI cars disappeared and reappeared on pit lane, then went back out to the track. Not sure what's up with that.

I've heard complaints that it's too bumpy but it seems fine to me. I don't know what this was originally converted from but Terra21 did an excellent job. For me, this is the one to get.

So this is the Terra21 version with the road smoothed out a bit and a lot of details removed. I've never driven there but I've seen videos and it seems like a pretty bumpy place to me, so I'm not entirely certain why they smoothed it out. Also the lack of trackside details and the removal of the rubber on the road really makes this one look less good. For those that hate the bumpy surface of the Terra21 version I suppose this one is fine, but the loss of detail really keeps this one from being my choice.

It still has flaws, like the rumble strips don't rumble and you can just drive through tires, but all the concrete barriers work as you'd expect, all of the colors look right, and there was some attention to detail with bumpiness of the road surface on the sections of road with embedded train track. This might be the best Gilles75 conversion I've tried and if there were no alternative it would certainly be worth the pound he charges for it (if it hadn't been ripped without permission and then sold with no input from the original designer, in this case codemasters.)

This cleans up a lot of the problems with the ACU version like some weird textures on buildings that looked a bit flat, better trees, and a better road texture. This also adds lighting in the tunnel and it overall looks a lot better. It's also the first version I've tested that has a functional DRS zone. Performance is a bit lower, but it's a good tradeoff for all the extra detail.

It's an rFactor conversion. It's flaws include being overly bright, almost neon green in spots, a couple textures where the transparency is not set (like bridge railings) and obviously accuracy since it's not laser scanned. But for what it is, it's pretty good. The Kunos version exists and is usually dirt cheap, so there's no real reason to grab this anymore, but for that time before the Kunos version was available this would have been "good enough".

The road surface is bumpy to an appropriate level, and it just feels dangerous. There are several track layouts as well.

Ok, so this one is complicated. There was a 2018 version of this released by patrikpat and when it was initially released all of the grass was transparent if you were using the recommended version of Custom Shaders Patch. They released a fix (which should apply automatically with content manager if you have config auto downloads turned on, if you don't, go to the custom shaders patch settings section and download the track config), but unfortunately this fix didn't work for me.

A ton of little tiny changes to the reboot version add up to a much greater experience. This track performs a lot better, especially in VR now that everything has been optimized. Some of the trackside details have been remodeled to be more realistic, colors have been tweaked to match real life, and the skidmark groove doesn't look like it's floating above the track anymore. An excellent version of this track and my new favorite version of Algarve.

I can't actually find much bad to say about this track. It's still a bad idea to give Gilles money for his scummy tactics of stealing other people's work, but at least this isn't his usual steaming pile. One flaw is that off-track areas are not marked as invalid, so you can cut major parts of the track with no penalty.

This place looks fantastic! The grass, the textures, the trackside surroundings, the visual detail of the road surface, the trees, everything looks great. I've heard complaints that it's too bumpy but it seems fine to me. I don't know what this was originally converted from but Terra21 did an excellent job. For me, this is the one to get. I understand that some people hate the bumpy surface though.

So this is the Terra21 version with the road smoothed out a bit and a lot of details removed. I've never driven there but I've seen videos and it seems like a pretty bumpy place to me, so I'm not entirely certain why they smoothed it out. Also the lack of trackside details and the removal of the rubber on the road really makes this one look less good. For those that hate the bumpy surface of the Terra21 version I suppose this one is fine, but the loss of detail really keeps this one from being my choice.

This one overall is nicely put together but it's way too bright, trackside objects are floating around (like cranes), there are some trees that are floating, no map, the pit lane doesn't function as a pit lane, and the start finish line doesn't extend into that pitlane. A great starting point.

Another problem is that turning on grassfx makes all grass surfaces on this track transparent so you can just see down into the void.

This track is a pretty fun fictional layout. The asphalt texture is a bit blurry compared to many of the other textures. The trees are just a wall of trees in spots, which does look a bit old, but it is a conversion of an old track, so it's to be expected. The road has almost no feel to it unfortunately. Not a bad effort, just not great either. There is no AI on this track.

This is an interesting track that takes corners from existing tracks and mashes them together into a fun fictional track. It's details look pretty nice. All it needs to look outstanding is probably a grass and lighting config. This is the one to get because the rework below has too many flaws to make it worth using over this one. A good lighting/grass config added to the csp github (so it can be automatically applied with content manager) would make it perfect.

This could all have been done as a config file, but instead was released as a whole new track. I find a lot of these Assetto-FR.tk releases to be like that. The grass in this version is also flourescent green. I prefer the original.

This track, like most other Terra21 tracks is a conversion from an older game and like many Terra21 tracks this one really holds up. There are a lot of details here like the grass at the edge of the road that even many modern tracks don't do as well. Unfortunately the road mesh is pretty low-poly and bumpy. Another flaw here is that some of the track bridges have textures that are stretched too wide so their aspect ratio goes all weird.

This version is another conversion but seems to share some of the same assets, like the tirewall texture is the same. I'm not sure if this is converted from an earlier version, but it just doesn't look as detailed and the color correction is all off. It does however have a fixed road mesh. Take the road mesh from this version and put it into the terra21 version and you've got a fantastic version of Phillip Island.

Note: Combining these two tracks into a nice looking and nice driving phillip island is probably going to be my next project when I'm done with Brno 1965 unless anyone else is working on one.

It might not sound like skinning a track is a lot of work but so much stuff had to be reworked to make this 2021 F1 skinned version of the track work and it was all done masterfully. This is the new king of Algarve for AC. Definitely get this one.

I had never tried this track before and it is really fun. It's become one of my favorites after only a few laps. If you haven't tried it, it's really good. The visuals are adequate for a track converted from rfactor and the grassfx config by mike08 automatically downloads with content manager and adds some nice grass. The surroundings are a little bit low poly but that's to be expected with a conversion from rfactor. Overall, the driving experience makes up for the few visual shortcomings. Despite a reworked version being available this is the one to get.

This is another one of these reworks that I don't really think was neccessary. The other one looks fine and this one is just a bit too dark. Also the big track-bridge texture flickers at a distance in this version where it doesn't in the original. I'd just stick with the original.

This wouldn't load at first, content manager complained about the AI spline. After deleting the AI directory it loads fine for hotlapping, so there's obviously something wrong with it. Also there is no map. It is a very basic looking track with decent enough textures but nothing about the way it look stands out. The ground off-track has a really rough, low-poly look to it. Aside from that it is very fun to drive.

This one doesn't have the AI problems but yet again everything is just dark and gloomy. All of these reworks are lit as if it's an overcast day, no matter what weather is selected. As for good points the grass looks good and it really hides the visual flaws of the original. I tried the rework's AI and ext_config.ini files on the original track and this was great. Whatever is being done to the track to make it dark was undone but it kept the nice grass and the new AI makes the original work so... it's complicated but I recommend the hybrid approach with this one.

This is a conversion of an old Kunos track and it's very fun to drive. It looks decent, and that's helped by a decent grass CSP config file that's automatically downloaded if you have that feature enabled in content manager. The only flaws I could find are a few of the adboard textures are a bit stretched looking and the hotlap start is up in the air. There are a few skins available that alleviate those issues (aside from the hotlap start of course). This is the version I'd go for.

This is the only version of this track that is available that isn't a codemasters conversion. It was a scratch-made mod track for Rfactor, then ported to rfactor 2, then converted to AC. It isn't as detailed in it's surroundings as the codemasters derived versioins so visually it isn't as nice, and the road surface is bumpy in a low-poly kind of way. The one advantage this one has is that it has more track variants that none of the rest have (including the new outer ring variant that F1 will be using this season). There's no glaring problems with it, but it's just not as nice as Bahrain 2020 by @jk0011/patrikpat.

This version is really good. I think it's a conversion from rFactor 2 (He also did a shift conversion, so I'm not sure if this is rF2 or Shift to be honest), and aside from the Kunos banners all over the start of the track it looks really good, all while maintaining a great frame rate. I really like this version.

There are a couple of skin packs for this track by Fred Basset that get rid of the Kunos banners and dress things up a bit

Trackside details are perfect, the AI is decent, lighting is spot on, and since it's a conversion from Forza Motorsport 7, the attention to detail is incredible. There's lots of skins available for it, and it comes with 3 track variants. The only complaint I have at all is that it doesn't maintain a full 90FPS (important for VR) for the whole lap, but it does through most of it. Despite that, this is a great version. It was definitely the best version until reboot team's ACC conversion.

This track began it's life in ACC and then was converted to rFactor 2 and then carried over to AC. This conversion is nicely done, but there's a couple issues, mainly with the road. There's almost no feel to it, it's so smooth. And even the texture for the road is smooth, like you're driving on polished stone. No night lighting either, unfortunately.

This is a great track presented extremely poorly. The textures look old, the poly count is low, and it's got flickering trees all over the place. This is an artifact created by a lazy unoptimized conversion. There are duplicate faces for all of the trees and that's what causes this behavior. It's an easy fix but Gilles chose not to do it and then put the track up for sale. The wrong blending mode is also set to things that are supposed to be transparent, so towers end up looking really psychedelic in a "I can't believe i paid money for this" kind of way. It also has no CSP features like lights and grass. Skip this.

Unfortunately this is exactly the same as the Gilles version except it has a grassfx implementation that needs more work. I think instead of basing a rework on the Gilles version it might be better to start over by converting the original track all over again, and instead of doing it the way Gilles did, do it right. As it stands I can't really recommend either version. There's a great track in here waiting to come out.

Overall it looks pretty good but it's got a lot of little flaws like grass models overlapping onto the track, repetetive trees, and terrible AI.

Unfortunately the road texture is still really bad and the trees have that same shadow casting issue which just looks bad. You can still drive through the hay bales. This track is really cool and I'm a sucker for vintage tracks and this one deserves better.

This one is pretty rough around the edges. Buildings are floating above the ground, the landscape is pretty barren, the textures are ugly, and there's no distant background scenery so it sort of looks like the track and it's immediate surroundings are just floating in a void. It's ok, but not really anything to write home about.

This is an improvement. Many of the flaws are still there but the bad grass texture is now hidden by the GrassFX, the trees look nicer, and the track has undergone a major color correction so things just look more natural.

This one blows the other two out of the water. It's very well done and highly detailed. It has night lighting, nicer grass, better buildings, distant surroundings, the works. There are also 2 additional short variants of the track. The only problem is that I don't know who to give credit to. This popped up on RaceDepartment for a short time and I happened to grab it while it was still up there but didn't remember who made it, then it was quickly taken down. It is a conversion from rfactor2, but that's pretty much all I have to go on.

This version of the track is the best looking of the bunch. It doesn't have the issues with the crowd that the other ones have and the trackside objects are all a bit more detailed. Barriers and cones can be knocked around, and overall it looks like a lot of care and work went into this.

So this one is basic and with a version number of 0.6 not finished. There's lots of floating trackside objects, the colors are washed out, the textures are blurry, but it's one saving grace is that the trees look better than any of the other "with chicane" versions. This can easily be skipped.

The grass looks great, the road has a great bumpy feel (not bad bumpy, realistic bumpy) and so many little touches visually and performance-wise make this the best of the bunch.

This one looks good but it has some bugs. The trees seem very dark, but everything else looks the right color. Also the spectators and the trees flash in and out when in VR, especially while turning my head. I spent about an hour messing with CSP settings, trying different versions, disabling extensions one by one to see what was causing it and the only way to make the problem go away was to just disable CSP completely. This had the side effect of making the trees look normal again. I re-enabled CSP and deleted the extension ini for this track and that made the trees look their normal color but they still flashed in and out. I tried CSP 0.1.61 (my regular version), 0.1.52, and 0.1.46 and none of those fixed the flashing trees and spectators. It's a shame too because aside from the older method of 3d grass, this track looks great.

This one looks a lot better, the brightness is toned way down, it has grassfx (but no lighting) and the red glow is gone at night. The pit lane doesn't actually function as a pit-lane though. The trees also need to have their materials tweaked to not reflect light so much, the way the shadows cast on themselves they look flat (they are, like most trees on tracks). There's some "normals" thing you can do to them to make them look good, but it wasn't done here. Despite these issues, this is the best looking version. Fixing the pit lane here and the trees would make it as good as it can be.

The track has a line of white gravel going down the side of the track right next to the grass, but you know what's here? white grass. White grass that is long enough that I'm sure its harboring 1000 of the lowest poly snakes you've ever seen. Don't buy. The fact that either author thought their work was worthing charging for here is mindboggling.

So this is the Terra21 version with the road smoothed out a bit and a lot of details removed. I've never driven there but I've seen videos and it seems like a pretty bumpy place to me, so I'm not entirely certain why they smoothed it out. Also the lack of trackside details and the removal of the rubber on the road really makes this one look less good.

This is another excellent overhaul by @Zwiss. This takes the NAGP smoothed version and puts all the details back from the other one, and then some. Performance is improved, lighting is improved, the grass looks perfect. Definitely grab this one, it's the new king of Mid Ohio.

I think this is just the NAGP version with some different skins. They look nice, but there's no grassfx or anything. I think it's a work in progress. Unfortunately some things that were overlooked in the NAGP version are still overlooked here. a few curbs don't have rumble, etc.

This is a rework of the @Zwiss version billing itself as an update, but I don't know if this version is actually "blessed" as an official release by zwiss so I'm treating it as a separate track. It's really similar to the zwiss version but the grass is a lot longer and the lighting is a little bit brighter. Personally I prefer the shorter grass from the zwiss 2.0 version but both versions are quite nice looking.

This is a great track. Looks really nice. This is a conversion from rfactor but a lot of work has gone into making it look more modern. Great colors and nice detail. The grassfx config looks great too. It really feels like an actual place. Download this for sure.

This is bad. Maybe it's the source material that was so bad, but when the @shi version is available there's no reason to even try this. It looks like a PS1 game. There's so much that could have been done to modernize it for AC but it looks like all that was done is adding grassfx.

This is a scratch made track for AC from 2016 and while it's solid and looks fine, there are elements of the track that look a bit dated now, understandably, since that was 5 years ago. This is a fun version of the track, but there are newer/better ones available.

This is yet another rework of the foyol version with a bunch of extra trackside objects, helicopters, flags, better trees, and a lightened asphalt texture. Of all of the versions based on Foyol's track, this one is the best, but it just doesn't match the quality of the reboot team ACC conversion.

This one is a codemasters conversion so it's got a lot of detail in it. That being said, textures are pretty basic here and the trees are not that nice looking. Overall, it's a good version of the track but there's room for improvement.

This one has slightly less detail than the ACU version, and blockier, dirtier looking textures. It's main downfall is an extemely bumpy road due to a low poly road mesh so it's a bit too bumpy for my tastes.

I think this must have been one of Mitja Bonca's earlier track conversions because it does not have the attention to detail I've come to expect from his tracks. This one has a very low poly road mesh and it's quite bumpy. some textures are stretched to the wrong aspect ratio and the trees look downright ugly. It's not terrible and I imagine some of the sacrifices in quality were to keep performance reasonable, but it just isn't a very good version.

This is (I think) ACU's version with a fresh coat of paint. This cleans up a lot of the problems with the ACU version like some weird textures on buildings that looked a bit flat, better trees, and a better road texture. This also adds lighting in the tunnel and it overall looks a lot better. It's also the first version I've tested that has a functional DRS zone. Performance is a bit lower, but it's a good tradeoff for all the extra detail.

This one is the same as the 2017 version with updated sponsors and much better performance. It's a beautiful version and before the 2021 version came out it's the one I preferred. The lighting ini for the 2017 version mostly translates over (might need a few tweaks) by just copying it to monaco_2019.ini.

I'll start this off by saying that since this is more than just a skin and it's a track rework that I really wish this had been renamed to "monaco_2021" or something like that, especially when it's release forum post encourages deleting the old track. CSP/CM config and skin conflicts could easily be resolved by just releasing it under a different name. All that being said, this is a fantastic continuation of what was built for the 2019 version. It feels real and natural, the track is appropriately bumpy, and the updated sponsors really provide a lot of immersion. I like this one the best.

Not much to nit-pick here. It's not bad, it's not great. The textures could be more vibrant, everything seems a bit muted, but the road surface is fine, and this version is overall inoffensive.

This is a surprising version of this track. It was comissioned by a company that provides professional level sim racing equipment to real life racing teams and I think it was released as a way to promote their store. They claim that two years of effort went into building the track. Unfortunately it's a really weak conversion. Bad textures, lots of weird graphical artifacts like things flickering in the distance (z-fighting) and it's just not great. One advantage it does have over the other versions is all of the track variants. But that's something the general AC modding community can add to the rest of the versions available as well. This track was actually for sale for a while, but now it appears on their shop with a price of $0. It's not really worth the download even at that price.

This is converted from the same source as the rest and it's exactly what I expected. A minimal conversion with a generic grass config. Colors are muted except the mountain surroundings which are cartoonishly bright, and just a lack of care and attention to detail all around. Skip this.

This is an older track so obviously it's going to have a few visual issues. The trees look otherworldy in spots, but overall the surroundings look pretty good. It's incredibly bright and washed out so I had to use the sol config to fix the exposure and that made it look mostly normal. There's no grassfx and several old looking textures, but this track is really brought down by it's unfortunately harsh road mesh. Driving up and down hills feels like driving up a staircase. And you'll feel that a lot on a hilly track like this.

Since this was released with a different name, I'm reviewing it as a different track, but really, it's a continuation of the excellent work from the 2019 version, just updated to reflect the new sponsors and new asphalt. It's one of the best mod tracks available for AC today. Just like the 2019 version everything looks natural and real. Definitely get this one.

The pit lane is fixed in this version. The grass is much much worse. It's flourescent green. Like radioactive green. The trees are also shaded wrong which emphasizes the nature of them being flat cardboard cutout trees. I can't really recommend either version.

This appears to be a continuation of the work that was done by Waterworld-BE. Unfortunately it's pretty much the same, but this time with more ugly trees and a few trackside objects.

This is the best of the bunch here. It's a conversion from GTR2 and it has the hallmarks of an old track, but it does have the advantage of looking like a real natural place for the most part. Where this one really stands out though is how fun it is to drive. The road surface is more realistically bumpy in the right places where the other two are bumpy in all the wrong and unfun places. Definitely get this one.

The trees are black again. There is a grass pyramid at one of the corners. There are sideways floating bushes alongside the track that disappear if you look at them. I'd say it's a bad acid trip of an AC mod but it's too boring for that description.

I have no idea where I got this from, so sorry for the lack of a download link. It's a pretty solid conversion of an old netKar Pro track. It's fun to drive, and looks nice for an older track. It is pretty over-exposed so you'll need to turn that down in the Sol settings. Lots of detail for the time on the side of the track.

It not being finished yet means I'm not really going to review it yet, but I did want to draw attention to it since it's a promising new version of this track.
