    New Hampshire, which was 1.07miles before pd added phantom miles to the front stretch, biggest difference track wise from Milwalkee is New Hampshire is wider and does not have curbing in the inside line.

    99% accurate shape and size of the Pocono Raceway. Will add eye candy and curbs tomorrow, didn't even use a reference image so I'm pretty satisfied. Opinions?

    Long Pond Straight looks a little bit long which makes the short chute appear too short. The tunnel turn looks a touch too tight as well. Is there a way you can make the angle for turn 1 somewhat more acute? I wonder if it may throw off the perfect 2.5 miles you have right now though?

    I don't know how difficult it is to make these tracks, so I don't mean to sound critical. :guilty:

    The 1% doesn't even bother me because it's so accurate![​IMG]

    I've been playing around with it. I can try some more but I'm going to copy it because the picture above is the best I've gotten it so far.

    Those phantom miles are the back half of the S/F line, just look on the counter when you start new track, it shows half the length of the straight, when you connect the circuit, it adds the other half. ;)

    I was hoping for that too. Regardless of that, I'll be making a NASCAR Home Tracks series, so stuff like Bowman Grey, Langley, so on. Wish there was dirt regardless.. If anyone's interested though, Hopefully you can get them that small. Published any yet Nas?

    As of now the shortest I've been able to get is about .9 miles, sadly. Hopefully they give us a karting theme so we can make the half and quarter miles.

    Slightly more to scale, but slightly more distorted.

    EDIT

    It's off scale, but it's the right shape, Phoenix international Raceway Infield Road Course.

    Hey, how do I get an overlay on? I've tried and tried, but nothing. I'm using it on PC if that helps any.

    I made a Gateway today. :D

    It needs some work though... it is actually fairly easy to get that track to scale though.

    Probably not the best to use those generic outlines as they are very rarely accurate enough to do much with

    Someone should do the old pocono raceway.

    Edit, Someone beat me to the punch.

    I eyeballed it before I looked at it, that's what I got. I just pulled up the outline. If I wanted to really use it I would go on Google Earth.

    Hello @nascarfan1400 !

    Would you be interested in making Test Course found in Gran Turismo 1 and 2? I wonder how authentic can be made, with all the forest trees and highly banked corners.

    I apologize for sending a request, but for now you seem to be the only Oval-licensed course creator. :)

    Ah, in that case I'll do extensive search around this threads. Can't wait to see video of it in action, so far people only post photos. :)

    Thanks for notification!

    26ft wide seems small. :odd:

    And how the hell did you do that without an image?!
