Tahitian GP Track - [UPDATE RELEASED 23/5/15] - see first post! :)

Posted by salvasirignano 
I have spent the last 13 years religiously playing F1 97 on the Playstation, which contains a remarkable bonus track, Sunob, in the shape of an F1 car, and I wanted to bring it to my favourite sim, GP4. :)
I was extremely fortunate to visit the beautiful islands of Tahiti and Moorea whilst travelling around the world recently, and so here it is below, Sunob, set on a fictional French Polynesian Island, in GP4.

Yay it's finally done! This will be the last release, I think I am happy enough with the track to leave it alone now. ;)
In this version (v2.0) are many improved textures (tarmac, trees, kerbs, lagoon...), a few shadows, modified track cameras and reworked terrain.

Some pictures below.......















And a slightly outdated video of the old circuit....

Very crazy!!!
Excelent work.
Only a penalty, the start is a sequence of curves!!??
One suggestion: could close more cameras in the car with his approach ....

Muito louco!!!
Excelente trabalho.
Só um penalty, a largada é numa sequência de curvas!!!???
Uma sugestão: as câmeras poderiam fechar mais no carro com sua aproximação....

Thanks :)
Well I think I have probably got the AI as good as I can, there isn't anywhere where they are really too slow or fast. Maybe a couple of tenths in split 1 perhaps.. They pit without problems, although they slow on-line for the entry so you need to be a tad cautious if on their gearbox ;)

Thanks for your suggestion, I may move a couple of the cameras around a bit. It's just a lot of the values are unknown regards the cameras, and normally the cameras zoom right on to the car as it passes the camera's sector, meaning you don't see much of the track at all, so I have tried to change that a bit....

I think what it definately needs are some spectators/grandstands. Looks great fun though, slightly reminds me of John Edwards Castries for GP2 all those years ago.
