Here is a new update to give you results of the very latest features I added to the tool.

This time, it brings preview improvements at sector design time with a realtime preview before sectors were created and preview improvements when you will want to check your final track through a one lap run, thanks to new complete controls over the way you can pause, view and review your lap.

Moreover, this version also inforce track stability thanks to some new command checks, warning and explicit notes on what's precisely wrong.
Of course, a new version can't come without some bugfixes and other tiny things, like some simple tools to expose or cover parts of the track to or from rain fall. A nice touch to your futur tracks with tunnels for sure ;)

Have a nice time with this new version.

Thanks everyone, once again too ;)

@Willb: no, sorry, the to-do list increase day after day, so I wasn't able to add everything in this version. Else you would still wait for a new version in a year :)
