It's been some time..
Finally I've finished my project and it's time for release.

This is an alternative version of Suzuka. I didn't aim to create historically or geographically accurate track, but used my personal taste as base instead.

.DAT included is made by Marianodc. I've not touched it.

Thanks to everyone who contributed and helped in bugfixing.
Hope you'll like it!

Yes, forgot to mention that it's just a visual update, built over the original version.
I was never able to fix the missing shadows but if someone knows how to fix it, it'd be appreciated!

@Silver:
Did you recrate the track .bin file? The white border line might disappear when you create a bin file with option 'cover border line (as for Monaco)'.
About shadows: If you recreated the track parts with the HD feature you have to create a new .col file.

Yes I did, white line was removed on purpose. If people miss them you can get them back recreating .bin files from .dat and choosing not to cover sidelines. Thickline texture is number 105.

I do not recall creating new parts using HD feature? But I'll have a look.

Fix uploaded. See 1st post.

Shadows are now working. There's also an option to get white lines back if you want to! (:

Cheers.

@SkaaningeN
No I've not removed any stands so don't know about that..

Track has some nice looking textures Niko, but are they not too big? Cos the wad size is huge, 147 MB.

What's your motivation that the track has no crowd? I have some nice looking crowd textures, made by TTM, if you're interested.

Could you explain to me how to create texures where two different types of material are overlappig each other, for an example a verge texture with a small stripe of gravel?


Thanks

I know it's a bit large, but imo it's irrelevant because I can run it without problems with my fairly medium spec PC.

I'm a kind of person who always aims to perfection and therefore I'm just trying to get the best quality out of what's possible.

In addition I have a really difficult taste, and there's no exception to that with GP4. Why I removed the crowds (and sidelines)? Because I hate the way GP4 handles them and imo they just look horrible. At first the track was not going to have any adverts either, but I gave up with that. I aimed for a rusty, abandoned style and feel. That's why there are no crowds. I also removed dozens of low-quality objects from the track.

All my work I've done (mostly unreleased) is aimed for a minor audience and not for the majority.

Cheers.
