    Guys,

    After watching the Coca-Cola 600 I couldn't help but notice a few cool graphic things that caught my eye. One was the fact that the graphics for the start finish line was really cool this year and the other being that the All Star Race grass logo no longer shows the event date. Which is nice for in the game, it keeps you from having to change the mip every year.

    That being said both Ian's (Smiffden) Charlotte and Shane's (Revamped Reloaded) Charlotte are the two tracks I run the most so, I reworked the start finish line mips for both tracks along with the All Star Grass mip. The one for RR was easy in the fact that the start / finish line artwork is all on one mip and allows you to expand it out a bit. The Smiffden in broken into 3 mips and took a little more work to get done but I was able to work it out without having get Sean into Sandbox. I love both tracks and saw no reason for Sean and I to start doing any additional work because other then the start finish line and maybe a few billboards the track hasn't changed in the last few years. So, I'm not going go beyond the one grass and sf line mips.

    I'm posting a few real track shots below and some game shots. Let me know if you would like FSE to post the files just to drop in the track folder. This would NOT be a full track download just the start finish line mips and All Star Grass logo. I'm still doing a few touch ups but getting close..

    Cheers,
    Freddy

    I've been able to get some shading done since the last post on the s/f line for the Smiffden Charlotte so it now matches the rest of the asphalt logos but still have a few more things to do before release.

    We are currently working to get all three versions of Kansas released this month so that is the top priority, once that is done I will have some time to finish up Charlotte.

    Thanks for asking... It shouldn't be to much longer.

    Cheers,

    Charlotte Update

    Guys,

    If you were wondering what happen to the start / finish line patch I was working on for Charlotte, well a few things happened along the way. One: the Kansas updates took longer then expected. Two: I wasn't happy with just updating the S/F line. With that said, I've created a texture template for the billboards so the new billboards will match the existing that didn't need replaced. This has taken some time to match what Shane had done with the original track; I think I have matched them up close to the base texture. :). I still have the turn one and two to finish up before release but I'm moving right along. I will also have to covert them to night effects once I have the day versions done. The good part of this is they will work in Ian's or Shane's version of the track.

    Below are a few pics showing the 2014 billboard updates in turn three and four including the new Charlotte Hall of Fame, Race Hub, History Channel, Bad Boy, ZMax and few others as well.

    Cheers,
    Freddy

    No promises on that one, it will take a lot of work to make the grass logo since there is none to be found in high res with the proper back ground. I would have to build it from scratch, I will see what I can do. ;)

    If I do find the time bud it will only be the grass logo since the race has not been run yet and I will have to base it off last years race. If you use the basic start finish line that is currently in the 600 track it will work fine for the BOA 500 race. :)

    Night Effects

    Guys,

    Need some input on what billboard night effects I'm going with on Charlotte

    (A) is the original effects used in the RR track.
    (B) is the FSE effects used in tracks like Texas Night and Bristol Night.

    I like both so not sure which version I want to go with.. so thought I would get some feedback from you guys. Below are the old billboards ones in RR track now and the one I added effects to in Smiffsden track last year. see below.

    Thanks,
    Freddy
