Piboso, please, how can I adjust the camera limits? I see green and red balls on track, but camera works out of those limits...

How does the Y rotation works? If i could limit camera rotation, I should finish the track today...

Y rotation is only used for "Fixed" cameras.
"Normal" cameras can only point 90 degrees to the left and to the right from default direction.
Limits start at the green ball and end with the red one. Please make sure you haven't inverted them.

Thank you, now I understand why is not working ;)

How can we edit sky and background (the horizon) files?

Is there a way to do semi-transparent surfaces (like grey plexi glass)?

It is possible, using alpha channel ( black is transparent, white is opaque ).
The TGA must then be saved as 32 bits.

I read about how to crate them some time ago, will try to find this again :)

Edit: Sorry, no go... I thought there is a way to convert rFactors sky.mas to edf with MASUtility, but output is just a skybox gmt...

Create a sky-dome with triangles facing inside.
Export it with 3dsmax plugin as "Mesh" ( EDF file ).

Aritz

Lol, I have it (almost!), I can use my own sky but this tutorial I found is for double face capable games :P The problem is "with triangles facing inside"... my sky has the triangles facing outside :D

The tutorial is just perfect, but we have to learn how to paint it from inside :p

I used the rfactor sky.mas file. Now I have to change those bad textures and put the real ones :)

@Piboso:

If we call to kerbs TRKKERB01 etc, they loose grip comparing to TRKASPH01 ? How much? I feel them very low "grippy"

Can we call them TRKASPH..? I know we will loose this particular sound when we pass trough them but I really want more grip, like real track kerbs have :)

Kerbs have the same grip of asphalt B.
