Track creation Tutorials
« on: June 29, 2016, 07:15:02 PM »
I will upload several Bobs Track Builder Tutorials here!

#1 about making the first steps

#2 about making kerbs

3DSimED:

Conversion Tutorial #1

3DSMax:

Conversion Tutorial #2

Series of a full track tutorial:

3DS Max Track Tutorial #1: Creating the track centerline

3DS Max Track Tutorial #2: Creating the track mesh

3DS Max Track Tutorial #3: Preparing kerbs

3DS Max Track Tutorial #4: Creating kerbs

3DS Max Track Tutorial #5: Merging kerb and terrain

3DS Max Track Tutorial #6: Creating terrain



General workflow:

1. get data:
-Get pictures from google or visit the track, anything you can get is helpful
-make sure you use a proper google earth picture to create the track, take a look at my first BTB tutorial for that

2. make the base track

3. make additional roads

4. make the terrain

5. make the kerbs

6. place walls, fences and stuff

7. place the trees

-> convert to Max

8. place other objects like buildings

9. improve the track and the textures

10. export to Kartracing Pro

Excellent! I already learned many things! Thank you for taking the time to make these videos. Eagerly waiting for more  :D

Due to some brain fart, in BTB I've used the "Track surface properties" to adjust the width of the track. I need to go through them and somehow try to undo the damage and use the "width of the track" button instead.

Also good that I saw the kerb video now, so I didn't use too much time with the old methods :).
