I would really like to start building tracks on krp and I can't figure out which software will be the best. So which software should I be buying to create the best tracks on krp?

Bobs track builder is the easiest to learn ( Race Track Builder is basically BTB V2.0 but its kind of shit )

3ds Max 2010 ( If you can even find the download for it anymore ) because you can get tools to import rFactor tracks ( BTB exports to rFactor ) and then you have the export to .EDF tool ( edf is the format of the models for KRP ).

There is a FBX to EDF converter for the newer 3ds max programs but its a bit crap, it just crashes, you can leave it for as long as you want and 9/10 times it crashes.

how did you learn how to use bob's track builder, Cory?

A friend taught me the basics of how to lay down a track and then I self taught from there
( I would literally have months worth of hours in BTB )

Absolutely correct Cory.

A few tutorials exist for BTB and 3Ds max, I self-taught BTB, too. It is quite simple when you understood its workflow, everyone here is happy to help you on that :)
