How long to create basic tracks?
« on: November 27, 2017, 10:43:50 AM »
Hello, new to this forum.

Iíve read quite a bit on here while looking for UK tracks like Llandow, GYG, Clay Pigeon etc and realised that iíll probably be waiting around forever to see these tracks appear in the download database so now Im toying with the idea of getting into track creation.

Hereís the thing tho, Iím not bothered about making tracks as realistic as possible when it comes to anything bar the layout itself. I wouldnít want to spend any time making pits, Marshall posts, trees, walls etc and probably wouldnít care about how accurate kerbs are either.

I appreciate that tracks can take months to build but my question is how long does it take to create just a flat track with no elevation changes that is accurate in layout and length to the real life thing?

Also how much am I likely to spend on software needed to achieve this?

Thanks

about 100 bugs on software:
Bobs Track Builder
3DSimed

If you are in rythm you could do that in 1-2 hours ready to run in game!

assuming you have a modicum of 3d modeling experience you could have a track layout no kerbs no grass with a texture in probably 15 minutes tops if theres no elevation from there youre looking at an exponential  increase in time required to add every level of detail
