!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please set your 'race rules' to following:

-Race laps: 2
-Flag rules: NONE- (If you wish to run the wrong way)
-Start type: STANDING

-Timing works properly only in RACE-mode, so do not try to attemp doing "official"
time run in any other mode.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



CHANGELOG:

v3.6 (by BLeeK)
-There's now an extended pits out the back of the service station & enough pits to
fit 100cars (50 teams of 2)
-After 3previous versions the cops have worked out where we're racing & are stationed
on just about every intersection you'll need,
so those girl's blouses now have some form of a 'brake marker'.
-There's now 6routes, if you don't know where to go either take a look at the JPEG's
Ive included or press 'I' &kick back & watch where the AI takes you.
-For running point-to-point tracks change rF setting from laps to time & set for
sub-10minutes, timing only works in actual race.

Sorry to everyone for taking so long on this, I seriously underestimated the time it
would take to make these AIW's in BTB!
I have not managed to cure any loading issues from previous v2.0, but the main reason
for the delay is disappearing terrain/roads...
YES, I KNOW the usual reasons & cures, but none of them have helped.
When I eventually find a cure there WILL be a v4 along with an update pack for those
that have this version.
If you know of a WORKING cure, then please step up & have a crack at it ;)
If you encounter any other troubles then hit the forums for tips is all I can suggest.

v2:
-AIW! These computer opponents will take the river route and later through the
Johnstone town.



MAIN FEATURES:

1. 140km's of open roads (110km of tarmac, 18km gravel, 12km special)

2. 150 meters of road elevation change.

3. Possibility to choose different routes.

4. Hillclimb-style point to point race with working timing.

5. Some what realistic atmosphere. This is not arcade track.

6. Speed limit: 55 (not that it cannot be broken... ;)

7. WARNING: Some cars might get stuck in sand or fields.
Be warned! Mostly those Europeans with their "fancy"
sports cars... ;)

8. Remember to enable damage, because it is fun to crash here.



KNOWN ISSUES:


1. Performance. This track is HUGE and fairly heavy graphics wise,
should work with normal gaming PC's.

2. Flickering problem. Due the limits of rFactor graphics engine,
there is severe flickering with shadows.
So almost all shadows are disabled. Don't worry, nothings wrong with your computer.

3. Graphic bugs in mirrors.

4. Yellow flag and 'wrong way' indicators flashing. But if you followed rule settings
instructions, it doesn't matter.

5. There are NO PITS, so fill up before you go if you want to go Sunday driving.

6. There might occur some scoring issues, hope not.
Accelerated time ("finish session") doesn't work very realiable.

7. And all the rest I am not aware of.



TROUBLESHOOT:

If you are having FPS issues, you can help that little bit:
Open: "JohnstoneCounty.scn"
Change: "ClipPlanes=(0.01, 150000.0)" to "ClipPlanes=(0.01, 2000.0)"
This limits the track distance drawn by computer, but makes flickering worse.
(online compatibility may be affected)


THANKS TO:

1. Rural Australia XPack, ennisfargis (For the cows, rocks, vegetation and other
stuff!)
2. Longford 67 Houses XPack, Hompe, Woochoo, Gustaf Reutersward
(Those houses helped me a lot to make the town alive!)
3. Zaxxon's guardrail XPack (Great!)
4. Textures Janvier XPack, PLP (Always great help!)
5. Hompe, for Diner building
6. Pangaea, for helping to solve various challenges!
7. Piddy, for BTB (Need to say how great tool this is?)
8. Neil Faichney, for skybox arrangement!
9. KittX for new beautiful skies!

10. AIW bent by BLeeK -thank you mate!

10.1(LoL) A big thank you goes to Johannes for allowing me access to his original
BTB build files.
And a HUGE thank you goes to legendsatlunch for taking this noob under his
hairy wing & giving all that cool advice!
Thanks mate :)
Thanks too to all those that tested the tracks at various stages & actually
gave some feedback too...

the red one is a 1933 Ford and i got it from Production GT -mod (or Production Cars), hard to find anywhere these days, maybe impossible. Those screenshots are taken by me. 57' Bel Air is part of Shit Street -mod and the car is made by smallblockhero. Just google rFactor shift street mod and chevy 57/smallblockhero

Let me correct myself, game gives a penalty if one drives full speed past those chicanes on the back straight. So the problem seems to be with the game itself and how it interprets situations as cutting.

Well, I've tried everything and follow all instructions but it still crashes while loading, all versions. I've read somewhere that disabling off road areas to drive, on one of the track files, fixed the loading problem and made it fast. Any help to do this, please?


i still think it's the Hat file, that causes your problem. I've played with Win XP, win 7 32bit and win 7 64bit and now i'm back to xp again. This track always works..no need to clean install, just copy Locations and userdata folders over new install of rFactor :/
