A few thoughts about the track I'm testing.


[FIRST I WANNA SAY THAT I WAS REQUESTED TO NOT GIVE OUT THE TRACK, SO PLEASE DON'T ASK]

If you paid any attention to the Orange County Speedway topic, you would know that I'm beta testing the track for ACTannouncer. I had a couple thoughts and thought I'd share them, hopefully it's ok with ACTannouncer.

Well, first off, the track is great. I race there in real life, and it feels just like it should. My cousin, who raced there in the 90's, also said it felt great. The AI cars are tough around 90% (mainly cause my wheel sucks XD) and the racing is hard. I spent 10 laps side by side with the same guy battling for 3rd. Crossed the line at the checkered and got 3rd by .001!

The racing is fun, especially with the LMPv2 mod and the Cup90 mod. The pits are configurated well also.

The AI cars are fun to race, but they run a line that's about a groove too high. If I'm faster than someone going into a turn, I can divebomb the inside and be clear of them before the apex.


I hope the track owner is OK with me posting this, if not I'll take it down or request it to be removed.

Thanks for reading!

Tip to the wise, unless the Owner says its ok with you posting about it in public, then listen. Or, ask what you can and cant do, thats what Me and Amtronic did.

I sent him details and suggestions, like add tractors in the corners for more realism, since the real life track would have them.

Also told his details about the AI line, and how the cars reacted under caution.

All in All, Amtronic did an Excellent job on the track (Which IS available) and I hope he gets another great track in the works. On the old Forums, I saw a preview for Imola, so fingers are crossed.

But unless ACT says keep it in PM's, then you should be good.

I figured it was no big deal considering that everyone already knew it was in production.

The track he is talking about as being available is ZandvoortDTM, a new track. The Zandvoort on the tracks list is the GPL conversion. Steve hasn't updated the list to include the new track link.
