North Wilkesboro 1996 Day & Night


Greetings all!

I've just about put the finishing touches on an edit of your Wilkes06 tracks to try and reflect the speedway as it was when it closed down after the 1996 Tyson Holly Farms 400 and of course I would like the track crew's permission to release this to the public.

Here's several shots of the edits; a day track and a night track: http://s1052.photobucket.com/user/thunder98210/library/North%20Wilkesboro%201996%20Day%20and%20Night

Re: North Wilkesboro 1996 Day & Night


I've been watching with great interest all of your "updates" of the old Winston Cup tracks over at SRD. I'm thrilled that someone has taken on these "restorations" for us nostalgia freaks who loved the good 'ol days of NASCAR and is making these classic tracks look more graphically pleasing. Your sceenies of North Wilksboro 1996 look great!

Many of the guys who worked on the North Wilkesboro 2006 track are really no longer involved in NR2003 anymore (Steve, Justin, Scott and Ray) and haven't been for a long time. The only ones of that group who are still active are BOWTIE and me. Steve still comes around here every once in awhile (I see he posted a reply in the forums here just yesterday).

So knowing those guys as I do, I'm going to make an "executive decision" and give you our full blessing to do your thing and release the track. The only thing I would ask is that you acknowledge all of the guys in your credits/readme for their work on the original build. emoticon

Thunder,

I am sorry that I didn't see your PM here. I've visited several times since you sent it in early January. I just don't expect to get PMs so don't see them here, and I don't check that old email address much anymore.

I have no problem with JR giving you permission to post your conversion; he was a contributor to the creation.

I truly appreciate you asking before you did it.

However, I must say, I'm not impressed by your conversion, based on your screenshots; i.e. barrels don't float.

Nevertheless I support your efforts to learn to do tracks, and maybe this will stimulate you to do even more to develop tracks for this old game.

I can only encourage you to take time to appreciate detail. Detail is immersion. A new billboard in T3 and a new wall banner doesn't make it better (i.e. Las Vegas 2003, Las Vegas 2004, Las Vegas 2005, etc).

Biggest flaw....... where is the Junior Johnson Grandstand in T3? I took it out of Wilkes 2006 because it was overgrown with trees and rotted away in the 2000s before Wilkes reopened for its short respite. But, in 96........ that was a big part of Wilkes.

Detail....... that is what makes a track good. Maybe someday you'll want to not just edit, but create. Keep up the work. Learn to make it really good.

oh and one other thing..... not so minor..... your download has NO readme, which even goes against JR's approval

Now there was no readme in the original download. Didn't need to be one. The download on this site credited all:

by Justin9, steveb73, sticky22, raybee1970, BOWTIE and JR Franklin
what wilkes might be if they just painted it up, patched the cracks, and opened the doors



Detail......... detail. Respect
