Title: Kraken Berg Hare Scramble (aka Erzberg) - Released 07/12/2020
Post by: Resolute Kraken on February 27, 2020, 09:45:32 PM
Kraken Berg Hare Scramble (aka Erzberg)

Welcome to the Kraken Berg!  I love the Erzbergrodeo and other hard enduro type events.  I took it into my own hands to make an enduro track instead of waiting on one of the big gaming companies or some other modder to do it for me.  This track took me just over 7 months to complete.  I would estimate that I worked, on average, about 30 hours per week on it over that time - so it was pretty much like a second job for me.  While MX Bikes doesn't have perfect physics for hard enduro, and there are still some bugs in the game, I think that this is a great start and it will get even better. If you guys like this - let Piboso know so we can get more enhancements to the engine to support these large maps and enduro type riding.

Thanks again for trying out the Kraken Berg.  Please be sure to read all of the information below.

Current Status and TODO:
- Released

About:
- Course based on the 2019 edition.  Contains all checkpoints other than the one were they go out to the ski resort - that was too far out of the map boundaries to increase the map size.
- 3.6 km x 3.6 km
- 1300 meters elevation change
- Most of the course is very close to 1:1 scale.  I was working from old satellite data so not everything is perfect and there are some areas that aren't as steep or long as the real location.
- final course is over 40 km long
- 4K height-map
- Initial height-map work done in World Creator 2
- Detailed work done in L3DT
- Objects done in Blender. Object texturing done with Substance Painter and Photoshop

Riding Tips:

Known Issues:

PLEASE READ:
You may not have a good enough system to run this map - I do not apologize.  So don't complain if you can't run it - save some money and upgrade your system.  Or complain to PiBoSo to add some more features such as LOD for track objects and other performance enhancing features.

If you are getting bad FPS, first thing to try is lowering your draw distance.  If that doesn't work, then you can turn down texture quality and all of the other settings.

MAX HUD:
Max HUD has been updated for performance issues - if you still have poor performance follow these instructions --> Max HUD affects performance on this map - if you are using AMD cards or lower spec Nvidia cards then uninstall Max HUD and check your performance - you can simply rename the max hud plug-in with file extension ".bak" so it will not load.  You can then change it back to enable for other tracks.

Post your system specs and performance once you do try it and I'll add to the list below to help others know if they can run it smoothly or not.


Tested GPU Performance:


Are you a YouTuber?
If you want to make a video with commentary on this track, why don't you contact me before hand so you can get some facts about it so you don't ramble on with conjecture about how things were done or why.


Donate to the Track Building Fund
If you enjoyed playing this map feel free to contribute a donation!  You are not obligated to give any modder anything but a thank you - but if you would like to send me something to put towards the next custom track that I do it would be appreciated.

CLICK HERE TO DONATE (https://streamlabs.com/resolutekraken/tip)


Download:
One more thing before you download - if you using first person - check the "Lock to Bike" option and make sure it checked as ON - otherwise you will get extreme camera vibration and it will be unplayable - some kind of bug with size of map and that option.

No, there are only 26 flagged checkpoints on the course.  It needs the ability to add 500 checkpoints in the track editor to set the course and timing penalties for cutting.  The game only supports 50 right now.

Updated main post with link to CP2 to CP4 video.  I have to say with Beta 14, the physics improved a lot for enduro riding.  Average players should be able to make up up most hills now :P

Yeah, I'll probably add some more near the end of the project.  As it is, a lot of people will have problems trying to make it up some of the hills :P

Looking great, can't wait to ride it!
You know what would be cool?
If you set it to all sand, ride it like 50 times and save it as default groove.
That would be a real challenge!

Yeah, might give that a go.  The problem with deformation on this track is the resolution.  It is 4K heightmap and size is 3600x3600 so resolution is low for deformation.

I did a test run on the complete course.  It took me 1 hour and 41 minutes to complete - this is with lots of practice.  I used 7.9 liters of fuel on the GasGas 250 4T.

It'd be awesome to see twice as many rocks in Carl's Diner as well as several uphills, if the game physics allow it. But GODDAMN this looks INSANE. I can't wait to ride it.

Track released!  I hope that everyone likes it.  There are still some problems with endless synching for some people - including myself sometimes when connecting to servers to play it.  I may work at making a "lighter" version of the map with less trees and objects to see if that helps.  Hopfully Piboso can fix the synching problems soon.

One thing that works for a couple of us - turn down your graphics settings all the way to low, including the resolution before you try to connect to a server.  Then, once you have connected successfully, turn them back up.
