Tracks / 2019 AMA Supercross - Glendale, Arizona
August 15, 2019, 11:16:19 pm

The Phoenix-area stop of supercross is especially unique because it is one of just two cities in the history of the sport, along with Los Angeles, to host its round of the championship in three different stadiums, which also includes Tempe's Sun Devil Stadium (5 races from '86-'98) and downtown Phoenix's Chase Field ('99-'15).
The start straight on the expansive floor of University of Phoenix Stadium this weekend will span approximately 384 feet, making it the longest in the championship. Riders will be able to push speeds nearing an incredible 60 miles per hour.
The one-of-a-kind shape of the stadium's exterior was built to resemble that of a barrel cactus, found in abundance in the Phoenix area, as well as a coiled snake, also abundant in the area's desert landscape.

How to install:
Simply put the .pkz file in your mods/tracks folder.

Quote from: PizzaChet on August 12, 2019, 10:54:56 pmHow come none of the tracks for MXB have braking or acceleration bumps or whoops that actually resemble whoops? Instability. That is also something MXS does way more realistically. MXB is far more modern in certain features yet MXS has nailed down some of the key things for realism. Both have quite a way to go sound-wise.
The first dozen tracks which were released for Mx Sim didn't have any roughness what so ever. As more people got the game and started to get better, rougher tracks were made.

MX Bikes still doesn't have a big community and half of the people playing now can't even get a clean lap in on flat tracks due to their lack of practice.

Mx Sim is more fun in certain ways, but a lot more arcade-like. I do have to admit that it is more stable on bumps etc. but that does not mean it is impossible in MXB.

Unfortunaly as far as I know it's not possible.

I've made a topic quite a while back on what might be possible though.
Track Editing / Ruben's track bundler

Ruben's track bundler

Getting your track in game has never been easier. Ruben's track bundler creates a batch file (bundleMe.bat) based on your input. A click on the batch file will create your track's .map, .trh with centerlines and copies your working folder to a location specified by you.

This is NOT a track editor. It does save you a lot of time bundling your track though.

Make sure:
You're not using any spaces in any of your file / folder names. I haven't made a proper check on it yet, but I doubt it works in MXB anyway.

How to use:
Extract RubensTrackBundler.exe in your track folder. Double click it and follow the steps. Once done a batch file called bundleMe.bat is created in the same folder as where you placed RubensTrackBundler.exe. Double click bundleMe.bat and wait until it is done (You might require to open it as admin by right clicking and choosing run as administrator). The time required to bundle the track will vary. On a track with a lot of objects and high quality textures it'll take longer than on a track without. The batch file will close automatically once it's done.

Quote from: Exotiks on July 09, 2019, 05:34:58 amDon't know if this is just online or entire game, but whenever I launch the game I have to reset the bike push forward and back every time.
Yup I have this same issue as well. And sometimes if I load into a track it won't allow me to change the buttons back at all.

Exotiks do you have an Nvidia graphics card by chance. It may sound stupid but I think its related to shadowplay or the overlay. I downloaded a graphics update but didn't install it yet so my shadowplay overlay was disabled. I opened Mx bikes and went straight to the button mappings to check and see if I had the bug and everything looked normal.
I've a Nvidia graphics card with the overlay enabled. No problems here.

I honestly wasn't trolling you ???

Quote from: PizzaChet on July 08, 2019, 03:54:42 pmWere you aware that the other dirtbike sim across the pond had a big update this weekend too? Coincidence, or "cold war" one-upmanship?
Big update?

Mx Sim's updates are a bundle of all snapshots since last update. If you've downloaded all snapshots the update doesn't have anything new in it.

Quote from: Clutch_Luck on June 30, 2019, 09:28:06 pm*To install you have to find misc.pkz in the main installation directory and change the .pkz to .rar or .zip then open it using winrar. Then open misc->bg and replace bg.amb and bg.map with the modded files. Remember to always keep back up files.

Thanks a lot for this much need mod Insane. I'm surprised no one did this sooner. I know its an old thread but just wanted to help out anyone new that might not figure it out right away.
You shouldn't have to touch any .pkz files for mods to work. You're only increasing the chance of things not working properly.

Mx Sim is better for Axel Hodges type sh*t. Full throttle blowing through a berm and doing insanely big jumps.
Mx Bikes on the other hand is a lot more realistic. I'm not saying you can't full throttle blow through berms and do big jumps though. It's possible, just not as forgiving and straight forward to do.

Both games are great, but if you're really going for a simulator, choose Mx Bikes. Mx Simulator is more fun for the big 'stupid' stuff.

This pretty much sums up Mx Sim.
