PiBoSo, apparently there is an issue with surfaces. Red Bud for example is one track where going from one surface type to another gives a weird kick.

I can't imagine there is anything I can do to fix this.

Would you mind pointing me to the problem part of the track?

Thanks Snappe and thanks Phil for the illustration.

I've not really had a chance to play much myself so I'm bringing this up on behalf of everyone who's told me. It all worked in every other beta 👍

Greatly reduced bandwidth usage during connection ( and therefore lowered connection time a bit as well ).

Fixed server restart.

Copied/pasted from the track modding portion of the discord where i was having the same/similar issue. When there is a hard transition it causes a kick, where theres a smooth/gradual transition its smooth

The issue I was having (that may be the same issue people are having on red bud, FTT, and glen helen) was invisible bumps at random spots of the track. This seems to be caused by the material layers. For example in the FIRST screenshot of the mapview, you can see where the track transitions from sand to soil at the bottom of the roller. This is where my invisible bump was and it was the only spot on the track where I was drawing my material masks a little differently. The sand mask (SECOND screenshot) was overlapping my hardpack mask (THIRD screenshot). The way this tracks layers are setup is with 4 layers. Starting from layer 4, Sand(the sand mask which only covers parts of the track)->Soil(the hardpack mask that only covers part of the track(the corner in the screenshot))->Soft Soil(the mask that covers the entire rideable area of the track that is underneath all other masks)->base layer of Soil.

How the issue was fixed:
Where the sand and hardpack masks met was a single hard line, like this (FOURTH screenshot) which is exaggerated. As you can see there is no smooth transition between them (did red and blue for the example, but imagine the blue being my mask_hardpack.tga and the red being my mask_sand.tga). When you would ride over the transition from red to blue, you would feel an invisible bump, kind of like riding up a curb that you couldnt see. How this was fixed was by smoothing out the masks and giving them just a little space with no hardness like in the Fifth screenshot. Again, imagine blue as mask_hardpack.tga and red as mask_sand.tga. This made the feeling of hitting an invisible curb go away, now it rides like the rest of the track.

My worry is that this wasn't an issue before so something changed has caused it. I think you should be able to have any mix of surfaces without issue.
