i know corners need smoothing out and the odd middle corner ruts need fixing.
what else?

I found corners to be fine..

its the large braking bumps before the turns and sometimes after that throw the rear wheel over your head

It would be nice to be able to clear the big triple every lap. I can do it on the 450 but only if I take the very outside and only if the separating ruts / outside berm doesn't catch me out. No way I can clear it on the 250 which is a shame because watching gopros the 250s hit it fine :(

btw - if you want to make the track more "forgiving" while being able to ride more aggressivly, you could go for regular soil instead of compact. IRL, it seems like regular soil. Plus, if you make the track smoother, regular soil will deform more and make for a more living track.

When it comes to the corners, one thing I think is a bummer is that there is no advantage to taking the outside lines or berms. The outsides are just as blown out as the inside so for example taking the inside for the triple step up is faster and much more consistent, which makes the track 1 line and takes out the risk vs. reward factor.

Hey guys, just an update to let you all know that work on the smoothed out highpoint is underway and feeling great. We are working on the deformation to feel like redbud. Might need some advice here though fats if you wouldn't mind mate :) I'll post a video 2 moro as soon as I can fix why the textures are really shiny...

Sounds good :) Shiny textures - check your normals (texture_n.tga), the alpha channel being too bright is usually what causes it.

more lines that we can take so 40 riders will fit in this track (of course there's never that number of riders for now, but in the future there will be). What I meant is that I would love to see that we can take different lines in the corners and still be fast.

I don't think so on a 250 mate, but then I'm a back of the pack guys so you guys could well do it.

looking good man!
would still like some more berms tho, now looks a bit flat.

Also, is there any chance of implementing the same deformation used on redbud?
the track deforms too little.

thank you gdub, great job!

I can reply for him :p Deformation dépends on track material (as does grip btw). HighPoint is Compact Soil, Redbud is mostly Soft Soil. Compact barely deforms while Soft deforms really fast. So unless they decide to move highpoint to normal soil (it's definitely not soft anyway), deformation won't change it much.
