Hey all

So after the current tracks are done I wanted to try my hand at a replica. Just wondering what tracks you guys would like to see made? Have already considered a couple of European tracks but also strongly looking at red bud. Looking for something not too challenging but worth while.  National obviously- no SX..

So, what would you guys like to see?  :D

edit: changed the topic title to better match topic.

Replica local tracks are always sick. Can you do some from Michigan?

Got any specific suggestions def?

 Sorry, I know you said it to def, but, any interest in doing TNMX? Thurs. Night MX in the infield of Portland Intl. Raceway (PIR). I don't remember seeing nighttime scenes in PiBoSo games, but it's mostly night racing. Washougal would be too steep for this, I think. Who's track has the steepest uphill so far?

I think you got it Chet. TNMX looks perfect! Small enough to get some really nice track detail, all the sections look easily rideable in game, only thing is the inability to add other light sources so would have to be daytime. I think this is next!

Reminds me of the practice track  :D

edit: Chet can you find a layout of the pro loop there? Seems like mostly on Youtube the GoPro stuff is all amateur, but the trackside stuff is mostly pro with bigger jumps, also the track has changed a lot by the look of it since some of the older videos. If you know it maybe you could sketch it up roughly?

The problem is tnmx changes layouts weekly. There are some permanent sections, but it is probably worthwhile to just find a layout you like and run with it lol. I have go pro footage of myself racing if you'd like to use it as reference.

Thanks cdub, yeh it definitely seemed that way from all the vids I've seen. Is your footage on online?

MXK_cdub85

no i can throw it up on mediafire or just pm it to you though. let me know

𝖙𝖋𝖈

Sure pm it over man that would be great! Thanks :)

I have some trackside GoPro of a rare layout I need to process and upload. That would be rad if you did it!

That would be great man, I think if MX Bikes works the same as karts / GP - you can have multiple layouts. If the layout cdub is riding is the same overall layout I could always look at doing two versions. Don't rush - got a couple of things to finish before moving on to this project, but I'd love to see it!

cdub - thanks man, really useful! all the GoPro footage of this kind of layout on youtube is edited so much it's hard to tell the layout. I've tried to plot it real quick (and google maps is probably outdated, won't be using it as a reference)

Does this look right?

Nice holeshot btw  ;D


PizzaChet

That definitely shows the most used layout.

Still a work in progress, and the last section (to the right of the start straight) is untouched atm, but its very ride-able, really fun..

I recorded a lap to that point in fraps, and although I am not as fast as cdub from his vid, all the sections work pretty much perfectly when comparing the vids at the same time. Used the layout from earth explorer screenshot and tried to get the scale as close as possible. When I finish the last section I will upload a lap vid.
