How's the creation going mate? I hope the thing that come up wasn't too far into a distant galaxy.. Lol

slowly back to Lierop, sorry guys i'm buried with work lately..
anyway, here's the stock bumpiness of the track plus ruts formed after 3 laps.
hopefully Sandbiter will help with his deformation map thing to make it as much realistic as possible.

Looking good!

For the deformation, it's not very difficult to do. You need to create a mask, the same was as for textures, that you'll use as a material mask. The trick is that you'll use transparency as thickness.

So if you have a thickness of 1, but a transparency of 50%, your in game thickness will be 0.5.

So if you do a 'deformation map', you'll be setting the parts that should have heavy deformation white, the parts with almost no deformation black. Keeping in mind that deformation is also dictated by the pressure applied by the bike.

Asdrael is right. That's how the deformation maps are done.

Doesn't sound that complicated afterall.. But is there any documentation about it?
So I don't have to go by trial and error or keep asking questions..

I AM THE DOCUMENTATION

More seriously, nop, no extensive documentation - at least not when it comes to tricks for making "good" tracks. Just have to do trial and error, and sometimes compile what you've learned in tutorials ;)

This might give you an idea of what we mean. This documentation is for MvA Reflex tracks though, and doesn't apply in Mx Bikes. However how the softness maps looks is how it should look in Mx Bikes as well, but only done with the alpha channel.

So.. Do people like collidable or non collidable bales in Supercross?  8)

Wow! the looks very nice! tbh when i play supercross i feel like i would like them non collidable but, it doesn't effect me that MUCH so i'm down with the rest of the community.
