Awesome, thanks! My first win.
I have a nice challenge for you guys. A while ago, I re-installed Grand Prix Legends and had some good fun looking at the track maps and how simple they looked compared to modern track maps, for instance the difference between the original Silverstone and today’s: Image
The challenge is as follows: take a modern F1 track (2000 to now) and re-design it to 50s standards. I made this some time ago for the Sepang international circuit, it should give you an idea of what to do: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=5808319 Of course, you can also do a reverse Zandvoort, instead of going from red to gray, the other way around. http://www.orangehat.nl/Fotos/gscpz/cpz48-72.jpg
Of course, there are some rules:
- The track has to be between 4.0 and 7.5 kilometers long.
- Buildings may be demolished, roads used and that will not be taken into account for the rating, however, using as much of the current circuit as possible, while giving it a 50s look and feel will be rewarded more.
-Since Silverstone, Monaco, Monza, Spa and Hockenheim actually had simpler layouts in the past, their older layouts are disqualified from this round, so no original Hockenheimring, Monza without chicanes or Spa with the old Bus Stop, etc. You can however use those tracks in this round, but if it looks too much like an older used layout, that will be negative for your grade. However, if you manage to design a 50s looking track on any of these without copying their old layouts, that might score you bonus points.
- 2000 to now means you can use any track that was included in a season between 2000 and now.
