These are my first two tries at making a track using Bob's Track Builder (thank you Piddy for providing us with such a great tool). They were both done in a day and are only meant as a test of what BTB is capable of. I plotted the path in Google Earth, imported it into BTB, added a height difference, smoothed out some curves, added a rudimentary terrain, and in the case of "Tsukuba", some vegetation to cover "The Edge of The Universe". Other than that they are not polished in any way, and I'd say that they are at best around 5-10% done.
The thing is, the time limit in my demo of BTB is running out and I don't (yet) have the money to buy a license for the full version, and really don't have the time nor the artistic capability to make a really nice looking track, nor even a good track to drive. So I'm releasing all the files and data I've used to create these tracks for the community to use. If someone is interested just throw me a note and I'll upload the BTB project folders and the Google Earth paths and everything to RapidShare so you can download and fiddle with them to your hearts content. All I'm asking is that if you do eventually come up with something driveable, throw me a note so that I may test it out. Also it would be kind to mention my name somewhere, but I'm not that picky with that sort of stuff. =)
So yeah, test them, modify them, whatever you wish, my stuff is your stuff, if you want it. =)
Added another version of Akagi Uphill, now with TREES, wowzerz, so you can tell how fast you're going. You can't crash them, but the treewall will keep you from dropping over the edge of the universe.
Added a new version of Akagi Uphill, this time I used real elevation data, no more constant climb rates!
