Does anyone else get this error message, "Error opening MAS file SKY.MAS"? Some help on this would be great please

Most wrong criticism I see made of tracks is by people who don't understand FOV and think that a track is too wide and flat when, in actually, it IS accurate, however, they still want it to be realistic even if they don't understand it the way computer graphics work.

spot on with that statement.

"the conclusion we came up with is ppl criticize if too real and"

Cool, but I've never heard of anyone criticizing a track for being too real or accurate. Unless perhaps they are mistaking accuracy for something else. (Well not racing sim fans anyway.) Most wrong criticism I see made of tracks is by people who don't understand FOV and think that a track is too wide and flat when, in actually, it IS accurate, however, they still want it to be realistic even if they don't understand it the way computer graphics work.

I find accuracy in short supply with most tracks even from pros. They may get the layout correct but buildings are in wrong spots, trees that don't exist on the real track, no accurate track-side safety vehicles and such, no accurate track marshal outfits, no accurate adverts and signage, odd proportions of things... Imagine of that much artistic license was taken with the vehicles... graphic designers adding extra tail-lights and changing the basic shape of the car... I guess it's familiarity and the designers know they can get away with changing things people aren't familiar with.... but once you are familiar with it then it's disappointing and irritating.... some pros don't even seem to try at all... it's like they look at a "few" pics for reference and slap something together then gloss it over with cool shaders and eye-candy so you don't notice how fake it actually is... then the naive gamers with fat wallets OOO!!! and AHHH!!! about it so the studio and publisher get paid lots of money and walk away from the project to go enjoy spending their cash, and we sim-lovers are left having to clean up the mess (then they chide us for doing it and implement always on internet connection schemes to punish us). Oh well...

...But I am Looking forward to trying this. Thanks.

i agree dbens1 when testing we did talk about this and the conclusion we came up with is ppl criticize if too real and some if not enough. so we went for the middle. My opinion for rf2 we do it as "REAL" as possible and you race it or you dont. As with all the new features of RF2 everything should be made as real as possible i think. PS wud love to b rich to laser scan roflmfao

Yeah I know what you mean What is important is getting it out there and people can use it or leave it (always been our opinion) Dont know how it would be possible to laser scan a temporary track But would be a fun experiment.
