Krunch Skybox - An improved skybox system for rFactor tracks
By Neil 'Krunch' Faichney


original skybox mesh files (c)copyright 2005 Image Space Incorporated.

A bit of artistic creativity was needed for this track as it is yet to be made. Turn 2 Chicane needs work, unfortunately I had a hard drive failure recently and lost the btb source files for this track and only have a very early backup, so there will not be any updates to this track for some time I'm afraid until I have the time to rebuild it. Meanwhile....

Well, it's december 09th, 2011............Any UPDATED news on ur TRACK??????? Of course, u released a verion 9mths before it was raced on, lol.........2 events have occurred since
nikolarse68 on Dec-09-2011

Yes it might be a closer representation of the track, as it was made well after the track was made. My track was constructed when the homebush race was just announced, 10 months before the track ever saw the light of day. How are you meant to build a track that is a close representation of a track, when the f#$%ing track dosnt exist??????????????????

There is an updated version of this track at fvrfactor which is a closer representation of this track.

Can I use the objects for the Homebush circuit i'm making?
C0starulz on Dec-08-2009

Great job, mate. The only really significant errors that I can see are obviously the turn 2-3-4 chicane needs fixing, also I get the feeling that the main straight and the straight between turns 7 and 8 need to be longer. The track is about 10 seconds too quick, and I think a lot of that is the first chicane, but the circuit also needs stretching in an east-west direction.

Great effort though, considering the track didn't exist when you made it. :-)

Why even post if you can't work out that this track was made even before the final track layout was decided. Hope you are enjoying all the free tracks that people make for you. Speaking of "inaccurate".....
