Q
Is the road really that narrow?

Good progress so far. Much better with the power transmission towers and shrubs.
Yeah, it is. There're a couple of wider sections, but there's also a stretch where Bill Holmes's truck doesn't quite fit and his tire tracks were on the berms on both sides.

Waterbars are a bit beyond the resolution of the data we have. :) But, don't worry the bumps will be there. For high fidelity, imo in-car footage is the way to go. Luckily there is no shortage of it, e.g. Welker and Sombrano have some great HD Gorman footage for me to play with.

Given the tools available, any US rally is probably doable. Depending on the fidelity it could be quick (like that Gorman vid which took 2 hours) or not. ;)
Eddie, if you need better video than you can get from Vimeo, just let me know. Boy do I wish the roads were really that smooth.

Ok here is an update. I got the multitrack working so both sections of N. Boundary are included (that makes 4 stages total including forward and rev). I also added satellite imagery for the terrain. I'm about 40% through elevation adjustments. Then I need to do the objects (I already started that too).

Current Progress:

After taking time off to finish the *real* rally car I've made more update. I'll post a link to the beta version since I need some testers (I have a pretty high end machine so I don't want to make an unplayable stage with too many objects).

Looks great, I would love to test. My machine is pretty middle of the road Core2 Duo + GT9800.

I want to play around with stage building a bit too, I have never done it but was reading about the zaxxon method last night.

Cool. Thanks for the props.

John thats a good link, I hadn't seen that video. There are some features I missed near the end of the stage..some jumps and some fencing.

I did widen the road to make it drivable in a video game :) and as you can see the road surface in the game is harder than in real life.

I'll send PMs with the link. I havent had confirmation that the export worked or not either, so let me know if it works on your systems! =)

Send me a PM and I'll reply with the link.

Here's some updates on the stage. I've tweaked it based on feedback from smokee (thanks dude), added some bumps in sections to mimic the real thing, and did some general tweaking. I think its just about done. :)

I assume that there's some in-car available such that we could use a youtube doubler to see it side by side with the real thing? :)

Eddie, when I get a system up and running this "game" you know you will owe me some tech support.

Well, with Prescott coming up with no recce, I thought I'd make my own :). The Gorman stage was about 3 or 4 miles, this one is 21 miles!

PS the sound track is an inside joke from the CRS forum...

x2, I'm also dying to give these a go.

I'd really like to sorta get a feel for gorman before heading there next year.
