2nd gear, sure as hell not wide open. you have to be really precise. They look like that irl as well, or course, I digitally remastered them some.

nice as i said on msn, though that 90 degree turn look a bit dodgey or is that just the camera angle?

Hey again, here's my project now (new track the last one was not that good)
But i have the biggest problem i could image.. the WHOLE track is covered with these "waves" and i don't want them in there here's a pic or two to show what i mean
Image
Heres a pic of the first section i made (the pics are old i explain later on this post what is going on) and then it was smooth, but after like 5-6 ruts (that = 5-6 jump or other sections) it came so wavy, now I'm in trouble.
Image
Heres a upshot of the track, the black line is what was not done then, its done now (the hole track is done i just have the problem)
Image
So could someone help me out? do i need to just smooth things out and BTW when doing that i mess my jumps always or braking bumps and stuff...
I think its cause i did NOT photoshop this map, i used a simple photo editing program with less tools and options.
So if anyone is able to help me out it would be a relief.
By the way, im not able to say if the jumps are good to ride (atleast the 5-6 first ones i did was, cause the waves block the bike so bad.)
Reply as soon as possible i want to beging decals and obj placing allready.

In photoshop, you need to be working in grayscale mode, 16 bit.

That hopefully didn't mean i have to do it again? i COULD do it but its lot of work, also I'm wondering how to make decent jumps that can be Pinned, not like some of those that need to be taken at slow speeds to land in landing.
Any tips for "measuring" it in photoshop? or should i just try making big if you can get good speed on it, and shorter if they got tiny speed area?

Gdt, or anyone, do you know how to change the bit of the image in Gimp? I've always wondered, i tryed googling it, no luck. Making the terrain for a track in gimp (or photoshop) on an 8-bit image makes the terrain look like it has steps in it, so it would help you Duckstream if you also made your terrain.png a 16-bit image.

That could be useful, that track was so hard work :S
I could also try learning gimp on the other computer (witch don't have cs2-3-4-5 any photoshop cause network problems.

tried gdt:s tutorial and figured this is going to look good actually, but i don't know how rideable that is.
Image
Tell me what you think should i get that one going too (the other ones just waiting to be done lol I'm lazy i start things and cant really finish them)
if anyone has will to make me decals pm me please, I'm not a big fan of them, my decals are maybe good sometimes (artist opinion) but i usually mess them up too much and the perfect things are ruined.
I will finish the other track soon just playing with photoshop things now :)

I'd redo the gradients on that berm until it looks a tad bit neater. Also, up the poly count on your render plane, or set it smooth.
