I could be wrong in saying this but most people are disliking the track because the terrain is about 30% or more over-scaled. The decals are subpar for visuals, and the lighting doesn’t help the decal situation. Overall I think the roughness is great, maybe a tad bit much in spots but hopefully erode works well with this pre-made. I liked ddavis’s explanation.

Close, the track is 25% over-scaled. I guess I'm on the other end but I don't think erode has ever been this visible with dark dirt.



No, don't listen to this neanderthal. Keep overscaling the tracks. Way more fun.

*a fix for FPS drop*

I noticed JLV set priority to High for sim before I started dealing with FPS drop, so I simply set it back to Normal, then High again. FPS drop/lag spike gone.

Stoked I made it into the big boy race tonight, first time since 2013 or so.

Look guys im all for erode and I think it could be really good, but when our tracks go from looking like this:

To this:

At what point is it still worth it? I get that this is the future of sim and this is how its gonna be but is it really worth it to go so backwards on the visuals of the track? I could run the 2017 tracks with 40 people with higher graphics than Im running now and I wouldn't get any FPS drops at all and they looked amazing visually. Now on the erode tracks it looks like im running a JLV track when he first introduced shaders. I definitely understand that we have to do this to be able to see the erode, but to me it just feels like we are taking 15 steps back visually just to be able to see erode and to me that just doesn't seem worth it.

I think erode would be pretty sweet on that track Kyle posted but with erode on like .15 or .2 to make the ruts and bumps a bit deeper/gnarlier, rather than us making ruts from scratch or from a groove, but who knows.

In-game settings or setting priority in task manager?

10 years ago Reflex had both erode and visuals on a shitty XBOX. It can happen in sim, but it's going to take developer assistance.

Some serious updates have been needed for both visuals and performance for some time now, until those come, you get playdough and frame drops when the community are the ones trying to evolve the game without support on the backend.

In JLV's defense, he's been dealing with cheating douche monkey's who are not only taking time but also resources and performance from what I understand.

Regardless, be careful... there aren't many good creators left. The epic guys at rough and ruts (Hagg/yfmx/gio) are long gone... don't scare away the few that are left away.

Task manager, i tried it aswell and it actually helped a little bit.
