Com8 Nordschleife 2009 – 24h Layout Preview

Com8 Nordschleife 2009 – 24h Layout Preview

Com8 has made lots of progress with reworking the Nürburgring Nordschleife in GTR Evolution. Based on the original Simbin version, his 2009 version will contain many changes such as new textures, the removal of all fictional advertisement boards and lots of trackside objects.

Below are first previews of the Nürburgring 24 Hour Race 2009 layout version of the track. The 24h race uses a slightly different configuration of the track that does not include the Mercedes Arena corners as these are needed for additional paddock space. Aside from the layout changes, the 24h version of course also features the main difference to normal races on the Nordschleife – Over 100.000 fans camping around the legendary track.

With the 24h layout out of the way, Com8 will now be concentration on adding another important feature that was missing in the original version of the track – Shadows. Aside from being released for GTR Evolution, Com8 is also planning on releasing an rFactor version of the track, equipped with a DVD-check to comply with Simbin’s community rules.

    Stunning work. Thanks for update 😉

  • paupau

    Much needed, good luck ➡

  • DrumStick

    Shadows were missing in the original version of the track of course. But isn’t that the most important we need for realistic feeling. Bumps, we need bumps, because the original track too easy (we can go very fast with no risk) and too sterile.

  • gtrNL

    WOOOW!

    absolutly great!
    I can not wait, keep it up!

  • Grozni

    agree with you DrumStick, SimBin’s NS too flat… :weird:
    would be nice to see some bumps addition.

  • DrumStick

    Then I’m not alone who want bumps. 😉

  • Com8

    me too! 😎

  • -eRNIe-

    Shadows! YES! 😎

  • Uff

    This will probably bring me back to GTR Evo. 😎

  • DeDios

    Com8:
    me too!

    +1 😎

  • sibkin

    I was waiting Nordschleife Evo`s layout for rFactor!
    I know I should not ask this.
    but….
    When will release?
    I can`t wait :happy:

  • BenUK

    Bumps are only welcome though if they reflect
    A) where they actually are on track and
    B) if they can be done with the correct level of severity.

    Too many SimBin tracks have “bumps” that are just total fantasy. In reality the majority of modern tracks are quite smooth, and hasn’t the Ring recently been resurfaced or at least part resurfaced?

  • Com8

    that’s right, beside that i know some real race drivers from the VLN series that will provide some feedback if my modeled bumps are realisitc or not…

    Excellent! This is going to be such a nice track when you are done with it!! :happy: 😎

  • DrumStick

    Super! Thanks!

  • RaYqUe

    Maybe some preview video instead of screens ?

  • JGoenR

    Nice! Can’t wait to drive there. :happy:

  • BenUK

    Its a shame the grass on the GP loop looks so false, just 1 texture for the entire track?

    Can anything be done with the grass?

    Com8, I find the original Ring 2007 track for rFactor a lot more accurate than the GTRevo track. Great work on the textures here, but the real problem is the track geometry.

    Weird I thought the geometry was very good. look at this movie: http://www.feebs.nl/video/107244b31a01d

    And those who say the hights aren’t good, well check your fov..
