Oran Park Laser Scan for rFactor 2 – New Progress Previews

Mike Cantwell continues to make great progress on the historical Oran Park track for rFactor 2 based on a conversion from the rFactor track made from Brendon Pywell, Brendan Elliott & Chris Larmour in 2008.

Above is a look at Mike’s latest progress, showing plenty of new trees and other details that improve upon the original mesh created with the help of laser-scanned data.

12 years ago, laser-scanned tracks were still a rare thing and for a modding project to rely on LiDAR data was almost unheard of. Thankfully Brendon Brendan Elliott managed to get their hands on Oran Park’s data before the track was demolished in 2009 to make room for a housing estate.

As Mike continues to make progress, you can get give an early version of the track a try here.
