Silverstone 2010 1.0 – Released

FCMG has released the 2010 Silverstone Arena Circuit for rFactor, adding one of this year’s Formula One Grand Prix venues to the simulation.

Features:

New 2010 “Arena section” from the new right turn ‘Abbey’ to ‘Brooklands’
– Updated ‘Club’ turn, which has been slightly shortened and squared off for 2010
– New fencing (eventual 2011 new pit-wall)
– Paved runoffs (as per 2010 spec)
– Driveable trackside terrain

Opened in 2009, the so-called Silverstone Arena Circuit is 5.9 kilometers in length and features 18 turns. The new configuration will be used by various series, most importantly for the MotoGP and Formula One.

Important: This track is an addon to ISI’s Northamptonshire circuit which needs to be installed to use it. rFactor Lite users can download Northamptonshire here.

    @Loetkoe.. You are the VERY FIRST to say this problem.
    Do you have Northamptonshire 1.0 installed?

    Yeah I have. Might it be that I use DirectX 7?

    Thank you. I’ll try this out. If you have any problems with the new layout, write ‘WTF DAMON??’ to [email protected] πŸ˜€

    “- New fencing (eventual 2011 new pit-wall) ”
    Great! It was installed a few days ago.

    PS: https://www.virtualr.net/wp-content/gallery/2353/grab_033.jpg Bloody hell! How did you do that???

    Double check that you have dropped the 2010BGP folder INTO Northamptonshire. (not just into Locations).
    If that fails, try re-downloading from the mega upload link I have supplied at the top of this thread. (your first download may be corrupt).
    Keep in touch. I’m trying to help.

    No it wasn’t. It already was there in April during Superleague Formula race. πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for the update FCMG. This is the most accurate new Silverstone layout to date. πŸ˜€

  • rci808

    We at FCMG have to give a very special thanks to ‘Piddy’ for Bob’s Track Builder,
    and the creators of the 10 other tools it took to mod ISI’s track.

    cheers, FCMG

    I had it in Northamptonshire. Downloaded the Megaupload one and replaced but still same. This time I got to see the gmotor 2 error report (last time I tried I only heard the *bing*) “Error loading texture RMBLA2GRASS for material RMBL_A2GRASS”

    Interesting, 1,700 downloads and you are the only one with problems reported.
    You on rfactor 1.255? …or it just may be a Direct X 7 issue.

    Yeah 1.255. Can’t run on DX8 or 9 since it lags too much

  • Loetkoe

    Well now it works when I placed those files in the folder of the track πŸ™‚ Thank you for this great work!

  • PieLighter

    Which files did you put where? I have the same problem, running DX7 for the same reasons, and I have the ISI Northamptonshire tracks.

  • PieLighter

    The 2010BGP folder is in GameData/Locations/Northamptonshire, so don’t try to tell me that.

  • rci808

    Perhaps Loetkoe can better describe the steps he has taken to make it work.
    I have tested with DX7 and it works fine.

  • PieLighter

    I’ve tried extracting the MAS files into the Northamptonshire and 2010BGP folders and it still will not work.
    rF version 1255.

  • rci808

    Probably best for you to just start from scratch at this point, download Northamptonshire 1.0 from the link supplied in this story.
    Take out the Northamptonshire that you have at the moment.
    Replace it with the new Northamptonshire 1.0, then simply drop 2010BGP folder into Northamptonshire folder. (you shouldnt have to move MAS files around at all)
    Also make sure the 2010BGP folder is 14.6 MB in size (if not, then you may have a faulty download).

  • Loetkoe

    I took a couple of DDS and renamed them to RMBLA2GRASS.DDS, RMBLA2ASPHALT.DDS and RMBLAGRAVEL.DDS. And placed them to the track folder πŸ˜€

  • PieLighter

    No luck. Loetkoe, can you send me your Northamptonshire folder?
    @rci808,
    I downloaded ISI Northamptonshire specifically to be able to run this track. And it’s not a faulty download.

  • PieLighter

    I had this problem with many other Arena Silverstone circuits and the Silverstone from the WCP 09 trackpack. But this one is the one I’m interested in…

  • Loetkoe

    PieLighter: No luck. Loetkoe, can you send me your Northamptonshire folder?
    @rci808,
    I downloaded ISI Northamptonshire specifically to be able to run this track. And it’s not a faulty download.

    What error does it give in the popup before it ctd’s?

  • jage

    Works a treat, very nice work :tongue:

  • PieLighter

    Errors about not being able to load RMBLA2GRASS. Exactly the same as you had and the same for all tracks that don’t work for me. Hen and Chicken Lane, Finke Farm (both off-road for ORR2) and some of the Silverstone tracks.

  • rci808

    2500 downloads in 48 hours and 2 of our recipients have problems reported..

    We at FCMG are beginning to think your problems are system based… YOU MAY NEED TO UPGRADE!

  • rci808

    When reporting problems it is ALWAYS helpful to provide your system status.
    ie. graphics card spec. etc..
    We are working on trying to understand this little bug. (mod works fine on all our test systems)

    Cheers, FCMG

    Then it should work when taking a DDS from some other folder (whatever it is) and name it RMBLA2GRASS and another one named RMBLA2ASPHALT because it’ll request that next. And put them to the 2010 Arena track folder.

    I don’t have the resources to upgrade my PC so I’m stuck with it.

    Loetkoe, thanks a lot! It worked perfectly! I just took a grass texture from a BTB track. The rumble strips/kerbs are made of grass now, but the track works!
    Love the Arena complex and the new Club!

  • Loetkoe

    No problem πŸ™‚

    Great track it is. Thanks for making it!

  • PieLighter

    You have to create the folders, with the exact names, and download the files one at a time.
