    Hey all!

    Just signed up because I saw that great post about making custom tracks, and decided to make one :)

    Anyway, I've got my basic map in the game, but I'm having troubles with the scale. How do I tell how big the car is to the curbs, for example?

    When I make my track big enough, the curbs are massive (like half the width of the car). Have I missed anything?

    Basically I'm wondering how pro modders keep everything the right size :p

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! :)

    Hi welcome
    To answer your question: all units are meters :). Always use them and everything will fall in place naturally.

    Oh ok, thanks. So by units you mean the Blender's unit measurement system?

    So this is 1.85 meters wide?

    Yes and Yes :) - even though 1.85 might be a bit wide - but that depends on the track design(er).

    Thanks for the help!
