    So here is my new track project. I will post some work in progress here to let you see how it develops.

    For the terrain I will mostly use 3D data from Google which is from 2014.
    For track layout (curbs, road lines, etc) I will use the Google 2D satellite map which is from 2018

    So you can see it's a similar approach than Prototype's Kyalami project but with 3DS Max.

    Google 3D Mesh with main track projected.

    The circuit is located at the northern part of the Erzgebirge. It's a mountainious area. The main characteristic of the track is the many up and downhill sections which makes it fun to drive but on the other hand not easy to get it right.

    next few weeks I'm on holiday so no much wip posts to come.

    EXCELLENT! Super happy to see this :)

    How long did it take you to import and prep all the Google meshes?

    First I had to import them to blender and then I export/import them as OBJ to max.
    Took me a few hours to find out how it works best.

    If I can help you with photos or whatever, let me know! I live almost on the track! Unfortunately I can not help you with modding, I have no idea about that. But I know every bump, every stone ...

    Thanks for the offer. I will definitely come back to you when the track is going in detail.

    Just a small update to let you know things are (slowly) moving on.
    With the help of the LIDAR data I just did the terrain meshes.
    Here are some screenies:

    Looking good! Nice distribution of geometry too. Keeping tabs on this as this is looking very promising :)

    That looks very promising! Will the side streets (escape routes etc.) also be passable?

    I love how you're doing this ! I see that you put a camera on the track spline with the LiDAR data, can you make and post a vid of a lap of the track please ?

    Meanwhile first screenshot of the first track building.
    ATM I try to learn Substance Painter which gives really nice texture results but hard to learn.
