Nürburgring Grand-Prix Stecke

Post by yarro » Sat Dec 18, 2010 6:08 am

Hi, I've made a model of the Nürburgring Grand-Prix Stecke racetrack. I'll upload it to play with pretty soon. Mr. Apple is the race track master so maybe he can use it. I think I might make a tutorial on how to make roadways soon and I'll throw up a link, burp.
Here is a screenshot.

I just need to convert into a bzfworld or wings format. To get it working I don't have a good environment as I can't run BZ test launcher on Windows 7. So I'll just post as an object and not a map as soon as I can, in the next couple of days or so.

Anyone interested can play with scale. If you size 1 to 1 and then 1600 to one in a large world it should be OK as long as the object is centered oriented right axis.

So I can't test and I'll release on some copy left or open source liscence when I get back home to my PC.

Hi again, I'm releasing the track as a BZW map object

If you want to make the model usable in a bzw check out this post
http://stats.bzflag.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=65&t=15338
I will try to fix the orientation issues and put the file here but since I cannot test on win 7 with the bztestlauncher then you still may need to do some scaling, rotation, etc.
If I cam figure out how to sets without testlauncher I may have more luck.
Another problem is that there seems to be grouping going as that is the error I get in test launcher but the object is not grouped in the editor so I'm not sure what is happening.

wings (or the conversion) divided the surface into billions of tiny triangles. any way you can reduse them back to just one surface?

I would save your model to a mesh .obj file and then convert it to a .bzw, the forum did not allow an upload of the .obj file format. Also try smoothing normals as that may help get rid of angular road edges. Another thought is your world might need to be 2000 square units or even much larger to say 5000 to show model at a more correct scale.

Just for the record, it's called "Strecke" or more properly "Rennstrecke", but not "Stecke" which doesn't even exist as a noun in german language.

Thanks, I'll update the world name when I release it. I just cut and pasted from a site on grand prix race tracks that showed outlays. I'm sure your correct though.

.obj files are allowed, though limited to 1MB in size.

I finally had time to get a working racetrack mesh object in a BZWorld file. Just a track and no world furniture as yet. Think I will put it in a game in a bit. Here it is if you want to try it out or include it in yours. :mrgreen:

I'll add screen shots when I have a moment, anyone know the best way to get a shot or movie capture?
