Track Infos from Wiki :
The Yas Marina Circuit is the venue for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. The circuit was designed by Hermann Tilke, and is situated on Yas Island, about 30 minutes from the capital of the UAE, Abu Dhabi. Yas Marina is the second Formula One track in the Middle East, with the first being in Bahrain. A two-day GP2 Asia Series test was held to officially open the circuit, which was held a week before the 2009 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. It also hosted the opening event for the Australian V8 Supercars series, the Yas V8 400, in February 2010. Outside motorsport the circuit was used for the final stage of the inaugural Abu Dhabi Tour cycle race in 2015. The circuit has FIA Grade 1 license.
The virtual track :
This first version of the track was made a while ago. Since the real track still has to be finished, it’s obvious that this vritual version is not completely accurate.
La Plat did a great effort to create this track for GP4. Birkuc converted it to rFactor, and he gave me permission to bring it to GTR2.
According to the plans I found on the net, there will not be so much fencing on the infield, and I think the hairpin (turn 5-7) is not very accurate. Also it looks as if there will be more run off tarmac and not so much sand traps.
I tried to change a few things, but I guess the original author might come up with a v2.0 as soon as the real track is revealed, so I did nog take it too far.
The biggest change: I took out some buildings and I remodeled the run off at the first hairpin. I also replaced the sand pits with concrete run-offs.
Done by me :
– basic conversion to GTR2
– AIW adjustment (pacecar, fueluse, )
– rain reflection
– animated marshalls
– fixed startlights and pitlights
– some mesh-editing
– reduced the grand stands polys for FPS
– AIW garage positions need to be fixed (WIP)
– some shadows missing
– skybox is still missing
– track layout and trackside objects are not totally accurate yet…
– original GP4 version: La Plat
– rFactor version: Birkuc & FRS
– GTR2 LODS: FrankBB and Blackhawk
