Detroit downtown circuit (WIP thread)
I think in US brake distance on racetracks usually measured in feet.

It's got to be yards..

Here's the latest playable version of Detroit! It has brake markers and some trackside (placeholder) objects, but hopefully enough for you to run some decent laps.

I fixed as many drawing order bugs as I could without spending a ton of time, but I know there are things like colors that are messed up.

No AI yet, so please just run it in preseason testing. @samsepi0l, do you think you can make some AI for this one (even rough ones)? I know you're busy, so no worries if you can't get to it right now.

Feedback appreciated especially on the layout and how it drives. It's gone through a few changes since the last version I posted.

My best is 1:39:297 so far using my Nashville setup.
It's a blast to drive.

I'm just watching the 1991 race video, searching for the TV cameras. The camera before T7 Congress Street is on a building, which you don't have. Could you make it, so I can get the right position? You can see the building in the video at 19:49, the camera is on the tower next to it.

Are you talking about this building? My map calls the upcoming turn "Turn 8" which is the left turn onto Beaubien Blvd. And yes I can make that building - it is no longer there today but I can see it on an older aerial but I will have to estimate its height.

Yes, that's it.
I just want to adjust the camera positions to the buildings, if they appear in the game.
There are 3 more cameras on buildings, but you already have them.

Posting a small update. This one has the additional building that Dennis mentioned, and some more run-off areas in certain corners. The drawing order doesn't work as well compared to the previous version because I had to reset the drawing order in OPE and didn't have time to manually adjust.

I am happy to see how this is going! I will gladly help you with the LPs when the track is a little more mature.

(I have been less available lately because of some work/job related things going on.)
