    Default Test League for AMS NASCAR Series. Tues 8PM Est.

    Here's the full release (you'll need to download everything)!

    These are old files, do not download:

    Spoiler
    Release Notes:

    FMS Track Pack (plus extra versions as duplicates). http://www.mediafire.com/download/cc...racks_v.95.zip

    VHR NASCAR 2014 season (Including Camping Truck, Nationwide, and Sprint CUP series) http://www.mediafire.com/download/n3...2014_v0.95.rar

    Series Files for NASCAR. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0Bx...llyVnNTaGhhUms



    Installation instructions:

    FMS Track Pack -> Unzip in Locations folder.

    VHR Nascar file -> Go into Vehicles Folder under Gamedata, delete the VHR folder entirely. -> Unzip in AMS Folder.

    Series Files -> Unzip in Series Folder.


    PATCHES: For the VHR NASCAR Pack: https://www.mediafire.com/?vazrmc04bd0jqiw
    For the FMS Track Pack: http://www.mediafire.com/file/7i1h4m...cks_Patch1.zip
    Redownload the Series File: https://www.mediafire.com/?nmmaravuls6xvvw

    Patch 2 for VHR NASCAR Pack: https://www.mediafire.com/?m68lc16szlud6yl

    Patch 2 for FMS Track Pack: https://www.mediafire.com/?zs79u35230na6y4



    Known Issues:

    Several tracks (like Dover, Bristol and Iowa) have an incredibly high reflective factor on the pavement. Working to fix this. In the mean time, Dawn / Late Afternoon / Dusk race times make the issue less blinding.

    All the FMS tracks can't be used for Night Races.

    Several tracks (Myrtle Beach, Nazareth, and OReilly Raceway Park) are lacking base set ups, including track specified tires.

    Several tracks (like Iowa) have broken gearing files. I've figured out a way to bypass the bug, for now. The default gearing may not be great, but it can be tuned to be good.

    I've worked to start with an acceptable (not necessarily good) baseline set up. Occasionally, some tracks / cars combination have a bug with their default set up and odd stuff happens. It's adjustable in the Garage / Tuning menu, but I'd like to fix the default set up. PLEASE inform me if you find anything outrageous (like really high PSI on one tire).

    AI Performance is inconsistent. Some tracks you blow 105% out of the water, some you can't catch a 90% AI.

    Some tracks had very high "Wheel Shake" track bumpiness. I've fixed a few, but if you find some more, please tell me.

    There may be bugs in the way a NASCAR race is supposed to work. If you find something that isn't how it's supposed to be, please tell me.


    Future Development:

    I hope to finish all files necessary for the tracks to look good in the UI.

    Full default set ups for all Series, Manufacturer and Track.

    Full championship series for Single Player.

    AMS level skyboxes for all tracks. (After 1.0 release)

    Night races for the FMS Tracks. AMS level night skyboxes for all tracks (After 1.0 release)

    AI Performance is evened out.

    Possible custom / historical skin options.




    Last word: We're running a test series Tuesday nights at 8PM eastern to iron out the bugs before we run an official league at the same time. Expect ~3 more weeks of test races before the official league.



    Old Info:
    Spoiler
    Hi!


    I'll be putting together a test series for a future league in Automobilista. We'll be doing NASCAR Vehicles and Tracks.


    Here are the things you need to download:


    Car Pack: http://www.mediafire.com/download/55...014_For_GSC.7z Unzip this into your AMS folder direct.

    Track Pack: http://www.mediafire.com/download/94...FMS_Tracks.zip Unzip this straight into your Locations folder.

    Series Pack: http://www.mediafire.com/download/rb...ies%282%29.zip Unzip this straight into your AMS/Series folder.


    This will be an experiment. We likely will see bugs. But we'll get some great actual stock car racing in, and when we fix the bugs, make a full league.

    -Dannes.


    PATCHES:

    Patch 1: http://www.mediafire.com/download/5y...kCarSeries.zip and http://www.mediafire.com/download/va...car_Patch1.zip DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL BOTH.

    Good news Race Fans! I've been in touch with Mocko, who has been working on basically an identical track pack on his own. We've started to collaborate (i.e. He knows what he's doing and I'm following his instructions), and things are already getting fixed! Each track will have its own tire and default setup, and will actually be driveable right out of the box!

    We may switch over to his track pack, he's got a bunch of tracks I don't have (but I also have a few he doesn't).


    Patch coming shortly.

    Ok, discovered how to change the default set ups. So patches will take a day or two because I gotta fix it for each car (Ford, Chevy, Toyota...) in each class, by hand (basically).

    The baselines are pretty good, for the most part. But occasionally there's a single thing really wrong. For example, all the back cambers are wrong for basically every track and every car. Most default to -3.5 and -3.5 . Occasionally there's one that works, but usually not. Not a big deal, but I'm setting each one to be 3.0 and -3.0 .

    And occasionally I run across a set up that has the back right tire at 40 PSI (33% too high for even a baseline) which makes it undrivable. This is the kind of stuff I'm looking to fix.


    Not to make a baseline, just to make sure it works satisfactorily.

    Realized an error for the installation procedure.

    Please delete the VHR folder in the vehicle folder, and reinstall from the download.

    Patch 2 Edited into the main post. You need to download everything and patch it in order (if you haven't yet). People that have kept up with it just need to download Patch 2.


    Should help with FFB "feel," but I need feedback on what you think.
