    Thanks for the continued patience. I made what i would call significant progress on the small details. Very close to having the testing texture done. I will probably get a beta out to some of the teams because the light poles will have to be manually added in sandbox and that will take some time. As well as if groups would like to work on 3d crowds. I personally dont like that, but understand some folks do. So yeah i will post here when i get something together for a beta.

    Alright well just to help keep myself motivated here is a small update.

    I spent a good bit of time making the underside of the overhangs look correct. Can't see from this render, but it is prominent from the track when driving. I need to work on making some of those areas appear darker, because there really isn't much there, and I don't want that to look out of place. I figure it can be hidden with shadows. :)

    So modeling wise I need to do the cut out for the handicap area in the center checkered section, add some supports for the checkered section to help close that area off and create an area for darkness and shadows to hide the lack of details in the model, and figure out a low poly solution to the lack of stairs in the top media building. On either end of the building it has stairs in those 3 walls sticking out. More than likely the spotter stands on top will be axed. They are far too detailed and not really important visually at least for nr2003.

    and here is the handicap seating area I need to make still.

    [​IMG]

    You can really see how dark and well hidden the underside of the checkered area really is. I need to replicate that in my model! :D

    Also in the above render you can see the nearly completed texture. Only one row of seating needs the injector openings added. o_O

    Good news if they ever repaint the seats I have this entire thing flatten mapped which means no repeating patterns. Every facet can be painted correctly! :cool: :eek:

    Alright well back to work! :rolleyes:

    so good eye on that!

    Yeah i dont have it placed exactly correct yet. Will go over that in the video to accompany the beta next week. It is a little set back because there are stair cases in front of it as well
