    After much anticipation, mostly by us, HalfwayGlad and I are excited to release our first collaborative track, Chicagoland 2018 BB-MC.

    We have prepared both a Day and Night version, all in beautiful HD texturing thanks to the remarkable work of Michael Ciarlo (HalfwayGlad). miller_Deck.jpg

    When I click on the link all I see is images of the track and there's no download link. This looks amazing thank you very much!

    Is there any other way to download these tracks? For whatever reason, zip extractor isn't working for me.

    You try WinZip or WinRar. I think there's also something called 7zip?

    Thank you guys for your work! Love it!
    I thought that there might be a certain fps drop because of the big textures, but I could not really notice one compared to the base track :)

    Yeah, I run on a pretty mid level laptop and I’m still able to get the same amount of FPS as I do on the 2017 version. On the night version I do notice a slight drop, but it’s still not as bad as I expected. Amazing work guys, looks beautiful.

    If the frame drop seems to be heading into Turn 3 where you're facing the sun, I'd expect the issue is from the solar reflections (I forget the actual Option name). Turning this off mostly resolves the problem. I've noticed it at other night tracks as well.
