    So I wanted to turn 2017 texas spring (nrtracks) to a night track and dover 2017 night to day...

    how does one go about gathering up the missing mips/3dos that it fails to load. Its not for public release, without permission, just personal use. Using this as a learning tool

    If you're using a track that already exists that you're able to load in nr2k3, then it's very likely nothing is missing. Sandbox is finicky when it comes to how your files are set up in order to open it in Sandbox. I just answered the same problem here: https://stunodracing.net/index.php?threads/sandbox-not-opening-track-files.4625/

    Start there and let us know if you have additional problems or questions.

    Thank you. I'll give it a go. Just had to step back for a few days.

    Sorry for the delayed response, life has been busy and unkind the past few days.

    Short answer is to follow the link that I provided and watch some of JRock's helpful videos. There are also many, many resources already available around the web.

    In terms of finding the assets that are missing it's likely an issue of poor project directory setup. Often is the case that the shared folder mips/3dos are not properly setup in the Sandbox project directory.

    Example directory setup:
    [Sandbox Projects]
    ----[Texas 2018]
    ----------**Unzip your track.dat and put files in here. Your sandbox track file is here as well (ex Texas 2018.ptf).**
    ----[Pocono 2018]
    ----------**Unzip your track.dat and put files in here. Your sandbox track file is here as well (ex Pocono 2018.ptf).**
    ----[Shared]
    ----------**unzip your shared.dat and put files in here**
