Figured I would tackle this to add to my Late Model season. Milwaukee still in progress but waiting for the ARCA Father's Day race to see some new billboards and wall paints.

I have another back surgery coming June 2nd so I'd like to have this done before then. I plan on a release date of June 1st.

Man, you wanna talk about a track that could use a facelift, Hickory is certainly one of them! Looking forward to seeing your progress!

Beautiful, bud! I can now take this project of of my PST "To-Do" list. ;)

Hopefully you didn't start it already. If you want to privately share what tracks you are working on currently then I'll make sure not to overlap any. I'm working on Hickory (30%), Milwaukee 75%), and Motor Mile (15%).

I'm also in the progress of making haulers for all the LMSC cars I made that will go out with the Hickory track on June 1st. There are a lot of white trailers but I'll put an extra little touch on each one just for effect. ;)

Is this a built-from-scratch track... or an edit of an existing one?
Do you have another suggestion? I’m basically taking it all the way down to the “studs” so the geometry is what the most important to me. Should I do the PWF version instead? I haven’t raced the track enough to know the quirks. I just know it is on the CARS Tour schedule and it looked like it could use a refresher. I’m open to all suggestions and ideas to make this successful for all of us. :)

In my opinion, there is nothing wrong with the 2006 versions made by Chris "OModified" O'Shell from the Dave Noonan N3 conversions. I worked with Chris on many short track projects back in the day and he has been long gone from the NR2003 track making scene for years now. I'm pretty sure he wouldn't mind you editing his track.

Making a brand new version built from scratch is going to add a ton of time to the process. Especially with you being fairly new to the track building process... and especially considering the very different challenges making a short track from scratch can present. I would recommend that you stay with your original plan of doing a graphics face-lift of the existing day and night versions and updating the 3dos, etc. Just my 2 cents worth. ;)

Does anyone have a way to get in tough with the APT track guys? I tried but didn't get a response for the contact info in the readme files.

I assume you mean the AI and race LP lines? Those can be easily adjusted. I can help with that if you need. I'm building Southside Speedway right now in Chesterfield, VA and almost have it complete

Blaise, you are building Motor Mile?? That's awesome. I worked there for several years. I have the current nr2003 version, but it is outdated (no drag strip nearby, sponsor board updates, etcs). I edited the one available (tried to contact the guy and couldn't get ahold of him) and made a night version with better AI lines, if you want mine as a starting point.
