3D Racing

The neverending story of my quest to play Formula D in 3D. Updated on occasion.

After much work, I have now finished doing the first pass of the landscape.
It will be a good idea to wait for canned air to get rid of the free leaves, before I take up further gluing/painting, as the flock is everywhere and in all cracks.
After claning it up, my plan is to go over the small spots that need a second touch, and then varnish it with a spray before I start putting on trees.

It turned out that I did not like the fields too much, they have a 'clunky' feel to them, at least for me.
Next time I will need to find another way that gives me a better feeling.

The arrows make the track look a lot more finished than anything else in this update. With them, and the finishing line, the track is now playable.
I am not sure about the finishing line, perhaps it needs another row of checkers on each side before I am happy with it.
As it is, I do not feel they look 'right' in the outer lanes.
Before I do that, I want to paint white dots in the cracks between the outer spaces, though, to see how that will turn out.

A funny effect of the grass is that the landscape seems to have lost the elevation changes that I put some work into creating.
Apart from the 'valley' in the lower left, I may only be able to see the other changes because I know they are there.
I look forward to seeing how it turns out with trees.

Regarding trees, then I will begin construction of those soon. I have some trees at home, but not enough, and after realising how many I need, I decided to start making them myself.
That will likely be the theme of the next update.

Enough talk, pictures!

A nice side effect of the landscape work is that the glare is now gone from the pictures, yeaij (where is he flagwaving smiley, when I need it?)
Still debating with myself if I want to make a new pit building for this track or go with one of the two I have already.
Perhaps something without a top floor, to mirror the status as a short, regional track.

The barren rectangle in the lower left is for the track name and weather stats. I am not sure how to do it yet, but that is where it is going.

Thanks for reading, comments, as always, are most welcome.
If nothing else, they tell me that somebody has read this far
