v1.4.1.0

- Added: Option to export only some components (eg. export Terrain only).
- Added: Option to export components as seperate individual files. This helps where FBX file size was becoming increasingly large.
- Added: New "test" button on settings window for easy testing of Google API functions.
- Added: Failed Google requests will dump error messages to the Log.txt file (run RTB with "\log" parameter - don't include quotes).
- Fixed: Export of Walls would fail for non-AC projects.

1.4.0.1 - Walls and more

Latest release has a bugfix for this problem that only occurred for some users. There are some minor improvements, but nothing radical.

I forgot to make a news announcement for the previous large release. That was Walls. See the video for how that works ...

There are several things I have planned for future releases, although progress on these have been slow. Family commitments, a new job (with long hours and longer commute) have seen my spare time plummet. Programming on a bouncing bus is difficult! So the speed of new releases will be slower, however development has not stopped (as I see some people suggest).

As usual, please use the forums and help each other out with questions. Collectively there are many more people out there with far greater knowledge than just me. ;)

About This Software

Race Track Builder is a software design tool that has a simple, easy to use interface that allows you to build fantasy race tracks or use Google Maps data to create real-life terrain and roads.

For examples of the current features take a look at the TUTORIALS.

Free Upgrades

Additional functions that have already been added:

  • Expansion Packs - more textures, materials and objects have already been added since the initial release and more content is on its way.
  • Objects - trees, signs, barriers, pit stands, cones, tyres, fences - all can now be added into your track.
  • Complex Objects - parent-child relations create a more complex object with greater variety.
  • String-Objects - Make long lines (strings) of objects and quickly move them about as your design evolves.
  • Start/Pits/Timing Positions - Set Grid/Pit positions and Timing Gates that are exported to AC.

Additional functions will be added as free upgrades as they are developed. Many of the BTB functions will be integrated into the new interface and many entirely new features are planned as upgrades occur each month.

  • Objects - more content and improved interface
  • String-Objects - more content and align-to-track tool
  • Walls - edit the cross-section and customise the look of walls.
  • Intersections - pre-textured sections will make intersections a cinch.
  • Expansion Packs (Xpacks) including additional textures, materials, objects, string-object and cross-sections definitions.
  • ... and much more.

RTB exports to the Autodesk FBX format which can then be loaded into 3d modelling tools for export into games with a little more work. This opens up RTB to more game developers and this in turn will generate more RTB content (XPacks) for people to use across all types of games. In time export direct to game may be added for some titles but initially the focus is on supporting many titles.

The first title with specific support is Assetto Corsa with materials and shaders created to replicate the shading used. The landscape uses Multilayering shading with support for direct modification of the underlying texture. When targeting Assetto Corsa the export prepares the objects ready to be imported into the AC Editor, generating the Configuration file so that materials and textures are applied as they appearred in RTB.
