Outdated Road Atlanta - LIDAR Edition 1.01

The LIDAR version of this beautiful US race track

  1. Ewanc
    Road Atlanta is a 2.5 mile (4 km) road course located just north of Braselton Georgia. Home to the Petit Le Mans, as well as AMA motorcycle racing, and smaller events throughout the year. It has 12 turns, including the famous "Esses" between turns three and five; and Turn 12, a downhill, diving turn.

    Now you'll get precise apples-to-apples dings in your pickup with super realistic terrain based on LIDAR. Re-imagined with BeamNG.drive in mind, so it looks and functions great and runs fast. The graphics are new and optimized to run nice at below the game's minimum hardware specs, but a budget gaming setup is still recommended for some features.

    The AI has also been "persuaded" to follow the best line around the track and will cut across curbs and travel realistically as possible; no guarantee for their driving quality but 0.11 and future AI updates should make this concept even more functional.




    Silky smooth pavement overlaying the hilly real life terrain.

    All new detailed 3D elements; mesh curbs, walls and crash fencing.

    Miles of paved service roads frame the venue.

    Includes additional track side objects from past rFactor releases and many improvements to mine; including cross-able bridges and detailed platforms.

    Dynamic night lighting, for 24 hour racing.

    Plenty of time trial scenarios with reverse and rolling starts for limitless possibilities.

    Here's an add-on for real world banners, for a more authentic look.

    Next up:
    • Around the release of 0.12 I will redo the AI paths, especially at turn 6 (the stop bug) and 9 (slow)
    • some graphical improvements.
    • Longer "race season" campaign

    Fantastic work, such an iconic track! I'm really hoping for more US tracks, Virginia International Raceway (VIR) wink wink? :) I'd pay money for that track, it's so underrepresented in any sim/game. Thank you very much for your effort on this track!

    great map to race on, However, the scenario's I've played dont work very well.. It's probably just the AI, but in the scenario "track showcase", the AI car you're supposed to follow spins out after the straight. he also doesn't corner too well. and the "overtaking challenge" is nearly impossible, yet set to medium difficulty. you have to cut every corner and race 60% of the race on grass to even stand a chance, and even then, by the time youve caught up the last car will be spawned just after the straight.

      Thanks for the heads up, the AI worked fine when I released it 2 years ago so its news to me. There's been many AI updates to the game that have broken it. Ill give it a look-see soon - having free time for the first time in 3 years.

      Be safe out there everyone!

    Still loving this great track. I am gonna make another video now that I am better at everything. Very good use of LIDAR. An environment that feels complete and fit for purpose. It can accommodate many things and is overall very authentic feeling.

    you did an amazing job on this one, the track feels just like it felt on Forza. There are a couple of curbs in the last section of the track that sometimes pop the tires, otherwise it is basically perfect.
