Post Request for Accurate Sha Tin Course
Hi all,

I realize that making tracks takes a lot of effort but would anyone out there be able to do an accurate Sha Tin course?
One with correct chutes?

Thanks

Definitely will be working on this - very much like Sha Tin and think there is a lot I can do with it. Will start it tonight and try and finish it up tomorrow.

Thank you MJ!

I still use your wonderful Flemington, Randwick and Rosehill tracks. They are excellent.

I don't usually play the US game but will be adjusting the showcase files.

Do you have one or two US tracks that you are quite chuffed about?

Kind Regards and many thanks.

John

Churchill Downs seems to be the one everyone loves.

I personally love Saratoga, Lone Star Park, Gulfstream Park, and Monmouth Park from the US game. Also try out my new Meydan and Ascot.

I always love to bring a sense of realism into SO6 and courses give me that option. Now that I can spend more time on each course, and have more experience, I think they are coming out much better than many of my original courses.

I got it down to take anywhere from 1.5 - 7 hours. This ended up being about a 3 hour job. Almost done with Sha Tin - just need to export it and I'll post it up in this thread later tonight.

MJ,

Have you ever noticed Woodbine track size is not accurate. The main dirt track is a mile around with a 7 furlong chute.
In all versions of Woodbine in SO 6 the dirt track is 7 furlongs around with a 6 furlong chute. It is a great track and deserves an accurate rendition.

Thanks

All Done! Here is the download for Sha Tin: http://www.mediafire.com/file/9klp731oe2wv6cw/Sha_Tin_Course.zip/file


------------
And I have thought about doing Woodbine one day. Maybe that should be my next endeavor.

What would be even better is if you could record the entire process and put it on youtube. I would literally redevelop most of the UK tracks If I knew how.

I'll have to see what I can do for Longchamp. If the game has a stand that looks very similar to that if the new one at Longchamp, I'll give it a go - if not, then remaking it won't make Longchamp renovated look right. But I'll see what I can do do.

As for videos, maybe? Each course I make is unique and the process that I take is just as unique. Every course requires different ways of working depending up what is in it and how much detail you want for the final course.

Perhaps if you did a one off track with at least 2 chutes, that would be good.
Perhaps the next one you are thinking of doing anyway.
That way I would even have another crack.
The video & audio is a must for me as I would classify myself as one who needs an idiots guide.
There are so many other Australian tracks that need correcting. Sandown, Ascot, Morphettville to name a few.

Cheers MJ
