Post Masking Winning Posts to add personalisation to your courses
Hi to all the course designers out there.
With the release of Starters Orders 7 getting closer I have been improving my course designs by adding personalised images in the racecourse editor to mask the games default red and white winning posts.
I got this inspiration from MJ's great Flemington winning post decoration.
I really think that even though they are just images with added transparency, they still add a lot of character.

Here are some of my creations below.
A couple are just outback Australian courses from areas where I grew up.

Thank you MJ.
I really would like to make 3D models for these decorative areas around the winning posts but it seems we can't.
in fact I cant even find out if Starters Orders was made with a well known 3D game engine like Unity.
I mean how good would it to be to be able to recreate real grandstands from the past and present?

I was also hoping for a combined schedule for Australian racing as I'm tired of having to put my Aussie jumps racing on the English jumps schedule to work.
Mark says it will happen during the beta but I'm guessing it will be very low priority while all these other gameplay issues are sorted.

I agree with MJ these are amazing. The few times I messed around with making courses I always got a little discouraged at how the finish line area needed to have what the track has in real life. You've made it happen. Nice work.
