When you do that, are you modifying the base track or adding an extra layout, like the OSRW pit boxes?

I can do it both ways. Adding stuff can always be done by introducing a new model but to remove stuff I need to edit the original track.
It's certainly better to add layouts. That way you don't stuff up checksums on original tracks and so on.

No problems there. I leave the original untouched, any edited versions are renamed. The new layouts use models_'layoutname'.ini to reference untouched .kn5 and/or edited versions with unique names.

Please to be asking one of our League affiliated servers to rotate these altered tracks for testing purposes.
As always the above links always contain the latest versions.

Croft updated.
Some meshes didn't meet.
Speed bumps now come bloody close to killing the car, however the concrete filled drums now move.
Rumble strips now have sound.
The outside of the back straight is now marked off track and has way less grip so no more cheating. ???
Marshall posts now have Marshalls. :-\

is the west track of Bilster Berg meant to have 40 grids also like the other 2 layouts ?

No, only sixteen as there is no pitlane to speak of. I can easily put more in but it won't look so good. Of course once on track that doesn't matter. I might delete the clubhouse and have everyone park there like they were in a carpark. Pitstops will never work but it's a tiny little layout so an enduro there probably wouldn't work anyway.

Bathurst updated. Original, Mirrored and Reversed layouts.
Delete previous versions of acu_bathurst.
Although the original track remains untouched I have needed to rearrange the folder order to get these layouts to show in the Server Manager.
Should not cause online mismatches but will need testing to confirm.

Ah, I wondered why some layouts don't appear in the server manager. What's the requirement for the folder order?

I haven't tested this as I don't run a server.
Each layout in its own subfolder under the tracks main folder.(and likewise for 'ui')
Server Manager seems to see a track in the main folder and not go any deeper to find extra layouts. With all the layouts in their own subfolder under the main folder it seems to find them.
