After working on Croft 2007 and fixing some errors done or left over from the conversion, I moved on to Highlands Motorsport Park and again came across various errors with the conversion. So I looked into converting a track myself and here is my first effort.

Croft for AC from feels3 for rF2

Four layouts:
Full
Club A
Club B
Circa 1995

A few things I'm not satisfied with, let me know if you notice any.
The only criticism I  have is the look of the trees ( two plane only image) other than that, to me it drives , feels and looks very good. I always thought it was a major undertaking to convert a track, did it take you very long ?

Glad you noticed the trees. rFactor2 has trees that turn to face you, but they can't be converted(as far as I know). I'm still comparing other AC tracks to figure out better trees.
The armco glimmers a tad but not sure if its any worse than other tracks.

As to how long, well I'm still working on it, learning as I go for about five days now. The simple conversion is only a handful of hours but then the never ending tweaking comes into play and I like to replicate all available layouts thus adding to the workload.

Cheers

A real labour of love, and striving for perfection, I could certainly name some other Rf2 tracks for conversion when you have it down to a fine art, great work so far thanks.

As team boss I'd say get back to practice, but you're kicking my arse so, carry on. :-[ ;)

Name a few and I'll see if they rock my boat.
Lime Rock Park and Toban Raceway Park, it took me a while to work out which ones were not already available for AC .

I like the sound of Monza without the first chicane!

... Toban Raceway Park, it took me a while to work out which ones were not already available for AC .

Toban uploaded. A well done rF1 version was available so I took the high detail road mesh and incorporated it into a conversion from rF2. Still learning shaders so the lighting may be odd at times. Long, Medium and Short versions and reverse of each available.
Brilliant, thanks heaps will give it a try today.

Hey Seanus, I don't know if this is possible or not but I thought I'd throw it out there. Do you know if it's possible to create a point to point layout out of a section of an existing circuit?

I've been wanting to re-create the hillclimb courses used at Mount Panorama (linked below). Are you able to help or point me in the right direction to find out how to achieve this myself?
