About This File
DISCLAIMER (If you can really call it that)
This is a big file. You might experience some lag or not be able to run the track at all if you have your settings to the max. However, for your convenience, this upload includes an FPS version, which undoubtedly does not look as nice, but will get the job done for competitions as it aligns perfectly with the full version of the track.
If you are running the FPS version, and for some reason you still are getting lower than about 40 frames, then I highly encourage you to upgrade to .4.6 or higher. When being tested, I found that your frame rate drastically improves on this version (even when running at the high quality). For example, when spawning two high quality trucks in, I was still getting 80 frames on .4. With that scenario on .38, the game would literally crash and I wouldn't be able to spawn in. This is why I highly recommend just using .4 to avoid all lag altogether.
Finally, last thing I wanted to state was that I know there's a lot of "unnecessary" verts in the track. I would develop a new version of the track to try and get rid of some of these, but I have simply lost interest after working on this over the time of seven months (took two off for personal reasons). For this reason, I am open to sending any track makers or anyone at all the full .blend of the track. Then, if the lag-issue really is that great, it can be fixed by someone a bit more eager and willing. However, I'm 99% percent sure this won't be an issue, just wanted to clarify as other tracks of mine have been reported for immense lag that no one I talked to or tested with experienced. Thanks for reading this and enjoy the track!

What's New in Version 2
Now includes a Rigs of Rods race for both the Yellow and Green lanes! The track will automatically time you while taking a pass. Have fun!
- Once you start a race, you need to finish it in order to reset the timer. This should only be a problem if you role or red light. If this happens, you need to drive thru the finish line to end the current timer.
- The invisible checkpoint boxes are still collideable as I could not figure out a way to make them not. This should only be a problem if you get off course over the finish. You'll most likely experience this once or twice.
