PS Valstagna - Reverse the scariest road to the down - 09

Hi all, I want to present a reverse version of PS Valstagna. The same configuration, but an updated track will be prepared for use on all plugins.
In my experience road is quite scary to drive very fast, but the same fun and challenging driving.
I will hope everyone can enjoy it.

Not too much left for the final target of the donation amount which will allow share track content with everyone for all plugins and for online and offline usage, if you want to support my creation and be part of it please press the donation button!

Because the main donation flow is slow, progress bar I update twice a week. All is fine all your donation will be calculated!

PS Valstagna - Be together with everyone - 08

Hello everyone, I'm RallyG since 2011 I working on the new RBR content. I created, for the public, 25 virtual rally tracks, it's 122 km of rally roads. All my works and tutorials you can find there on this blog page.

At this time, I ask the whole RBR racing community (from all online plugins) to support my current project with a donation. Rally stage Valstagna. We need to fill some financial gaps and we want to continue on this project with new content. So, we need your help.

I decided, to give the offer to all community, and it will be included:
1. PS Valstagna, regular version 12,8km
2. Reverse version (in the short time term)
3. And will in producing a new historical gravel version of Valstagna. Will modded and properly prepared. (maybe the reverse version too)

For that reason in current plugins - RSF, RBRPro, and RBRTM, we will allow one online-only test tournament with a few tries to test the stage and you can decide want or not support this project and future works.
I think that the maximal donation amount must be no more than 5 EU. So, it not to be a big pressure in financial ways for everyone, who wants to support me and my projects
There link on my blog page where you can find the donation button at the top of the right.

Our target is 3000 Eu, if possible we want to collect his sum in one month period and after this content will be free in all plugins for online and offline usage (without any discrimination for all World RBR community)
I know that at the beginning price looks big but after 4 years intensive of work and dividing the sum by months it's 62 Eu in one month whats not fill the electricity bill. That is why I ask for support from the community and want to stay motivated to create new virtual content.

About my future plans. I planning to finish the Saalahti gravel stage (which will be a priority) and I think about another Italian road from the Bassano rally - the Rubbio stage.
Remember only 5 Eu, it's not a lot but can do a lot!
I will be happy if you are all with me and I can be with you and we all moving in the same direction.

PS Valstagna - FINAL version v1.0 - 07

The first version of a long story.

Hi all, I am happy to announce the presentation of the first version of this nice historic rally place. This was a long story that started in 2019 and was planned to be a short trip for 6 months. But now 4 years on it and still have what to do. We had many changes in our lives, Covid, changes in our families, and work. In the middle of project I change the main game exporter from Wallaby to Blender RBR addon (from Tom Smalley) it was a big challenge for me and take a lot of time, but also opened more new possibilities. Sometimes looks like jobs never end,  but now  we are there.

In first version only dry surfaces, M are dedicated only for dry surfaces and good weather condition. N version for dry, damp and wet (different surfaces will be included in the next release) and have night, heavy,  fog, rainy and no rain weather conditions. 

Next release will be reverse version and different surfaces textures.

Anyway, Valerio Costa is the author of this idea, and with his passion and support this nice place will be open for all virtual racing community.
If you, was real driver who tested this place in real life, I must disappoint you. The result is not 100% identical, depending on the situation that was available in the creation process. Valstagna road is one of the most difficult places, ever seen, with very limited available proper geometry data. Valerio did all road measures that were possible, but anyway lots of data was taken from the video. And actually, all works look like a love song, about Valstagna road. The love song is not the same as the real object but had the same strong and heat feeling. So, if you like the real road I hope you the same will like this replica too. There are thousands and thousands of working hours all our skills and passion put there.
Also big thanks to all guys who supported us with their knowledge like Jan, Tom, Bee, Krzysztof, Aleksi, a group of testers, and many others...

And last, if you like it don't forget to support all that makes new content for your passion! A real donation is always better than thousands of words.
      PS. The stage will available for all online plugins

PS Valstagna - How all is growing - 04

Hi folks, hot summertime and with the weather, the same with jobs. I have a target to finish this project this summer, so a lot of jobs.
I end jobs by placing the biggest vegetation - trees, and bushes. So the next step will be for the grass and spectators with a rally fiesta atmosphere. Houses far from the road (at the end of the road), not will be easy. Also need more investigation into road texture I'm not happy with it, will see. Of course final step - is an optimization and baking shading.
Medcenat - Valerio - promised that this stage will be available for all racing communities, so I hope all can enjoy fo it.
If you want to support me and my creation, which really is an expensive process, feel free to press donate.
See you at the next race!

PS Valstagna - New full path - 03

Well, there is a full path for this SS. Lots of jobs are waiting. I am not fully happy with how the looks road shape, GPS was not accurate, so needs lots of manual tweaks. Add of course last brush will vegetation placing. Sorry for my bad driving, lots of time was without experience...
One big progress there was I switched from the old Blender version to the new one and adapt all projects to the new RBR exporter addon (thanks to Tom). It took a lot of time, but now I can move forward...
All at this time, see you later

PS Valstagna - New look - 02

 Hi all, some small update there, but big progress inside. First, of all, the ending works with ground mesh in the whole lengths of a road. All important road objects are added and time to dance with vegetation for the final look.
Most fancy things, I switch from old Blender 2.79 b (which I love) into a new RBR add-on (on Blender 3.01), thanks to Tom for your brilliant work. Now adapting my track files for new features and moving forward. Update track look in pictures...
