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.
