View Full Version : Circuit de Catalunya Barcelona, missing road alphatextures

Barcelona was one of my favorite tracks in pcars1. So I was shocked to see the state barcelona is in right now in pcars2.

No skidmarks at all and a horrible generic roadtexture that is repeating every 5 meters.

Please SMS bring the track to an acceptable level of quality.

It's sad to see that a lot of content was simply rushed. :(

nobody agrees? do I have a bug on my catalunya track?

Screen shots will make all the difference to your thread

well anybody can load the track and will see that it looks totally bland and empty. I repeat, NO skidmarks on the whole track whatsoever! there is no screenshot necessary to show you nothing, is it?

I don't own the game (yet), so if you show me/us some screenshots it's a lot better, to understand the quality of the track...

ok, I thought I show you pcars1 and pcars2.

looks like the alphatexture layer is under the road surface I guess...

Run 30 AI round the track for 60 minutes and see how it looks...

That may change the texture but the Track is never clean in reallife and the monotone Roadtexture with visible repeating patterns is just unfinished rushed work...
both pictures are in private test/single free practice.

btw the Formula C was a lot of Fun in pcars1... boring in pcars2 :p standard setup is way off, even 4th gear is to long and 5th and 6th never used. even a really lazy tester should have noticed...

see the pattern in the roadtexture, its only a few meters of texture that is repeating over and over.

after patch 1.2.0 still no skidmark alphatexture on the track, please SMS, this is an easy fix :(

I had the same issue. It looks really bad.
Then i had an automatic complete reload of the game and now all is much better.
The base texture is still the same (you can see the pattern) but there are skidmarks.

Reload the game.

By the way i had the same issue with F1 2017 and the same unexpected complete steam reload which fixed things.

It's easy for us to think everything is an easy fix but I'm sure there's a lot more than meets the eye behind this. I will take a look after work to see if it looks the same to me - but I would assume it does.

I wouldn't mind having some skidmarks added if that's the case, but I sincerely doubt it's a high priority to fix. If worth the time to fix at all.
