Welcome everyone.

Here is a new project I have started today called "The Pits" :)

For all you drive mad piston heads, gas guzzlers, tarmac suckers, rubber burners, petrol drinkers, race lovers. I am going to build a full pits stop and starting grid for you to enjoy and use.

I will post each update and new build I do, as I do it, to show everyone the progress.

Everything that will be in the scene at the end will be available as an object for you to move, re-texture and resize as you see fit.

Thank you for reading and I hope you will enjoy watching this scene build, come together. :)

Adrian

    Update for a pit box.

    the pit box is exported as a single object with the colours and is 122 KB five of them grouped together and exported as a single object are 649KB.

    This is minus the seats and computers (which I will make after all the structures) probably best to add them as accessories ;)

    I am going to try and keep the file size down as much as I can.

    It's looking really good so far. I look forward to seeing the finished version. :-)

    Eagerly awaiting the opportunity to download this... and to list it in the Free Autos list.

    I have some good news and bad news.

    I thought I would pack the scene as it stood, to test the size pack.

    As it is with no roof, packed as one solid object its over 780MB !!!!!

    So much for trying to keep it small eh!

    The good news is that, as a packed single object. All the file names are listed ok and the textures can be changed easily enough.

    Now Share CG wont host a file that big, so now I am stumped.

    I will continue tomorrow with the grandstand roof and see how big it is all together.


    (additional.....)
    As a zipped file it is 113Mb :)

    So I will upload it as it stand tonight, for people to try out.

    Then over the time I will add the other stuff later..:)

    and the roof goes up.
    :)

    (additional)
    As much as I like the look of this roof, I am unfortunately going to have to simplify it and remove the leather texture. As everything grinds to a halt when its in the scene.
    :(

    I have simplified the roof.

    it does not look as good as the leather multi sheet one, but it does its job ok.

    I have also added a clock and the pit lights :)

    Not much of an update, but...

    I have added some scaffolding at the back under the roof.

    Tomorrow, I will break the whole thing down and create three separate scenes (Grandstand) (Starting Grid and pit box's) and (Pit Garages).

    This way people can build a three scene set up, using the grandstand and crowds as a back drop, Which would leave only the (Starting grid and Pit Garages) needed for a scene render.

    hopefully this will make it easier for everyone to handle and move stuff about.

    :)

    I have created the first scene file.

    The Grandstand.

    It is in low detail so people can manage it and easily position there characters for posing.

    The Track

    I decided to make this as (just the track) without the pit control box's.

    This way, the user can create multiple lengths of road :)


    I will make the extras as accessories later on, ie.. the clock and I will add a few things to fill it out a bit :)

    A picture of the two scenes together.

    And I have also made a quick backdrop for people to play around with (I will put this on sharecg as its too big for the forum), I will make a better one tomorrow after I have made the pits.

    I've not had time yet to try this out but judging from the shots, you've done a stellar job. Thanks for posting as a freebie.

    Thanks

    I really appreciate the support.

    To be honest, this is the first ever scene I have made.
    It has been a blast making it and a huge learning curve over the last three days.

    I did not realise it was going to end up as big as it did, but I am glad it turned out the way it did.

    I am happy with it.

    So, I will make a few accessories soon and a few backdrops for people to use (like (crowed) and (distance shots)).

    :)

    Thank you for the support everyone.

    I have been making a few props for the pits scene and couldn't resist making a render of it so far :)

    I am going to make the wheel guns, lollipop and car jack's next

    I won't ask if the big guy on the left is named "Jack"... ;-)

    A great scene you're cooking here, I think I can find a use for it.

    I have made a few more props for the pits.

    I will make two more different static positions for the cables (pulled back out of the way and in position for action)

    Once I have done that I will pack and upload them, probably tomorrow or later this evening.

    Nice. Now the pit's coming alive. Are you going to model the wheels as well?

  • Alpha01Alpha01 Posts: 0
    edited December 1969

    I have made a few pit lane props to use in the pit lane scene.

    Included are

    Car Jack, garage framing, garage framing with props, gun cable with three positions (in use, on floor and pulled back), stop and go lollipop, tyre bench and wheels.

    Some may need resizing or moving in place.

    Thank you all for your support and for downloading.

    Please let me know if there are any mistakes. :)
