Absurd Race Tracks


A custom races pack that take place & pass through some unusual places in Rockport
Set ShowHiddenTracks to 1 in ExtOps to make these races also appear in quick races (not required if you select the WorldRaces field modification)

Update 0.7.3:
- Fixed gameplayvault on Urban Grand Tour
- Added back WorldRaces field modification as an optional choice
- Added support for Return of Roger mod
- Added a list of race unlock conditions in the readme

Update 0.7:
- Reorganized all script lines
- Reformatted Map texture to DXT3
- Fixed missing barriers
- Increased difficulty & cash reward in career mode
- Renamed East Factory to East Refinery Loop
- Forest area in Urban Grand Tour is expanded into golf & highway area
- Changed Urban Grand Tour finish line location & unlock condition (now it's available on blacklist 15)
- Added unused green flare fx for some checkpoints
- Added uninstall option

Update 0.4.2:
- Fixed some race code typos
- Removed WorldRaces field modification due to instability

Update 0.4:
- Added missing Urban Grand Tour ai character node (source of the crashing & standstill ai on start issue)
- Resized Children & WorldRaces field to avoid overlapping issue with another custom race mod
- Fixed East Factory 0 cash reward in career mode
- Changed Dockside cash reward value
- Increased Urban Grand Tour pursuit difficulty in career mode

If you have heavy object physics mod like my Prostreet Object Physics or something like that installed, I'd suggest you to to disable it before playing these races otherwise the objects can become pretty annoying
Minimap are also very critical for these races so don't turn it off, below is one of the reasons
For the East Refinery Loop race you have to pass through the white racing line first and then the green one in order to finish the race

Since there are not much barriers available to cover these tracks it can make the ai become randomly retarded like doing brake check or donut drifting when they got thrown outside of the race track so to at least overshadowed this issue all races will have cops in career mode to make the race somewhat challenging

Tools Used:
  • RaceToolkit (MaxHwoy, Trackmaniamatt, RaTT & r033)
  • Binary (MaxHwoy)
  • NFS-VltEd (nfsu360)
  • ExtraOptions (ExtOps Team)
  • Photoshop (Adobe)
  • Notepad++ (Don Ho)
Thanks To:

I can't get the bloody mod to work.

Had previous version installed, and when I try to install this, nothing changes. Even uninstalling it and reinstalling didn't work.

Fucking Hell.

@Nfsboi just follow the steps
@alexisfdsq you can find it on this site for the nfs tool stuff except RaceToolkit which I believe are gone now and no I don't plan on modding the blacklist system
