Absurd Race Tracks Pack


A custom races that take place & go through some of the unusual places in rockport

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 get pretty annoying
Minimap is also critical for these races so dont turn it off, the reason was because of the issues below
As for the East Factory race you have to go through the white racing line first then the green one in order to finish the race
To make these races appear in quick races you need to set ShowHiddenTracks to 1 in Extra Options

Since there are not much barriers available to cover these tracks it can make the ai randomly retarded like doing brake check or donut drifting when they got thrown outside of the race track so for now to at least overshadow 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)

I think you should add a race so we can tour the whole map, it would be fun

oh I forgot to answer your question @DeviantManturoff, old bridge area is unstable for race so it's not possible plus it got blocked by a boulder on default

crashing and standstill ai issue should be fixed now
as for the races not showing up on quick races, I didn't encounter that issue on my end but I made some changes that should fix it and let me know if it still not showing up

For those who ask how add the races in QR, just follow the instruction of Custom Race Pack 1.0, also available on NFSMods.

You have to add manually in VLTED.

Any fix for the urban grand tour where the opponents are in a standstill even after the race starts?
