Their isnt a full tutorial or guide how to make a track.

The first thing you need to do is a .dat file with Gp4builder, you do this
using an original game .dat file located on in the circuits folder of the game.
Their many things to do their not just the layout of the track but also the cc-line,
the camaras, etc etc.

Second, based on the .dat file their is a function to create 3D.
You get a basic layout of how it looks like but their is a lot of work to be done
asigning textures,the sun position, shadows, importing 3d models of objects, etc etc etc.

I opened a .dat file and I immediately understood that it is not easy, but starting from nothing seems to me an almost impossible task. I'll see what to do. Thanks anyway.

Dont be discouraged beacause all track makers from past and present do the same. We start from scratch and with a
lot of patience we get to the result wanted. Making tracks is not an easy task for anyone, but like i said patience is required.

@petrus the tutorial is far from completion at least so far.
Paulo Blanco started well but unfortunally he has not posted again another video,
i sure hope he continues because his tutorial will be the historical record for new track makers
when the old ones like my self wont be around anymore.
