@all: Thank you all for your kind words and support. They motivate me to keep doing this!

no, you're right - it's not from netkar pro. but it's the only nice ingame shot of the hockenheimring I found. if someone can provide a nice ingame shot of it from nkp I'd gladly update it with it.

I voted for blue even if from
an aesthetic point of view I would prefer red, but I agree with the
idea to reserve RED for original Tracks and BLUE for add-on
I also prefer the blue ones for that reason (differenciate between originals and customs). Also with the red ones there is another problem: although I can try to immitate them well they aren't exactly like the originals and there remains an "odd" look to them (in my humble opinion). It might be related to the effect of the uncanny valley
where the brain refuses something similar because it recognizes the subtle differences to the original. That's why, personally, I'd go with blue. It didn't take too much effort to convert them to red so I made them also available in red. If I find the time
I'll make them all
available in both colors so you can pick your style, but blue comes first.

I didn't even know there was such a separation. I just bought the game a week ago and began downloading custom tracks, stumbled over this site along the way and got started on the screens after I noticed they didn't have propper ones. For me it doesn't make a difference if they're *.nko or *.kto so I just go with the idea "blue=custom" and "red=original", everything beyond that just makes it unnecessary complicated in my opinion. Most likely I'll be able to provide both color versions of each track in the list, so you can pick the colors for whatever reasons you choose.
why doesnt he just release two packs of the different colours?
Ain't that exactly what I'm doing? I released blue ones and red ones. As soon as they are all done I'll pack them up like that.
For those who can't wait until then I release each of them as soon as they're finished.
If someone can provide nice overview screenshots of the tracks in M Carey's list on the first page of this thread, that would be very helpful!If someone can provide nice overview screenshots of the tracks in M Carey's list on the first page of this thread, that would be very helpful!If someone can provide nice overview screenshots of the tracks in M Carey's list on the first page of this thread, that would be very helpful!
Recently I noticed the replay function might be helpful for that. But maybe the editor
is even better for aerial shots. I don't know, I have no idea how to run the editor.
