I wish to collect infos about editing AIW files in GTRevo using the Rfactor AIW editor. I hope all track editors might contribute with their experiences.
I have been trying to use the program. It is quite easy to change AI lines. Best way is to use the command CREATE CURVE (a tutorial is included in the editor).
What I still do not get is that sometimes AI is strangely slow at some WP immediately BEFORE or AFTER a curve created with the command (while being consistent throughout the curve).
Also the program states that WP_POS should not be changed (thus modifying only the ALPHA value which is supposed to be the real AI line) but I found that if the WP is too far from the ALPHA position the AIs have some troubles takin curves.
Another value I tried to modify is WP_CHEAT (hoping to speedup AI at some spots) but it did not sort any effect
So far I am able to draw correct AI lines but the misterious slow behaviors at some spots on the track (like unnecessarily reducing gears just after a curve) are still unsolved....
I miss A LOT of informations about editing AIW so I hope everybody involved with this topic will write down some suggestions....
