Laser-scanned numbers

We already touched the topic in Stefano’s Livestream preparation article: For the update 1.2, Kunos added the track Zandvoort – as a polished mod instead of from-scratch laserscanned work.

Asking for help in a simracing community with thousands of active users often brings sad results. Not this one: Somehow the complete process went surprisingly well, constructive and even ended with a quite advanced suggestion by Aristotelis – it’s worth thinking about “why”.
