    I still wonder if this track is going to be laser scanned twice...!

    The answer seems obvious to me. It is not logical for the cost and time to redo the track scanning.

    They might not have to, actually. They say Silverstone will be resurfaced before the 2019 F1 race weekend, which is 12-14 July. The Blancpain race is at 12th of May.
    It kind of depends on whether they resurface it before or after the Blancpain race.

    Unlikely, I think. I'm not sure if Kunos are even going to use a scan of the current track surface at all or just rely on what they had from AC. Silverstone already has been repaved in 2018 and the surface has gone to **** within like a month when F1 was there, which is why it's going to be repaved again. Having a scan of the current surface would be interesting though.

    You can bet that, if not all tracks, almost all of them are already scanned. I don´t think they´re going to still scanning tracks with only 2 months to go until the 1.0 version is released

    Most likely, but they can't re-scan the track before it is resurfaced :p

    I mean, I hope they re-scan it for the 2019 season, but I don´t know how big their budget is.

    If this was an SMS title they would just get the marketing team to do a "drone scan" :oops::D

    If this was SMS you would be playing broken finished product and already heard bunch of news about new one comming out :D So i am happy they are not.

    On topic tho i would love to have another re-scan..just look at the Paul Ricard, Misano, Zolder and Hungaroring... Tracks are amazing and feel more realistic now idk is this because they are recentlly scaned or it is just they can put more details in the game
    but as we seen Monza,Spa are done..so that probablly means they use old laserscaning data.. And still looks great.. we gonna have to wait and see :)

    EDIT: would be cool as always to just have dev pop up and be like it is gona be like this or that so we dont have to bash our heads will it be old or new :)

    Older data doesn't mean worse data. So long they kept the raw data the point clouds don't suddenly become lower quality forcing them to implement a lower resolution physical surface in-game or whatever.
