No, this is not the announcement of a new texture update. My studies have kept me way too busy in recent years, and after completing them last summer, I now find myself in the situation of having a daytime job and a bit of track texturing here and there in the late hours (like the upcoming Jerez track - see TL Tracks and VirtualR).
I simply do not have the time or energy to work on extra track texture sets, unless I give up that bit of night rest I still have. I'm still around, though, so I haven't disappeared or given up on the simracing and rFactor community. I'm still active, and every now and then you'll see bits of my work popping up here and there, but I doubt I'll ever have the necessary time to work on the kind of track texture updates like I had been doing since early 2001.
Lastly, I want to thank everyone for their support over the years. I would never have been able to keep devoting a huge chunk of my free time in this website and its content without you. Thanks!
