    "Improved AI Nodes" is designed to increase the difficulty of CPUs by refining the racing line and fixing key areas that cause cars to crash/spin out. Only AI nodes are touched. CPU performance is also dependent on the level of AI parameter optimization, so the overall challenge depends on what cars are the opponents. These new nodes should provide a moderate challenge for even experienced players. Improved nodes are not fully compatible with multiplayer and will tag the track as "CHT"; therefore, please disable this installation before racing online.

    If anybody would like to make modifications to my stock track edits, feel free to do so. Please just notify me of your intent on RVW or through Discord. For custom tracks I have modified, please ask their respective creators for permission.


    Original Tracks

    It has taken me approximately three months, but I have finished editing the nodes for all vanilla tracks in the game. Admittedly, these are not perfect nodes given the immense variety in cars from slow to fast, quirky to mundane. Some tracks are simply harder to make "faster" than others due to the use of pickups and the CPU's tendency to place hazards at certain locations. One would need to design nodes specific to car rating to optimize performance at the expense of compatibility.


    G_J Tracks

    A total of 6 tracks created by G_J and I_Spy have been edited - Fairground 1 and 2, Home 1 and 2, and Hospital 1 and 2. Unlike with some of my older releases, more effort has been put into making multiple pathing options for the CPU where appropriate. Rooftops 1 is not included due to difficulty obtaining consistent performance across multiple car ratings. I feel it is appropriate to leave Downtown 1 and 2 alone due to (1) their newness and (2) the overall quality of the nodes thanks to the efforts of Kipy.

    This installation contains no backup files.



    Manual installation recommended for better organization and quick activation/deactivation. See preview images for instructions.

    Installing with the RVGL Launcher will download to your "local" pack folder.

  1. Personally I recommend playing with Arcade collision and Catchup on. It allows for much more close-packed racing than simulation since Re-volt’s AI system is very basic (cars follow the track racing line as best as they could, no situational awareness).

  2. This Track Mod is pretty nice, it also simulate how playing on multiplayer feels like. At first, you may think that this Track Mod will make the gameplay decent but as soon as you install in on your RVGL files this is where it gets real fuckin’ intense. I mean even tho most of the AI at the rear positions of the start crashes as soon as they moves (as usual), the ones infront are litterady uncatchable, they’re litteral god damn rally drivers. Like i litterady can’t be in first position, it’s nearly impossible for me to be it. But to be honest it’s mostly because i need to get better at playing Re-Volt, it’s been a while since i haven’t played Re-Volt. Also if you’re new on Re-Volt and you want to get better at the game you really should install this on your RVGL. It’s less boring and more challenging.

  3. Yes, I’ve been working on them now after getting permision from Xarc. I will be releasing them as a batch like with G_J/I_Spy’s tracks, so it will take a while. I plan to continue to add other tracks from other creators over time.

  4. Suggestion for adding some of the Xarc’s tracks if you got their permission? (Junkyard tracks, Airport tracks, Game Room tracks and few others)

  5. Maybe rooftops. I will need to check with rodik about it first.

    I pushed the original PC tracks as a pack first due to time constraints in the future; I am unsure if I will have time and energy to make rooftops, and I wanted to release a cumulative pack before I get busier.

  6. I was waiting for you to finish all the tracks so I could play your “Improved AI Nodes” with their cups.
    This pack comes at the right time (-:
    Maybe you should provide a backup folder for the original .fan files in your download.
    Great & Nice work!
