With the Tokyo Olympics coming in July 2021, I have been inspired to create an athletics ground model.
This is the first part of the athletics ground, consisting of the a model of the running track, marked out areas for high jump, pole vault, shotput, hammer and discus. There are long jump and triple jump facilities, as well as a steeplechase water pool.
The model is of a full size Olympic size ground, but set in a County ground style earth bank. The bank can be replaced with a stadium if someone wishes to model it up, or has a model available.
The competition surfaces have 4 alternative colours and the spectator bank has two alternative grass lengths. 5 times of day are provided as presets. There are a few camera presets, which will be expanded in time.
It is planned to add starting blocks, hurdles, hammer cage, steeplechase jumps, jump mats, etc etc as time progresses to develop it into a fully equipped stadium. As each set of facilities is added, I plan to add poses.

As long as no one is paying attention to detail, this can also be used for high school, college and university sports.

Thank you. It is possible it's a project undertaken as a result of not knowing how hard it was going to be, but it is one I am enjoying. As a schoolboy (decades ago) I did take part in regional athletics championships & won a couple of minor medals in long & triple jumps & hurdles, so it is a project that has a certain degree of meaning to me. I have got a progress thread going on at the DAZ forum if you are interested, it is here: " daz3d.com/forums/discussion/476581/progress-with-running-track-freebie-initial-release " though this url may be broken when I change the thread title to reflect the next release, which is why I've not tried to persuade Renerosity to make a hyperlink out of it.

C'est un projet d'envergure que je n'aurai pas le courage de faire. J'espÃ¨re que tu prendras autant de plaisir Ã le faire que nous Ã l'utiliser. Merci!

This is amazing, can't wait to see all the add ons for it, too!

I do hope it is useful. I have spent quite a long time modelling this, and have learnt a great deal. I suspect that, when it's finished, I'll find I should have taken an entirely different approach... Always the way, though. Next step, improve the user guide, get the starting blocks corrected, and a heap of poses to set it up for the correct lanes, and 100m starting poses. Regards, Richard.

Merci, j'avais justement un projet de ce genre en rÃ©serve avec les gradins et barriÃ¨res... ðŸ‘ðŸ»
