Happy New Year friends! It's been a long time since I uploaded a mod! But I'm back, and will be working on projects, albeit intermittently :)


Ever wanted to race at the Nordschleife during the off-season or the initial VLN races? I know for me I prefer the look of the Green Hell in winter. Now, you can become Connor DiPhillippi in Assetto Corsa with this mod! Simply drop the new files in the ks_nordschleife location, or as the readme.ini indicates :) This effectively provides 3 seasons at the Nurburgring now: summer, autumn (with some of the fine mods already here at RD) and winter!

Credit to Joshkerr for some of the additional trackside detail files and real 2016/17 banners. Check out his autumn Nords mod here on RD!

This is the best "out of season winter" Nordschleife available for AC so far. 10/10!
Still the best looking\ most immersive nords skin for VR. Better trees then 3d trees and those 4k/8k reskins.
More than 5 stars! After many texture and model revisions I had used in the last few years I found an old screenshot of mine and remembered this mod with the to-date most realistic look of all time for a scarcely vegitated Eifel/Nordschleife.

I reinstalled it and can't get enough. In combination with Pure, CSP and the right filter your mod gives more realistic visuals than even 20k 3d trees manage to do.

Other winter mods have trees where branches are just too thick, you managed to get the look just so right - thank you again!

If you ever get back to this or apply this treatment to other tracks we will all appreciate it.

Also this mod is a testament that sheer model/detail/texture overload is not necessary. You Sir are a textbook game developer, you achieve an ultra realistic look with suspension of disbelief by applying highly optimized changes and top it off with just the right color balance.

I recommend anyone to try this out if you haven't already you will not look back!

Quick tip for CM users, put the contents of this mod with its folder into the main 'MODS' folder in your game directory and activate it via CM > Content > Mods so as to not to interfere with others. It does work with Pyyer's or other track update mods.

Enjoying this in 2023 and beyond.
honestly, more than 5 immersive, especially in exactly shows the Eifel Germany as it is. Thank you. Is it possible to do this for more middle european tracks?
I can no longer imagine driving here any other way. Really satisfying work.. thanks so much. Btw, it looks especially good with the new Pure weather script set to Haze and early morning (07-0800). Highly recommended.
Absolutely stunning, thanks for your work!
great mod
Absolutely stellar work! Went to the 'Schleife last week, track was closed because of snow, but this looks very, very nice and accurate compared to my pictures (we went to quite a few corners)
Really gloomy, damp great atmosphere, feels allot closer to the reality you see in most of the footage from the place. Great work.
Just excellent! great atmosphere. Thank you
Wow! that is most authentic, great atmosphere.
Feels like a cold day in winter, very immersive.
Texturing and trees are a work of Art.
Very well done get a job at AC
Every update is a game changer. It´s one of the best work outthere. Thank you so much for this incredible piece of art.

You are most welcome, Dreamliner, still tweaking little things slowly but surely through the track's 300 or so texture files...another update may be coming :)
Really love this. Thanks!
Great quality, like usual. Thank you!
would you like to reduce branch of trees like in the winter monza track ? im sure this makes the trees look more beautiful in far distances..thanks

I'm sorry, what? Reduce branch of trees?
Looks nice so five stars, but have I just overwritten the default Kunos Nords? I can't activate this as a mod using JSGME, and now when I select the Kunos Nords this winter version loads. How do I get the original Nords back, and how do I switch between the two..? I've got a horrible feeling my default Kunos Nords has gone for good. Please don't suggest verifying Steam cache as that will bork a whole host of other mods.

Unless you crack open the Nords kn5 file, you cannot overwrite the original game files...they exist in a hidden folder. The file destination of these files essentially override the summer foliage coded by Simone :) Deleting them will revert the Nordschleife.
