    Hi,
    I would like to make a time trial in Nordschleife map. Could you help me at making that? (because I don't know how to do that)

    Hey,

    The wiki has a lot of documentation on how to make a time trial, you can check it out here : https://wiki.beamng.com/Quickplay
    The best way to make a time trial is to copy files from other time trials and adapt them to your case.

    Also, if this time trial is just for you and you just want the checkpoints and a way to time yourself around a track, you can bring up the Hotlapping app in freeroam, and with the advanced menu you should be able to place checkpoints and time yourself around the map in very little time.

    You take an existing time trial somewhere, then you copy the timeTrialName.json and timeTrialName.prefab file to the quickrace folder of your map (if folder doesn't exist create one). Then rename the files with your new time trial name (yourNewTimeTrialName.json and yourNewTimeTrialName.prefab). You can then open the .json file with a text editor and edit the fields with your corresponding information (see what each field means in the wiki link I sent you).
    Then you can launch BeamNG, and basically follow from step 2 this tutorial : https://www.beamng.com/threads/introduction-to-scenarios-creation.14700/
