I'm simply astonished... to my (lack of) memory, I've never seen bump mapping effect (ok, sort of) before in GPL  :hat-tip:

Thanks Jim for starting up again and for keeping us informed.

All the very best with your endeavours. I look forward to touring the full circuit one day, with eager (but patient) anticipation.

Cheers, David

Woohoo! This made my day :thumbup: .

The abridged version has been the venue for one of my most exciting online races so far, even though it was a non-championship race. Being chased for the lead by four Brabham BT26a's in your Lotus 63 had me sweating bucketloads :lol: .

:wave: Tommie.

Dear Jim,
I, along with all GPL enthusiasts will be forever in your debt for this mammoth work - I am astounded at all you have achieved already on the screenshots. Your Dundrod and short IOM are amazing enough but will be trumped by this.

I wish you a long and happy life, long because I think you may need it to complete the track  :D - and happy in the knowledge of the many that you have made happy by all you have done already. :hat-tip:

I seriously wonder if there is any way in which your Dundrod and eventually this work, could be entered in Art exhibitions ?  They surely are works of art and are worthy of being recognised as such outside the limited circle of sim-racers.

Thanks for restarting this project Jim, thanks very much.

Take all the time you need!
I have respect for your feelings and opinion.
There is enough to do for us GPL addicts to fill the next couple of years.

Enjoy life!

ps: Thanks Ken for posting!

Dear Jim,

Your work is great and incomparable !
GPL will not be complete without the full IOM and a new Nürburgring by You  :oops:  
It is unbelievable what You do with D3D7.

Wow!  :shock:
Just, wow!

Last time I browsed these forums I found this thread and the comments that Jim had stopped progress on the full IOM and was mightily upset  :(

I'm absolutely over the moon to see this new update and to hear work is back underway, take you time and enjoy the work Jim - Even if it takes years GPL won't have gone anywhere, I for one look forward to dashing myself to pieces on the various pointy bits of the track when it does get released  :thumbup:

I can only imagine the work involved in doing a track of this size in the quality range of Jim Pearson's IOM Mountain Course, which I'm a huge fan of.  I look forward to seeing this full-length track, and thank you Jim (and Ken) for putting in all that time and effort.  No worry, no hurry.  I'm patient. :)
