Since it's quite hard to see the mirrors from the cockpit in these cars, I tried to find a virtual mirror pack for the CanAm 71. My search left my empty handed so I decided to make my own set which I here share for everybody to enjoy.

These files will place  a virtual mirror at the top center of your screen. I hope I don't get busted by the Realism Police for doing this. :lol:

Have fun,

Kai


EDIT: I removed the file because of post #4

it's no problem posting your mirrors, Kai.  I prefer realism, but these Can-Am mirrors were small.  The small size was not a big problem back in 1971, because drivers eyes have better resolution, than Computer screens do.  So for safe racing, I'll be using Can-Am virtuals.

An update including virtual mirrors is pending.
If you did a search as you mentioned you could have known we asked not to post updates to the mod untill that release.

While i appreciate your work we rather not have updates around that are based on the present mod.
Once the update is out it will undo the changes we made and cause confusion (which we already have too many of with all the fixes and patches around)

Oops, I'm real sorry, I hadn't seen that thread :( . I did a search with the keywords virtual, mirror and canam but that gave me no results.
I have now removed the file.

Great work, Kai. Bad timing, I guess. :)
