Silverstone Sky With Or Without Sun Lens Flare

Today, 11:02 AM

Posted by Ramoats in GPL-Track Addons
A couple of my installs uses a second (silver 2) use of the mighty Silverstone circuit. That particular version I'm using has a lens flare from the sun behind a cloud in the sky. Meaning no disrespect to the original designer, it rather bothered me, so I altered the two horizon mips to eliminate it as you can see in my before and after pics. If anyone is interested, I attached the files in the enclosed rar.

I Am Back (As Promised)

Yesterday, 04:42 AM

Well, I left GPL in the winter of 2013-2014 to join iRacing

Today is the day Im back to my beloved GPL

Its not that iRacing is bad, but it somehow lacks in the atmosphere department. It is a bit sterile. And new graphic updates that focus on high end machines is annoying.

To cut the story short. Can someone write down what happened between 2013 and now. So that I can start upgrading my install. Since I havent touched it since 2013

Do we have driveable 60fps these days? And where can I find it? Will it work with AI?

Hows USAC doing?

And other similar questions.

Thank you!

Phillip Island 67 Final

17 Apr 2019

Posted by db312 in GPL-Track Database
Hello everybody :)

Here is as the title says a final version of Phillip Island, a track very well known for his bikes races, but also used with cars, and which is definitely very very fun !

Okay, I know that some of you are expecting some other tracks, but rest assured, they will be released soon !

Anyway, the idea to make it final has been proposed by Stefan Roess, starting from the beta version created by docroberto in 2004.
A great thank to him for this initiative, and of course also to docroberto !
Stefan and Pavel has gave us some nice pictures and videos from the sixties.
As usual “Dottore“ Ginetto has made all the hard work (3do and friends...) and also some beautiful textures ! A special thank to him !
Gliebzeit also participated, and Sergio Loro gave me a helping hand.

A huge thank to all these gentlemen, without whom this version would not have been possible !

You will find after the installation some detailed informations in the folder, and also some alternate files.

But there is a recommendation :
If some of you have the beta version already installed, even if the layout is the same, it is better to remove it before to install this one !
Normally, you won't be too much deceived...

And now, all you have to do is try it ! ^_^

And the thing...
Attached File  Phillip_Island_67_v1.0.rar   17.53MB   88 downloads

Ps : When releasing the track, I forgot to wait the addition of the sound files made by Gliebzeit...
Here is my error corrected by him... Thanks a lot Greg ! http://srmz.net/inde...48

And the adventure goes on... :drive1:

Older Racers: Do You Suffer Pain While Racing?

13 Apr 2019

I've not really raced for a couple of years and only started up again the last couple of months and I notice my shoulders are absolutely buggered. I don't know if it's the wheel size (I'm using the T300 and it's fairly small, but I've no idea how to make it larger. Yes you can buy replacement wheels for it but that's not doable financially.)

Just wanted to see if anyone else gets pain from racing. (Other than mental. HAHA!) I mean I'm messed up anyway. Nerve damage in my feet from medical issues in 2010 causes issues but not pain, and my back has been hosed for 20 years so I'm used to that, but this shoulder thing is new. I've lowered the rotation of the wheel to 320 but I'm debating going back to the original 270 of my first wheel to see if that alleviates anything.

Anyone got any thoughts or ideas? It's bad having to take painkillers just so I can drive.

65 Mod Won't Install :(

18 Apr 2019

Hi Guys,
latest problem :)
I get the ? in mod column in IGOR for the 65s.
Trying to start it offline I get to the green button in GPL screen but it doesn't work.

I deleted the 65 exe and let GEM+ rebuild it but no go.

I went through all of GPL folders and deleted any 65 thing I could find, downloaded the mod again...
reported 'not installed correctly'

I seem to get this sort of thing quite often.
My usual plan is reinstall GPL from scratch, but I have lent out my CD.

any assistance much appreciated !
cheers
Pete
