1969X Wing Angles. Help Needed.

Today, 09:53 AM

Posted by Tobodestroyer2020 in GPL-Setups/Replays
Hi,

I've started to dabble with the 69X cars but I'm at a loss as to how to set the wing angles. All I've done so far is a race at Montjuich against the AI in the McLaren M9A. Probably not the greatest choice of car but you have to start somewhere. I set front and rear wings to 1.5deg but this was purely a guess. Where can I find help regarding how to set them up?

Thanks in advance

Pete

Teaching Slide Control To Rl Learner...which Tracks ?

06 Aug 2020

Hi Guys
Here's a weird one  :)
I have been teaching someone to drive for quite a while on the actual roads around here.
I wish there was some kind of closed track for driver training near here. I like the idea of those outrigger jobbies that simulate loss of grip.
Anyway I thought GPL might at least get them a feel for what understeer feels like ( :D) and how to correct slides etc
I think nice wide open runoffs with low grip track is what I need but can't think which ones fit the bill!
any suggestions gratefully accepted
cheers from NZ
Pete

edit
I always enjoyed that story of the guy who was driving at night when forced off the road ...
and found himself heading down a wet grassy hill studded with random trees...
credited his thousands of hours in GPL to his subsequent sliding dance to the bottom all trees avoided

then I thought of Fangio at Monaco slowing instinctively as the crowd was facing the wrong way at a pileup round the corner
great thing the human senses and reactions

Monza Junior - Track Update

06 Aug 2020

Posted by gliebzeit in GPL-Track Addons
All of these updates to this track were inspired by the monza67 track project.  There are some unique objects/textures that I was unable to make or position correctly.  This is because I did not have the ability to change or add them to the way the basic track was constructed - different from the monza67 track.  These updates are not definitive, as they most certainly can be improved.

Thanks for allowing use of these updates from your previous work, Ginetto.
Most textures are from Thomas Lächele or derived from them.
Thanks to Denis for his help in testing these updates, for providing feedback and for making better textures for some of the adverts... and also for the files in the low-res_textures_junior sub-folder.

There is a Lo-FB version of junior.3do in a sub-folder, if needed for slower computers.

Please drop these files in an already Installed Track folder.  These archives DO NOT contain any track, driver or record ini files.

ENJOY !!!

Monza 10K - Track Update

A side note: The monza10k track was only used for the '55, '56, '60 and '61 F1 races.  So, here the representation of it is for the 1966 Grand Prix movie where it was used for the Italian GP.  In actuality the '66 Italian GP was held on the standard Monza circuit.
There is a sub-folder with the pit people as invisible srb files.  Use these if you find that the "movie people" crowd the pit lane too much.  Posted Image
