I have a couple of carsets for the OWR, or OWR2005, mod that need a home, if anyone is interested.  These were available on RSC several years ago, and on a couple of other sites that I've lost track of.

1978 F1 - includes all cars which actually appeared on track during the season, along with a few alternates;  includes historical data, notes, season files, and background images.  About 30meg.

1988 CART - includes all cars which competed plus numerous alternates, 50 cars total, with season files, historical data, notes, background images.  About 70meg.

Will post some screenshots once I get the files off my other system.


You will have to do some editing to put either set in the OWR2005 mod, but they look much better there due to a nicely reflective finish.  If anyone knows how to get them to look like that in the OWRbeta mod, please illuminate me.  (Screenshots were all taken in the beta mod.)

Well, looks like I lost about 100gig of race sim data on my old system.  Am still recovering bits and pieces.  But, amazingly, these two carsets survived ...on the internet.
The 1988 CART set is at:

The 1978 F1 carset is here:
http://www.sendspace.com/file/e7aztj

I'm amazed, it's been there since May '08 (I thought they'd dump it after a couple of months) ...and had 150+ d/l's (the only place I "advertised" it was RSC).  The 3D model in the OWR mod only superficially resembles the '78 F1 cars, so some (many?) liberties were taken to adapt the graphics.

Raising the dead here.

Does anyone have either of these carsets?  All links are dead, my original files were lost, and all that remains on my computers are a few of the F1 cars.  Also, does anyone have a link to the original OWRBeta mod?  All that's currently available is the OWR2005 mod (the illegal one), OWR2007, and the new Smiffden mod.

original Open Wheel Racing Beta, circa July/2004
ISRA/Vintage mods/Sports Car-IndyCar Mods/2004 IRL mod
or
ISRA/Vintage mods/Sports Car-IndyCar Mods/2004 IRL mod


EDIT (3-26-14):
ISRA is changing servers, but the individual links haven't been updated yet.

The downloads section is now:
ISRA_Downloads

If the url for the download item is http://www.or4c.com/isrs/mods/(item), substitute ovsrails for or4c.

EDIT2 (4-1-14):
ISRA is back at http://www.or4c.com/.../Downloads.htm.
IDK what's going on over there, but they do have some useful downloads, so it's worthwhile to search them out.

Thanks!  Wasn't familiar with that site, found several interesting mods there (like I need more race sim stuff).

That is my long time sim racing friend Mike Spinelli's place. We have been around for a few years or so.....
