After driving the 55s, I think the F1 in 1960 would be incredible. But my real wish is to have time to master the mods and tracks we have!!!

Also Tasman missing tracks will be wellcome when availables.

But what I'm really need is a delay for the 68 mod (sorry guys), as the Jarama I'm working on is just the 1968 F1 race. The worse challenges of the track are almost surpassed, but there is still a lot of work.

PD: I was there and took some pics. That week -the monday before-, was my 16th birthday!

Im not sure what more I could wish for as I have probably a decade ahead of me if I was to go through the different classes of cars and tracks I have. Its truly unbelievable how large the gpl univers has become and who has seen an open source development  phenomenon like this anywhere else. Its mind boggling.

Im humbled by the share scope of gpl land and I cant ask for more. But I will eagerly await anything new as its always awesome stuff and it just keeps coming. Great work and many thanks to all those who have created such fantastic content in gpl.

What I would like to see is a new generation of modders, graphics artists, 3D modellers, track makers etc to come forward to help our current band of dedicated but dwindling content authors. Instead of more demands for more GPL-related things, I would like to see more assistance on the supply side.

I've tried track-making myself, but it takes a lot of time and effort to create a GPL circuit, and when I tried it I started having all sorts of problems with trackside objects and buildings suffering from clipping, and other problems. I will try to get back to the subject at some point in the future when I have more time, but in the meantime I try to work on some less ambitious tasks, such as increasing the MIP levels of track textures to reduce 'sparkling' and aliasing problems.

Thanks to all of the current GPL modders for continuing to give us new content, and keeping the sim alive now for twenty-one years! :up:

:thumbup:  
Any mod from almost any era with a GPL and car centered editing tool. We have the cars (F1 & Sports). Currently you can get to 95% very quickly but to finish a "SRMZ" worthy mod is, I'd wager, like getting close to a black hole.  Just look at the work of Gianfranco, Francesco, and Greg below. Others are always welcome.  Bob

Bob has car models for the next 20 years of GPL :)
http://historicracinglegends.com/
-> also click on Index on top of the page to sort by Year, Name, Created, Modified ;)


And to give you a little insight into the workload of the development of a track...
For example, the track building thread of a private forum for a GPL track that will be released soon
was started on 15 Jul 2018 and has atm #4538 posts on 182 pages! And the track building team was not talking about the weather.
Edit: Well, and if they talked about the weather, then only how the sky looked in 65 and 55.  ;)

I like proper tracks for the original 11 tracks. Spa67 showed us how wrong the Papy tracks are. I know Kyalami is way off. I'm not sure about the rest of them?

I'd help but i'm a total dummy when it comes to editing.

4 things for me

1- Everybody, who do the mods and updates for GPL, stay well and get the right praise

2- We not only attain our team of modders but aquire new modders too

3- That we are all thankful, and everybody concerned  shows that, for all the magnificent  updates to come


4- SRMZ and GPL continue for many more years to come

We had so many goodies the last years, I am not waiting on anything.
Just stay in good health for everyone in this community, so we can enjoy GPL for another year.

Only one of Kyalami's corners is too tight. Otherwise it's pretty good. The worst track in GPL now is Watkins Glen. The back straight down to the S/F line is completely wrong. See from 1:16: https://www.youtube....h?v=2NUWlViGF2s

Why were the times so slow at Kyalami in 67? Qualifying 1.28.3 and fastest lap 1.29.9. I know most of the cars were 66 cars but that can't be the reason. In GPL those times are easily beaten with 65 cars. I would think it has to be more than one turn.

65 mod physics are horrendous.
Look at the 1968 quali times instead.

The 68 cars were much faster than the 67 cars. As an example the qualifying time at Monza was 2 seconds faster in 68 compared to 67.

From what I read, the tarmac in 1967 wasn't the best in Kyalami. I think there was hot weather, too.
The track was resurfaced in 1968, and widened to make better racing. And I guess the circuit got a lot faster with that, too.
