Goodwood 1965 track for Grand Prix Legends (incl. 1955 bonus)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Quote

Goodwood 1965 v1.0

This track for Grand Prix Legends represents the Goodwood Motor Circuit in 1965 which was the last year Formula One visited Goodwood before the track closed in 1966.
As a bonus a representation of Goodwood in 1955 is included.

Using period photographs and historic video combined with earth mapping data, we have tried to create the feel and atmosphere of Goodwood Motor Circuit in 1965 and 1955.
To do this we made : - track layout with accurate elevations - track buildings and other objects - advertisements of the period - a portrayal of the surrounding area.

How it works -
Using the 1965mod you will see and drive the track as it was for the 1965 non championship race meeting for Formula One cars held at Easter 1965. The day was overcast with cloudy skies.

Using the 1955mod you will see and drive the track as it was for the 1955 non championship race meeting for Formula One cars held at Easter 1955. That day was also overcast with cloudy skies.

Using any other GPL mod you will see and drive the track in 1965 with clear skies and summer vegetation as it was for the Sports Car events held in September.


Installation -
run the installer - select the path to your GPL installation.


Options - "UN-ZIP ME Options_and_info.zip"  located in the goodwd65 track folder.

AI_options - AI made by Pavel and Tato
Horizon_options - type7 32bit textures
Information - Event information for 1955 and 1965
Low_Res_addon - Smaller textures if needed to boost performance
Track_sound_options - Removes the track sounds


Goodwood 1965 is not compatible with the July 2000 - GPLEA "Revival" version of Goodwood.

This software is supplied free and "as is" with no warranty. You use at your own risk.
It may not be copied and supplied for financial gain.


We hope you have as much fun driving the track as we have had making it.

Notes that started the track development thread on 15 July 2018, which has today 196 pages with #4878 posts:

greg - We will be making some updates to the beautiful Goodwood track made by GPLEA in 2001 and enhanced by Jackseller in 2004.   Posted Image

greg - First, I will re-post the private messages that have gone between Denis (Db312) and myself over the past few months.
This forum is a better place for track update development, as we can hopefully receive more input.

greg - Ginetto's work is what I started with for the '65 version, along with Denis.  The gaps in the off-track grass fringe is very obvious, but can be made to look very good if they can be added back in.   Posted Image

greg - I was going to wait until Paul had completed work on his absolutely gorgeous new horizon/sky for Goodwood .... but, I can't get enough of driving it now!!
stefan - Paul is back editing. Posted Image Posted Image
ginetto - FWIW I am making build files of this track to let you guys work in every direction.

Don't forget to update the GPL Alternative Track Database 'cause it's a wonderful new track ! :thumbup:

One question : what are the main differences between the two AI files ? They seem to be very close !

Easter has come early :bounce:
Many thanks to all involved. :bowdown2:

in the (2018 full update) 65 Mod,
am I right that the FULL65 carset requires the v2 Rasterisers (otherwise you get the "could not load the track" message)
so to run with v1 Rasterisers you'll need to use the LITE65 carset ?


[aside, in the 55 Mod I was getting a CTD on trying to enter the car (any session, any track, and yes with v2 Rasters) which I found to be related to Lee's v3 Night Patch file '78X KeyPress v.08.xml' which I had copied into each mod's GPL/Mods/Gem+/### folder (including /gpl55)
Simply relegating it to the gpl55's options folder (& leaving it unchecked) did the trick - Sorry Lee if I missed something in one of your Read Me's]
