Hi Slipstream. I don't know specifically but have you checked my thread here, Gtr2 game. Snafu posted some race SIM links there, which have Rfactor downloads 🤔

If this is the mod i'm thinking of, it had a tortuous history - numerous WIP threads and screenshots, then nothing;  months later a "55F1" mod appeared which contained only the Mercedes and a note that other cars were still being worked on, but nothing more appeared for months again, when a "spec racer" addition was released which gave you a dozen or so various colored Mercedes to race;  nothing more for a couple of years, when a complete "55F1" mod was released with little fanfare.  I've no idea if this was a continuation of the first mod by a new group or a completely new mod;  it still has a small group of fans but I'm not aware of any subsequent additions to it.

Hi Guy Ligier,

I am formerly known as Punko353 and I am the one who created the 55 mod for rFactor.  I set up and ran Team Players Virtual Garage and was the main lead on all the mods we did as well as doing all of the models we did.

First off,  I shut Team Players down before we released the 55 mod because I was tired of having my models ripped off.

As far as the wolferl sounds,   He came on board late in the mod and offered to do the sounds for the mod.  I had already completed the sounds for all the cars and OK'ed him doing them.  When he finished them I wasn't crazy about the transitions between sounds and didn't use them.  He asked if he could release them for people that wanted them and I said that would be fine.

Unfortunately the mod was never released despite having it about 95% complete.

I just recently decided to go back and redo the models of the 55 mod in very high detail (not for any sim) and that is what brought me here.  I will be posting another thread with asking for help on some of the details of the cars,   I just happen to see this thread and was surprised that after all this time there is still interest in this mod.

This is my first post here and I am happy to see that GPL is still going strong.

Thanks,
Bob

Thanks ginetto,

I knew I had registered here a long time ago but my ID was probably purged because of inactivity so here I am again,

Since you are an admin you can probably direct me to where I should post my inquiry.   As I mentioned I am not modding any sims but am still doing 3D modeling and recently decided to start on the cars of 55 F1.  Since I have tons of pictures and details of that season I will be able to model the cars in great detail.

What I would like to do is start a thread and ask for help with some of the details that I don't have.  I know there are guys here that know far more than I do and from past experience you guys are always happy to help.

Where would you like me to post that?

Also what would you consider to be the best hosting site for pic's? (I see you don't host pics yourself... or did I miss something?)

Thanks for any help you can give.

Bob

Interesting.  I never downloaded the "complete" mod I referenced, it was mentioned in a thread at Nogrip but the link was to a small French (if I remember well) site, and I do not register just for a one time download.  Subsequent posts in that thread weren't very enthusiastic, and since by then the '55 F1 mod for GPL was available I pursued this no further.

I did enjoy the GP37 mod, though I found the Auto Union undriveable at anything approaching racing speeds, and, with all due respects, wolferl's sounds were unimpressive so I made my own (you can't just increase the pitch, timbre, and volume of an idle sound to create a power sound).

Bob :)
I just made a subsection that could work for your plan; go here :

http://srmz.net/inde...p?showforum=196

You can attach  pictures here but I think the limit of the .jpg for single post is 6 or 8.
You can also post files up to 50 Mb per post IIRC.

Tell me if you need something more and I'll help out :wave:

@Denny Hulme,   I saw that someone did those 55 cars and added them to our mod but never bothered with it since by that time I was pretty discouraged with the whole Rfactor community.   The 37 mod was released by Big Ben who was one of the guys in Team Players,  I gave him all the models I had created and told him he could finish it (I wasn't working fast enough for him).  I downloaded the mod after he finished it but I thought the physics sucked.

@ginetto,   I really appreciate you setting up that section.  I would like to ask if it is possible to not have it in the Rfactor section since my models are not going to be for any sim.  I am just doing the models because I love this year in F1.

I did manage to set up a gallery and posted one pic to it but couldn't figure out how to get the picture into a thread.  I assume I need to upload them to a picture sharing site to post in a thread?

Forgive me for asking these elementary questions,  I must not be seeing something that is in plane sight.

Thanks,
Bob

ginetto,

After looking through the forum here I see it may be disruptive to the forum by creating a section just so I can post pics and ask questions so if it works best for you to have me post in the rFactor forum that is fine with me.  I didn't really get a thorough look at your setup before asking. :blush:   I can still get the info I need so how ever you would like is good for me.

I hope you didn't think I was demanding.

Cheers,
Bob

There were a dozen or so of us at Nogrip truly interested in the GP37 mod, and at first we wondered if the physics weren't correct or if we just hadn't yet acclimated to the driving style required, but the fact we all had the same issues, and no one could drive the Auto Union at all, pointed to wacky physics.  Sadly none of us had the knowledge to rework the suspension files, tire files, etc., and those on Nogrip with that knowledge weren't interested in working on this mod;  so we gradually drifted away from it.  But those car models are absolutely gorgeous.

It is doubtful anyone with rfactor physics knowledge will ever work on this mod again .... but I wouldn't complain if some GPL folks thought a GPL '37 mod using those cars was a worthwhile project.

No problem Bob ;)
I will see where to place the sub-forum
I didn't understand that it was just 3D models :)

EDIT
This should be a better fit:
