Hey everyone :wave:

Recently I was browsing for some track updates and found some very good ones here! http://www.thomas-laechele.de/gpl/
I didn`t see any of his work here before?! Correct?
I love the solitude update some nice shadow effects in there!
Please give them a go!

cheers

BW

Very nice updates indeed. Here's a little 3dfx fix to make his Hockenheim lo-res update Voodoo card compatible.

Good find indeed! Wonder why Thomas didn't publicize them much (seemingly, at least).

Thanks for the heads up Bob.

As soon as you mentioned Solitude you had my undivided attention. I think it would be my favourite add-on track. So anything that can improve that experience I'm there.

And thanks of course to Thomas Laechele for the updates.

That 's a pity that a such  a talented guy, isn' t collaborating on others tracks upgrades, because I remember having installed them once, and it is a Jim Pearson kind of high level work ! :drive: :artist: :thumbup:

Thx Bob for pointing us to it!

I never heard of the guy and his updates.
The updates are dated 2009 and 2010.

I will give them a try soon.
The screenshots look very promising. :artist:

Cheers
Stefan

Salzburg is an entirely new track now;  I spent so much time there I've scarecely had time to check out the others.  Will have to reinstall Solitude as I already have an upgrade there.

Wow, this guy has real talent.

These updates bring all these tracks up another level.

Solitude has always suffered from not looking as good as other tracks, despite having one of the best layouts of any track in the world - not anymore - it looks fantastic.

Many Thanks for the link, and i only hope this guy continues his excellent work.

Don't tell us - tell him!  his email is in the readme files

I told him he should stop by SRMZ and take a bow.

There was a nice update by GTV for Soli. I think I still prefer that to this latest offering, as good as it is. I might mix and match the best bits. :)

Looking forward to trying his others.
