Hello! I'm pretty new to GPL, but I'm already in love with the game and it's loads of mods. I've got at least 10GB worth of space on my hard drive taken up by GPL :lol:

Though I had an idea earlier today while I was playing, which was sort of a Youtube account that only uploads raw, unedited footage of GPL gameplay. Something to the tune of three or five laps on whatever track and car is featured in said video. I'm not sure if anyone would be able to use it, or if the dumb Youtube licensing will interfere with it, but I'd probably license the videos under CC0 (basically public domain). After all, anyone could do the same thing on their own, provided they have GPL.

Only issue would be how I'd want to present it, and maybe completeness. I can do pretty well on most tracks after I've gone around them once, but that's with both braking and throttle assistance enabled. I could hardly handle maneuvering any cars I tried with both of them turned off. Now, would you rather watch someone race knowing they have assists enabled, or without assists?

As for completeness, just add up how much time it would take for me to race every car (including trainers), at every track ever made for GPL, for at least three laps without crashing or spinning out. Would take ages for everything to get done, but that doesn't mean I can't try!

So, how does something like that sound?

Yep. That's why I'm very hesitant on even using a driving line, unless it's my first few runs at the track, then maybe. Can't learn how to drive without them unless you take them off, after all.

Ehh, I don't know. I like keeping myself hidden online, and Idk if adding my voice to a video would be a good idea.

I hope you will try, it's always cool to see a car / track combination video before downloading or installing it.

Don't know about just three laps, but some years ago I computed to do one race weekend (practice, qual, two hour race) with each car from each mod at each track then available would take fifteen years non-stop.  I've been with GPL 22 years and counting, there are tracks I've never raced and cars I've never yet driven.

Go for it!  If nothing else it would be a great travelogue of tracks.  Licensing isn't a problem, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of game videos on youtube.

The idea, in general, is good.

For many years I have in mind creating a one lap onboard video using a replay for each track (well at least for the 419 real tracks) using the latest graphics updates. In the past, I think the WR replays were available on GPLrank.
Then upload it to YouTube and then I would link to the video on the GPL Track Database (GPLTD).
Well, but I simply do not have enough time to do so.
But I link on the GPLTD to YouTube videos whenever I see good ones for the tracks.

And also pardon me... :)
Here is our GPLRACER league race channel:

For example, watch our latest 65 mod cup race at Rouen for some nice onboard action.
