I was scrolling trough all the topics on this forum today and saw some tracks mentioned of which I had never heard before.

1. Rouen Winter/ In Space
- I've only found one screenshot of the winter version. Both of the tracks are unavailable though.
Are they lost or were they never really released?

2. Mosport At Night
It took my a while to realise, but is this the only Papyrus track of which there doesn't seem to be a night version?

There are more Papyrus tracks at night by Fast Tommi available.

Thanks, I'll just be patient and see if something happens. Maybe a surprise release around christmas? Who knows. :)

I'm aware of all the other night tracks (I did video's on all of them) but I found it strange that Mosport was missing. It also didn't show up in the NITETR67 season, so I guess a night version of that track was just never made.

Oh, I overlooked that you mentioned Mosport being the ONLY Papyrus track missing. :)
Yes, in deed it`s the only Papy one Fast Tommi has never done a night version. At least not that I know of.

Isn't there somewhere here a thread about simulating a night version of any track by using GPLFog?

Yes! Found it!

Good idea John, but better use the new:

GPL Night Patch by Lee
Simulates night driving by changing from day to night to day
http://gplmotorworks.gplworld.de/

You will have night but the track will of course look the same.
Special night graphics with lights on the track you only get with Fast Tommi`s Night Tracks.

The night patch is great fun indeed, although I prefer the atmosphere of Fast Tommi's night tracks. Those tracks have a certain charm which the night patch kind of lacks in my opinion.
