Next up in line is the 1966 Can-Am mod. After that, perhaps the 55 mod :) .

If I can give my opinion, it should be best to focus on original content. Now we will have two Can-Am mods, we already have a Sports Car one while the '71 variant is already downloadable for rFactor. The same for '37 mod. The '37 mod is downloadable either for rFactor and for GTR2, where it's at it's best, with rain and classic tracks thanks to the PnG mod.

A '55 mod, instead, would be a Grand Prix Legends unique content. It would attract many people, even new modders which would give great help to the community.
In my (humble) opinion, original content is always the way  to go. "Mods (can be) for the modders", but we are in a community, so regardless the wish of a single or a few, we do things which may be of use and joy of many (and so we share them). Otherwise, the meaning itself of community would be none :)

I understand its the modders choice what mod is next but may I ask why it's the 66 Can-Am? Not even 67.

The last mod released was Can-Am and I feel there is some much much better choices for new mods. Especially when we don't get a whole lot. Not that that bothers me though I very much like the quality of GPL mods which is why I'm here instead of rfactor or somewhere else. I am just starting to race the 65's so I have them to race for a long time now.

Obviously this is just my opinion and I respect the modder's choice to work on what interests them. I'm just asking.

Other than the 68's which is my main interest I agree with Leon. Like I said though just having a dicsussion I'm happy with whatever you nice modders decide on.

That screen does look good though.

The same goes for a F1 '71 mod. I would love to see it on GPL, but there is already one for rFactor, GTL and GTR2. Better focus on a proper F5000 mod, which would be, again, a Grand Prix Legends unique content ;)

Also, completing and finishing the F2 mod would be good :)

It is the desire of the mod team to finish the 1966 Can-Am mod first. It is very different from the 1971 Can-Am mod and provides a unique GPL experience yet again. I do see the community's desire for the 1955 mod, as a team we will try and see if it's the best decision to move ahead with this mod or others in the pipeline.

The delay with the 1955 mod has had it's advantages too. With recent developments, it is possible to simulate the cars better than, say, one or two years ago. Also the mod can take advantage of graphical enhancements to better reflect history.

With new things like the weather patch and other physics developments coming along, GPL is like a new Sim constantly being reborn.

And my book of excuses would probably need an update as well :o   Hats off to the enthusiastic mod team who never fail to amaze, hard to believe that after almost 15 years I am still looking forward to new content :hat-tip:
