Gpl Pitstop Patch V1.00

2d .. does the server need to be patched as well? or is it client only required?

All your patches are top notch and bring extra joy to GPL.
Can't wait to drive a long race with several pitstops.

Thanks, another great addition for GPL.
One very small question. For both this and your weather patch the instructions say to put the patch into the "Mods/GEM+/mod name/options" folder for each mod. I have put it into "GPLSecrets/GEM+/Options" which installs it for all mods in one go (works for me). Is there any problem you know of with installing the patches this way?

No problem at all using your way.
I use that too so for every mod I have, even future ones, I have the option available.

Only the client needs to be patched. The server doesn't need the patch, but it won't hurt to do so.

No. This patch has no relation to work by any one else.

One questions: What fuel tank capacity GT cars had in 1967?
Posted May 26 2014 - 12:11 PM
This was a problem for the '67 Sports Car mod as this fuel capacity is not large enough to run a full length sports car race of 1 1/2 to 2 hours. So the mod team made a collective decision to artificially increase the GT40s' fuel capacities to 190 KGs. While not historically correct, this allows the cars to run a full length race as refueling was not available when the mod was released. The other car capacities were increased to do the same. I believe the P910 was the only car that had a large enough real world tank to go this distance.
My patch should allow future mods to use actual fuel capacities.
Just FYI, the mod capacities are:
GT40 MkIIB/IV--190 KGs
Chappie 2D/F--205 KGs
GT40 MkI--150 KGs

Yes, but that is still a bit on the high side. All the GT40s and their derivatives including the Mirage had 37 gallon tanks.
The P910 had a 26.4 gallon tank, but it it's fuel efficiency was much better so it could probably do 2 stints for every 3 GT-40 stints.
I can't find my notes on the other cars, but I seem to remember that the Ferrari had to stop every hour or so for fuel.

I found these fuel tank sizes (in litres), from various sources.

up to 2 litre engine size - 100 litres of fuel
up to 3 litre engine size - 120 litres of fuel
up to 5 litre engine size - 140 litres of fuel
over 5 litre engine size - 160 litres of fuel

I would love to see something along the lines of pit repairs.I know this could be hard to do and maybe impossible,but what a buzzzz that would be.
Thanks Lee again!!!
