Tidying up my HD I compiled some files i made for Charade70 back then, its mostly a patch to make a 4bit version of this track and reclassify some 3dos to help fps and get things to work in the graphics menu.

Thus it helps on fps by 1st liter textures, 2nd an acceptably looking 16bit LowRes horizon which is as lite as a 4bit horizon and 3rd by the reclassified 3dos, which allow you to switch off Tracksideobjects and Horizontextures in the mirrors, or even in cockpit view via the GPL Graphics Menu.

This track has always been one of my favorites,the kind I just want to do lap after lap on. I've run the excellent default track textures through Winmip and now Charad runs like a scalded cat on my computer. A few other different textures thrown in. The included Repository horizon isn't correct but neither is the default sky. This one looks a lot better.

honestly, i have to see if the textures make a difference, but i prefer the gplea clermont over this one any day. the thing with those two is. i keep wondering which one is the more accurate one. i tend to think it's the other one, with the pretty horizon and all. but the altitude changes and general layout in this just feel weird. i wouldn't go so far as to claim i hate this track, but surely it isn't a love affair either. more like mutual contempt / dislike for each other. i don't like the track and it in turn doesn't love me back by giving me bad laptimes, no matter what i do or what i drive :D

now an update like what jason had started for the other clermont.. that would be something i'd really appreciate ,)

I don't think it fair to compare the 2 tracks,Charad70 was pretty much a one man effort AFAIK and a terrific effort at that. From the small size of the actual update I think it lacked very little. There is a place for every GPL track in a particular individual's track folder. This track gives a great frame rate and has very good A-I. Even an older computer with a Voodoo card can now handle this one easily. :2c:
