Here are some graphics changes to the Silverstone track to bring it closer to the circuit of 1955 and the BRDC International Trophy race.

This graphical update uses the '55 Mod naming convention ie 3do files are 355; mip files are m55; and srb files are s55.

Silverstone track made by Papyrus.
These changes are to be applied over the following updates:
GPL Today update - http://hem.bredband....e/gpl_today.htm
Jackseller update (NOTE: Do Not let the horiz.3do overwrite the previous file) - https://www.f1legend...silverstone.php
Thomas L├Ąchele update - http://www.thomas-la.../gpl/index.html
OR use the complete track folder provided.

Here is the Silverstone '55 track conversion complete folder - http://www.mediafire...ete_gl_v1.0.rar
Here is the Silverstone '55 track conversion mod files only - http://www.mediafire...ion_gl_v1.0.rar

I can't wait to try out these new updates after I reinstall GPL. And Greg, I like the way you're naming these threads consistently - it makes it so easy to use the SRMZ search facility to simply search for "1955 conversion" so I can see all of your updates listed together. It helps to make sure that I don't miss one! :thumbup:

Keith, thank you for your kind comments.  :)

Darn.  I did name some topics 'Small Update' ... for some tracks that were already made to be in the 1950s period.  Don't pass up Bremgarten and Leipzig.  ;)

Greg,

Still working my way through your conversion files.  My existing Silverstone folder had GPL Today & Thomas Lachele updates.  Whereas your update path includes the Jackseller updates.  So I went back and reconstructed from the base version.  However this screwed up the horizon when applying Thomas' update (it jumped upwards giving Silverstone a hilly view).  Wasn't like that when I was there last Saturday :D.

The problem was caused by "horiz.3do" from the Jackseller update.  Thomas Lachele's update needs the GPL Today version.  So might be worth a cautionary note in your update instructions to not overwrite it.


Of course if you use the "Complete Track Folder" it's all OK.  

thanks
webfoot
