Thanks for the kind words, Gartner.  Also, thanks ed76, for the new driver images.  :)

At some point all of the driver images need to be touched-up to have a similar 'look'.

all numbers are gone after I install the new carset. and i followed the instructions. if i choose a track that is not in the 55 season, the numbers are back. but with the 55 season tracks they have no numbers. any reason for this ?

Chris, it sounds like you are not unpacking the archive file into your main GPL folder.  The symptom is that the new car/driver files are not in each of the cars55 sub-folders.  Check that first - see if there are many "loose files" (outside of the 'dat' files) within each car folder.  If there are not many, then that is the cause.

Greg, there are two cars number 4 at Spa. The player car and Paul Frere´s Ferrari. Is it possible to change Fere car´s number ?

at SPA 1955 n°4 is Trintignant

put TRI32a.3do
and change the driv55.ini :


[ driver_2 ] ; Ferrari 555 Supersqualo
team_number = 4
team_order = 2
car_number = 32
first_name = Maurice
last_name = Trintignant

and delete the line : skin = 401

Chris and Ed76:

Unfortunately the answer is 'no'.  When the 55Mod was being developed we did not anticipate making race-specific carsets.  So, we chose the old stand-by of player car '4'.

You can make a player carskin with another number.  You could, for instance, make a player car #99 by painting a blank (default) carskin with that number and saving the file as XXX99.mip.  Then you would need to make a XXX4.3do file (or modify a default 3do file) that has the 'call' for that XXX99 mip file.  This would give you a different player car with the #99 visually ... but the 55Mod would still list the player car as #4.

[G.P.L. can be modded to change the player car number ... but that requires even more work, like making the new player car # files (both mip and 3do) for all car types.  Plus, if you race online, you would need to change back to player #4 for that.]

Yes , I know , but I prefer not have 2 n°4 in GPL RA reports

PS :
Do you know why there were no odd numbers?

Sure thing, Ed.  You can use the carsets as you like.  :)

I don't know the reason for the even numbers only for most international race events.  If you look at some of the '54-'55 British events, there are odd numbers assigned to cars at most races..
