Here are some graphics changes to the Sebring '64 track to bring it closer to the 1955 version for the Sports Car race.

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

Included are: rec55, track55, page055, '55 S/F walkover bridge, '55 pits, removed MG walkover bridge, removed grandstands, removed '60s motorhomes, removed '60s aircraft and some other changes.

There are now modded sebr64.355 and sebr64.3do (for the other mods) in ULTRA-FB, HI-FB and LOW-FB (regular) versions in sub-folders.  I felt that the S/F walkover bridge should be seen from the East-West Runway.  Also, increased is the look-back viewing distance from the S/F straight to the East-West Runway.  If the fps hit is too hard on your PC please use the HI-FB or the LOW-FB version of these files.

[ EventXX ]
name=5th Sebring 12 Hours
shortName=Sebring 12 Hours
trackDirectory=sebr64
trackShortName=Sebring
flag=usaflg
month=3
day=13
numberOfLaps=120
startingGrid=5

These changes are to be applied over the Sebr64 track by ginetto - http://srmz.net/inde...?showtopic=8751

Cheers, Bob!  :)

Still tinkering with a few things. More primitive pit buildings, cones for half-tires, remove S/F chain fence and haybales and remove some large tents.  FB work.

Many thanks Greg for another great update. Out of interest I noticed their are a few .mip and .srb files not renamed as .m55 or .s55 any special reason ?.

Thanks for your kind comments, Brian.  :)

There were a few updates that ginetto made for his Sebring tracks.  One is the 707d.3do which is the Alitalia Boeing 707 with the correct lettering on both sides.  There's a strut.srb which is an improvement to the red/white wind sock.  There are improved horizon/sky files by I believe Remy.

Finally, the sebr64.3do is the increased FB version for the original track.  Again, there are LOW_FB files in a sub-folder, if required.  I've included the built-in track sound files for completeness.  ;)

"I persume you will also try do change all people to a 50s look?"

Yes, indeed.  I have a few other small projects on my plate to work on before doing that

I installed v1.1 the other day, Greg, but now see that a v1.2 edition is up.  Will try shortly.  Thanks, amigo...

Okay.  I've added an ULTRA-FB version that increases the look-back viewing distance from the S/F straight to the East-West Runway.  This not only fills out the appearance of more spectators/fencing, but it shows the single blue topped tent that was close to the back straight.... along with the cars screaming into the breaking zone for Sunset Bend. :)

I've also touched-up the people in and above the pit building and re-colored the large blue tent.  v1.3 at Post #1

This will be my last work on Sebring for a little while - other projects.  :)

How come there is a Ferrari box sandwiched by Maserati? :D Enzo wouldn't approve, Tavoni wouldn't allow it :P

Thanks for your work Greg!

Thanks, Leon!  :)

Working out independent pit boxes is a task for the future.  As it is, they are repeating the same texture all along the top of the pit building.

Working at another beautiful circuit made by a prolific track builder, now.   ;)
