Does anyone know who on these forums is from the '55 Mod team? I kinda want to ask for their permission to try and make this a proper mod before I get too far with it. Obviously the main part of the mod is their work, I'm just editing .ini files and doing some other minor things.

A bit of a preview with the new drivers, they all have the same number as I haven't got round to that yet and I need to find out how to rename teams so I can have entries such as Hawthorn be historically accurate. (His '56 entry was semi-factory entered with Owen Racing with a British Racing Green car.)
(Donovan CĂ©ilach is my '55 driver profile.)

Gonna go over the driver photos too and add a sepia effect to them so that they don't look strange next to the sepia '55 photos.

Hi FJB,

If you want to change anything in the menus then you do need to learn about carsets, I'm afraid.

Here's a possibly helpful link:

Yes, to change the team names you have edit the .cst.  It's easy to do with a simple text editor such as WordPad.

So I've got the team names and logos as I want but I can't figure out how to change the team graphics. For example, I have the Owen Racing Organisation in-game now but as they're just a re-named Merc they still drive the W196 in-game. I've tried copying the Maserati files in the cars folder and re-naming them to imitate the Merc files. I assumed this would mean that although the game thinks it's loading in a Merc model it's actually loading Maseratis for them which is what I want but they still load in as Mercs even when the original files aren't present. Where are the files that control which 'graphics' dropdown is available to which team?

EDIT: I have realised that the files I was changing were just for the car livery and not the actual model, where are the .3do files for the '55 cars? I can maybe do the renaming trick with the .3do files.
