GPL Vila do Conde 1972 - Version 1.1

Authors: Carlos Costa and Toni Mau

July 2007 Final Version

Beta Testers - Toni Mau/Rui Carneiro/Mário Pires/Ricardo Gomes/Dinis Santos/Rogério Matos/Tiago Silva/Sérgio Batista/Alexandre Dionísio and others

Textures - Carlos Costa/Toni Mau ; Some other textures taken from GPLEA´s Zandvoort update (thanks Nils and Berca) ; Asphalt texture adapted from Brands Hatch 1967; Sergio Loro; Horizon adapted from a Scott´s horizon at GPLR; Other textures´ origin is unknown.

"Thank You" to : Sergio Loro ; SportsCarGT ; www.adavc.pt ; José Mota Freitas ; Phil Flack and all the authors of GPL editing tools

This project started some years ago, when Carlos Costa made the first efforts to build Vila do Conde for GPL, in 80´s style. However, the project stopped some time ago, and it was re-started by me, Toni Mau.

This is the 70´s and 80´s layout of the track, that started being used in 1971. The track tries to make a recreation of the 1972 race.

Thanks GPL Mirror Zone for hosting all these tracks!


OK, now let´s go to the files part. In this topic, you´ll find the 1.1 track version.
There is a low rez horizon for those who have small FPS drops
There is a low rez version for those who have FPS drops. The track can look a bit more uglier. All textures 256x256 or smaller in this pack.
There is a high rez mip pack for those who want very pretty river views in replay views. Requires good computers.
The name of each of the 4 files says it all, not hard to find what you are looking for.

In real life, this track was used till some years ago. It isn't used any more, now it´s only real public roads of a heavily populated zone. This version is the 1972 version, with no chicanes, they came up later.

NOT VOODOO COMPATIBLE (I guess, I´ve got no way to test it, if it is, better!)

Things that could be better/can be upgraded:
- The AI is kind of stupid and hates overtaking. They seem to crash sometimes, altough they work.
- Track Cameras aren´t the best, I really can´t do that... I took them from some other track.

Have any problems? Post them and I´ll try to help.

This track has been heavily tested online to assure no serious bugs happen. We think this final version is free of errors, although we can´t be 100% sure of it of course!

Have fun!

Hi Toni & Carlos !

I install the base-files and the light-files. After some fiddling with winip2 i can reduce the oversized mips in the *.dat and pack it new to ca. 15 MB. Now it runs on my old voodoo-pc.

Thanks for the track. Nice racing there.

Greetings

After almost a year,

We thank you for your kind words and more than 3000 views on this topic. Me and Quico feel that it was worth it and thank all the downloaders.

I would like to see this track on more league races... but it seems it isn´t being used. Well, it´s only really suitable for 65 mod races anyway. 67 or 69 are fun, but the natural feel comes with 65.

Also thanks for the 119 downloads since the new GPLTD website is up.
