Does anyone know what has happened to Steve's web page ?  It doesn't work anymore and I was just there not more than a month ago.

If not, does anyone have the 7.0 version addons for the 11 Papy tracks ?

It says on top: The domain stevelife.com has expired.

Maybe he forgot to pay his subscription?

There are better addons and certainly more realistic (some of his are complete fantasy) but if you want them, you can now find them all lumped into one 132Mb file over HERE.

Thank you Dangermouse, I respect your opinion, what addons would you consider the best for the original 11 ?  I tried his addon for Monza quite a while ago and I was impressed at the time, wanted to try the rest.

I am racing in a league and we are running the original 11 tracks this season and I just wanted to spice up my practice sessions.

Now there is a can of worms if I ever saw one!

I've used a lot of Steve Life stuff in the past, but only still use any at Kyalami.  I use his as a base and add the Klas horizon.  I also have options for the pit wall or not.

Mexico is David Wright with a different horizon (Al Heely?).  

Monaco Rocks!

Monza Rocks too!

Mosport is Jason Peters with the Klas horizon and Kelllaaa68 addons.

I'm still using Kellaaa's last update to The Nurburgring untouched.   :thumbup:

Rouen Historical is just the best.

Silverstone has been untouched for so long I forget who did it.  Ah!  A search reveals it's Jack Sellers!

Spa is a mix of many different authors.  A true Frankenstien.  You can't use Scotties version with rebel racers sounds.  Seegert's horizon is a must have.

Watkins Glen is now Rock Lobster and Remy Roesz.

Zandvoort is now the Mod Squad's.   :rolleyes:

I'm interested in other's favorites.

I'm using pracitcally the same, except for Mosport and the Ring. For these two, just like Kyalami, I'm still using Klas's original addons with very little on top of them.

Thank you both for your responses.

The next race is at Mexico,  I like the David Wright addon very much, but can't seem to locate the horizon you mentioned.  The horizon definately needs something it's a little plain the way it is.

I have this horizon in my folder, it is surely an add-on but don't know by whom.

Thank you Ginetto,  that is beautiful,  I may have to try that on a track I've been working on .

I just did a quick search here and couldn't find Al Heeley's Mexico sky.  I have it.  Is it ok to post it here?

Is it okay to use that in a track of my own design ?

I would be glad to include the creator in my list of credits if you can figure out where it came from.

Thanks for that Dangermouse. :thumbup:

Monza and Monaco seem to have a problem: Archive damaged or unknown format. Is it possible to re-upload it after verification ?  :idunno:

I just realized that Al Heeley's sky was available for years, so of course it's ok to post them here.

You can find all his skies over HERE.

Good choice of addons.

Kyalami I use jason's update with Paul S's sky

Mexico I use david's sky (Papy's) because that's what it's like most of the time in Mexico.

Monza - small addon for monza ( IIRC which you get if you use the GPLPS installer)

Sorry, those 2 files are corrupt. I will have a look later in the week at some other h/d and see if I can find good ones.

What is the general opinion of the All In One installer's gfx?
Are they realistic/accurate?

I have changed some tracks to other updates:
Monaco - unknown, probably a mix of Monaco Rocks lite & Steve Life
Nurby - XKellaaa
Rouen - historical v2
Watkins - added the 'fall' files
Zandvoort - multi season update

the rest are all from the installer.

the rest are all from the installer.

Monaco, at that time, was to heavy for some systems so it was left out. It will be in the next version with monaco rocks and a light version.
Nurby, XKellaaa version/addons has been released after the Installer and may be included if I get permission.
Rouen, the version included in the installer is not as accurate as the Rouen historiacl version but was a good compromise.
Watkins, missed the fall update :)
Zandvoort - a good version included but the later released multi season update is great

Overall we tried a combination of historic, accurate addons which are not to heavy for most systems. So I think it's fair to say that it's a good compilation. It's at least much more accurate then the original files of a plain GPL installation :)
At the moment we're trying to get permissions to include different, additional stuff in the next version.

I have Steve Life's photo real add ons (both version 7.0) for Monaco and Monza.  Are these the files you want/need?  If so I will upload.
