Hi all.

Did the Cortina mod that was being talked about a while back ever come to anything? The few details I've read hint that it was on the way, but after my usual trawl through Google's offerings I have once again struck mud instead of the hoped-for gold (still, ten out of ten for persistence).

Be great to have them in the game though, wouldn't it? Up on three wheels round the bends, the back end sliding out and snaking off down the straight for the next corner...

Bliss.

Here's hoping  :D

There were some internal betas, but it seems to have just about completely stalled later on, about two years ago.

I'm doubtful that by now anything will come of it, since the author seems to have lost the will to finish the last bits - maybe got caught up in finishing other stuff for a while.

In other words: I wouldn't hold my breath for this one.

Regards, Rudy

Thanks, Rudy.

Sad news - it would have been nice to have a more domestic series in the game.

Perhaps GT Legends put an end to it with its abundance of road cars and regular new mods...

If there isn't much to do to complete it maybe it could be handed over to someone else to do the last bits. Hell, I'd even learn how to do it!

Thanks again,

Lotus49  ;)

Steffen W has been busy with real life stuff so he has not had the time to finish this great mod. But I spoke to him recently and he definitely wants to finish it sooner than later.

As one of the beta testers I can say the that the current state of the mod is excellent and if it were up to me it would be released. But Steffen has some extra tricks up his sleeve which will enhance the mod even further so I guess they are worth waiting for.

While the GTL and especially the P&G Cortinas look terrific in screenshots they look terrible out on the track.  They have no wheel movement and look like they are floating above the track.  I'm looking forward to Cortinas with GPL physics.

Thank you, Paul!

Good news indeed. I, like many others, will keep an eye on the forum and await its arrival.

You might wantto try the rFactor historiX mod.  It has Cortinas in it and a WHOLE lot more.  My favorite rF mod by far.

You can race Cortinas with the Power and Glory mod for GTR2 and GT Legends.  See the P&G forum on this site for details.  I got both games in the one box over the net for US$20.  The P&G mod is free and darned good fun!
