The default carset included with the 66 Mod has no folder containing reduced sized mips so I've been unable to use this mod up until now. The 69 Mod has a lite carset addon so I decided to make one for the 66 carset. I can now run this mod with my Voodoo card/CPU combo but can't guarantee that it will load with all other existing computer/3dfx card combinations. I also tested this carset with a GeForce 2/MX 400 and can guarantee it gave this video card a healthy boost in performance when used in the same Pentium 900mz computer. This lite carset also gave a noticeable frame rate increase when used with an Athlon XP 2200/GeForce 4 Ti 4200 in heavy nose to tail traffic at Targa Florio(36 fps). So for anyone that would like to use this addon to increase their frame rate,here you are. I tried to do this fantastic carset justice by not reducing the mip sizes any smaller than needed. All credit goes to the 66 Mod team. I hope you enjoy these beautiful cars as much as I do. :wave:

Always good to have 'Lite' carsets, even if we don't always need to fall back on a lower-end pc. Thanks!

It was my pleasure as I'm the one that has to rely on a lower spec computer and video card. If just one other member can utilize this addon as I must then it is well worth the little effort to post it. Finally I'm getting some feedback and that I appreciate,whether it be praise or critisism.

Your effort is appreciated, even if we don't often say so.  There are other places I hang out at where there are discussions about how people with "experienced" computers are getting left behind, and what to do about it.  The standard answer is "buy a new computer whether you can afford it or not."  Then I start talking about this car sim that came out in 1998 that can be run on anything from a P3 to the latest and greatest quad.  It's a real thread killer.   :)   With you on one end and Brr on the other, we are pretty well covered.

Thank you very much Kenny for your continued effort to bring light / voodoo card compatible stuff into GPL :) . It's very usefull :) .

There has been a previous effort to make the 1966 carset voodoo compatible but for some reason it didn't work, although it did work as a 'light' carset since many of the textures were reduced in size. I hope that Voodoo users can now also try this mod :) .

:wave: Tommie.

Hi Guys

Was wondering if it was possible to use Kennys files and create a Lite carset just like the 65 mod that was selectable in GEM?

If it was possible what steps would need to be taken to do this?

Thanks for any assistance

Craig

Make a copy of the cars66 folder, and put Kenny's files in there. Then rename the folder to lite66 and select it in the GEM dropdown. That's it :) .
