Just got this track, and the VIPER on as well, and went to GPL++ for addons, but all Eric's stuff is gone for both tracks. Wondering if anyone has his addons to share plaese?

Seems like you're in partial luck as I got EB's addon for this track but not the other. Anyway, here you go.

:( mmm
I get a "Could not load track" with this addon.  Yes I read the readme and followed the instruction. Any help?  Any screenshots of the improvements this addon brings?

Hi Alan. Subtle differences, grass and sky mainly. Tidies it up though imo. As for getting it to work, I just put it in folder and no prob. The only thing I can think is your trying it in the folder named rockIS, this update is for folder named ROCK, no IS. I got "could not load track" on that track, rockIS too, now it's gone hehe.

Thanks Bill
Definitely got the right folder.  You just put the dat into the folder :confused:  The readme says to extract the old dat and put the trk3do into the folder with the new dat.

Hi Alan, I did extract and put in the orig track.3do but didn't think that was causing probs, then the new dat and it works. I'm using d3d, maybe that's it? Beyond this I don't know. Here's my track folder and 67season info.

This update is based upon the original Martin Cooper dat file. The one by Eric B. eliminates the tree mip and that is unfortunate IMO. Rock Island is a fun track and has a new look,with the emphasis on "Rock". The Repository horizon fits this track pretty well,I think.
