I've always found the Texas license plates on the 2F to be a little bit too big for my liking.  So after comparing the game skins to some pictures I have from the 1967 season, I did a quick and dirty edit on the mips to shrink them down to a more realistic (in my view) size.

All credit for the original art goes to the GT Mod team.

Drop the zipped folder in your carsGT folder.

Pictures: before - real - after

- Curt


See Ginetto's post below for a more proper fix.  If you are using my mips, delete 2Flic00.mip, 2Flic56.mip, and 2Flic59.mip from your 2Fchap directory, and replace them with the fixed 3do's.

Thanks again Ginetto   :)

Thanks a lot Curt for the heads up :thumbup:

I've changed the 3DO files and the lod texture accordingly with a 75% of the original size.
Here are the files that you need to place in your GPL/cars/carsGT/2FChap folder.

With these files, you don't need the reduced textures anymore; the result will be the same you see in Curt's post above :)

Ciao! :wave:

Thanks Curt and Ginetto!  :thumbup:  :wave:  Only problem now is that when this guy overtakes me in a race, I can't report him for speeding as I can't read his number!   :drive1:  :rant:
;)  :D

(P.S. Interesting fact - Ginetto's file has had 26 downloads in just one day. If each of those GPL fans and users donated just $5 to help run the SRMZ forum, the total for this month would be at $150. Just a thought.....  ;) )
