I would like to ask whether you or someone in the mod team has already prepared, or has the intention to prepare, “mirrors with objects in”, as other mods have. If not, I am enjoying making the mirror views. I have already done the mips with the transparencies for half of the cars and soon I will complete the full set. I think the effect is quite nice.
However, only one car, the lola-bmw, has equal right and left sides, thus only one mip (here attached for trial in car folder coventry), is called for the mirrors in the car 3do. All the others need to modify the car 3do to call two distinguished left and right mirror mips. While I am able to prepare the mips, I am not yet able to change the 3do to add the second mip, as in other mods (e.g. 66 and 69X) few asymmetrical cars have implemented.
Would it be possible for you, or for someone who knows, to explain me step by step how to modify the 3do or, if I will not manage, to take over the task of preparing the 3do and I will supply the mips.
The attached pictures have been done applying each new mirror mip at the time and then cutting and pasting to have both in the same jpeg.
Looking forward to get a reply.

And here they are, 22 F2 mirrors (including trasparancy) with objects. In my opinion they add a lot of realism to the player rear view in the car, but note that it is only an image, so the suspension and the wheels will not move . For ten out of 12 cars, left and right mirrors have different images. This has required to modify the original cars 3do. Many thanks to Nes to have provided me with initial modified 3do.
Please note that this mirror add-on works in conjunction with my other add-ons on new suits, faces and helmets for F2 mod v1. Without those, the new 3do will miss some files. That is way I have compiled a mirror and suits all in one add-on for F2 mod v1 (this includes also the needed new suit for Raby, new gloves for Mclaren and a slightly darker blue helmet for Ickx).
