Dear gplers,

In the next days, exactly one year after my first historical carset of Spa, I will release one by one in chronological order, updated complete historical carsets for the 11 Grand Prix of the 1967 F1 World Championship, forming the Historical GPLH67 (mini) mod.

Thanks to Bernd Nowak, they are all provided with an installer, which automatically places each carset, drvc67, layout, etc. in the right folders of your Grand Prix Legends (c67) installation and creates the new gplh67.exe. Only at the first installation this needs to be activated following the simple steps which are here described in the attached guide.

For those who have already installed _v1 of the carsets, I recommend to delete or disregard what you already have and follow _v2 only. Each carset of _v2 is complete and autonomous; you may install all or only some. Each has been reviewed and updated as needed and containes only the files necessary for racing against the AI drivers at that event. Among the updates included in _v2, you will find the BRMs with covered engines, the early version of the Lotus 49 with a more closed cockpit, Jacky Ickx with his F2 Matra in the Nurburgring entry list, and many new details.

For the new comers I remember that GPLH67 Historical mod, is based on the seven car physics of the original Grand Prix Legends, but is also limited by the seven car slots available. It is formed by specific graphical carsets to be selected only from the GEM+ main menu to race on the eleven world championship specific tracks with defined entry lists. The historical carsets include specific HiRez car skins with the numbers and details used at any other race, specific mechanical parts, drivers faces, helmets and gears, new carcams and all needed textures to match colours and historical fidelity. Because of the mentioned seven car slots limit, not at every event it was possible to include all available modelled cars in the race entry list. Nevertheless a remarkable average of 90% of realistic entry list has been achieved.

I have produced these carsets editing original Grand Prix Legends's modder files, to whom goes most of the merit, working together with Irridux and Silence who I thanks for the admirable contributions they made available and for sharing the same aim of delivering the most accurate and hisorically faithful possible F1 carsets for Grand Prix Legends 1967. A special thanks to Bernd Nowak to have kindly created the installers for them, to Arturo Pereira who has created a specific Historical GPL67 mod main menu and to the moderators of this forum for the attention given to my works.

Unless diferently advised I will start to attach the first carset 01-SAF,  from next post. Therefore I would kindly ask NOT to reply to this topic until I will have completed my uploading with the last carset. In this way only this topic could be pinned and replace the previous ones. If you have comments please temporary post under another existing topic or create a new one.

Good historical racing!

EDIT:
For those who can only run at Kyalami and without all the car numbers and CTD at the other tracks, the problem is that they do not have a 'gpla67.ini' file in their main gpl folder.
The cause of this is that they have not applied the 67 patch. So to fix apply the 67 patch ( found here :  http://srmz.net/inde...5&hl=patch&st=0),  then delete the gplc67 and gplh67 exes before entering gem again.
First run a standard 67 session to rebuild the gplc67 exe and then an historic session to build a new gplh exe and all should be working now. (thanks to Duncan)

EDIT:
The dream became true. Since 29 December 2015, we have a V2 of the 1967 F1Historical Mod with more car slots and improved physics covering the entire season. The content of these initial 11 carsets has been incorporated and upgraded in V2, therefore V1 will not be further updated. See you All there  http://srmz.net/inde...showtopic=11180

Dear GPLers,

After posted the last carset, I would like to thank you for your nice words of appreciation, which of course I share with Marco, Chris and Bernd. Your interest compensates me for the many hours spent on this project of a Historical F1 1967 mod, even though some tuff periods.
Given the many outstanding mods GPL has, I thought the original GPL ’67 deserved also an important update without the need of changing its original challenging car physics, which in the end addicted most of us.

For a while I will take a break from further editing GPLH67, but here are my recommendations for any future improvement:

1. More real-life accurate performances of the AI drivers in the track specific drvc67.

2. Keep the actual 7 GPL ’67 car physics, but increase the number of available car slots from 7 to 14 (possibly 16).

I indeed estimated that, maintaining the concept of multiple carsets mod, if we could have for each car physic two slots and possibly three for the brm and the coventry, we would then be able to reproduce 100% realistic entry grids in all the World Championship races. Reproduce the same amount of car variants, in a single carset mod, would instead requires 35 different slots.

If someone, sooner or later, would like to work on the above suggestions, then I would for sure like to update and complete those 11 carsets.

Good historical races, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.

Nice mod, thanks!

I'm pretty sure I can see some of my work in here from 2003, such as the Al Pease Eagle and the Jonathan Williams Ferrari. I might be mistaken!

Unless you were part of the GPLEA or Nino's Garage, from where come the original - no race customized - Eagle and Ferrari skins, you are definitely mistaken!

Happy New Year to you and to all historical passionate GPLers.
