Hi all,

This is a texture update for the 1969 McLaren M7A, M7B and M7C. Drop these files in the car folders to install the update. This means putting them in the ...\Sierra\GPL\cars\cars69 directory . Do not replace the original car folders with the ones in this zip archive, but rather merge them together so all files are in the same car folder.

For example:

Merge folder c03 together with the original c03 folder, resulting in a single c03 folder located in the ...\Sierra\GPL\cars\cars69 directory. Do the above for all car folders to install the update.

These files are compatible with Irridux' 1969 season update, and the original, unmodified 1969-Extra mod. If you wish to install the Irridux 1969 season update after this update, please reinstall this update after you've installed the Irridux 1969 season update for everything to work correctly.

Online, car liveries have been divided equally under the starting numbers where possible, so not only the orange McLaren Cars livery can be driven online, but also the burgundy Antique Automobiles livery, as well as the blue Team Lawson livery. If you join the server chosing the 'M7A ZA-ES-ROC' graphics option, the starting number you'll be assigned to will decide whether you are racing in an an orange McLaren Cars car, or a blue Team Lawson car.

Offline, all these liveries are also available for the player. To install a livery, go into the car folder, and when there is an option available, click on one of the subfolders. Then, please copy the respective files into the main car folder. There is also a preview picture included so you know which livery you are installing. Standard, all player cars for every graphics option except the M7B low winged versions have the McLaren Cars livery installed. The M7B low winged graphics options have the Antique Automobiles livery installed.

Here are the main features of the McLaren M7A, M7B and M7C update:

- new car textures
- new wheel textures
- different wheels depending on graphical option chosen
- new steering wheel texture
- new engine textures
- optional choice for the player to drive the works, Elford or Van Rooyen car
- changing AI skins based on event, including the handwritten driver names on car tub

Enjoy!

I see Dangermouse has put a 7z up :up: . The attachment is the same file, however zip compresses a lot less than 7z. I uploaded a zip file because everybody can open that. If you have the WinRAR program or 7zip you can open the 7z file and extract what it contains.

Thanks Tommie. Really good stuff, excellent work. And the install: flawless. Chapeau.

One question: how can I use yours updates (This excellent McLaren one as well as the brilliant Lotus update) and also keep the objects in the car mirrors?

The Brabham BT24 and BT20 updates are already finished and will be released in the coming weeks pending approval from people I used some files from. So stay tuned! I'll most likely start working on a Brabham BT26A update tomorrow, it should be finished well ahead of Halloween if nothing comes up in the meantime.

I'm glad the install was easy :) . Hopefully nobody runs into any problems.

For the McLaren, you need to delete the following files from your folders to keep the objects in the mirrors:

c03: derm
c16: c16mirr
c17: rermhulm
c18: serm, sermhulm
c31: c31mirr
c33: c33mirr
c34: %rm
c35: 35m
c39: ierm

For the Lotus 49b, you need to delete to following files:

c05: flrm, flrmrind, flrmsiff
c07: 07m
c21: vlrmbonn, vlrmlove, vlrmrind,vlrmsiff
c22: wlrm, wlrmlove, wlrmrind, wlrmsiff
c27: lrm, lrmsiff
c28: lrm

That's it :) .

If you would like any of the cars I updated painted in a particular color, just let me know and I'll try to provide some files to make it happen :)
