JonnyA, put the files in layout folder and copied the driv66.ini into indy67 folder but when I start via GEM and look at Team Info menu have the original driv66 drivers displayed have I missed something ?.

I look forward to this JonnyO! :wizard:

Have Indy 1967 skins been done before? If not, I am surprised.. I can kinda remember reading something about it, but that might have been the other files like you have done for USAC 1966, JonnyA. :color:

Brian, did you use Gem+ to start GPL in the 66 Mod?

Yes, started via GEM+ for 1966 mod, originally had copied cars66 as carsU6 and installed the car files there, but have also tried it using cars66 folder, done usual things like delete gpc66.exe as well.

I had a carset ready for mod67 ...... but had a serious injury to the hard drive and lost all the work .... in the future I can make another.

'm currently working on the 1972 USAC with modThundercars.

Jonny,

Great carset you have given us. Now we can race on these great ovals in GPL with added realism! :up:
I have made a cars66 jpg for GEM to display when we use this excellent set. Make a backup of your current
version if you don't have a separate cars66 folder, so you don't lose the proper F1 jpg.  :)

Maybe someday the great Mod teams at the Repository can give this nice carset proper physics

Brian, if you only have the new driv66.ini file in the track folder then you only see the correct drivers in Team Info after you have entered that track. I prefer to place it in the Sierra/GPL folder for that reason.

Some people believe Jim Clark won the 1966 Indianapolis 500. His car & Al Unser's were painted the same :

races from 1966-1969. It is a nice mix of ovals(5) & road courses(4).You can also rename your g66 ini like "g66-f1" for temporary purposes and copy/rename this as g66 to score the 9 rounds with the 66 Mod. :wave:

Jonny,

Any plans for a player's car skin? The only one I could find in your loose bmp files in the car folder that has
a car number not being used by the ai, is car #30. I put it on my players car (C10 folder), but it needs an engine
cover.

Thank you for providing it. :bgrin:

The fall race at PIR. (You'll have to rename the first (spring event) to keep it from being overwritten by this one
if you want both in the track folder.)
