Hello! I present you F1 1975 0.9! Mod is still W.I.P. Please read this text carefully! This mod is conversion from awesome F1 1975 LE mod https://www.rfactorcentral.com/detail.cfm?ID=Simracers F1 1975 LE By ChiefWiggum and Dave Purdy It was released only year ago and it has awesome updated cockpits and car liveries! Every rF1 and F1 fan should defenetly download it! They also have league if you are interested: http://www.simracers.de/forum/ rFactor 1 mod was originally done by CREW for F1 Challenge '99–'02, so this mod has come long journey. Big thank you for these guys! They really have made awesome job with the mod and I can thank these guys for 1000 hours of simracing in my life. One of the biggest reasons why I'm still here. Also big thanks to guys who converted team CREW mod to rF1 with name F1 seven 1975 IPE https://www.rfactorcentral.com/detail.cfm?ID=F1 Seven 1975 LE and IPE v1.1 Amazing mod and I got lot of inspiration from that mod with the psychics Also thanks to ISI/Studio 397 They released BT44B from steam and are only reason why I even started whole project. Everybody can thank these guys for making possible to make car psychics so enjoyable as they are now. Lot of learned from their blog post about making cars! Very big thank you for rF2 community. 3 months ago I had zero knowledge how to do this, but reading this forum has been very helpful. Keep up the good work, and if somebody want help with they mod, just PM me! Im happy to help and test your mods! It has now been 2-3 months before I started this project. Have to say this has been very rewarding experience. My first goal was just to make this mod to myself (and first version was only made to myself), but after that I taught that i could make this good enough for release. Thanks for giving permission to convert it I want to make very clear, that all appreciation, respects and "thanks you" should go to original rF1 and F1 99-02 makers! I had the easiest part of making this mod (REALLY!). I cant believe how talented these guys are making so awesome looking/feeling mods for FREE. That really shows how good sim racing community really is. Hopefully in future we could have less fighting between each others, and be more focused on racing. Of course all negative feedback is still welcome Also big thank you for Mauro, who spend more time testing this mod than me! Without his feedback my progress would be much slower. Updating of this mod continues after this release! It's not yet finished and I will take little modding brake after this release and just enjoy racing. The original idea was to make this to myself and haven't got enough time to race with this. Engine can blown any time (like in real F1), but remember to shift correctly! Bad shifting can reduce your engine life time very much In the end I want to give special thanks to ChiefWiggum! This guys has been making so many great mods for rF1 and he still is making them! That is true passion. Also thanks for him, for making so high quality cars for this mod! They look like they are made scratch for rF2. And cockpits looks very very good! You made my favorite era of F1 cars much more better! Happy racing! Hopefully everybody has good time with this mod! Atleast I have ps. I you have any good videos or pictures, send to this thread! Would love to watch! Please do not upload this mod to other sites. I will keep updating this, so would be better if links would come from me.
