    well, I didnt played the latest AC release (seems its 2.1b), so I cant say hows the actual visual stage :) if the purely DrDoomslabs scratch made permission correct stuff is there or not. if not yet then just later ;)

    also, I think they said something about contact the GPLEA team member and that they got green or something like that.

    if you mean the Bazzas mod is some F1LR opponent stuff, then I am ice cold, no rivality :)
    however, if you still wish to play the wip at least, try contact Mauro.

    I'm confident DrDoomslab isn't making the models from scratch. He's sourcing the models from somewhere else, maybe legitimately or maybe not. Any modder building from scratch for a racing game wouldn't design the Brabham to have 286k polygons and not provide LODs.

    Compare that to the BRM which has 159k polygons, a little low for proper AC cars and, again, no LODs. His Lotus 33 is the Kunos Lotus 25 with the wheels replaced which is why it has LODs... he didn't even bother to change the LODs to the same wide tires. The Matra is most definitely from rF2's Eve as it only has 55k polygons.

    Knowing that Bazza and DrDoomslab crank out around 5 mods per month plus the massive packs that are obvious conversions (GT Legends, etc.) without LODs, I just don't believe there is any scratchbuilding going on. Lots of mix & matching via 3dSimEd is the extent of their scratchbuilding.

    IMHO Bazza's physics are usually reasonable attempts, but they're never great. Is the mod fun to drive? Yes. Is it good simulation? I have doubts.

    I see... to be honest I dodnt monitoring somehow deeply the "home" of the Bazzas mod, I mean his F1 1967 related thread at F1C site. Ive just noticed some time ago there appears some new 3d model work screenshots, so I took a look... it would be a big letdown to me, if the vehicles would came frome some 3d model library, yet hard to believe such models would be available fro free download.

    well, can be DrDoomslab is just experienced 3d modeler, but he is not game designer at all. that would answer the polygonal stage. it is not hard to make any eyecandy highpolygonal 3d model infact. yet a lot harder is to make such model to look believable, still polygonal and texture logic optimalised for games. depends on the current game engine.
    for me are the true artists the modders of our dated sims like GPLEA team and his GPL Papyrus game overhaul, or a few people from later sim mod scene, who made addons for sims like F1C, GTR, GTL or rF.

    FM7? Brabham, Eagle and Honda at least could be possible... But then they should have LODs :D

    I know what is the usual source of models and assets when models are baked so quickly. The source is called "got it from a friend".

    The worst part is realising how many people are falling for that, seems like the only simulation which they need is having something that looks somewhat similar, and whole simulation is done.

    I could actually ignore ripped models if the credit was made, it wouldn't be elevated like a legit mod, and it would have legit truly honest physics. However, to get the model seems like it is all that matter for so many...

    To make it worse there are many fairly popular youtubers who has little notion what they are talking about and what they are spreading, or maybe they just doesn't care.

    This carnival is harming the real thing.

    I have drove the 312/67 mod. I think it is great, but physics are a bit lacking. To be more precise, I think that tires lacks a lot of lateral force.

    I hope Postipae hasn't lost his touch with modding and continue on. It might not be popular to say, but some conversions which he has released aren't developed enough, as for example 1979 F1 mod which was my personal #1 mod in rF1. This being said, I appreciate his work a lot, but sometimes less is more. Or more is more is true too :D I mean it is too much of content for one guy to do well, thats ton of cars.

    Bazza's physics have always been trash, especially suspension geometry.
