    Hi Adrian,

    For sure it has evolved... Scratch made tires from Lemming77, chassis flex... +some add to engine but I need to redo them all
    Scratch cockpit From Zonder are really cool add too for GFX part(Lotus 79 & 80, Rebaque, Tyrrell).

    But it may be better to test it no ???

    Ari Antero is hosting this mod. SERVER name is -GP79 UNRESTRICTED-. He will change track each week.

    Thanks a lot to him.

    I was running this mod off line with the full complement of 79 mod cars. I ran these at the latest version of Nordschleife Tourist(n I believe), ran it with the Tyrrell, Lotus and the Brabham and no black screens, no slow down, the cars just ran great. Love the new tires and feel of the cars, enjoying these quite a bit, keep up the great work!

    There is some cool general information about ride height/underbody downforce "ground effects"/rake in the GP79 mod manual on pages 53-55. Some really interesting general information throughout the entire manual, not just on the history, but technical stuff about all the different cars and such as well, how they're driven and setup tips, etc. The manual came out like 7 years ago, probably the best manual I have ever seen for a game, let alone a free mod.

    Worst that I know is when someone is cutting, old version has "tire stack" that's why.

    I make new vmod tonight with Portugal GP :confused:

    I would have tested this a few times but cannot get the missing GP79_Car 0.432 error corrected.
    A full explanation of how to get the mod working would be good.

    Sorry if the information is available and I have missed it :)

    Hi Hunt,

    So maybe you should check first thread post or explain what you're getting wrong...

    Arnao,
    I have downloaded GP79_CAR_V0.432_fix.rfcmp and placed it in the Packages folder and renamed it GP79_CAR_V0.432.rfcmp
    and I get only one error GP79_CAR 0.432 missing :(

    Perhaps I should delete everything and start again?

    Thanks

    So as first post said you need to have 0.43 installed first
    Then just update Vehicle GP79_CARS if you already copy fix in your package
    Just CAR is updated with this fix
    CU

    You don't rename the file either. Mod won't find it.

    Thanks Jim,
    That is what I was doing wrong!

    I copied GP79_CAR_V0.432_fix.rfcmp into the Packages folder (making no change to the file name) and then clicked the Manage Mods button to access the Mod Manager. In the Mod Manager the new file was visible and marked as not installed. Selecting the option to install the new file; the process was complete.
    Fired up the Online Race option and selected GP79 server to test the mod and the mod was now marked as installed :)

    Job done!

    Is anyone creating a league version like the rFactor1 version?

    All cars with Cosworth power and Williams FW07 car chassis but with all sounds from unrestricted version.

    Arnao has stopped development on this mod for now. I don't think he has any plans on a league version.

    This is indeed sad news, I loved where this mod was going, the work that was put into the mod was great and the new graphic's were looking really good!
