    Part of gargantuan rF1 GTPC mod is going to be converted for rF2 in 2020.

    Vehicles will be in their Le Mans 1984 configuration at first.
    The goal is to convert near all the 1984 grid but initial release will contains 3 vehicles:
    Lancia LC2
    Jaguar XJR-5
    Porsche 956


    Target for the 1st release is june 2020. I was not in the team of original modders but the conversion is authorized.

    Here are the creators of the rf1 mod named Grand Touring Prototype C (GTPC):

    Hi folks,

    Some good news of our work in progress.

    The first one is that since mid-december, I’m not anymore a lonely modder working on my side but we are now a converting team ! 2 users from the forum entered the project :

    *doddynco have accepted to enhance the sounds when the mod will be in final stage. :)

    *Bernd is the rainmaker of the project even if he doesn’t want to dance for it. He’s in charge of the wipers animation & the ripples. You can watch in this picture that the work is going well in that area :

    With them in our squad, that means the quality of the conversion is being pushed at another level.

    On physics side, things are also going well. Turbo engine is newly implemented. The Lancia will came with 2 turbo mapping. The default one will give you 745hp (top speed 342km/h) and it's the mapping to use for long races. The other one will give you 800hp, some extra RPMs, some extra fuel consumption, but way less longevity. It will be only for qualifications (or sprint races for those able to use it wisely).

    If all goes well, we'll start to work on 2nd car in few weeks. So in the next ‘’roadmap’’, it will be the right time to show some Jaguar’ screenshots…

    Roadmap update - January 2020

    As promised, we have some screenshots of our 2nd model. Jaguar XJR5 is now fully converted for the graphical part.

    [​IMG]

    About physics, we have authorization to use data inputed by Richard Wilks from AMS conversion. It's a good news because it will increase the quality of rf2 physics. For example, inertia values are more accurate in the AMS conversion than in original rf1 release.

    Talking about rf1, we are still using the original skins of the mod, which were in 2048 x 1024 pixels. It will be better to redone those skins in 4096 x 2048 resolution. If you are interested by painting those cars, contact me by PM.

    After some researches, we've opted for white headlights for both Lancia & Jaguar.

    Stay tuned...

    Are your Jags going to have the Davey Jones edition with the secret compartment to transport drugs around the world?

    Roadmap update - February 2020

    Another month has passed, another 3D model is nearly fully converted. Porsche 956 still need rainy stuff and proper physics but we can show you some screenshots of the WIP.

    Seems like a Porsche test somewhere in germany

    14 Porsche 956 & 2 Porsche 962 took part of Le Mans 1984

    Not so bad for a rf1 mod released 5 years ago...

    [​IMG]
    This car is coming with a nice wiper, isn'it?

    About the Jaguar, we are pleased to say that physics are finished. Initial release is still planned for june, but maybe it will come with few extras.


    About bonus, I leave you with 2 edited screenshots:
