    Will there be any real race logos issued for this track in the final version or in the add on as in the Le Mans 1977 and 1991 versions by VLM?
    thanks in advance.

    Sorry, at this stage there is no plan to use real names or real logos, and I don't expect that to change

    I made real sponsors names to replace the fake ones and when I save the .mas file the track doesn't show in the game ???I did this update looking at real videos of the '67 race and it's very accurate .This track is really fantastic and that's a real plus for it.Too bad it doesn't work...

    I'm not an expert at modding but I had the same issue while modifying the AIW on some tracks. My problem was that I was changing the name of the component while doing the packaging. Make sure you're using the same name as the original and only change the version. That solved it for me

    It doesn't work.That packaging system is a real mess as the way to add new skins....

    did you use the sheet of logos that are included in the mas file, the real sponsors( s_SponsorMain_alb) i dont think they are called in the track model?
    or did you make your own ?

    Ned,
    track now working great, i have also changed textures to DX11/Albedo.The track needs further work on the Albedo levels as things are flashing everywhere.
    I will post a link for you in a conversation/PM.
    Give me a few minutes to upload.
    i have posted link in a conversation with you, never used it before so hope it works.

    Hi @Ned52, @philrob, would you guys mind starting a separate thread for your mod, please :)

    In case anyone was interested, and i think i've mentioned it before, almost all of the substitute sponsor signage i've made are deceased prominent scientists and/or mathematicians. Occasionally they somehow relate to the brand/product they're replacing.
    Keep an eye out for Uncle Albert's Precision Spatial Chronographs :D
    If anyone feels like doing some nerdy research, I'd love to hear if anyone discovered some other not-so-coincidental parallels :)

    No work on an update yet, but hopefully over the coming months i can do a bit.
    But for now, to celebrate the time of year, here is an excessive quantity of screenshots, featuring the modified Howston G4 (see sig, but with as-yet unreleased body mesh modifications (hopefully soon))

    a little too early for a 512 :)
    Maybe 412.
    But, of course, these are all just Howston G4s with modified physics and skins and body meshes and wheels ;)

    just to cross-promo, the body shapes and wheels have been updated in the G4 mod, and also there is an adjustable rear wing on the white cars.

    if you're subscribed to the G4 mod on the workshop, you're all set :)

    Since it's Le Grand Circuit related, here is a 15min "studio cut" of the ambient short film i made to promo the G4 mod and LGC.

    and the director's cut - 30min

    I just drove Le Grand again and I really hope this track will get some further love. It is such a promising start. Woochoo, I really hope you haven't lost motivation and I want to thank you for everything you have done so far to make rf2 that bit more special.
