    Hello!

    This might be bit longshot, but could you guys help me to get in touch with these people(or better ask them) permission to convert 1967 mod:

    Slimjim
    Ben Hur
    Chipsy69
    h_m_m_77
    Clint Davis, aka Vivifyer
    car body mesh... GPL / GPLEA modding group
    engines.and engine textures... GPLEA / Slimjim / Thunderchild

    Also some other people involved, but I can ask them myself. Permission from gpl is most likely impossible? 20170522203100_1.jpg

    What I have already done:
    Converted the mod
    Made albeido maps
    Basic physics taken from bt20
    Added realistic engines
    Added realistic weight
    Added each car unique ultrachassis



    Other way to so this! Does anyone want to create these cars? Sounds and psychics are already very good :)

    As far as I can remember, GPLEA (original creators) never gave permission to convert their cars to begin with, so indeed it appears to be a long shot.
    The F1Classic guys never really cared about permissions, giving credit to people's work, etc...
    If I were you, I would either ask GPLEA and respect their wish, or go for the conversion without asking.

    Wow, that's quite opposite!
    Sounds quite like "if I were you I would either forgive him or kill him" :).

    Agreed. Why get a full field from a year, with proper cars, drivers, teams and sponsors, when you can get a random fictional car ? :)

    For me its different kind of cars that reflect to real world vs the fake ones :)

    Plus driving beside:
    Jim Clark
    Danny Hulme
    John Surtees
    Jack Brabham
    Etc
    Is just the reason why I play sim racing everyday :)

    Don't bother with him, he's happy in his world. Meanwhile I also reached out at SRMZ, let's see what happens. I'd like to see the GPLEA Brabham, BT20 or BT21 instead of the stock one. By the way, you probably don't need my help but I made some of the "new" official rF2 BT20 skins for the update the other year and placed fake look-alike logos exactly where real life logos were for the Eagle, Honda, and Ferrari, and also used the most appropriate colors (inc. #14 Braby).

    Provided that agreements are given!

    It's always my dream to find GPL on rF2.

    Thank you Postipate for this idea :)

    Hi, I don't have any friends in GPLEA. Not sure where that got assumed. I only said to do what Guimengo did, and write at SRMZ as that is the biggest community of GPL that I know of. It would be the best chance of getting any kind of permission. Hopefully some one there will be able to give a proper approval.
