Looking forward to it. I'll most likely post a picture of all 22 Race and Test cars like I've done for the last few seasons once I have the mods to use. As for RD duty for the season opener, I may do that again as well unless someone else decides to be RD.




So I've been trying the trackpack a bit. I had an old version of the S11 mod which I updated, installed the thing and go. Two issues so far:

1) I've actually been meaning to post this for a while, how can I fix this? I could bear it with the default tracks, since it'd show the minimap as usual but with modded tracks there's this obnoxious white square:



I read around that I'll probably have to edit f1graphics.cfg to hide the default HUD, but wanted to check back with you guys.

2) Some tracks are giving me massive FPS drops. Yes, I do run the mod at max quality (1080p), but when I installed tracks individually, I never had this problem. On tracks like Emmeloord or Istanbul, it's a drop from 60 to around 30. On the Osterreichring and Road America, it's unplayable. I suspect loading the whole trackpack may be causing the problems, so I'll test later. Kinda suspicious also about the white square I mentioned earlier.

So far no AI-related problems. Will probably re-test tomorrow, as I have a free afternoon and report back.

@Carlos
1) Ingame graphics options, turn of the overlays

2) Never had that either until a while ago. Check the cars.wad size in the mod's wadcache folder. For me 900MB seems to be the critical point. Once it exceeds that, I get massive FPS drops on pretty much every track. Resized some textures to reduce the size of the cars.wad, that fixed it.

cars.wad is sitting at 833MB so it's a possibility. One weird thing that happened is that I set CSM to load one track (Road America) and it worked fine once. When I started another race (without having changed anything) I started having problems again. All GP4 default tracks work OK.

The newer tracks have got very large tex files compared to the original tracks, coupled with the large tex files that the mods use, could explain why your frame rate has dropped. Are you running the game with lod_0 only? Running with lower lods might help. The car and helmet tex in the mod are saved with the TGA option, saving as DDS/DXT5 will reduce the file size and maybe increase your frame rate.

It might also help to delete unnecessary files that are just leftovers from e.g. the original cars. In my experience only the total filesize of the cars.wad matters, no matter whether the textures are assigned to a shape or not.

Queens Birthday long weekend here in Melbourne. Had the buckets of soapie water out today, giving the new Demon machinery a nice old washdown, ahead of the season opener....


Re the mod, i hope we can get a really good camera shot setting where the drivers helmet can be shown off a bit. That way all the hard work some people put into helmets, can be seen....

Hello guys,

I've quite been off the grid for at least a couple of weeks ... well this has been because of something exciting things in my life.

To make a long story short: I've become a daddy over that period of time. I'm the proud dad of a wonderful little baby girl called 'Yara'.

Life is really at it's sweetest right now!

I'll try and become a little bit more active over time again now and finish the Snake Motorsports contender for upcoming season.


If you are racing, keep on racing and get some points!
