There are some Indycar MODs made in the past , I am a bit worried in giving the credits to the authors wrongly as it is not exactly well clear who were the authors of them , anyway I will try . In 2002 , Diego Noriega (Oggo) and Adriano Bariggi (Adry77) released the CART 2002 MOD . The same authors released the Champcar 2003 MOD . In 2006 , the RSP group in cooperation with IDT group released the ChampCar 06/05 for GP4 . Finally in 2008 , Meteoro405 released the Indycar 2008 MOD . I do not know if other MODs were released , if were let me know , I can edit this post at anytime .
This project , the Verizon Indycar 2018 MOD is actually an update of the the Verizon Indycar 2016 and 2017 MODs released by myself last year which were conversions from the great Rfactor MODs made by Vitor "Shadow" Souza in collaboration with Stex1973 and PA Popov . Their MOD was based in the IndyCar 2009 mod for Rfactor made by Mike Peters with many modifications . Thank you to them for giving me the permissions to convert their MODs .
As in the Indycar MODs 2016 and 2017 , there is a problem between the GP4 and the real Indycar . There are more than 11 teams and more drivers than 22 in the Official Indycar Season and the GP4 is limited to only 11 teams and 22 drivers in the grid.
The original RFactor MOD is quite detailed , having many different specifications according to the tracks of the season ( Street circuits , Road courses and Oval circuits ) . Some drivers , switch from one team to other in the middle of the season , sometimes changing even to teams with different engines , racing in the first part of the season in a team powered by Honda and in the remaining season in a team powered by Chevrolet . For all these reasons , I had to make changes and had to “forget” some driver. I apologize for that , I had to do that , otherwise would be impossible to create the performance's files and even the MOD configuration . You should find other weird things and errors , all related to the same reasons .
The Verizon Indycar 2018 introduced this year the Dallara UAK (Universal Aero Kit) and this made the conversion easier . However , the original authors made an unbelievable Rfactor MOD which has more than 305 different skins and was a bit hard to convert all the skins used without mistakes . Therefore , if you find any problem with the textures and shapes let me know . Beware that only the cars and helmets' textures and the cars shapes were update along with the teamart , the rest of the MOD has the same stuff of the others released previously .
Finally , the MOD is huge ( about10 GB ) , specially , the cars folder . I could reduce this folder by half but the quality would decrease a lot , then I decided to keep all the files with the original size . However , it is available for download the cars folder in lower resolution . After all the installation be completed , delete the original cars folder ( normal size ) and replace it by this one .
The MOD is not perfect for sure but was the best I could do . Improvements can be done , any help from the community would be most welcome . The MOD does not have many kilometers in testing and that's why some bugs are expected .
The MOD can be modify at anytime but do not forget to give the credits to all the authors who contributed in any way to its construction . Also do not forget to ask permission for those who do not agree with the policy of sharing works in the GP4.
Concluding , I want to nominate some guys who helped me a lot and taught me a lot of things , improving my skills through their huge skills and knowledges : Meteoro , AUS_Doug , Phantaman , Turbolover , n00binio and Kedy89 . Besides , I have to mention Monsieur Arnaud (EXCALIBUR) and Monsieur Bernard (GEZERE) who taught me how to deal with Zmodeler and will be both my mentors forever .
