Actually we got 2012 Melbourne update



You can surely find it in a gp4forever site.

I prefer to make current F1 tracks before others like Paul Ricard. Maybe someday though...

Graphically, the GP4Forever tracks are amazing. Probably the best ever made for GP4. But sometimes the Magic Data and CC lines are not perfect, which makes the track less fun to actually play. Also, they don't release the tracks publicly.

I have made MD and CCL updates for a bunch of their tracks but I can't release an updated .DAT file because they don't permit it. So I'm having a go at making tracks myself.

@TomMK : You are absolutely free to start to work on Melbourne but I wanted to let you know F1Virtual has a 99% done New Melbourne version (you can check very last pictures from this gallery for screens).

@TomMK:
It seams to be a general problem with many new tracks or track updates, and not just with the ones of GP4Forever, especially what track grip and fuel consumption concerns.
So, why don't you release the MD (as *.md3 and/or *.tmd) and CC (as *.ccl)?
I think this would not confront the GP4Forever policy, because it would not be connected to their tracks!

@Lo2k : That looks amazing, much better than I can do graphically. But (and forgive me if this sounds rude, it's not supposed to) those pictures are from April last year. I doubt this will be released.

@gitanes : Yes I completely agree. At the moment there is no-one producing tracks with Magic Data that is calibrated to a performance file and physics file, so the result is we get great looking tracks that all behave completely differently. My aim is to produce a basic update with really good MD and CCL for as many tracks as I can, that compliments the GP4 Central carset so people who want to actually play the game get a better, more consistent experience.

I've released some MD and CCL files on GP4 Central already. I've posted Melbourne today.

I need some volunteers to help me test the new tracks I'm making for release on GP4 Central.

I'm hoping to make a least 5 or 6 track updates throughout the year, the first being Melbourne 2013 which is coming along nicely.

PM me if you're interested in being part of the testing team.

Thanks a lot Tom for all of your work! :)


P.S. Which trackpack would you suggest in order to simulate the season? :)

There's no trackpack for 2013 yet, and it's not likely there will be one that's available to everyone. Start with F1 Virtual tracks and go from there.
