And how about 1981? :D

Message par d4nf1c le Ven 21 Avr - 22:07

Hi, everyone.
So... it's been four months since I last posted here on the forum saying that there is actually a 1981 mod being produced for F1C.
The news I have to bring you is... it is still being produced. Don't lose hope! Very Happy
Apart from that, what I can tell you is the people behind this mod at the moment are only two and this is the reason why it might take way longer than we have anticipated.
The other reason is Pedro Ripping Corpse, the guy who produces all those wonderful cars for GP4, has been away from modding for professional reasons for as long as these four months since I last sent some news.
Does this mean we are not going to have a mod? The first answer I can give you is... no, it doesn't. We – and by we I mean myself, d4nf1c, and neiln, who has already produced so many fantastic pieces of work for this game, including some conversions from Pedro's cars to 1980, 1982, 1983 and 1984, along with joint work with OnMario, Luigi 70, Wookey and others in producing the great 1976, 1977, 1978, and 1979 mods – have been dedicating as much time as we can to the mod. The process is slow, though, both for neiln and for me. It will be done when it's done, I guess.
In practical terms, what this means is we have two people working on it who really like the idea of having race-by-race accurate liveries for every car that qualified for a race in the years produced.
Even the research itself is time consuming, since, even if we have the wonderful photo library from this site for consulting, there are still some cars that have little to no photos (at least not clear ones) to help us portray everything with precision.
Anyhow, the good news I want to bring you is we have decided late last year to start doing the backmarkers Pedro would not do for GP4 (which takes only 11-12 teams) and that we have reached the point where all backmarkers are actually finished. Neiln has once again done some tremendous work producing details for every qualifying backmarker you can think of for that year and I have been working on polishing the job by detaching wings, creating a drivable cockpit for the cars and getting rid of long shadows whenever they appear. I'm also in charge of organizing the .mas files and editing some of the liveries based on neiln's original pieces.
What we have then is Ensign, March, Osella (FA1B and FA1C), Theodore, and the two qualifying Tolemans are already good to go. As a plus, neiln has already finished the race-by-race Ferraris and is now working on his favorite, McLaren.
That being said, we'll keep on waiting for Pedro's release to see if he authorizes us to convert his new cars and we'll be doing the other cars when time, patience and work allow us to. From today on, I'll be posting some photos for those who are interested in seeing this mod happen and telling you where we're at when I have the chance.
Today's first treat, the first car we worked at for this mod, the Long Beach Ferrari on track and on the spinner.
Best wishes,
d4nf1c



PS: whatever modding help you can offer will be most welcome. Send me a private message and I'll be glad to answer promptly. Very Happy

Regardless of if there is people interested or not in this 1981 Formula One Season mod, my best recommendation is: create the mod that you would love to have and enjoy.

...then, feel free for share it, or not to share it.

Here it is the old 1981 mod by Neiln1: http://www.race4sim.com/f1-1981-mod-by-neiln1/

I have my own private mods (now I am working in Estoril 14 KM circuit). Because of this, I am not particulary interested in any Formula One mods.

Best wishes, d41f1c. Keep up with the good work!

A taste of Monaco for you guys.

This is Marc Surer in his last race with Ensign N180B, the Monaco Grand Prix.
The driver crossed the finish line in sixth position back then.

The early version is ready, and I must to say I had a lot of fun with my old  idol "Jacquot"...

... anni fa, qualcuno mi disse : " non mi sono mai piaciuti i mod con troppe mescolazioni di generi diversi ! "
, adesso posso comprendere meglio quelle le sue sagge parole, che per anni mi hanno tenuto il fiato in sospeso.
Grazie molto, e continua a sostenere che tale affermazione possa restare uno stile di pensiero altrettanto corretto

And here is Brian Henton in Monza, one of the two races where Toleman actually managed to qualify this year.
Derek Warwick could do it in Las Vegas for the last race of the year as well.
Notice the addition of the rain tread texture for the tires.
There were many rain events throughout the 1981 season.
It rained for the Monza race, not as heavily as in Montreal, though.
One amazing detail about this one is that even though 14 cars out of the 24 did not finish the race, Henton could do it, not scoring points as he finished last, but this is the first time (and the only one this year) Toleman races a full F1 race. Very Happy
