Interlagos '70

Yesterday, 07:52 AM

Posted by Pablo_Fernandez in GPL-Track Database
INTERLAGOS  70'
Autodromo de Interlagos
São Paulo, Brasil

Track Type: Race Track
Length: 4.95m
Standard version: 1.0
Track years: 1969 - 1977
Idea and Track Creator: Pablo Fernandez
========================

General Information:
========================
When Pablo told me that his was starting to build a new Interlagos, I offered myself to help him, because I spent the whole 70’s there attended to races and after mid 70’s racing myself. At the beginning I was helping him to make the track the more accurate as possible regarding banked corners, gradients, corner angles, etc… When I did the first test I realize that something very important was missing. The Bumps !!!, Interlagos was famous for it´s bumps. In fact the track was a torture for every driver of every class of motor racing. I race there F Vee, F Ford and Touring cars. I had permanent bruises on my back and knees. The track was so bumpy that it was considered the closest thing to Rallie Racing ! Since it´s first WDC, every driver complained a lot about the condition of the track. It turns out that the fault wasn´t the asphalt per se, but the soil underneath the asphalt is not suitable for laying asphalt over it.
So, Pablo began to put all the bumps there to make it the most accurate as possible. As we started to test, it became clear that for GPL physics it was going to be impossible to drive. So we decided to cut some bumps out. Now the track is drivable and it dind´t loose it´s main characteristic: The bumps.
GPL tend to produce very flat tracks. One example is Zandvoort. The Dutch track should be much more bumpy than it is as so Monaco, Silverstone, Brands Hatch, Monza etc…
Probably Interlagos will be the first GPL track that brake this “flatness” barrier. I hope the next generation of GPL tracks will be more “bumpy accurate” than the old tracks.
Driving Tips : Memorize where the big bumps are and brake and change gears BEFORE them.
While racing try to listen the songs “Shake, Rattle and Roll” and “Only The Strong Survive”, it might help a bit !!
Have a nice race and fun.

Clear Mirrors For 67X-6 Cars

Yesterday, 10:33 PM

I've been unable to find clear mirrors for the 67x-6 carset. Obviously doing all the cars would be way too much work. I run the -6 carset exclusively with an appropriate Driver.ini so I can use thes great cars and physics on all my 400 tracks. Mostly interested in the Brabhams, BRM 115,Lotus 49, Ferrari 312, Cooper T81/86, Eagle TIG, Honda RA300, and Mclaren M5a. Basically the original cars plus the McLaren. Tried to adapt from original 67's with no luck. Anyone done this ? I've managed to delete the arms, but no luck with mirrors.

Menu Issues With Opengl V2

30 Nov 2016

Hello everybody.

I've some problems running GPL with openGL V2. Specifically, all the navigations in the words in the menus are not readable, the "live view" of the track and navigation through menus are very slow and there are frequent crashes to desktop.

I send a pic illustrating the fonts problem. This particular picture is under Linux, but the same happens under Windows (maybe less marked, though).

Thanks for any help and I'm sorry if it was treated in other thread (not found by me).

EDIT: I'm running GPL in a laptop with intel i7 processor and an integrated HD4500 "GPU".

Cheers, Marcos.
