For all you retro petrol heads

    Thanks to philrob for letting me release this conversion.

    Aside from the actual conversion I have,
    Removed 90% of the trees (they usually don't convert very well) and I Screenshot_f1_1967_brm_port_13-12-117-1-11-2.jpg Screenshot_f1_1967_brm_port_13-12-117-1-13-1.jpg added better trees and bushes.
    Added 3D grass
    Replaced 60% of the buildings with higher polygon buildings and grandstands.
    Fixed the cramped pitlane.
    Added an invisible bumpy road surface.
    Created AI driving line.
    Made TV cameras.
    Improved textures to better suit AC's lighting.

    This tracks looks best in clear conditions between 17:30-18:00 (evenings)
    There are 22 pitboxes and 22 places on the starting grid.

    PS I haven't made a track map because I don'\t know how to, feel free to make one if you know how.

    Oporto was only used twice for the Portugese GP, the first time in 1958 when Stirling Moss won in a Vanwall, Mike Hawthorn was second in a Ferrari Dino (and set fastest lap) and Stuart Lewis-Evans was third in an older Vanwall. (Yanks Phil Hill and Carroll Shelby retired.) The track was incredibly rough and the drivers didn't like it, but it was used again in 1960 with a different cast of characters (Jack Brabham won in a Cooper T53).

    Good. Road texture improvable but good. AI: driver in pole position stay lock in grid. At the end of first lap all the drivers come back to the pit. Fix this second problem copy fast_line.ai from AI folder to Data folder and rename into ideal_line.ai. Map works good. There is a map.

      If I can get around to it, I'm very busy with real life at the moment. Looking at the problem I think the start grid needs moving forward, might look at it today or tomorrow.

    Wow!!
    Rating it without even trying it first because I loved it in GPL and I appreciate the effort.
    Any chance of converting some of the 1967 F1 RF1 tacks in which Pil was involved.
    Nurburgring, Mosport, Mexico, and Watkins Glen to name the ones I need for a '67 Championship.
    And thanks to Phil as well.

      Sorry but due to work commitments I'll be retiring from track modding this week. But if, like me, you love 60's racing you'll soon be able to speed around Aintree. I'll be releasing my last track mod at the weekend.
