Stoffel Vandoorne to McLaren-Honda 1.1

This replaces J. Button for S. Vandoorne at McLaren-Honda (Ideal for season 2)

  1. BigEarsGaming
    This mod replaces Jenson Button at McLaren-Honda with Stofffel Vandoorne, Since there is not currently a way to change his nationality he is currently listed as British, but his name shows up everywhere buttons would have done!

    I am currently working on the next version which will update the drivers date of birth, nationality etc to be the same as Vandoorne's but we currently do not know of a way to change the flag!


    To Install:
    1. Navigate to you SteamApps Common F1 2016 Directory usually found here (?:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\F1 2016)

    2. Then go into the localisation folder and place the language_eng.lng file found in the .rar in here! REMEMBER TO BACK UP THE ORIGINAL!

    It is as simple as that, if you have any problems just leave them in support and I'll address them accordingly!

    Features -
    • Stoffel Vandoorne's name featured on leader boards and tables etc.
    • Vandoorne's Date of Birth instead of Jenson Button's
    • Vandoorne's Place of Birth instead of Jenson Button's
    • Vandoorne's Vehicle number listed instead of Jenson Button's (This does not take effect on the car)
    Planned Features -
    • Vandoorne's face to show up instead of Button's on grid line up's etc.
    • The nationality and flag to be listed as Belgian not British
    • Vandoorne's Helmet (Or Concept)

    Also thanks to CW for showing me how to do this!

    Fabulous! I would love you if you could do these aswell:
    Bottas to Ferrari (replacing Kimi)
    Rosberg to williams (replacing bottas)
    Werhlein to Mercedes (replacing rosberg)
    Lynn to Williams (replacing massa)
    Is it possible to change their helmets and nationalities?
    I would also love if you could change their faces, e.g Bottas' face replacing kimi's, Werhleins replacing rosbergs etc.
    You could also use Nasr's face for lynn or any similar face.
    And could you add this to the current modpack? many thanks, would love this, this would be the best mod ever for me!

    Good stuff, can't rate it 5 since it's still work in progress with Helmets and Numbers on cars, but it's defo enough for Career mode enthusiasts like me.

    Just to throw suggestions out since this helps make driver changes optional; Gasly to STR (option to replace Sainz or Kyvat), Magnussen to McLaren (replace Alonso), Kyvat to Renault (replace Magnussen), Wehrlein to Mercedes (replace Rosberg), Bottas to Ferrari (replace Kimi), Rosberg to Williams (replace Bottas). For Season 2 and beyond these suggestions.
