    it has historic open wheels versions 1 and 2 and searspoint track version 1.3 and rd classic f3@searspoint version 1.1 mod
  12. I already installed Sears when this thread first came up. I installed the original and the updates and installed them and was able to run Meganes at Sears offline just fine. I've downloaded the zip file, unzipped it and put the packages in the rF2 Packages folder. When I go to Manage Mods in the Launcher, it says the two packages can't be installed.

    BTW the skins look great. Thanks to all who did the work.

    Edit: When I went back to Manage Mods and unchecked mods only, I noticed a little asterisk next to one of the two Historic Mods listed. I right-clicked it and could chose to install it. Then I could go into offline mode and install F3 at Sears. Fantastic combo of cars and track. I've been to several events there over the years. This looks well done. Now to try it online .... And that works fine as well. Thanks, RD and Marco. :)

    Thats what I thought already ;)

    As this is something we never used before.
    A little background info on how this works.

    On the Historic Cars from ISI, an update has been created. So, we are using all functions from the original mod, just with new liveries. To install, I can either add the update to the mod, which makes it 1 click install, or do it as 2 seperate files. Reason why I choose to do it like this, is that the file size is very low now (around 25Mb while the whole package together is around 120Mb), but also, when we are going to do a new event, the guys who have installed the update now, do not have to do that again.

    For the next F3 race we will do, you just have to install the mod file, which will use the same car update ;) This makes downloads for future events way more smaller.

    Ow, and I am glad you guys like it, since it has costed a LOT of work to get this sorted, and create the packs in time ;)

    For those who are interested, I have uploaded a basic setup for the Spark F3 @ Searspoint.

    Link here
  17. Thanks for the setup, Marco. I want to try to make this and not be late like last time. :oops: According to the link above, my local time is listed as noon (California). However the website says it's Standard time, and we've already started DST. According to this site:
    the time will be 1:00 PM which takes into account DST. For example, as I write it's 21:00 GMT and 14:00 (2:00 PM) local.

    Also, last time, I could listen with TeamSpeak, but could not be heard, which may be for the best. ;) When I used the TeamSpeak test, my mic seemed to be working. Any thoughts or links for what I should be checking? TIA

    Not sure about that TS thing Jim. Perhaps you activated a Push-to-talk button, and did not press that? If the setup in TS shows the mic working, it should be working in the rooms as wel.

    As for the event, I will make sure it does not start early ;).

    I added the race details. 14 laps it will be. That will be just around 30 minutes I think.

    Did some practice laps just now. Came to a 1.57.xxx, with lots of room for improvement still.

    A small video ;) I do not know yet how to remove the box on the left side. Haven't looked into that yet.

    Another one on Searspoint, not mine ;). This is just about 1.55, so a bit nicer driver, and with the Eve.
  20. A tricky track for sure. Like Riverside, you've got to establish your line very early in the esses. Get it a little wrong early and pay the rest of the way.Enjoyed the vids. I love how you can see hotspots on the tires in rF2. The video also emphasizes how much the body rolls, which I hadn't noticed before.
