FVR V8 2009 V8 Supercars v1.5

Discussion in 'RACE 07 Mods' started by Günthar Rowe, Apr 19, 2009.

  1. Welcome to the FVR V8 2009 Aussie Racing Series v1.5 by the FVRFactor.com mod team!!

    This is a conversion of the all new 2009 rFactor FVR V8 mod and uses the same car models as from this mod.

    Features added to the GTR Evo release:
    - Custom Skin support using the "CustomSkins" folder .ini system
    - Animated wipers
    - Wet tyres and independent front and rear tyre physics models
    - Functioning Rain/Dirtscreen

    Known issues:
    - Wipers are limited in that they only semi-clear rain water drops on the right hand side of the rainscreen. This is an issue within Simbins code that all (yes, even the RHD Lister) only clear the left hand side fully. Seems to work ok at clearing the dirt build-up.
    - Non-adjustable Final Rear Diff Ratio. The Aussie V8 Series use fixed gearbox ratios with 4 final diff ratios to choose from. GTR Evo doesn't support this being adjustable, so we have included 4 default setups for both the Commodore and Falcon which are included in there own 7-zip file to go in your CarSetups folder located in your "My Documents".
    - If you select Heavy Rain, the AI won't get the correct tyres, this is due to Simbin not working corectly with more than 2 tyre compounds.

    Installation:
    - extract to main Race07 folder

    e.g.

    C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\**you-user-name**\race 07\

    This Mod wouldn't have been possible without:

    Downloading now, time for some more V8 Supercar action at Racedepartment.

    Quick question Gunthar (although it may be answered when I download it):
    Does this replace the 2008 mod, or can we keep both separately in our game?
     
  4. v1.5 is stand-a-lone mod
     
  5. We've been spoilt today. Thanks Gunthar and FVRFactor! :clap:

    Thanks Gunthar, I notoced that after installation.
    The new models look outstanding. :good:
     
  7. thanks, the BF is the v1.3b/1.4 but all new VE and FG
     
  8. OMG thank you Gunthar so much for all the hard work you put in this mod thank you so MUCH!!!!
     
  9. When starting a race with these cars I get a CTD. I open the minidump file in notepad but it is unreadable. I use GTR Evo 1.2.0.1 on Windows Vista 64 bits with the MotecAdd DX addon. Loading just my car in a practice session goes fine. Is there any relation with your standalone remark in previous post?
     
  10. Could you post a quick summary of improvements/changes since 1.4?
    I know this is the 09 season but was wondering what else has changed and if there is any point keeping 1.4.

    Thanks to all involved, this seems like a must-have mod :)

    Edit:
    I never know which setup to choose for the cars to get the correct gear ratios. Could you post which setup should be used on each of the tracks used in the season?
    Maybe for a future version when all the tracks are in the game they could come sorted into the correct folders for the tracks already. Not hugely important now because we don't have all the tracks for the real season.
     
  11. Online car filter fix
    patch v1.51

  12. I noticed that the 'gamedata' folder name is spelt wrong in the patch, so it wont automatically overwrite the files.
     
  13. poos!!

    will fix
     
  14. fixed now
     
  15. I run Vista 32bit + 1.2.0.1 + MoTeCAdd DX and can race and can run without CTD

  16. New VE and FG 3D Models and all the 2009 liveries

    With regards to the default setups, I just jump in the setup that loads, see how the 6th gear is running at the fastest point on track, and either move to a shorter gear 3.5:1 or 3.7:1 if I'm not at the redline or move to the 3.15:1 for the really long and fast tracks like Bathurst ...
     
  17. can you load AI ok on practice sessions?
     

  18. No problems here either: Vista x64 (and Windows 7 x64) + 1.2.0.1 + MoTeCAdd DX.

    Not a single CTD.
     
  19. No, loading AI in practice session gives a dump file. Loading only my car (=private practice) is no problem.
     
  20. I hope Race club will start hosting races with those cars
