    A new addition to the Monday GT night :)

    The instructions. PLEASE read this carefully.

    To join the server, you first need to install the Maserati car. This involves 2 files, the car itself, and the sound file. To install, do the following:

    - IMPORTANT! If you had a prior version installed, remove the MOD in the MOD Manager + the files from your package folder first!.
    - Download the zip file from here.
    - Extract the 2 files in the Package folder
    - Open you rFactor2 Mod Manager
    - UNTick the Show Mods Only option
    - Look for the MaseratiGT_Cup version 1.4
    - Right click, and select install
    - Now look for the MaseratieGT Sound (type = sound).
    - Right click, and select install.

    The car is now installed, and useable in the All Cars and Tracks function of the single player.

    Start your Online Multiplayer game, and in the server selection screen, download the mod from the server. You should be able to join now.

    Yes, please! Haven't really tried these cars yet, but heared they were fun, so.... :)
  4. When I tried to run this in single player the loading stopped near the end and gave me this error mess "Not enough bones in anim file WIPER.ANM to match mes"


    EDIT: It seems to work if ya choose fewer AI cars. For me it worked with 3 AI cars.....

    Hmm Thats a new one for me. Haven't seen that, and I believe I have been playing with around 20 AI's.

    Will check on this when I have some time.
  6. I'd like to give this race a try. I usually can't join a race at this time, but next week I'm free, so sign me up!
  7. The server won't let me d/l the mod. I have the Maserati car and sounds installed and I can join other Maserati servers (Maserati- All Tracks). Is the RD Maserati mod called GT-MAS?
  8. Same here
  9. Same for me. It does not work to dl from the server.

    Hmm Strange. Will upload the mod to mediafire so you can install it via the normal way.
    And yes, I believe it's called GT-MAS indeed. Have to check at home tonight, as I am at work now.

    Mod is uploaded, and posted in first post.

  12. Worked from server just now. But Gt vs Megane Palm Beach wont work.

    You mean I uploaded the wrong version?
  14. Car and sound is installed (and they show installed in the MOD manager), but I don't see the car in the All Tracks and Cars single player mode. I'm a newb! Am I doing something wrong?

    NEVERMIND!! Got it!

    Come on guys!! Sign up for this one! It should be fun to drive these cars. :)
  16. I got the mod from the Mid-O server and it worked. When are you putting up the PBI server so we can verify it works and do some testing?

    Well, it was fun to drive these cars. It was pretty tough to get into the handling of them though...
    I was able to snatch "pole" as we jumped from practise directly to the race.
    I had a good get away and maintained position. In the begining I was pulling away. Then I started to get some break problems and span a couple of times which costed my leading position.
    Marco and Guy had to pit for fuel, so I could get back into the lead and Guy was closing the gap as I was driving carefully not to spin. I was getting into a flow and was extending my lead with a couple of tenth of a second. Than dissaster happened. coming onto the straight and span. In my mirror it seemed that Guy passed at my rear, so I continued my spin to get my car back into the right position.. What a big mistake that was... :( I took off his front wheel and distroyed his race. :( Sorry mate for being such an idiot as I know to be standing still till it's save to continue. Like I did when I span and let you and Marco pass before continueing...
    I didn't wanted to win the race like that and went back to the pit and escaped.
    I sure did had fun on TS and the cars were pretty fun too. :D

    Thanx for the nice evening and sorry again! Hope to see you guys next time again! :)

    Indeed unbelieveable cars. Totally undriveable without a decent setup, but when you have a nice setup, and get the hang of the car, they become great toys! Really had some fun!

    Next up, testing the competitiveness for these cars compared to the 370Z's. I think the combo can be a lot of fun!

    I will also test what the performance difference is between the Nissan's and Maserati's. Hopefully they are close in performance, so a combo between the two can be made. :)

    Did a test with:
    Nissan's GTR and 370z, Maserati, Meganes and Lambo Sesto GT1 (Beta v0.4) and I think we could have a match between the Nissan GTR (GT1) and the Lambo. They are within a second, the other classes are 2-3 seconds off eachother's pace where the Nissan 370z is the slowest of the pack. The Nissan GTR and Lambo fastest, second the Meganes and third the Maseratis... The AI I used was at 110%

    I drove with the Lambo a couple of laps and it's very prommising, but still need some work.
