Re-released: SimBin WTCC Vauxhall Vectra 2007 Online Custom Skin Enabled

Discussion in 'RACE 07 Mods' started by Günthar Rowe, Jul 20, 2010.

  1. Downloads: A new file has been added by True2Life Racing:

    True2Life Racing Vauxhall Vectra Custom Skinable

    Version 1.2.1.3

    Extract to your Online Race07 install

    ...\Steam\SteamApps\**your profile name**\race 07

    If you have any custom skins, you will need to check the .ini file for each skin and make sure that the model is [Vauxhall Vectra 2007]

    e.g.

    This is how the david040799's Martini Vectra.ini from NoGrip should look:

    [[[Martini Team]]]

    windows=Martini Vectra # 9 Window.dds
    Ext_Driver=Martini Vectra # 9 Driver.dds
    Helmet=Martini Vectra # 9 HELMET.dds
    MenuFlag=Italie flag.tga

  2. Excellent. I don't have the Vectra's installed since the update, so it will be gr8 to have them back.

    Thanks again Gunthar:).
     
  3. Re-released:

    see blow for updated release
     
  4. gunthar some noticed the rear brake lights where not working during the USA touring cars on friday?
     
  5. Might not be related to this mod in particular. I'm pretty sure they weren't working when I played BTCC 09 yesterday either.
     
  6. can someone test this before I get home later and post. I'll check it as this is a new issue I was unaware of... so never check to lights...
     
  7. I have this running in Race On w/STCC and I noticed the driver had no head, on further inspection I found the drivers head underneath the car half in/out of the track.

    Anyone else have this problem?
     
  8. i have working brake lights but the drivers head is missing also
     
  9. v1.2.1.2 patch 1 released

    corrected shadows on brake and tail lights so should show better. re-exported the gmt's and hope this fixes the issue some have of missing head. I tested with Race07+RaceOn add-on only loaded and showed drivers/body/arms head correctly.

    WTCC Vauxhall Vectra 2007 Custom Skin Enabled v1.2.1.2 patch 1
     
  10. Very nice Gunthar, also how matched is it to the current tourers? We ran cadwell with it and tbh all looked good. Some drivers tested it and know one was super quick or super slow but I just wondered from your side what are its advantages and disadvantages?

    Vectra is slower down the straight (I think its max speed is 135ish) than most WTCC cars but good in the corners.
     
  12. Gunthar updated the car to v1.2.1.2 just after our event, Adam. It should now be completely matched to the current physics of the WTCC cars. :)
     
  13. it should now be very similar to the Chev in most aspects with just slight differences. If you have some good Chev setups, load them and make some small tweaks to get that sweet spot...

    Gunthar, I still have the issue of the headless driver in the cockpit, but showing his head / helmet dragging under the car (most disconcerting :eek: ).
    I also have no driver arms in cockpit view.

    I seem to recall this being a problem with the original Crowne Plaza mod, but can't remember if it was ever fixed.
     
  15. @ Warren, what race versions do you have? as in... I have Race 07 and then added GTR Evo addon then STCC addon then RaceOn addon... I can't seem to see how I see the driver correctly and I have everything avail installed. But I tried with just R07 and fine... We did have an issue way back, and it was sorted back in like the middle of 2008... The game must be picking up another set of 3D models. Do you want to try a little test?

    Open the .cas file in the Vectra folder in notepad and edit the following lines:

    This will possible stop the wipers working, but will tell me if this is the source of the issue

    Gunthar, I was running Race On but I have all versions, same as you. I'll try the test and let you know.

    EDIT: I tried the modded .cas file, no luck, still the same.
    Also tried launching from Race 07 (instead of Race On), but still the same.

    Very strange.
     
  17. Well, I installed Race 07 on my 5th very very old laptop and had the missing bits and head under the car issue, yes!!!! Now I can fix it when I have in front of me a working "broken" install :)

    Vauxhall Vectra 2007 v1.2.1.2 patch 2 released
     
  18. Funny, I came to the thread to say I still had headless jeff driving the car. But today out of curiosity I re-installed the Crowne Plaza add on and it worked. Head where it should be.

    It matters nought now you've released the patch though. :)
