SUPER TOURING RELOADED AND PRE SUPER TOURING
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is a graphical update of my first ever mod 'AL Super Touring' for the Race07 series.
I had to build and learn everything from scratch to make the mod. It was 'learning by doing',
and it resulted in a little bit messy mod, so I've tidied it up.

You need the STCC addons from Simbin to get the sound of some of the cars.
If you don't have STCC installed, you can just replace the .aud files with a file from a car you have.

This is NOT a TOCA2 conversion, everything in the mod is made from scratch.
Please don't change anything in this mod without my permission.

Before installing this update, please delete the old version including talent files.

Some tips for changes in the .plr file that can improve your Race07 + this mod:
(the .plr file is usually located in C:\Users\*USERNAME*\Documents\SimBin\RACE 07\UserData\*PROFILENAME*)

Steer Ratio Speed="0.00000" // Speed at which low speed steering lock override ends. Default: 25.00000
Compressed Textures="0" // Can give better framerate than "1"
AI Power Calibration="0" // Adjustments with AI strength (0=none, or add the following: 1=power, 2=gearing, 4=fuel)
AI to AI Collision Rate="40" // Detection rate per second (1-40) for AI-to-AI collisions
Player Car Equal="0" // Might have something to do with ai catch-up

What's new:

V. 2.4
* New updated materials and cubemaps for better looks and more visual 'depth'
* Updated normals for smoother surfaces
* Some exterior reshaping
* Repositioned windscreen wipers slightly
* A few updates to the interiors, but more could be done in the next update
* Replaced the facelifted Nissan Primera with a better model (based on the ETCC 2002 updated version)
* Fixed a few minor errors.
* Tweaked ai throttle controll and aggression. The result is more passes but also some accidents...
* Some physics tweaks and 'softer' standard setups

V. 2.11
* Just a few minor corrections (Volvo s40 '99 car name and 2 car icons)

V. 2.10
* Tweaked almost everything slightly for faster and better ai-behaviour.
Talent: Better traction controll, faster in rain
Tyres: Minor tweaks, rain tyres lasts longer
Physics: Less AITorqueStab., higher ai damper and suspension calculations, and a lot of minor setup and damage tweaks.
* New working pitstop tape (works in race, but is not updated in replay), and new windows material and color.
* Updated car names.
* Changed car ID's to better avoid conflicts, but there will probably be some conflicts anyway.
* Some resculpting and smoothing of the shapes of the cars, a few new parts and some materials updates.
* More consistent letter sizes on windows.
* Added Super Touring Reloaded '95, Super Touring Reloaded '00, and two more privateers in '96.
* Updated some of the lower detail dashes.
* Removed the simulator. There will be a new different one as an add-on.
* Also removed the track updates. These will be a separate file aswell.
* Removed some unnecessary cars in the 'seasons' classes for the same reason.

V. 2.05
* This is an update to the ai behavour with new .aiw files for some tracks and a better ai understanding of how much grip is available.
This results in less ai spins and swerving when knocked of track.
* Higher ai damper calculation
* Some minor fixes

V. 2.0
* Renamed some folders to fix some loading issues, so please delete the old folders belonging to this mod in '..\race 07\Gamedata\Teams'
before installing this update.
* Updated tyre pressure and tweaked tyre files.
Removed as many 'cheats' in the tyre files as possible and compensated it with car setup
All tyres (front, back, fwd, rwd, 4wd) now uses the same grip, curves, slip angle
Removed AI front grip bias, so braking grip is more fair AI vs. player
* Tweaked ai throttle controll
* The AI cars now look further ahead at low speeds, which reduces swerving when trying to get back on racing line
* Removed different spring rate for AI
* Tweaked Oulton Park .aiw files for new car physics
* Tweaked downforce balance more to the front for FWD cars
* New/updated suspension geometry for most of the cars to represent the different styles.
Also recalculated and adjusted roll centers for better handling
But there are limits to what can be done (the game seams to be made for double wishbone suspension).
* New standard setups to fit the new tyres and physics
* Tweaked talent files for more randomness in the game results.
* Added Ford Mondeo Mk1 liftback
* Added Ford Sierra Sapphire by request. This is a conversion of a model made by Jalonso, sent by TOTO090369.
I have edited, resculpted and optimized the model a little to better fit Race 07.
The car has just one simplified livery.
* Added some new car parts
* Edited materials for smoother specular light
* A lot of minor texture fixes
* Added Super Touring Reloaded '96
+ A lot more...

V. 1.9
* A lot of minor bug fixes and polishing
* Tweaked physics for all cars, including new suspension geometry.
The suspensions are now more like the real ST cars, and also prevent the strange turning slightly to the left when accelerating problem.
Also updated simplified ai dampers and increased ai calculation so the ai cars don't flip over that easily.
* Some balance of performance for the cars has been made, but can still be improved
* Reworked tyres and textures for rain tyres
* Some setup files for ai cars have been added
* Updated aiw (ai cars driving file) for some of the btcc tracks available. Please make a copy of your original .aiw files for the tracks first.
They are in the 'Track updates' directory, and should be placed in the tracks (Locations) folders manualy.
The files includes new racing lines that suits the cars slightly better and new pit and garage positions to prevent the cars from hitting walls
when exiting garage. Also tried to keep the ai cars out of some problem areas at Oulton park to decrease 'stupid ai swerving'.
* Tweaked talents files to have faster ai cars and more variation in race results
* Added updated and resculpted Chrysler Stratus, originaly made by Ruben Denoso
* Finally added Super Touring Reloaded '97. The skins for most of the cars are originaly made by Alexander Hederby and some privateer skins are made by Simon Gardner.
I have made a few skins and edited the others to fit updated cars and templates. Some new parts and versions of the cars has been made to fit the '97 season.
A new helmet visor has also been added.
* Also added Super Touring Reloaded '99, made by me.

Because of the new structure and some other changes, addons made by others will not work with this update to begin with.
Sorry for that.

Latest reviews

Volvo 850 does not work for me, can anyone help? The game crashes and closes when trying to use this model.
Just excellent, a mod made just right.
Great mod! very fun to play. Pre Season Touring is not working, game crash.

I guess you haven't STCC2 addon installed? It is needed for the 850 Estate. Otherwise you can delete the "Volvo Teams" folder in "..race 07\Gamedata\Teams\Pre Super Touring\"
Incredible detail and effort has gone into this mod, from the cars, to the ai and everything in between! This mod has been one of the main reasons I purchased Race 07, and I'm incredibly grateful that I did! The races I've had so far have been so much fun, and I can't thank all of the development team enough for their hard work! :)

AndreasFSC
Thanks, happy to hear that :)
Tengo problema con varios autos que no tienen sonido, a alguien mas le paso?
AndreasFSC
AndreasFSC
You should read the ReadMe file. It explains everything. I have also made a sound addon for those who don't have Stcc and stcc2 addons.
Stunning payware quality mod. Thank you.
Awesome update as always Andreas, been following it from the start, can really see how it has come on to be on par/ if not better than something from an official studio. Keep up the good work.

Just wondering, do you plan on adding the earlier 92 and 93 seasons to this mod?
Hi Andreas, when I unzip into my 07folder it corrupts the game? Do I have to put Data into the data folder and the UIData into the UIData folder? This is only the third MOD I have tried to install! It's a steep learning curve for a 56 year old :-)

It should work by just unzip in the main folder. Does the game crash at startup?
If you go to ....\race 07\Gamedata\Teams , are there any folders called "ST Reloaded", "ST Reloaded 95" ... ?
Outstanding.
i got a little issue with the cars sounds. only got the bmw ones
Easily the best reason to keep Race07 installed on your machine.
Fantastic selection of great looking and even better sounding cars that are great fun to race with.
Please give me video how to instal this MODs

It is very easy, just unzip into your main Race07 folder. The player file changes are optional.
Incredible mod, such awesome racing
Thought i'd come back to Race07, after moving to newer sims and saw this new update, Great update, though still sad i can't mix all the years in one race, due to conflicts. Great mod though keep up the great work.
I love this mod! It makes me feel younger. Thank you very much!
Stunning work.
Very nice work. No issues at all. Really brings back my old game. Thanks
Best update yet Andreas. Great work as always
Vielen Dank! Großartige Arbeit. :-)
Very good
Excellent work
Toca is back
Absolutely bloody brilliant. Arguably my all time favourite mod. Thank you so much !
Fantastic mod, hours of fun
Looks good, but FAR to complicated to install.
You mean literally unzip game date to gamedata folder? I dont think so. I think I need to make sure each file goes in the correct folder. Can some kind chap make a tutorial video for people like me ?
