F_Retro 1975 Skins 1.01

Set of 1975 Retro skins and driver helmets, with talent files

  1. Keith Windsor

    Formula Retro 1975 car skins and talent files, including 25 drivers and Teams names for Automobilista


    Ver 1.01 KMW 2016 AMS

    Changelog v1.01AMS:
    Updated talent files to include new Reiza tyre management and start skills.
    Updated series files for compatibility with Season tool and new AI blue flag behaviour.
    Added new series icon.


    I originally painted these 1975 skins for Game Stock Car Extreme a few years ago, using the orignal Retro car skins from Reiza.

    Driver & helmet textures are original Reiza files with some minor exceptions.

    1) this 1975 F1 car set appears in the main game Menu as a separate set of cars, and it will not replace or overwrite the original cars. It will not overwrite any original files.

    2) Thanks to Jyri Kettunen who adjusted my original talent files to improve their accuracy against the real 1975 season.

    3) srs file included which adds this car set to the main game Menu and creates a season that can be edited if you wish. You can choose to play the default cars, or this 1975 set instead.


    PLEASE REMOVE any previous versions of this mod.

    I highly recommend you use a mod manager utility such as Jonesoft Generic Mod Enabler, which will insert this skin set for you, and remove it whenever you want.

    For manual installation:

    Copy contents of series, Vehicles\F_Retro and Talent\F_Retro75 into the corresponding Reiza folders.

    As always, credit and thanks go to Reiza for their templates & files that have been painted or edited to create this set.

    Full list of drivers and car skins included:

    Carlos Pace
    Carlos Reutemann

    Tony Brise
    Alan Jones

    Niki Lauda
    Clay Regazzoni

    James Hunt

    Jacky Ickx
    Ronnie Peterson

    Vittorio Brambilla
    Lella Lombardi
    Hans Stuck

    Emerson Fittipaldi
    Jochen Mass

    Mario Andretti

    Mark Donohue

    JeanPaul Jarier
    Tom Pryce

    Bob Evans

    Dave Morgan
    John Watson

    Patrick Depailler
    Jody Scheckter

    Jacques Laffite
    Arturo Merzario

    These skins were not intended to be 100% accurate, I just wanted to create a set of skins that I could use for my own custom '75 season. But all names, teams and numbers are accurate, and all skins are a reasonable representation of the '75 version.

    The talent files also reflect the performance of the 1975 grid, and have been edited further by Jyri Kettunen to improve the accuracy.

    No physics files have been changed in any way, so this car set will behave exactly as the original, and is suitable for multiplayer online use, if all players use the same set.

    Previous version changes (from SCE):


    Ver 2.1 by KMW Nov 2013

    1) Removed the Copersucar version of Vel's Parnelli Jones Racing #27 car, and added a new verison instead, using the default car shape.

    2) Minor amendments / corrections to some team names


    Ver 2.0 by KMW Nov 2013

    1) added Vel's Parnelli Jones Racing #27 car.
    This car uses the Copersucar shape and physics, and has been added into the Copersucar\1976 folder, alongside the default Copersucar.

    2)added Mario Andretti to the Talent files.

    Really cool new twist to the Retro cars..

    Never really understood why nobody drove these cars on SCE. Hopefully that will change.
