I made this simple mod to create a more immersive and realistic feel to these invitational classic car events. (also works in any other instance where classic cars are involved)
Modding on this game is limited and this is ONLY an edited text-file, so i did not influence in which cars/events these drivers appear! National flags are still correct though.
Please Note 2:
These are my personal picks, English version only. Feel free to add sugesstions but i might not care at all.
Installation-Instructions (Drag & Drop: !BACKUP!):
Replace the "language_en.Ing" in your F1 2017/localisation folder with the one file provided. Make a backup of the old one first because if you want to revert back you have to repair download the game via Steam!
Tried to make it somewhat realistic, see for yourself:
!!!PLEASE REPORT ANY ERRORS!!!
Lucas Roth -> Lucas Auer
Austrian DTM-Driver, was at the Young-Drivers Test @ Hungary. Mabye a future F1-Driver. Liked to put him in there since Lauda is a bit too old imo.
Jay Letourneau -> Jaques Villeneuve
I tried to find a good driver but theres only Villeneuve, sorry.
EDIT: -> Nice to see people getting triggered by that line. Chill-Out pals & gals, just a joke. B-b-but ... IT will still stay here. If you have a problem with that check out the U L T R A serious line below Jan Magnussen a few lines down from here.
Gert Waldmuller -> Ralf Schumacher
Nice to see the name Schumacher back i guess. Could not pick Michael due to obvious health-reasons. #KeepFighting
Julian Quesada -> Fernando Alonso
Why the hell would anyone not want F. Alonso in these events? Legend
Marie Laursen -> Jan Magnussen
S.. my Balls mate 1.0
Arron Barnes -> David Coulthard
Must have on any classic car race
Martin Giles -> Martin Brundle
Yeah i know hes pretty old right now but well he is very present on F1 so i figuered, pick him. Might replace him with Jenson Button though!
Callisto Calabresi -> Jarno Trulli
This is TRU LI amazing, isnt it?
Jonas Schiffer -> Gerhard Berger
Not many alternatives from Austria these days. (i am from austria but well im no F1 Driver, sorry)
Peter Belousov -> Vitaly Petrov
V. Putin would also have been funny but i chose Alonsos favorite Renault driver (Anyone remembers?)
Wilhelm Kaufmann -> Heinz-Harald Frentzen
Good driver, deserved to be on my list.
Naota Izumi -> Takuma Sato
Sato-San is also here, yeah.
Alex Murray -> Paul Di Resta
Why not? He could stick with the reporting stuff if he does not know how to get out of the way if a car approaches from behind
Yasar Atiyeh -> Hamad Al Fardam
Did not even know this guy before researching.
Howard Clarke -> Scott Speed
Kinda a meh driver but what can you do.
Noah Visser -> Jos Verstappen
The Boss is back.
Flavio Nieves -> Pedro de la Rosa
Esto Saari -> Mika Häkkinen
My fav. F1 driver of all time. Legend.
Santiago Moreno -> J.P. Montoya
Like a horse with horns? No its JP-Montoya. Oh deeeer.
Benjamin Coppens -> Jérôme d'Ambrosio
Yeah, try find someone else.
Sophie Levasseur -> Olivier Panis
Panis is back! Yay!
Igor Correia -> Rubens Barrichello
Had to be him.
Alain Forest -> Alain Prost
Iconic but maybe not suitable in 2017 to race a F1 car.
Klimek Michalski -> Robert Kubica
Renaults 2018 driver.
