Hi. As many of you may remember, last year I released an F1 2014 mod. So in the same vein for this year's F1 2014 game, I've updated pretty much everything I can think of to 2015 season. I know there's already an excellent 2015 mod out there, so this is an alternate mod. It's been made in quite a different manor. I really made this for myself so take it or leave it.
I've updated the following:
Manor and Caterham included (incl Manor car/team/garage/pitstand etc)
Removed Crofty's "Welcome to 2014" voiceover
Driver stats (no of poles/wins)
Driver helmets (where a driver is new/relocated)
Driver faces (where a driver is new/relocated)
Driver rival images
Driver voices (not tested)
Team order (2015 garages and pitstands require parts 2 and 3 of this mod)
Cars: I've done crude car liveries for the driver name and car number. And I have also modified McLaren and Lotus skins for new engines.
Helmets: Where a driver's moved teams he's got his old helmet. I've updated them a bit and got rid of obvious things like Vettel's redbull logos and Alonso's Ferrari logos. New drivers get their predecessors' helmet, but with driver numbers removed. My helmet painting skills aint great.

It is important to note that this mod does NOT alter any performances etc. Game will perform as bog standard. Essentially it is just a graphical/stats/language update to feel like 2015 season. Obviously all cars are 2014 cars, with just some minor tweaks to graphics. So the 2nd redbull will perform as it did before, just it'll appear to be Daniil Kvyat driving it. etc.
Caterham and Manor teams are driven by anonymous drivers. They are:
TBA (To Be Announced)
TBC (To Be Confirmed)
TBD (To Be Determined)
TBR (To Be Resolved)
Their car numbers are ? and ?? for first and second car respectively. If and when we officially know what teams are competing and who their drivers are, I'll do an update - removing teams if required.
I thinks that's it. Some screenies:
Portions highlighted in yellow require parts 2 and 3 of the mod:
Garages and team uniforms:
The above is part 1 of the mod. Parts 2 and 3 are optional, but recommended. Part 2 puts all of the pitstands in correct 2015 order so you don't get the wrong pitstand/mechanics outside your garage.
Some screenies of part 2:
You will not get the McLaren or Manor pitstand graphics unless you install part 3 of the mod. This part updates them and any obvious trackside signs that had "2014" written on it. These have been replaced with "2015". This includes the giant TV screens when in pause mode.
You can just install part 1 but part 2 is required for correct pitstand order. Part 3 is optional but recommended for best results.
Mod is English only. Please don't ask for any other languages as I have no intention of doing this. Essentially, this is a personal mod released for others to enjoy. Take it or leave it warts and all.
You will not be able to play online with this mod, and will likely have to restart your career.

I hope you enjoy.
