Patcha submitted a new resource:

Lotus 49: Monomarca USA 1967 skins pack - It's a skin pack based on 1967 United States Grand Prix cars' liveries

Hi all!
I wanna introduce to you a skins pack I'm worked on!
It's based on 1967 United States Grand Prix cars' liveries to apply over Lotus49 Kunos'model.
I called it: "LOTUS 49: MONOMARCA USA 1697 PACK" (v.1.0) [Update: February 03, 2014]

The main purpose is to have a greater skins choice, other than the official Lotus green and yellow.
But it's also about AI and multiplayer purpose! :)

Just a note about suits: most of the drivers in 1967 (I suspect pratically them all) wear just a white suit.
Seeing that mechanics unluckily share suit's skin with drivers, I couldn't personalize their skin.
For now, I prefered to give precedence to driver's suits (pratically white), because you rarely see mechanics.
But let me know if you would prefer differently!

Quote from video informations. :)
Finally I can test and record a race Full Grid with new CPU and GPU!
Is it smooth? Well, not! Hard to overcome first curve (Curva Grande) after start for two motivations:
1. Even strongest CPU goes overload and flickers the game
2. AI opponent don't care of you and you'll be beat here and there while you're trying to manage flickering
How did I succeed? Just patience. :)

On the other side, my new computer configuration seems great to record replay! No flickering at all!
Well, if you'll see strange loss of definitions on youtube you know it's due to video compression...
But replay (even while recording) looks great and totally smooth on my PC!

Note: I put Full Grid + 1 by mistake (18 instead 17), so you can see Bruce McLaren twice. :D

New preview video with Early Access 0.8.2 AI!
Finally a full grid race becames playable (at least on hi-level configurations).
But there is a but: you must get free from new (approximate) Kunos skins to full enjoy mine!
To do that, I put new notes in the starting post, and I report them below.



NOTE: NEW SKINS FORM KINOS 0.8
With new AI (finally!) there comes also new Kunos skins.
The idea looks slightly inspired to mine (look to believe!), but doesn't look equally successful, by my personal opinion!
I admit Kunos adopted colors could be more faithful to originals, but that's all: they just colored the chassis.
My pack proposes also skins for logos, rims, windshield, steering wheel, helmets and suits.
(Besides, for what I know, McLaren adopted typical orange only starting from 1968!)

If, like me, you wanna get free from theirs skins to be able to play using only my pack's, I suggest you to create a new folder "unskins" at the same level of "skins" folder and move all folders named with race number and year, instead than driver's name!
(Look the preview video below, too.)

Patcha updated Lotus 49: Monomarca USA 1967 skins pack with a new update entry:

New suits, AC 1.0.2 compatible

After almost a whole year (3 days missing) here I am again on this skin pack!
So here you get the brand new 1.1 version!

The fact it's easy: I just found Kunos put a different skin file for drivers, so I had to revamp suits.
So what you'll find more?
Old drivers' suit reproposed on the new template at the best possible, but expecially new crew suits.
I profitted to give lollipop men a bit of "team feeling" by coloring their suits with the color of the car (with more or less exceptions)....

As one of the original GPL beta team (and the author of "Four-Wheel Drift," the strategy guide that shipped with the game), I salute you! Great job; tremendous work!

Patcha updated Lotus 49: Monomarca USA 1967 skins pack with a new update entry:

AC 1.5 patch new Driver's model suits and gloves

Seems to be a yearly appointment the need from Kunos to redo all suits and gloves for drivers! :D
And here we are again: new update to fit new Assetto Corsa patch 1.5 drivers model textures!
I also profitted to correct custom tyres reflexes and normal mapping (Goodyear and Dunlop) to look identical to 1.5 (Firestone) Kunos original.

So I introduce to you the 1.2 skin pack version (the link it's still the same, in the first post of this thread).
The differences from 1.0 skin pack version was...
