Final GTL carpack.. done!
« on: September 24, 2007, 05:59:14 am »
Im happy to tell ya its finally finished.. Ill be uploading it to downloads but it will take some time to test for possible errors. For anyone who wants to download it in advance:


Please reinstall GTL.
Make sure you backup anything you might need from your old GTL install.
Remember that there is a possibility if we find bugs that you have to download it all again.

After its officially good to go we make a post about it.. It might be good idea for anyone downloading this
to reinstall GTL, just to be on the safe side.. Hopefully there wont be any problems with it and we can all
enjoy the great cars trouble free.. This is also a bit sad, this is the very final GTL carpack, all the addon
cars that will be used in SJ from now on.. no new ones coming.. hopefully this will have enough variety to
keep the grids colourfull and interesting no matter what combo we run.
Ill post here when i have it uploaded.. it will take a while the pack is large.

:)

I can't thank you guys enough for all your hard work over the past 18 months.  You've turned this thing into a science and we've had nothing but great experiences with these packs.  I can't wait to test the final release out! 

I'm excited to see future releases for other sims as well.  :gtg:

Jarkko, I'm really looking forward to this pack. Since I don't have any of the previous packs in my GTL, would you still recommend that I re-install everything?

Its there in the downloads. :)

Nah if you dont have any addons its ok just to put the pack in..
Its highly recommended if you have some previous SJ packs or some other standalones installed.

OK i might be a silly  :gareth: for asking this, but here goes anyway. Do i just install this and let it overwrite or, do i have to remove all the add on cars first, i think i heard whispers about some of the current ad ons being slightly changed(but i might just be making that up  :dunno: ) and i seem to remember seeing a list of defaults some where

THANKS TO ALL CREATORS AND INSTALL WHIZZARDS!!!!!!!

Is there anyone who makes a fresh install and who can give a definite list of all default cars.
I'd like to double check my folder for non default cars

I did it like this;

- backup my teams folder.
- check ingame garage which are default (not foulproof!)
- delete addon cars/skins.
- install SJ carpack (smoooooth!) .
- buy cars I didn't have before.
- I can drop other addon cars back in there later.

I'm VERY happy with my new Ferrari and will drive it proudly at Road Atlanta! Thanks Stick!!!!  :excited:
yes yes, I'll put shadows back on.

In fact LOT of cars were changed and updated.. the amount of cars changed and added is large.. I dont want ppl not to reinstall, run into trouble and then start accusing the carpack.. With backing up the whole process takes 10 minutes, not too much compared to the propably (way) more than 100 hours we put together into this carpack.

Fantastick cars. fresh install and backup of my gamedata folder is done. only did copy back my locations folder so i have all the tracks i used to(that is a good idea by the way)

And with my richard bruns rally practice lately i can make the cars spin a lot nicer.
The still spin, but now in a manerly fashion.

kudos to ya m8eys... lots and lots....

i shall be sorting the servers out in the morning so the new car pack is installed on only 1 of the servers so everybody can make sure there are no problems

Saturdays FUN RUN is default car only races so shouldn't cause any problems for people not updated

BUT I'm planning on the new car pack being used for the first GTL season League race on the 6th of October {silly me and mixed up dates} so would appreciate everybody sorting things out by then this will also give us plenty time to work out any kinks

the reason for only doing 1 server is simple IF there are any problems come first race we can quickly swap servers which will only have the original SJ cars on it also Kristof will have the choice on the 5th for the SJC race

 i will name the servers accordingly NEW and OLD so people know what to expect when joining the server

it may be worth backing up your current teams folder so you can quickly revert if there are problems
