FVRV8 2009 Aussie V8 Racing Series Released for GTR Evo
« on: April 19, 2009, 04:05:02 am »
Welcome to the FVR V8 2009 Aussie Racing Series v1.5 by the FVRFactor.com mod team!!

This is a conversion of the all new 2009 rFactor FVR V8 mod and uses the same car models as from this mod. It includes the Ford Falcon BF 2009, Ford Falcon FG 2009 and the Holden Commodore VE 2009.

Features added to the GTR Evo release:
- Custom Skin support using the "CustomSkins" folder .ini system
- Animated wipers
- Wet tyres and independent front and rear tyre physics models
- Functioning Rain/Dirtscreen

Known issues:
- Wipers are limited in that they only semi-clear rain water drops on the right hand side of the rainscreen. This is an issue within Simbins code that all (yes, even the RHD Lister) only clear the left hand side fully. Seems to work ok at clearing the dirt build-up.
- Non-adjustable Final Rear Diff Ratio. The Aussie V8 Series use fixed gearbox ratios with 4 final diff ratios to choose from. GTR Evo doesn't support this being adjustable, so we have included 4 default setups for both the Commodore and Falcon which are included in there own 7-zip file to go in your CarSetups folder located in your "My Documents".
- If you select Heavy Rain, the AI won't get the correct tyres, this is due to Simbin not working corectly with more than 2 tyre compounds.

Installation:
- extract to main Race07 folder

e.g.

C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\**you-user-name**\race 07\

This Mod wouldn't have been possible without:

FYI, it's stand-a-lone and does not require the v1.4 2008 mod...

Will test as soon as possible..

Where do we have leagues in EURO time zones for this??? :)

There simply is to much going on in the different games.
But I sure would love to have som mod league racing for GTR E.
And this is one of the good ones. Well, the former one was. Not tested this yet.
