McLaren F1 Mod v2.0

McLaren F1 Mod for GTR2

Hi everyone and a big greeting from MadigitalMedia

The MadigitalMedia Mclaren F1 Pack is a conversion from GTR.
It is a culmination of a number of peoples work and we hope you enjoy it.

The pack consists of a total of 89 vehicles using two different engines and is divided as follows :

Mclaren F1 Challenge = 26 cars – Mod originally produced for GTR by [SSR]Hoskins and his team.
Circuit Zolder Cup = 20 cars – Collection of skins originally produced for GTR by Circuit Zolder and his team.
Circuit Zolder Dance Cup = 22 cars – Collection of skins originally produced for GTR by Circuit Zolder and his team.
Mclaren F1 Lemans = 21 cars using the LM engine with skins based on the 2007 Lemans cars, designed for this mod by MadigitalMedia.

Each collection of cars has its own Custom Cup and every single car has a custom Driver (helmet and face). In the case of the Lemans collection they are of the actual drivers of their LM counterparts.

Known Bugs:

– None

Installation:

Extract the folder into your main GTR2 folder.

Car Infos from Wiki :

To follow up on the success of the F1 GTR into 1996, McLaren further developed the 1995 model, leading to a size increase but weight decrease. Nine more F1 GTRs were built to 1996 spec, while some 1995 cars were still campaigned by privateers. F1 GTR 1996 chassis #14R is notable as being the first non-Japanese car to win a race in the All-Japan Grand Touring Car Championship (JGTC). The car was driven by David Brabham and John Nielsen. The weight was reduced with around 37 kg (82 lb) from the 1995 GTR but the engine was kept detuned at 600 hp (608 PS; 447 kW) to comply with racing regulations.

The McLaren F1 LM (LM for Le Mans) is a series of five special cars which were built in honour of the five McLaren F1 GTRs which finished the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans, including the winning car.

The weight was reduced by approximately 76 kg (167.6 lb) to a total of 1,062 kg (2,341 lb) – achieved by having no interior noise suppression, no audio system, a stripped-down base interior, no fan-assisted ground effect and no dynamic rear wing. The car also had a different transaxle, various aerodynamic modifications, specially designed 18-inch (457 mm) magnesium alloy wheels and upgraded gearbox. The F1 LM used the same engine as the 1995 F1 GTR, but without race-mandated restrictors, to produce 680 hp (507 kW; 689 PS). It had a top speed of 225 mph (362 km/h), which is less than the standard version because of added aerodynamic drag, despite identical gear ratios. In the place of the small dynamic rear wing there is a considerably larger, fixed CFRP rear wing mounted on the back of the vehicle.

The LM has the following specifications:

  • Peak torque of 705 N⋅m (520 lbf⋅ft) at 4,500 rpm
  • Peak power of 680 PS (500 kW; 670 hp) at 7,800 rpm
  • A redline at 8,500 rpm
  • Total weight of 1,062 kg (2,341 lb) which gives the car a 110.16 bhp (82 kW; 112 PS) per litre ratio.[69]

While McLaren has never claimed specific acceleration figures for the LM, Motortrend recorded traction-limited times of 0–60 mph in 3.9s and 0–100 mph in 6.7s. The LM was once the holder of the 0–100–0 mph record, which it completed in 11.5 seconds when driven by Andy Wallace at the disused airbase RAF Alconbury in Cambridgeshire.

The F1 LMs can be identified by their Papaya Orange paint. They were painted in this colour in memory of, and tribute to, Bruce McLaren, whose race colour was Papaya Orange. Two of the chassis were painted in Black with Grey trim similar to the Ueno Clinic sponsored Le Mans 24 Hours winning car. These cars were bought by the Sultan of Brunei as such, also feature horizontal stripes down the sides in yellow, red and blue.

Although only five F1 LMs were sold, a sixth chassis exists in the form of XP1 LM, the prototype for modifications to the existing F1 to form the new F1 LM. This car is also painted Papaya Orange and is retained by McLaren.

Mod History – updates :

update 1 :

All textures now have 5 mipmap levels, BODY1 and BODY2 textures are in DX1 format with the windows in DX5 format.

You can now have custom windows with any car, just name the file
<CarNumber>_MCLARENF1_WINDOWS.DDS, for example 96020CZ_MCLARENF1_WINDOWS.DDS.

If you don’t use a custom window texture the car will use the default window texture.

All cars have both high and normal resolution skins.

Regards,

Greybrad

update 2 :

* Fixed a problem with the alpha channels of the custom windows.
* Adjusted the positioning of the Rainscreen and Dirtscreen.
* Adjusted the rainscreen so that the windscreen doesn’t look like a block of small raindrops.
* Located and corrected the line in the .eng file that put the sound offcentre when in cockpit view.

Regards,

Greybrad

Additional Work

* Motec remapped by Rictus Grin
* Motec graphics redone bt [MMT Aaron] in order for them to show correctly due to a fault with the original simbin F550 Motec

On a personal note I would just like to say a big Thanks to GreyBrad and Rictus for their help and support in sorting out the errors with the Mclaren. Without their assistance this update wouldn’t have been possible. Their unselfish and willing attitudes are a credit to themselves and an example to the community.

Cheers guys!

Aaron

Credits :

As always, alot of work goes into bringing you a new mod and so we’d like to thank the following people:

* Juri B. aka Youri – Project Manager of AdrenalinStorm SARL, formerly ORSPG “Online Race Sim Projects Group” for developing the original Mclaren F1 for F1C (original Readme included in this pack)

* Vince Kortho

* The Heathen

* BorekS for his assistance to get the lights working properly

* Rictus Grin – emap conversion and a great job sorting out the normals. His willing help and assistance have proved invaluble and went a long way to making this mod great looking instead of just good looking.

* Arnold Wong – A big thanks to this guy for sorting out the headlights and also providing the physics for the car, based on his Longtail in the forthcoming WSGT mod.

Not forgetting [SSR]Hoskins for bringing this mod to the GTR community in the first place and all the people associated with that. If I have missed anyone out, my deepest apologies, but I have a get out clause: Blame Vince who provided me with the list of people who worked on this before we got it.
