Well, here it is folks. The culmination of a promise I made nearly 2 years ago to create the original Can-Am series as best as possible for my beloved GTR2 mod and community and friends.

It consists of the seasons spanning 1966 through to and including 1973. I stopped there due to 1974 being cancelled halfway through in large part due to the oil embargo created by the then newly formed OPEC countries that for those of us old enough to remember sent oil prices skyrocketing through the roof leading to a world wide gasoline shortage. Many gas stations had mile (literally) long line-ups to get it and many small business gas stations folded as a result. So I made a finale season of sorts and gave it a fitting name. I'll let you download the mod to find out what I named it.

I have written an extensive readme that includes pictures to go along with the written instructions as to how to utilize the Seasons files and by all means, if anyone needs any further assistance, pm me as I'll be happy to help. While the cars will work no matter which season or track hdc file is loaded, it is highly recommended to use the proper track version of the car's hdc file in order to get the most out of the mod. Be sure to read the readme folks!

this link contains the entire mod including 18 tracks by PhilRob, BillBro and Racerm as these great fellows were kind enough to give me permission to include and many are versions that have never either been seen in GTR2 before! That said, not all of the tracks needed are included. Those tracks are readily available through other forums and if you need any help with this, pm me.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7Kausx0sbuLNm1HbFlRZE5wRE0/view?usp=sharing

This next link contains the full mod but without the tracks

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7Kausx0sbuLWndqYUhwZHZHSUk/view?usp=sharing

This last link contains the tracks ONLY

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7Kausx0sbuLZG1JU2pXSlJaZnM/view?usp=sharing

While I did my best to make the cars as close and realistic to their real counterparts, I know quite well that the cars by lap times are too fast to the originals. I know they probably have too much grip. It has always been my belief since I began my sim racing life that the problem of the missing seat-of-the-pants or butt pucker as I call it was missing. This meant that typically the only way you could drive a car that had supposedly real tire grip meant basically crawling around. Any more and you were either spinning the rears and or locking up the brakes and/or missing turns and crashing as you don't get the time to react to the impending doom/butt pucker that you'd have in real life. So I gave them more grip and therefore a bit more of a chance to catch the car from spinning as well as the opportunity to really wring them out that you would dare do without it. Now, it's hardly like the cars are on rails as you can still spin them out or blow wide entering a turn with the brakes locked up but just not as much. Have fun and work your setups!


I would also like to point out that as it sits currently, EVO MODDING is the only public forum this mod will be released at so if word of it should spread, I hope EVO is ready for new members!

Finally, a very Merry Christmas to all of you!


Phil (hmmguy)


Something I forgot to mention folks, this mod originally only had 3 or 4 sort of kinda cockpits with a functioning steering wheel only. Most simply had a painted hole to call the cockpit. Then as I mention in the readme, a few fellows helped toward correcting this. dbr added the first proper cockpits for what was called the "Ford vs Chevy" mini mod I made from the T70s once I realized the potential variations the original mod had. Then a friend that goes by the nn tomtom (not sure if he's a member here) created a generic cockpit for the 917/30s and the various versions of the Shadows before work stole him away...or back is more like it hehe Then a while layer, a fellow member here that goes by kikoya offered to help by taking what tomtom had done and he began adapting that generic cockpit to a large number of the cars until he too was stolen back. Along the way he stumbled across some proper cockpit files for the Chaparrals that were already there but named wrong or something similar and he brought those to life for all the Chappys. All together I think there are now only 10 or 11 cars left with that sad hole in the painted cockpit left to complete every car having a cockpit. Even still this makes for another huge advancement to the quality of the cars. Even then, there are still going to be other errors graphically in need of someone willing to make the needed corrections. Such as with the mirrors on some of the cars perhaps showing the wrong side or even looking straight up and anywhere between...or still missing outright for that matter. Lest we forget, aside from the M1B, these cars originated from SCGT a decade ago. Thanks to a very talented fellow member and sim racing god (PhilRob) the car models have more than quadrupled in file size and quality. Just the car graphics alone today are as much as the entire original mod used be with everything included lol!

Should you discover anything else such as the mirrors problems or other parts wrong graphically and know how to correct them, I can't thank you enough! Also if anyone is willing to take a crack at adding generic cockpits (beats a hole with paint to look), please pm here bounce

I need to say one more thing here and I'll be adding this comment to the op as well as I think it important that I do so.

While I did my best to make the cars as close and realistic to their real counterparts, I know quite well that the cars by lap times are too fast to the originals. I know they probably have too much grip. It has always been my belief since I began my sim racing life that the problem of the missing seat-of-the-pants or butt pucker as I call it was missing. This meant that typically the only way you could drive a car that had supposedly real tire grip meant basically crawling around. Any more and you were either spinning the rears and or locking up the brakes and/or missing turns and crashing as you don't get the time to react to the impending doom/butt pucker that you'd have in real life. So I gave them more grip and therefore a bit more of a chance to catch the car from spinning as well as the opportunity to really wring them out that you would dare do without it. Now, it's hardly like the cars are on rails as you can still spin them out or blow wide entering a turn with the brakes locked up but just not as much.

Have fun and work your setups!

well it seems I managed to forget to pack one of the sounds...for the McLaren M6A. Thanks for the catch Gordon!

I have uploaded the fix for it to the bottom of the op. If you find any other sounds missing, please pm me so as I can post the files needed.

Dear hmmguy! What a surprise! Very well done! Congrats to make a so nice project and share it with us!

===============================================
Sorry to ask, but do do you intend to make a GTL version??
If not, what must I do? Only change classes line at each .car file? I think it's not only this.
Could you teach me, please?? Cheers and nice holidays for you!!

Thanks Ney!

As for how to convert the mod to GTL, I'd like to know how as well as I have no idea what all is required so I'm hoping someone else will enlighten us on how to do so!

Hope you have fun with the mod!

Ney, I already started to convert the cars only to GTL but the data is huuuge (hey Phil, what the... lol! ) and maybe it could take some time. Be patient... 'till the bold gets afro
lol!

PS: I think the "Shadow_dn4.CAS" file is missing. Phil, can you upload it please?
