PostSubject: The car you always promised yourself...   Sun 18 Mar 2018, 9:00 am

I distinctly remember saying that i wouldn't start making any more cars until i'd learned how to map them first. study

And yet somehow here i am again doing yet another mod... Rolling Eyes

To be fair, my mapping adventures sort of stalled due to smoothing issues with the Capri's and while enlisting the help of Pizzaman (Mario) to sort things i was sidetracked into this while he concentrates on the mapping part for now Wink

I've thought for a while that GTL needs a proper Capri mk1. The in-game originals are ok but the proportions are off imo (too wide) and so when i found a really nice base model i decided there was good potential in it to re-create some real racers.

The stock bodied cars are getting improvements to the arches and rear side windows as well as the 3ltr power bulge adding to the options list. There's gonna be both early and facelift versions too as well as a vinyl top as a few were raced in the BTCC with them.



I also wanted to make proper Special Saloon Capris from the 70's as there were some real monsters raced so i've been making custom wheels, arches and suspension for them. Early days yet but they're starting to take shape.

Mick Hill's original Boss Capri;



Tony Strawson's later version;



Mick Hill's Boss 2 car;



They'll be others to come too and possibly the 3 Fergusson 4x4 Rallycross cars at some point.

What i really need now is a little help. Is anyone familiar with the game 'Racer'? That's where the Capri came from and i'd like to trace the original author to obtain permission to release these properly. I can't find a read-me with any contact details but i think he could be using the name 'Raven' as there's 3 different skins in the folder under that name (Raven variants).

If anyone can shed light on this and help me find him i'd be most grateful thumbup

Cheers,

Mel

Sadly, I haven't even heard of the game (and google is of no real help??)... but the Capris are very cool! (i'm a low key fan of super saloons) and the potential to finally have a proper wide RS2600 LW is great, as well as variations of the LW like the Rouse Broadspeed Capri from 73!
Best of luck with the project! cheers

Hi Philrob,

Nice skin! I did the Rod Chapman car based on a re-scaled Perana capri with Essex V6 and four wheel drive! I think i can make a better job with this new shell though, the sides are much more accurate;

I originally discovered the game while searching for a Hillman Imp to convert to GTL ages ago. There's one in racer too but i ended up using the one Hutch sent me as it was a lot more detailed.
I can't find that original site anymore but there is this page with cars to download: http://www.tracciontrasera.es/downloads/category/4-racer-coches
It'd be nice to find the original author although they could be anywhere by now Rolling Eyes

After browsing through the site, I can guess that the author of the mod is the admin of the site, someone nicknamed "tt". He is still active apparently with most recent posts dating back to roughly 1 month ago here > http://www.tracciontrasera.es/forum/racer/1915-can-anyone-do-this-car.

Mate, I want the Fiat X 1/9. (maybe I to make a GTL mod).
The Tracciontrasera site, which you showed, is contained in a "Racer" game.
What is this game? Google can't find... Surprised

Hope I'm not particularly bothersome, but is there any progress on the beautiful Capris, Zee? Thanks a lot for all your work!

They're a bit stalled at the moment due to Pizzaman recovering after his eye op and me getting sidetracked trying to make an Opel Commodore D GSE Laughing

Hopefully things should get moving again soon, it's mostly skinning and a few details to sort but don't hold your breath silent  Wink
