Fictional circuit for Grandprix 3
Fictitious circuit for Grandprix 3 in the tradition of notorious ultra-fast tracks in bernese forests, without newfangled security gadgets like gravel fields or tyre walls, but with indoor pits (it rains pretty often lately!) and a quarry section.
The idea for the pit lane design is based on the “Parking Track” of Bob Pearson.
click to download hardware-version here: gr01_hw.zip
click to download software-version here: gr01_sw.zip (about 540k)
if somebody likes to host it on his/her page
i’d suggest to just insert a link to http://www.grandprix3.ch/
as i won’t announce eventual updates of the track individualy.
(and of course i never mind a little notification, if you do so :)
for software version create a custom dir called:
in your GP3JAMS\ directory and copy the jam-files from gr01_sw.zip into it.
for hardware version create a custom dir called:
in your GP3JAMSH\ directory
then copy the trackfile f1ct16.dat to the CIRCUITS directory.
beware: you may want to save or rename your original f1ct16.dat before.
- if you get grey areas where the fences should be, you missed
the correct jams-directory name
- if gp3 crashes to desktop when loading the track you maybe mixed up the hardware- and software jams
- if it still crashes to desktop, you may want to try another slot (default slot: f1ct16.dat)
-in the back part of the track sometimes some textures of some
cc-cars become invisible for a moment. you can watch this e.g. in the tv-cams right
after "swervins step" (see gp2-map
for reference) or in the quarry section.
any ideas about the nature of the problem is very welcome !
-raindrops in the pits despite the roof ! gp3 seems to be not designed for handling indoor pits :)
