Il team GTL Workshop è al lavoro sulla nuova versione 3.2 del suo incredibile mod!
Well its almost two years since the last update to P&G.
Those of you who have been following progress will be aware that the team has shrunk in size. Another reason for the long time between updates is its taken some time for me to get up to speed with creating GTR2 physics.
The good news is there isn't much longer to wait for the next update. We plan to release it in Quarter 4 this year i.e. between September and December.
We expected that most users of 3.1 would already have 3.0 so it was only released as an update to 3.0. While our assumption was probably correct, downloading and installing 3.0 then 3.1 is cumbersome for new users or those re-installing, and to have to install another patch is really a step too far. So the new update will be available as both a "patch" to 3.1 and as a complete install.
In the past month we have been working on the Alpine A110s to give them a modest update. It is not a complete reworking like the GT40 and Porsche 906.
Although we received invaluable help from a NoGrip member Roger who is an Alpine A110 owner, data on the Alpine in road racing is quite scarce. The publication of the book Alpine Renault - the fabulous berlinettes in 2013 has shed some new light. In particular it highlighted that the A110s entered into the 1966 Targa Florio were 1300s rather than the 1100s we currently have. This will be corrected in 3.2 - both in the physics and the model. The A110 models lack passenger seats and these have been added. Finally, the GT Legends A110 omits the back-fire feature and this omission was carried over to P&G. The backfire has been added to the cars for 3.2.
Cars with low power output such as the Alpines are sensitive to rolling resistance. The rolling resistance of these cars has been reduced in line with Dunlop data from the period and the aerodynamic drag has also been reduced a little to match new data on maximum speeds.
We just have to finish work on a major update to the cockpit of one of our cars and work on 3.2 should be complete. We believe we are still on track to release before the end of the year.
