Introducing: IFM – International Formula Masters 2009

First of all, let us introduce you to a our latest project a little bit.

IFM – what is it?

The International Formula Master (IFM) was the successor of the F3000 International Masters series. It was held as a supporting series during the European WTCC races from 2007 till 2009. The series was a junior Formula series which was thought as a stepping stone into the GP2 just like the Formula 3 Euro Series. The cars were manufactured by Italian based company Tatuus and were comparable to smaller single seaters like the Formula 3 cars. But they looked more like a small version of a pre-2009 Formula 1 car.

The series was thought to run at least 3 more years, but FIA launched their own junior formula series in 2009 (Formula Two) and many teams and drivers left.

Why are we doing this mod?

With rFactor 2 coming up with lots of new features, we needed a “small” mod to test out all the new things and every aspect especially of the new packaging. The car was made by Stefan ‘erale’ Triefellner back in 2009. The 2008 version was finished pretty quickly, but as the car always was supposed to be a rFactor 2 mod work was stopped eventually. With the upcoming rFactor 2 release it was clear that the mod would be picked up again so he gave it a small touch up and brought the car to its 2009 spec and we started to experiment doing new shaders, materials and testing out all rF2 related features. Within the upcoming weeks we want to show you in a devblog series our progress, maybe a few experiments with new material settings and so on.

What about the release?

Our current plan is to create a few liveries and helmets and release the full grid with placeholder cars together with templates. This way the community can create the missing or even own liveries/helmets and we don’t want to invest more time than needed for IFM and focus on F1 1994 (which is still our main priority for rF2) instead.

Here is a small teaser picture for our blog readers :) .

IFM 2009: Before and after…

http://devblog.ctdp....fore-and-after/

We introduced you briefly to our International Formula Master mod for rFactor2. As we mentioned the model was originally build in 2009 and we'd like to show you a comparison with of the original model with the one we will use in the mod. In these shots you can spot the differences between the two models. One of them was made in the year 2009 and features the 2008 spec of the car. The other was overhauled 2012 and features the 2009 spec of the car. The differences in the spec include a pretty big fin on the engine cover, new endplates for the rear wing and brake ducts on the front and rear. Other adjustments were fixing normal issues on the whole car and updating the modeled joint lines on the body to CTDP standards we developed during our F1 1994 modeling.

IFM 2009 : Revised helmet model

Today we want to present you the helmet model of our IFM 2009 mod. It was originally created by Eugenio Faria and was part of our F1 2006 Mod as well as the F1 2007 BMW F1 car we created for ISI as an add on for rFactor 1.

So this helmet has quite a history. Back then in 2006/2007 it was top notch quality. But for our current project we revised the model to bring it up to our current quality standards. The result can be seen below. We will post another blogpost with an interactive comparison as soon as (CTDP)Dahie is back from his well deserved holiday.

Grazie a questo mod il team ha scoperto un problema nel mappaggio della vettura, che è gestito in maniera diversa dal primo rF. Dopo qualche test sono riusciti a risolverlo in maniera alternativa, ma ciò impedisce loro di convertire il mod F1 2006, al momento. Dovrebbero rifare tutte le livree per tutti i team e richiederebbe un lavoro esagerato. Speriamo gli ISI mettano una pezza a questo problema.

Per vedere la vettura prima e dopo aver corretto il problema cliccate qui: sul loro blog c'è un utile confronto in tempo reale, basta spostare la barra presente sullo screen.

IFM 2009 : More liveries

While Andy and erale continue their detail modelling work on the car: such as rims and lods, our painters are busy working on liveries. Due to the normals issue, this work has been on hold for a little while and is back on track now. Dennis ‘mediocre’ Schmidt is working on JD Motorsport. Meanwhile, we welcome our new member Patrik ‘AtomAmeise’ Bartnik, who also worked on the LMT DTM mods. His first textures for CTDP are the various liveries of Cram Competition and Trident Racing.

More pictures! Juluka, AtomAmeise crank it up and work their way on the livery front. Juluka completed work on Fabio Leimer’s car. AtomAmeise worked his way through the liveries of Trident Racing and Cram Competition and also started corresponding helmet liveries.
