Player Steering Wheel Rotation Patch Released: Sunday, December 24, 2023
Download: Please register to download 98C 180 Deg StWheel Patch.zip 197.57 KB Author: PTRACER
Here's a little Christmas gift from me. Sorry it's not much.

This patch increases the total allowed rotation of the player's steering wheel from 160 degrees left and right (GPL default) to 180 degrees (360 degrees in total).

Since the increased rotation may cause clipping in some cars, another patch has been provided with 172 degrees of rotation. If you are bothered by the clipping use the 172 deg patch accordingly.
GPL Slipstream Patch v3.1 Released: Sunday, October 15, 2023
Download: Please register to download GPL_Slipstream_v3.1.zip 765.13 KB Author: PTRACER
Update: The patch has now been updated to v3.1. Please be sure to delete the v3.0 files and follow the installation instructions again from scratch.

GPL Slipstream Patch V3 restores the original game's slipstream physics and equalises them across all 3rd party mods. It also modifies the draft's strength and length to bring GPL more in line with modern sims with the model being mathematically based on the slipstream physics of Assetto Corsa. 

As a bonus, it fixes a bug in the 1967 V2 and 1955 F1 mods which prevented the engine from blowing when overrevved. 

Please note that players using this addon online will be unable to join unpatched servers and unpatched players will be unable to join patched servers. The saving of Best Laps is also prevented to avoid impact on the times in GPLRank.

v3.1 Changelog
- Fixed a bug which prevented the green button from being displayed in World Championship mode
- Disabled World Championship and Single Player modes in the 60fps patches

Be sure to read all instructions/FAQs before requesting support.
98a Various AI Fixes for GPL 1955 v1.2 Released: Sunday, January 22, 2023
Download: Please register to download 1955Mod_VariousAIFixes_v1.2.zip 817.45 KB Author: PTRACER
Please note, this patch is totally safe to use online and with GPLRank. It does not make a single change to the player physics, only the AI.

1. By default, GPL 1955's AI cars use too much steering lock in the turns, giving the impression they are constantly understeering. This mod remaps the AI's steering ratio to reduce this effect.

2. The amount of suspension deflection for the 1955's AI cars has always been excessive, particularly on the Monza banking. This sometimes results in the AI cars bottoming out and having an accident. This patch limits the amount of suspension movement for each AI car to reduce the chances of this happening and visually looks better as well.

3. Fixed a bug which caused the AI's tyres to be clipping with the ground. This has the added bonus of reducing the "droopy" suspension look of some of the AI cars.

4. Reduced the revs of the AI cars before the race start, since several of them exceed their maximum RPM on the grid, potentially affecting reliability

5. Modified the Gordini and Vanwall AI cars to make them a little faster off the line (player physics unaffected). 

Changelog
v1.0 - Initial release
v1.1 - Minor update to the Gordini AI
v1.2 - Added the Monza10k banking detection feature
60fpsaiv1 with FPS Checking Released: Saturday, December 24, 2022
Download: Please register to download 60fpsaiv1online.zip 1.45 KB Author: PTRACER
This adds FPS check code to the 60fpsaiv1.xml patch which is typically used to host online races for the 1969-Extra mod and GPLGT mod in 60fps.

Server admins should activate this if they wish to prevent 36fps clients from joining their 1969X server.

Please note: Any clients who wish to join will also require the new patch. This patch is, as of now, untested on a live server but was found to be working when testing via LAN. Therefore this should be regarded as a BETA release only.

GPL AI Speed Control Patch Released: Friday, October 7, 2016
Download: Please register to download GPL AI Speed Control Patch v2.zip 1.19 KB Author: Lee Bowden
AI speed is a complex interaction among several .ini files and the gpl.exe code. The prime determinate of AI speed is the driver's hype setting; however, it is often difficult to match the driver's cornering speed to his straight line speed. Quite often, if the driver's straight line speed is set correctly by his hype setting, then his corner speed is too fast. This patch lowers the corner speed.
