This site


I'm not going to go into extreme detail here, but I don't know if this site will be updated again.

I know ...... its way out of date. Real life caught up with me in 2011, and its amazing...... when you walk away from this for awhile, it drops right out of your top 10.

Plus, when you get more negative comments that the lists are less useful than other search methods, than you do positive comments that the lists are appreciated...... it tends to affect your motivation (after 13 years of doing it).

I have offered the pages to others to update, but no one sucke....... offered to accept the challenge. I do note the N3 guys wanted to take my lists and use them and I said no. So, they made their own........ and kept it updated for about.......... almost 6 months before abandoning it.

So, I think 1998 through 2011 is sufficient. Who knows....... I may get bored some weekend and update.

Right now, after 4 reformats, I don't even have my html composer software reinstalled. But, if I do get it back, I may update one more time.

So, ........ bottom line...... you want your stuff known...... post it here.

Lets face it; there are only a few track editors left, and as far as I know, all post here except one group.

Car sets..... JR is really good about announcing them here or getting them announced here, and there are other car sites that are much more active.

NR1999, what a great sim that was. First official release of the trucks, and some great tracks we had only dreamed about before.

Re: This site


Dave! Thanks! We've had some good times over the last however-many years.

I think N99Connection opened on Speedweeks 1999. Sierra put N99 out in the fall of 98.

Craig (one of the Sierra moderators) and set the place up after Bob James dumped his tracklist

Google pulled this old RuRa thread
http://www.rubbins-racin.com/forums/showthread.php/27816-Old-Papy-NR-Sites/page2

Some great old sites listed here. Design Tech (the owner of that site was only a few miles north of Tampa for me.......)


The original tracklist was Bob James Tracklist.
http://www.geocities.com/MotorCity/Track/4573/

Wayback link to access it: http://web.archive.org/web/20010411005107/http://www.geocities.com/MotorCity/Track/4573/

Man, you scroll through that site and it brings back old sites you'd long forgot about, like Phathead's N2 stuff.

Are you're old N1 sites still up?

He's even got a link to SRC and if you get there, you can pull up old SRC pages.

The original N2/99 tracklist http://web.archive.org/web/19990508210332/http://www.angelfire.com/biz2/n99tracks was a Quattro Pro spreadsheet pasted into an html web page. This site is messed up becuase its crossed with SRC stuff.

After we opened, Bob put his tracklists back up and Kurtis (webmaster at SRC) and I helped him with it for a bit, then Bob closed again, telling us to go for it. Shortly after, Craig left and I pulled Kurtis and rhamm in.......

I did N2/99/N3, Kurtis did GPL, and we brought rhamm in to do ICR, and SRC was born. We later incorporated Ratbag games, when I was into those. Turned that over to Matty (the guy who made a lot of Canadian tracks for 2k3) and then he disappeared. We gave the Heat pages to raybee and he still has them.

Lots of good people have come and gone. Coast to Coast, Racing Design, Simcyberworld. Folks you and I knew like MOF, Tim Bassinett, etc.

yellow flag
etc

Its been a good run. I had a lot of fun racing Winter Heats with the guys from Simcyber....... ran my own winter heats. Raced with Kaleague on Kali, ran some stuff on TEN.

Re: This site


hey, Dave.......

memory test here. What was Racing Designs before it merged with the track guys who eventually became Coast to Coast at Simcyberworld?

Brian O. ran the site. Racing Designs was a combo name to match the original Brian O. site and the track guys site? It was like Brian's site was something along the lines of "Racing" and the Coast to Coast guys earlier site was like Track Designs.

Man....... the only Coast to Coast guy I remember is Tony Krist.

Do you realize the guys who ran Speedway.net were all pre-teens and teens? Justin still shows up here occastionally.......

Re: This site


for those of you who are younger than GPL or never experienced GPL, or did experience GPL and have forgotten...

before there were really blurry youtube videos, people used to make really good movies that you downloaded and viewed.

Here are a couple of my favorites:

Evolution. Images done by Steve Banks (a former Sierra board and SRC board member who went by SB (not SB70)). 42 megs Don't get lost in the car changes; pay attention to the tracks too.

and a great compilation of online races; (a little over focused on wrecks but still good) In a Blur 60 megs

If you never raced GPL, even offline, you may not appreciate the skill being demonstrated in this latter video. Trust me....... its awesome.

And remember this is a 1998 game kept alive by its dedicated users. Evolution came out in 2002; where are they now........ I still run 2001 cars.

Re: This site


I've just recently bought GPL on eBay had it recommended to me over at SRMZ...The first thing I noticed after installing all the updates was WOW!! the feeling of the cars on the road is amazing!! I've not got a wheel (some say "a true Sim racer has got to have a wheel") I just use a gamepad, always have emoticon But I agree GPL is right up there, "Bloody awesome mate" emoticon as we say in the UK. And I know I will play GPL for a lot more years yet emoticon
