F1 1978 V1.5 is a standalone mod.
The 1979 mod contains tracks that are used if you want to run a accurate 1978 season. The same goes for the other track links.

F1 1978 V1.5... Is this a standalone mod OR an addon to the F1 1979 Mod? On the main mod page for the download there is a link indicating that the 79 mod is required.

Any knowledgeable response would be much appreciated.
