Macau Formula Three GP 2009 Mod Version 1.00
==============================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DISCLAIMER:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- This mod is basically a skin update with minor tweaks in different departments (Tires, RFM file, HDV, etc.) to emulate the 2009 Macau Formula Three Grand Prix. Some parts of the mod are based from previous F3 mods (i.e. ISI rf3 model, F3 Euroseries 2007 mod, etc.) and all credits go to them for creating such a big foundation for this mod.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DESCRIPTION:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This mod includes the following:

- All entries of the 2009 Macau F3 GP (Drivers from British F3, F3 Euroseries, All-Japan F3, German F3, Italian F3, Formula V6 and GP2)
- All custom livery used in the 2009 Macau F3 GP (The likes of Jules Bianchi clock theme, Intrepid design of Stefano Coletti, ART GP version of Sam Bird, etc.)
- Drivers Performance are based from there respective Racing League to give a more equal playing field
- Guia Circuit (Credits to the game it came from and the converter of the Circuit) - slightly modified to decrease repeating crashes on the same sector
- Customized GDB to emulate the Race Weekend

Guia Circuit Fix:

- I am still currently testing and I have seen some cars ending up inside the tirewall and parking behind some of the buildings. I updated the track a bit and added a tirewall to block this entrance.

INSTALLATION
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Unzip downloaded file
2. Copy and paste everything to your rFactor folder
3. Run rFactor, select F3 Macau and enjoy!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
EMULATE THE REAL FORMAT
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The format of the Macau GP is from the Qualifying Session, it will go to a Qualification Race in order to get the grid for the Sunday Race which is the Macau F3 GP. As we all know this cannot be done automatically in rFactor but it can be manually done. The "CCH" file in your "Userdata" folder holds the records and positions in your current race season. Below will give you a little step by step on how we will emulate the real Macau GP weekend:

1. In Race Season, finish the Macau Qualification Race
2. Once done, go to the Macau F3 "CCH" file and the open it with "Text Editor" or a simple "Notepad"
3. Look for the line under CAREERSEASON named "CurrentRace" then change it to "1" (If it is already "1" then don't change it)
4. Also look for the line "RaceSession" and change it to "6"
5. In Race Season, run the Macau GP and now you should be in the "Warmup Session". Finish the "Warmup Session" then you should have the grid of your recent position in the Macau Qualification Race

If the grid is in correct then you have to manually correct it depending on your race finish in the Macau Qualification Race. To do so, locate for the line "CurrentGridPosition" and change the number to your recent race finish based on the Macau Qualification Race.

I have tested and usually this works without the step above but just to make sure, you can always double the line "CurrentGridPosition" to see if it shows the race finish based on the Macau Qualification Race.

Its a hefty load of work to do but you can actually emulate the Race Weekend thru this file. It has not only worked for me with my Mods but also F1 mods and emulating the Qualifying Knock Out System. I am just geek about this =), sorry if this is TMI (Too Much Information).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
OTHER INFO'S
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Same principle like in Monaco, if you don't qualify in the top 10, its hard to finish in the points or podium (well for me as I have tried over I think more than 20 times).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SPECIAL THANKS TO:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nunux - for the great mod as my basis and especially the TEMPLATES. Without it, its going to be impossible to make this mod.

Hi AJD, nice mod. About the track I noticed that is a gap between the fence and the road on a portion of the circuit.

And WHY black horizon? The "normal" track has not...
trecinni on Dec-15-2009

What version of rFactor are you using? The sound that the Mod use is the default ones on rFactor... I believe (I'm not sure) if you are using the rFactor lite version, maybe it doesn't have the "rf3" sounds...
