Excel tracklist

Post by ismael »

Hello all,

I'm not sure if this will be useful to someone, but I'd like to share it anyway. If it's useful to one person, it will be good enough. It's an Excel tracklist of the GP2 tracks I've been collecting over the years. Many of them I haven't tried it yet.

Please mind the following notes:

  • For the reference links in column A, I used preferably the racingcircuits.info as a standard. I used English Wikipedia whenever RacingCircuits hadn't it. There may be a couple of other sites as references. Whenever there isn't a link, it's because this is a work in progress and I haven't put it yet (same goes for the jams folder name column, and for the whole of the file, actually).
  • You'll find lots of comments or notes in Portuguese. Apart from the Portuguese Brazilians, with whom I share this beautiful langage, I'm sorry about that.
  • Some of the comments may have innacurate, outdated, useless, bad evaluation or just wrong information.
  • I made a column for slots because I'm lazy with Magic Data and I don't want to spend time searching for the ideal Magic Data values. I use the suggested slot whenever there is one.
  • In the sheet Tracks there can be different or very close versions of the same track but many lines apart. As I'm using filters, I didn't care much about that, but gradually I'll be placing them next to each other. It's a work in progress.
  • Apart from the sheet "Tracks", there are the sheets Multi and MultiTracks List. These are about different versions (made by different authors) of the same circuit. Apart eventual errors, I consider a change in the track to be a different circuit. However, this is a work in progress; for instance, different Imola versions are still all set together.
  • There are a lot of tracks available in this site that are still not included here. Most US ovals aren't, for instance, as I still haven't wandered a lot on oval racing. This, too, is a work in progress. However, I think that almost every track released over the last 7 years (since I joined this forum) and not updated by Andreas Schulz to the track list is included here.

Again, I'm sorry for any innacuracy that might eventualy be hidden in these long sheets.

Cheers

I create a folder with all of the magic data files, and whenever I play on a track I use the slot number that works best. As I change things I save a copy of the magic data file so I can improve it more and more as I fine tune it. This way, the next time I want to run that same specific track the magic data is closer to where it should be for me.

If you're willing to share that folder with us, I would be glad :wink: although I'll probably do what I've been doing lately: 10% races with a single qualifying lap, like Ted Meat has done recently with "GP1", with a set of 16 new tracks, and a Super Monaco carset.

I can zip up the folder and upload it but I don't have the tracks named and segregated like you do so it may be confusing. Once I normally find a track I want to use I simply put the JAM folder into my gamejams and rename the track something like this "silverstone_1999_f1ct07.dat". I keep all of my tracks in the game folder and only rename them 1 at a time when I want to use them in a specific slot.

Personally for me, the aim of all of the modifications and tuning I do is to just increase my fun and realism in GP2. I tweak the magic data to get the fuel use right, and difficulty really challenging. I only do 100% race lengths and I really like to struggle to keep up the entire time. Right now I am doing the 1997 season and I just raced at Magny Cours. I had the difficulty set so challenging that it was really fun! I struggled for 20 laps to catch and pass Michael Schumacher and when I finally did get him because traffic slowed him down, my transmission broke in 2 more laps!
