Since my F1 Challenge 99-02 is now working fully, I've started to download a ton of mods for it. I've currently got all seasons from 1989 to 1996 working perfectly (that includes tracks not found in the original game, like Jacarepagua, Estoril, Jerez, Buenos Aires and Adelaide, which often fail to work properly in most mods). I'll soon start installing the 1997 season and hope it will work just as fine, after which I'll move on to 1998. And of course I've got the original seasons as well...
Why I'm posting this here is that at some point I'm intending to start a new virtual career, which will hopefully become at least slightly as popular as Aerond's Dagnall saga. I will start it in 1989 driving for a minor team struggling to prequalify (Rial, Coloni, EuroBrun etc.), and try to work my way up step by step as the seasons pass. At the moment I've got a good hunch on how I can simulate prequalifying, and as I already said I've progressed well in installing mods and making them work properly (speaking of which, anyone got a download for the 1997 Lola? Can't find it on Racesimulations.com anymore).
The only big thing that I'm still considering is my character. All of my current characters are either too young or too old, or have other factors that limit their availability (Nikolai Nurmovitsch would be of an ideal age, but it would be extremely unrealistic for a driver from Soviet Union to get into F1 in 1989). So I'm open to suggestions, although I'm likely to make up something really unique after I give it a bit more of thought. In any case, he/she will be a pay driver for the first couple of seasons (how else could one get a drive at the lower end of the grid anyway...)
This career will obviously clash with Dagnall's, so I'm willing to keep the two careers completely separate from each other.
