The original mod only had a handful of bikes from the early 90's (Doohan & Gardner's 1992 Honda, Lawson's 1992 Cagiva, Schwantz's 1993 Suzuki and Kocinski 1994 Cagiva) so I decided to expand the grid. I created new content focusing between 1991 through 1993 and fixed/tweaked existing source Milestone textures to create additional (very high-quality) bikes and riders for a few of the teams in the great GP 500 mod. This means both bike and suits (sometimes including scratch-made helmets, boots, and normal maps). As a bonus, I have also recreated paints for stock suits for both Norifumi Abe's 1993 All Japan and Valentino Rossi's 2004 non-tobacco variant. Sadly, all bikes have the same performance (by design of the original mod), so you won't be able to enjoy the different characteristics of each - but at least they'll look very good!

If you already have the GP 500 mod, you can choose to only download the expansion. If you don't, you can download the complete pack. Both will install and load ingame, with rider-specific helmets and suits neatly organized as well. PS: You will need to get the Modern Rider model and Helmet megapack (both available through the link below) to correctly load all textures.

For the additional content, I have re-arranged all relevant textures (bikes, riders, helmets) to be stand-alone for each of their series and have removed irrelevant textures such as forum user skins or modern paints from the packs. This means a few gb are saved in the process and the folders are better organized. The folder structure is compatible with the latest GP Bikes update, so this is drag and drop. All files are safe to overwrite originals without risk of online mismatch.

You are welcome to redistribute my work but you must provide credit, preferably providing the readme file and a link to this topic.

I can not download all as a set as the hosting site asks me to pay to download???

It is making me download each file alone and a pain for me to do and to then host on database?

The 7z is a better way. I use rar to pack most things but 7z works and thanks for doing so.

It is hard for me to download and then upload sets to the GPB database so this helps thanks.

I will download and upload to database

First post edited with a monumental update. Previous textures have been revised, meaning updates to suits and all new boots, plus the Honda drivers have been added. The research and recreation of a few things was very tough due to the lack of reference images/footage but I was able to get it all to a good enough point. Hopefully this is enough incentive to have a Historical Edition of the GP 500 mod at some point.

Phew! This took a while.

Thanks for the hard work but it is so much work to keep track and updating the database.

PLEASE can you just have NEW updates in a seperate file so I dont have to keep uploading, deleting reuploading deleting etc?

Thanks

DD

EDIT: BIG problem is you added more than paint files that can mess up someones GPBikes if they have problems with new rider model!!!

You MUST inform people this before they install what they think are just skins!!!

It HAS happened to me before so please do NOT add GAME files to PAINT SETS

Thanks

Final planned post on this topic as the first post has been updated. Extensive rework of all previous paints with the addition of a lot more, with new boots, ambient occlusion, updated normal maps, and a very detailed readme document. The first post will be updated any time there are further refinements or other changes, and the links will remain active.

Thank you so much for your hard work and understanding on my part.

I think what I have on the database should work and be correct.

It is just the new Manu rider model and additional files caused a BIG problem for me and it can be such a problem to fix.

I look forward to making a special video for Steve Parrish, a former 500cc champion and this set is needed to do so.

Look forward to more work from you

First post update with everything redone, plus new material. No changelog in this post because every previously existing item was remade or revamped, with the biggest items being boots and truly accurate suits. New GP 500 add-on previews have also been added.

I might update this in the future if I find better reference images to create Carl Fogarty's 1994 Cagiva wildcard entry, and of course to keep up with any future updates to the mods themselves. This is a labour of love and will not be abandoned.

As usual, a detailed readme is available with relevant credits provided.
