Hi all,

after getting a build of TORCS-NG 1.5 SDL from Brian i will go on with my menu rework too.

Bugs:
- the controls like "arrow-left-pushed.png" will not be scaled, i tried generate nice ones in 64x64 and they
    are now to big
- Most screens designed centred others not
- What's the difference between all the racing options (Career <> Championships, Quick<>Practice etc.) ? We have to check it!
    The help text for the entries at "Select Race" aren't much helpfull, they should describe
    the racing option and not repeating the entries only.

Ideas "Select Race"
- Just some options: "Online Race", "Championship", "Career" and "Quick Race"
- At the "Championship" screen you can select what kind of you like to drive


Ideas Tracks:
- track should be get a location name and as an addon the tech name. As an example my
    2nd rework of Dirt-3 will be named (because i located it there) "New England (Dirt-3)"
- The Sky Dome feature should be on by default, so we do not need background with a sky.
    Track that using the background for mountains etc. need to be updated with some mesh faces
    around the track for mapping the mountains there. 

Ideas Simulation und Graphic Menu:
- The "Options" menu "Graphic" and "OpenGL" should be one and called "Graphic"
- The "Options" menu "Simulation" should have a right-left arrow section for setting
     up the simulation level in "Less", "Medium" or "Strong" to setup realistic or arcade driving.
    This is very important for the success of the game. The past shows that we have two kind of
    usergroups:
        - One wing like realistic driving and become a fan of our game
        - The others dislike how our game act and think it is two hard to drive, because
            they aren't a friend of 100% realistic driving style.

Ideas Cars:
- Now we have choosen new names for the cars but not for the car categories. We have to many categories
    with just one car! That's bad.
    As an example the Supercup:Stuttgart Supercup could be part of the LD-GT1 categorie.
- Skin selection and car preview would be great

Tasks:
- I woud start first adjust some screen in GIMP and write a guide about a design grid and spacing
- Creating previews screens again in 512x512px so they look much better in higher resolutions
- Creating a standard screen.xml file
