What happened to gamma?

I was describing this transformation:

OK, let's look at the equations [itex]t'=tvx[/itex] and [itex]x'=xvt[/itex] in a little more detail.

Which has no gamma. I was showing a transformation (not the Lorentz transform) which had relativity of simultaneity, but not length contraction nor time dilation. The transformation above is not a useful transform for physics, just an example showing that the relativity of simultaneity is not the same thing as length contraction and time dilation.
