Quote from Bone34 :I honestly think the biggest thing you should focus on after all the S3 content that you're working on is released should be an ability to create community-made maps, which is one of the big features of other simulators. Just let's face it, there would be endless amounts of new tracks modeled by players that we could race on.

best post ever

Quote :I don't think Scawen has done what you've described. All the OR images are from current version of LFS, not the "S3" fork (as I'd presume it's done).

Actually check this: https://share.oculus.com/app/live-for-speed-s2

I'd call it false advertisment, knowing that the devs put that up themselves.

Dont want to sound like a big douche here but atleast they don't advertise on other websites in a desperate attempt to gain customers, like Oculust rift vr with pictures of the scirocco and rockingham that haven't been available to actual users for 6 years. lol

Since I saw an 'update' about the new fence rendering system, I was just utterly ashamed of LFS for some reason and felt like i was waiting for years just to get a couple of new turns and some new fence rendering system to gain a couple FPS for win95 users... So I went searching for an alternative for the time being and i paid 15$ for 3 months of iRacing.

Compared to LFS the multiplayer functionality is different but its also new to me. I've bought Bathurst for 13$ which didn't make a big dent in my account even if i only work part time and get close to minimum wage. I think of the investment as not buying crap loads of beer when i go out with friends and instead putting some of that cash into iRacing and see what comes of it.

I got my Class D license within a week and i must say its clean and really competitive racing all the way, the rolling start system is well done and it requires patience. I remember it was my first rolling start and i didn't know proper procedure of which car to let through and which car to stay behind so i passed a leading driver before the green light went on. Afterwards i got a private message form the same driver welcoming me to iRacing and understanding I'm new and even gave me a link to the sporting code after telling me tips on how to get a good start in the rolling start procedure.

That was my introduction to the iRacing community, seems like a mature and intelligent bunch that just gets together for some clean decent racing for the evening. In my opinion, physics wise at least with the Pontiac Solstice and Mazda MX 5 Cup car really fun to drive and gives good FFB response and you can feel the car like in LFS except without the massive give of tires and slipping all over the place if your not on slicks. Of course people might say something about the slip angles or whatever. Yes, if you loose the car mid corner there's a 80% chance you're going to not regain control, I think it depend on the FFB settings, steering lock and of course the drivers reaction time, I've managed to do some drifts on the MX 5 cup car myself although they weren't done on purpose but it is possible. but you don't buy iRacing for drifting anyways so I don't see why anyone would complain about drifting in iRacing.

I still love LFS and will forever be subsribed to the forums and enjoy the new Westhill version whenever it comes out. LFS tire physics simulation has not been beat yet from competitors but the lack of updates and lack of new people on the LFS team just shows that further progress will be as slow as before and every update after Rockingham, Westhill and etc will just take even more time to complete. So i suggest using your free time wisely and see and experience new simulations, software. It really is a fun little Sim aside from the money being spent if you take it seriously enough. Just thought i'd share my experience with you guys, hope it wasn't too long of a read

I Believe I've found a bug in the treeline behind the fences in aston. Seems like the alpha on the texture isnt working or applied?

The trees now somehow blend in and look better. Maybe its just because I've never really looked at them that much? You be the judge

Nice camera angles and effects but the pink and green color scheme that you carried on the whole movie just ruined it for me
