Hi, my shoulders - pain forced me to give up on online racing a long time ago. There is only one exeption: when the SCIROCCO comes on LFS, which I am still waiting for. (No matter if the fuel consuption is faked or not) - I WANT MY SCIROCCO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
2008 to today ist 6 years of selling licences. I can perfectly understand that, it´s also (still) worth that money.
If I look at Iracing, which is incredebly expensive (and I drive too little to spend that much), LFS was allways at a GREAT price! And I allways stated that I would also pay for extra content (as I playes soo many hours).
I never asked for a new tyre model.
I would have liked to receive the scirocco and rockingham, the one or the other way....
Forget about it! LFS is dead. Come over to Steam, purchase Project CARS from Slightlymad Studios and come for 2013-type racing. The game is still under development, but You can expirence a new patch every week or so.
My secret theory is, that nothing big is in the oven of the devs.
There is not s3 in the pipeline and the physics, (come on!) are beeing announced for YEARS now, but no beta-testing or anything like that is in question, was never in question.
They are finde with selling a fiew hundret extra licences and that is about it.
They were looking for sponsors in the automibil-industry, but it did not work out all that fine, and now that the game is graphically outdated, there isn´t much that can be done...
I still somehow hope I am absolutely wrong, and they suddenly come up with some S3, content, cars, tracks, Night-vision, ladder-system, stuff & real life events, professional public relations that deserve the name and so on.
But nothing has change, exept a saftey patch and a open all tracks patch in about 6 YEARS! That´s eternal in the computer-gaining-world!
I am just saying, that ONE car and ONE new track as the new LFS-content,
without any perspective in therms of S3 and therefor a living LFS-community, will not be enought to keep this szene alive, as it once was.
The bad public relations of the DEVS only lead to one conclusion:
There is absolutely no development in the pipeline. That´s the impression I have.
