10 years since the "new" car was supposed to be implemented and people still make thread about possible new cars lol

Mainly because it takes like 15 secs to get into a race, and is the only one that allows to play properly with M&K. I bought rF2 a couple weeks ago since it was on sale, but being on a 15'6 laptop, playing with the wheel is less than ideal because I can barely see the turns.
If I'll ever get a proper PC, or at least a bigger monitor, I will probably quit LFS. It's getting boring using always the same cars and tracks (inb4 "yOu HavEn'T trIed alL combOs!!1!), not to mention the AI is simply embarassing, the worst on the market. So until then, I stick with LFS.

I have been wondering, for some time, what is the actual source of income for the devs? It can't be the licenses alone, so where do they earn money? With server rental?

Quote from bishtop :You can find your encounters info(racers met) from LFSWORLD which enables you to see who and how many times you encounter someone online with a couple of filters.

The majority of the racers are licensed racers, and all it takes is to go to a licensed server and people will follow. Our (MRc) Saturday event has good turnouts (usually full server), so the racers are out there.

Ah I see. Too bad I can't practice with my wheel. All I have is a laptop, and the screen is way too small for me to use a wheel, I can't see properly, so I'm forced to use the mouse, and it's kinda a turn off

Quote from NumberTwo :Lfs for me has only one problem. And that is getting new guys in, and getting them to respectable level. Because nowadays, on competitive races, if you are too slow you dont even qualify for a race. Skill level is quite high overall.

Basically this, that's the main reason I don't race online. There are no users matching my skill level, so considering there's only high skilled drivers online, that would mean like doing a time attack, because i get gappped quickly. And the SP with the AI is really bad as well

Quote from bishtop :This month i have not raced as often but still have raced against 717 different racers,even though a majority may be demo racers they are racers that are usually over 100 experience and with an FBM laptime of 1.18 or less on FBM bl2. Usually its well over 1000 by now

Even though I don't know how you got those numbers, as you said yourself, the majority are demo racers, so what's the point on buying a license when you are restricted to demo content to have some good racing?

Quote from CLRS530 :And for the small user base. That will change when/if the update comes dramatically. Wink

To be honest, that's quite optimistic. Unless the new tyre model is something ground-breaking, I really really doubt the new patch will bring that many new players. The day/night cycle is anything but something new, so unless the devs have something else cooking in the pot that we don't know about (and I highly doubt they have), LFS users count won't see a dramatic increase

Funny enough, the content issue can be easily solved by developing official mod tools. That would be great, especially track-wise. The problem of LFS is that it's not getting new users. Well, not legit ones at least. The more time it passes, the more the userbase shrinks.

you subtract what you paid from the other licenses.

e.g. you buy S1

S2 now costs 12£, S3 24£

Little suggestion, buy the S2, don't bother with S3 unless you want to support the devs

Quote from lfsrm :I think the main problem here is visibility, many people don't know about LFS just because it isn't present in their favorite platform/market.

Even with attractiveness (graphics update) or realism (new tyres physics) we'll not attract many new players without some sort of marketing.

Steam has been suggested so many times, yet always rejected without any legit reasons.

To OP, you better off buying rFactor 2, it will go on sale 50% off sooner or later, that's what I'm waiting for. Alas the AI in this game is really bad, and I'm not too good to play online yet.

I have not tried any other sims, even though I'm planning on buying rFactor 2 as soon as it goes back on sale. This being said, you can join a server in like, what, 5 seconds? It is indeed incredible

Excuse me if I speak to him in Italian, but perhaps it can help sort things out.

Ciao, riesci a postare un replay preso dal multigiocatore? Hai provato a vedere magari se nei controlli l'acceleratore viene premuto fino in fondo o robe del genere?

if anything, looks a bit dated rather than ugly. What shaders do you use, Evolution?

Considering it should be "just" a multiplier, it shouldn't be hard to implement. Uhmm
For fuel consumption at least. Perhaps the tyre degradation may be more complicated (or maybe it's just as easy).
But yes, meaningless pitstop should be stopped, either pit because you have to or don't pit at all Big grin
