Quote from molocco :yesterday i spent the whole day playing some different racing games / simulators, and even if they all were fun, the change in immersion and feeling when i finally switched to lfs was really astounding!

it was unbelievable how much smoother it ran and how much more the ffb could convince me to be in a real car. the ability to judge and react based on whats visible on the screen and what i feel thru my wheel is so much better than in all the other games. also the sensation of speed and how good one can find the apex in any corner is much better than in everything else i played.

also like one could see in the discussions on 3d - it is not always the best to simulate the reality as close as possible, because there are still some aspects missing that could not be simulated as well. in that case it is best practice to simulate the "best immersion of reality", because it is enough to convince the players mind and must not do more. in 3d for instance there will always be the problem of a fixed distance from the players eyes to the screen and this will only be overcome when a freefield projection technology is invented that really can project objects at different distances. and even then not everybody will have a big enough room for that - so it will probably stay at the current level of simulating a 3d world on a 2d screen. so some aspects of the sim always have to cut corners because of the consumers ability to playback those aspects. (for instance many of us now have wheels with ffb, but not so many of us have 6dof racingseats so the ability of lfs to visually simulate g-forces are a good compromise in that area)

so thank you @scavier for this great game and do not be so hard on your self - simulating real world physics might be the ultimative goal, but even if the new physics are just elaborate estimations they will be the best in sim world, because the actual physics of the game "as it is today" are already the best! so anything you make better from now on will just be "icing on the cake"!

peace, mo

Still here !! I miss the time when we were fighting on rallycross demo servers on S1 and the begin of S2... (Nettika and Airattack servers if my memory is good).

Who remember names like BMW M5, The Stig, X-Asus, Sponk, ...?
And teams like FBUT, JointStars, Magic Turtles (not so far from now for that one )

I first played LFS in summer 2002, then only join the forum in 2005 !
This post bring me some nice memories

Btw, as always, sorry for my bad english

Quote from cargame.nl :Huh? Trackmania?

Did they changed something? In the first version its impossible to collide with each other because other players act like ghost cars

.

That's what i say, we don't need that system in LFS, an neither those collisions warning systems...

P.S: Damn, my english goes bad since CTRA is down... I don't speak in english anymore because i almost stop playing lfs since the dead of CTRA

Quote from Torben :Why was that auto-spectate feature invented? I think it came from the attitude that started to emerge on the servers.

Scenario a) Driver A is spinning. He thinks: "Darn, spinning, darn wall coming closer, darn, impact. Keep standing still until following drivers can pass the crash site safely. Hm.. I have serious damage, but I can make it back to the pits. .. Ok, wait until the track is free,....., alright, now I can re-enter the track." Driver A crawls back on track, stays off the racing line and crawls back to pits for repairs.

Scenario b) Driver A is spinning. He thinks: "Darn, spinning, darn wall coming closer, darn, impact. Hm, well I have serious damage, but the car still somewhat moves, lets get back to racing." Driver A crawls back on track and *boom*, a car approaching slams into him.


Which scenario do you think lead to the invention of auto-spectate? And which scenario is more likely to happen on public servers..

I honestly think it's our own (the racers) fault that the servers are what they are. No admin has the nerves to keep arguing with everyone about who's fault it was, who spun, who didn't slow down despite the yellow flag etc..
It seemed nobody cares about general racing/race track rules anymore. So mechanisms had to be invented that made dealing with this easier..

So what about the Trackmania colision system? Do we need this in LFS?

Seriously, LFS is a simulation, if you see a Yellow flag warning message, you just need to be prepared to slow down or stop your car, like IRL...

Quote from Be2K :Its not a GmbH ist a AG and i cant found any information about LFS or the VWS for LFS here in our intranet by VW in Wolfsburg
And i can promise you there is no pressure on Scawen from here. Our CarCity dont have a Car simulator or anything else so its not nessesary to put the VWS closely to the reality.

Sorry about GmbH - AG stuff...
Thanks for the answer.

I have a question ... Does Volkswagen GmbH puts the pressure on the car in the game to be perfect and / or to make it available as soon as possible? Or is it that developers are free from that?

Sorry about my bad english, i hope you understand what i mean... Google translate
