You're so mad you're moaning on 2 forums Never spotted the connection before.
As I said on the other forum, I understand the idea behind it but I disagree with it's implimentation. It does amuse me that you can kill your friend over and over and over again and all is good, destroy his car and its banhammer time! I better behave as I think I have had the final warning text about being a bad sport.
It is the voyager probe, if memory serves voyager 1 went to look at a moon but to do this it had to leave the plane of our solar system whereas voyager 2 carried on it's 'normal' journey and I think it is voyager 2 which is reaching the edge of solar system. The moon though isn't moving away fast enough to really be noticable, again if memory serves it is something like an inch (2.5 cm) per year so for any noticable difference in diameter from earch would take too long to be noticable. One thing that does effect the apparent size of the moon is the time of year due to the atmosphere acting as a lens so it can appear the moon is smaller (or bigger) than on another day.
Ofcourse it is about patience, I agree that the game does become stagnant with things staying the same however everything else you mention is basically summed up by people wanting updates (even if smaller ones) more regularly - how can that not be taken as people don't have the patience to wait for a bigger update?
As I said I agree about the stagnation if things stay the same but then when you consider that:
- We are spoilt really as a forum that we do have as much direct contact with the devs as we do. I am sure you will disagree with this but just compare to other game developers of indie games nevermind mainstream ones.
- You bought the game and since then have received updates and new content. I agree not much but it was still free, we don't have a right to demand more content.
- We are simply players of a game, the customer. You can argue as much as you like about good business practice, dwindling player numbers etc. they know this and maybe the devs read the comments and don't reply or simply don't read them but, like above, we don't have right to be answered.
- Smaller content updates often instead of bigger ones sporadically? Again not our game, not our choice.
I suppose it comes down to that you have expressed your opinion on how the devs should of been working and how they should proceed. It is your opinion though, personally I would rather wait 4 years (maybe 5, 6 etc.) for a big physics update (and anything else we don't know about) instead of some smaller updates that might add content but don't actually improve the game.
Has no one got any patience anymore? You paid £24 and got the game as is, all the updates after that are a bonus. Ofcourse I would like the new physics and content but, as the saying goes, good things come to those who wait.
All we should say is that to those who joined around the announcement for vws and rockingham - Welcome to LFS, an indie game that takes time. Just be patient and you will get the updates. For those who have been around a long time surely already know what the LFS development is like so why moan.
I think alot of people have become lurkers, I know I certainly have. I turn on lfs once in a while but rarely find a pick up race combo I want to do. Spend most of my LFS time browsing here, racing section or off topic.
I like the viedo, it was a good tribute and showed the reasons why people did love him as a racing driver and why he is still revered to this day.
On the subject though of what happened during his career I think it comes simply to what a driver does on and off the track can tarnish and diminish their reputation however it does not effect the love people have to see them race. Yes Senna did things wrong and many questionable things, tried to engineer situation in teams etc. but on his day he was a phenominal and an amazing driver and that is all that should matter.
There is a road near me that through heavy rain looks like that however I know the road and know that the water is only ever about a foot deep so no problem. With the colour of that water and no obvious signs of how deep it is I wouldn't even try it.
Again wouldn't be sure of it but in this picture it looks like you would be able to walk upto the actual water and see how deep it is and assess if you could drive through it.
Back to the original story though, without knowing why the driver tried to drive though it is hard to say for definate whether it was idiotic or not. Maybe they knew the road and have been through it a million times before without incident and thought it would be ok this time too even with the water deeper than normal. While even that would have an element of stupidity it would be less in my mind than if they, for example, just blindly followed the sat nav.

I have no clue to the artist but quite a good song If you think it sounds German or Scandinavian have you tried the lyrics in other languanges as it could just be they sang in English for an English audience though it originally isn't in English
Hellaflush really is the continuation of the modified dubs since then have been 'stanced' for a long time. Personally though some of it looks horrible but occasionally there is some nice looking cars come out of it. Though they do do it wrong function should always be more important than form. While stance cars look good sitting in a car park I would rather have a car you could drive quickly down a little b road without worry of it getting beached on the first piece of sand you try to drive over.
You are correct in everything you say, it does seem equqlly as fashionable to hate things as much as it is to like them. I am happy for anyone to post their own opinion in here and say what they think and why, not everyone is going to love it and a discussion then could be had. To just come in and say it sucks is pointless, guess I just don't see the fun in trolling.
I know I shouldn't take the bait but - I get that it fashionable to bash COD but why do people specifically come in to a thread on it just to say its sh*t and people shouldn't buy it. Something that may appear to be shocking here, and I am sorry that I am not breaking this gently, people have different tastes and like different things You guys don't like COD we get it, so the simple answer is don't buy it and leave us in peace to play it and talk about without having to read past post after post of the repetiticious drivel of it looks the same, you bought a map pack, COD sucks. As much as I know Battlefield to be a better FPS I have given previous ones chance but I have never got into the game like I have the cod series, I don't enjoy playing battlefield and I do enjoy playing cod so money well spent in my opinion.
Also £50 is a bit steep, between the discount offers and buy something get cod cheap I don't know many people that paid much over £30 for MW3 and when you work it out like that it is effectively the cost of a map pack (considering it is a campaign, survival mode, 16 maps) so renders that point dead in the water.
I agree with Franky.S though, if the COD franchise changes too drastically in one go it would alienate people who play it. People may complain about one part or another of the game but the fact is the people who play it, play it because they like how the game is now. So it isn’t too far to imagine that if the game was really different that the people who play now wouldn’t play it anymore. Personally though, campaign so far is typical cod which is set pieces and enjoyable. Online, there is a few problems with it but nothing to major and I am enjoying it. The only thing that is annoying me is that elite is down, can’t believe they underestimated the number of people trying to access it.
