Thanks! Yup, that pretty much sums it up, most of Reckless and Warlab have moved on as well.

Quote from cargame.nl :So what else... Where is a drifter moving to? I am seriously interested, not a joke. (my phone crashes too.. but it's OK, not from this crazy generation).

Quote from k_badam :Assetto Corsa

Yeah. I don't use my G25 very often any more but when I do it's for AC and ATS/ETS for the most part. Like I said, LFS was good to me for 8 years but it's just time to move on. LFS has been a fantastic platform to improve my video editing, and it's lead up to this point.

Live For Speed has served me well for 8 years, but it's time to move on.
Thanks so much for watching.

Quote from dawesdust_12 :It would take even a skilled programmer weeks/months to become familiar with LFS' code...

In my OP, I suggest this should have been done 4 years ago.
We're 10 months into a year with a developer admitting he hasn't done much.
I think I've made my point.

Quote from dawesdust_12 :None of us are smart enough at tyre physics, car dynamics, programming or deriving algorithms to make LFS BETTER....

Blah, blah. Nonsense. Just because I recommend open source do you think that you or I will be at the forefront of development? Of course not. Those who undertake the task know what they're doing. If they don't, they won't make it. It's survival of the fittest when it comes to a franchise of mods, and the best ones get the most attention. What you said couldn't be further from the truth.

P.S: You make too many assumptions. Of course somebody might invest in a 3rd party company that's pumping out sweet LFS mods. Anyway, like I said earlier, what I'm dreaming is a fantasy. It'll never happen so there's no point arguing it.

Quote from CodeLyoko1 :
IMO if it would go open source:
1- the game would go to shit
2- would be more cheaters/hackers
3- community would go away

Why, why, and why? The development team would multiply tenfold and then some. Individual teams, working on the separate niches of LFS. The community would not go away in the slightest, it would split and multiply. The drifters on the drift mods, racers on the race mods, and so on. All of the current driving physics would be available, why change them? Why would it go to shit? Please, tell me why, because I'm struggling to find anything.

It's not like it really matters. This is a fantasy I'm dreaming. This sim has been long doomed to a specific fate. Development hell.

Quote from dawesdust_12 :Yes, becuase we're all experts on tyre physics (and general car dynamics). Scawen, who has spent the last 10 years of his life (at least) studying tyre physics and associated things, knows nothing about it at all but we will be able to figure it out in a weekend.

Right?

No. LFS shouldn't be open sourced. We all knew what we were paying for from the start. If you didn't understand that, then you should learn to read, and then proceed to read the licence agreement you agreed to when you purchased LFS.

Scawen knows what he's doing. He's like Kimi, except with longer hair and a bicycle instead of Vodka.

Seriously? You're gonna twist my words that hard?
Obviously it would be sorted out in a weekend if it was open source.
Wrong.
I don't expect anything to get done in a weekend buddy, but I don't expect any progress from a few guys that obviously don't care about the proper development of this game. Are you even all that interested in slightly tweaked tyre physics? I for one could really care less. They're good as they are. Add some tracks. Some content. Some proper updates that keep proper players interested. Weather, timecycle, and free-roam areas.
Tyre physics, a track or two. And that's S3? C'mon, where's your aspirations man. This sim won't become amazing because of a couple parameter changes. It needs an overhaul. Badly.

Never once have I had such a deep personal "irk" with development before. I love this sim so much. It deserves so much more. No matter how you see it, LFS is neglected.

P.S: telling us 10 months into a year that you "haven't really made serious progress this year." is sign that open source is exactly what this sim needs.

Just release the freaking open source already. Should have been done 4 years ago.
Let dedicated people actually develop this game.
Senna's MP-4/4 inquiry

I'm struggling to find some hard specs for Senna's MP4/4, I'd imagine at one point this would have been mostly classified information. I'm messing around with the F08 in NTO, love the idea of an H-Shifter in an open wheeler. I really love to find exact specs for a car and using NTO to emulate them as close as possible. As far as I know they were pushing ~900bhp in racing setups, and ~1100+ during practice/qualification, but some exact figures would be awesome.

I'll leave it up to the great knowledge of the LFS community to fill this gap, and any information is greatly appreciated. Here's what I've got so far:

1494cc V6
Turbocharged 2.5 Bar
H-pattern gearbox
540kg dry
900-1100 hp?
Torque? Power curves? Rev limit? Anything else worth mentioning?

Also- if you would like the view to be a fixed axis to your car, simply go into your "Custom View" in your Options Menu. From there you can edit the X, Y, Z, Pitch, Rotate, etc. to achieve the shot you have visualized. Good luck!

Quote from Ni-san :What about XR6? Like XRT, but with inline 6 engine. Good for big drifts, and it's pretty fast, yet not a GTR like XRR so it's more fun to drive too.

An improved version of RB4 that's further tuned to around 276-300 horsepowers and with a more durable clutch.

Maybe an FXG or something? Like FXO but without turbo, a bit lighter on the front and no spoiler. (like it looked in S1)

Excellent ideas. I can't believe I never thought of the XR6 myself. An XR chassis that can keep up with an FZ5. I like it.

I don't care when, I'm just intrigued whether or not some rudimentary weather will come to this game? Dynamic track surfaces, simulated rain, snow and freezing rain, and dynamic weather are a list of things that I don't believe are even required yet.
A simple slick surface as if it had "just rained" would even suffice.

I like your textures and it was a nice attempt. However if you plan to continue drifting I suggest working on your line and extending the drifts through the whole corner. From the outside of the entry, to the inside of the apex, to the outside of the exit, just like a racing line.

I like your setup man. You have good skills for a beginner, drift how you like where you like.

Love the haters.

Quote from Omar1 :nice vid lazlow! its sub , just saw your air ride vid aswell, we should make one together, cruising, pulls, scraping, you know

Hell yeah bro! ;D the air ride itself isn't portrayed well over latency but we'll have to do a cruise video soon- you're totally invited ;P

Quote from Bose321 :Yeah I meant visual effects. There is no need for glitters and such, I'm not a fan of that either. But a some colour management and/or vignetting would make it look better IMO.

You make a good point, I do want to experiment playing with colour/brightness settings and whatnot. Thanks for the suggestion!

Quote from Danas :As usual a slowmotion vid with dnb. So rare to find these days. And the camera angles were so unusual!

I'm not about to get into a genre debate with you, so I won't even start.

I can't help but sense an air sarcasm in your post, however it's so difficult to sense via text I'm not even going to bother to attempt to understand the context.

If you have some constructive criticism maybe try again?

thanks for the comment.. I guess?

Quote from Bose321 :The camera work is really sloppy tbh. It's not smooth and the angles kinda hides the actual close ups of drifting IMO.

A little editing also wouldn't be bad I guess.

Thanks for your words!

Yeah- I've heard there's programs out there that help smooth the camerawork in LFS- I'll have to check that out.

As for the editing- you watched the video didn't you? Without the editing the video wouldn't exist- so I'll suppose you're referring to visual effects. These I like to leave out of my videos 'cause it's all fake garnish. Just like glitter, there's no point in it and it accomplishes very little. I would prefer a pure, uncut video of legitimate, skilled action, as opposed to some n00b driving around the track with cool effects, but that's just me.

I think if it showed your total kms, it'd be pointless. there's a command for that /w ds
however. If there was a unique odometer for each individual car, that would be cool. Then you could say "I've driven 15,000kms in the XRT"
