As far as the competitive league community goes, it has been gone for years already.

Although it has been receiving really nice updates, the pace of those updates and new content being released have been painfully slow.

They released 1 single track for more than 10 years. No new cars for more than a decade.
It's very sad because racing here used to be insanely good and very competitive, lots of fun. But eventually other sims stepped up their game and teams/players gradually migrated to them.

As the simracing scene grew up a lot over the last few years LFS barely changed, stagnant I should say.
So doesn't surprise me you're seeing the cruise servers being the only ones being full 90% of the time and rarely having a public racing server being full, let alone multiple ones like it used to be.

I used to have some hope about LFS coming back again as one of the main racing simulators were you can compete but I highly (highly) doubt it at this point.

Damn it, sorry Deko for not letting you know I wouldn't be able to race on time.
I've been unexpectedly busy yesterday and today and I couldn't attend this race. (I really wanted it Frown)

Thanks for making this event tho, keeping NDR alive and wish you all a happy new year.

You are definitely not. You are the best stunt man the simracing world has ever seen!

We're getting a collectable! Big grin

Scirocco can now rest in peace alongside LFS.

This is sad.

LFS community has gotten completely down by the devs not providing what the community wanted because "We want to run this way, no matter what!". No competitive racing anymore (with VERY, VERY few exceptions!), and now even cruise servers are getting attacked.

LFS is dead.


Just sad. Scavier will need to pull some set of miracles to get LFS to where it was. In other words, never. Now it's too late. LFS still is probably the best online racing platform available right now, as a base.
And the stubbornness of the devs have completely ruined it.

Rip LFS. Frown

The fact that most people voted NO in this pool makes me cringe so hard.

Quote from Scawen :I have also noticed that many of the modern sim community members have never heard of LFS. And some don't think it is even possible to try it because it is not on Steam, and the thought of using an installer just makes them say "WTF" and that seems very strange to me.

We can't afford advertising so as ever before we will have to rely on word of mouth (or word of text). There was a quiet time in development (probably inevitable after many years of hard work) but we are really working hard again now to produce more content and update the code. So I believe in time it will pick up again and we are making our best efforts to make that happen. But no matter what we do, it will only spread if the community tells people about it.

I don't want to be rude but when I read that it looked like you went to an island for like a decade, away from what is going on with the game industry.
Steam (and Origin) has been around for few years already and more and more people are using specially Steam to play their games, it has it's own social network itself where you can see which games your friends are playing, what more advertisement do you want?
How do you think games like Rocket League, Dota and even CS:GO got so popular?

Hell, almost all racing sims already joined Steam.. except LFS.

It could well be the next big step for LFS before a proper S3 release Wink

Quote from RaZMorocco :Hey, just logged on to check some racing servers, all i find is cruise and drift, where the hell are the actual racing servers?

You can still find some events like Fox Friday at the Fragmaster server.

Or cargame.nl ofc for random car class racing.

tom0900060, it's not just an oval track, it's quite a bit more than that.
I will rather wait and see what Scawen will say about the next batch of content they are working on now, as he said, then we'll see. I don't want to spend 16 or 17 euros on a license which I have no ideia how long it will take the devs to release more stuff.

Quote from cargame.nl :Lol, in fact racingdepartment, this forum... Where you need to pay just to be on the forum...

What are you talking about? Dave, stop being silly pls. That's not true.

Also, what's so wrong with a community asking Kunos or any other company to improve something on their software/whatever else for the good of everybody??
Stop being such a salty dick around here. It looks like you are doing this as a hobby or something.
You are not helping anybody by having such attitudes.


By the way, it's racedepartment, not racingdepartment lol

Yeah, I went to cargame.nl S2 a while ago only to find out that Saturday now runs multi class.
Well, it was kinda disappointing, since saturday specially was by far the most fun racing you could have in cargame.nl, even more than Formula BMW days.

But it's Dave's server, he does what he wants with it.

Quote from OTone :there's basically no one interested in even opening LFS anymore.

Mwoah..

Dave, I for one definitely do not spend all my time in front of the PC playing games and moaning all day. But that doesn't mean I'm wrong in showing my concerns about the future of LFS.
If I am making these posts it's because I actually care about this game. I see the potential in it. I don't care if rFactor 2 has official tools for modders now. I'm not interested whether rFactor 2 dies today or in 10 years (if you catch my drift). I never liked it that much anyway. (Although I know it's a very nice sim for what it is)
And, once again, it's a shame that LFS is dead as it is now. You can barely find a public racing server with people except the Demo ones.

Do you enjoy joining a server without anyone? I don't think so.

Enjoy ya vacations ya scrubbynoob <3
