It looks a crap ton better than ANY other racing game/sim has had night lighting I've seen. It's a great start, and If we had a release date I'd already be planning on bringing up a 12 or 24 hour endurance race event or series with 6, 12, 24 hour races.
Of course, testing is needed to make sure there's no issues; but having the sky not change isn't an issue to me...if the light from the sun goes below the horizon like it really does, and perhaps even program in moon phase, that will bring the immersion. Westhill, Kyoto, Fern Bay would be largely pitch black with no nearby major town causing lighting pollution in the night sky to reflect back down, only lights installed at or near the track would give vision points. The lights already on the start tree is a good start for the flag lights...projecting the light output is a big issue I'm sure.
Great work so far, can't wait to see if this becomes a reality to us end users!
Those start light objects are from the layout being one used for an NDR event (the server has layouts from all NDR events available to it) - which we have controllable via insim when we run SCs and such. I don't think in any of the events run with them, I'd ever heard of anyone hitting them and causing them to land on the circuit. I'll audit the layout to test this case now I suppose!
I've got the Open Endurance Cup server up now; with Airio running. It's using the restrictions from last year, I know Thilo is analyzing data to see if any tweaks can be made. There's no password on the server, you'll find it under the same name as the league, it's on version 0.6T.
I’m again providing the server for OEC Four, and I’ll have it up in the next few days. I’m likely going to switch from Airio to Lapper again, since Airio isn’t supported and although a great application, might well be long in the tooth. I’ll be assessing that option this weekend. I’ll post again when the server goes live!
New Dimension Racing still exist, we've done a small number of events in the last years. Internally, we're discussing resurrecting, hoping to bring stuff back to life sooner rather than later (and hopefully in line with these updates coming to the public).
I'm loving the look of Aston with this redo, but I'm also curious of the final layout of the old nearly 180 at the north end of the circuit. The Grand Touring cut between the main pit straight and the north pit straight has been tightened. I'm sure I'll fall out of my chair when we see what work is done to Kyoto, and will have a heart attack when we see Fern Bay!
My wife has been fine with me doing the few we’ve done lately, I’ve just not had the satisfaction of it being worth. Been working on internal things, website coding, results redoing.
Oh, and the jump from PHP 5 to PHP 7 has caused tracker errors, so trying to sort that out, too. I’m highly keen to keep a presence in LFS, just try to time events to get peak involvement. The LFSCART Voucher event, the iTCC resurrection, and the TBOC Special all went well from what I saw.
I have a feeling that there’s a possible community of newer users who don’t have a place to learn to race, but I’m not sure it’s enough to do usual leagues - back to simple leagues like our LFS Beginner’s Cup, LX Challenge, MiniFBM, TBOC.
If I can make the NDR website do most of the bureaucratic work (results, points, entry, password access, etc), I can do more. The biggest issue is the manual time. Same for if we ran anything in rFactor 2 or Automobilista, for example.
If your friend you referred to here had his demo account banned from the forum for posting about licensed content, and has since purchased a license, either PM me his name or send an email to the developers, and we will unban if we confirm he has purchased.
Bans and unban requests are usually not discussed in open forum, and are usually handled in private. I'm not going to get into details of who we ban and unban and for what reasons here.
If you have any further questions, please contact me or the developers directly.
I would not say I'm too lazy . Plus, this year, the traditional weekend for the 500, I will be at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course flagging some open wheel racing (USF4, Formula Atlantic, F2000,F1600), but if I can assemble a team we may try the insanity again

What Jared is referring to is an error in the initial publication, where the rule stated that the sprint race would have a "05 minute time limit" - this has been corrected to the intended 25 minute time limit.
