Interesting enough, the last race is not visible in lfsworld online race results.

Such interesting experience. First 30 laps taking care of tyre temps, last 20 laps taking care of tyre wear. Very intense one and the grass was so close all the time.

Quote from Ayoub2016 :RIP

there was actually two XRG's flipping in tandem, but the later one spectated immediately (its displayed in the gif for only a fraction of second)

The whole race ended too fast. It was getting really hilarious with all the crashes and safety cars.

That was actually more entertaining what I expected. I did some really noob mistakes like going wide at critical time, or lifting too much and losing draft. Anyway, great experience, and would love to have such races more. I am surprised Rony did not announce how many drivers went under WR Big grin

Ok my bad, so the "sign up" button/link/whatever could show up in that specific list after the "next race" column.


Edit: very happy to see everyone putting their events in race calendar.

Quote from Scawen :OK, I've tweeted it.

The only thing is, 'leagues' seems to me to sound like something you have to sign up to and commit to a series of races.

But, going by the names only, the page does seem to list events that aren't really leagues as such. Maybe it needs a bit more information so users can see if it's an event you need to sign up to, or a series of races, or a server you can join freely.

The sign up information (wich type of signup or signup at all) is one parameter in a "Season". What if we had an "Ongoing Seasons" page? It would list all ongoing seasons of any league. In the columns you could find more info like "league", "sign up type" and maybe even the Season's description.

Quote from Rejekt :Maybe some in-game short list (on the front page) of upcoming league races within a couple of days would help? I bet most players don't visit the forums or some external LFS sites that often, and beginners probably don't even know where to look at. The basic information for each entry could be automatically created from racing calendar/league list?

Something like:

Upcoming league races:
18.6 [local time] RTFR FZR@RO10 S3 [link to server][link to forum/racing calendar]
20.6 [local time] FM GTI XRG@AS4 S2 -""-

This would make the game feel more alive and "serious" and would create an additional incentive for organizers to list their events.

Thumbs up why this has not been suggested before?

That thing that is above the server list. That no-one uses. Is there anyone who has ever used that chat?

Why not make it similar to rFactor chat: It opens automatically when you go to the server list. Meaning everyone who is browsing the list, is also visible in the chat. You can immediately see other people searching for fun and you can instantly chat with them.

Not all leagues do use LFS race calendar. I don't know why.

But nowadays it is like that. Also in other sims you need to put effort to find all the leagues and communities spread around the internet. Too much opportunties, too much information. And everyone wanting everything quickly without efforts, this is the world today.

When I organized 9397 Racing events some months ago, I spammed all channels around internet with my posters, still there was people visiting my server and they didn't know anything about my events. Nowadays people don't bother to find out. We are a world of greedy zombies chilling around half sleepy and half awake.

But I agree that the Leagues section needs cleaning.

The "problem" mentioned by NumberTwo is also real. Tho I would not call it a problem, its just a fact. As a new player its difficult to join a league with experienced drivers. But this is also the same in all simulators. What can do? Moderated demo servers are a fantastic thing in LFS, something you don't see in other sims.

But who would create racing series for beginners? Who have motivation for that? And what kind of rules could tell who can join such serie? Would be nice if SimRacingSystem supports LFS. But it doesn't organize even AMS/rF2 events it supports them. Because lack of participants. (Hmm I think MRc organized some demo events...respect!)

I think the current situation of LFS user base is much better that it could be. No place to cry. LFS could be dead and buried years ago, but is it not. Lets enjoy it. Btw tonight there is LX6 event at South City.

Quote from Spiiiky :that helicopter camera looks amazing :o

I agree! However it doesn't give the big picture about the curved straight. In that shots it gives an impression that the pink car goes on the yellow one. If the straight was absolutely straight, that would be true. But in that specific case no-one takes such driving line that yellow car took. But time to let this case in history and look forward Smile

Nice report again Nova! I'm sure these kind of reports raise the interest to the series. And I know it takes time to write such ones. The MPR was great to watch from the start to the end. Last lap fight for podium positions was epic! And GT4 was once again running that hilarious setup, I laughed so hard while watching it, because he drove it really well and did serious job behind the wheel xD.

Quote from UnknownMaster21 :Yes! Anything will do! As long as variation is "unlimited", it would be good to go! Perhaps some kind of "randomness" would be a good one! Who knows.

EDIT: Something slow, fast, jumpy, sharpy, slumpy, funny, boring, stupid, hilarious, insane, hard, difficult, ez, autorun, random, airflowing, old, new, unique, standard, common, uncommon, wise, limited, unlimited or anything between with those.

Have you seen the next track (lmaoring) that is loaded on the server? Made some laps yesterday, its amazing and so fun with XRG. It doesn't look special at all, but when you drive it, its really juicy.

Quote from texxxas :in that place on the track it was a stupid move

Fully agree with this

Quote from texxxas :Of course it was a racing incident and no one should have been penalised.

I don't see any racing incident there, just stubborn attitude to "race" by pushing on others lane. Just don't get how this happen by a league member. But wasn't so surprised of it after all, actually was expecting something to happen already in t1.

Maybe not worth penalty, but at least a warning.

Quote from texxxas :
was easier for him to avoid that crash

Eh...he was the only that could have avoid it because he caused it Big grin If I was not there, he would have choosed the natural racing line pointing towards right side, but as Nova said, he tried to defend something that he was already lost. And on top of that, after the race he thanked me for "squeezing him".

Reporting Azyer (AzyerGames) for dangerous driving on lap 5 (mpr 7:34), he having plenty of space, tries to squeeze me ending up sideways. Mpr shows it all; his wheel was wobbling right and left while the track was straight.

In case it was a lag hit, I attach here my mpr which shows the sequence from my point of view (1) pushed by Azyer into wall 2) bounce from wall back to Azyer

Quote from Lulu420 :Hey everyone, looking for one hell of a beginner set up can anyone help? Right now I'm running between 1:42 and 1:50 would like to get that time down.

Hi bro and welcome. Just take one setup at lfs.net/files/setups. I think I was at the same time with you at AA|Blackwood recently. I noticed you was not familiar with the track, and your driving lines were far from optimal. Begin with spectating faster drivers from cockpit and watch their braking points and driving lines. You were using only 60% of the track width in the corners. Good luck!
