OMG, can't you read? This thread is for bug reports ONLY.
Answer to your question: YES it's the very final version, nothing is going to be changed, unless some major bugs will be found. And please don't post a word in this thread again. Scawen is working hard and you're disturbing him with every your useless post.
Reinstall the whole LFS (Install it elsewhere on your system and update it to Y30), because it seems you're the only one having this problem, so it must be your system's fault. Perhaps corrupt install or something like that.
Who knows, perhaps Eric has already made like four or five tracks and five or six new cars for upcoming S3. We should not forget that S2 is pretty much finished and in my opinion we shouldn't expect much before S3 is out.
Comparing LFS to anything else is pretty much pointless to me. I'm not interested in games at all. I don't play any other game, because that they all do feel like games, but LFS doesn't. It's different to everything else, Scawen and his team mates has got a way different understanding of what the word simulation means and this is pretty much the same understanding as I have. I fully understand Scawen, I wish he had more time for LFS and perhaps a bigger team, but well, it's his own project and everything is up to him.
The slow developing process is painful for many of you as I can see, but hey, other games don't have such a thing at all. It's like 1) I'm out 2) buy me 3) be happy for a month or so 4) bye bye. LFS is different, here you're a part of process and I guess this makes many of us so impatient. For me it's a big pleasure to know, that something is still ahead of me. Sometimes waiting itself is more exciting than the thing you been waiting for. However, wanting for more and more is not that bad I guess, it's natural I believe .
However, LFS is all about racing, you shouldn't forget that. Patches are just big bonuses, that makes this fantastic simulator even more realistic and more exciting. We might have got more during all these years, but we have also might got less. One thing is for sure, there will never be enough for everyone doesn't matter how much we get .
Hopefully S2 is going to be finished soon as the last letter of alphabet is going to be used for upcoming patch Z after which we may get the Final version of LFS S2 :hyper:. After that Scawen should start working on S3 if he hasn't already . It's not a secret that community expects dynamic weather, improved damage, new tracks, cars and a lot of new stuff in S3 .
