it was a giggle to see the birthday list bigger than current active user list. I did a double take to make the two weren't swapped around. lol Happy Birthday to you all.

Repeat after me, in with the good air, out with the bad. k now relax. It might take a bit to get adjusted to it but you'll do fine. Just don't let the little things frustrate you. If you can't work something out... then ask someone for help. There's loads of nice people in lfs that are willing to help you learn.

I hope you change your mind and give it another go. You won't regret it.

Quote from NotAnIllusion :My issue with cruising (and other sorts of servers too, as well as drifting, albeit to a slightly lesser extent) servers is that LFS is officially an "Online Racing Simulation". Neither cruising nor drifting are racing imo, so they don't 'belong' in LFS as per what it's touted to be. Having said that, both are clearly here to stay, and tbh I prefer that LFS accommodates them because as Banshee so aptly described, people who don't want to play ball would be far more rampant on all servers.

In the future I fully expect to see greyhounds (dogs, not buses) and horses in LFS too. After all, they have more in common with racing than cruise servers.

I'd rather see the buses myself, although they'd probably be driven on the oval track or WE1 mainly. It'd be a mess trying to get them around the corners on South City Town. The dogs would probably be more suited for the cruise servers too as people there would have time to take care of them.

Quote from dude56 :Cruise servers now are just a bunch of dumb stoners sitting around talking about weed, and crashing into walls. Meanwhile, people that actually try to hotlap or whatever end up getting wrecked by barriers or dumb stoners, and fined because of the stupid insim, and the admins won't refund anyone because of some stupid technicalities.

Want to speed? Automatically lose money. Drive the wrong way? Automatically lose money. Cops don't chase you now; they kick you. The fun has gone. It's one big dumb chatroom.

lol well I'm far from being a stoner so not _everyone_ on cruise servers is one. I really don't see why people have a problem with the servers. It's just another form of entertainment... nothing more... nothing less. If you don't like them then don't go to them.

If you want to hotlap... go on a race server. Like ALL servers... the cruise servers have their rules. If you don't want to follow them... then why go? If you don't follow the rules... then don't whine about getting kicked or banned.

Like I've said so many times before... the wonderful thing about Live For Speed, is there's something for everyone regardless of age or driving style. You have the hardcore aliens, league racers, casual racers, drifters, cruisers, hotlappers and many others. I remember when I first started with LFS... people complained about all the 'hotlappers' and what a waste of time it was.

You can't please everyone all of the time... but Live For Speed is getting there. In the world of LFS there are lots of subcultures... cruising just happens to be one of them.

Quote from Arrow. :Sorry for closing the other thread on ya
This is a very good question, I think drivers should be able to rejoin before lap 1 if they time out but wont the leader has completed the a lap. However the rules state you cannot rejoin and you cannot start the race from pit lane, something to look into. So i dont know why that driver was allowed to rejoin.

aw no worries about closing it. If you haven't learned yet, you will. You really can't hush up a female when she wants to speak her mind.

In all seriousness though.. I sent apologies to Danowat and N I K I because I didn't want them to think I was picking on them. One thing I pointed out to N I K I in my PM was that I did think it was nice he let Dan rejoin... but what happens if next round someone else was put in the same situation needing to reboot, rejoin the server and race before lap 1 was finished but the Admin doesn't allow it?

You answered my question I think. lol I know you stay on top of things so we'll see how things go next round.

okay I'll talk here.

@ Clownpaint : no he said he was having comp problems and needed to reboot. It wasn't anything to do with server lag at that time. The lag came later.

I'm not trying to pick on anyone... I just want to know when is it okay and when it's not okay to leave a server and rejoin again, then rejoin a race.

If someone times out and is able to rejoin before lap 1 is done... is he allowed to race? At what point is it too late to rejoin a race?

Quote from Clownpaint :The decision to let Dan race was made by both admins. Niki was the one who had to state it in the chat though.

Who did or didn't say it was okay wasn't why I asked my question. I was only curious if people were allowed to join the server after the race has already started _and_ join the race. If they are, under what circumstances are they?

Quote from N I K I :in my point of view he just started race from pits, rest of field was still in lap 1!

Fair play... so if someone times out before lap 1 is finished... they may rejoin the server and race? At which point is it okay or not okay to do it?

Quote from rc10racer :Well that i a big no no then because that is not allowed

k thx for clearing that up

Quote from rc10racer :I think that should be ok but i would let that one go if he was in the end screen and the gird was not already formed because that could happen to any of us even your own team.


k I understand. I know I hold up casual races on my servers to allow it.. but wasn't sure if they allowed it during league races.
Quote from danowat :I think we (Adaptive) are just about done with BOTT for this season..........

aww please don't quit. Things get a bit rough but over all BOTT is doing well. I was only curious why N I K I was allowing some of the things he did.

Quote from rc10racer :There are 2 admins on there so someone must of seen that problem.

N I K I gave permission for the driver to join the race after it already started. I was only curious if that was allowed and also the holding up of the race for the reboot. I'll leave it for now so we can enjoy the rest of the races

Yea it's me again and sorry if this is titled wrong. Just curious, is it customary to hold up a race start in leagues while a driver reboots his comp and force everyone else to lag lap a 2nd time? Also once a race starts I thought people aren't allowed to rejoin the server and race.

Quote from dadge :i don't understand why you feel lots of people are getting angry over this,

lol read all the posts on the forum since it was released. Lots of people really get angry about it. Just because someone chooses to use it, doesn't make them stupid, morons or anything close. It's just a personal preference, nothing more.

Quote from dadge :tell that to the guy who won the bmw. the platform on which people use to race on is irrelevant, just because real people compete in a virtual environment, doesn't mean that the races are not real (in a sense). but hey you made the dude, so of course you will get all defensive over it.
but back to the point. when you race side by side with another player (and you look beside you to see where he is) you don't see harnesses or fire extinguishers, but you do see their heads.

lol this is always so funny to read. Ian only made it easier for people to edit driver attire. The option was always there, allowed by the devs. It was easier to make the app to help people out than to keep explaining over and over how to edit them with a hex editer

He provided a service for those who were requesting it at the time. It's fine if people choose not to like it, but my goodness... the anger people show at those who do is a bit over the top don't you think? lol If admins choose to not allow it on their servers... that's fine.. their house, their rules, and I'd support them 110% on that.

Like I've said since I was first introduced to LFS. one of the best things about it is there's something for everyone regardless of age, driving styles/abilities and interests

feel free to remove this. I wasn't sure where to post atm. In Grid 2, why was [KR]JICA82 allowed to rejoin the server during the race and join the race when dmwright was told he wasn't allowed and ended up leaving the server?

Quote from BBO@BSR :I don't think Victor will do it because,
I speculate on this, the reason for him trying to delete everything is: He got an "old" S2 license yesterday from somebody.

he only wants to clear all stats including fuel usage and miles driven so he can get an accurate count of his driving. It's not to get rid of a bad rep the nick has because there isn't one.

Quote from obsolum :See that's exactly what people mean when they say that you not only get a license, you get everything that comes with it, when you buy/get a license from another user. You get the reputation, the statistics, the bans (if there are),... the whole package.

AFAIK you can't clear LFSW stats.

You really shouldn't 'joke' like you did in the other thread, saying the Mithras nick had been banned from all the popular servers because not everyone bothers to read every post in a thread to see you admit it was a joke in another post or bother to highlight to see you say you were joking written in white. . They'll see ones like you put and when they see that nick join their server they'll automatically want to ban it because they think the driver is trouble. I've known the original Mithras for a few years now and he's a fair, fast, clean driver.
