Probably because they were given the chance and to have publicity and air time on TV for free. Would be stupid to turn down such a great opportunity to promote LFS. Not to mention all the information which can be put in use in development.
So who, had dreams about the patch last night? Terrible what LFS does for you.
Back to random speculations. I guess the latest day it could come out would be 21st, being Friday and all. And could be that the devs are delaying the release to get some time off, because once it's released they are following the forums and finding and fixing issues people might find. That is stressful, not to mention how much fuzz and traffic a big patch usually creates. All hell will brake loose over here, and they might to need to recharge their batteries.
@JTbo Well, it is not free if you have to be pedantic about it, we still have to get loans and students are poor as hell because it's made illegal to do work. But it's still far less expensive. And because the education of future generations is for good for everybody, it's good everyone shares the cost. Besides, they will eventually be paying their education by doing work and paying their taxes.
It is free for the students. So anyone smart enough who is bothered, can have education and it doesn't matter if your parents are not that wealthy. Obviously extra money helps, but that is normal in life. But in US the level of education you can have is largely bound to money your parents have made.
Well, I wish I actually could complain going to school. Got to wait to next autumn to start my university studies. I really wanted to start studying economics when I actually remembered stuff from school, but the stupid compulsory service starting in January keeps me away from school for over a year now. And only because I was born with a penis.
Technically I don't speak English, and I'm referred as Kimi in teamspeak, but here you go.
"This is Scawen Roberts, programmer of Live for Speed. This short video is about my test day in real Formula BMW, which we've resently added in our racing simulation. The car I drove is owned by Fortec Motorsport, where we vent the day before to test to get my seat fitted. I had to sit on a black plastic bag like a bin liner (??) and they poured chemicals in to the bag which then expanded around me, making a foam seat. There's my son Leo. On the right you see James Marshall, who is running V1 Championship which will be launched next year and shown TV. V1 will be looking for a racing driver trough series of tests, including LFS. My test day was held at Brunghinton (??) proving ground, this was my in a single seater. It's a tight squeeze getting in to the car. Here I am about to pull away for the first time. It took a few laps to get used to the track, and realize I could take the main left bend at full speed because of the downforce. I was trying to go fast as possible, to make most of my day. As you can see, I pass my limits on couple of corners. The long straight was quite a relief after the sequence of mainly right turns. And coming up you see my first crash. Luckily the front wing is being re-attached so I could continue (not sure about this part, lots of noises there). And that was one of two high speed spins. It really was an exciting day and a great experience. I was very worn out by the end of the day, mainly in the arms after about 100 laps."
The LFS part:
"And here is the Formula BMW in LFS. Eric was able to get the best possible reference for the interior of the car by taking photos of the real thing. I got inspired to update the gear box simulation, to drive fast as possible with a sequential gearbox you don't use the clutch and must lift off the throttle for moment to change up. Engines now have more inertia, realistic redlines, clutches can overheat and engines can be stalled. Eric has updated the Blackwood track, there are some changes to the chicane after the hairpin and the section after the main straight to make it more interesting for the less powered cars. He is also worked a lot on the graphics of South city. It's physically safer as well, the curbs are protected by barriers like you would see at Monaco. The AI drivers can now drive out of the pitlane for qualifying or practice and come back in at the end of the race. Their racing line is now calculated in a much better way, they can drive much faster and more consistently than in the old version. They adjust their driving to deal with the condition of their tires and changing weight due the fuel usage. Thanks for watching, i hope you enjoyed the video."
If you meant if French, or if someone has done this already, I'm going to kill something! :P
Hah, so you think the President circus actually effects the economy? And it's not just a fluke in the statistics? Or, the current President and his party making things look better in their last year?
And it is looking like a bad your for business in the US for the next year, investors are not that confident. But you are right, we are having some inflation problems over here. ECB kept it's interest at 4,0% against what people thought today. But some inflation is always normal when you are experiencing economical growth, because the amount of money on the move will increase.
Yes, but why? You can't have a discussion about the subject what the thread is about. In this case the new car. Besides, why this should be a happy happy thread, so the devs don't get upset? I'm sure they are up to read different opinions and follow the discussion if they like to, long as it doesn't get that nasty. It's not like they can't read other threads on the forums if the threads would be separated is it?
Don't see a reason for that. Is it just me who still think this is rather nice play with not much whoring and flaming?
Now we are getting really off-topic though. These threads usually end up locked, but usually not before the patch is released.
