What is a bad attitude? Saying that you need to move your ass yourself when you want something? It's not a bad attitude, it's a pretty normal attitude. Learn, create, use. Not steal or depend on others. -That- would be a bad attitude.
Well one thing is for sure, the tools are already there. For years. No need to wait on a next update. If you really want something you need to set your mind to it and produce it yourself and not wait on some jezus who is going to arrange everything. Humanity is waiting for over 2000 years already.
what do you want to hear? It stays the same. If you want something different then some alternative group of coders / graphics engineers need to be formed for something new and/or open. And thats it. Nothing has popped up yet but virtually every day this could change of course, who knows.
LFS is based on times when analog modems where still active (mentioning of 56k modem in host settings). I still have one in a box somewhere but I don't think its being used anymore around the world, maybe something for a museum to put on display but it's more a target for the garbage belt I'm afraid.
It all can use some upgrading to modern times and this costs time. It's fine, no need to ask every month how its going.
Hah.. Ye, very true. Only the parking garage has lights. Randomized lights (going on and off at long intervals) in the apartment / office blocks? Would be funny.. But.. Not much to do with a racing sim anymore. Difficult.
It's being created after Eric looked what cruise servers are doing I guess; placing a gazillion objects on the center of the road to prevent wrong way driving. Nice, but not handy for racing.
Maybe the appearance of these objects can get triggered by the cruise flag. (letter C @lfsworld)
[attachment] I also noticed this gray area, normally this is a section where you would expect an object. A place for pedestrians and or people with bike to pause when crossing the road, but its entirely removed here. Either coincidental or this is really a different mode where some object is removed.
Kinda weird by the way to have lightrail trains scattered around the racing/driving area. Normally they would be parked in a depot during an event but hhmm okay, nitpicking.
Hmm I do not fully agree. X/Y determines the start/finish direction.
edit: but, hhmm.. On South City its not so important it seems.. Only SF-line is positioned wrong, there are no grid slots and traffic lights work in both directions so can create a custom grid field if you want other direction in the end.. I guess.
Its a bad idea to have it in normal race layouts but also in the open world version it would be bad as it would massively limit the so called open racing layout creativity. But, I do not want to jump to any conclusions at this point. First patch-test release the whole stuff and see how it goes. Some kind of track loading switch would be nice but we will see. (Same kind of worries drifters had/have earlier @AutoX)
sure it is.. Never seen vandals doing their "job"? In minutes its gone. Im pretty sure if some street circuit race is going to be held at Monaco/Vietnam/Singapore/Azerbaijan the same stuff is being done. Its not much work to remove it temporarily for a race.
