I made £150 yesterday doing extra work for the movie "The King's Speech". Long day with a stupidly early start (having to be in Central London for 7:30am on a Sunday is inhuman) but was good fun. And knowing that I should be pretty easy to spot in a couple of the scenes is good too
His "reviews" are a bit hit and miss but most of the time he's brilliant. I do think he picks on the smallest flaws in some games, he can't hate the industry all that much if he keeps coming back to review more
Got a few cm overnight, which of course has caused the usual London crap. So we have traffic doing 15mph on obviously-clear roads and total wheelspin chaos on the side roads that haven't been cleared by the traffic. It still makes me angry how useless people are even on this amount.
I've got a costume fitting this afternoon and a pitiful little covering of snow isn't going to stop me getting there.
Same thing applies. Imagine it on a bigger scale. One physics refresh per second. Most of the time you'd be fine because the cars stay apart but when they collide you have to wait for the next second for the collision to be detected. Think how far overlapped the cars could get in a second - that's a lot of force build up. Those forces get applied in that next cycle irrelevant of whether you've actually seen them build up or not.
I can't remember what rate LFS updates at (is it 333Hz?) but for the sake of easiness we'll use 100Hz. With 100 refreshes per second you only have 1/100th of a second before the collision is detected, but even then the cars can overlap a long way before that happens. It can't be ruled out totally (my earlier example was a combination of both net lag and physics refresh latency) but the issue is exasperated when you combine that physics rate with a connection which may lose those packet updates along the way.
If your car is doing 100mph then it will travel just under half a meter per 100Hz physics refresh, and that's a lot of distance to overlap
Just remember that until you have the minimum required specifications (and in car terms this means shedloads of safety equipment and a minimum ride height) designing any vehicle is a waste of time.
You could come up with the most beautiful car ever created but when the engineers come back and say "the front needs to be higher for SUV impact zones, the sides need reinforced to withstand more force, the rear needs raised to meet NCAP standards" and the brief says "the boot needs to be bigger, it needs more headroom, those lights aren't big enough" your idea goes to hell
I'm not sold on it. I think the hatch is better looking than the 2nd-gen version, but the back looks unnecessarily high up. There's a lot of door between the ground and the window and that makes it look like an SUV at the rear end.
I always hated the mk1 saloon and this version is much nicer. But I don't think it's as nicely shaped as the mk4 Mondeo.
You ever think there's maybe a reason for that? It's a lag issue more than it is a physics issue and I'm pretty sure it relates to the number of cycles dedicated to external body collisions and the latency between server and client skipping them.
If that's what is actually happening then the physics system would need updated to run a higher physics frequency which would eat up even more CPU time.
I noticed this when I made up my first LFS decal in Forza 2. I have to agree with the last few guys, I was heartbroken. I felt like that favicon had been lying to me for all these years. It was like a betrayal on a primal level. In fact, if it wasn't for that prostitute and her subsequent murder I don't think I could have lived with the knowledge.
The advantage of "celebs" these days is that they're mostly reality stars so they get famous for doing sod all. And that inspires young people to think that sitting around benig chavvy scum and talking crap about people will somehow make them money.
While I'm not a hardcore racing fan like a lot of people on here, I admire the skill that's involved and would definitely like the chance to have a go at it and see how much destruction I could cause I much prefer rally driving and would've loved to just sit in the passenger seat with McRae driving, but obviously that's not likely to happen now.
Most of my idols growing up were musicians, but at least they got famous by having a marketable talent.
I love this forum. A question about motorhomes to biscuits to the state of celebrity, all within 30 posts. F*cking awesome
Jammie Dodgers aren't a biscuit I normally think about when I imagine the ones I really like. But the other day I had to eat one to stave off hypoglycemia and I began to appreciate them again. Jaffa Cakes and Caramel Logs are still the pinnacle of biscuits though.
