Quote from Lynce :I've also noticed that users are going in one direction or another depending on what most say. This is a reality.

So you want to say this is a totalitarian community or sth just because 99 % of people here think that 2 + 2 = 4 ?

People may be rude, calling other people names and still be right about some issue. It's like a difference between form and substance, although I think being nice to other people is substance too but another kind of substance, it's probably the most important thing in life if you think about it long enough. Some run out of their lives before they reach this conclusion, so you can't demand that from people who are not even in their twenties.

I just checked and I could not find a way to login to this forum or lfsworld using HTTPS. Correct me if I'm wrong. I could only login to www.lfs.net through HTTPS. Therefore, every time you login to this forum or lfsworld your username and web password is sent through the Internet in plain text.

Quote from Lynce :The only thing I was doing was maneuvering to return to move normally.

What say you? What we do in this moment?


First of all when joining mid-race it's a good idea not to enter the track before the leaders. They are usually quick and will soon catch you, and may be angry when you ruin their race. OTOH people like me who are happy to finish around P8 on a full CTRA Race 1 are usually calmer, as they don't have much to lose . Spectate for a while and use the map to avoid joining ahead of the leaders.

Quote from deggis :And maybe EA needed half-ready game... which Blimey did have - that unnamed Ferrari game. Screenshots from that look very similar to this Shift cockpit shot.

They had also Falcon project, over 2 years in development, and the press release said that only one of their projects survived. It seems Falcon could be planned from the very beginning as new NFS, but all the details were kept secret.

Quote from Furiously-Fast :NFS: Shift - could fail if it is just a Grid clone.

Why is it supposed to be a Grid clone? Because it has a city track and cockpit view? Does it make LFS a Grid clone also?

Achieving torque split (at least in theory) was discussed here http://www.lfsforum.net/showthread.php?t=23929 .

Thanks, I look much better with these new stats.
However, I was just wondering what is the exact meaning of these new stats. I happen to be on CTRA for less than 56 days , so I thought that 'Yellows' percentage on the MyCTRA page should be the same as 'Yellow Flag Ratio (Last 56 days)' in my case, but it is not. Is that correct? Is 'Yellow Flag Ratio (Last 56 days)' calculated only from finished races?

Quote from S14 DRIFT :All the rich kids these days have no talent.

This is the original video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Quuqhjnxwq4 and there are more videos in the same profile. This guy actually built the equipment himself, so I would say he has lots of talent and motivation, just not necessarily spends all his time driving LFS.

Quote from StableX :I don't like NKP any more. It doesn't have cruise servers

What's worse, it doesn't have CTRA.

Lerts, you will not create energy this way, only transfer potential energy into kinetic energy and back.
The formula for calculating the potential energy is at the end of this section (ignore the constant gravity discussion at the beginning): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P ... tational_potential_energy

But you forgot to tell us what law of science your thought experiment contradicts. Maybe... none?
And you can do away with one of the masses here. If you drop one mass into your tunnel in the earth from its surface, it won't be able to stop immediately in the middle, so after passing the center of the earth it will move 'up' also for a while.

Maybe you should use another approach and try scanning force feedback effects sent by the game. Have you explored x-sim software, especially Yoda? http://www.x-simulator.de/main/en/yoda2/yoda2.html

You could try to write a program that generates random autocross layouts for LFS based on specified criteria (LFS track, length, track width, twistiness, surfaces).

Generating rally pacenotes for these layouts and a program that reads them while a user drives (this would require InSim, however) could be next steps.

If we count only champions from earlier years then at the beginning of 1968 season (Kyalami race) there were also 5 champions:
Jack Brabham
Graham Hill
Jim Clark
John Surtees
Denny Hulme

Not having standalone functions in Java is not such a big problem. It is probably because Java classes (in compiled form) are also basic deployable and executable units. At least since version 1.5 you can "import static java.lang.Math.*" and then just use sin(x), cos(x) etc. in your code.

IMHO, the track is not a problem here, but the safety car regulations which can make race results almost random. There are much cheaper ways to organize lotteries.

Quote from jtw62074 :360Hz is an odd one along with a couple of the others.

It has good reason at least in case of Forza Motorsport 2. Their graphics is always at 60 fps (when playing), so with 360 Hz physics rate the graphics is smooth and they don't need to interpolate between 2 physics steps to get the state used for a single graphics frame. LFS also does not have such interpolation but some people notice it's not smooth, for example with 75 Hz monitor refresh rate and full screen vertical sync switched on.

Quote from The Very End :I would die for some extra rally tracks, sadly that rally pack never were released. Most likely canceled.

I wonder which rally team that was.
Quote :Well, we have been approached by a well-known rally team who like LFS a lot! If everything goes to plan then we will have something interesting that rally fans can look forward to.

I hope one day it will be better, even better than in RBR, varied, deformable.

Quote from Minimaxman :So your saying that 3 chooseable, pre-programmed settings make the car more tuneable than all the other cars in LFS!?

I, erm, think not.

Not in general, of course, but in Scirocco it's possible to switch between these 3 settings while driving. If that is implemented in LFS then you could use Sport setting most of the time but change to Normal to cut chicanes.

Quote from Mikkomattic :I also think that the setup should be approximated as real as possible and locked. In this game, that'd be a real novelty, and lend authenticity.

This is a good idea IMO, but this specific car can be actually more flexible with setup than current LFS cars in some regards.
Quote :the Adaptive Chassis Control, has three settings (Normal, Sport and Comfort) which alter the steering and suspension settings on the fly.

Quote from ACCAkut :PS: they should then integrate the (GTR) 24H version too

And the track.
