Ladies and gentleman. choose your favorite song to start playing and make yourselves comfortable to enjoy this thread, the addons download and the visualization of them.

Welcome to a new makeover of your favorite racing simulator.



Introduction._

The reason for the Revolution Pack June 24th (excuse me for having brought it much earlier but the planning has been very good) is because the lfsforum.net has encouraged me a lot since I made the first RP April 7th.

This work has been very successful not only here but in communities around the world. To all of you I say, thank you.

In fact the RP June 24th would not exist. It does thanks to all of you and your motivation.

It also exists due to the lacks of the RP April 7th in which I have not investigated deeply and can be guilty of being too shiny and that there’s nothing that reflects what's on stage.

In the teaser video I have put the coat of arms of my Team. On this occasion Arias and TRAVIS have not taken part as they did in the RP 28th August (Beefyman666 has also not participated) but it was a way to honor them for the great friendship I have with them and for their unconditional support.

Now to finish I want to say thank you again, it has been a great pleasure for me to have done this work in which I spent about 257 hours (it took me more hours for less addons but the content is now higher quality). And I want to dedicate this work to all the artists who publish their work in lfsforum.net

I admire them very much for all of their work and commitment to devote themselves to the community so concerned and giving their time.

As always, I also thank:

Velociround, my great friend, who made this translation and the installers ever since the first RP I did.

Morpha for giving me space in his server to publish my work ever since the first RP.

Samuel Gariepy, A.K.A. Drifty, for having made the Revolution Pack website and giving me web support.

And lfsforum.net.

First Add-on - Skies in High Resolution._ Unrar in LFS/data/pic




Analysis._

Skies:

The documentation is going to the street and observing the sky and photographs. There is a fish-eye work and lighting adaptation to fix the obturation problem from the camera of the user who has taken the photo.

Every sky apart from "Sky_overcast_E" (Autocross Cloudy Afternoon) are taken from : http://www.cgtextures.com/

Second Add-on - Landscapes in High Definition._ Unrar in LFS/data/dds




Analysis._


Landscapes:

Without a doubt the most complex work within this pack and the one with which I had the most frustrating moments. The documentation is a function of what area and what type of vegetation the circuit has. Westhill is assumed to be an English circuit in a plain area, Fern Bay is placed somewhere in Jamaica, Aston could be anywhere in the world where the place’s names are in English and Kyoto is placed in Japan.

There is only a slight error in the landscapes and it is the Kyoto landscape with which I was unable to find the best fitting to what is called “Blue Mountains”, but it is very close.

The photographs are taken from Wikimedia commons : http://commons.wikimedia.org/w ... rch=360+degrees&go=Go y http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W ... _pictures/Places/Panorama

Third Add-on - Photorealistic Reflections._ Unrar in LFS/data/dds




Analysis._


Reflections:

To develop the reflections I do a fully comprehensive investigation based on the work and lighting I have to do. For example: Fern Bay clear day. 80% of the time it took me was the documentation I did on the street observing cars of all colors, if they are in the sun or in the shadows and see the mechanics of reflections. The other sources are youtube videos such as Top Gear and photographs.
There have been occasions in which I had to wait until the day was cloudy to perform the work of documentation.

The reflections received a lighting work of several stages. The skies stage of work, the light from the near and far elements. Then work on the global part. 3 stages as I have put it in the Teaser video.

Then I perform the tests comparing it to the real life (I go to the street), videos and photographs.

Referral link of what it means to make a file:

http://www.lfsforum.net/showthread.php?p=1416693#post1416693

My verdict for the reflections is the following:


In the Black cars the reflections shine about 10% less than in real life.
In the White cars the reflections shine about 25% more.
It was difficult to make a decision but I have achieved this balance.

The reflections consist of two modes: generic and concrete. The generic reflects the generic parts of the scenery except for South City clear evening and overcast day.
The concrete reflections reflect specific objects and the most important things of the scenery in the exact angle.
There are circuits without specific objects because its file is shared with other circuit. Therefore it has not been possible to develop a clear statistic of which objects to place.
South City clear evening and cloudy day have two options. They are concrete reflections. It has been made like this because of the amount of objects to reflect and a generic reflection would be meaningless.

Circuits with only generic reflections:

Blackwood cloudy afternoon. Blackwood cloudy sunset. Fern bay cloudy sunset, Kyoto overcast morning, Aston cloudy evening, Aston clear day, Westhill clear day.

On clear days, the cars have metallic effect in the area where the sun shines.

Quote from THE WIZARD DK :Background Menu´s !

I made these background menus using the pictures i could find in this thread an added some pictures from the thread too.
i have no idea what Lynche wanna do with menus, but this is meant as a alternate menu, so you get a pic in every menu used ingame.
i hope i dont offend by doing this. im not trying to glory in any way!
i havent changed anything but filename to fit LFS menu names.
i just saw alot of ppl asking for menus, so i thought, itll take like 2 min to do ,
when i saw that Lynche posted other pictures here aswell, so i used those and liked it, so i thought i share it here.

Background Music:

About the music. Its a DJ friend of mine who made this track for LFS only.
He calls himself : Stoned Sun , and the track is called: Violation Of Freedom
The sounds are from LeMans 24h races at the straight. (Atmosphereatstraight2)
WEB: http://www.lizardvoice.org/ http://www.snipercity.dk/

Original is in mp3, but as its illegal to upload here and the track is made ONLY for www.liveforspeed.net i ONLY upload the OGG file which can be heard inside LFS by following instructions on readme´s!

File Download: http://www.filefront.com/16684763/data.rar

INSTALL: (back up any old files)
1.Unpack with winrar or simular.
2.copy and paste folders to Dir: LFS/DATA (click yes to replace all)
3.Start up LFS.

I use the Bloom settings Below, from Velociround, i canged the settings to fit my needs.
Got great response to this setting.

Unpack to : Lfs dir. NOT in DATA folder, same folder as lfs.exe.
Use Shift+backspace to turn on/off

-----------------------------------------------------

Question to Landscapes: Do you use the DIS effect On or Off?

Thank you Lynche for the Great pack.
The best ive seen yet in Lfs!
Reflections Rocks!!!

Team Fortitude works now.

Velociround is working on the installer.

Thanks for the comments.
Brilliant Lynce. Really superb work. Thank you so much!
il wait for the installer, i browsed, so are there options, or is it just one choiie? i am not in the mood to decide anything
As allways , awesome job !
Simply awesome. Thanks
Thank you!!
Great job
Lynce, this is your best work so far. That's incredible, some skies and landscapes are just jaw dropping.

I have started doing the installers but since it's very late right now and tomorrow will be a full day of work for me, they might take a bit more than planned. I'll try to get a bit earlier from work to finish the installers by Monday evening.
Brilliant work, Lynce. Fantastic.
One word.
Awesome.

Amazing stuff again Lynce. I can see you use the time needed on your work.




The only critic I can find is the download links etc, quite confusing. But it doesn't matter! It's worth wondering what's what.

Keep up the good work. It would be nice to get all Revolution Packs in one rar for some

Thanks!

Thanks once more to all. I'm glad you like it and sorry for the inconvenience of the date. Really it is not seriously. :
