Video where you can hear the new super loud transmission sound
It even stutters as power delivery fluctuates
The guy is using a G27 there., in another video I saw the rev lights on the wheel light up http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JlNp1UnY0ro
Funny how you all believe the clutch/transmission/engine simulation to be flawed when it could simply be the speedo
I very much doubt they properly simulate a tranny/diff/wheel shaft driven speedometer.
LOL, I made that edited M5 video, (fixed the phase problems in the audio) then someone re uploads it to Youtube, along with the same comments I had in the original video description..... even the title and keywords are exactly the same!
You paid for LFS, right? so if you pay for real cars, why did you buy LFS? i assume you have Rfactor or NKpro aswell, being a sim racing fan, why did you buy them if you strictly want real cars? I'm assuming when you play LFS you drive strictly the BF1 and RAC? No? Well what a hypocrite you are.
Stop being so ridiculously narrow-minded, this car is cool as a technical exercise, who hasn't imagined what F1 would be like with no rules? Using the "I pay for real cars, not made up ones" argument is monumentally idiotic.
LFS was never about real cars and real tracks for me, so I won't have expectation about that. GT5 on the other hand is all about the details of recreating real cars, that all round attention to detail (although still questionable in the physics department), having a car almost purely fictional serves no purpose for me in this particular game, the same goes to the Citreon GT, which is merely a stlying exercise and not properly dialed in in terms of engineering, driving these cars with made up performance does not really add to my experience.
That makes it entirely two different product, I buy LFS for the physics and online racing, but I buy GT5 for the real cars and immersion.
The same theory of me buying a Wii for casual party play and a PS3 for HD gaming, I can enjoy two different product which serve different purposes, it does not make me an hypocrite.
This is nothing new tbh, go to any 3D modelling forum and look at the gallery, plenty of futuristic formula car to look at, it just doesn't excite me, especially when its performance is mostly made up. I don't believe Adrian Newey will personally model it and tested it in CFD for accurate performance.....he probably just drew a sketch on ideas he could implement and someone took that job of modelling it.
I don't see anyway you can say I'm wrong about not being excited, that's my personal gut feeling.
You know why they do it? E-penis.
This car, I swear on the petrol gods themselves, will be the most hotly contested hotlap vehicle in the game. There's a lot of people out there who want to hold the WR for no reason other than to have their name instead of someone else's.
So by adding the car, and making it - presumably - totally overpowered and unbalanced - they immediately appeal to those people because they don't need to work through the other cars to find the fastest.
Personally I couldn't give a rats ass. I'd much rather lose a good close race than win as if I was the only one on the track. And as I've said before in LFS and Forza threads, I must prefer racing the slower cars anyway.
It's interesting, a bit of a talking point. Of course it's fictitious, and other people have designed no-rules F1 cars before, but when have you known or seen something like this come from an actual F1 team? (Regardless of the extent of Newey's involvement, his name is on it, so he must have at least signed it off, purely to avoid potential embarrassment- he might even have been paid to do it!).
Not going to be something I'm keen to "drive" or race online with, though.
Everything that has happened with GT5 so far, points to the fact that the game that the dev team WANT to make is not only EXTREMELY time consuming, but also, technologically to advanced for current hardware.
I am all for pushing the envelope, but you've got to draw the line somewhere.
Its clear that when GT5 is released, it will be a pared down version of the dev teams original vision.
