Wow time goes fast. Surely we will have new stuff soon. Come on devs can't you release anything you've been working on? I thought I could wait a long time but I'm starting to want updates really really bad now...
I've been playing this game for over 7 years now and it is a shame that development has either slowed or grouped into less frequent updates. I remember we used to get lots of screenshots showing new stuff with detailed descriptions. I remember there being an announcment about clear windows so you could see the driver and interiors from the outside. I was so excited just about this and then a couple of weeks later it was released. I've no idea how long this took to code but it can't have been too long. What I'm saying is little and often is a better way at keeping your community happy.
From my point of view it seems we have lots of things like the VW, new tyre physics, rockingham, interiors etc just sat there waiting to be released and not in the hands of loyal LFS users. I know the tyre physics are probably the most single important thing in the game but there has to come a point when it's released even if it's not 100% perfect. I'm sure there's some famous saying that perfection is never achieved in the eyes of the creator or something like that. I hope the devs can understand this and get to a point where the tyre physics development can be stopped for a while and released so other things can be developed at quicker rates whilst still working as they want at their own pace. I just hope this comes sooner rather than later...
I just read Scawens post at the start, (haven't been taking my time to read this before now :P ) and it seems to me as the VW scirocco will be like a free update like the tyre physics? or am I totally mistaken here?
I don't see any credible progress on these features, I consider there is nothing to wait for. I am prepared to see that absolutely nothing will happen to LFS development one year later when I'll poke my nose here next time (it seems that the dev's communication strategy made the expected effects on me). I will just rofl if it'll be true.
While time passes, hopes became higher, exigency stronger, so the public's error tolerance became thinner. The devs are taking risks. I may call that the Gran Turismo 5 syndrome.
Aerodynamics, breakable wings (parts), new tyre physics, 2 cars and ROC were unofficially announced. (too)
I hope that Scawen wants to surprise us and he'll code & release named above too
If no, world is not going to collide nor end... (well, until 2012 :-) )
It`s almost 2 years late, and people still wait for tha scirocco. I`m wondering if they are still allowed to implemented in the game, my guess is not. I bet it will be at least another year until the next physics update. And im 10000 % sure it will not have the scirocco. ( and yes, your eyes are ok, there are 4 zeroes there)
