You can't compare iRacing and LFS. The cost of LFS is equal to 3 cars on iRacing. That is disregarding the $100 yearly subscription. All you just succeeded in doing is making yourself look like a further cheap bastard. Unwilling to spend $45 for life on a game, but "$200+ a year looks appealing".
And yes, I read what you are saying, and it's downright idiotic. I agree that LFS' price should be decreased or put on sale, but stealing it because it is not does not make it OK.
Did I said I wanted to pay for it? NO I just said its more appealing and welcoming to new players gezz, someone named it out(cargame.nl relating with piracy), making me take a look at it, am I forbidden? By the way stop trying to be funny.
Same for you, I just said it looked more appealing I won't pay for it specially yearly, I'm just comparing in terms of development progress also I suggested the SALES + steamworks some pages back including others.
As mcmustang said before don't pull the "stealing" card ok? We're not trying to bring piracy back.
I only mentioned Iracing for the hosting part, nothing else. If you host in a controlled environment you can encrypt more easily , change encryption routines or start a case against someone who tries to do copyright infringement by creating a fake host.
In another way LFS does not survive, times have changed. Piracy is higher then ever, Pereulok is switched off, but for how long? Just a matter of time before it shows up again or someone else with the same structure. The new generation is too egoistic, you need different actions for this. Yes, walls..
I play other game and where there are premium stuff and all. Yet they still let you test the premium content but not play multiplayer unless you buy it. Which is kinda great deal since the player can check it out and get addicted, otherwise they will just be scared off by the price.
The same game had decline in the community (it wasn't because of piracy since it cant be pirated, more like no one tried to do it and no one wants to since the game is accessible to anyone, offering fun for each type of players) and in order to counter that the devs released new content, improved graphics and fixed bugs that appeared.
And if you say "well then go play that game, what are you doing here?" you are quite non intelligent person. More like you are the reason why there is decline in the community. You are the one chasing away people.
So let's assume (hypothetically) you have never cracked LFS,you have spare 24 pounds and like 500HP GTR cars. And also you have tried in demo all 3 cars,checked out how physics work,how graphics look like and how online mode funcions. You see in contents section and lfsmanual that S2 licence offers 3 different 500HP GTR cars. What do you think that these GTR cars suddenly act so much differentally from the demo slicks car FBM that it will be a huge dissapointment,waste of money? Or you think that Blackwood is the highest quality track and rest are quick made crappy ones? Well,if you have doubts about stuff,normal people search for info (you know,the things called google,bing and whatever is still there these days),check videos,read reviews. But not you - you demand free test for all "premium" content,because you have seen the same in some other game.
I'm active in LFS forum since 2010. Since about same time LFS's online activity is shrinking. Coincidents? Well,you just found out that it's not! Ban me,give this guy a medal and free licence - he just saved the day! /sarcasm
I just have an allergy to moaning criticizers - some random people come here (in latest case from stopped cracker community),never ever ever EVER have conributed to LFS in any way and then criticize - this is not good,in other sims this is better,in other game everything else is so much better. How constructive is that? What do you expect now? That devs drop their plans and rush to change stuff so you are now satisfied? What color have the unicorns in the dreamland you live?
PS. One extremely intelligent dude already stated that people in LFSP are 10 times smarter then the ones here,since I'm just an average LFSW person,so that means I posess just 10% of the brain power of your kind. Of course I'm a non intelligent person!
Why? The topic cow$#!t anyway,so I just have some fun while it lasts.
One thing you don't know Benom, is that every single crack user is a potential buyer. What did you do by not welcome us and insulting us..? Yes, it's normal for us to complain, but it's not normal for you to insult ut. I won't fight for anything anymore, the rule is simple, buy it or shut up.
Haha, no they're not. There's a demo of LFS with a HUGE amount of content for free, if they were a potential buyer they would've bought the game already because they've experienced enough.
Plus pretty much 99% of crack users are Brazilian kids who can't afford LFS.
"What did you do by not welcome us and insulting us"
Again, stop trying to play the victim here. You crack users literally spammed multiple posts all over this forum about stupid Pereulok not working.
1. That's **** ing disgusting to come here and complain about you piracy methods not working.
2. You people spammed a ton of posts in random sections on this forum
3. There were multiple kids making jokes about the devs and legit users, who then proceeded to swear and insult multiple legit users.
"it's normal for us to complain"
No it's not, this is the first time I've seen in my entire life people going into the official forum of a game and complaining about a crack not working. Well that's not entirely true, I've seen it before, but it was 1 user (not 50) and he got banned within minutes.
Seriously as of now, you can **** off and please never come back...
Some of the "crack users" (your words not mine) posting on here have accounts registered for more than a year (including yourself) and have openly admitted to using crack content for a long time, just how much time do you need to go from potential buyer to licence owner?
I'm sorry but you are really not helping yourself, I'm not sure what responses you're expecting?
If you look away from all the recent crack topics and look at the rest of the forum you'll find it is actually a very friendly and helpful community, just some people don't set the best first impressions...
I didn't complain about the crack, i didn't take sides, i was just saying things. And i think you misunderstanded me.
GAVD999, i think insulting is not a part of the behave of a communitty, after all every single player represents lfs. And if this is how they represent it.. it's bad.
Even if we we're arguing, as long as i didn't insult anyone, i don't think i deserve to be insulted in such way. I didn't come here to TAKE sides or whatever, i came here to tell my opinions. And if they were wrong, i didn't deserve to be insulted.
