Years ago I played this old mod for NASCAR 2003. The guy basically modded his neighborhood and put all sorts of things in it. Oncoming traffic and a freight train were two of those things. Unfortunately the mod was a little glitchy and would lock up more often than not. But it was enough for me to realize that a train in S.City would be a cool challenge. Especially on Classic in the Chicane. I know Fern bay has train tracks in some of their configurations too, but it's more pronounced in S.City.
Seeing I don't know a thing about coding, I can throw out goofy suggestions all the time. Most of any suggestions I make are just that: goofy. They're not really meant to be taken seriously. Except the train idea. I don't know what kind of coding is involved in making a train for South City. I'm not so sure about how it would affect overall game play either. I just thought it would be a cool thing to have as an option.
I'd much rather have something like an illegal street race server with a working train than I would want to have a plain ol Cruise server.
But you're right. Still need to weigh the coolness factor of these game enhancements versus the pain in the butt factor of making any of these enhancements.
LFS is for the most part a racing game and not a train simulator. Thus having a moving train on a race track seems rather daft. It might be fun for all thr cruisers out there, but then the autocross editor might need a few more train related objects.
However, I foundly remember the LFS football / autoball events from back in the day - I want a scalable ball object!
I'm like Tom Hanks, lost in "Cast away" somewhere in nowhere.
I sleep in front of the garage gate of Blackwood .... like the Apple fans in front of the Apple stores. Sure is sure .... in the end there is a clearance sale and there are not enough updates for all ...
