Hmm oh.. But I like more variations of font colors too. Maybe we can sneak it in during the beta release patch sequence / episode. We will see, when it's time.
VR is still quite nieche, small breadcrumbs use this technology. Racing wheels on the other hand.. This force feedback system of LFS needs an update desperately (I think it coincides with this physics update).
But, nice that you sneak in some news in this topic.
Funny thing! I was there ~2 months ago! The car was underpowered XFG (to simulate an old car) with 4 gears. It had custom pedals (sadly no clutch) and a custom all metal clunky H shifter. It was quite fun.
The sad part was that the LFS there is quite old (check the minimap) and worst of all - they didn't say that it's LFS anywhere !
In case anyone is wondering: Canonical (the Company behind Ubuntu Linux) developed a new Package Manager (kind of like an "App Store") for Ubuntu. Anyone can create and publish "Snaps", as the packages are called so that other users of Ubuntu or another Linux distribution that supports snaps can download and install them.
Apparently, someone named Taqi Raza (mmtrt) packaged and published a Live for Speed snap in the beginning of December that, basically, installs Wine, downloads the LFS installer from LFS.net, installs and sets everything up.
I think this is cool. I just hope the devs were informed beforehand and that mmtrt continues to maintain the snap.
Edit: @Devs, it appears that the snap uses Wget to download the installer from lfs.net, so if you'd like an indication of how many installs this generates perhaps look for the Wget User-Agent in your server logs.
I just wonder why the shop link for license is going through bit.ly (it seems to redirect directly, at first I thought it hides some analytics of the package author, but doesn't look like that). And the official link is similarly short, so... what's going on? (I think somebody should try to contact him to modify it, bit.ly links are suspicious...
