Really looking forward to this update when it eventually surfaces. I've been playing LFS for over 7 years so it will certainly be exciting to receive such a significant graphical update. The screenshots look very promising.
I'm sure this has probably been mentioned several times already but I feel like this update, since it is focused around improving the graphical qualities of the game, would benefit from an increase in resolution of skin downloads from LFS World.
I spend a lot of time creating my own skins in Photoshop and I always feel a bit disappointed that most players can only see a very low-resolution 512px versions of them once they are downloaded from LFS World. I am aware we have the option to download 1024px skins in exchange for a small payment, but that is still a low resolution in itself and I suspect only a small percentage of players actually choose to do this after already purchasing a license for the game.
Sadly, it is fact that the vast majority of players are going to remain looking at 512px versions of our skins whilst playing online in LFS, which is unfortunate as these low-resolution versions are particularly unsightly especially in mid-2019 when high DPI monitors are such commonplace. For players who use VR headsets, it likely appears even worse and disrupts the immersion of racing online in virtual reality.
It is my opinion that the default resolution for skin downloads should be increased to 2048px with the options still available for 512/1024px downloads for players who struggle with slower internet connections. It seems silly to me how LFS World has actually allowed 2048px uploads for years, yet the players can only download a maximum of 1024px at an additional price.
I think this would make for a drastic difference to online gameplay and is surely not too difficult when the support is already there for 2048px uploads to LFS World. I sincerely hope it is something that can be implemented within the next update if possible.
