@numbazZ I was thinking the same! Little tweaking and it will look amazing! After all this is a work in progress screenshots / video. There is a room for improvement. Thank you for this report, Eric and Scawen.
"We want the community to have the new version so we are trying to get to that point as quickly as possible. To do that, some things we want to do can wait until after the release. For the first version, Eric plans to focus on finishing South City and Kyoto while Scawen works on the tyre physics. Fern Bay and further graphical improvements can be done after the big update."
Great to know that tyre physics will be part of the first update!
I would love to know what state they're in at the moment, and if we should be hopeful of the first update this year?
Thanks for the post, and SO at night is looking spiffy!
I kinda expect that to be left unrevealed and it might be up to us to explore the new surroundings,like it was back then with Westhill.
What I'm more interested is - will there be more official configurations in South City? I'm sure it will be up to us,community,to create many other custom configurations,but would be nice to have some new standard configurations with full path and raceline,supporting also AI racing.
To me it looks like the 2nd Westhill,where layout builders like me can extend their creativity with new racetracks.
That's stunning, Thanks Scavier for the work.
Even the fences are looking better.
The only thing that bothers me is the video store... well there is not that much left currently...
As "Fern Bay and further graphical improvements can be done after the big update." that means to me than the release is not so far anymore. I am excited!
Edit: and thanks @Degats for the comparisons!
Edit: I am curious who edited the video? It is very smooth and relaxing, and the tunnel with the light at the end perfect!
The video really is fantastic.
It does look very well done. I hope you guys continue to work hard and remember to enjoy the process too!
This definitely feels refreshing as well as a glimpse into the future of how LFS will look. It does feel special to see change happen to a game that has been very dear since I got introduced to it back in 2007 when I was just 11
S1 licence with only South City 2.0 will worth the price already !
London bourough FTW !
Eric : hope the highway will be open on Blackwood, you cannot make such a huge SO environment without doing the visible roads of Blackwood
I am joining the crowd regarding the video : clearly impressive in itself
