i voted yes i agree, because it shouldnt be banned, because it is afterall only a server option, option meaning not some servers might not have it on, that way we have the best of both worlds. even tho i use cockpit mode myself so im not affected im trying to see it from others' viewpoint
I agree with disabling the 3rd person cam, but not the other one.
When you drive a car in real life, you're only focussed on whats beyond the windshield. I don't want to see the interior of the car. I always put the cam at the position of the wheel, and it feels more realistic.
That is exactly how I feel about this issue. LFS's default cockpit view doesn't come close to a real life equivalent. When you transfer LFS's default cockpit view to real life, it's like sitting on a back seat of an average family sedan with the front seat taken out. People hype it only because it's labeled "cockpit" view.
I don't agree. Maybe if you got a huge monitor it should be fine. But I don't have one. I like to see whats beyond my car, not what's in it. Just like real life. In real life you have a 180 degrees field of view. In LFS its just a small screen. That's why I prefer to see only the bonnet.
I'm used to it now, so I don't like the option. If all the big servers would have this option on, I simply wouldn't drive on them, leaving what? A few lagging servers where only 8 cars are allowed? It's a bit of a doom scenario, but what if...
And exactly what you say Renku!
If I want a forced cockpit view I'll race it in real life. This is a sim, it can't be perfect, it just simulates. The way I put my option simulates the way I experience driving in real life.
I understand the people who have temporarily lost their custom views, it's hard to adapt if you need a special setting because of your different hardware or something. But, in general.. Well, i made a picture.
Partly true but what comes to nKp, being too hardcore is really smallest of the problems regarding lack of online activity I don't think the stuff I mentioned would cut down potential customer count (except those who are already playing the wrong game), it's just that LFS have had these things for years and people have used to it too much.
Good suggestion, just having two sliders for seat position would be a lot easier than making custom view... in custom view you can of course place the seat (meaning camera) anywhere you want but it's more complicated.
i mostly drive from the roof view. in cockpit i always seem to cut someone off becuase I can't see that they're there! Pitspotter would help but I would't have a forced cockpit view untill the interiors have been finalized.
Realism has its borders. This IS and STAYS a racinggame. As been said up here: If I want a forced cockpit view I'll race it in real life. This is a sim, it can't be perfect, it just simulates. The way I put my option simulates the way I experience driving in real life.
And if people who have the habit of using this cockpit view only can laugh, call us cheaters, and so on...
Man, had no idea people/this forum/LFS had lowered down so much in level during my study break.
Sad, just sad.
Feel the same way. Who drives with two wheels anyway? (Your desktop wheel, and the wheel on the screen).
Also. In real cars you can move your head to the side so you can see past the those posts that keep the roof up.
