Quote from ColeusRattus :Perhaps it's time for you to move on to something else then. Also, I can't really agree to you. Of course everyone in here knows that the physics are still flawed, but as far as I can recall, most of the patches did more the the physics than to the look of the game. Additionally, the better and more complex the system is, the longer it takes to considerably improve it.

Assuming you are referring to me with "you", which really isnt adequate in forums.
You don't need to remember anything, just check the changelogs for patch z and y from lfs.net. It quickly becomes apparent that most of the changes to physics have been minor tweaks, excluding clutch heat, tyre heat and gearboxes.
Quote from ColeusRattus :Fact: people who utter assumptions as "facts" are retarded.

Touche sir, touche.

I suggest you don't reply to this message, or any other for that matter, if your input isnt something else than "go play some other game" or "you're a demo racer, you're wrong".
Quote from amp88 :Then, when everyone comes to the decision it feels just like the FXO (which it probably will...)

I might be wrong, but I have a feeling it won't be. I expect it to be better than the FXO.

No problem with not being excited about it though, if you start with low expectations, you can't be disappointed
Quote from plehto :realistic slip curves for slicks, undertray downforce, downforce relative to yaw

I like realism as much as the next guy, and I'd be happy to hear that any of the above have been addressed in a patch. But TBH, I don't think I'd notice very much difference from any of them. I wouldn't say, "Alright! This finally feels exactly like a real Raceabout!"

A new car, on the other hand, is very easy to notice. Bad undertray aero notwithstanding.
Nice to see the devs continue the "christmas present" tradition. Thanks v. much guys, looking forward to it.
Quote from Scawen :You are right but no, the LFS one does not have multilink rear suspension. It just has the best available in LFS which is a double wishbone. At some point I'd like to add better suspension types with more complex motion but that has not been done yet.

That's great news (though I'm not holding my breath ) - I was hoping to see multilink suspensions delivered along with the Scirocco but...

I'm not disappointed one bit because after all multilink is just a space-saving compromise between smaller and better. I'm sure you have found a way to recreate faithfully the behavior of the RL car.

It's also great to see you address publicly some of the criticism which is often done heard on the board.

Thanks again for including the Scirocco
Quote from plehto :snip

Well, I for on don't think it's inappropriate to adress people directly with a "you" in here. But seeing that you are from finnland, I understand that notion. Having been in Tampere a few weeks ago, you're one of the most reserved people I have ever encountered. It's almost spooky (unless you meet a drunk finn...)

It's just that I am annoyed that no matter what the patch brings, there's always somebody complaining. "what only physics improvements? I want new cars!" "I want new tracks! who cares about clutch heat?" and now it's the other way round. Some people are never content, and instead of acknowledging what has been done, they're putting flak on what' not been done.
I LIKE THIS CAR SO MUCH . I guess it will be FWD?
Quote from ColeusRattus :It's just that I am annoyed that no matter what the patch brings, there's always somebody complaining.

Some people are like that, if you stay in any community for enough time you'll risk to develop an allergic reaction to their remarks. It's a (well, not so positive IMO) way they show their interest in LfS. Just don't let them spoil the share of fun you're getting from it
Quote from dustthatass :Yo Danny thanks for the pics. I don't have the CMX Viewer for the new patch (V0.6A). Can't wait until next week!!!:woohoo:

Quote from Scawen :
You will need an S1 or S2 license in order to drive the Scirocco when it is released.

get S2 in this week!! (or at least S1^^)

Great Presentation !!!

Thank you Eric,Scawen and Victor.
hmmm... why you don´t post in testpatches? we want to solve all bugs don´t we?
Quote from John5200 :hmmm... why you don´t post in testpatches? we want to solve all bugs don´t we?

Because he said next week
Looks awesome thanks Devs for this wonderful car
Quote from JohnUK89 :Because he said next week

that´s too less time to check the car for bugs
Quote from John5200 :hmmm... why you don´t post in testpatches? we want to solve all bugs don´t we?

For the VWS, it's probably not really needed because
- the 3d model is finished (viewer)
- the car has been drivable for ages (GC)
- alpha/beta testers & devs have had plenty of time to tweak the handling since GC

That said, the definitive release date and lack of test patches feels like there won't be huge changes in 0.6A
a ford granada & a jaguar XJ6 series 3 and volvo240 estate to go!
