AIs are the first "pilots" each LFSer meets, before going online.
Sometimes racing online can be intimidating, or plain difficult, to the newcomer, so every improvement towards getting more "real" AIs is welcome
1) Did you install the full version or the patch?
2) What do you see in your LFS\data\ogg folder?
3) What happens if you go to Options... Audio... Select and try to play one of the music tracks there? (see attachment)
Thanks for making that clear. Whould be nice to see video showing new abilities of physics engine. Scirocco video was nice to watch. By the way I think "How to install Live for Speed" video should be removed to not mislead people as now we have a great installer.
That's fantastic. By the way - is it possible to increase the max. lock of steering in cars used for drifting too? That will be big, awesome gift from you, especially, we will have new physics, so possibility to change max lock to 45* will be realistic (as in real drifting cars) and awesome
However, I'm pretty sure, that new patch will be smashing
Fantastic news indeed. But if we are making limited setups and extreme then how about making it indeed extreme? Up to the drifting motorsport level.
2 typical mods in drifting that go together:
1) Tracking (that was in s1)
2) Steering lock modification that often needs tracking modified as well (was in s1)
3) Caster (was in s1)
I hope the pictures will give an idea of what steering lock drift cars use, which is actually more than 45 (pictures speak more than words):
Could ofcourse post more pictures, but I think it's enough.
Anyway, interesting idea would be to not allow the setup to be saved if steering lock / caster / tracking settings are not right. For example if the wheel is scrubbing the body badly. That way it would take some compromise to get big steering lock + it wouldn't allow 3d wheel model going trough car body. Unless the tire/body scrub is modeled then there is no need for that.
IMO realistic setup options on all the road cars is an absolute necessity in LFS, and it's where it's lagging behind the most compared to other sims. The hugely unrealistic setup options we have now make it so that people can come up with the most ridiculous setups and be fast with them.
Realistic setup options would be a huge leap forward for LFS. And not as a host option, 'cause that will just shift the problem elsewhere. Sure there's gonna be loads and loads of people whining over this. Well bugger them. When has it ever been different whenever a big change was made?
