Of course. I don't want to get into another war on definitions, but I hope we can agree that "slick" is not the correct term for the grooved tyres. In official circles (the FIA and team's media releases, for example) they generally weren't referred to as "slicks" but "grooved tyres", "dry weather tyres" etc. Thus, in the official capacity (in the setup screen) the term "grooved" would probably be more correct than "slick". The fact that no-one (AFAIK) has mentioned this bug before means that the vast majority of the community hadn't even thought about "slick" perhaps not being a correct label.
By the way, for all those who still want to party the extremly fast progress of this game. Its been just 2 years since the scirocco got announced.
So throw a party or something. Finish it already, it's been about time. I honestly understand that it takes time but its been 730 days and all the community has got to see is about nothing. It would be at least nice to get some report on something. Remember you have got a huge community behind you three guys who have the patience and the trust in you so its about time to give them something back.
Firstly, I think what you are doing - the efforts to making handling etc more realistic is a noble one. We get several racing "simulators" a year with new content and I am feeling indifferent every time I have tried them - the handling just isn't realistic at all. Soon I just drop them. LFS has been a simulator in the past for me from which I drew great pleasure of for several hours in a row.
Secondly, LFS hasn't had new content (and by content I mean a few tracks and a few cars) for a couple of years now. It's like screwing the prettyest model in the world. At some point it will not be exciting as the first 100 times.
Now I am not the one who wants to shout or demand new things and please don't get me wrong. That's not what I am trying to say. I respect the fact that' it is Scavier's simulator and not mine. However, I would just love it to bits if we could get a few new tracks and cars to drive on - not for free, mind you. I'd be perfectly happy to pay a lot of money for them if I knew I wasn't renting them (as in iRacing). They don't need to be perfect right away. Make them raceable now as in current S2 handling - it is perfectly cool the way it is now - few simulators can match it anyway and it would give the community immense amount of pleasure. Then work on the new tyre/handling model for a few years again - let's be honest, few have tried to make as good handling model as you are trying to do and I bet even god doesn't know how long it can take. And the better it will be the happier I will be. But I just wish there was a few new tracks to drive the cars around on.
Nobody is "partying" that. We all would love to have more frequent updates, it's just that some people are intelligent enough to have realized by now that moaning and whining doesn't make the progress any faster.
So you are satisfied to get the runaround all the time. I agree with you that moaning and whining doesn't help the progress, but it wouldnt be hard to give any more specific comments on the progress. I mean just a few new screenshots would sooo cool down the heat and lift up the spirits, but i guess that is just too much already.
How do you know that it wouldn't be hard to make comments on the progress. I'm sure Scawen should throw around with words that nobody except BBT, Niels and some others can understand but that wouldn't really make sense.
And how do you make a screenshot of physics?
And I'm pretty sure that those screenshots wouldn't cool down the heat and lift up the spirits.
