That's why i am talking about making a contest.Run it for a couple of months and having the best models of each car featured in the next release trust me you will see car models and interiors at GT 5 premium car level.....

The only thing the devs need to do is simply make a announcement in the main page.....

I can understand that they are afraid to completely open the code to create new cars and tracks of fear of low quality content but at least this way they can update the game's cars with ultra high quality cars and do that for basically nothing.Modders do not ask for money.Just a honorable mention in the credits would be more than enough for everybody.Nobody loses but everybody gains.To update the existing cars exteriors and interiors would need many months for the devs to archive.

For God's shake Scawen,Victor,Erik....if you read this just think about this...Its not like completely opening the game's code like rfactor..The physics and handling will be left alone as the sounds...
That would cover the models .....


... now how do you think the community would come up with good physics configurations that would be realistic for a specific car??

If it isn't implemented there would be no way to test that community car either. A competition on design would be pointless if you still have to wait several months for it to be tested , realistically.


EDIT: 'Demo Tag' would mean you wouldn't be able to drive that car anyhow.


Instead - come help me code my CMS ... or join me, slinger and Mat at RollcageX instead THERE we WANT more cars! Maybe help Slinger work out hi Pacjeka formulas in our physics.....

... you will see this is no easy task. And think twice the next time you post in this thread.
how u think devs did it? just compare to a similar real life car
Quote from kimd41 :because we have freedom of speech.

Yeah.........no, we don't, there is no such thing as freedom of speech here.
Eric does visit the forums, he's been on today, and he's reading this right now
Quote from e.M :how u think devs did it? just compare to a similar real life car

Well, plenty of people are under the impression that rFactor is realistic by comparing it to a road car experience. Judging by the fact that they are always wrong, I think road car comparisons (even if the simulated car is a road car) are pointless.
Quote from kimd41 :If Eric has a problem with my post, I'd appreciate a reply with a "Yes, I do read" instead of deleting my post.

He wont post just to say he reads the posts, I'm pretty sure he's active... at least more active than we thought he was.
when the hell will be somethik new in this game ????

Never, crawl back under your rock.
And from March 2010
Eric is very active and a very friendly person.

And I'm sure that we will see a next patch. Maybe not today or next week, but it will come. And it will be LFS the best again, and all those nubs who said they will never come back, will come back.

A very impatient person, I wonder what he would say in two years.

Quote from AMB :+1

Haha epic posting lads. :surfing:
Only thing I'm sure about is that Eric doesn't care about his reputation
Quote from rockclan :Eric is (...) a very friendly person.

His only post at the forum proves the statement.
Quote from Amynue :His only post at the forum proves the statement.

He does more then most of you might know.

do personal bests count? which even after 6 years playing, i still manage to get
I am wondering, if the devs could post some screens of a Westhill update process. In this thread, Scawen said, that they want to finish and release Westhill updates, so I assume they've already started to do so. Plus, the FZ interiors should be nearly complete, so some screens would be goodd, too.

Maybe the updates are not so big for us to recognise them, who knows
lol, your memory when coming to these things is... huge.
The changes to Westhill are that it is being bulldozed and turned into a shopping centre.
It will however, have a large carpark for those who like 'cruising' to park up with their mates, and do donuts, handbrake turns etc.

Well, from time to time, I am browsing through some older posts from Scawen and I've just looked at this one

From the thread:

"I've noticed some discontent about the rate of progress and all I can do is assure you that no-one wants LFS out of ALPHA more than we do! Of course, by updating and releasing the clearly unfinished things mentioned here."


But yeah, I hope they finish Westhill and interiors.
It does seem odd we havn't seen any of eric's work for ages. I really hope they are saving things like the updated interior's, westhill updates and any new cars for S3 along with rockingham.
