i think it dont need to be open source BECAUSE the game could be restriced to scawen but what he needs is a Content development Team, this part need to be open source !
Its nice that Rockingham is laserscanned but one track after 1 year isnt enough ^^.I know It sounds hard and the new track is designed for S3 so he cant publish it now.
I know its not good for lfs to get rushed by so many new Tracks form the community but a little dev-team which takes a part of Track / Car development will be usefull.
Did anybody realize new Tyre Physik needs a new Road Surface ?
Its not done with better workings Tyres if we dont feel this on older Road surface. (hills, waves, cracks on road on very high detail as Orginal)
Maybee Rockingham Projekt try to get it very close to the orginal Road Surface. Maybe we feel much more Information about the Surface.
This coast a hell of time to make it 95% Real! Think about it. Yes maybe its not much Content, but it can be the absolutely realist feel we ever get in a Simualtion. I Trust the Devs.
No Sim is compareble with LFS and yes i Testet IRacing, its good but not Fantastic like the "older" Physiks on LFS
you're right. The feedback from the Car through the FFB from my Wheel can be better. I mean its hard to feel the Car, everytime if my rear breaks out the wheel does not announce it directly to me. The FFB gives a little restate but nothing more. so thats what i mean you never feel the reaction of the car, so as it in the real lives would be.
Edit: If youre right and scawen is mainly debugging this stuff, Scawen should tell us this then. IF we all know that scawen will fix this too we all could better understand that S3 will take some more time and i mean this can be ok coz he talked with us and let us know what takes so much time now
Sure, it would kill the original business model, but what is it that says you "can't" do it?
(I'm not saying I would like to see the devs opensource the code, but I don't understand your argument)
