Quote from majod :i dont understand why there are bunch of people posting and making threads like "i havent been here for a thousand years, is there something new?"
all answers are on the forum and lfs homepage

posting threads saying what I said would only clutter the forum more and I was kinda being half sarcastic
after all the requests and hopes of the comunity he could have implemented the car and use standard lfs physics without the complex scirocco ones until he would have fixed everything..
Hey I've loved LFS for 9 years soon!
Scawen can you please cure me, because i can't really help it with trying any other sims.

Simply the best LiveForSpeed!
Quote from dekojester :.............
When it comes out, the new stuff will be welcome, and surely will affect how I run NDR's leagues in some yet to be seen way.

Aye then everyone will be scrambling to adjust to new physics etc / I find this period of stability (regarding LFS updates) most rewarding, Ive learnt to master XRT finally, which had its own slight CoG changes a while back (during balancing of TBO for those who dont remember)

People forget that until this time there was constant Changes to the model of physics used in LFS and somthing always felt different. I say to those who have moaned is "you dont know what you got, till you lose it"

@ dennis, Doctor Al says "your condition is incurable and will only get worse when the update comes"

One can only wonder if that were true if most people had raced iRacing & nkp before LFS..

Yes i know... And i kindof hating the Scavier team for it, it's ruining my social life!

I think if LFS showed up now, with everything as it is, it would still become popular for the same reasons it became popular back at the end of 2002 and continued to become popular. No way would it be quite so successful though, there was nothing like it back then.

It has an ease of use and simplicity that appeals to me. The menus are vast but simple because everything is easy to change at any time, and online works so well- even a total pc novice would find it easy to get in to a server and join a race. Combine this with a relatively cheap price and physics which, even their current state are a joy (despite apparently in need of huge time consuming fixes), and it's a product I would happily buy and use.

I'm envious of people just discovering it, really. I remember when it all felt so fresh and new
Maybe it the tactics, Rfactor2 comes out soon. And who wants to play his Ace card already too early.

Wait and see, and if nothing appears to me no matter LFS's still the best.

One of these days I"ll log on the forum and see that the glorious Patch TEST Forum is back up again.

One of these days...
I think a patch will be realesed from 18- 30 december, if there will be realeased. I think in this time because they are realeasing patches from 20-30 dates so we can hope

P.S. SORRY MY ENGLISH SUCKS
Quote from Udris1992 :I think a test patch will be realesed from 18- 30 december, if there will be realeased. I think in this time because they are realeasing patches from 20-30 dates so we can hope

My guess goes for a test patch, with at least 1 month of testing before the oficial release
My guess would be, test patch in spring of 2011 (april or may) and 2 months of public testing.

Considering Scawen hasn't reported anything about carcass development, I take that as it itsn't finished yet. After 20th of December, I expect Scawen to stop working and be with his family 'till new year. And if carcass isn't finished, it means the VW stability control, suspension updates and limited setup system aren't finished either and knowing the development history I'd say they'll require quite a time.


Unless Scawen silently finished most of that and is preparing a test patch for us to test in christmas while he is relaxing.

That would be the COOLEST THINK EVER

I don't post much these days. After the first years there has been little to talk about. Progress wise.

And hopefully it won't become "Racing Legends":
http://www.west-racing.com/forum/index.php?topic=2987.0

That's right, the forum is still running in spite that six years ago they said "Sorry":
"We value the interest you have all shown in the project greatly. We just throw ourselves into the work and forget about everything else going on to get this out as soon as we can so you can actually make your own minds up about what we are attempting."

Maybe they are still coding it and are having so much fun that they forgot the crowd waiting outside in the cold. Waiting for the promise that never came.
Lol
latest update:

New Update

LOL!
In a nutshell
My dream is like this:
The physics patch is released, and shortly after that, a ton of content is put on sale.

It'll happen eventually.
Will I be too busy playing something else to care?

Does it really matter?

NO! Everybody will be dead by then )
I'd be surprised if Scawen even makes another post on the forums this year.
Well usual procedure is either a progress report or patch over christmas, either would be gratefully received i think.
He would say "there is nothing to Report."
I can understand why he is so quietly.
Better make big Projekt as big Words.

And evertime i look at LFS, i can say its the right way to make a "Perfekt" Car allround Physics, then the Content, its much easyier to add new Cars & Tracks to the Sim as in other way.

Another friday
nope
