I give up Why can't the devs just say a definite yes/no if the patch is getting released before New Year this year?
Then I could just stop having faith towards LFS, and forget about it. Now, we don't even know anything. Seems like Victor is still alive but Scawen? Obviously he isn't away, because he was posting in the CPW thread, so he could have told us the answer already...
Does it matter anymore? It would have been cool to have a new car in LFS at the same time it came to the real world but adding it now its just... awkward really to be honest its just a fwd hatch anyway lol
Damn... playied LFS for the first time in months today. Bloody hell it's still amazing in car behaviour. They just feel so natural with G25. Scawen, rly! You've made an amazing sim! Thanks for all the time I've spend with it! I believe in You that we will get this patch, but trust me, it will be much better if You would post a little more news on this forum. I know, You think it's pointless, but it's not for me and many other people! Just spam the forum once a week, like: "Tried something like this, didn't work, doing fine, had good lunch today" ^^. Seriously , it's that simple and it makes a huge difference for (i believe) 20-30% of the people. Take care mate!
So, this thread is now about people which have left LFS for something else or people which still believe that LFS S3 will be released "next friday, don't worry" .
The truth is LFS is pretty much dead since its devs never promoted an official tournament or something while we were and are waiting for the new patch.
From my point of view that's a good way to make people run from your business and be "angry" with you.
No matter how optimist are some people. There is no sign of progression in the patch nor any partecipation of the devs in the forum (in b4 anti cheat system updated bla bla bla) .
At a certain point i think that honesty is the best way to deal with an unsatisfied community since those updates should have been already out by a while.
But then tomorrow i am going to wake up and thing why am i continuing to consult this forum since even me can't believe that something will move in a short time and no one will hear my (and other's) worries.
Alltho I don't agree on all parts of this post, it has some points.
For example, even if the work goes on as usuall - nothing to report, the developers could interact more with their fans. They could host a league, championship, events etc, to keep in touch with their fan base. The LX event hosted some time back proved to be a huge success, and that is what the developers need to do in times like this.
Sure, we can bitch and whine all we want, but it won't change anything. The developers have their way (who most of their fans disagree with) of developing the game, and I don't think we'll see a patch before 2011/2012, but that does not mean the game have to seem dead.
Come on Scavier, entertain us! Host a league, make a fun quiz competition or anything, interact with your fans more, that's at least what I want.
Again, there are allways those who will completely bash the game no matter what you do, don't listen to them because their not the mayority. But please don't punish everyone by letting the people be left out in the cold without dialogue / information / contact between the userbase and the developers.
