Quote from Danke :If the devs threw up their hands and quit right now, it could turn out for the best. Especially if they published the track file format.

You can try to make your own rally pack or something while waiting for the patch, it's more creative than endles pressing F5 buttton

It's a pain that I can't publish it. Would make as all forget about 0.6A for some time. I can only imagine how much fun would it be to play online with 32 peoples at track... tons of dust....cars flying around at T1.... and overal madness :ernaehrun
yeah, the rally pack.... *sigh*

(another lie)

Is it meant to look crap?

There is something wrong with the shadows when you change the surface. I wasn't trying to make it look nice too.

Did you just change the texture, or really the surface?
Man, if we could change the surface...
Are you kidding?
Nope, he's not. Amynue is pretty awesome with this stuff.
Mint drift there!
Agreed .
Not bad, but I'd prefer to have current rally tracks made fully tarmac.
they need to fix all the texture bugs.
Fok the textures, release it !
Yes, we can make our own and use them until the devs fix the original ones
Quote from Amynue :You can ask my AI drivers, they went bananas...

Interesting.. And if you rename the WLD filename to AU... Would it be possible to drive this modified track online if all clients do the same? Looking Big grin
If everyone using the same .WLD file it will work for everyone. You can play with modified .WLD files online, but it will cause strange stuff.

For example: Driver A has the fix barrier .WLD file, while driver B doesn't. Now, when the A hit the barrier it on his screen looks ok and doesn't send him airborne, but on player B's screen the car will still look like it flies high for a second before the sync is established correctly.

It's the same as car modifications, you can drive them online but the others won't see them - but feel them if they hit you (hint, spacetrip).

I think if someone use dirt track modification, it will look horrible laggy on the screen of the others. It will probally work but again, there will be big sync issues.
What TVE said. Track modifications for some reason work online and releasing them would be dangerous, expecialy the fully tarmac BL Rallyx where you can easily beat the WR without any decent driving skills.
If it wouldn't work online it could work same way as Kamkor's Steering Lock Mod and then I would be able to release it. People with the mod wouldn't be able to enter "normal servers" and vice versa.
Actually I could make a simple app with Cheat Engine which would change the track AND weight of every car by 1kg or something which would make it incompatible with "normal servers", but it would be still dangerous as Cheat Engine doesn't encrypt its files and some with average hex editing skills could take out the track data and make the online compatible version
Any smarter ideas? :S
Release it after S3.

That cheat engine would look a little like LFSTweak,only with more power to modify.I'd say contact the admins/mods.
Quote from Amynue :...

All this is just amazing, but If you release it for public use it will f**k up the multiplayer, especially in the demo servers IMO. There are already enought mods (like *.vob or desert, winter etc.) which make the racing sim., to look like GTA.. Just wait for S3 (if ever come) and have fun with it.

(spoong) DELETED by spoong : because I don't care about lfs any more. No progress.
Hmm still waiting

Haven't been playing lately but checking up on it every once and awhile.

In a perfect world, would there be more than one world?
