Quote from Nadeo4441 :Actually, with the current tyre model, your tires heat up while drifting very fast, like in 2 laps... I'm used to drift until they pop... (and that means soapy) It's very annoying to pit after 1-2 laps.

Quote from yeager :And yet quite accurate. I used to drift a lot in real life on real tracks (mostly Silverstone) and two full laps of Silverstone on full throttle, sideways, will most definitely pop your tyres...

Uhm, accurate? You're not required to pit every 1-2 laps in LFS because of the tire wear (except with FZ5) but because the tire grip is non-existant if you want fast entry speeds with high angles.

I do agree that the tire wear is pretty spot on with the FZ5, but you can drift waaaay too long with the GTT on current tire physics.
Probably because popping is simulated when a tyre point reach ca. 200 C, and the tyres become soapy way before this point. I certainly don't know any tyres that are heated to 200 C, they stay at a lower temperature and pop because of wear, not temperature (mostly).
Hmm, you might be right. FZ5 might simply be heating the tires up to 200c in couple of laps instead of actually wearing them out, which causes a pop.
indeed

hi guys,

I didn't play LFS for almost a year now. Are there any news about the release date of the new tire physics + vw scirocco?
Check this thread's first post
Quote from Flame CZE :Check this thread's first post

and then wait for Scawen's 4000th post which will be full of patches.
yeah but the post was written the 25th November 2009 so I thought there are some new information.
If there was some new information, there would be a new thread by Scawen here or at lfs.net.

What he said, since he was quicker.
Quote from three_jump :I'm on page 36

Stop trolling.

Everyone knows you want to show more posts per page.
When is the scirocco finally going to be in the game. I've been waiting for almost 2 years now :s
ekoj a si siht

The VW Scirocco is going to be released on 18. 10. 2010, at 10:42:21.147 UTC, so be prepared to download it. And do not forget to convert this time to your time settings, so you won't miss it
This is where it starts.
This is where it will end.
Here comes the moon again.

Lol you are just playing with me... Because seriously the launch was more than a year ago. I understand that things can go wrong and they need some time, but more than a year? How many things can you change, more work on 1 car than on the whole game...
No no, they are not working only on the VW Scirocco, but mainly on the new tyre physics.

Yeah okay I get that, but don't they have a date they think the VW will be released. I'm sorry for asking, but I guess everyone is waiting for it.

See what happens? That's ALL YOUR fault! You jinxed it! :chairs:

Haha, my questions will stop now. I will just have to wait patiently

wild guess but it would seem like overheating the tyres doesnt increase wear like it probably should with the rubber disinitegrating at high temperatures and comming off the cord in chunks
on the whole id say that the tyres become more or less useless after 1-2 laps of drifting is quite correct
Quote from Scawen :Hi there.

I'll "break the silence"... though I do think I said something quite recently.

it's true that I don't do the same hours that I used to in the early days, when LFS was my hobby, my passion and my work all in one. Now it's more my work, I have other interests as well and there are now other things in life that are more important, but LFS is something I want to be proud of. Something that I want out there and being enjoyed.[...]

There are many excellent programmers with that passion for LFS, many of us had seen in different places great mods, add-ons, and things like that, my question is: why don't you recruit some programmers and physic engineers?, there's a lot out there and maybe 2 or 3 more on the developement team could make bigger things!!!
We all love the passion of early days, that's why we play this simulator and try to contribute with ideas, or simply bringing new players to the game

ps: sorry about my english, i hope all of you can read this message as is, with a lot of excitement and expecting big good things for Scavier, and of course, Live For Speed!
Quote from Miodo :(...) my question is: why don't you recruit some programmers and physic engineers (...)

That's been suggested time and time again, and Scawen has stated time and time again that that is simply not going to happen

Your english is better than that of most native english speakers on this forum
