Nice work as always
Quote from CrAbStEr DrIfTeR :One thing I was wondering, Could you perhaps get in touch with Bluewind (creator of the extra objects for Blackwood) and have the croud stands etc included with a test patch?

In my opinion, The extra objects are fantastic! I think this would be a HUGE improvement to the game with not so much work needed as the objects have already been created and just need adding to a patch

I have never heard of them. Can you tell me where to look, so I can see what the extra objects are?
Home run.
Quote :or InSim programs that can add or remove objects.

woohoo!

Scawen, as you said this will be multiplayer incompatible and you have some other things in priority. Does this means that the next patch won't include this? (I am happy anyway that this is being worked on, just saying)

Also if every single object will be available to all track, i wonder how the object list will be, maybe sub-categories?

I bet there will come official "mid-patch" in 1 month. Before that, few test patch might come

thats my bet
Quote from Scawen :I have never heard of them. Can you tell me where to look, so I can see what the extra objects are?

I am not sure, but maybe he means those objects, which includes bridges, buildings, lamps. bushes, ambulances, longer barriers etc... As I have seen those used in youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XlMxYVEfBf8

Lol, altough we do not need any gas tanks or lamps! (And lamps only, if night racing and light implented. For example, F1 Singapore GP where is the race @ evening, so lights have to use).
And what we really do with ambulances on this simulator?


EDIT: Sorry doublepost, I forgot to add this to earlier post
EDIT: Sorry, that this vid includes .vob modes, but that's not mine though. Just tried to find a quick example

Quote from CrAbStEr DrIfTeR :go on lfsdrift.com

go on layouts part and look for bluewinds layouts.


EDIT : its blackfinch's layouts pack - ebisu is in there for car park (and other needed thing)

Although he means lfsdrift.net not .com
And here is the topic that i found http://www.lfsdrift.net/layout ... (update!-newest-ver-1-2)/

But im quite sure that this mod was made by Henrique. One disadvantage on this mod is that makes any non-moving object like barriers, movable...

EDIT: Master beat me ,but I found some more things
Quote from Scawen :It will be multiplayer incompatible

I reckon this means mpr-format will be altered?
If so, would it be possible, you let me/us know, in what way (e.g. which packets are affected)?
Quote from avetere :I reckon this means mpr-format will be altered?

I think it will be incompatible because of the objects, same with the mod i posted above its not compatible online(unless host is using the same one)
/\ that and InSim changes for making public the packets that manage the AX objects, as LFS already have them, but hidden for internal use only.

I'm talking about an incompatible test patch in this run of test patches. I expect the next test patch will include this. But maybe not, if I do some other compatible fixes first (e.g. enabling physics on some track surfaces where you can fall underground in open configs) to be tested along with the tyre contact detection fix. It's possible those could be tested in one more compatible test patch before the incompatible one.

Quote from avetere :I reckon this means mpr-format will be altered?

No, it's just that the new object numbers would make old guests have all the wrong objects and missing objects, so they would go OOS. Same with the enabling of qualifying. So I just have to add something that forces incompatibility - does not allow Z33 and previous versions to connect.

Quote from Whiskey :/\ that and InSim changes for making public the packets that manage the AX objects, as LFS already have them, but hidden for internal use only.

LFS has them but InSim does not - InSim has all its own packets, and does not yet contain anything for this. The new ones will share the object structures from the existing LFS packets and the layout file format. Of course I will add documentation when I add the packets to InSim.

Buildings, Tree's, Grass, Croud Stands, ADVAN bridge on blackwood...

Loads of new objects also including the ambulance & other things... The only bugs where that the objects list went off the bottom of the screen and the red/white barriers fell off the track and into the underworld when they where hit and it was only available on blackwood (new .wld file).

Was fantastic for making layouts!

The barrier battle bug: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WeQsTr6HYyk

quick layout i made with the objects: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v ... -Qi6E&feature=related

Was released over a year ago :P
Well, I was not too far from the reality
Thats great!
will the new layouts mean they will need to be remade or is the conversion going to be guaranteed?

thanks
I have 0 unlocks left and I would like to drive with z28 to upload hotlaps..
What should I do?

(Sorry if asked already, in a hurry atm..)

I am looking forward to this too
Quote from BOSCHO :I am looking forward to this too

I don't think those objects will be included into the official version. I understand it like this - all current objects will be available on all tracks (for now).
sorry for offtopic.
Lessons from Scawena.
Lesson 1: How to remove tire?
See the screenshots. And see how distorted the rays in such a situation.

And so on, if Scawen fix this system tire contact with the objects would be even better and the car will not fly into the air. I reported this several times mentioned)

OH-MY-GOD, look at the last photo the forces.... thankfully it will be fixed in the next test patch
I have a simple suggestion for drift community...individual wheel coloring!

not only for drifting,

for racers also.. skin wise..

front to rear

side to side..

Quote from Tur8o :will the new layouts mean they will need to be remade or is the conversion going to be guaranteed?

Most objects are exactly the same. Some are optimised for graphics and physics CPU time but you won't notice the difference. Some are a slightly different size, for example some cones varied in scale at the Autocross track but now they will have the same size as they are on the other tracks. Some objects are different - I've made new tyres objects (single and stacks of 2, 3, 4) because the tyre objects were different at all tracks and were a special type of object that cannot be used in the common autocross objects file. I'm planning to add a colour selection, so any of the existing tyre colours can be selected, so your tyres can match the colour scheme at whichever track you are creating a layout for. Some objects will be new to the autocross object system - I plan to include the speed humps from Kyoto and the corner markers from Aston.

I am taking a risk here saying what I plan to do, so whoever reads this - these are not promises, but plans - and plans change.

But to answer your question : conversion should be very accurate, though some tyre stacks will only have a 40 cm radius instead of a 43 cm radius, that kind of thing, and slightly different heights. I'll generate (and manually edit) conversion tables for all the tracks so that pre-Z33 layouts will look up in the table which object number should be used, and which tyre object and colour should be selected, while they are loading.

Quote from Flame CZE :I don't think those objects will be included into the official version. I understand it like this - all current objects will be available on all tracks (for now).

Yes, I won't be including lamp posts and buildings. I see those guys had fun at the car park with their mod, but that's not really what the autocross system is for.

Now, no more questions please, unless you have some real reason to ask me a question. For example now I've just taken 10 minutes out answering questions, when I had actually sat down to continue working on the objects. When the patch is released, you can find out what's in it.
