Honestly, I wouldn't be to concerned for the development for LFS, It *looks* pretty dead, Even though there is stuff we cannot see happening, I'd say just toss it onto another disk drive and play it when you are bored, I find it's fun to race every now and then, But I think it's mostly the community's fault, For instance, If i make *one* mistake, in cargame, Anywhere, really, I can instantly get called a noob. (Possible in a racing simulator?) Idiot, Or various combinations of "retard" and "blue flag" And in several different languages.
And secondly, LFS doesn't do Pay to play.. So their isn't really enough funding to update as much as they like, Like Iracing for example, They can crank it out all they want, Dev team is huge, money coming from everywhere.
I'm still left clueless as to why LFS chose a 3 man team ONLY... Like.. Wtf?
