I totaly agree with you , If it wasnt for the mods and tweaks LFS would die long time ago at least for me... With the new Tweaks that were released from a special dude who know his way around lfs tweaks i would kinda quit lfs and waited for that update. instead i can do various things (do a Branded engine setup, change the size and way of tyres etc) to keep me entertained in lfs.If im not mistaken i think everything can be modded except the tracks and shape of the car (actual aero shape not just looks) .. Tyres have been modded aswell to other specs.
Personal opinion i would be happy for just some more Real tracks.
Being in the Real life racing and owning a race car i can gurantee that LFS even if it stays stationary it is actualy spot on. LFS actualy tought me how to drive , i my self dont even believe that i can drive they way i do JUST from lfs, and if they actualy wanted more money BEFORE the update i would happily give them to them.
As for Werd's statement i agree on that too, Just some statement from the developers and then let it be discussed from others.. no need for more answers to question that will be deffinetly be asked (beacuse some men are too greedy) i could ask questions and requests to the devs till i die but i wont cause im way to happy with tis astonish simulator... Although they dont even care what we say. So just some words every 1-2 months would be great and lock the thread. no need for others to join the thread and start the usual..
More personal attacks?
Can't you disagree with someone without being abusive?.
No I don't think it would be out of order, and I never have. You attempted to falsely assign that point of view to me in your post (#51) - that's your 'straw man' right there.
That's pathetic - go and find any posts of mine where I say I don't want updates, or S3 and post links here. Otherwise, stop making false claims.
I'm arguing because I DO want S3, updates and progress reports.
It's the people who make endless demands and constantly criticise the devs that caused the progress reports to dry up.
I also think that all the negativity towards Scawen and his development approach can only reduce his motivation, making S3 take longer.
...mind you, If you actually read my posts instead of making false claims about them, you would know that already right? so you probably didn't read this far...
Even longer? Well thats something not to be expected is it?
Who cares about Scawen anyway, Eric isn't producing anything either. Something more important; tracks. How hard can that exactly be?
It's not the motivation of this three which is at stake but the motivation of the community which should be a concern. Progress report isn't of any use too.. You cannot come up with the same story every year. I never seen a worse example of non communication before by the way. It's almost art.
Hopefully it goes better in their personal relations
I don't know about that picture thing. I don't click on off topic titles. I just give my opinion and I try to do it structured. It's not that I'm trying to bash, but if you say to a community 'shut up, let me live my own life do that with yours too'.. Three years ago... Thats fine... But dare to say that now too. Then we all know we can start to leave this 40 year 'project' alone.
Devs have always said they make LFS because they want to.
In terms of whether we get a new LFS update and how long it takes, I reckon that the devs motivation is much more important than the communities motivation.
Agreed, a progress report is useless if there's no progress to report.
But if that's your view, then it's contradictory of you to then complain about non-communication. If there's nothing to report, how can they 'communicate' without releasing the same report multiple times ?
It seems like they're damned if they do and damned if they don't - now there's a motivation killer if every I've seen one.
they did? The only people I remember complaining were those alien fast drivers that didn't like all those unrealistic new corner combinations (=those they were not alien fast at yet). Else the community created a dozen of new configs in no time, other did Airio paths for them, everyone agreed on an "official" namecode and so on.
Those people creating content and addons for free, evolutionazing LFS (I'm watching you Lynce) get far too little acknowledgement from the Dev side.
