buedi, i know all this hype about ac is making a proper lfs'er doubt ac's physics. Now once you finally decide that it's worth giving a go you'll understand that in ac you feel a well better connection with environment then in lfs.
Right, that doesn't really explain physics, here it goes to satisfy your urge to understand the base of ac physics before testing it out. Follows. You have a more realistic, more filtered ffb at disposal in ac. This will make you use stronger ffb in your settings and this will also make you go for a smoother drive. All this is in fact making it more realistic and in touch with the car.
Of course this still doesn't give any hint of physics, it's just environment, the car and the force feedback. Well, explaining physics if for Newton not me, so you'll have to give it a go to feel how the tire pushes into the ground anyway as a long time fellow LFS'er I'm by far satisfied with what AC's got for us in store and the amount of fun I'm having hotlapping is on par with LFS from many years ago.
One lovely feature AC has is whilst building the set there is almost a small guide to every lil part of the car what it does either way you turn the wicker.
Once again, don't get into this hype too much. Judge for yourself is it worth. If I was to rate it in simply physics department I'd say only that debounce of car from curbs needs little bit fixing to reach the level of LFS.
Hold on, here's an interesting comparison. It sort of feels like you've got slightly touch more grip in understeer and slightly touch less grip in oversteer compared to LFS and personally I feel this is more realistic from real life too. Karting every single car out there shouldn't really be the quickest way around as it is in LFS and AC does that brilliantly. And as extra bonus all the realistic tracks have realistic chicanes and realistic curbs everywhere so not every other corner a lacking curb will annoy you and again it brings us to the in touch with environment segment. So it goes on and on, round and round.
What is really the question when it comes to if it's worth the wile is the multiplayer that we're all so willingly awaiting since hotlapping is such beautiful GT cars and real tracks is magical and you've got the best AI at disposal to pass the time until then.
It's also lovely to get involved with all LFS'ers in here and many quick quys from other sims as well. AC might be very well bringing that leap forward that we all so very much deserve and you do not want to miss none of that. Take my word for it, you'll enjoy it for as long as you enjoy chasing laptimes and then for as long as you don't figure all the AI flaws and if you really like it until you find all lovely cars and figure the best of tracks and chase laptimes again and we're in the loop it goes round and round and this why we so very much love new content. Oh gosh I've wrote a novel here. Well if you've got this far, thanks for reading this. Was my pleasure to share this with you, because it is very very exciting this ac and you surely want some of that.
