Quote from sinbad : but Fern Bay just captures that "style" of circuit so well, the layouts are excellent, and I would drive those tracks in any sim.

Fern bay is just filled with stupid chicanes. I could never get the fascination some people in lfs have with that track. Tbh I don't miss any of the lfs tracks. To me lfs tracks lack literally everything a nice race circuit has. The long kyoto track is kinda nice and as4 is mostly not horrible but for driving pleasure lfs tracks are just bad. For online racing the lfs tracks are fine because they are basically just as wide as they are long and being so easy to drive. But for sheer driving experience they are most just meh.

Like westhill. Is that even a race circuit? Blackwood? One long straight combined with totally forgettable 90 degree turns. Aston? If it was any wider you could hold land speed record runs there. How many of its turns are not flatout? Kyoto2? Rovals.. I can't remember the last time I even used that word. It was probably in iracing when they did not have enough proper race circuit for the road cars. And in lfs one of the best road courses is a roval. Kyoto3 is kinda nice but again there is that chicane. The rest of the track is very nice but overall any corner of suzuka beats any corner of kyoto.

/rant.

(where did that one come from?)

As for the forum.. you can set your Steam profile to hide literally everything from people that aren't on your friends list (or even people that aren't you) without breaking the AC connection.

It does.

Quote from dawesdust_12 :You're obviously fine with LFS requiring online activation.

Correct, thats once and doesn't require all kinds of side effects like friendlist sharing.

Funny thing is, that if you have an hacked version you don't have to go all through this, you don't need Steam and the only thing you miss is an official forum which you also can't be active on if you refuse to 24/7 associate. So in the end you are better of with a hacked version. Bravo!

Quote from Eclipsed :Except it updates itself whenever it wants and you have to launch it and have it connected whenever you want to play any game. What if I don't have internet connection for some reason? I cannot access ANY of the games I have payed for,sound fair to me.

There is offline mode... You aren't required to have an internet connection. As for updating, you can tell games to not update unless you want them to.

Quote from cargame.nl :It does.Correct, thats once and doesn't require all kinds of side effects like friendlist sharing.

So why are you connecting to the LFS forum? It's sharing your IP address with this server! Even the AC server is sharing your IP address. Connecting to AC servers as well shares your IP address! SO MUCH PRIVACY INVASION.

Idiot.

Ever heard of VPN?

Reported you for insulting.
Quote from cargame.nl :Ever heard of VPN?

Who are you hiding from to be so evasive with elementary things such as registering to a forum? Only those with things to hide tend to be that evasive.

Forgive me for pointing out that the pot is a pot.
Quote from dawesdust_12 :There is offline mode... You aren't required to have an internet connection. As for updating, you can tell games to not update unless you want them to.

Oh,then it was totally worth to lose those gigabytes of updating steam itself with my limited 3G connection (ye ye,I know,that there should be internet police,who should shoot anyone who tries to connect to gaming world with 3G)! As for updating - you CANNOT limit steam from updating ITSELF! It wants an update,it makes it,he is the master,I have no decision abot my computer in this case. How fantastic is that? As for updating games - some of them (like AC) still start an update even with updates disabled. And some of them you cannot even launch without updating them - for example I bough Civ5 year ago in gameshop in a DVD. Could I just install and play it? NO! I had to install this steam $#!t AND download an update from it,otherwise I could just throw out the disc. There was no information about this requirement anywhere on disc. Fantastic service,love it!

The general idea of selling games online and offering download is very good,but why the firetruck they have to shove their own shizzle in my computer too?
Quote from dawesdust_12 :Who are you

I like to be in control of what I want to share or not share, at this very moment I shared here my personal experiences with the whole system of buying a product and being NSA't on an official forum. I claim it backfires in a way it actually promotes hacked versions. Now you can be angry about that because it contradicts your Steam fanboyism but these are your own personal limitations.
I guess with unusual setups, you might have problems, but for literally 99.9% of the gaming world, unless you have irrational paranoia, Steam is pretty much the perfect service for PC gaming.

Also: Offline mode doesn't require Steam update (obviously).

Except you're not in control. You're giving yourself the illusion, but you use the internet so your privacy has already been invaded as your packets route through hundreds of routes as you connect to various servers around the internet. We know that the NSA has done mass data collection at network routing points.

Plus, who cares? What are you trying to hide that you feel like anyone gives a shit about what you do? Unless you're doing illegal things (which I presume due to your evasion), you're not that interesting.

Get over yourself...
Quote from cargame.nl :I like to be in control of what I want to share or not share

well, time to get off the internet, and throw away your phone, tablet and any other device that has wifi or any other internet connection.
Quote from dawesdust_12 :you're not that interesting.

I am otherwise there wouldn't be such a big fuss about it. You must be tracked because you are not interesting! You know which population also was being tracked during 40-45?

Pretty much this..

Your argument is so poor that you have to invoke Godwin's law.

Ridiculous. I think I would have more intelligent conversations with a metal post.

I was reading this "conversation" in dead silence but that last sentence just threw me off the line

I have exactly the same thoughts, in the future it might be the best if you ignore my posts, thanks for your cooperation.
Quote from dawesdust_12 :Offline mode

Yup,perfect solution for all the problems. (except the thing,that you're disconnected from everything else you need too)

Leagues? I wonder how the league admining can work if there are no admin tools,neither also possibility to check replays. Of course the next update will solve all problems,as you can trust on updates being brought right like planned.
setting FFB strength to 107% instead of 101% in the profiler did surprisingly much regarding driving feel. Why's that?

btw, blisters here I come

Looks like you could use a pedicure.
Wow 0.6.2 is completely unplayble for me. Having enormous stutters every second..
Quote from Test Driver :but..... but..... tyre deformation!

AC has tyre deformation, it's just not graphical.
Quote from Boris Lozac :Wow 0.6.2 is completely unplayble for me. Having enormous stutters every second..

You need GTX660 2Gb or better
Every other track and even 0.6.1 work very well. I love the guy's work but he could do some optimizing

If it comes to that point, do you think Phenom 965 and 4Gb of ram could remain so i just update the graphic card to that one?
This thread is gold.

Wouldn't hurt to upgrade CPU and RAM too, PC upgrading is like a car engine tuning, GPU is like a turbocharger, you don't get the best results upgrading only one component.
