Jesus Fordman, fix your graphics settings and learn the track . I love Oulton too, and the Nordschleife is exactly the same style, just a lot longer.

This mod version is getting to a high standard now, impressive how solid it looks. Still some fishy surface areas but generally really good.
Quote from Fordman :
Now if you say, Le Mans, Brathurst, Thruxton, Oulton Park, then I would be pissing my pants, but the Ring..just doesn't float my boat

Its narrower, hence more exciting providing adrenaline. Then add that out of a 155*? Corners barely few are second gear and youre really starting to raise. So its narrow which makes it seem fast and its and its really fast in some parts too. Now if this isn't enough its tight with curbs guarding it all around and even there seem to be some straights they're curved too. It keeps you going so hard its becoming a thrilling experience this ride. It even enhances it with cambered corners at places or tries to kill you with road falling away from you. And then you regularly get blind, of course corners and can't even see where you're going. You've got to keep your eyes open baby, no fooling around. It keeps you on the edge where a racer belongs and then it throws you a bone (2nd gear corner) giving you some hope after a while to remain on earth, but no it quickly changes its mind and you're hanging for you're dear life yet again. Not only that its incredibly vast it has unique corners such as miss hit miss or wippermans or really anything after the kurrassell to the straight and I can clearly see parts of lfss very own Aston middle sector inspired from there.
Bottom line is it offers so much that even this little can't be found out in a day or two. It dares you to seek more and you know you want more, you always do.
Some people are okay with medium difficulty, while others seek to challenge themselves with the highest difficulty possible.
Modern Le Mans is one boring ass track in my opinion. The high speed first section before the straightaway is quite alright, but after that it's mainly just dull chicanes and 90 degree turns.
The challenge of modern Le Mans comes from the event, not from the circuit itself (IMO).
The Nordschleife is also pretty unique because of it's inclines and declines, and the big variety of different road surfaces / types of asphalt. I think, hope, that the laser scanned version differs a lot from this homemade tryout. Although it's quite smooth now it starts too feel like arcade instead of a challenge. Would be fun if the Steilstrecke also gets unlocked.. Its drawn on the minimap.
Niki, it's completely up to personal preference. I rather much prefer tracks that are <1 minute, hence why I compete in the RUF Cup in iRacing, because that's where I get short, tight but technical tracks. Not that they are easy, they are just a place for extremely close racing and possible overtakes. It's really up to the preference, and as I prefer those shorties, I will never praise Nords in any way. It's cool and stuff, once in a while. Not something I'd drive all day.

Pretty much, you can have an awesome race at the ring with just a handful of cars or even 1 on 1 which is easy to organize with friends, but LM requires nearly 100 cars of different classes to be anything but a doze fest.
Nordschleife is just so fun to drive. I drove it first in gpl 16 years ago and it was fun then and still is.

Le mans is just big flat meh.

It's a good placeholder until the full IOM TT Course is finished in GPL (still being worked on - last update was April) and then converted.

Kristi mate that is just soooo gay.

Just because you're not willing to accept the fact that someone doesn't love the almighty Nordschleife.
Quote from Flame CZE :Just because you're not willing to accept the fact that someone doesn't agree with you.

Fixed. Also this could be the motto of LFSforums...
hold your bazookas, apparently if ur not in vires u have no sense for gay jokes
I can't disagree with that - since Joonas Koskinen Vires has enormously turned to another direction regards these jokes. Still, I'm not a pussy for loving sprint tracks, because they provide racing. That sounds ideal to me.
I'm with Fordman. Don't get the Ring, never have.
lol

Hi All,

I (we T7R) now have a dedicated server provided by MHS Server's. I am just doing some more testing/tweaking to the config file, and then I will open it up ( I mean provide you with the password )

Is there anywhere that says what car groups there is ?

Also just to confirm, does the pitbox problem still exist, i.e. if you have say 40 slots but only 24 pit boxes, some people crash out of the game?

Cheers

Fordie

PS - Yes I have downloaded the Ring
You don't even know what Ring is, that's a completely different matter :P
