What the hell S.E.T.H. ? I must admit i didnt read the 4 pages, but i did read the first 2.......
Heres what i think:
For starters, i thing you are talking to soon about a game you dont even own ( yet ), and dont even know to much about it ( yet also ).
Second, you said you played ALOT of racing games, but oddly enough, you just started with LFS a few weeks ago.....LFS exists for a fairly number of years, and if you search for car racing simulator games on google, im pretty sure LFS will be there ( either on a forum or review or whatever ), listed as one of the best.
Shall i continue? ( retorical question, of course i will )
You ask ppl to be on your side instead of throwing you down, but yet, you seem to talk down to alot of "us", like you know something we dont.....and that tells me, from the start, you have no respect for "our" comunity, or the game it self. So dont ask us to do what you are not willing to do.
LFS is not perfect, and all the other sims around are the same, they all have flaws. Some more, some less. Only you can decide what to play. But, you cant base the hole experience on one simple thing that only you consider a flaw! Specially if there is a way to go around it ( wich there is, and someone already told you that ).
Im not trying to throw you down, im just trying to make you aware that your acusations are unfounded and a bit ignorant. LFS , to me , is the best there is in the racing simulator business, and i have tryed Rfactor, Iracing, GTR ( all of them ), etc etc..... If you take some time to investigate it better, you'll see it has a nice comunity, and that there is a diferent corner for everyone ( i mean theres diferent types of servers for diferent tastes ) , and i bet you that there are a few that enforce cockpit view, and other thing to make it more realistic.
Im sorry if along this thread you came to your senses, but as i told you in the beggining of my post, i didnt read more after the end of second page.
Just stop trolling go racing. If you dont like the "f" key view, dont use it. And if you are trully good, you will beat anyone with or without the "f" view ( wich noone uses by the way, just so you know.....). LFS has been here for years, and for us, the "old" users, there are much more important things to worrie about then a crapy F view. Dont think the developers where waiting for you to come along so they can change the system just for you....grow up.
I apologise if i sound a little harsh and if some of my sentences dont make sense, but i try my best in the english language
