New Version 0.6G
Dear Racers,

You can now download a new update of Live for Speed with graphical improvements and support for the Oculus Rift DK2.

The main visual improvement is related to objects with transparency, such as trees and railings. In most cases we have been able to improve their appearance a lot by using a new drawing style.

We are also drawing the cars using a more efficient method which helps keep the frame rate high, specially when there are a lot of cars visible.

The Oculus Rift support has been well tested and received a lot of support from people who have been able to try the new DK2 headset. It is a lot of fun being able to look around the cockpit of your car or the world you are in just as you would in real life. The sense of scale is something to be experienced!

Read more about the patch and how to get it on the 0.6G information page.

Eric, our artist, has been continuing work on the new Westhill track that we announced in June. After the Oculus Rift DK2 was released, our programmer Scawen ended up spending many weeks supporting it, causing a delay with the Westhill update. This gave Eric more time to work on the scenery to a higher level of detail and he has made the access roads driveable. It's a lot of fun driving around the whole track area, in an open configuration, when you have some time off from racing and feel like exploring a bit. Scawen can now focus on optimisations and other programming support for the Westhill track. We estimate a few weeks until release.

You can see some screenshots (from June) of the new track on our screenshots page.

You can upload it to http://lfsbench.iron.eu.org/ as well now.
(or well, not with standard settings .. but 0.6G has been added there.)

I'm scoring a bit better in the minimum and average, but max fps remains the same : http://lfsbench.iron.eu.org/?c=COMPLETEMAX&from=&sort=0&sortinv=1

[OFF-TOPIC] Is LFS Benchmark is maintained by the official LFS team ? It seems to be un-updated for a while now...

confirmed working !

only thing is. scawen said you do not need to update with textures to F12. 0.6G comes with textures .. :/

gonna rename some files now

@scawen. i got a wish for future releases.. in the menu where you select multiplayer, the window mode goes on by default when going to serverlist. can this by default be set to "NO" so it dont go to windowed mode? (off topic)


EDIT: some screenshots of rockingham i think is so distorted i cant tell what track it is... just thought i let you know.
Strange, torrent download isn't working properly - stops at 99%!
EDIT: At 23:33 it suddenly finished the download.
cant w8 for the new westhill

No it can't be set to NO by default. There would be no way of knowing if windows\firewall\antivirus is blocking any ports or such when you are trying to go online. LFS would just look like it froze.
Quote from Udris1992 :cant w8 for the new westhill

if you can't, you are going to have a bad time :P
I just had a blast on my nearly 10 year old machine and it runs beautifully

However, for some reason im getting a strange OTT bright reflection off the car, it didnt do so in 0.6F so i can only assume its something in the update thats causing it, i have attached a screenshot of what i mean.

System specs if needed are, intel 521 p4 2.8ghz, 4gb ram, win7 x64 ultimate, radeon hd5450 512mb GPU

Thank you LFS Developers!

Question - does the dk2 support include head tracking?
Quote from danthebangerboy :However, for some reason im getting a strange OTT bright reflection off the car

Interesting, I don't get that sky problem. Do you have custom textures installed? Do you get the same issue on other tracks / weather settings?

As MandulAA said, mine has also ended alright at that time. A ratio of 3 at the moment
