TEST PATCH 0.6G14 - New Westhill Circuit
WARNING : THIS IS A TEST

NOTE : THIS DOES NOT CONTAIN NEW TYRE PHYSICS

PLEASE TEST BEFORE YOU POST

NO OFF-TOPIC FEATURE REQUESTS

NO UNRELATED COMMENTS


Hello Racers, here is a new TEST PATCH : 0.6G14


EDIT - WE HAVE MOVED ONTO A NEW VERSION :
https://www.lfs.net/forum/thread/87573-TEST-PATCH-0-6G17---New-Westhill-Circuit


It includes the new Westhill Circuit with additional configurations.

This test patch IS NOT compatible with version 0.6G
This test patch CAN play hotlap replays from version 0.6G

You cannot upload hotlaps made with this test patch because it is only a test patch, not an official patch.

Please keep a backup of your LFS.exe from 0.6G so you can easily go back if there are any problems.


Changes from 0.6G to 0.6G14 :

Westhill :

New version of Westhill with additional configurations
Full support for open configurations including access roads

Autocross Editor :

New adjustable concrete objects
Custom start positions and pit start points
Maximum autocross objects increased to 1500
Movable start lights included as an autocross object
Pressing S/F/1/2/3 when object is selected now moves it
Pressing S/F/1/2/3 when object exists is now more helpful
Clicking colour instantly changes selected tyres or chalk
Clicking marshall position instantly changes selected marshall
Improved the appearance of marshall circles in the editor
Route checker index numbers now start at 1 instead of 0
The W/E keys instantly adjust width, no need to press M
Floating object buttons shown with different colour
X/Y/Z positions are now shown and can be typed in
Right click on X/Y/Z to move in steps of 1 metre
SHIFT+click to snap to 1 metre grid

Tracks :

Increased max cars in race from 32 to 40
Increased AU Autocross grid from 16 to 20
Increased BL Rallycross grids from 24 to 30
Regenerated lightmaps and visible object lists on most tracks
Added paths at Fern Bay to cover road near Club and mini oval
AI drivers hit wall entering pit lane at SO Classic / Town
Removed a corner marker from some configurations at Aston
Some tyres at Kyoto National disabled in other configs

New commands :

/zero_all
- Reset all lap counters and checkpoints passed as if the race had
just been started. This removes checkpoints passed.
So using this command on the first lap, before the first
checkpoint is passed, has no effect. After the first
checkpoint there is an effect. The first lap will not be
counted. This is intended to help with a rolling start after
a parade lap.

/setlap username X
- X is positive : Set the lap that the user is currently on (as
seen at the top right, not the number of laps completed). This
does not affect checkpoints passed. This may help with a driver
who reconnects after an unintended disconnection.
- X is zero : Same as the /zero_all command but for one driver.
- X is negative : subtract from the number of laps, without
affecting checkpoints passed. This may be useful as a penalty.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS :

A FULL version of LFS 0.6G (or later) must already be installed


To install the PATCH using the SELF EXTRACTING ARCHIVE :

1) Move or save the patch into your main LFS folder
2) Double click the patch to extract it to that folder
3) When you see "Confirm File Replace" select "Yes to All"
4) Now you can start LFS in the normal way

NOTE : You can see if the patch is correctly installed when you run
the program (LFS.exe). At the bottom of the entry screen : 0.6G14

Amazing work Scawen! Cant wait to see the official patch! This is amazing! Well done dev's .. I think LFS has just been brought back from the dead! Smile
So far looks amazing. Haven't got a glitch yet. The access roads are incredibly fun to explore with a friend.
Amazing!. Is this intentional? (see pic)

Also, on the behalf of the drifting community, thank you for the karting tracks! Big grin

Cant wait for official patch!

#6 - nacim
This is torture, I can't test new Westhill until tonight (I'm currently at Disneyland Paris but I want to go home now Big grin ).
the westhill is AMAZING!
#8 - 187.
Server files?
Just one word: Unbelieveable! So good, well done!
Found an bug tho, colorchange on hte concrete walls cant go back to white after you changed the color.
This is amazing! A heaven for all of the LFS community (racers/cruisers/drifters) and all connected with those small roads.

Devs, you really outdid yourself on this one. Thanks for that!
Sometimes textures does not load in time (tested on open config)

Top work. Have been wanting this for so long, seems hard to believe its actually here now.

Anyway, found one thing that bugs me, the stop signs near the new roundabout are very buggy, they slingshot you out if you drive into it.
We have a Sync error on the server. With 40 people on track, sometimes 70% of the people on the server get the OOS error at once.



SERVER NAME: [TC] Events
only one thing to say WOW
ScaViEr the best!
Stunning !!!!
You did a great, great job guys !!!!
Quote from Scawen :

Tracks :

Increased max cars in race from 32 to 40
Increased AU Autocross grid from 16 to 20
Increased BL Rallycross grids from 24 to 30

With the grid size increase, would it be possible to get a connections limit increase (55ish, so the same number of "extra" connections?).

Looks really great all around. Smile
As a suggestion, could the config roads be marked with thin lines along side with the track line itself?



As you can see, we have stray arrows of people who are on the awesome back roads Smile

Absolutely top notch work! Great job guys!
Awesome!

When do we have all the tracks like that? :P
Its installing right now!! Cant wait to try it!!!
purely amazing
Thanx it looks great finally some tracks too learn again Smile
