Reasons why you should try Live for Speed in VR
Hi there,

I've been meaning to make this video for a while, since my job involves Virtual Reality and I've recently been able to pair this with my love for sim racing by purchasing my own Oculus Rift.

I hope this video gives you more of an appreciation of why the devs opted to spend so much time implementing VR in LFS and I also hope it gives you the itch to try it yourself.

If after watching you have any questions, or anything else you'd like me to explain, please leave a reply or drop me a PM and I'd be happy to advise.

I'm no good at video editing so it's just a 1 take clip. I hope you enjoy it.

Cheers

I tried the first version of the Oculus Rift a few years ago, it was fun (but wasn't in LFS). What stopped me from getting one was just that I always seem to drive with my mouse in LFS, do you know if that gives motion sickness? I won't be buying one anytime soon, but maybe next year.

Very informative video, good job.
8:32 "Get your PC upgraded"

... LFS still has a problem, a CPU problem. I have a 965M but the screen is lagging on various spots because the CPU cannot handle it. Well, it can handle it, it's just LFS which doesn't make use of today's multicore CPU capabilities. It's a bit of a shame that LFS doesn't run smoothly on my i7 3630QM, it is not that this CPU is very old, its LFS which is very old in handling multicore CPU's (it basically doesnt handle it)..

If LFS doesn't get this problem sorted with multicore CPU's then I do not think it has a big future for the masses which want to try VR. The early adapters of course all have massive desktop systems but the bigger part doesn't have this. Sure a graphics card can be upgraded, but a CPU is more difficult. Especially when it is not needed and its just the software making bad use of the capabilities.

Excellent video mbutcher. It's nice hear factual reasons why people like or even dislike a piece of software.

Thanks for that.
You're welcome, thanks!
great video. Love racing in LFS with my rift
We should race some time! Smile
