Good news! It's much more smoother vr than the U610 !! To me, equal or maybe a little bit better than th U6.9 dll's. Constant 90 fps except a very few stutters in pit exit with 22 IA or on starting grid. Already have this ones with the U6.9.
As i'm new racer, i'm not ready with the multiplayer (the multiplayer racers are sometimes 5 sec faster than me!). So i'm using the IA to progress, it helps a lot! But very frustrating with the IA, because i'm rapidly 2 seconds faster than the fastest Pro IA since i learn the car and the track...
I know you are doing a lot and it could takes time, but is it possible to plan a IA strengh based on percentage and agressivity? For exemple the weakest IA like it is right now and the strongest (120%) close to world record. It could help a lot of new drivers to progress and enter progressively in the multiplayer sessions...
Again, this simulator grows like a good wine! Really the most realistic simracing vr experience!
Thank you for the VR test, Pistolero and Drifteris.
It's hard to make the AI faster because they are using the same physics and same grip, so it's difficult to give them the skill level of an experienced real driver.
But I have worked on them in the new tyre physics system and I think they are more challenging now. I need to work on the tyre physics after finishing some more graphical updates. I hope to release the new tyre physics with the graphical update.
Not a high priority request, but just in case you further work a bit on the AI, could you please fix it so the cars don't break suddenly for example when they come close to the wall in lap one in SouthCity and similar situations. More awareness of the player when overtaking would be needed too, so they don't push you into the sand pits.
LFS is such a great simulator, but racing with AI is not that fun until those are fixed. I always stay away from them for the first 1 lap to give them time to sort them out (if this makes sense).
Yes, I think it looks outdated too. It's like an old Windows desktop. I think maybe Victor could move each of the functions from that site over to the main LFS page, perhaps one by one. The trouble is he has another full time job so he doesn't always have much time for such things which aren't that high a priority.
Wow! That would make a lot of people very happy, yourself included no doubt
After all these years, it somehow feels a bit more real now that you've mentioned it so casually.
Fingers crossed it's soon (LFS is still my favourite sim in many ways).
Honestly I don't think it makes much sense for Scawen to implement a third party service like that, given the privacy concerns. Plus it's just work to undo if Discord dies at some point (whcih given LFS' longevity so far, it seems more likely that LFS will last longer than Discord).
I like Discord, but I think third party clients is the right thing for that kind of integration.
agree with you on this one.
LFS outlived teamspeak!
what i could imagine instead is.
LFS community developed some app or client for LFS to implement speech via ,
well whatever the community comes up with really. you will need a mic and some speakers.
some of you should be able to make such a thing. then devs can have a look at it and perhaps,
if they like it ofc, it could be implemented into LFS ?
honestly. im sure someone in this community is able to do that.
could CSR be a part of it? its got sound and it connects to lfs!
just a thought out loud.
iRacing has had voice chat built into the client for 10 years. It's not unreasonable (but not required) for LFS to implement it natively. A community solution seems unlikely to happen considering it's been 15+ years.
I am thinking all that would be needed, is have a single input text box for host to input an url to a standard discord link.
This would pop up, when first logging into the lfs server, and ppl would just click it and start talking... as it would load discord in browser or the discord program itself. This way everyone on that server would be talking together, using their own discord server, or a just a channel on an existing one.
