    RLR - Live for Speed

    This is mainly for Bee.

    Bee if you'd like to post race results and reports in this thread then maybe if we get new members they will consider getting LFS and join your league.

    Just a though.

    Ah I think a nice little copy and paste jobby will do well here:

    (Taken from LFS.net)

    LFS S2 is a serious racing simulator. No arcade modes, no steering aids - YOU have to do the driving. It is therefore highly recommended to drive the sim with a steering wheel, because even though you can use keyboard and/or mouse, a wheel is what you use in a real car, so a wheel should be used in a serious racing simulator. Especially when going online, where fast reactions are required.

    In S2 you can race alone or against the AI, but the real fun is to be found online, in multiplayer mode. Racing against real people is simply the best thing and LFS makes it easy for you to do so. There are also several online racing leagues you can take part in, if you are looking for something with a more competitive edge.

    A serious simulator obviously requires a very good physics simulation to provide the thrill and fun of real racing. This is done by simulating all aspects that are important to racing. LFS S2 is the second step towards our vision of what the sim must become and already does a very good job in simulating real racing. Many racing aspects are covered - comprehensive setup possibilities, fuel usage, tyre wear, a lot of different surface types, intriguing racing environments, different car classes, etc. All these aspects make sure you have enough to practise with and spend time on learning the flow of the tracks. Additionally, don't forget to plan your pitstops - find out how much fuel your car uses on a track and how are your tyres behaving on any track, with your driving style. All aspects you will have to think about in real racing and as such you need to think about them in S2 as well.

    S2 is a significant improvement over S1; important features have been added. For example dynamic camber (improved simulation of suspension and different suspension types), highly detailed tyre physics and a damage model have been introduced. Also the additional content in S2 should be noted - where S1 mostly contains the 'medium' fast cars and tracks, S2 introduces several 'fast' classes (and 'slow').




    Plus, you get to race me, which is always fun. ^^

    Yeah with LFS you really have to learn the game, you can't just pick it up and play. I'm the oppsoite to in.s@ne in that I had rFactor, but couldn't play that for hell because I was too dialed into LFS.

    Rfactor is a good game but I haven't installed it to my new pc for the reason that I just didn't understand it. I only really raced Meganes and had alot of fun but to me it was a crash-bang-wallop racing. If you can call it racing.

    rFactor is a lot of customisation.
    Favourite mods: Aston Martin DBR9 Racing; CTDP F1 2005 Season (they haven't released any others yet); Drift Revolution


    I'll see what LFS s2 is like if they still release a "free version"

    Enjoyable game, but swingman view is bad. It's not ideally suited for gamepads.

    My cooker is bleeping at me so im going to go eat some pizza.
