Live for Speed - Online Racing Simulator





joshdifabio
I doubt any of you reading this have even heard of Live for Speed. However, if you like motor racing or are a car enthusiast or just like racing people, you should give it a try.

Quote:
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 play the sim with a 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').

So where can I get S2?
You can download S2 ALPHA P from our download page
This download will initially act as an S2 demo, allowing access to 3 cars and 1 track environment only. If you want to access all the other content, a license must be bought. Please see the 'Read Before You Buy' and 'Buy Online' pages for more information on licenses.


It has an amazing community of active and friendly racers, not to mention the devs who post several times a day replying to peoples' ideas and bugs on the game etc. There are new patches released regularly to solve any problems people find, and the devs are part of the reason Live for Speed is such a popular sim. You should try out the demo if this sounds interesting anyway, you can race online with 3 of the cars on just one of the many tracks (with four configurations) for an unlimited time over the internet against other demo players. For the best experience though you should buy a license and test yourself against the hardcore players like myself who have the full version Smile.

Thanks for reading!

Lol i'm gonna try it.

Btw. is there a legal way to get the full version free?

It's going waaaaay to slow.

Instead of 250 kb/s its going like 45.

Any good links?

If got like 4 downloading, but the fastest one is going like 50

There isn't a way of getting the full version for free legally no. The whole points of LFS is racing people online anyway and since you would need to use your account to do so you wouldn't be able to race online even if you did hack it.

I need a better download link because the other one was going waaay to slow.
