Olden but golden racing simulation Live for Speed has been updated recently... check out the details and see what's been cooking behind the scenes... Unbelievably Live for Speed released to the public on the 13th July 2003, some 15 years ago, and while many games have come and gone in that time, this plucky sim continues to find itself in receipt of regular player activity and updates - even receiving a patch to bring VR to the title in recent years - a technology that didn't exist when the game was first released! Earlier this month another update dropped for the title, labelled build 0.6T, and again its a good one.. this time bringing plenty of improvements and updates to the game experience, all of which can be read about below: Version 0.6T Update Notes: Multiplayer: More robust method for connecting to the master server More informative error report for "Unknown file transfer error" FIX: Skin downloading now works with the protected website Layout editor: New layout editor instructions: docs\Autocross.txt New cut / copy / paste system using standard keyboard shortcuts COPY (CTRL+C) toggles between real selection and copied selection Place objects (O) key is equivalent to PASTE followed by COPY Move objects (M) key is equivalent to CUT followed by PASTE UNDO (CTRL+Z) and REDO (CTRL+Y) functions are now included A green or yellow outline is drawn around the selected objects ALT key can be used to temporarily hide selected object outlines Original objects are shown with a grey outline after COPY pressed Editor buttons and keys affect real or copied selection - not both PGUP / PGDN can now be used to adjust Z value of selected objects C key now clears selected object type as well as selected objects It is now possible to set marshall circles to have zero diameter Objects and marshall circles can now be selected at the same time Multiple object rectangle select CTRL+drag with left mouse button Start position / checkpoints / finish line now in control section You can hold SHIFT to keep objects selected when exiting edit mode Graphics: Slight reduction in some excessively bright driver models RAW files are no longer used and skies now use DDS textures Existing RAW files are converted the first time LFS is started Removed option to view sky in 16-bit colour Interface: New URL for skin uploads lfs.net/skins Text message dialog now has variable width Clip mouse to screen is now CTRL+M as CTRL+C is used for copy Command /axsel to copy layout editor selection text to clipboard Most translations updated.
