Live for Speed versione 0.6Q

Recommended Posts

VELOCIPEDE

Il team di Live for Speed ha finalmente rilasciato una nuova versione aggiornata del suo ottimo simulatore. La release 0.6Q porta con sè miglioramenti al supporto delle periferiche di guida, alla grafica e persino alla VR, con l'implementazione realistica degli specchietti anche con l'uso dei visori VR. Qui di seguito alcune immagini ed un trailer esplicativo.
 
Today we are pleased to announce a new update with graphical improvements, better controller support and more. The main graphical update is a new system to simulate the mirrors realistically. Each mirror's image is drawn from a separate reflected location, so the interior mirror looks out through the rear window and you can see the sides of your car in the side mirrors. In VR and other 3D modes, a full stereoscopic image is generated for each mirror.

The lighting system for cars has been improved and your own car's shadow is now visible from internal views. Multiple controller support is simpler to use and you can now easily select a single controller from a list of connected devices. Steering wheel rotation is automatically limited to the correct angle for your selected car.
In "Free view" mode there is a new "walk" option that allows you to wander around in the environment with the view point maintained at eye level. This was designed to help with our development because of the unique view it gives, specially when used in VR mode.

Changes from 0.6P to 0.6Q :
Mirrors
Mirrors are now realistic and your own car is visible
A separate viewpoint is used to draw each mirror's view
Minor updates to some car models to improve visibility
Mirrors now use the same LOD setting as the main view
Mirror angle adjustment is now possible (in View Options)
Increased vertical adjustment range for central mirror position
Mirror offset sliders only shown if a car has a central mirror
Added a "Default position" button to restore moved mirrors
Increased virtual mirror width from 0.3 to 0.333
Virtual mirror is now available in follow view

Graphics :
Improved detection of nearby objects that should be shadowed
Your car's shadow is now drawn when you are in an internal view
Improved lighting on tyres and drivers (noticeable in dark places)
Corrected downward ambient lighting colour (was too bright)
Slight reduction in near clipping plane distance

Free view (SHIFT+U mode) :
Free view is now shown as an option in the Escape Menu
New walk mode which is good for wandering around in VR

VR :
Mirrors now use a full stereoscopic image in VR and other 3D modes
Mouse look in free view mode in VR avoids pitch (stays horizontal)
Rift errors "display lost" and "HMD not present" shown as message

Controllers :
Exit controller screen warning is not shown for real ESC key press
FF device is automatically assigned (if two or more are connected)
A single controller can now be selected (if two or more connected)
LFS tries to move force feedback wheel to centre when car is reset
Button and axis numbers now start at 1 (affects /button and /axis)
Assigned arrow keys work better (e.g. movement in free view mode)

Force feedback steering wheel turn limitation :
In your wheel settings use a large turn amount e.g. 900 degrees
In LFS Options - Controls set "Wheel turn" slider to match that
In LFS Options - Controls set "Wheel turn compensation" to 1.00
You should now find your wheel is correctly limited in all cars
