LFS Live For Speed

Live For Speed

Extracted from LFS website: Life for Speed (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 simulator 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 practice 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 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.
