Live for Speed is an online racing simulator developed by Scawen Roberts (game engine), Eric Bailey (tracks & cars) and Victor van Vlaardingen (music, website, sales). It's main features are the realistic physic engine and internet multiplayer with up to 32 players. The game is only sold at the official website Lfs.net. You won't find it in any shops as the developers want to stay independent from any publisher, so they can include exactly the features they want to have in the game and do not have to change the game according to some manager's opinion.

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 some 'slow' ones too)

Dear Racers!

I'd love to give you some news!

New version of Graphic Override mod, this time with even more override!
The biggest news is new Bokeh Dof working amazingly good with HDR and default bloom effect of ENB series mod.

Next news is even greater performance! Up to 15% more FPS with highest shader sampling quality compared to 3.0 version and even more fps comming in "standard" versions.

This time i am going to give LFS more cinematic look in "Ultra quality setting" and better sensation of speed in standard versions.

Stay tuned

If you had actually played LFS, you'll know it's impossible to modify the graphic engine; this guy stole things from a guy called Lynce who made many texture packs & videos, plus some ENBSeries settings on the web, and he call all this a "Graphics Override?"

Don't be fooled, and I wonder why would IndieDB even accept this page to appear?

Been playing this game since s1, it's one of the best racing sims out and works fantastic with a sim wheel.

Looks good, I'm tracking this game!
But, looking at the tons of "test" patches, to me it looks like still in beta.
