It is with great sadness and broken hearts that we got known that RoBear passed away over a week ago, Wednesday 31st August, at the age of 78.
Former teacher and bus driver – which he was still doing – in real life, RoBear joined the RC servers a decade ago, when it all started for RC.
By his activity, his desire to help newcomers and actual players on our servers, he ended up being part of the Reality Cruise staff, in which he was really appreciated, and climbed up to Administrator rank.
He was one of those true cruiser that was enjoying the driving, without being at full time flooring the throttle.
His presence, his good humor, his good advice and his good jokes will be greatly missed on the server.
We send to his loved ones and his family, in particular to his grandson Stormer (seawon) who used to be an active player here, our deepest condolences.
Thank you for everything you brought to us in here. Rest in peace Robear.
PS : His family opened a gofundme to participate in the funding for him, since he didn’t had any kind of death insurances or whatever. We don’t force you to participate, but it would be greatly appreciated for him, more especially that he used to participate in the payment of the RC servers in the past years.
since 07.01.2022 we support the new LFS version 0.7A with official LFS mods. At the moment both servers are S3 only to be mod-compatible.
Our coder xspeedasx wrote the insim code from scratch, that’s why it took us some time to open the server, and the reason why some features are still not implemented/fully working. Please report any bugs you come up with!
We also wanted to announce that everybody is starting fresh again, this is something we always had in mind and thought there was no better chance than now. We hope you have fun again growing up your stats!
Since the insim is not exactly the same as before some of the website information might be outdated, we will work into it. If you have any questions feel free to ask any of our members online!
So grab your UF1, start doing jobs and fill your garage with the new cars! 🙂
Christmas is back here in RC!
As every year we have switched to the Xmas mode already, and Santa is ready to give you some special gifts starting on December 1st. For more information about the Advent calendar check the forum thread Advent time 2021.
Hopefully we will be hosting some random events too such as job competitions, races… those might be published soon so stay tuned!
The UFB (UFR + 45% intake restriction) made a comeback today in our servers. Since LFS now allows it to have road tires we thought it would be a good time to bring it back, and here it is!
Please note the UFR has to pay a track fee, which is easily recovered doing a couple of jobs 🙂
In case you need a setup we updated the zip file including the UFB setups in Downloads.
On 10th March we suffered a downtime in all of our servers and website due to an incident in one of the OVH facilities:
— OVHcloud (@OVHcloud) March 10, 2021
Because of that, all the sessions were lost and cannot be recovered.
Since everything was completely down, we took the chance to migrate to a new hosting, which we were planning to do anyway in the following days. If you experience any issue please do let us know.
We are really sorry for the inconvenience!
On 28th February a new LFS version was released. It required both host and client to update to this new version in order to play online.
Since last night all of our servers run on 0.6V and we are ready to accept connections again 🙂
For more information about this patch please check the official LFS site.
We will be celebrating Christmas at RC with some events this year too!
Advent event is currently running, and apart from that one we will be hosting some special events starting on December 22nd (provisional).
The full list of the events, their (provisional) schedule and all the information you need to know about them, please visit the forum thread 2020 X-Mas events.
As we are in that time of the year again, we have updated our servers with the following features:
For further information check this thread.
We will be migrating all of our servers to a new and upgraded hosting within OVH.
This means there will be some downtime in which you will not be able to connect to our servers.
To save all sessions, or at least try to, we will be shutting off temporarily server #3 and Events server today. Tomorrow (Thursday 16th July 2020), server #2 will as well be shut off whenever it is empty. When only server #1 is running, we will save the sessions right before the migration, which will occur on:
Friday 17th July 2020 at 22:45 server time (21:45 UK time)
This way, all sessions running will hopefully be saved and be ready for whenever the servers are back. However, we cannot guarantee that the sessions will be successfully restored.
Please note that the process will take some hours. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
This year we will host again some interesting events to celebrate Christmas at RC!
Apart from the regular Advent event currently running, we will be having some special events starting on December 21st.
For a full list of the events, their schedule and all the information you need to know about them, please visit the forum thread 2019 X-Mas Events.
