Live For Speed version 0.6N released

A new patch for Live for Speed has been released. Update V0.6N features a selection of improvements for VR, multiplayer, audio and more.

The LFS development team implemented a new “look and click” system which removes the need for a mouse to select menu items. Selections can be made via the space bar or a dedicated button. To further enhance LFS towards the VR headsets, a virtual keyboard is now available in the sim.  You can toggle the virtual keyboard on or off with the backspace key or dedicated button.

For the full list of changes, check the changelog below.
