    I remember the Dark Saturday Massacre, when on January 14, 2017, there where open fired bans on multiple users at once, causing a ripple effect sending people into panic, we have lost many great members on this day, we remember:
    -FluffyOreoCX
    -Fen
    -Benjamin Tam
    -mms
    -Modem
    -55Buick
    The reason of this mass attack on the innocent members was unclear, until Nadeox1 stepped forward to say that they where spamming the wiki with full Wikipedia pages, some containing NSFW content.

    Found A Russian Mod? Try These Questions To Determine How Russian It Is:
    1. RUSSIAN MOD?
    2. STOLEN MODEL?
    3. LESS THAN 5/6 OF THE MOD WORKS?
    4. EVERYTHING SHOWS UP?
    5. MISSING FILE(S)?
    6. MOD AIDS FROM OLDER GAME VERSION?

    If questions 1-3 are answered Yes, the mod is barely worthy of the forums, if you answered 4 No, then the mod obviously needs more work and should be in Beta or Alpha not WIP Released, if 5 and 6 are Yes, this mod may be unstable and is NOT reccomended for use

    If questions 1-3 are answered No, your mod is ready to be released, if 4 is answered Yes, your mod is capable of being WIP Released as long as 1-3 are answered No, if you answer 5 and 6 No, then your mod is likely stable and is reccomended for use

    This can help determine if you should release your mod or not.... In case you need a reference.....

    I do overpost, and, if you didn't realize that already, my signature may give it a that I do sometimes post awkwardly long posts, even though some may just me full of garbage, anyhow, if you have any complaints that have to do with my signature, don't bother, that's why there is a warning at the beggining, if they are any other suggestions or complaints, feel free to message me and I will be happy to ignore your post or return with a sarcastic comment. And, when I say I post some garbage, it's not garbage like noob spam, it's just normal spam, anyway, this signature is full of garbage that is unnesicary and should be removed, but, I don't bother as I enjoy having a reason for people to say 'I accidentally hit your open signature button, and...' As I find that hilarious that it has basically exploded their screen.

    I have helped write the BeamNG Movie 'The Traitor' along with FireStriker and help from BeamNG movie God FrlzErls. It should be done something this year yet it may even take longer. If you have any questions about it feel free to ask me or anyone else mentioned in this paragraph, we can't give spoilers though. Sorry.

    Yeah, if your wondering, the project is basically dead, no, I dunno if it's going to be revived, sorry

    Here is a script I wrote, if you've read this far you deserve it

    Firestriker and his friend have some time left over to return the bolide they just Repossesed, so, they go to the local drag race where the street racer (decked out in a FIRE Orange hillclimb SBR4) challenges them. Firestriker loses (oh, did I mention the race was Pinkslip?) and has to turn over the bolide, which he does. That gang member sees the street racer with his bolide and attacks him, steals the bolide and SBR4, then leaves. The street racer blames Firestriker and his friend for giving him a wanted car, which goes against the rules of the street racing club, the street racer, being a jackass, blackmails him with that and makes him help him get his car back before the Drag Championship in 2 days. Firestriker, his friend, and the street racer all go to FireStrikers tuner friend, who lend them with cars he has lying around in the shop ( Race sunburst, rally Pessima, rally ETK I series) and goes along with them (Covet ZXi) to the Desert (Bajarama, Baja hills, Utah) and attempts to find the thief. Firestriker the gets himself in a trade, where he has to win a race around the Bajarama circuit in order for info of where the thief is. He goes against the d35 pig and wins by a nose. The d35 tells them the thief is on his way to his hideout in Utah, so the now impromptu gang is d icing along Baja hills when they find that they are being followed by a convoy of three black GMs and a black roamer, a chase style scene breaks out and they neutralize the three black GMs, the street racer crashes his race sunburst but Firestriker jams the roamer against the guardrail and forces the occupants to speak, they give Firestriker and the gang the exact location of the thiefs hideout (the old factory). They them take the roamers occupants clothes, phones, guns, and other items and disguise themselves as fellow gang members. They all drive to Utah and stop a mile from the factory, they leave the covet, I series, and Pessima and get into the roamer to attack the thief. When they get there, they see the thiefs convoy leaving, along with the SBR4 and bolide of tow trucks behind it. They attack the convoy and take the thief hostage. They bring the tow trucks (forcing the drivers to follow them) back to Firwood. Where the street racer gets his SBR4 back, the tuner gets 2/3 of his cars back, and the repo guys (Firestriker, Johnson (me)) get to return the bolide and get paid for it, and the thief, well, he drives off in the stolen roamer with some very strong warnings....

    Nature Documentary: The Curious Kerr
    Watch the majestic Kerr in its natural habitat, gridmap, it sees its prey up ahead, a flock on pigeons that have come to feed on the stray node remenents of a long dead H Series. It moves into position, ready to strike, it's blending in camouflage engages, but, it sees something on the horizon, the Kerr is not alone, a herd of wild D Series have begun to chase the pigeons, the Kerr must decide to strike now or later, it goes in for the kill, chasing after one of the pigeons which has fallen behind its pursuers, the lone pigeon honks its horn for help, but no use, the pigeons only defense is strength in numbers, and alone, it is as good as dead. The Kerr pounces and leaps onto the fleeing pigeon, unable to avoid it, the pigeon is just another victim of the wild Kerr

    The Kerr will glitch into the pigeon as it is then able to bring it back to its pack, dragging the body along, the Kerr often eats most of the nodes on its way back to his mate, who is waiting with its calfs. The common Kerr dwelling is in tunnels, which make it harder for large prey to attack, often multiple flocks will live on one tunnel at once, here, there are over 27 different flocks, one of the largest recorded formations

    This Kerr will never get to rest, as it will spend almost all of its adult life hunting, as he drops off the food, he turns, gives a honk, and goes back out on the hunt, soon, his calf will learn to do this too, as by as little as 9 months of age, young Kerr calfs will hunt with their fathers

    Yet, this Kerr is still on the solo hunt, and this time, his flock is very hungry, and the Responsability lays on him, as he is considered the alpha male of the flock, he must bring the most food to sustain leadership, this time, he needs more food than just a pigeon

    In the distance, not far, is the vast land of gridsmallpure, a common nesting place for hearts of wild sedans, often living amongst each other, as most sedans are herbivores, they have no reason to attack one another, the Kerr does not have many places to hide, so, it will use its primal camuflauge to stalk its prey

    There it is, an I Series has wandered stray from its pack, the Kerr will move closer until it is able to reveal itself and pounce, but the Kerr must be weary, as there are more than just sedans here, a herd of T Series have moved in recently, and have warded off any attackers, often killing them, then leaving their corpses on the edges to discourage more predators, but the Kerr is cleaver, the T series will only attack if it feels threatened, so he just has to keep his distance....

    Pounce! The Kerr has left onto the stray I series and has delivered a killing blow to the driveshaft, as the herd of sedans leave, a t series not far turns and charges the Kerr, the Kerr must make a bold move, get food or run

    The Kerr grabs as much as it can in its glitch and runs, the t series in hot pursuit, in one pounce, a t series could destroy anything in its path, the Kerr has the advantage, as it is able to go much faster, the Kerr is also much smaller, and can hide in places that the t series can't get at, that's exactly what the Kerr does

    This Kerr finds a tunnel to hide in, and let's the t series pass, this Kerr will have to go back out now, after bringing only the bumper, hood, and engine of its I series prey, it has also lists its alpha status, which will go to the next dominant Kerr

    May 2016-June 2017
    I left because of growing spam, lack of much actual activity there, becoming less involved, and everyone ignoring everyone there, if you are a member there and is reading this, try to make a difference so that everyone enjoys it, and don't leave like me, maybe I will go back, only if things improve, until then, I'll be a ghost around there, checking in every so often, but not leaving a trace.

    WELCOME BACK CAR 8. JOHN OF THE BEAMNG ROLEPLAY GROUP

    I rejoined cause honestly there was no way that the community would get back together without my help, it went from a new post every few minutes to once a week, and no one else was successful with fixing it, after I rejoined, I somewhat fixed the community, it's nothing like it was when I first joined, but it's running a lot better than it used to, if you can, please join us in the RP community and help keep the RP spirit alive
