    DISABLE MODS before reporting!
    Please disable all mods and check again before reporting issues.
    That will help us a lot focusing on actual, real issues, instead of going after problems caused by mods.
    Thanks in advance!




    We would love to hear your feedback on the newest update! :)
    Please also keep the non-contributing discussions to the bare minimum, so that we can help users in need more effectively.

    Notes
    • Issues with UI / Black Screen / UI Lag | Please check the first notice in the 0.16.0.2 changelog (click).

      1. You can toggle the experimental 'Hardware Acceleration for UI' in Options > Graphics.
      Disabled = Slower but more stable UI.
      Enabled = Faster, but chance of issues on certain setups and some bugs. Experimental!
      Requires a game restart to apply.

      2. If you are on Windows 10, and are having performance issues with the UI, make sure 'Game Mode' is disabled, as it can cause performance issues due to how it handles the game's processes.

    • Fatal Vehicle Exceptions / Vehicles not loading / Floating camera| These are very commonly cause by broken/outdated mods see below for a list). If disabling mods does not help, do a clean reinstall (see below)
    • Official Levels not loading correctly | There is a chance that you have some leftover files / folder on your document / BeamNG.drive / levels .. folder that can cause trouble
    • If you encounter crashes with AMD GPU or Intel Integrated GPU , you can help us to debug the issue on this thread here
    Known Issues
    Blue = Important Green = Fixed Orange = Known issue Red = Under investigation

    • Default vehicle not using custom licence plate | Fixed for next update
    • Missing sidewalk parts in East Coast USA | Fixed for next update
    • Intel HD 620/630 Series crashing on vehicle reset | Investigation into the source of this issue is ongoing as a matter of priority but we do not yet have an ETA for a fix.
      Help us gathering more information by following this: https://www.beamng.com/threads/debug-branch-to-collect-crash-data.64556

      (Solution #1) - Use CTRL+R to reset a vehicle, instead of just R
      (Solution #2) - A temporary workaround solution is available here
      (Solution #3) - Turn on the FPS Limiter seems to reduce the chance of this (suggested by a few users, not confirmed yet)

      Some users have suggested that this issue is caused by some specific Intel drivers versions. You could try to update / rollback drivers and see it that helps
    • Crashes on AMD Radeon 5700XT | Not confirmed yet. Try disabling UI Hardware Acceleration, or older drivers.
    • Skins cause artifacts at lowest settings on old iGPUs | Under investigation (Update to latest driver seems to help some)
    Mod-related issues
    • Better Sounds Mod could break the game. | Remove and Clean Reinstall the game. Then wait for compatible version.
    • Parking Lights mod breaks the game | Remove/Disable and wait for compatible version.
    • Seasons Pack partially break some of Eca textures
    • Fiction Police Livery Pack can cause the game to freeze when loading the Gavril Grand Marshal. Remove/Disable and wait for fix.
    • Any mod that modifies game's core files could potentially break the game | Remove these mods and wait for compatible versions.
    To report broken mods, use this thread or contact the author's of the mod directly.

    This is, without a doubt, the greatest update of all time.

    Kudos to the BeamNG team! :)
    --- Post updated ---
    BeamNG seems to insist on running the x86 version instead of the 64 bit version, is there a way to fix this?

    Humble Bundle claims to be 0.17, but the last update was May 23, and when you download it, it's still 0.16.0.3 or whatever.

    Someone internally mentioned there were too many blue cars in the selector, making it confusing, so we changed it ;)

    I have a problem. After updating to 0.17 the game has NO sound.
    I tried mute and unmute, restart the game, restart the computer, clear cache verify integrity & safe mode. even deleted my entire user folder, but in vain

    The christmas tree on the West Coast drag strip no longer functions when you're not in a scripted drag race. This might be intentional but it would still be nice to have without doing a scripted race

    When I try updating the game it works okay at first, however at some point the updating freezes completely and following that my entire computer slows nearly to a halt. The computer remains slow even after I cancel the update and I had to restart it twice. Any solutions? (I use Steam)

    In ECUSA, the roads don't appear and my car falls right into the water. Also, I can't delete the traffic tool.
