    I'm having problems with the cameras, don't know if this was mentioned earlier.

    Driver cam gets stuck viewing in the rear direction (normal mode) and the orbit cam doesn't center (safe mode).

    Sorry if any of these were mentioned above. This is just a long post of things I've noticed.

    Mods were disabled, cache was cleared and files were validated before keeping track of bugs.

    Vehicle selector occasionally doesn't spawn-in focused, so I have to click on it to scroll.

    D-Series is missing previous parts. Namely, chrome running boards, chrome bed and body trim, black bed and body trim and potentially a few others.

    The new body-coloured door handles on the D-Series are named "Body Color" when every other body-coloured part is named "Body Colored."

    Controller inputs weren't working properly. Specifically, my indicators wouldn't work on any vehicle when I sent the input on my controller (Astro C40TR). I even tried remapping the inputs and verified that they still worked on my keyboard. Oddly enough, my headlights and starter motor (up and down inputs) worked completely fine.

    The Hopper's V8s still have incorrect textures and old horsepower values. It is also missing the new 6.9 V8.

    This is small, but the menu takes longer to load when backing out of a vehicle's configs.

    The D-Series seat height adjustment is broken. I originally noticed this on the prerunner, but I double-checked on the base D-Series and then made sure it still worked on other vehicles. (I checked on a 200BX.)

    There are duplicate D-Series configs. Namely, D15 Fleet (M). I'd assume one was supposed to be an older variant or automatic, but they appear to be identical.

    This may be intentional, but the K-Series Kc6tdx Driving Experience has base rear springs, despite having ttSport+ everything else.

    Again, a potentially intentional thing, but the K-Series Kc6tx has the base manual transmission, not the ttSport one. It doesn't even have the Sport flywheel. (Also, it has single exhaust tips.)



    My personal opinion on certain things:

    The tire squeal sound doesn't seem as dynamic as it used to be, making it hard for controller players to know how much grip they're losing.

    It'd be nice to see lightweight windows as an option on the D-Series and other vehicles, since it appears that it's becoming more and more common on cars. Also, I'd personally like it if the window nets were available on the more "normal" D-Series variants.

    The Covet update is highly appreciated, but now that 5-lug wheels are optional, it would be nice to see fender flares available since the majority of 5-lug wheels stick out on the Covet. Also, a lot of the engines (especially ones with Sport intakes) don't seem to allow hood exit exhausts. I haven't poked-around enough to see which do and which don't, but it'd be nice to see that as an option.

    I'd personally like to see more options carry over to other vehicles, such as: 5-lug wheels available on other 4-lug vehicles such as the Autobello and Miramar. Window tint (it would also be nice if there were varying levels of tint) on all vehicles. Also, adjustable race differentials on vehicles that don't have them available would be really nice. Lastly, (and I'd assume this most likely will come eventually) I'd really like to see older vehicles get updated to meet the current standards. Even if there's small "fixes" until they do, that'd be awesome. (For example, the race Bolide overheats after a couple of laps with a shorter final drive.)

    The last point I'll make is (sorry that this has turned into a suggestions post and not just a bug report) I'd personally like to see a revamp of the vehicle and part selectors. Currently, (especially with the D-Series) they seem somewhat bloated and overwhelming, and it can be hard to differentiate between "Early Heavy Duty Left Mirror (Body Colored)" and "Extended Heavy Duty Left Mirror (Body Colored)" at first glance. So, an updated selector (with preview images - and also possibly keeping the old one in case people still prefer it) would be nice.



    Sorry that I didn't get around to narrowing-down on some of the updated maps. I haven't exactly gotten around to doing that just yet, but I'm not sure if I'll make a post about the bugs that I find (if any) unless they're major. These bugs were just ones that I noticed in the first few hours of playing after the update.



    Overall, the new update is great. It adds a lot of great content that'll add hours upon hours of gameplay just choosing between them all and customizing vehicles. The new D-Series variants are really cool (yes, even the D15 Farmhand (M) is cool) and the Covet update is awesome (especially for someone who's favourite in-game car is the Covet - namely, yours truely). Plus, the added detail in the headlights, bed and other parts on the D-Series (and other vehicles) really make the game feel higher quality overall.

    This update was awesome and I'm looking forwards to future hotfixes (and entire updates) pretty eagerly. 2020 kind of sucked, but at least this BeamNG update (strongly) did not.

    don't know if this is where I should post this but if anyone is having issues with the glass textures (taillights, windshield, etc.) on the D series, search for gavril_eng_pack.zip in your mod folder, if it's there remove that and it should fix it

    as for the update I absolutely love it, I can finally make a pro4 truck without the use of mods

    Found a little bug on WCUSA. Also, if I go to freecam, the road's textures are looks lie this (2nd picture).

    And If I press shift + c to the freecam, and press it again, the camera bugging, cant move it.

    For me and my friend, the BeamNG mobile steering wheel app is completely broken in-game. It literally doesn't do anything. None of the inputs translate to the game. I've tried it on safe mode and still nothing happens.
    This is a real shame, as I do not own a steering wheel and the mobile app is the main thing I use for driving. :(

    Just here again to give some creds to the devs about that tire physics change.. its so good now. Such a huge change and really looking forward to that blog post about it! Cars are steady in a straight line, overall much more predictable, feels just great :cool:
    Using a Logitech G920 btw and drifting is a breeze now :rolleyes:

    So, an odd bug I noticed:

    In the parts values for the D-Series Prerunner parts, the Double Wishbone Independent Front Suspension ($10,500) and 4-Link Live Axle Front Suspension ($12,500) have perfectly reasonable values, while the 4-Link Live Axle Rear Suspension ($150) is completely wack.

    Also, absolutely loving the new WCA highway loop and tunnels. It's the best addition in this update, IMO, and something that makes WCA seen much larger than it is.

    I'm a little sad to see JRI's peninsula road be shortened so much, but it's still enjoyable to race on, and now has many different alternate layouts (which is good to see). Love the new buildings and areas, like the revamped fort, resort, and port.

    Fantastic update, possibly one of the best so far especially with the tyre physics improvements and the tyre squeal (although not perfect in pitch) makes driving quickly much easier with audible indication of grip.

    I've found a hole in the floor in the hillside by the drag strip and also a few of the road textures on junctions flickering, like it looks to be swapping between straight/corner textures as I move the camera? Screenshot of location but obviously cannot demonstrate the glitching.

    Can you please share a screenshot? :)

    We are having two separate bindings for Smart and Dumb recovery in the hotfix, so you can choose which to us

    Yes, we are aware of this, unfortunately we did not have the time to tackle the issue yet :(
    On our ToDo

    One small thing, the ESC/TC lights on ETK's dashboard used to illuminate when you switch off the ESC system,but now for the ETKs,when you turn off the ESC,those two lights on the dashboard remain off. Not sure is this change intended or not. My thought is that it's good for a normal road car to have those lights stay on to remind the driver “You have turned off the ESP”:)
