If you use Automation mods, and those mods uses custom materials (ie. not Automation materials), the exporter would not know how to handle them.
One with some modding knowledge can always fix those cases manually.
Looks like your editor doesn't display linebreaks correctly maybe?
It does, when I opened it up in Notepad++ it looks fine.
Loving it, but it has a pretty major bug. Pressing R to reset the car causes a fatal exeption.
I believe it was some covet mod.
It is, I rewrote the entire torque curve for my Covet's engine thinking 0.13 broke it and then I found out it was the MoreEngines mod or something causing it.
Oh well, at least my Covet is faster now though.
I have a rig that can easily handle both automation and beam at the same time. So I try out my abominations... ekhm... cars and can do some minor adjustments without turning off one game and turning on another. Well, almost. I still have to restart beam to get the update. So: is there a way to somehow reload beam so it uses the fresh files?
Replace car with another, then export in Automation and after that open vehicle menu, select your exported car again. that is how it has worked for me.
Ok, I'll try that next time i fiddle around with those games.
As great as this update is, one problem is the engine exporter doesn't export turbos properly and that can rob the exported cars of a lot of power. As you can see from my personal track car here. 547hp in Automation, 439 in Beam. Over 100hp lost... and this doesn't happen to my naturally aspirated cars.
I lost over a 1000hp on mine...
one of the automation team members addressed this already:
My bad. I could attach the .car if it'd help the Automation staff?
edit: here you go, hope this is useful
It seems the exported cars are painfully hard to run. For starters (and probably the biggest issue) is the automation exporter needlessly exporting all of the engine internals to BeamNG, it really hammers the performance badly. There are also quite a few excessively high poly fixtures that could get away with half as many as they have.
I've found they are easily twice as heavy to run as the default cars and are no where near as detailed.
Even when i manually went through and removed all of the engine flexbody lines I still only get about 18fps with 8 cars on a GTX 1070
Compared with default cars which get almost twice that
I know it will maybe never be as optimised as the default cars but there is definitely alot of room for improvement.
I find the exported car engine volume to be very low compared to stock Beam vehicles. A v12 that is deafening in the game is half as loud as the Default Beamng Pickup. It feels like the exported cars should be a lot louder.
Secondly, the bed of the pickup bodies (especially the big modern one) can sometimes look horribly broken both in and out of Automation, as Killrob noted in GETD 5.
Overall, the exporter is fantastic, and I greatly appreciate the hard work put in. Good job!
I was so excited for this update, I was ready to buy automation (whom, honestly, I knew nothing about before), and I think it's a nice idea, but now that I had the opportunity to try some exported vehicles I am a bit disappointed. Who cares about the interiors, but I can't stand the extreme low quality of that mods. I love this game for its realism, this is I think one of the reasons it must be chosen instead of many other car games, so I prefer less mods but of higher quality, like many of you can conceive and create (I envy you guys).
(however, I totally understand that commercially speaking this is a great move, that will increase creators revenue, so good for you )
the exporter is a cool feature for those who want to test drive their automation creations,
and i really appreciate it for that alone - but the deformation is worse than i expected.
the "russian mods" that this forum hates so much deform a lot better than these exports.
the lack of a detachable bonnet makes frontal impacts look wrong, and there isnt even a simple "cracked glass" texture for the windows.
i understand that the kind of auto-generation that happens here has its limitations, but i hope there will be improvements in the future.
