    Don't think split screen would be efficient here, you need to render the game twice.

    It might be possible if the following could be achieved:
    1. We can generate and render 2 cameras instead of just one (With the ability to set the aspect ratios).
    2. Utilise the separate input methods though this should be easier as they exist for multiseat.

    You can run two instances of the game (I think) and connect them to a local server. I would recommend joining the discord linked here to ask people more familiar with what they're doing.

    unless its a potato pc. im pretty sure most people could handle a 2nd portion of beam rendered.

    I dont think rendering the game twice is the issue, but more making the 2 cameras actually work....

    I once ran 3 beamng on my desktop along side to get 2 ai cars in a server.
    that was way worse then i expected but its also running the game fully 3 times. Id imagine that simply running a splitscreen would be less demanding then having to run the entire game separately like that.
    i did hit pretty close to 100% of my 16 gb of ram used. but i was also running jungle rock island 3 times...
    i turned down the gfx to lowest on the ai beamng's but kept full details on my game which i was playing on.
    It ran at a steady 14fps lmfao.
    It was way more playable with only 2 instances of beamng running.. but still... you get the picture...
    It was fun nonetheless.. i managed to fill up a server of 4 with a single friend of mine and 3 separate instances of beam running xD

    Sorry if this has already been answered, but what's the security like on this whole operation? I was interested in doing this with my friend, but potential security risks are my main concern. Thanks.

    Hi there, what security concerns do you have specifically? We do not access or use anything personal. You set your username, the only bit of information that we get is your IP, we do not require any ports to be opened (unless your network is on some very weird settings).

    All servers are listed in the bridge for you to select from. I hope this helps, any other question feel free to ask in the discord we have a pretty amazing support team.

    Just saying, you can already download the mod from the MP discord server( it should work with 0.19, haven't checked)
