    Finally the game looks like it came out in 2019 and not 2009

    Performance should be quite close to what you have been used to actually, as your GPU is doing the same kind of work, in a different way.
    Actually these new materials can be faster, in certain material setups, than the classic ones. There will be more details in the upcoming documentation for those interested in the benefits of this (aside the quality jump)

    Disclaimer: This is just demonstrative, results will vary depending on your pc, hardware, mods, yadda yadda.

    Average framerate is about the same

    This looks incredible but I'm wondering if what you've shown in the video is all that we're going to see in 0.23 or do you have even more features and effects that are still in development that are also going to release in 0.23?

    I'm curious about the impact of the new "Ultra" setting, the lighting looks fantastic.

    Are we just going to ignore the new gridmap in the video? At about 00:54 in when they're showing off the t-series, look closely at the background

    OOoooooh nice I really hope it's this version's map remaster, the current one just started to get a little boring to me, and God knows how many hours I drove there

    I mean, he's not wrong. It's refreshing to see the game with a much nicer aesthetic so that it adds to the immersion.

    I wonder if with PBR automation cars will look nicer because right now they look kinda ugly in BeamNG compared to in Automation.

    No all I’m saying is the game doesn’t look bad anymore. It looks great.

    Are we one step closer to global illumination?

    These small, incremental but regular updates are really what keeps me coming back to this game. I'm optimistic for what this game will become eventually.
