    Yeah we do, you see them in hospitals a lot and I believe in some office apartments.

    OT: Man things are looking exiting, looking forward to the 200BX.

    Watch out for tolerance build-up. Over time the caffeine won't work (everyday use), but you'll be dependent on refill to not decrease performance. Strenght training will though, increase calorie combustion for 24-48 (granted you consume enough proteins, energy and general nutritients, as well as sleep enough (~7-8 hours)), and overall give you more energy. It's like over-volting your body, cardio won't have this effect because the body stops combusting when you stop running. But after a strenght workout your body will be running on higher gears for 24-48 hours (rebuilding). Studies indicate that strength training boosts mental performance. You'd need to consume enough proteins and energy though.

    Free life advice. :)

    Now we have a nice view across the office :)

    But we had to move the kitchen around, huge chaos still:

    On BeamNG.drive: lots of progress in the background, update soon-ish once the features do not crash to desktop after using them instantly ;)

    You guys should do what Bungie did back in the day with Halo 3. Have where we can upload screenshots (like seen in post) and popular ones we can like and such and every week have like a top 5 most popular pictures. Is this Repository system going to be something we can access in game? Would be nice to have access to that in game where we can download files straight to the game via in game lol.

    And the hammer as a lock.

    "We need to lock this cabinet. What should we use?"
    "Uhh, some chain and a pad lock?"
    "No, no, it's too easy to get through. I know!"
    "You know what?"
    "We'll use this hammer!"

    Oh man... That saw hanging off the divider made my day when I imagined how cutting it off must have looked like (check out how off-center that cut is)

    I fully expect to see a 45 cut into the corner of the desk to avoid serious thigh injuries as well.:p

    This just made my day;)

    On a technical note, is it much more GPU intensive than the current cubemap?

    You can't immagine how surprized I looked as I saw that :D Such good news!! Just out of curiosity, would it be also possible to have mesh reflecting eachother, like for example the lightbulb reflecting inside the headlight housing, thus creating very realistic looking headlights?

    Is there a noticeable drop in FPS with the new reflection system? Will we be able to disable and or lower the quality of the reflections?

    There is a drop but it is configurable so you can tweak the settings or disable it altogether.
