    Hi all,
    I am surprised by the lack of small cars and English cars in BeamNG so I thought I would try to make one. The classic mini as its also known was a small car made in the UK from 1959-2001 (I am focussing on one model, the mark 1 1959-69 for now) before being sold in 2001 to BMW who made the (not so) mini and are still making it as of late 2017. I am a complete noob and this will be my first but I do have access to a mini (a 1993 Mini Sprite 1275cc). I just want to see what you guys would think to an icon of British motoring in BeamNG I will need help so any help you can offer is greatly appreciated

    Making cars for BeamNG is not easy as just making the body & then everything creates itself... So good luck, but it will take months to make the car

    You are not supposed to create a thread without any showable progress. Not here at least, if you want ideas or suggestions you canuse general discussion.
    Good luck

    Sketchup does not support the .DAE format, and does not always work with beamng even when converted
