    Hi, I'm new to a Beam.NG account, I'm trying to figure out how to make a vehicle, and I can't figure out, like a vehicle creator program?

    no program. Also there is NO WAY you can make a car just starting out. You need to start making things like license plates make skins etc. Beamng is not roblox you dont just click together some blocks and be done in an hour. It takes months or years and extensive knowledge of 3d modeling, jbeaming, texturing, experience with setting up for the beamng file system etc.

    It takes time and effort to produce a good-quality mod for BeamNG.drive. Besides that, you need to know the JBeam structure, the basics of modeling, and much more.

    If you want to make a vehicle, start with something simple first, such as a skin, before moving your way up to vehicles, as the latter can take several weeks, months, or even years to complete.

    Hi, welcome to the forums! That's excellent that you'd like to start modding! Here's a couple of great resources to help you learn the basics:
    • BeamNG.drive wiki - The wiki contains tons of really helpful tutorials and guides for all sorts of different types of mods.
    • Vehicle Creation Megapage - Here you can find a lot of info specific to vehicle creation.
    • Vehicle Creation Tutorial - This is a step by step tutorial that walks you through the basics of creating a simple vehicle. (I highly recommend completing this tutorial first)
    • Vehicle Creation Guide - Another tutorial that mainly focuses on the Jbeam.
    • Mod Support - If you get stuck / have trouble / have a modding question, this is a great place to ask for help.
    Creating a vehicle may seem rather daunting at first, but don't be discouraged. It's totally worth it!

    Good luck! :)

    Hello, thank you so much (one person), Eco, you're the only one that gave me positive support :). Others I already understood, and I was NOT going to make a full out vehicle first.
