    Lol okay. Wasn't sure what you originally meant by not happening soon. Now I gotcha. Welded bumpers would be killer! And God that Burnside bends ugly as Sun!

    I'll investigate about those and record some footage to examine it more. Welding bumpers can be advantage and disadvantage as well.

    If there was a way to remove or suck in the bumper shocks on the moonhawk, and weld the bumper straight to the frame, I think that it wouldn't bend downwards so often up front.

    I don't understand, that how you get the front of Moonhawk to bend downwards. That never occur on me, I always get it bend upwards like it should.

    The front bumper goes down, but the frame stills bends up. Leaves your radiator exposed instead of protecting it.

    Is it just me or does it really matter if the bumper is in front of the radiator or left exposed? I've ruined rads by just bumping into people and not damaging the tin lol

    Well it would require knowledge about the game's assets, their position values and ton of complex work to be done. Definitely not an option right now propably, but as the project progresses more, we could investigate about this option. But, I dunno, that how good it would be to edit those sort of things, as it's not so realistic nor aunthentic to derbying. I dunno, that do they do those things in real life thou.


    At least that Node to Node feature will be looked upon this autumn, the feature is unstable now however, but it would be absolutely necessary thing to have, so that we can properly shut doors, hoods and trunk lids with that feature. Right now, they're very prone to open and that weakens the car from that section a lot, so definitely would need improvement for that issue at some point.

    I'm really looking forward to this fix

    This scenario has pretty much been the only thing I've done in beam for the last few months. Things like this is what the game was designed for, and I'm surprised the developers haven't added anything like this mod into the stock game.

    Just before the update rolled out, I was making derby configurations of other modded cars, so I could use them in the this scenario, as my car. Just as I finished, the game crashed and it started updating when I reloaded it, so I'm eager to download the fixed version.

    Full size vans would derby with full size trucks IRL as long as the vans and trucks are all 1/2 tons. Most places don't allow full size fans to derby simply because there is little between the driver's knees and the engine block which could severely injure someone. You have probably seen Astrovans and minivans get derbied which belong with compact trucks like Ford Rangers, Dodge dakotas etc...

    To answer your "realism" question DD. I have seen some places where they allow you to run radiators on the roof, But most water barrels inside the cockpit are just for heavy classes, not so much for chain/bone stock which we don't even have cars that good right now, which means we have less than even real life cars. But, I have seen Chain classes even with Radi-Barrles which are called steam tanks in the banger world, just a steel tank bolted to the core support in place of the radiator. Would like to see some cooling changing like that as well, but just want to see this Mod get updated again. Thanks for keeping us updated, boss.
