    Made a tiny debug app to help me get DCTs working correctly :)


    (Oh and yes, I am still using the GM for testing, so right now it's an on-demand 4WD with lockable diffs and a 10 speed DCT... You can guess how likely it is that it will ship like this when the new powertrain code is eventually finished :D )

    This took way more time and code rewrites than I anticipated, but it'll improve the camera situation:

    I guess my last post wasn't quite obvious enough, even though some users guessed correctly. :)
    To properly support the new feature posted above, we overhauled the torque curve app a little.

    Little control app for the N2O :)


    The ring is both N2O level and status indicator at the same time.
    White -> Disarmed
    Green -> Armed
    Blue -> Actually using N2O right now

    Of course the thing also doubles as a toggle button that you can click.

    We finally found time to fix these two apps :)


    They are working better than ever now :)

    Just a tiny cryptic teaser :)
    As always, no promises on if and how that actually makes it into a final release but we are experimenting with something like this.

    Improved 'Caustics' being displayed at any depth at full strength.
    Now fades out the deeper you go.

    We also disabled the underwater bobbing/distortion effect, as it was kind of nauseating.

    Working on lots of invisible changes on the render code, but i have on my ToDo some little things too...

    Added a new material option for invert backface normals for simplify geometry of some opaque objects.

    A future update will include small improvements in the handling of audio devices.

    The first change will be the ability to just use whatever the selected Windows audio device is. It's checked each time you start BeamNG.drive, and remembered for the rest of the session:
    audio.png
    You can of course still force the use of an specific audio device, if you want BeamNG.drive to always go through one specific output (if you want to actively ignore your Windows configuration).


    The second change is the ability to remember previously plugged devices:
    audio2.png
    For example, if you had decided to use a USB headset for the game, and have now unplugged it, BeamNG.drive will temporarily use the Windows default as fallback. But it will remember your old choice and use it again next time you run the game with that USB headset plugged in.

    Giving the torque/power related apps a bit more attention:


    There has been some confusion around what each value means so I tried to make that more obvious :)

    Thanks to @Reila we got around adding skin support to some requested vehicles:

    T-Series, which will include a variety of skins
    screenshot_00008.jpg

    ETK K-Series, which now has a mean looking Police variant
    screenshot_00007.jpg

    As well some new configurations coming for other vehicles, such as this beautiful burnside
    screenshot_00006.jpg


    Thanks to @thomatoes50 the PostFX Manager Save/Load feature is working again.
    This can be handy for taking iconic photos with your favorite settings, without having to re-create them, but simply loading the saved preset.


    Also the color corrector works again, which can help you change the look of the game in various way (you can also create and use your own custom color corrections).
    Here's some examples:
