    I have been working on this for some time, I figured beamng could use another boat, especially one that can carry cars.. What I am doing is jbeaming the ferry model, from the game, that is found in the JRI files (with a few small changes), and making it into a drivable ferry, able to carry vehicles and cargo via the retractable, and adjustable, front ramp.

    The jbeam still needs many additions and refinements, as I am trying to make it as realistic as possible, while at the same time, keeping a relatively low node count to allow other vehicles to be spawned without affecting performance too much.

    I will be using an engine/prop, not just thrusters. I may also design a cockpit/cabin interior for it.



    Any input or suggestions are welcome. This is still wip. Please don't ask for any betas / early access releases because the answer will be no.

    Credits to the Beamng team for the mesh, I did not create it, only modified it slightly.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I've thought about that actually, I'm just not sure I want to have an engine there just for the exhaust. I figure if I have an engine, I might as well make a working propeller for it too.

    Will it have an extendable ramp or does it just rotate?

    It will raise and lower, so it will look like this when it's down: (this is just the original static object as an example)

    It's about time for something like this. I'm surprised no one did this in the past. I mean, the model was already in the stock game. Thank you for taking the initiative to make this
