    If I wanted to make a new taillight for a BNG car, let's use the 800 series as an example.

    How exactly would I create a mod taillight that can be selected in the config menu?

    Can someone explain to me the process and / or give me some tutorial videos?

    Thanks.

    MY post is probably not allowed (devs feel free to delete this post i know its in violation) but you should probably join Blijo's discord server. it's helping me a ton with an upcoming map im making.

    Not allowed how? He can make edits and such to anything he pleases as long as it isn’t uploaded to the repo and breaks the car for everyone else.

    By that, what do you mean? I was talking about MY post, not @P_enta 's post. Why did I say that? Because if you look in the forum rules, it says something about discord servers or whatever not being allowed.

    It's fine, it's just a misunderstanding.

    If you'd like a simple answer from a simple person, here you go:

    Easiest way to go about it is to just create a new texture for the taillight and create a new materials.cs file.
    You could go about modelling one, but in the case of your example, why bother when the taillight is a strange shape?
    For the Jbeam, you could straight-up copy-paste the existing 800_taillight.jbeam and rename the parts and files.
    I'm not very good at modding, but that's the easiest way I can think of going about it.

    Thank you so much for the answer! The only struggle I would have is making a new texture for my new taillight model, but the discord server mentioned above should help me out with that.
