    Hello beaming drive peeps, I need help with making a car mod from scratch. I’m looking to make my 1997 Ford F-250 in beaming drive, and was wondering what was needed and where I could find a tutorial on how to make cars from scratch. I know there’s a software called blender, but I’m just looking for any other useful softwares without having to pay excessive amounts, (3dmax, maya). If someone could tell me how to do it or where I could find someone to do it, and any other useful softwares, that would be awesome! Cheers!

    (Sorry lads if this is a bump)

    Making a mod isnt such an easy task and takes alot of effort. You will need blender to 3d model and its completely free. I recommend looking on the wiki on how to do it and recommend making a simple box/cube or airport tug first

    https://wiki.beamng.com/Content_Creation and https://wiki.beamng.com/Vehicle_Creation_Megapage (info on vechicle modding e.g. jbeam references etc)
    https://wiki.beamng.com/Introduction_to_Vehicle_Creation (first simple vehicle) (a bit outdated but with perseverence works)
    https://www.blender.org/ (blender the 3d modeling software)
    https://www.beamng.com/threads/blender-exporter-plugin-0-3-1-for-blender-2-80.11514/(the jbeam exporter plugin for blender)
    https://www.gimp.org/downloads/(for texturing)
    http://notepad-plus-plus.org/download(very important for file editing)

    And finally the tilde key, in game when the vehicle doesnt work press that and it will tell you the errors.


    If you need anymore help I am not very experienced but have got to the point of where I can get 3d models in game. (without textures yet) so ill try my best to help :D

    Good luck :D
