    I gotta say that I love the new update. The additional parts and new car are a lot of fun to mess around with.

    I've got the early access, and I gotta say, it's pretty fun. Cars are a bit delicate, but the damage looks fairly realistic. Best of all, it's been made to the point where 24 vehicles can be simulated at once fairly smoothly on a mid-range PC (mine). I do however plan to get BNG, as it has alot of stuff I like too (open world, more cars, community content, ETC).

    BeamNG also has a realistic physics engine. ;)

    I know, but people were saying it had damage physics like GTA IV, and that is straight up false.

    It's Next Car Game, not New Car Game.

    Sorry, typo. Not really worth correcting, though.

    The physics are very similar.

    Of BNG and NCG or NCG and GTA4?

    Of the two I quoted, NCG and GTA.

    Gets good right around the 45 second mark.

    Edit: I could do a recording of my own, possibly.

    Ok, what am I looking at? I own NCG you know, it's not even close to BeamNG.

    A crash test video. And I'd say it's not far off, actually, owning it as well.

    Why would you show up on the BeamNg forums and start arguing in NCG's way when you don't even own BeamNG.Drive?

    Because it's an off topic thread about NCG, and it keeps being likened to GTA. And I'm not far away from purchasing BNG any way. I'm waiting for it to hit Steam Early Access.

    But you don't own BeamNG right?

    It's a huge difference between BeamNG and NCG!

    BeamNG uses "smooth soft body physics" (SSB physics for short) which morphs smoothly using real world spring, stress etc. behaviors simulating 1000s of nodes and beams 2000 times a second. NCG uses "instant soft body physics" (ISB physics for short) which changes in the blink of an eye do to it not using real world spring, stress etc. behaviors.
    I'm sure the BeamNG devs could give a much more detailed description (they have many times here on the forums).

    P.S. excuse my attempt at naming the different types of soft body physics, there's not really any widely used names for them. :p

    Potato has a good video here, it's a great way to demonstrate the difference.

    Here's an embed of Potato's video (got you beat Potato): :p
