    So, after looking through the ECA and Hirochi art files (mostly in the shapes sections), I found these things that either will be featuring in Firwood, getting a mention, or are just world-building info. I have included where these are located, so that you can verify that these are real.

    New Brand: Eco-Splash (portable lavatories/toiletries) (Hirochi Raceway > Art_V2 > Shapes > Objects > Toilet_d) (will get a mention)

    From this giant pile of shop signs (East Coast USA > Art_V2 > Shapes > Clutter or Buildings > eca_bld_shop_opaque_decoration_d)...

    New Person: Micheal Austin (likely a country singer) (probably will not get a mention)

    Whalewatching is an event in Firwood (probably will get a mention)

    New Shops: Seamless Shop, Beat Wave Store
    (no idea where these are located in ECA the map) (likely will get a mention)
    upload_2020-1-16_7-8-24.png

    From this shop decoration file (East Coast USA > Art_V2 > Shapes > Buildings > eca_bld_shop_window_decoration_d)...

    Confirmation that Portland, Maine, as well as Washington/Oregon, exist in the Beamverse
    (outlined in red)

    (Portland probably will get a mention, but Washington/Oregon will probably not get a mention)


    Some of these are probably very minor, but they're nice world-building details.

    Will this story become an actual book? Or at least a scenario pack?

    This is a story book, not a scenario

    Ok, but what about a book?

    Not a book, but...I'll have to consider the scenario pack. There's a few races that could definitely work as scenarios, such as the Chapter 6 gravity race (which works well for the AI) or the Chapter 11 race (which probably doesn't work well for the AI).

    I will admit that there will probably be some custom skins made by me and Rusty for Firwood - not going to show any of them yet, but just know that there'll be some more modding to the vehicles than in Selva.

    Hey, if you need any extra liveries for cars I’d be happy to add a couple.
    I’d like to think I’m fairly good at doing period racing liveries.

    Big fan of the story by the way, was looking to start something similar myself but I’ve written something completely unrelated to BeamNG instead.

    I was already considering using a couple of your Super Touring skins for the '88 Pessima for background shots, and I was just about to ask you for permission. I'm glad that you're interested in making some skins for this story. Shoot me a DM and we'll talk there.

    Well, thank you! I'm glad that you enjoy it!

    So, I've been going back and taking pictures of the vehicle characters. I've added all of these to the first post, under the "Vehicle Characters List" spoiler.

    Replaced: Carla's image (now added her piano, Hamilton)

    Old: (this was awful)

    This was something that I thought I would do, to give y'all an idea of what the characters look like.
