    A few days ago I thought, ''I think BeamNG would be better if you could leave your car and walk around the map to find other cars to drive.''

    I think that BeamNG would be perfect if that ability was added, but that is only my opinion.

    Feel free to give your own opinion here.

    That kind of thing already exists in brick rigs and whilst its a good idea it might take a while to be made if it is Even.

    Maybe it could be in the career when it is added, that would be good.

    Probably. It would be a nice alternative to resetting the car though. Maybe you could have a slider to choose the amount of cars.

    It’s BeamNG, not GTA6 or something

    I don't see this ever happening, not to be rude.

    This has been discussed several times over the years, to varying degrees of community acceptance. If memory serves, one of the devs (Gabe, maybe?) said that it would be possible and that there were tentative plans to implement it, but that was years ago and the roadmap may not include this feature today.

    Edit: I'd be remiss not to mention that there was a sort-of first person mode way, way back in the day. It was just some leftover Torque 3d code and could only be triggered with a console command. You also couldn't switch vehicles with it, but it was a cool little feature for a while.

    But one of the reasons beamng is unique is because there is no person, just the cars. its what makes it special. Don't mean to be rude.

    I understand your thinking, but what if it was just an option?
