    No I mean they look new, as if the new features have been added because some of it I don't recognise, like entirely new structures and overpasses, possible related to the video with bolide in perhaps ?

    There definitely are new features in WCUSA, the only one I saw was the ramp thing at the start of the Bolide time trial video. Here's a crude side-by-side, image on the left is current released version with image on the right being the new unreleased version.

    That's the only difference I spotted, but it's very possible I missed something.

    Edit after looking at the 2 pictures: the new and improved WCUSA also seems to have more trees in the background that the current version does not have. Here's a shot of what the spot where the trees off to the right looks like right now:

    I wouldn't say it's a "lack of interest", just that there's nothing to talk about. I've seen maybe 3 people say they actively don't want BeamNG to get gameplay features, but for the most part it's just that there's nothing to talk about yet.

    In the last update alone, we got the Vivace/Tograc (with a full devblog post about them, plus the usual teasers), major additions to the D-Series, H-Series, and Roamer (again, teasers for all of them), and the Small Island remaster (with teasers). We always know roughly what to expect so there's always plenty to talk about and to base speculation off of.

    As for major gameplay items, there hasn't been much in awhile, bar a couple of quickrace routes and scenarios once in awhile. We got a ton of AI stuff in last year's summer update, which was mostly a surprise. We got Light Runner in 0.14, bus routes and Hustle and Bustle in 0.12, (none of which had teasers or got much community interest), procedural tracks in 0.10, a UI sneak peak in August of 2018, and back in Over the Horizon in 2016 we got a sneak peak at some research stuff and career mode, a fair bit of which we never heard anything of again. My point is, we don't get much content in the game play department, and rarely get teasers when we do. There just isn't anything to speculate on. We know it'll come someday, but we don't know what it'll look like or have the vaguest idea what the timeline is.

    I believe that a teaser may be released on Tuesday, and the update shortly after, based on the early August-lay July update estimation from a while ago. They’re doing this ‘teaser Tuesday’ thing now so it wouldn’t be to much of a stretch.

    I do think the devs will release teasers on Tuesdays from now on, although not necessarily every Tuesday. Kinda like how R* drops updates for GTA online every Thursday.

    in regard to vehicles, the dev's initial motivation was to update the last of the body-on-frame vehicles with non-separatable body/frame structures, and they decided to add a fair whack of content with it in most cases.
    the bolide is the only vehicle with glaring JBeam issues now, (either the body will be made detatchable from the floorpan, or the whole thing will become one) so they might stop there.
    however, the pigeon arguably also has fallen behind in JBeam quality, so it's possible they might do some work on it (perhaps torsion beam front suspension, and tweaking the plastic body deformation). Though even if they do, i don't expect they'll do heaps with the pigeon (as much as I wish they would), as the average player probably doesn't play with it that much.

    otherwise, the other motivations for "remastering" a vehicle are primarily lower quality meshes,
    or not having enough content, which (IMO) the covet, moonhawk, 200bx, and midsize certainly qualify for.

    considering the timig of the updates, and since the last (huge) one was on april 8th, i think that a teaser on the devblog will pop up next week, mabye expaling the overhaul of wcusa, mabye new AI stuff (even if we had plenty of that in the Bluebuck update), mabye career mode exiting development hell (this one is the most unlikely), mabye new UI stuff, of which they showed us some work done a while back, but we never heard anything since. aside the wcusa update we might get the "update of the many really small collectively important things" (trademark), like the grand marshall overhaul one in december. So think updating meshes for the mast dated vehicles. and finally giving the pigeon a decnt tailgate texture

    Shit, that explains why the Pigeon doesn't deform but violently bounces back during crashes instead. The more you know..

    Also, Covet remaster for 0.22 :^)?

    The Covet has been "remastered" twice already, once in 0.16 and again in 0.17.

    I don't remember it. What was added and changed?


    I was thinking about the upcoming pickup crawler. In my opinion it's something like a proffesional version of the pig crawler. So the devs might delete it... But that wooden flatbed might be used for the tow truck or any other config. It just wouldn't stay only in the Pig, they will use it, I'm sure....

    the covet "remaster he refers to was mainly just adjustment to the body shape, and modifying the JBeam so the subframes were seperate from the unibody.

    and as for the D series pig, fact that the new one is called the "superpig" it implies that they'll keep the existing one as a sort of cheaper version.

    The covet never had a so called "remaster", those were just some small adjustments.
    And it doesn't need a real big overhaul.
    The covet just gets overhauled with small steps every time.

    Since he drove up the new road during the results screen, it's possible to see a little more of what's going on up there with a basic brightness, contrast and saturation adjustment.
