    Don't forget a K-Series GT car! And ETK 800 coupe/sedan if/when we see one. At least the Vivace has a BTCC style car. Drag cars are another thing we are down on.... Not a single gasser, tubbed rear end, modified wheelbase, pro-mod, etc...



    I don't think purpose built race cars ought to be completely out of the question, though many of them have a low cost/benefit ratio as it's a lot of work for a car that shares little with existing platforms and usually only gets one form of racing. So I'm not expecting any...

    For example, take NASCAR cup cars. Gen 4 and up would require completely unique parts, so that's a tough sell. Gen 1 and 2 cup cars were still close enough to factory to disregard for this conversation. Gen 3 is the gray zone, as they still used body panels from the street cars but they weren't exactly "race on Sunday sell on Monday" anymore either. I certainly would like to see a gen 3 car since it's unique, historically/culturally significant, and offers a new form of racing as it's much more extreme than the gen 1/2 alternatives.

    Another gray zone example is modifieds. 1940's-1960's they were still relatively close to stock, so again we can disregard them for this conversation. The 1970's is when they got tube frames. I don't think an early modified would be much more difficult than the crawlers to make since both use modified bodies already in game, engines already in game, both are relatively basic tube frames, both offer a unique variation of a type of racing that we really can't see without them, etc...

    Something that is unable to share any parts with the car its based off of is out of the question. This eliminates things like open wheeled cars and lmp cars. It also eliminates full blown trophy trucks and nascars as they dont share any parts either. Looking at the prerunner, it shares things like the interior, and you can put parts from the standard truck onto it. Things like that are possible.

    I really don't think it is a necessary thing though... Many have a poor cost/benefit ratio and therefore it's difficult to justify development, but that isn't universal.

    One of the bigget reasons the game isn't taken seriously as a racing sim is the lack of high end race cars, so the attraction to another target audience is a big thing to consider here. "Proper" race cars, while not as good as licensed cars/tracks for hardcore sim racers, will certainly be attractive to this audience

    As for modifieds specifically... As I mentioned, they would use existing engines and modified version of existing bodies in the same way both crawlers already do. The difference being we could drop a number of bodies ontop. Vintage modifieds frames aren't all that different than what was done for the crawlers either: just heavily modified ladder frame. See below.

    The update broke a LeGran based tube buggy mod I had, which was useful for converting the LeGran to AWD. I can't anymore, sadly. I think the Dev's should add AWD as it's real life counterpart had a (rare) option of AWD, not to mention how integral rallying/offroading is to Beam.


    And as someone mentioned the Moonhawk is terribly underutilized. Granted coupes were still very common in the 70s, but It needs at least a sedan and hopefully a mid-range engine (small V8) and station wagon.


    I'd also like to see an expansion of the Pigeon- a 4 wheel version of course ( I have the Dove mod which is amazing but quite old now), a bigger petrol engine with some actual torque, and maybe a UTV/side by side type model with an open body, rollcage and CVT.

    You have a point with the Moonhawk, that platform is missing basically all its bodystyles

    Id love to see a roadmap of where beamng is trying to head towards, and what features they prioritize/long term plans.

    career mode has had no mention what so ever in the past few years i think.
    im curious to know whats brewing up for this game.

    like im wondering if they will make perpose built vehicles that are in the same vain as the prerunner such as rally / racecars which are only slightly based on the original car
    but also a better focus on more bodystyles for existing vehicles?



    grr i was editing my post when someone removed it just so it wasnt offtopic

    Honestly, i really doubt they are ever doing a post like the one we got like 3 years ago laying the road ahead mentioning features that were coming to the game eventually. Its like the concept car list that still haunts the devs to this very day

    yep, that list has been binned. the only thing they seem to have salvaged from that is the Legran [redacted]
    of which the image got leaked and then suddenly removed.

    You just joined so im kinda curious as to why you know about the car poll from like 5 years ago. You do know that alts are against the rules, right?

    I really hope for a Pigeon revamp. It's BeamNG's mascot!
    just look at these textures.

    Just imagine a UK version with a ''hatchback'' body, a bit like a Reliant Rialto

    But what i mean with this is having a junker/trackday/perpose built car that still has a very stock and very filled interior.
    For instance the sunburst ripped out radio is the closest thing to that what we currently have.

    A good first step would be to allow the player to remove carpeting. That’d accomplish a lot on its own IMO.

    I never realized just HOW outdated the Pigeon is until now.
