    Additionally, this thread has always served as a buffer between community hype/speculation/lore arguments and the forums at large, much like what the Vehicle Suggestions thread does for, well, vehicle suggestions. Is there all that much worth seeing here? No, not at the moment. Does the thread serve a purpose? Absolutely.

    So, uh, how about this upcoming update, right? I expect that with the likely LeGran refresh coming in the Wendover update, the interior will be improved. As it is currently, it is not up to par with most other vehicles in the game. For instance, the panel covering up where the shifter would go in the console looks like just a flat texture with no details or anything. I think that while making another 80s interior for the Wendover, the devs could bring some of the new models into the LeGran's new or updated interior. Hopefully...

    considering there's not much to speculate about, I speculate next update is probably releasing March 31st or April 7th

    More just pointless hype BUT All the Beamng cars offer something new and fun to the game. More so the later cars.

    Since gabe as taken A back seat due to his hand injury,.

    I hope his OK.

    But Since the Hopper All the cars been REALLY detailed. Even the bus ( I should use it more often )

    However the cars that imo don't offer anything much And or need remaster. Or At least some more parts. ( BUT STILL LOVE THEM )

    1 The Miramar. I do love this thing. Just One of those Basic Cheap jap eco cars. Whats NOT To love? While the engine is nice and detailed. The lack of rusty skin and extra parts make you Go oh... Also Inside is Blacker then the night.

    2 I-Series. Reminds me of a Aussie XD Falcon with some BMW and merc. my best 3 cars. SO why is this on the list? The engine mesh seems to small for the engine bay.Lack of rusty skin. I just feel With some minor work this will be one of the greats.

    BUT the one car that needs Total work the most is the Legran. I feel Gabe made this when he had sore hands. Or like he was getting bored with it. IN NO WAY CALLING HIS LAZY. He is like a Beamng god. But i feel This one was not one of the grates atm ( i feel so sorry saying that i really do.. I cant even Made a car body in 3d so yeah )


    BUT Other then beam rear. It also did not offer anything new ( that wow factor ) Autobello aircooled engine
    SBR offer EVs ECT

    Then the Model/textures felt like a 2013 model not a late 2016.

    BUT proof that the pudding is in the details,

    The last update The headlights and grill and Different parts now. As well as fixed the roof spike, BUT I since been using the Legran Lots more.


    SO what is with all this?


    Well When/IF the Wagon comes then i will be using this Legran so much more. AND if its AWD with better looking engines and fixes it will be one of the best cars in this game.


    Also Wendova is Hot AF and that rear end.... My god i love it. Like One of the best cars in GTA 4 The Fortune ( ford Tbird ) Only FWD


    ETA i hope Late March or April.

    Seeing the Wendova is done ( A dev posted Bye bye temp thumbnails ) And then the older teaser tusedays wire 80s thing. Shes ready :) :) :) :)

    Huh. I learn something new every day. I've never seen a Reatta under anything but daylight. I take it what's shown here is tailight, and the brakelights are below?

    The down below bits are reflectors I think. I believe it just uses 2 stage bulbs for brake lights and indicators. I haven't seen mine lit up in a very long time so I could be incorrect.

    The devs when people make not funny jokes then starts an arguement on one of the most important threads:

    One thing i'm curious about, is that most cars as of late have had some sort of high performance version, whether it's faster, or more offroad capable (or both).
    The thing about the LeGran is, most real-life equivalent vehicles used engines like the Buick 3800 at largest, equivalent to the LeGran's 3.8 V6. the Wendover is only going to be bigger and heavier than a LeGran, so how will they balance wanting one, considering a LeGran will likely also be cheaper than a Wendover in career mode?

    there are a few ways i can see them going about this:
    the first is to add a bit more OEM variety than is necessarily realistic, for example if they gave it an optional DOHC V8 akin to a cadillac NorthStar, that could substantially raise the upper limit for power.

    Another possibility, which I grow more skeptical of as time goes on, is a "super build" 3rd gen stock car config, akin to the hoppler and superpig. This would make the Wendover seriously desirable even among the pickup, SBR and vivace for overall competitiveness, and would be about the most recent nascar you could make without having something 100% aftermarket.

    a third option, however, would bring some new vehicle logic to the game, and would also be quite an unforgettable config, especially in the way it drives:
    since the wendover uses a contained FF drivetrain on a front subframe, you could get a second whole engine and front suspension assembly, and put it in place of the rear axle, to make a dual-engined version. combine this with the aformentioned northstar clone, and you've got a very peculiar, but very fast car.

    From what we've seen, the Wendover has moved decently upmarket since its inception. Imagine if Pontiac made a cheaper, enthusiast-oriented Cadillac Allante. Of course the lesser models get the 3.8, but a small DOHC V8 makes sense for the more expensive ones.

    The high-end interior better be jam-packed with 80's and 90's tech options

    It would be reasonable to assume that the legran would get an update with the wendover as their similar vehicles. I recall people being disappointed about the quality of the legran when it released on top of the weird paint design layout.
    but hears something to speculate about, other than a beater one what skins would the wendover have?

    If the D-series and Roamer are done with their remasters, then we could see other cars get remastered. It all depends on those two though. Also, with the new gridmap remaster thread, it signals that a gridmap remaster is in progress.

    I know maybe it's not the most appropriate thread, but I have a question ... why do you think developers prefer to make maps that contain different elements (for example WCUSA, which has cities, tracks and highways), rather than making a specific map, only with a big city?

    Yeah it would be way cooler to have a dedicated city map

    It improves immersion I think. Being able to drive through a city, out to the county roads and a cruise on the highway. All that without having to change maps, and reload the game is neat.
    They might make a NY-based thing in the future, who knows.

    Another thing I do speculate about is that one big city map may feel kind of... dead? Without proper AI, people etc. Just a thought.

    I remember speculation on something like this for the Piccolina sometime before its release, though my line of thinking was rooted more in the Citroen 2CV Sahara. From what I remember, BeamNG currently isn't set up to handle drivetrains with multiple engines, and I don't think that's changed.

    Cities, particularly large cities, have only been possible due to recent advances in the techniques the development team uses to make maps. It used to be that they caused serious problems in game performance, and it was only through developing the combination of mesh curb/decal road and the use of a seperate forest editor to place building facade details that cities were able to enter the game.

    This does bring to mind another interesting question - with map revamps coming to a close, and only Gridmap being confirmed on the list of remaining revamps, what could the environment artists be working on?
