    That's not true. There is nothing preventing you from creating hybrid powertrains and the relevant required devices.

    Arcanox literally has a hybrid powertrain mod. Bruh.

    but why does it's written "Only one engine per tree" (picture is taken from the old wiki about the powertrains https://wiki.beamng.com/Powertrain ) ? Maybe this text is outdated but I tried to do it on my end and it always ended up with a crash or problems with the powertrain tree, maybe I did it wrong but there was nothing showing it was possible. I know that you can make some sort of hybrid with an electric drivetrain being totally independant from the ICE drivetrain, but what I was complaining about is the fact that you can't make an electric engine to receive the power of an ICE, a bit like audi's or porsche's hybrids systems (with an electric engine inside the gearbox)

    I already had a look on arcanox's hybrid systems, his mod is very impressive but the problem is that he managed to get close to an hybrid vehicle but it's not exactly like it, the front wheels aren't connected to the rear wheels (try to go full throttle at low speed, the front wheels will keep spinning), and it looks like arcanox had to create a very complex system of "torque portals" to bypass the limitations I had with the powertrain system

    "warm up a bit", while this could just be a coincidence it's very exciting.

    Because we have no need for devices other than what we have already. You could easily create an inline electric motor that has an input and an output. Or a transmission that includes an electric motor etc etc.
    You won't get any hybrid without lots of coding in multiple places, that's why the existing hybrid mods are as complex as they are. But all of it is perfectly supportable.

    So "supportable" means that you need to code it yourself with LUA, rather than simply implementing it with existing devices? That's a weird kind of support but ok

    Yes exactly. Supported doesn't mean that you can piece it together with existing pieces,you'll have to create some of these pieces yourself.

    What update for tires? The blog post is talking about the changes from the last major update.
