    Unless the tires are cold or you wear them down to shit, they would not make the handling worse in any too noticable way; if anything, it would make it better after a bit of driving

    Currently the tires are basically always in their optimal operating window.
    Thermals would add things like too hot and too cold that would reduce the performance of the tire.
    However, while peak performance might be reduced in some case, the overall behavior would be more realistic.

    Which is why I say it would be a shame if BeamNG never got them.

    Speaking of tire physics, since it's been confirmed now that BeamNG's physics engine places a deformable layer of video game magic on the road to smooth out tire behavior, is there anything else this could lead to eventually?

    Some of this "speculation" done here seems to be things like "hmm yes the next update will have content".

    It sounds like BeamNG.tech updates are going to release every 3 months according to the documentation. Given it is supposedly going to share some improvements with BeamNG.drive (notably linux support), and I would assume (though I might be wrong) that it would be developed in tandem with BeamNG.drive. Could BeamNG.drive be moving from a 4 month update cycle to a 3 month one? This is just speculation, but I'm curious how this will play out.

    The problem is that "optimal tire performance" in BeamNG is still not the best, so adding simulation that makes them intentionally perform worse would take them from "at least passable" to "Civetta Bolide in 2014" pretty quickly unless the tire model is better than I give it credit for

    Can someone bring back the release estimation chart?

    I think it is at a 3 month one, just a little late pretty often :D

    I would say compared to other sims beamng cars tend to have o little too much grip not too little

    I think the grip on street cars and offroad cars is perfect but race cars lack a little grip.

    So... oh boy a lot happened here huh?
    Can I get a summary of what happened when I was gone? Links of pages where the most important things happened?

    I was more talking about the hillclimb versions - with these gigantic wings i think they should have a bit more grip and they should also not take off that much when hitting a kerb.

    Oh.
    Well, that's... interesting. Thanks
    Wait, Beamng will run on a new engine?

    No, it's just PBR (physically based rendering)

    Can't wait for my gaming rig to officially become obsolete because of this. It never stopped the random BSOD fits so it probably needs a replacement something or other anyway, but I need that money for IRL car stuff!

    Maybe, i forgot to add that they said in the documentation that linux will be supported, and since torque can't run on linux, that certainly means Vulkan is coming.
