    As shown in the video, how will Direct Specular Lighting affect performance? It looks great though.
    I know performance is said to be similar, but I'm not sure whether that includes it.

    I think it was in 2x slow motion, my game sounds like that when I drive the crawler without the mufflers on 2x slow motion.

    Maybe the Wigeon wasn't shown because that video is only meant to show the new PBR system, and showing the Wigeon would only make people focus on that instead.

    Perhaps, perhaps not.

    Video teasing bluebuck (2019)
    14 Aug 2019
    Actual Release
    16 Aug 2019

    I can't remember the last time a video drop came before the update aside from that, at least not one significantly far away not marked as teaser

    It is a possibility, but let's not hype ourselves too much, else the dissapoinment may be considerable...

    It was marked as a Teaser Tuesday though. https://www.youtube.com/post/Ugyxxqw0T19MHP41W_Z4AaABCQ

    It'll probably be around a month before the update comes out.

    That was a release/update blog video, this is just a teaser tuesday. The Vivace's first teaser video was months before release.

    Why do the light spots on the orange Vivace seem to be at a lower framerate than the rest of the game? Is PBR being faked with dynamic reflections?



    See 0:13 and play at 0.25x speed, you will se that the specular highlights update slower than the game itself. I hope I'm wrong because I will be very unhappy if my suspicions are true.

    EDIT: I am an idiot, that is the sun moving. Never mind

    I believe (hope) this is due to the changing time of day, as seen by the shadow moving very quickly on the ground. I think it's just from the sun moving in the sky quickly and not smoothly. I think the effect is amplified a bit by the curves of the car as well.

    ...oh, that would explain it perfectly

    So, about Automation vehicles: That game has used PBR for a very long time. Can we expect better parity between what we see in Automation and what we get in BeamNG?

    And will you be able to tweak all the parameters of the car paint from the menu, or is it back to the old days where you had to edit the jbeam or use the level editor?

    That Wigeon is like covered with panels Matra P28 prototype:

    upload_2021-6-23_1-1-6.png
    https://www.carstyling.ru/en/car/1982_matra_p28/

    Might got some inspiration of that and similar designs, but P28 has quite a lot of aspects similar to Wigeon, minus the bodypanels of course.

    If that is coming in new update, then hopefully there is stripped version at least as a mod as that is properly weird vehicle to be interesting.

    I don't know if this means anything, but the T-series exhaust disappears at 0:33, and the trailer gets some new rust at the bottom, where previously the trailer was spotless.

    I think the disappearing exhaust is just a detail that the devs forgot about when making this video, or they changed the T-Series in the video to have one exhaust stack. The rusty trailer is probably a completely new texture from the PBR.

    I've recreated one of the scenes from the teaser, and oh boy does it look great! Seeing the two screenshots next to each other really shows just how much of an improvement PBR is.
    The tires and wheels look absolutely amazing!

    First off great comparison, matched the framing perfectly. Secondly, it's moments like this that make me reassured ditching the CryEngine didn't really matter. The devs have shown us time and time again that they are more than capable. Beamng is a work of art imitating reality.
