    Has anyone else noticed that the Wigeon has features that most other vehicles in game don’t? Those being a fuel cap, an antenna, and seatbelt buckles. I wonder why this vehicle was given them, and if it’s something we could see integrated into other vehicles.

    And
    And the fact that they added oil simulation would permit fuel simulation and thus fuel caps an refueling.

    The D-Series has one as well, but telescoping. Been in the game for at least two updates

    What has oil to do with fuel? And apart from that, what further fuel simulation would you want?

    And you can set weight on driver and on passenger (in car config tunning tab)

    Contamination of oil by excessive fueling by ancient carburetors, too much engine braking and running engine cold? :D

    Difference of replacing oil interval can be huge depending of those factors alone, what is more interesting is that when you have ancient carbs and make only short drives, so that engine is cold always, amount of oil in dipstick increases, but when you then do a track day you might run your oil low as fuel from oil disappears.
    Also viscosity of oil is reduced.

    Is that technically fuel simulation or oil simulation then, after all it is part of fuel simulation, which adds to oil simulation.


    Yeah quite unlikely and adds another complexities that are not so easy to communicate with users of varying technical knowledge, but... :D

    We need realtime fluid simulation to accurately simulate the movement of washer fluid during cornering. Anything less is unnaceptable

    It has to work so that when accelerating with high performance car, wiper fluid comes out of nozzles by sheer force of acceleration, otherwise it is as good as none at all, absolutely :D

    Fuel tank slosh would be cool. If the fuel tank is very low, hard braking and cornering could cause the fuel pump to suck up air. Had this happen once when driving to a gas station with nearly no gas in the tank. Had to brake hard to avoid a wreckless driver and the car cut off ~15 seconds later due to air in the fuel lines.

    We need physically simulated engines

    Fuel movement is simulated, so theoretically, you could use lua and get data from fuel node I believe, cut engine when desired conditions are met, it might be possible, no guarantees though.

    Hundreds more nodes, many times the buggyness, and harder to make. All for what? A bit of vibration?

    we just need a higher detail damage model for the engine. You should be able to have mechanical problems

    Funnily enough, it was just last week I made jbeam for physical engine, haven't done lua for it yet, but indeed it is something that needs to be done.

    2000Hz is not enough to run car engine though, but for 60rpm ship engine it should be enough.

    I think most ridiculous simulation aspect we need is light bulb life, environment temperature as well as cooling effect of airflow and size of compartment bulb resides in are variables that are needed, obviously vibration too, but that is really obvious parameter.

    So then you need to replace light bulb realistic way, by removing front bumper and inner fender + ton of other parts.

    Resetting of vehicle, should not fix light bulbs.

    I'm sure this will come right at next hotfix.


    Anyway, OT, what do you think, will Linux support come in hotfix or will there be another update, or is it trough Wine only for now?

    I would think that Linux binaries could come as a hotfix as they might need more time to finetune, then again it is not quite certain how Beam will come to Linux, would running it trough Wine as supported option be classified as coming to Linux?

    Всем привет, не сталкивался никто с такой проблемой после последнего обновления?

    BeamNg Launcher - ошибка инициализации BNGBase
    Контактная поддержка
    Код ошибки: 0x3000001
    Описание ошибки: Failed to get documents directory path

    Второй день пытаюсь её решить

    Try there https://beamng.com/forums/russian-русский.591/

    Here we try to speculate about next update with low success as we go to wrong subjects too much already.

    Verify game files trough Steam.

    i
    --- Post updated ---
    I was thinking about the refnode and everything you added, but then i realized there was no need to do that for the fuel. Sorry.

    Wreckless drivers in general aren't very dangerous, it's the reckless drivers you have to be careful about
