    I see zero reason to add police cars for countries we don't have maps for. If they're going to make police versions they should be Italian or American (or maybe German or New Zealand).

    We have the gendarmerie Sunburst, don't we? Besides, a Dubai police skin would be relatively easy to make

    I have no idea where the hell I pulled it that from at 12:00 AM. Brains are weird.

    And very characteristic of a certain culture too!

    Also, about the Gendarmerie cars in BeamNG, they don't feature French number plates and they also don't feature the same Siren. Only the Sunburst Gendarmerie has the classic siren, the Vivace Gendarmerie does not have it.

    The gendarmerie sunburst was added due to a terrorist attack in Paris iirc.

    Even then I feel like even the gendarmerie cars are out of place, and with how cluttered the selector already is, we really don't need police cars for locations that don't exist in game, so we really don't need a Dubai version, it'd be much better to have versions that would be useful on the maps we do have instead.

    I believe it was added for saluting the victims of the Paris terrorist attack on 11/13/2015 but I'm not old enough in this game to know. Anyway.
    How do you explain the fact that we have Polizei versions of the modern ETKs without having a Germany map?
    The ETK DEC map doesn't count, police chases are not what it was designed for.

    Having a V10 and a V12 (unless one is deisel) seems a bit unrealistic.

    Well ETK DEC is still a map that actually exists in the game, regardless of its size. You can't say the same for France or Dubai. At least France has a reason to exist (due to the event), Dubai does not.

    I think that BeamNG misses a V12 engine. We have a lot of V8 but really nothing above that.

    I dont think it is unrealistic too. V12 in real life only make sense in super sport cars and high end luxury cars. It is only for those, where the added cost and complexity usually can be justified.


    Leaving aside any reality considerations, from a gameplay standpoint, the game really lacks a V12 engine option. V12 for a long time have been considered the pinnacle of ICE cars and it feels honestly odd, that BeamNG - to date - does not have one. Adding a super car, certainly is the most realistic way of adding one to the game.

    Considering the games lack of V10 and V12 engines, I think this could get both. It could potentially have 2 sub-cars on the chassis, like the cherrier FCV. That isn’t completely realistic but it gives more possibilities. I do think a Dubai police config makes sense, despite the lack of a Dubai map. As for other configs, a GT3 race config and a liberty walk inspired body kit on the street tuned. There could be an UGR twin turbo variant for the drag, as well as a manual swapped variant.

    Since it's been confirmed we shouldn't expect a hybrid, I think the next most likely is a TT V8. But I still hope for a V12 instead. There's always going to be more options for TT V8s and V10s but bar a few luxury vehicles/grand tourers and a vintage Civetta halo car we may not get another chance for a V12.

    V12s were semi-common on prewar american luxobarges. Not using hybrid is a big missed opportunity.

    I can't disagree, all your points are right tbh.

    Apart from these niches you all mentioned (pre-war American luxobarges, modern high-end Euro Luxury Sedans and GTs) there's also the weird niche of the Diesel V12 (ideally Twin-Turbocharged) fitted to a large SUV and, also, the Diesel V12 for semi use! Such V12s would be really interesting to see in BeamNG. A Gavril TCV12 made out of two TCX 10.6l (= 21.2l) Inline-6 engines maybe? And an oversized 7.5l ETK V12 for the luxury barges, whether being SUVs or not?
    The Diesel V12 for the large SUV could also be accompanied by a gasoline V12 version, for making the ultimate V12 duo of SUVs! :cool:

    There's also the racing sector, in which the small and high-revving V12s own a special place in the hearts of countless race fans, especially in F1, as do the large, race-tuned, road-going V12s in LeMans (especially during the Group C era)!

    Here are some even more special sectors: army, aviation and marine! Some armored tank vehicles feature turbocharged V12s, some fighter planes also had V12s and some ultra-luxury yachts are also powered by V12s! BeamNG can support both air and water buoyancy physics, so these would be some great introductions in BeamNG! Also, imagine squashing a T-Series with a tank at full speed! :cool:

    I wouldn't say it's a missed opportunity, it's just that the Dev Team doesn't have the appropriate technical resources to simulate and develop a Hybrid powertrain right now, whether it is a Mild-Hybrid, a Full-Hybrid or a Plug-In Hybrid powertrain. That's what I understood.

    How about the V12 comprised of two engines straight out of an early 2000s Ford Taurus? :rolleyes:
