    Am i the only one who read pyrotechnical charge and assumed the devs where going full 8 Ball and making car bombs instead of fireworks?

    That’s what I thought initially, although I’m not sure how likely it is. I guess it could really be anything though.

    Yeah I didn't think it was likely either but I couldn't think of anything else

    may be anything. From operable doors and hood As Game Content ( not mods )

    Or it may be something like as said a bomb. OR anything. Very cool stuff.

    My prediction: The "pyrotechnic charge" means the game can automatically set off an explosive if you crash, killing the player irl ,and thus making the game more realistic. :p

    My speculation is excessive on purpose x)
    (I don’t genuinely believe it, tho it would be great fun)

    The code looks like it's related to a modern car, so most likely the upcoming Civetta.
    Realistically the others are probably right, I've never heard of this mechanism but it sounds interesting :)

    The "sensors" part of the code leads me to speculate the devs are taking what they learned from BeamNG.tech and implementing realistic car sensor simulation into the game, so we can have things like realistic self-driving cars, automatic braking, lane assistance and adaptive cruise control. The reason why this update is taking so long might be because they had to re-write parts of the base code so that can work properly, but who knows, maybe they'll also be using that to make better AI. This could also explain why they won't support 32-bit systems, the game having to handle all of that probably got too much for them to handle.

    Edit: Just noticed the two-step launch control part of the code, so that's going to be fun!

    Also, since Angelo is now part of the dev teamand he worked on a ADS mod, he could have helped with it, even though he said the mod won't be incorpored in the game since it's not up to their quality standards.

    Could be a stretch but pyro charge were used on the Mercedes SLS to blow up the hinges of the gullwings doors in case the car rolled over. It was done to prevent any occupant being trap in the car because they wouldnt be able to open the door while the car was inverted.
    Maybe the new Civetta has gullwings door or similar and the devs wants to implement the "blow off the hinges in case of a rollover" feature ?

    On the topic of doors, I don't think we'll get gullwing doors because there is a convertible model, but I was looking at the car's frame teaser and noticed a cut going deep forwards into the front fenders

    This reminds me of how McLaren's Butterfly doors operate. Notice that the door mechanism itself is above the front tires. Also notice that there is a hole about halfway up the wheel well, which is probably where a gas spring/damper will be.

    Oh this would be interesting. Not sure if the chassis pictures support the idea of gullwing, but maybe another form of supercar door? Tbh I just really want some fun doors

    I got caught lacking. But this is what i was thinking

    Maybe that "pyrotechnicCharge" is something similar to rocket thrusters that Tesla Roadster has. It's even placed under "twoStepLaunch" line

    By similar i meant butterfly, elytra or other types of door that may be stuck in place when the car is on its roof.

    The BeamNG.tech is far from hidden / secret: https://beamng.tech
    And no, we do not want to leave anyone in the dark about anything :)
    We are having just so much work.

    Pedestrians is something we worked on and off for some years but we are not happy with the end results and did not pursue it further.
    We have so many plans for the game and pedestrians is certainly on our roadmap at some point in the distant future if time allows us.

    I'll try to answer any questions that are asked by quoting this post :)

    Will this mean, there'll possibly be NPC pedestrians in some of the maps during career mode or no?

    The pedestrians are really complex: where do they walk? How to do the route planning for them? How to prevent them walking where they should not?
    We are looking into various technologies for years, but its a lot to get working.
    Career mode does currently not involve NPC characters / pedestrians. If we can and have time to add them, it would be to make the city more alive.

    When updat? :confused:


    Just kidding.
    Pedestrians means people, so are you thinking about passengers as well?

    Are you planning to answer those questions for the AI traffic in the near feature as well? Seems like a lot of weird traffic manouvers could either be solved by turn restrictions or giving them a destination

    Is it difficult to split the team between .tech and .drive? Or do you have dedicated people to each? I imagine one can take up more of your time depending on what you guys are working on.
