    Well, to be honest, I like that. There's a bit of everything, even though they chose to focus mostly on folkloristic old towns. Milan, for example, looks nothing like that, but then again, Los Angeles doesn't look like West Coast USA either.

    I disagree. I like that 'Anywhere, Italy' vibe.

    I have a mod of 2 TDI engines for the Covet, but nothing about sounds. Just too lazy to do custom sounds so I have to use the vanilla ones, they match pretty good tho.

    WCA isn't 100% LA or 100% San Francisco, but gives a Southern California, not New York or Alabama, vibe. Similarly, ECA gives a Northeastern feel.

    So why should Italy be some unrealistic hodgepodge of the North and South in a realistic game?

    Differences are not that marked between Northern and Southern Italy when it comes to little old towns. In some regions, like Liguria, you literally go from mountainous to coastal in a matter of kilometers.

    I’m gonna guess that the adult ITALIAN probably knows better than a Polish teenager.

    i agree it is pretty big, but i do see a lot of early 2000s bmw wagons in that region, particularly 4-pot diesels. but i would say that a more common car to find would need to be a "brand new" addition, something quirky, interesting, and unique, because that adds to gameplay and the devs seem to favor adding vehicles with a unique feature over bland boring ones (unless the feature is that they're bland and boring, in which case you only really need one or two (pessima)), something like a 4x4 fiat panda? although, that might still be too big. maybe something like a 2003 punto would be better suited. from my experience, that's an extremely common car in southern italy and the balkans, probably other places too.

    The Panda (even in 4x4 guise) is much smaller than the Punto...

    I see lot of those in southern/mid italy in street view.

    Also dash cam videos of Italy I see quite lot of Unos, often with 1 tire missing wheel making effects.

    Cars seem to be quite different in some southern cities vs some northern cities, but city to city varies a lot too, what I have seen in street view, even state of infrastructure seems to vary a lot.

    No, no, the average Italian's car is nowhere near quirky or interesting. Unless you find a grey diesel hatch interesting, of course. But we don't have one, so it would still be a great addition.
    Oh, and here you can see what parts of Italy I have visited, highlighted in red. I have seen both highway and small coastal town traffic. No big city centre traffic, but our Italy map doesn't have them anyway. I did see cars like Passat, 9-3, Giulia or even 5 series, but they were really scarce.

    i just meant that it wouldn't be a beamng car without some quirks and features :p
    im sure nobody wants a boring car with no redeeming qualities besides it's efficiency in their favorite driving simulator. but yes, grey diesel hatch is probably the most accurate description of (almost) all of europe's car of choice.

    the fait uno mod is a wonderful choice though, if only it had an NA diesel option!
    i suppose that's what the "mods of mods" subcategory is for though

    I wonder how much things have changed since street view visited those places, different cities look quite different, some have much more modern cars and some have bit older:

    2000 lettering for the ETK I. Ether I never noticed these or these are new and hinting at a 2L I6.

    Look, last I checked, Italy was in Europe. Much like in the rest of Europe, spaces are indeed tighter than the US, and average cars smaller as a consequence, but it's not like Italy turned into a real-life Lilliput overnight... :rolleyes:

    I'd quite honestly love to see a little early to mid 2000s hatchback with a Diesel engine that is generic in every way possible
