    I really doubt the burnside is getting a refresh. Or alteast the body is staying the same. I distinctly remember Gabester saying how hard it was to model and get right with all the curves and round shapes that car has.

    The '53 Special deserves the 2/4 door hardtop/sedan treatment as much as the Bluebuck did.

    And all of the old American cars could use their racing configs refreshed. Simpler roll cages like the Bluebuck's, period correct skins, etc... And most of them could use gasser configs, but we can only hope we will see those someday...

    A salt flats car would be great to see, though rather useless without salt flats.

    I understand that because of what the Bluebuck and the Grand Marshall got that everyone want's the older released cars to have a overhaul. But you have to remember that this is not a EA size company. There are vehicles that are in need of overhaul's rather than additions or smaller changes.

    At some point the game's older content has to be brought up to par. Seeing as they remodeled a lot of cars in the past year, remastered the GM, gave a ton of new configs to the T-Series, and scheduled the D/H-Series and Roamer for major updates, it seems like now is that time. Which means it's a fair time to talk about what cars could use what updates.

    Example of something that really needs attention: The '53 Special and Bluebuck are both American Fullsize cars and only 10 years apart in model years, but look at the massive difference in content. The '53 Special only has 8 configs and still lacks some basic ones like a stock car.

    Sorry I was a bit....... lacking in explanation due to being sick at the moment. What I'm trying to say is this. The Burnside is only missing a few minor parts while something like the H-series is missing entire vehicle changing configurations and unique crash effects. I am NOT trying to say the Burnside don'st need new configs and parts I'm just saying they are less important than something like the H-series. I was going to make a list of vehicles that need the most work but since I don't know J beams too well all I'm going to say is this.
    The H-series is in need of the most work atm. It's missing a lot of good stuff for it's frame. Bolide is currently the lowest quality vehicle (in terms of configurations and graphical fidelity compared to others). Last for me is the 90's Pessima which needs a interior fix to get rid of the Beige lining that is on every interior option.
    I want the Burnside to get a updated but as it is now it's in really good shape and handles perfectly for a limited edition ""luxury"" 1950's car.

    I posted some rambling about the lack of racing disciplines in the Vehicle Suggestion Thread if anyone has thoughts about that topic. Currently the game doesn't have many considering the intended scope of the game, and with traffic and drag racing implemented in the last update it seems like a fair time to bring this up. Of course there are a ton of racing disciplines out there but I brought up a couple that I think would be particularly interesting to see.


    Vehicle suggestions (See first post)

    I wonder where will devs get ideas for cars after the Wendover. Maybe the concept list? Or the vehicle suggestions thread?

    I would hope vehicle suggestions thread would have a little sway in that area

    I would too, there’s for sure some great stuff in there. I’d be amazed if devs actually actively monitored that thread, though, at least right now.

    I wish The Devs At Least Put Up Some Serious Rules on that Thread

    I agree, some suggestions there are very detailed and very unique.

    There's a lot that's missing just to have a healthy career mode. I would think the next couple of cars would be chosen with career mode in mind, in the same way that the 2012-2013 batch was chosen with a demo derby game in mind.

    The vehicle suggestion thread is a disaster, I wouldn't want to be the poor employee told to sort through that for the 1 in 20 decent posts that would even be considerable, especially when there are so many gaps in the vehicle roster that suggestions are not that necessary now.

    One option would be a thread(s) that says "we are looking for suggestions for a car to full X niche, justify something you want which fits the criteria". Example, we need a medium duty truck. There's a ton of options that could fit that and I can think of four different options which members have given good arguments for. If the devs want a medium duty truck they could take suggestions for that specific vehicle type they could make a thread asking for suggestions and have a community vote or something for the best ones.

    I'd much prefer a poll asking which vehicle niches should be the priority, with options such as "90's European Hatchback or 50's American Pickup Truck" so on and so forth and people could pick a certain number of vehicle types. There would be a ton of options, sure, but it would get them really useful results.

    if the BeamNG devs needed someone to go through the Vehicles Suggestions thread and there was some money involved, I would do it in a heartbeat

    I'm sure you would, but I doubt a full time employee who should be getting paid for more fulfilling work would be so enthusiastic. Imagine getting paid for watching paint dry, but the paint spams photos and roleplay ideas.

    Making windshields pop out isn't easy. Believe me I've tried. it's all well and good making it detach, the issue is how it interacts with the car after. Flat jbeam objects don't interact with vehicles in nice ways.
