I take it back. Removing the "funny" rating was the worst decision the site staff ever made.
If the devs we're to add / create a new map, Norway, Sweden, or Iceland would be a cool new addition, IMO.
Do you guys think a South Korean brand in the game would make sense? It could add diversity, but there isn't much that could make it stand out.
Have it be about 10 years behind in the best possible way, just like the real Korean brands. Still selling a V6-powered liftback coupe in 2007 (and an excellent one at that), or a somewhat reasonable sport compact in 2017.
Oh Korea... never change. Despite your utter (and government-enforced) lack of home-market car culture, you may yet become the last bastion of somewhat enjoyable everyday cars.
The Safrane was Renault punching out of its league, with the Biturbo being way beyond what Renault normally did.
I agree we need French car. It can mix a bit of everything, some Citroen here, Some Renault there, Some Peugeot over there. Heck, Bugatti deep down is french so release a supercharged variant and call it something Bugatti-ish. I can assure you it can turn out to be the most interesting car in the game.
Oh, without doubt.
I don’t really care too much what the new car is as long as it’s something relatively modern and sold in the US (doesn’t matter what country it comes from) so we can drive it (and also use it as traffic) on most if not all of the beam maps. Although I am hoping it’s something like a cheapo crossover or some kind of pickup (Japanese pickup would be interesting). Nothing too over the top luxurious or extremely sporty since currently all the modern cars (except for the base sunburst) are either luxurious or really sporty.
Bugatti is french just on the surface, its founder being an italian immigrant who exported the italian approach to grand tourers to Alsace, possibly the least "french" region of France, the current incarnation of the brand being more of a follow-up to Artioli's modenese parenthesis of the brand.
For a highly-representative french car, I would take inspiration from Citroën (DS, CX) or Alpine (A110) or a mix of both (Citroën SM lookalike, with some Alpine A310 styling cues...?).
Id Iove a euro style van (modern) possibly a charmand or a etk like my etk van concept
Most importantly a European, meaning non boxy ambulance
Id say more Renault, Citroen and Peugeot, rather than "obscure" sources like Alpine. (I mean, we know that brand, but the A110 isnt as representative as the Renault 4 or the Citroen DS/SM/2CV are. Hell even toss some Peugeot 205GTI to the mix.
About the Bugatti thing, exactly, deep, very deep, it still has some french in it, so we can say that it is atleast 1% french and make a trim out of it. It was just an idea thought.

Almost no one uses the H Series, so it would be pretty much pointless.
Because it decides to steer to the right really hard with the solid axle suspension which makes it absolute hell to use.. Not only that, it isn't as high quality as the rest of the vehicles. I'd use it more if it was just better overall.
Fair enough, hopefully that is fixed with the revamp
Change thinking that BeamNG is a sandbox and think that core of the game would be career mode and others challenges. It is pointless to get it right now, but someday we'll need this in game.
Late 80s-late 90s renaults were absolutely gorgeous, especially interior wise. French cars could be interesting if they actually bothered to try and start thinking out of the box a little again, at least design-wise. And, of course, if consumers were actually interested in cars that are out of the ordinary, like what seemed to be the case back when the Citroen BX was a best seller in its class.
As for the possible new addition to BeamNG's "fleet", I agree with the idea of having something that resembles a mix of a few different iconic french cars from the past. Bonus points if it has a single-spoke steering wheel and hydropneumatic suspension.
Even a self leveling suspension the safrane had would be quite a nice addition.
Think even more french man, hydropneumatic suspension!
A Citroën C6 with a 3l V6 biturbo diesel <3
Nah Just put a baguette on wheels with a big wang
Source on that one?
You'll have to trust this old episode of Top Gear (from back when Top Gear was a serious educational show). The time stamp doesn't seem to work, but if you go to 2:38 you'll hear Jeremy Clarkson claim the BX is the best selling diesel on the British market.
