If it gonna happen at 3.5 months it'll be at Dec. 2nd
Considering that's a Monday and updates usually occur in the second half of the week I'm gonna speculate either 27-29th of November or 4-6th of December
No you baloney faced buffoon, Its a prequel to the sequel.
Long ago I suggested that the T-series should be able to tote a 240mm howitzer. I stand by this statement.
I have no doubt this suits major automotive manufacturers just fine.
Would a modern missile platform be possible? Even if it's one of those that only shoot fireworks.
The gun so powerful it can practically delete a midsize sedan.
I'm looking at you Pessima, be very afraid.
I would prefer disposability to dying in a highway crash.
destroyed vehicle + living driver > slightly less destroyed vehicle + dead driver
Well I don't think that a driver would die in a 10mph crash. Also the strength of the suspension does not affect crash safety

The CIWS mod is good, however making its missiles fly at 0.7mach rather than 1.5mach will decrease the computing resource required.
Not really... I wish the physics were even faster for the missiles as is, both the skeleton and the control would benefit from higher updates already.
Looks like my guess is incorrect. 1.5mach is roughly 500m/s and divided by 2000Hz is 0.25m/Hz which is slightly less than the length of a beam on an average vehicle
Cars are designed to get you from point a to point b safely and efficiently.
Would you rather be unharmed but your car is damaged, or do you want to hurt yourself and have your car be fine?
Besides, I can't imagine getting into a fender bender and your car becomes immobilized. That's not how modern safety systems work.
Will the car suffer the brunt of the impact? Yes, yes it will. But that doesn't mean that it would be destroyed in a fender bender.
Your logic has more holes than a golf course.
Well in the Sunburst Rally if you maintain a two-wheel moment for more than a second or two the front steering may snap, I got this twice when rallying. May be I'm wrong and the Sunburst is weaker than its IRL counterpart. The ETK800 and the Sunburst often get immobilized after a fender bender.
I had said too much unnecessary (and possibly incorrect) words in the #19260, I reclarify it below:
Because of the wall is rigid, the heavier the vehicle, the worse the result, the opposite is true in real-world driving situation. For example in an actual crash, a 2/5 heavy vehicle is more or less of the same safety of a 5/5 lightweight vehicle.
The result of the crash test criteria is modern vehicles often lower their weight (and rigidity) to improve the test score. They just make sure the passenger compartment strong "enough"(see below) and weight reduction on everthing else.
Even more so, the lighter the vehicle, the less the passenger compartment strength is "required" to get the same score. In other words, if two vehicles get the same crash testing score, the heavier one has a stronger passenger compartment.
Funny trivia, modern BMWs usually disable their starter batteries once an airbag deployed. So even if technically you could still drive, the car won't let you.
Is it to prevent a person from fleeing the scene of a crash?
no, to prevent fires
Probably more for safety, so the engine doesn’t kill you or something in a malfunctioning state.
yes, but bmw also make front grilles the size of billboards, so they're not exactly sound in the brains department
When fuel injection started to become popular, they started putting such relay to car that it did kill fuel pump when car was not upright.
I can't remember for sure, but I think that after rolling a car you needed to reset that relay in order to get going again.
Anyway that was to prevent fires too, but if we think driving in BeamNG, so many times I have drive away after rolling a car, it is like those battery power killing relays, neither is allowing us to drive same way IRL than we do drive in BeamNG.
But for weak cars, there is this:
With K-series, can't remember how many times I have managed to get struts pop up on top of hood, just hitting sandpit at Hirochi with speed can make something crack crackle pop in K-series front suspension.
Nobody has borrowed me similar car in IRL for scientific testing of this matter, so it is hard to say how much of such punishment K-series should take, but amount of bend suspension I have seen at BMW garage tells me it happens a lot, from some odd reason
Considering how there are people in the world who runs away when they get into a crash, that was what initially hit my mind.
