Buckle up, heavy traffic ahead: Update 0.17 released

Hello everyone!

The new update is out! It’s been a huge collaborative effort, but we’re very happy with the results, and we hope you enjoy 0.17.

The 1963 Gavril Bluebuck joins our growing, diversifying list of vehicles including 33 variants to drive and customize, along with a wealth of mod parts and our first-ever hydraulic suspension. In addition, we have extensively improved the deformation behavior of most of the vehicles in the game. You’ll be able to enjoy the improved deformation more easily than ever, with seamless dynamic traffic now just a click away in the radial menu. There is also now a drag minigame at the West Coast drag strip, and the AI might just give you a run for your money πŸ˜‰

In addition to vehicle-related work, we have spent a significant amount of time and effort overhauling our older levels to bring them up to the standard we’ve established with the newer ones. East Coast, Hirochi Raceway, and the Derby map have received extensive overhauls to improve visual quality, gameplay, and performance.

We are also proud to have achieved some serious performance improvements on both the CPU and GPU side, massively optimizing vehicle rendering and significantly improving level rendering.


But wait, there’s more…In this update, you’ll also find some very experimental features:

Greetings from the BeamNG team. Enjoy!
