Alpha Raven R60 v63

Family hatchback / Rally Car / Electric Race Car / Off-Roader / etc..

    Heads Up
    If your vehicle spawns with a white gauge cluster, respawn it with [ctrl+r] and it should work fine after that point.

    Merry Christmas… I guess? :p

    What is it?

    It’s a small family car, intended to compete with cars like the VW Golf , Renault Clio , Hyundai i20 etc. But from a brand that values lightness.

    There are also a bunch of variations, including an electric race car, WRC inspired Rally Car, and even a stripped hardcore electric off roader. As well as this there are bunch of mythical (aka unrealistic) components that can be added to the vehicle, these are denoted with a ‘~’ in front of their names in the parts selector (for example, a 1000hp engine).

    The stock models are tuned to be safe and controllable to drive everyday, however, with the ESC disabled it is possible to get the rear end sliding a small amount. If fiddling with wheel alignments is your thing, the chassis responds well to going sideways.

    The jbeam was built from scratch specifically for this vehicle. It features independent mcpherson strut suspension on all 4 corners (unorthodox I know). It also includes a towing hitch option, as well as a roof box and bike rack, should you want them.

    The Interactive Digital Dashboard

    Yes, this car has a fully digital interactive dashboard!
    It has its own integrated cruise control systems and a G-Meter.

    Up = 't'
    Down = 'g'
    Menu/Select = 'y'

    A Massive Thank You to:
    All the BeamNG devs, your mod support has been invaluable. Without you, this car wouldn't be 10% of what it is currently.
    @gabester , for allowing me to use his album art on the infotainment system.
    @roy99669 for user testing at many stages throughout development.

    Backstory (Why "Alpha"?)

    The R60 is the first jbeam I ever started, it is the vehicle that I used to learn how to mod BeamNG. However, as is always the case with “learning on the job”, lots of mistakes were made. While I have had massive amounts of fun working on and driving the R60, it’s been over 4 years since development started, and its clearer than ever that it will never be finished. So, I am releasing it as is. It may receive updates with cool new things, it may never receive an update. This is a hobby for me, so it will depend entirely on whether I feel like working on it or not. Now that it is public, hopefully other people (ie. You) will be able to have fun with it too :).

    By releasing the R60 as is, I can allow myself to spend more time working on newer more exciting things, rather than constantly trying to tie up loose ends on this mod.

    Tldr: This mod will never be finished, but it may still receive updates from time to time.​

    Love it! It runs some insane times in the quarter mile and all the variants are very fun to drive around a city or town.

    Great mod! I love the functionality of the gauge cluster! I just wish for an automatic version or a choice to swap in an automatic transmission for more easier cruising...

    This mod is pretty cool! It definitely has quite a lot of quality and work put into it, which is great, but there are some flaws that made me give it only 3 stars in the review.
    First of all the car feels rather unfinished (which is normal as it's an alpha) the outside doesn't have that "vanilla" look that high quality finished mods have, and the interior doesn't either (probably one of the reasons the interior feels unfinished is the lack of details and texture
    The car also has some other issues, like the crashing being quite spiky in some places like the doors (although it's very good in other places somehow) or the thumbnails not matching the vanilla thumbnails and some being missing (which is pretty important for me, someone who loves to see a nice clean car selection menu)
    If this was just any alpha mod with these flaws i'd have given it 4 stars, however. The reason i gave it three is because of the fact that the author said that he's not finishing it. I underestand modding is a hobby and not an obligation, and his intrest may shift to other things but, while that is completely fine, if one abandons a mod while unfinished they can't expect to recive good ratings, as the mod won't achieve the quality other finished mods do.

      Thanks for the review :)

      I can tell that you have read the OP, so you know the story. So here is a video of what I have been working on since:
      Its a RWD convertible sports car with around 300hp from an NA V6.

      Obviously, I can't guarantee that it will ever be finished, but hopefully it shows why I have diverted time away from the R60, and what I am hoping to release some day. Preferably in a more complete state than the R60.
