    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.​

    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.

    Cool but... where is indicator?
    1. aljowen
      Author's Response
      Shouldn't be any different to your normal key map? The dashboard shows the indicators are on with green flashing areas, from what I remember the should have front and rear indicators functioning. However, it is only the flares that are working, the textures don't change.
