    Between the fact that many people don't notice interiors and that every car in game lacks interior options, I doubt we will see anything soon. Probably see interior improvements in batches at a later date since they all need to get the dashboards seperated, many need alternate seats and gauge clusters, etc... It's just easier to takle stuff like that in batches but it's also probably low priority.

    I'm going to put myself in the minority again but I'm going to state for the record that in Beam I use first-person camera almost exclusively.

    Ever since I got my G29 in September I have too. But Beam is in a weird niche of having sim physics (encouraging first person camera) while also havig softbody physics, which is best appreciated in third person and attracts a younger crowd who prefers third person.

    The situation with interiors certainly is an immersion issue for the detail oriented and those that perfer first person, but I can understand why it would be low priority for the team.

    Since we are talking about Interiors, one big thing that annoys me is with the Beater Covet and the Terrible variants. How come the outside is mostly worn looking but the interiors remind me or some sort of low mile "survivor". completely destroys Immersion for me.

    Guessing that worn out interiors could be done with some sort of overlay, allowing for multiple coloured interiors, similar to the rust and dirt textures.

    Relating to the Covet interior, and all the interiors I suppose, the fact that the turn signal lights don’t fit into the turn signal markers annoys me. In some of the cars, like the Covet, the turn signal shape isn’t even the same as the turn signal marker.

    the 87 F-series was a facelift of the 80-86 F-series. same with the 92 F-series and the 87-91 F-series. the front clip, interior, and engine compartment all got makeovers throughout those three generations. for GM, all of their trucks used the same basic structure from about 73 to 86 (91 for the Suburban)

    Seeing how much the D-Series and Roamer seem to be getting, plus the Charro and Cherrier coming, I would be surprised to see any focus on the H-Series this update just due to the sheer amount of other stuff they have been working on. I'm sure some stuff will carry over like most updates for the platform, but I'd be surprised to see anything dedicated to it.


    I like how after the update speculation thread gets unlocked we are almost turning this thread into it now.

    In regards to the roadsport pickup, I find it kind of weird that in the previous update, they changed the roadsport to be RWD rather than AWD, despite leaving the roamer RS AWD.
    In fact, considring the addition of the stepside tub, It would be interesting if there were 2 generations of roadsport config: the first being a classic muscle truck, with a big (hopefully 423 or bigger) maybe even supercharged V8, a stepside tub, and lots of chrome, similar to the dodge lil' red express.
    the facelift version could be more like the existing one, with AWD added back, keeping the full-width tub, and more body coloured/black trim, more like a GMC syclone.
    Also, I'd hope they're also getting around to updating the 4.1 I6 engine finally, though, to be honest, doesn't really make sense in the roamer's era to me. If they were to add a "classic V8" option, I could see the 4.1 being replaced by a modernised, enlarged 232 I6, with a V6 something like GM's vortec or ford's Cologne V6, (even just a 4.5 V8 mesh with 2 cylinders chopped out would suffice, IMO) and use it in the roamer, more passenger-ish vans, and perhapsp the facelift pickup.
    This would also make for a cracker of an engine for the AWD roadsport.
    Ideally (in my mind), that would leave the gavril d/h/r with an available:
    ~240ci I6, ~4.0 V6, 4.5 V8, 5.5 V8, 353 v8, 6.0 TD V8, ~450ci V8.
    (come to think of it, an OHV diesel, possibly an I6, would also be a good addition for the '85 pickup)

    What about the Chevrolet 454SS with the massive 7.4 liter V8 and was only in RWD because that way more in line with current D15 Roadsport than the AWD and V6 powered Syclone.

    Will there ever be modern trucks from the devs though? Like the F150 or Raptors were really interesting and cool looking to me.

    I think that: for the 85+ you have a carbourated version of the 4.1 I6 and the Barstow V8s (similar to @AR162B 's Old-style) and maybe a two-stroke Detroit-Diesel style V8 diesel. For the newer trucks you have the 4.5, 5.5 a ~4.0 EFI V6 to replace the carb I6, a larger V8 (6.0+) or maybe a Magnum V10 type motor and the 6.0 Diesel. That's just my opinion of what the motors could be for the Gavril lineup. Don't know what happened to the quote but I'm also new to quote trimming so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    That’s not supposed to happen on a truck let alone one in real life. This is a simulator not some arcady type shit where you can fling off a cliff and do a few flips and land it and mot get any damage. It’s probably breaking because you’re going 80+ into a dune.

    (This is a fix cause my last post didn't quote properly and it was bugging me so I fixed it)

    Two things the D15 RS Sport needs.
    1. Bucket seats
    2. Performance decals of some sort.

    My dad had a 99 GMC Suburban K1500, which had plastic everywhere, including the interior and exterior door handles.
