    Beamng drive is already contributing with automation, i think it could be possible, the dream car builder creator is pretty talkative so he could possibly atleast receive the idea.

    The DCB developer indeed is talkative, but he has been gone for several years, busy with other software. But yeah, a DCB > BeamNG exporter would be cool and probably not too difficult.

    Thanks everyone for the kind words & compliments by the way!
    Haven't done that much over the past few days, progress is slow and steady. I don't think there's much left to do. Mostly just cleaning & finishing stuff up

    Yep! But not that much.

    I'm going to be a bit busy the next few weeks, but I should be able to do some work here and there.
    Casually forgot that the wheel hubs and brakes weren't visible all this time, so I've finally added those and finished up hub placements and whatnot. Using the Pigeon/Wigeon disks and calipers, they may look a little lost with bigger wheels installed lol
    Also made some basic coilover mount brackets

    The hatch can now also break open! You may get your head slapped by it in a crash, may change that..

    Continuing on detailing and I may actually consider making a set of "fixed" chassis fenders. Manx/dune buggy style of course.


    Also, most likely got the 'Rona. Nice. Not feeling severely bad or anything, just a minor sore throat, like a generic cold. I don't wanna get political but..yikes, the governments lie a ton.

    Epic! Will you make the roof and pillars for the roof removable? Would look cool Like a Single seater Formula type race car

    I'll consider a digidash, I don't really care much about those but..if people want it I'll add :)

    Now, here's something stupid and...totally not questionable.

    3 wheeler.

    i think the objective is make it more square because at home i think its not easy to make curved panels

    :cool:
    I love this thing lol.
    3 Wheeler variant fully functioning and made some smoother frames and panelling to go with it.
    Funny thing is that it doesn't roll, at all! Only with a racing tire on the front it'll roll if you try hard enough

    Theres only some minor issues regarding clipping and space but I'll work on that
