    hello!

    I was wondering if it is possible to make some car parts stronger. Is there a mod for? can I do it self?

    Thanks!

    That is possible.
    first, you will have to make a copy of the .jbeam file of the parts you want to modify, then put them in documents/beamng.drive/mods/unpacked/new folder/vehicles/car name/

    Next, open them in notepad++ (or just normal notepad), then change the part name on the second line (like "hatch_bumper_F") to something unique (like hatch_bumper_F_strong), to stop it from overwriting the standard bumper, then change the name like "Unpainted Front Bumper" to "Unpainted Strong Front Bumper" (so you can tell which one it is in the part selector.)

    then scroll down until you find the "beams" section. then go through the "beamstrength", "beamdeform", "beamspring", and "beamdamp" values and just make the numbers bigger. then go into the game, reload the vehicle with ctrl+R, and the change should be applied.

    I haven't created any jbeam structures before so correct me if I am wrong, but can't you also replace the values with 'FLT_MAX' (or something similar) to make the beam have infinite strength?
