    In this thread I'm going to talk about my view towards the current BeamNG as my Feedback to suggest ideas that makes the simulator even better! BeamNG.drive has a huge potential to be world's best vehicle simulation which englobes specific vehicle simulations into one sim (e.g. bus simulator).


    Suggestions:
    -Improve the AI to be able to park, stop at traffic lights, brake smoothly and avoid bad situations in general.

    -Make the Bus Routes blend into the traffic with AI buses driving and stopping in bus stations in Freeroam Mode.

    -AI ambulance appearing occasionally on traffic, sometimes in a hurry with siren on, sometimes not.

    -At night, having groups of Street Custom vehicles spawning, racing against eachother.

    -Having police AI to react to a normal AI traffic infligement.

    -Be able to download the old versions of an official map and keep the most recent. (feature for people that didn't like something about a reworked map)

    -Create a map with a huge scale englobing cities, towns, countryside, forests, mountains, rivers, lakes and ocean.

    -Be able to get out of the car in first person as a walk-around mode (doesn't need to have a body like in RoR, just to appreciate cars and scenery as in person scale).

    -Built-in Weather System (rain, thunder, fog etc).

    -Working Night Lights (lamp posts, buildings).

    -More car interactions like open the doors, hood, trunk, turn on wipers and being able to click in the cockpit to enable or disable something.

    -More vehicles and utilitary vehicles.

    -Race Mode that you race against AI in the existing maps.

    -Built-in Ambulance and Firefighter Missions? (as you can already be a bus driver and go through routes)

    -Be able to create and upload a car livery.

    -Tire termperature affecting the tire performance.

    -Improve Aerodynamic simulations (e.g. in real life if a car get pitched forward at 200km/h the car would do a flip airborne).

    -More scripted mechanical damage for the car (apart from gearbox and engine damaging).

    -More variety to each car costumization.

    -Different car paint material.

    -Tire trails on dirt, sand, grass and mud.

    -Paint Scratches.

    -Airbags for modern vehicles.

    -Make the oil and fuel visible on ground after damaging or crashing.


    And this is all I could think of, hope you can get something out of it.

    I belive BeamNG.drive is the ultimate vehicle simulator. There is a built in "bus simulator" in it, there could be a lot more than that, possibilities are endless.

    The realism of soft-body physics is the closest thing a car simulator could have to real life. Every single piece of metal has its own weight and creates more drag depending on how deformed it is, affecting the performance of the car. I love this game and I appreciate the effort the development team is giving to this outstanding simulator. At first the crashing was its only charm, now it's growing and becoming a car simulator anyone could only dream of. Keep up the great work, I can only express my gratitude for what you are doing.

    That would be cool.

    Would probably too large and laggy.

    No. They won’t make a walk mode.

    To be honest, I like this ideas, but you have to do some digging in the forums before you go suggesting. Paint scratches and walking mode have been suggested many times, and the devs have said that that’s not happening.

    these two seem completely possible and would be a great addition to the game.

    this exists in the world editor, it doesn't change the environment around you or the car's handling but at least its there

    I was thinking more about a dynamic weather system rather than setting the desired weather everytime.

    This isnt a big thing but it would be cool to see a "pre facelift" of the piccolina with this kind of rear window. I know the piccolina is a italian car but other cars in this game are also a mix of different cars

    Some more suggestions that I couldn't add:

    -Better rear view mirrors.

    -Be able to choose left or right hand driving in the vehicle configurations.

    -Breakable street signs, lamp posts, and other objects that currently behave like concrete.

    Some more suggestions tha
    It's all about optimization, as AI traffic could be greatly optimized as well.

    also people should stop trying to run this game on a decade old dell optiplex

    if you want more feature in the game optimization either needs to ramp ups or the minimum specs for the game need to be raised. They are already very low end anyways

    Please use the search bar, and also common sense.
    Lots of the suggestions has been discussed previously or out of scope.

    "Be able to create and upload a car livery"
    You're already able to do this, as in creating a skin.

    consider how slow game is growing it will take 100 years to make because every update is only some remasters and sometimes new car and some very small features

    Building a car from scratch takes a lot of time. The small features you're talking about, easily can be time and resource consuming as well. And those things are just a small part, of what is actually in each update.

    To educate yourself on what goes into updates, please read the DevBlog where they post full change logs.
    Here's the latest, I had to put it in a spoiler because there is so much.
    It's not "some" or "only." It's a lot of work.

    The 2020 Winter Release – BeamNG v0.21
    15 December 2020

    Today we’re here to spill some much-needed hot news to your screens with the release of version 0.21! Featuring a complete Jungle Rock Island map renovation, bringing new locations to explore and a myriad of updated roads for that sunny winter getaway, as well as revamped vegetation and a brand-new waterfalls zone.

    If a tropical paradise isn’t up your alley, you’ll be happy to hear that West Coast USA received an improvement pass, including multiple new locations and the addition of two new roads – City and Highway Tunnels.

    The long-awaited Gavril D-Series Remaster Part 2 is finally here with updated interiors, lights, revised configurations, and several new D45 variants. This isn’t all for the D-Series, however, hold on to your pedals because the D-Series Prerunner & Crawler models are now available and ready to conquer anything you throw at them (or them into).

    We’ve also improved our tire model with new tire-ground contact physics. This has slashed long standing limitations in rolling resistance, high speed grip, and cambered tire behavior. With all tires retuned to take advantage of these changes, our vehicles are handling better than ever.

    Last but not least, we’ve polished official localization for the languages listed below; for more information on how to provide feedback and report issues, please keep an eye on the official Discord server.

    • Spanish (Spain)
    • French (France)
    • Japanese (Japan)
    • Korean (South Korea)
    • Portuguese (Brazil)
    • Portuguese (Portugal)
    • Russian (Russia)
    • Chinese – Simplified
    • Chinese – Traditional
    As always, we would like to thank everyone for your continuous feedback, suggestions, and bug reports! We hope you enjoy the update and wish you Happy Holidays!
