    (REPOST)I know that BeamNG has no ad placement, although when I went on YouTube today...

    I find this unacceptable, as this is a pirated copy and more than likely has viruses or malware. I just wanted to alert the moderators and/or devs about this. As this is awful and must be taken down due to copyright.
    These ads will cause the downfall of BeamNG, a point made by @Grind86.

    The saddest part is that THIS IS YOUTUBE, which is no place for that.
    I also saw one for minecraft btw.

    Wouldn't that be funny if it redirected you to the Steam page of BeamNG.drive

    Here's my old post about this:

    "My take: How the [BLEEP] could BeamNG.Drive be free? The real game costs money and I highly doubt this was made by the devs. If we let stuff like this continue. We're gonna start seeing the downfall of BeamNG.Drive and we'll also see kids complaining about how the game isn't free. If you wanna let the devs know about this, I recommend you put this in the General Discussion category."

    Anyways, here's my new post. Thanks Phym. I think this ad is really shady and the version of BeamNG on that ad is likely older then 0.18.

    It doesn't I clicked on it. It says that you can "play" Beam for free and download it AND there will be ads

    This stuff is all over the internet, and all over the App Store. It does suck, but I don't really know how much can be done about it, or how much effort that would require.

    But this isn't a rip off, it IS advertising "BeamNG".

    Beamng is just such a good and realistic game, that it's just so appealing to use in ads and/or use it to wrongly advertise another game.

    Fair point. However, I think the devs should at least try to stop ads like these. If we keep getting ads like this, kids will complain about how BeamNG isn't free.

    Typical youtube this, removing peoples channels because they said swearwords a few times, but accepting everything as long as they get money. Lately I have also seen a few ads saying ''Russian ladies want to fuck in your area'' and such.... Youtube really has become a shit company
