    So, while I was bored yesterday & today, I found out that BeamNG has a translation help site where you can translate the game to a language you know. Since yesterday, while going through all the things that need to be translated, I found some text strings that point to things which haven't been really teased yet & the devs usually said that they won't implement it (which is typical talk for "we'll do it later"):





    Strings added ~3 weeks ago :)

    Sriously this is good news, it means that, some day (or in a couple years) we will eventually have a real career mode.

    I would absolutely love this. Its a relatively small thing, well, just a walking camera is at least. But is always fun imo because you can look at a car in a realistic scale. The "getting out of your car" part is interesting. I wonder if its going to be more of a camera gimmick or if they have bigger plans for it. Defiantly hoping for this one.

    I've been really hoping for this since the start! In the meantime I just use the freecam and try to stay at a normal human height.
    Do you have the link to the translation site?

    I suspected it ever since we had the Jungle Rock Island tiser with the silhouette of a person ... This means that we will definitely have a character and maybe, given the clothing and food ads, we can eat and choose clothing. But that's just my speculation ...

    that on its own doesn't really mean much, ads are just there to make the world feel more inhabited and a human is often used as a scale reference for concept art.
    the JRI remaster teaser/concept art scale reference person.

    Adding to what FalloutNode said, a walking mode doesn't require a visual character, and while customizing a character is not unheard of in driving games, I can't see any way in which eating could be a worthwhile mechanic in BeamNG.

    walking into parts stores would be pretty sweet and kinda make sense if the devs are going for an slrr/ets/forza hybrid type deal

    But that raises the question, will A.I. cars have NPCs driving in the cars?

    Yeah and it's definitely in the realm of possibility since Italy, Utah, and EC/WCUSA all have little shops. Granted they're all a bit different (WCUSA mainly has small repair shops, Italy's are your average Gas station/mechanic spots, and the ones in Utah and ECUSA seem to be more like full tune-up garages), but that could work to the advantage of whatever progression system they come up with (buy a small shoddy shop and work your way up to an actual garage or sum like that)

    Exactly, I see it more as a cool camera gimmick than anything else. Just the camera with a realistic height, ground/object collision, and gravity is more than enough for this game. In fact I would ecstatic to something as such..

    "eat and choose clothes" has a very different meaning than "eat food and choose clothes"


    OT: I've actually never played any Forza games, but I've always admired the Forza Autovista mode. I'd love to a similar gamemode where the player can just walk around the car and interact with different things... Open the hood/doors/trunk, sit in any seat, etc...

    My Summer Car has the walking mode implemented very well imo. Its just a camera set a certain distance from the ground. You can go in buildings and interact with things, you can also walk across the whole map when your car breaks. Also just having a floating camera walking mode wouldn't raise the age rating at all because there is no gore.

    I really doubt they are going to add a physical character. Maybe a floating camera ala MSC or Euro Truck Sim.

    I wonder if this means we may finally get opening doors?
