    people did get quite some time to warm up for it though, Roughly 7 years or so.


    its kinda hilarious that people still bring up the ancient crap from the early days:p

    Oh ok. I didn't know he meant the voting, which is basically the mistake as people will massively only vote for a vehicle they would buy themselves, not for a vehicle that suits the game. Plus imo it adds just more risks for the project, because it increases the pressure of what you should do or not.

    The D-Series makes sense on paper, as the devs basically just took the F-Series and shifted it back to be '86-'03 instead of '80-'97. While AR162B showed that it is possible to get a major pre-facelift on the current H-Series, it's going to be more difficult to pull off.

    While your spreadsheet certainly is more pretty, I think this shows how extreme the '82-'02 emphasis is a bit more. I do think this era should be weighted a bit heavier as these cars are affordable but with nearly modern performance (compared to vintage cars) so they are great for career mode, but about half of our roster comes from this 2 decade span right now, which is just excessive. A lot of people seem to ignore that we have a lot of deficiencies pre-1982 as well as post-2002; both of the tails are rather skinny.

    Yes that 2003 - 2008 ''gap in the timeline'' is really something ive been thinking about when it comes to beamng vehicles.

    As far as I know, that's from the Rigs of Rods days, and RoR is not canon to BeamNG.

    Its in the same universe but not canonically connected o_O

    Some kind of ''the floor is made out of floor'' type of logic

    I made a mistake though, it folded in 1985.

    It's also really odd how 2006 and 2007 have no vehicles made, not to mention 1956 and 57 i think it is? the 2 years before the piccolina started.

    They don't need to be online to see it, though.

    It's not that odd. Like I said before, major cars for derby/banger race should be from 80s and 90s (these are just cheap). Older than that would be too expensive if that car is in "cool classic" category. More modern would be too expensive to turn them into a scrap after the race. Basically every modern car in game were for testing new features like ESC, aero, unibody etc.

    Wasn't the facelifted Roamer produced from 2000-2006? It isn't a proper 2000s car, as it is simply a facelift, but it was a car produced to 2006 before turning into a new generation.

    I think, would to be perfect to fit one small european car like
    Ford Fiesta 2003-2008
    Opel Corsa C 2000-2006
    VW Polo 2002-2008

    And one european Truck (Actross,fh12,daf xf,...)
    And Something British...

    We have enought American Cars and Maps

    Not the correct place to post this. Vehicle Suggestions might be good. This is the update speculation thread.

    honestly, i feel like this thread isnt gonna be doing much speculating for a while seeing as...well, where are the devs gonna go now? we always had something that we knew was coming, but now i guess we just wait until the devs announce something.

    I imagine by now they’re starting to finish up career mode. My guess is it will release in about a year.

    I’d be very surprised if every developer was currently working on career mode (let alone “finishing up”). For people like vehicle artists and level designers, I wouldn’t be surprised if they had a few projects up their respective sleeves behind the scenes as well, as I’m not sure they would be able to fully use their abilities within career mode’s development cycle.

    Well I meant that their finishing up compared to how long they've been working on career mode.

    IIRC, it was gabester that said BeamNG was a separate universe from Rigs of Rods despite containing some of the same brands. (He was a Rigs modder before he was a Beam dev, and some people were wondering if his RoR mods would ever be remade into official BeamNG content.)

    Wiki is currently deprecated and has long been infamous for both outdated information and people trying to post fanon/headcanon/RP type stuff. Without checking the edit history on that page, I'm going to go out on a limb and say whoever put that there was probably going off RoR-era lore. (One of Gabe's mods was a Burnside if I remember correctly, so that could have something to do with it.)
