    Pigeon counterpart cars include but I'm sure are not limited to:

    while it's a bit larger, the mazda t1500 is also a reasonably close match, albeit a bit more heavy duty.

    Huge?

    Let's not forget the Pigeon's burly farm cousins...

    Just picture driving one of these things in BeamNG...

    Anyway, getting back on topic. I think that when the Pigeon eventually does get its overhaul, we're going to see new wheel options, and the 'flames' paint job will be made colourable.

    So what can we expect for Pigeon remaster? And to be honest, I thought people were joking about it but looks like it will be happening at some point...
    -Since we can count Reliant Robin, an extended passenger version?
    -A pre facelift or facelift version?
    -Updated JBeam?
    -More wheels option and update for ''Flames'' paint job as YellowRusty said?
    -Config with Small Island Observatory skin included?
    -Fat Pijon?

    I actually would not be surprised for a DIY sort of EV conversion, powered by a rather weak yet torquey electric motor, and a pack of 12V batteries, prehaps even ones re-used from other cars.
    Also, maybe a proper box truck, kind of like the Vanster has a van rear, but also there's a van with a box truck rear.
    And an option of fatter tires at the back, for those who insist on hot-rodding it?

    But I really doubt how much additional content and effort would go into the Pigeon. It's a nice car, but there are vehicles much more desperate for an overhaul (200bx, Pessima anyone?)

    I hate to say it, but I think the blob pessima is there specifically not to receive love... and besides a light refresh, I don't think it needs much. My only question is "wen lat 90's blob gravel?"

    I think it actually needs some love texture-wise. For starters, its digital clock is purely superficial (as are the clocks of the 1988 Pessima, the Covet and the Grand Marshal)!
    The 1988 Pessima looks fresh compared to it!

    Yeah, the textures are exactly what I was thinking of, and I'm glad to find someone else is annoyed by the static clock :D

    You're not alone! :-D
    Tbh, for some inexplicable reason, the clock is the first thing I look at the dashboard of the Pessimas, it's both prominent and discreet at the same time!
    But in the 1996 Pessima, the interior in general needs an update because, for example, even if you change the interior colour from beige to black and then remove the seats, it still is beige underneath, unlike all other models offering this choice (D-Series, Roamer, Grand Marshal etc)!

    I'm not so sure, I have a feeling it may end up with the Wendover/LeGran treatment of "give it optional AWD and make it a surprisingly competant performance car". It does already have the nomi aero kit after all.

    I find it funny how it has an entire hillclimb body kit available but no performance options to even make use of it lol

    "I'm not so sure, I have a feeling it may end up with the Wendover/LeGran treatment of "give it optional AWD and make it a surprisingly competant performance car". It does already have the nomi aero kit after all."

    It's also got Independent Rear Suspension right from the "factory", so it offers a decent tuning base!

    (Sorry for the weird way this post looks, I forgot to quote :p)

    Australia map is also missing even tho, also we got 2 rhd cars, but it cant be that hard to make rhd cars for all the cars in beamng, just mirror the dash.

    You can't just mirror the dash. You need also mirror suspension due to having steering wheel on the right. So you need make basically new dash and new suspension parts.

    What do you hope for 0.22.X or 0.23 new updates/teasers?

    Do you all think that there are few teasers?
