    I think the grip on street cars and offroad cars is perfect but race cars lack a little grip.

    I was more talking about the hillclimb versions - with these gigantic wings i think they should have a bit more grip and they should also not take off that much when hitting a kerb.

    No, it's just PBR (physically based rendering)

    Can't wait for my gaming rig to officially become obsolete because of this. It never stopped the random BSOD fits so it probably needs a replacement something or other anyway, but I need that money for IRL car stuff!

    Maybe, i forgot to add that they said in the documentation that linux will be supported, and since torque can't run on linux, that certainly means Vulkan is coming.

    I wonder if/when BeamNG will get post processing stuff like motion blur/radial blur for photo mode
    It's a small hope of mine that it comes with all the PBR stuff

    What do you mean? PBR is even simpler than traditional material systems. Games like War Thunder implemented PBR years ago and there was no performance hit, I could run that on my old gaming laptop with a 1050 with 0 issues.

    but war thunder is a masterpiece of optimization, I don't know if beamng devs will manage to reach gaijin's level

    Right now the game does a render pass for each layer, as long as PBR doesn't add more layers we won't see a performance hit.

    Those truck wheels are the best thing for a long time, not only possible PBR, they look hella good with those sligtly worn textures too

    "Physically Based Rendering", and as you can see makes the game look 200% better at least
