    Honestly, I doubt we'll get a sedan covet, but I'm pretty confident we'll see a wagon and/or 5 door body. It just seems like the best way to expand content without doing anything really crazy. Besides, modders will probably make a covet sedan within a month or two.

    It is possible if for example your car is colorable by color 1 and the replacement part is color 2, then col 1 can be metallic and col 2 matte. The problem would be that it would need to dynamically modify the skin you have currently if you have any, to replace part of it. It could be done on another layer, but more than 2 layers with PBR can be laggy. It would be really cool though.

    I hear ya, i feel ya! Not gonna post alot more since its the upd spec thread but heres after an adjustment. Havent looked at them using my phone or tv yet but here they err o_O Note that the shadows are highly depending on the overall balance so everything isnt as dark as it might look from certain views.

    Maybe the devs are planning to extend or expand that system to support more colorable areas? I vaguely remember a screenshot of a Roamer with a multicolored interior around the time colorable parts showed up- maybe it’s more flexible than I thought.
    The skin situation would probably pose a bigger challenge, tho. I’d guess that the UVs (forgive me if I’m using the wrong terminology) would have to be broken up by part somehow, but I have no idea how the game would physically edit the image file and save those changes. I’m guessing it verges on impossible.
    They could do something that maps skin textures to individual parts instead of an entire car, with some lua or something that changes the skin for that specific part if you swap it out.
    It seems unlikely though, I doubt they’re going to practically rewrite the skin system for that. Making skins would be 10x harder and you’d need 10x more images to make a complete livery, but it might allow for skins to work across multiple body styles.

    UVs are broken up by part, there would have to be a system that edits each part individually, probably possible with LUA but idk how it would work with the parts selector and color picker, there could be a new UI section for it

    This is also a problem with the majority of the existing skins in BeamNG as they don't support the ability to have an Old Paint version. Apart from the Grand Marshal Police livery and the standard Two Tone livery of the Gavril D-/H-Series/Roamer, no other livery supports this, which is dramatically limiting variety (say someone finds a race car with its race livery covered in rust or a rusted-out Covet 1.5 ZXi Special Edition/2.0 GTz Special Edition - with the respective graphics for each version - or a rusted-out fire service vehicle or a rusted-out T-Series with the Patriotic livery)!

    About those UVs, anyone else noticed the D-series has a dirt texture on the windscreen?
    Looks really good from the inside especially when the sun hits from the rear and it actually gives shadows on the inside of the windscreen. Now if it was slightly reflective too so that we would see the inside reflected somewhat would be a nice touch

    Having in depth customization is a neat detail, but that effort could be put into much, much better things.

    I wouldn't have noticed the slight dirt film had no one mentioned it.
    The slight reflectivity of the glass panes would be great, although I guess it would be putting some strain on the CPU/GPU.

    Is there a battery system in the game that I don't know about?
    A lot of cars have a battery decal on their cluster but i've never seen it turn on and can't seem to make it turn on. It has glowmaps and a function set too. And I know it's not an old thing that they were making but scrapped or anything because even the recently remastered Pessima has one so maybe they're working on working batteries?

    more on that:
    i did also notice a no seatbelt and door open sign in the middle of the bastions gauges and those 2 also wouldn't light up too.
    perhaps its something to do with a later game function like career mode or something?

    The battery symbol actually turns on in the EVs when you've got low battery

    New teaser here: https://twitter.com/beamng/status/1512483375507902467?s=20&t=6Jhi_AgcyRCbHO7xo7vLlQ
    What could it be? Looks like a plastic door handle as you can see a keyhole under the beamng logo. Chrome mean it's very unlikely to be the new Civetta model. We know that the covet is getting a re-work but the door handles look different (could maybe be the boot?)


    Edit: looks like it might be something unrelated to the update after reading the tweet again, more of a community contest. Seems unrelated to the speculation sorry for off-topic
