    what i'm wondering is if theyre finally working to improve the performance this update, the game has been slowly getting worse and worse in terms of it since about 0.22 (on AMD at least) and it'd be nice if the devs found a way to make it run better
    from what i can tell shadows are the main fps killer? the improved ones being shown now make me a little anxious as a result but who knows

    So do you think the Scintilla will be free in the next update, or will it be released as an inexpensive DLC? It's been almost 10 years and most of us have only paid the devs around $20 over that whole time - unfortunately, that isn't going to pay the bills forever...

    They would be transparent with something like that.

    Honestly, I think the new Civetta holds the record for “largest disc brakes ever on a vanilla car”.

    Also that front end really reminds me of the Maserati MC20 for some reason.

    Just to play devil's advocate: There's been a distinct lack of teasers this update cycle, so it wouldn't shock me if they were trying as hard as possible to avoid rubbing premium content in people's faces or getting people too hyped for something that will end up being sold separately. Paid DLC is planned, although it is unclear whether it will happen before or after 1.0 or what kinds of content it will include. They have as much right to keep the lights on as you do to enjoy the game, this isn't EA we're talking about

    do you really think they would do that? it may have been 10 years but the game is still in alpha and has no content other than time trials or scenarios

    i am sure that many potential buyers just avoid this game because it has no campaign or story

    why not focus on improving that before risking pissing off a large chunk of the playerbase by adding dlc when the game is so unfinished?

    With how long development is taking vs. how much they charge, the business model just isn't sustainable as it is. Premium content may frustrate some players but would appeal to the game's more dedicated core audience (in the case of the Scintilla, especially sim racers), ensuring at least some cash flow so they can continue to develop BeamNG

    Potentials buyer of this game are mostly focused on soft-body physics and the awesome content, campaign mode and more scenarios are the last... I have played over 796 hours without campaign mod or history. if u want story mode, go to play Forza and let real mens play this masterpiece of real time physics. stfu ;)

    Sorry to be this Guy. BUT i did some REAL crap edits. And all i can say. is the new Scintilla ( love the name to )
    Looks like a render ( its not ) SO i think this new update looks hot.

    as for the car itself. I don't know what engines it has. I think V8 is a given. Possibly a V10.
    I dont know if a V12 will fit?

    Also i will hope for a small V6 but With twin turbo. A supercharger. And possibly Hybrid.

    But the Hype train has set of. I think the update is now around the corner even if we still need to wait a few more weeks :D

    I still wonder when they plan to go formally enter the beta phase, all modesty aside the game is way more than an alpha has any right to be.

    Also, when do you think they're gonna drop the early access on Steam? As soon as they deliver the full campaign? With the release of 1.0?

    Edit: TIL that apparently a beta usually starts when a piece of software is feature complete so eh

    Something everybody has seemed to over look. That’s very much a fixed wing in the preview of the Scintilla, and we know there is an active wing planned. That presumably means we are looking at a high end track day trim like a GT3RS Porsche,McLaren LT, or Lamborghini SVJ. In the recent past they have shown the fastest trim of the car aswell, which in this case would be a little disappointing to not get a race car variant similar to GT3 or even a “cup” style car like Super Trofeo and Ferrari Challenge.

    Disagree. Does not look like the highest end trim.

    I was thinking last night that devs created art. Scintilla looks exactly as Bolide in version with wing and non pop-up headlights. In my mind styling of new Civetta is like Bolide but set in present time. This is just art how they set styling. I don't have to look on new Scintilla to see her shapes by looking on Bolide (i don't talking about Bolide shapes but overall look of car). Idk about back of car because i think there will be huge difference between Bolide and Scintilla but front is just majestic.

    I just wish that yxes ssa (read backward) from Bolide will also be yxes (read backward) on Scintilla :rolleyes:
