    Personally, i prefer get some merch than DLC... at least, with merch, even when you go to work or to school you do some sort of publicity for the game. And if people want to contribute to the game devellopment and that they don't have enough money for the game itself they can participated too. And the grandma/grandpa that want to make a gift to their greatchildren they can buy a t-shirt or a mug wich is more simple for them to find on the Web than à DLC or even a steam giftcard. After, it's just my opinion and you are free to think by your way :)

    Aren't the clients of BeamNG.tech (like Audi etc.) the ones bringing the principal income ?
    People occasionally buying the game sure couldn't pay the whole team for that long, more so now with the team being bigger than ever.

    And I really don't see any content being paid before at least 1.0 release

    I agree. The fixed rear wing (plus the shark fins in front of the rear arches we see here) is usually put on the more hardcore version of a Supercar because the motorized wing weighs more due to the mechanism and the speed sensors needed to move it up and down.
    Among other things, I'm also really curious to see the motorized rear wing!

    Rather than paywalling core game elements like new cars and maps, they should explore other options of raising additional capital. I would be more than happy in spending tens of my dollars on official BeamNG merch or on a "Supporter Edition" on Steam that gives buyers things like hi-res design sketches for released cars and maps and lossless files of the synthwave tracks that play in the Lightrunner mode. Maybe even premade STL files of all the vehicles so people can 3D print their own models.

    About the 3D printing, they can also offer the colours the cars are available in, so anyone can choose the colour they like the most to "paint" the car! ;)

    They're secretly part of the dev team and testing the water for controversial ideas

    Dont ignore that BeamNG already sold more that 1 million copies of BeamNG.Drive and I would'nt be surprised if they were really close to the 2 million milestone. Let's say they sold 1.5 million copies that gives them 15€ (due to steam taxes for example), it makes already 22,5M€ of raw income since 2012, obvisouly it must be over estimated and there's a shit ton of taxes that takes a huge part of the money but still, BeamNG.Drive isn't ridiculous when talking about money.

    Is there a shadow on the glass?


    The glass shader sytem will be definitively way better for sure!
    (no more visible glass&taillights though sand dust and fog, I hope ^^)

    Our main focus has been BeamNG.Drive & continues to be as such, .Tech is just a few additions ontop of the game, so without BeamNG.Drive. Tech cannot happen either.

    I think it does, a while back over 20 of the devs where online, so im expecting something to happen really soon. My guess is that it'll be released next week as a part of the yearly summer update. it could also mean the devs want to be more engaged with their community, they want to know what the public want, or just answer questions and have a chuckle

    Talking about shadows: will we ever be able to go above 2048x2048 shadow map resolution?

    i wouldnt be surprised if the update releases some time before or even when the steam summer sale starts so they can boost the amount of new players by dropping both the new car and the price
