    I don't think we should get a pre-war car, personally, I think we should stick to cars from 1946-present, because that was after the World War II, like how automation has it.

    I don't see what you're saying about pre-war cars though, other than the completely arbitrary comparison to Automation not having any. A lot of games don't have a lot of things.

    I really hope the new car is a classic car. Modern cars just don't have same personality...

    Besides, why go modern when you can go classic?

    Now, I am aware that the Beamng staff probably won't add this anytime soon and we will get a new car instead, but I do think a 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, and possibly 2010s single and double wide home/trailer that you can color with the Beamng vehicle color and have options for different paint styles, plus it being able to be damaged, breakable, and destroyed would be a nice add- on to the game in my opinion.

    By the way, I am aware of Narwhal's mobile home mod and it is good, but it doesn't have any windows, axles, tow attachment, or foundation. It is fun to make Beamng.Drive stories about, but I do think the Beamng staff could make a better mobile home/trailer with windows, axles, foundation, and tow attachment. By the way, I heard that Narwhal died, so R.I.P Narwhal. He made a good mobile home/trailer mod.

    Trailers on the whole have been neglected more than I would like. We haven't got a new trailer for the T-Series since we first got them (unless you count the car transporter, which is just a new door on an old trailer). No new trucks that can haul a fifth wheel trailer (even though the D/H-Series could get a fifth wheel attachment for smaller trailers), no doubles for the T-Series, no new trailers since the utility trailer. For those of you about to say "this isn't ETS/ATS/Spintires, remember that we don't even have a trailer that can comfortably fit a race car unless you jump straight to the '53 box trailer, which isn't even what a normal person would use to transport a car IRL. And I know there's a small community here that likes heavy equipment, a lowboy would serve them well.

    I would love to see a mobile office to drive through, I'm surprised we never got a big one after the caravan.

    As for needing a modern car. Not counting the eSBR since that's just a new powertrain in an existing car, both of the cars we got recently are 1960's. The only post 2000 cars are the Sunburst, SBR, 800-Series, and K-Series. 4 cars out of 25. You know when the last one was released? 0.5.6. Which was June 4, 2016. This update is going to be pushing 2020. It's well past time for a modern car.

    Yeah more trailers are definitely needed (updates to the existing trailers are also needed, because collision and overall detail on them as of now are kinda bad). A mobile home/office or large caravan would be nice too.
    As for a modern car being added to the game, as much as I'd rather drive a classic car than a modern one, we really need more modern vehicles in the game. The great thing about beam is even if you don't like a car that's added to the game, there's always the option of smashing it to bits.

    I was speaking more of overall performance, not the specific handling characteristics of the Corvette. Try to see how much I can make it handle like a sports car.

    I know, right? I feel like we do need a trailer and prop remastering/expanding update sometime in the future. A mobile office would not be a bad idea, but I do think a 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s single wide and double wide mobile home/trailer with a foundation and axles with a tow attachment, plus a 2000s to 2010s double wide manufactured home with a foundation or low home hauler trailer with 3 or 4 axles would be a great idea as well, especially if you can color it and be able to damage and destroy it by dragging it off a cliff with the node grabber. Sadly, I don't think the Beamng staff is going to add those types of things anytime soon though.

    Oh by the way, If the devs decide to add another heavy duty truck. I think they should add a 1950s or 1960s cabover truck that has options such as a fifth wheel attachment, dumb bed, mixer body, tanker that can haul gas, water, milk, and diesel, and log bed with steel posts to keep the logs from falling off, but they may not do that sadly.

    A modern car might be nice to. I do like driving the Gavril Bluebuck and Autobello Piccolina, but I think we should have a modern car to the game to satisfy people who like modern cars. It also balance the percentage between old cars and modern cars.

    Maps like Industrial Site, Jungle Rock Island, and Small Island USA need renovations and expansions badly. Those maps look very old compared to maps like West Coast USA or Italy. Those maps look old even compared to Utah right now before this upcoming update. These maps aren't bad, but they really need expansions and renovations soon.

    The dry van, tanker, and flatbed trailers need some updates eventually as well. I'm not even sure if the flatbed (where the loads go) has any collision at all and the tanker and dry van trailers have mediocre to average damage visuals at best. I also feel like we should have more cargo options for the flatbed and dry van trailers. I also think we need an aluminum enclosed car trailer that you can haul with the D-series pickup truck.

    Expansion and texture improvements to the road sign props in Beamng would be pretty cool as well. I think we should have left and right curve sign props in Beamng along with the speed limit and yield/stop sign props we currently have in Beamng.

    Also, since the dev team are going to remaster the rocks in Utah it seems like. They should also remaster the rock props as well to make them up to date.

    Alright now, here's a bit of update speculation that is not conformed for sure at all. This is just some feelings I got about the release date of the update.

    By the way, it sounds there could end up being a lot of stuff for this Utah update. I don't know much about the update yet, but it does sound like from I heard that there could be a lot of stuff in update. Honestly, for all I know. The update may not even come out until January or even February because the staff may have a lot of stuff to work on, but I don't know for sure yet though.

    Um, excuse me. What does car variety A and B mean? Does it mean Car A is the modern car and Car B is the classic car, or does it mean Car A is the classic car and Car B is the modern car? I don't want to be rude, but I'm curious about what car variety A and B are?

    vmlinuz's comment was a joke; A and B are anything- it's meant to comment on the war between "hurr durr model a better than tesla modern car bad old car good hurr durr"...

    Let's just be happy we are getting a new car, no matter what it is. As long as it isn't the same as something already in-game.

    As usual, I think that a wide variety of trailers should be prioritized. They aren't a big part of the game, generally, so making the same type of trailer for several different years is not a very efficient use of resources, especially considering how little trailer designs change over years.

    There are two types of trailer I think the game needs right now. Hopefully there's a chance they could be added when the dev team can make time to fix the problems on existing trailers.

    One is a proper car transporter. Not just a flatbed, one of those with two levels, with the top one on hydraulics to lower it. I'm surprised there isn't one in the base game already, though I suppose the devs are waiting until we get a proper way to secure vehicles without the node grabber.

    The second is a low-bed trailer. Not as essential, as the game currently lacks construction vehicles to make use of it, but still quite important.

    Also, the generic Beam.NG cargo containers should be j-beamed props. In that case, some sort of intermodal trailer should be added.

    Concerning the current lack of transport trailer: When the fifth wheel trailers were introduced the game wasn't well optimized, some people still thought the T-Series would never get any form of trailers at that point. Most people immediately shot down that suggestion because only a top end gaming system was powerful enough to load enough cars to use a loaded transport trailer and the T-Series. Now that the game is optimized to a point where 8 cars loaded in is easy on a modern gaming computer hopefully we will see a some. An enclosed trailer would be useful, a multilevel carrier would be cool, and some smaller ones for a fifth-wheel D/H-series and a trailer hitch would just be nice for variety. Plus the current ones can only hold a Miramar or smaller.

    @Blijo, I've heard nothing about a 1910s vehicle coming to the next update at all, but you may actually be correct about the teasers being changes for the ETK 800 series though I'm not sure whether or not that's the case. I've heard nothing from the devs yet about a modern car coming to game. There are electric drive trains and other stuff like that and even then, it may just be changes for the ETK 800, but as far as pictures for this "new car" go, I haven't seen jack frigging crap. I don't want to be ignorant and say that a new modern car is not coming to game, but we need more proof and evidence of a modern car coming to the game.

    @Srockzz can say 'the devs said there is a new car" all he wants, but I want to hear "new modern car coming" from the devs themselves. By the way, I probably would actually drive a 1910s car more in Beamng then I would a modern car, however I don't think a 1910s vehicle to coming to the game. I heard nothing about it from the devs, plus people on here really seem like they don't want pre war cars and just like with this "new modern car", there are no pictures to back up the statement that a 1910s car is coming to this update. That said, I do understand it's a hot take though, so that probably means that it's an unpopular opinion.

    Okay, I understand now that it's a joke and it's meant to comment on the "old vs modern car" stuff. There may be a modern or old car coming to the game, but I feel like that the forum users should speculate about this remastered Utah map a bit more. I got a feeling that the main part of this update is going to be the revamped Utah map, besides, wasn't the main part of the 0.17 update the East Coast USA, Hirochi Racway, and Derby Arena updates.

    I do think that more users should be speculating about the Utah map, because unlike the car, there are actually pictures of it. There may be modern car coming to the game, but this modern car/old car stuff could unfortunately cause a massive thread war that may or may not get the devs angry. I'm honestly starting to get tired of hearing this modern car stuff. Yes, I'm completely aware that a modern car may come to the game and this game should have a variety of cars, but I do think that the upcoming Utah map should get more discussion.

    1. It won't be as likely cause a thread war that get the devs angry like this old car and modern car stuff will and 2. There are actually pictures of the new Utah map, so that's more material to discuss on this thread.

    Look, I'm not saying a modern car won't come to this game. It very well might and honestly, I don't care what car comes to the game as long as it's not hideous to look at and it runs well and the users on here can totally talk this new car and old car stuff all they want. They totally have the right to do that, even if I'm starting to get tired of this modern car stuff.

    You actually make a good point there. As long as the car isn't so ugly that it makes your eyes bleed and runs well. I think we should totally be happy about getting a new car.

    Sorry the long post. I just felt like I needed to reply to a few people's comments on here. If you made it to here. You are a legend. I'm gonna go watch some Bordertown now.
