    Hello, I just wanted to co-sign something that mentioned before by tuningfreak1 ...
    A mid-90s BMW-like sedan, like the BMW E34 would be awesome! Especially if it has white-grey double stripes like the "San Francisco Rush" game's version of E34, I think it would simply ROCK!!!

    Also other 90's stylish euro-sedans would be great too, like the Alfa Romeo 33, I just LOVE the "unibrow" styled backlights of this car, sadly this car didn't ever made it into any videogame...
    Here is a pic of A 33, if you don't know what I'm talking about:

    and a pic of SF Rush's E34-like sedan:

    Feel free to suggest other kinds of vehicles - they don't just have to be street cars. Planes, trains, industrial machines, tractors, baggage carriers, boats... whatever you can think of. Variety is better than redundancy - when more of the bases are covered I'll think about doing more sedans.

    That's a valid point.

    I'll start off with this then. I have always seen these trains through my childhood. Those times when daddy had to go to work on the train.. because his car had a sticky clutch pedal again.. lol

    Alright... I'll try to write up some weird ideas that pop into my head.perhaps it's a little early into development for some of these ideas(I have no clue how many 'less basic .truck file sections' are already working of course).
    I'm trying not to sound demanding, just trying to brainstorm of course. I wouldn't actually be suprised(or disappointed) if none of these would make it into the game:

    -An amphibious vehicle, wheither it would be a huge floating APC-type of vehicle, a smaller Schwimmwagen, a floating Land Rover, or an Amphicar. Any kind would be neat to explore the physics of.

    -A double layer vehicle transporter that can be used as a mobile ramp(also known as ramp truck :p). We had some wreckers in RoR but those just had a single floor, and we had some double floor trailers, but those usually weren't stable. Perhaps a truck similar to the Packer in GTA SA (but without a nose, more Peterbuilt ish?).

    -A classic open wheeled racecar, perhaps? You know, one of those typical rear-drive death-traps with way too much power.

    -Classic-ish rally car, something along the lines of a Lancia Stratos, Ford RS200, Lancia Stradale, or Audi Quattro(or even Lancia Delta Integrale/Mk2 Escort, if you want it to be more road-worthy)...

    -Rear engined sportscar(rather than mid-engined, like the Civetta Bolide)... Cars with the engine behind the rear axle like Porsches are known to handle a bit tricky compared to normal sportscars, so that would be interesting, wheither it would be rear or four wheel drive. (Or, also rear-engined, what about an aircooled Beetle, or Beetle-based buggy?

    -A small off-road car would be great to bash around in. Perhaps it could be similar to a mk2 Golf Country/Syncro, or like the (first gen) Fiat Panda 4x4(those are pretty rare, by the way). Or perhaps something like a Suzuki Samurai/Vitara...?

    (imported from here)

    -A tracked vehicle. By tracked vehicle I don't necessarily mean a tank or half-track, but still something with tracks that's fast(ie 70-80km/h) and pretty heavy?
    I think it would be interesting to see if/how BeamNG will handle a track system properly, so that it the tracks don't bounce from side to side when turning around.

    I'd have to admit though, I don't think it would be a smart idea(from a developer perspective) to put a heavy tracked vehicle in the game if you can still easily get stuck in other vehicles submeshes, or if the car resetting thing that happened in RoR happens in BeamNG too... We all know some people would start whining and crying if there's a tank or so in the game and you can't crush cars with it :p

    -Something a bit earthmoving/aggricultural. Perhaps a backhoe, a regular tractor with a scoop, or an excavator(tracked or with wheels, the bucket would be fun to crush ca-... I mean, to mess around with). (Let's kick Farm Simulator 2012's arse :D)

    -What about the sort of crane-type things like they use in car junkyards? With some sort of claw system that you can use to pick up cars with, by just crunching the roof... Perhaps if BeamNG still has that issue where cars get reset that I mentioned before, you could build the 'claw' so that it cannot ever fully close, so the car never gets destroyed enough to get glitchy?



    -A forklift that doesn't fall over when trying to lift a car... (If possible, it would be nice if you could actually stick the forks through the side windows of a car, and lift the car by the roof, like they do in scrapyards)


    -(Maybe less of a vehicle, but still something that moves)... Since you're building a parts system, it might be fun to incorporate that into a physical garage where you can control for example a vehicle lift/bridge that you can raise and lower. You don't see those fully working in games very often, even games that are about car tuning/building don't have them.

    -An MPV ? la Renault Espace might be fun, made with plastic bodypanels, a trillion billion (nonfunctioning?) airbags and hyper-galactic space materials for super safety :p

    -the Marauder, the most unstoppable vehicle in the world... Or well, a vehicle like that :p

    You really are full of good ideas and your name has cropped up here and there I've noticed. But here we have yet another good idea, would love one of those big claw things to pick up stuff and chuck it into a crusher

    YES! Game crashing and lagging here I come. Good for sawing cars in half though.

    Hmm...it's a bit on the small side. ;) That would be so fun to use. I can already imagine an interesting game mode. A team of cars try to hit the base of the machine while the operator tries to murder the cars. It would have to be an agile machine though. After someone destroys it, the thing could collapse with epic explosions and fire. Then, the machine would be respawned and the person that destroyed it would become the operator.

    - - - Updated - - -

    ...and to stay on topic, here's a suggestion. How about a Tuk-tuk or Autorickshaw? That would be fun, but it would probably be a bit similar to the Ibishu Pigeon. Still, it would be cool!

    (imported from here)This is the only small sized picture of a rickshaw I could find at the time. Just imagine the yellow rickshaw as being black and light yellow, like the ones in India.

    I have a suggestion to GABESTER.

    Hey Gabester I have RoR with all cars you have created but you can convert for this game all of your creations for RoR.

    thanks for the attention.:cool:

    Hopefully all of these suggestions are for Gabester. ;) Anyway, Gabe said he would practically have to remake the cars again because BeamNG is so different than RoR. I don't think he is going to convert them because of how difficult it would be. I bet that someone outside of BeamNG will try to do it after the game is released. I'm not sure how successful they will be, but it would be a great thing to work at.

    With an orbital velocity of 17,450mph it would be a pretty quick way to go to Tesco for your weekly shopping.
