Automation + BeamNG: First Impression Car Reviews


Trying to get back into contributing stuff after I had a “Retreat From Life” episode for a minute or two. I’ll have to see what I’ve got to tweak and send in for review.


Saturday, 8 June 2019, 21:00 US Eastern Daylight Time - Kasai Yama YMMX Turbo

In regards to schedule:

I see a few more people have chimed in on the survey and those results will be added. But basics so far are that most people are in UTC -4 or UTC +2 / + 3 which makes a lot of sense. That correlates to east coasts of US and Canada and central Europe :slightly_smiling_face: . And between 2/3 and 3/4 of you are on relatively typical schedules.

As we can see from this graphic I put together, scheduling for between 0:00 and 2:00 UTC 0 (so between 20:00 and 22:00 for me) puts most people viewing during golden hours and a few of you perhaps a little past bedtime. Sorry to the Australia New Zealand folk though. Ironically, at the time this was compiled your were somewhat of a minority. Optimal time for everyone else means your work / school day is just getting started :cry: .

Will update as appropriate but this was what was driving my decision for this week.

Working on the edited version of last week’s stream. Hope to have that up by Friday, this week.

Stream edit is live

Also because streamed, format is a bit different. We’ll see how this plays out.


One quick little pointer: I believe all (or almost all) automation engines get race intakes visually when exported to Beam. Just something I’ve noticed in your vids.


Retro Age always making strange yet awesome cars.


You are correct sir! Good catch. My apologies to anyone who may have suffered that criticism, in particular @loflyh

Relevant frame grabs:

As we can see a performance intake actually gets rendered as a race intake in beam.


Pretty sure every intake gets rendered as a race intake in Beam (and possibly in the engine bays in Automation as well) but IDK


They’re rendered as their correct model in Automation, I’ve had quite a few poke out of engine bays before


As a way of saying thank you for the review and more importantly …to commend you for persisting with your project(s) despite or because of the hardships in your personal life.

I present to you Sir kmBlaine, the 2018 Vasia - kmBlaine Edition.
This vehicle is redone according to some of your suggestion and some of your (hardly disguised …hahaha!) disapprovals.

You Sir kmBlaine shall be the only person, other then myself to have this vehicle, please enjoy.

Enjoy the Experience
