Automation Cars Now Driveable on BeamNG!


#1

Best news I have seen in ages! Came out of nowhere…

I’m interested in how this might impact on our challenges.

I don’t have Beam (yet), but if you are familiar with it I have some questions:

  1. are there AI cars in it? So could we hypothetically load up all the submissions to a competition and the manager can film the race with AI drivers and upload to YouTube?

  2. if not, maybe we could at least do the qualifying ourselves and save a screenshot or some other way of validating the time?

This is such wonderful news!

I really love that decision.


#3

holy shit I am hype


#4

Heck yeah, cant wait.

No.1: There is an AI mode in beam. But you have to be in freeroam.
No.2: In time trial mode, at the end of racing, it will show your lap times and total time (if you choose 2 laps or more)

So hype! So suspense!


#7

I literally dreamt of this.
I literally made joke comments about it happening.

Now it’s actually there.

Hey Camshaft Software, I don’t even care about Inline 5s not being available in the first public release of the UE4 light campaign, this is everything I wished for.

Thanks Santa.

Now to make a car more bland than the 96’ Pessima lol

If hype was usable as a fuel source, and all the hype from the Automation and BeamNG communities was added up, it would be able to power the entire earth for a thousand years.


#10

To be honest, out of the ~10 people I’ve tried to convince to buy automation, only 2 have done so. 6 or 7 were “I would if I could drive the cars”

Fap level over 9000


#12

This is absolutely incredible! I finally will be able to find out how legendarily malaise my mid to late '70s cars are :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

That being said, this seems more like something for #off-topic or #general-chat ? Especially given how sidetracked (no pun intended) the conversation already is.


#13

Time to start building Farox from the beginning. so hYPED FOR THIS


#14

Is there any sort of online play with Beam? I looked on steam and it didn’t seem like there was but it would be really cool to do racing series using our own cars that we drive.


#15

Time to see what those calvinator people have really built


#16

No please don’t try, you would break the game completely!


#17

Damn, now I’m gonna have to get BeamNG Drive so I can drive some Storm and Sinistra cars and see how legendarily bad the L-FWD platform would be with some of the cars I’ve made.


#18

Put a 1000hp engine to the 3-wheels moped car :joy:


#19

Time to hook up my wheel and pedals and properly test-drive my own cars. Well done, devs, in arranging this.

It’s a Calvinator and a crash simulator. They were made for each other
