Im pretty sure the devs are okay with modification of the exported .car files, but if not… umm… sorry.
To start out with, I was in the Beamng mods folder and chose the car I wanted to mess with. (exported Automation car) Next, I went into the “camso_engine” JBEAM file and tweaked a few values, gear ratio, turbo spooling efficiency, and torque curve. After this, I copied the complete notepad flie incase anything went south, closed and saved the document. (note, it says that the file already exists and if you want to replace it. I said yes)
When I opened beam however, the changes weren’t applied, so I opened the file and what would you know, the changes weren’t actually saved.
My question here is, predictably, how do I get them to save?
TL;DR: I messed with a JBEAM file for a .car file exported to Beam, how can I get the changes to save?
