I’m not really sure if reintroducing self after a while is allowed or not, when there are a lot of new members here coming straight from various background (most notably from Automation x BeamNG collaboration, which I dub it as the greatest car-related gaming crossover in gaming history), but I’ll reintroduce myself either way.
Name’s Reiko (not a real name and I prefer to be called my internet name (either TheAgathaNakai or Reiko, or Reiko’s Carbon Fibre Emolga in BeamNG forum and Car Throttle, your pick)). I’m Indonesian, and currently still on studying visual communication design in the college, soon will celebrate 23rd birthday by the time I’m writing this (May 9th).
I have interests in a lot of things, music, gaming (of course), design, anime, movies and also certain kind of sports (such as wrestling, and a little bit of football). The funny thing is, I’m not really keen on the actual motorsports so much. If you ask me, I prefer an authorized street racing, in a closed course, like what you see in Palm City when it’s on day. I do encourage to drive safely on the street though.
Let’s narrow my interests down a little bit to the specific, when it comes to cars, I have a lot of interests in them, regardless of the body style and purpose of it. My orientation is 60% form and 40% function. And if you ask me what are my favorite cars, I’ll mention few that are worthy to mention listed here below:
- 1968 Ford Mustang GT Fastback
- 1998 Subaru Impreza 22b
- 1989 Porsche 964
- 1983 Toyota Corolla GT-S (AE86)
- 1995 McLaren F1
- 2010 Ford Shelby GT500 “Supersnake”
- 2006 Subaru Impreza WRX STi “Hawkeye”
- 2011 Porsche 918 Spyder
- 2013 Toyota GT86
- 2010 BMW M5 E60
- 1999 Ferrari 550 Maranello
- 2003 Nissan Sentra SE-R
- 2018 Suzuki Jimny
- 2017 Suzuki Ignis
- 2010 Toyota FJ Cruiser
- 2004 Ford F-150 FX4
- and there’s much more that I haven’t mentioned yet, but you should at least get the idea what kind of cars I’m most likely into.
It is unfortunate that I didn’t have an actual car that I can sit in and floor it, for now at least. But I’m all okay, considering the traffic here in my country, bikes are most likely to be preferred to go anywhere, and I still get the similar enjoyment with cars, or maybe better.
So, how did I become an Automationeer 5 years ago? It all started from an internet friend of mine posted a screenshot of his creation. In that time, I didn’t know what the game was, but it definitely caught my attention. And after a little bit of research, I decided to download the game, and the rest is history.
After 5 years of playing this game, I can conclude that I’m not the best, but not the worst Automationeer here, and I’m improving overtime in every aspect. Most importantly, I play this game for fun, to the point where I started to think it’s a drug (in a very good way), and also a way to express my true positive feelings or vibes I cannot explain through words (it can be love, or just a simple happiness). I joined this discourse forum for almost 3 years, and I’m here looking for friends and showcase my creations, with the only intention of having fun and forgetting the reality for a while (in my own way, like sharing my creations and let everyone enjoy it by driving them on BeamNG Drive, or tune it the way they want it).
I also have other social media such as Instagram, I also post my car creations there too.
Have a nice day, and Forza Novia!
