Close encounter with reality
Well, I had this for myself for quite a bit of time (heavily expanded recently though, I had like 1/4 of this) - a spreadsheet with loads of real car data, to make realistic design decisions easier. Right now it’s mainly engine data, as I struggled with my engine lineup. Then I thought that
it’s a f…ton of work for one person to complete it and keep it up to date
it might help others - newcomers in seeing what real cars look like in the numbers and veterans in knowing all the statistics, avera…
What makes for a realistic car in [some year]?
A question many of us end up asking, even the most experienced among us. But whereas the most experienced among us might be caught up in some minor details, the inexperienced or uninformed among us might not even get the broad strokes correct.
And that’s fine!
We all have to start somewhere and at some point even all of us “experienced folk” were once dodos too who though that DOHC 4-valve might be appropriate in the 1940s. Yeah in a 1940s fighte…
How to Automation
Today i’ve made this:
Automation Unlock Table (on Google Sheets)
It’s a table with the unlock date of everything in car and engine builder (with 0 tech, like the sandbox mode)
Hope you can find it useful; if there’re errors send me a PM.

I have collected here what has been said so far on this thread, divided by topics.
I’m very happy for it, it’s coming very good. It’s a series of useful tips for everyone.
If anyone want to share some other tips, just post it here, if it’s not redundant or b*****t i will add it.
Topics (chapter) are not final, they are only what came up till now.
I’m hosting a challenge right now (

Tips and Tricks to Automation Car Design
Hey everyone! So, seeing as that this forum is about to get a whole lot bigger, I wanted to help out a little bit with some suggestions for designing cars. First, I’ll start with some general tips, and then I’ll make a few posts going deeper into each decade and car style.
A quick but very, very sincere thanks to
@ramthecowy for helping out with all of my comments (let’s give him a round of applause); I really couldn’t have done this without…
With the new BeamNG Exporter coming along soon, there’s more than likely going to be a lot of new players joining. So, I’m putting together a guide for engine design. This will be put in parts whenever I feel like it, and will cover each tab of the engine designer one by one.
I will update this post with a link to each section of the guide, which I will add below as a reply to this. Feel free to ask any questions you may have, and I’ll be happy to answer them.
A few things to note:
Automation now has an official Discord Server.
See Below for more details.
Long reading as to why this existsI think we came to a consensus that on a general level of roleplay when it comes to “realistic” companies that resemble those that exist(ed) we would do just that - make them behave like real companies, except in a fictional alternate timeline of the world where our IRL marques don’t exist. So who do we compare to and advertise other than competitors of the Automationverse? This became even more of an obvious issue with the ongoing ASCAR competition - if players…
The idea is to list all the people that are (at best natively) speaking languages other than English AND are willing to help with translations for names, slogans etc. For example let’s say that you are making an Italian company, and because of that you want to use some Italian names for your cars, engines, technologies or whatever. Then instead of getting some random s…t from Google Translate, you could just open this thread and see who speaks Italian and could translate whatever you need and/or…
I thought maybe this thread can be interesting in future… maybe someone wants to give-away a Steam-Key or something weirder/similar. Does not matter.
I had the intention of giving away something that just collects dust here at home and could not be arsed to sell it to some bloke, and then i figured that just creating a thread for just this is a bit schtupid, so i made this. This is just the opening post, since i want to seperate the “Likes” of this post from the actual Giveaway.
This is a thread for asking questions that you might think are dumb but someone else might just have an answer for it, and google isn’t your friend. Go on ask!
I’ll start with my wonder.
Why are some luxury cars like the 7-series that cost who knows how many tens of thousands of euros when new in 2005 now cost like 5000€, is it just because absolutely no-one wants one?
