BeamNG Pre-Race Update in 4 Days
Tags: Beamng Drive, Pre Race Update
I'm personally very excited to see the results of the pre-race update coming out in 4 days from today.
For those familiar to the BeamNG Drive game you already know the update contains major updates to the games interface and core physics. I expect major changes to the gameplay and feel across all aspects of the game.
This brings the game one step closer to exiting the alpha build stages and entering into a more mature build.
The amount of momentum already rolling for this games community support is outstanding to say the least. I see this game having very big potential in many areas.
It must be noted the similarities between BeamNG and Street Legal Racing Redline.
The true soft body physics bringing dynamic vehicle damage and collision far further than imagined possible with SLR.
A working parts system for vehicles suggests possibility of major gameplay mods that can't help but consider an SLR garage scene with click to install / uninstall that most of you love.
True aerodynamic physics making body aero on a vehicle so effective that even planes will fly in the game with no pre defined tweaks. Expect true and accurate aero performance when done properly within end-mods.
The ease of making new terrains and maps really balances the complexity of dealing with developing add-on car mods.
While some will complain about the difficulty (including myself at times) of developing add-on cars for this game it is important to understand the level of complexity and functionality possible. The result is well worth the award. With continuing support and development of modding tools to help streamline and simplify the modding process I expect that making these mods will be easier than it is to currently develop and release an add-on car for SLR.
You should recognize that in the beginning days of SL1 and SLR release... modding was very difficult and the quality of such mods we nowhere near todays standards. It was a steep and difficult learning curve for the community, the progress within the given time that beamNG has been out so far makes me convinced that this will be an easier road compared to street legal modding in the early days.
Don't be afraid to get into a new game early, you might be glad you did.
