Announcing Automation & collaboration!

If you are into cars and car games, you’ve probably heard about Automation, the game where you can design and build your own cars in exquisite detail, from the body and chassis right down to the suspension and engine tuning. Automation enjoys a great community of players coming up with incredible cars to share with each other, all while debating the finer points of design.

We are now working with the developers of Automation to get you in the driver seat of your Automation designs. Export your car from Automation to with a single click and take it for a spin! The styling, sound, and mechanical details will all be making the conversion to our game. Not only that, we will be hosting your creations in our mod repository so you can share them with all players of


The cars are not the only focus of our collaboration. We’ve also joined forces to recreate the Automation test track. Set in a mountainous area of New Zealand’s South Island, the map has a challenging roller-coaster of a track layout and many unique features to explore. Do your best to recreate the simulated laps of Automation, or explore the strengths and weaknesses of your designs on different surfaces and obstacles.


In light of this development, our two games will be offered on Steam for a cross promotional sale! If you have either Automation or, this will be the chance to pick up the other for a discount, and join in on the fun.

Keep an eye out for a joint release from and Automation on July 13th. The cross promotional sale starts then!

    Hopefully you can take this concept and grow it, the lack of proper deformation and interiors is killing me, it could be awesome but at the moment it looks to be lacking.

      I completely agree and hope they don’t take advantage of the success of this and scoot that under the rug but they probably will.

  10. Fridtjof G. says:

    I’m so excited! Will it also be possible to export only one engine?

  11. MrRare says:

    This is awesome, but I couldn’t really fully understand if jbeam’s are also generated for some deforming action?

    I mean it’s cool, but if that isn’t in place, there’s not much of a point.

  13. Fen owo says:

    i feel like we should put these on a seperate forums section rather then filling the repository with mods that are so simple.


  14. Viridian says:

    So this basically makes it so almost anyone can build a car… Shame automation doesn’t include a plane builder XD

  15. Viridian says:

    Now all we need is a *proper* not actually painful to use map editor. 😉

  16. OrbitingAncient says:

  17. BeamCarHomeTrade says:

  19. Brownzy03 says:

    I’m so excited! Waiting for July 13th is going to feel like an eternity!

  20. workclock1 says:

    The BeamNG Team is one of those rare game developers that actually listens to their community, and what they want.

  21. Gonzo says:

    My dream come true!!!!

  22. DankMemeBunny says:

    This update is kind of useless for people who dont own Automotion. That sucks :/

  23. scooter800m says:

    My two favorite games FINALLY TOGETHER! i wonder how good my trucks and super sedans really are… who cares WOOHOO!

  24. Matt says:

    Had to check to see if it was April 1st. Awesome to see this kind of partnership, keep up the excellent work guys!

  25. Arvid says:

    Cool! Automation hasn’t got enough love yet, hopefully this will increase sales if both games which means faster development and more cars for the money and so on! Keep it up guys!

  26. Alex says:

    BeamNG.Drive devs are mods for the automation game like popup headlights able to work in the converter because that would be cool

  27. Faawks says:

    Please, for the love of god, it’s this new found power to develop a new street rod game, it’s all there waiting for you, along with my wallet.

  28. Sasa Ivkovic says:

    Do we now have to buy the other game?

    if we do it sucks!!!

    • Bmwcrazy456 says:

      I could be wrong, but I think that if you have BeamNG you will get the other game, and if not there will be a sale!

  29. Jonah says:

    hopefully, the suspension gets updated because right now it looks like the cars are way too poppy or almost Russian mod like either way I’m super excited.

  30. Johnnyynf says:

    It will be perfect if this game have real time mutiplayer .
    Just imagine driving the dream car you designed and tuned with your firendand maybe race it with BeamNG’s game engine .

    And for those picky prayers who don’t like the default deformation model , maybe have a App for them to hand craft their car’s deformation model .

  31. Nick neary says:
