Update v0.18.4 – Crawler Scenario Improvements

20 December 2019

In this tiniest of tiny updates we kicked the track marshal out of the airconditioned trailer to paint some lines on the ground for the crawling scenarios. So now the courses aren’t a county-wide free for all. You’re still ok to drive outside the lines, but the competitive among you can make it a point to remain within them.

Gameplay

  • Added lines to demarcate the crawler course boundaries

Update v0.18.3 – The Ibishu Hopper Crawler Release

19 December 2019

Where other vehicles say “No way. No how.”, the Ibishu Hopper Crawler says “No roads? No problem!” Designed to find a path over and around obstacles and terrain that puts the fear of the scrapyard into other vehicles, the Ibishu Hopper Crawler features a lift kit, upgraded suspension, super-sized offroad wheels, four wheel drive, finely tuned gearing and body armor where appropriate. There’s also a roll cage for those moments where you go from extreme pucker factor to sudden release, if you catch our drift. Whether inching its way over boulders or slamming through undulating countryside, the Ibishu Hopper Crawler is for those who see potential paths wherever they go. Try it out in the three new crawling scenarios designed to show off the capabilities of this mountain goat of vehicles.

Best wishes for the holidays from all of us here at BeamNG. You’re an awesome community and we couldn’t do the things we do without your continuing support and encouragement.
