      Manually delete the west coast usa folder in documents/

      Had the same issue. This fixes it.

  4. Philip Nielsen says:

    The etk 800 series, have a bug with the taillights, and the rear bumper. The taillights and rear bumper is 0,08 inches away from the car. Is that the game or some of my mods?

  5. Willian says:

  7. CubBear07 says:

    Could you fix the 4WD transfer case on the H-Series not making it able to drive when put into 4WD? This is the normal transfer case.

  8. Kenken says:

    I want to run alone on the drag circuit

    Please return the old ver light tree work…

  9. Thomas says:

    DT40L can’t slowdown in 0.17

  10. Dankus Potatus says:

    some cars are having unknown torque loss when spawned in and even after reloads. (cars will struggle to even keep their engines on) noticed in the bluebuck, moonhawk, and burnside

  11. Dankus Potatus says:

    The Drag tree is glitchy and inconsistent , sometimes freezing. Drag opponent ai are unrealistically slow even with the same or more powerful car as the player’s. The sensitivity for the staging in the drag lanes are really touchy. Cop ai pursues too slow as well. (love the update, you guys did an outstanding job, cheers)

  12. William Carrier says:

    Only thing I wanna see is the UI getting super slow and buggy. .. and splitscreen local play properly done.

  13. Matt S. says:

    The Bluebuck has no horn

    Good update guys, love the traffic.

  14. Jacob F says:

    my update says 43 days and counting

  15. Jacob F says:

    my update says 43 days and counting
    is normal?

  16. iInsanityx09 says:

    Windows 7 (full service pack upgrade) issues with modded vehicles still

    I’m still getting traffic AI issues where some modded vehicles cause the game to bug out and vehicles become immediately deformed and flung into space (The simulation pauses due to this issue). Is this due to older modded vehicles just being incompatible, or some coding issue?

  17. says:

    Создал трассу, на которой устраиваю гонку 2-х авто, управляемые искусственным интеллектом. А теперь гонка не получается, машины боятся друг к другу приближаться. Это новый трафик так на них влияет, пожалуйста сделайте кнопку отключения такого поведения, что бы машины не видели друг друга как раньше

  18. Reagan Herbert says:

    And yet my A.I Traffic still doesn’t work.

  19. zesss says:

    Great work on the new update. Dont know what it is but since new update game use to load in bout 2 min westcoast hwy now its like 15 min what can i do to improve this no mods have been added or changed.

  20. Andrew Hersom says:

    With the drag AI, the cars are slower than normal. The AI also cant drive sequential or manual

  21. Luiz Gustavo de Oliveira says:

    Having troubles with bluebuck. I was upgrading the taxi version, but could not put the lowrider wheels. The rear right always broke right when the car spawns.

  22. Xavier says:

    Update me PLs

  23. Vicente Solorio says:

    I have this problem where the game crashes the second time I respawn my vehicle. I’m on windows 10 on an HP Pavilion 2017 model it just might be just me that’s having this problem but this is really annoying the game isn’t even playable

  24. Jacob Flowers says:

    Sometimes when i drag race on west coast map it wont show our times after the race is over

  25. Jay says:

    Whenever I have a fairly mild crash with a car in the game or reset/ restore my car (which is inevitable with this being Beam NG Drive) or even spawn in an automation car, the game crashes and says my GPU has an error. I have found out that my current software is working fine but BeamNGdrive does not work properly anymore with my current software. This makes the game nearly unplayable as I hope the devs make a hot-hotfix for this new update of beamng drive.
