Beamng Drive Patch 0.25 Notes – June 15, 2022

Civetta Scintilla

After a long silence, the owl finally shows its talons once again! New to BeamNG.Drive in Version 0.25 is the landmark addition of the fierce and charming Civetta Scintilla, a modern supercar powered by a naturally-aspirated V10 engine that’s ready to spark your passion! The Scintilla is the most advanced car in our line-up, pushing the envelope with complex driving dynamics systems, a unique physics skeleton and one of the longest, most intensive design periods of any BeamNG vehicle, resulting in a truly refined machine.

We’ve also made some improvements to the Bruckell Bastion, Cherrier FCV, ETK 800 series, ETK K-series, Hirochi SBR4, Gavril H-Series, and the Soliad Wendover as well as broader vehicle fixes, audio improvements, and sprinkled a couple of new wheels on top.

Garage Mode

The Garage Mode is getting a long-awaited revamp and while it’s still a work in progress, it’s ready for you to play in! The Garage Mode has its own dedicated UI, with Garage and Vehicle options – for the moment these only include lighting – and integrated vehicle options.

Missions

We’ve added nearly 100 new missions, including several new mission types. The new AI Race, Cannon, Crawl, Hypermilling, and Run For Your Life mission types will add some excitement to your life. And the already existing Scenarios Garage-to-Garage Delivery and Barrelknocker have also been ported to the mission system and are now available across multiple maps.

In the meantime, we have updated the Delivery, Drift, and Drag mission types with new missions and some fixes. The Driver Training Campaign has been ported into the Mission System with several updated and added missions. The Campaign is also no longer linear, but branching: one mission might unlock multiple others, or you need to complete more than one mission to unlock the next.

We’ve also added local leaderboards for all the missions, showing your best or recent attempts together with stats like scores, times or distances, depending on the mission type. These stats are also displayed on the Map View and Mission-Start and -End screens. We’ve also fixed issues with bus stops and pathfinding for some Bus Mode missions, and made several minor bug fixes.
