BeamNG just released the TechDemo and Alpha Access to their awesome physic engine a couple of minutes ago.

 

You can download free tech demo here or buy an alpha access if you wan more features + regular updates for just $15 here.

 

 

 

 

Who we are


BeamNG is a young startup company developing a state of the art real time physics simulation engine. We are currently a team of two programmers and two artists that founded the company in 2011.


Our goals


Our main focus is on how things move rather than how things look on the screen. We aim to bring our expertise in real time soft-body physics and soft-body physics model design to the forefront of game physics simulation, making available the technology and know-how to as a wide an audience as possible. To achieve this, we are designing the engine and corresponding assets, so as to be independent of the underlying game engine and Operating System.
Right now the physics engine is running on a multicore CPU configuration, but we are also in the process of supporting GPUs via OpenCL.


Our mission


To have realistic, accurate, destructible and malleable physics everywhere. To make anything possible.

This looks seriously impressive! I could totally see this work out in so many games and in so many use cases. In the end it will all depend how power hungry this physics engine will be :P

This is pretty cool! Going to download it now and test it out. Hope that this engine will be implemented to games later.

Finally!

Still many bugfixes to do but man, that is some ambitious project. I'll buy an alpha access key, that's for sure.


Real gamers care about gameplay, not resolution.

Been wanting something like this for years. I played the heck out of the tech demo already and plan on messing around a bunch more. And after I'm tired of the tech demo they are probably getting my money.

 

For those who want to know the tech demo is running on full settings between 50 and 70 fps @ 1080p on a 2600k and a 7870 xt.

8GB DDR3 1600, 120GB Kingston HyperX 3K SSD, 1TB Seagate, Antec earthwatts 430, NZXT H2

Verified max overclock, just for kicks: http://valid.canardp....php?id=2609399

Could you list out the feature in the alpha once u got urs? Planning to donate some money to them as well but i wanna know the alpha content. The tech demo is great, no slowdown on my system at all.

Can do, I largely just want to show support for people who are finally making this happen.

 

Playing with the tech demo I can see myself getting hooked on off roading like I never have before. Those stair bits near the beginning are fun.

Alright, I've mucked about a little with the alpha now.

 

To me the physics make some cars unplayable. The pickup and the hatch back are the only ones I can do anything useful with. The sedan and the sports car are extremely tail happy and the van is slow. Though I haven't tried any mods yet there does seem to be some fixes from the communities for this.

 

The places where I think this game will excel in its current state are off road and demolition derby. If the physics get fixed/modded to be more practical then road racing would be loads of fun too. To me at least the driving model doesn't seem to like high speeds in its current state.

 

I also think that soft-body damage on the environment would be an awesome next step, But seeing as spawing only 5 vehicles including my own will bring my cpu utilization to %70 (stock 2600k) and my fps to the 30's then I see a small chance of that happening. I'd say anything more than a 4 car demo derby would be extremely difficult for anything less than a sandy bridge quad core. Plus that answer's my personal question on why we may not have seen a game like this yet. (aside from rigs of rods, but BeamNG is much more refined right now)

 

In short, if the physics were more usable, the environment destructible, and I had a computer that was at least twice as fast, This would be one of my most favorite games ever, and time plus the game being open to modders can easily fix all of those.

They're gonna bring OpenCL support, maybe that will help to balance the CPU load.
