So, over at the Dwarf Fortress forums, someone’s running an Automation Let’s Play. (You may remember Automation from its engine designer, or possibly from its more recent campaign modes and its Starsector-like pace of development, but either way, it’s a tycoon game about building cars and a car company around them.)
Sometime between the last time I opened Automation several years ago and today, they added a BeamNG.drive exporter, and BeamNG added the Automation test track. When you finish designing a car, Automation gives you a simple top-down view of the test track, some telemetry from the car, and a time. Obviously, there was only one thing to do.
The 1960 Baron sedan features a tremendously large 142hp V8, two tons of steel, and a suspension designed with a decided preference for comfort over cornering. Oh, and because the rear brakes can easily overwhelm the rear tires’ grip, the rears lock if you brake too hard, at which point the rears become the fronts.
