    Following the recent major build update release for BeamNG: Drive the developers have been at it again, releasing another new vehicle and some important hotfix amendments.

    Released back on Saturday with a massive changelog and some new content, much like busses yet another update has come along to address some new issues and add a couple more variants for the new four wheel drive "hopper" plus other vehicle adjustments.

    Build 0.9 Hotfix Patch Notes:

    • Hopper: added Dune Edition, added Sport Special, added more spare wheel and tire options, added optional 6-lug swap (brake meshes WIP), added new wheels for ZXT6, added colorable soft top, added high performance radiator (still many more mod parts to come), tuned off-road dampers, weakened mirror attachment, fixed instability around b-pillar area, made front roll bar breakable (windshield can now detach), added more steering damping for off-road steering, lowered tire pressure on Off-Road and Custom variants
    • D-Series/H-Series/Roamer: Fixed some missing triangles on lightbars, improved van roof rack jbeam, improved flexbody mapping of 3-link rear coilovers, added H25 Vandal off-road van variant, added snorkel to Off-Road configuration
    • Added non-collidable triangles to parts on D-Series, H-Series, and Hopper to help anti-clipping collision system
    • Ball: Updated Jbeam, added adjustable pressure
    • Fixed Alder Dragger 15×7 wheel clipping into some cars
    • Strengthened/cleaned up some fuel tanks
    • T-Series: Fixed flat bed instability on T75 frame, fixed rear wheels vibrating at rest, improved ram plow, added T65 Ram Plow config, added T600 turbocharger (600 hp)
    • Added torque reaction nodes to car’s undriven wheels
    • Changed trailers’ bindings from “Landing Gear” to “Trailer Legs” or “Trailer Jack”

    • Fixed rollover sled, now has an adjustable tilt angle
    • Improved turbo pressure reading while idling
    • Added multi-breakGroup and multi-deformGroup support
    • Fixed language problems: should be a lot more stable and usable now
    • Application manifest was missing, resulting the game running in windows 8.1 compatibility mode. Nothing serious, the performance screen just reported an incorrect windows version.

    • Fixed SimplePowertrainControll app tooltip from staying when changing vehicle.
    • Adjusted ETK digital temperature gauge display.

    • Fixed bug where gameplay modules were still loaded when the user returned to the main menu
    • Fixed bug where starting a new freerom while one was active caused an invalid access
    • Fixed bug where starting a new scenario while one was active caused an invalid access
    • Fixed density calculations of atmosphere at altitude
    • Temperature in space is now equal to 2.73 Kelvin
    • Pressure groups deflate now when any beam on their surface breaks

    I got to fire this game up again. It has been a long time ago. I think I missed loads of content.
