Dream Car Builder is like the polar opposite of that; it’s made for the natural born tinkerers and wannabe engineers. The builder looks more like a CAD program than a video game! (but the learning curve is still easy)
Right now, I’m trying to build a car with realistic wishbone suspension, and I’m actually having to do research on suspension geometry and apply real-world principles with the roll centre, caster angle, scrub radius, etc. in order to perfect the handling. Making changes to the shock absorbers and swaybars has the same effects on understeer and oversteer as it does in real life and in sim-racing games. If that sounds like fun to you, then buy this game now.
I am an engineer who spends all day working with 3D modelling software. Simply put, Dream Car Builder is what I wish I was using all day at work. The game allows for the creation of an incredibly diverse selection of vehicles, aircraft, and so on, but this is not some cheesy cut-and-paste building system, this is almost more like CAD, (albiet infinitiely more fun to use). The interface is simple, and easy to navigate, and the design control menus are well laid out and very clear.
The player is resposible for every aspect of the design, but having a familiarity with CAD is by no means necessary to enjoy the game. Being able to see and feel changes applied to a vehicle’s dynamics in the garage while cruising around one of the many maps, makes Dream Car Builder unique. Just playing the game and refining a design can help to develop a real understanding of the way the physical world interacts with a mechanical system. Beginners can start with some of the excellent work posted to the workshop, modify them, or start their own designs from scratch. For advanced players of Dream Car Builder, the sky is the limit. Excellent game, and it gets better with every update. Strongly recommend!
A nice little game thats headed in the right direction. Its in the good hands of a sole developer who isnt lazy and is constantly improving the aspects of his game.
There is a pretty in-depth building system here and lots of time can be wasted making cool designs. The physics are also quite complex and fairly realistic.
Its currently lacking content. No AI races, multiplayer, manual transmission and controller support. As it stands, its a damn good car-building game.
the idea of building your own car seemed fun to me at first but after a quick try i realized that i dont enjoy it afterall and that i preffer drive cars then building them.
would only recommend to people who are the opposite of me.
game isnt bad itself but not my cup of tea.
Very good game, and the developer is constantly working on it (unlike, it seems, many other early-access games). It’s great for anyone who’s been into those bridge building games, or physics based games, or even just racing/off road car games.
– Virtually bug free, which is fantastic for early-access.
– Excellent physics modelling; everything behaves how you should expect it to, and behaves accurately.
– Best integration with the Steam Workshop that I’ve seen in-game. Already a lot of user-made creations.
– Custom maps available, though the standard map has a lot of different terrain to get you going.
– Level of "OCD" is up to you; you can build a car pretty quick (or customize a default or steam Workshop car) and get racing, or spend hours tweaking every little aspect and getting things just right to shave a second or two off your laps.
– Very familiar GUI/controls to anybody who has used a CAD program before. 3-window modelling space is a great idea and works very well to let you see what you’re doing.
– Graphics could be better. Based on my framerates, this game could increase its textures and add some better shaders without being a hinderance to even mid-level PCs.
– GUI needs an update; the menus and buttons look a bit like an old Windows 95 strategy game or something.
– No controller support (YET. This is on the Dev’s ToDo list, so check the details and discussions to see if it’s been implemented when you read this if controller support is a must-have). Having said that, due to the nature of the off-road racing, the keyboard isn’t nearly as annoying to use as a road racing game for the time being.
I have build a car with 40 wheels and 20 engines
1) Yes I’ve noticed bugs but I’ve already reported them to you and the ones I have seen have been fixed already
2) Most things are clear in the game but I would recommend adding video support in-game so you can post tutorials on how to make something like a working suspension, instead of prebuilt saves you can load.
3) I love this game and have not gotten bored of it mostly because I am usually in sandbox, although I still enjoy single player.
4) I like single player but I think it needs work and some refinement, for example you need to add some racing maps in, add tracks, and when you can publish the best map or track someone has made into single player.
5) My opinion about sandbox is that it is amazing and that I love how you can post tracks in-game for other people to try out and it’s fun to be able to build what ever you want and just mess around and enjoy it.
6) My opinion of the game is 4 out of 5 stars because of how great of a game this is and how you can build what ever you want and their is almost no limit to what you can build. The reason I didn’t give this game a higher rating is because it still needs work and it still has those few ideas and details that would make this game ever better, I enjoyed this game and can’t wait to see what becomes of it in the future
This game has been fixed 5 out of 5 stars.
The game is awesome for someone like me. I love cars and how they work, and I love to sketch out concepts on paper. Using my design skills and knowledge of cars helped me to create my first 3 designs in a few hours.
…and if you have ADHD like me, you will probably find yourself attaching jets to the sides of your design 5 minutes after building it.
10/10 would make cars fly again.
I accually love this game a lot, a little too much, just a tad.
