BeamNG have posted a super impressive progress update on their real time soft-body physics work to Youtube featuring new cars, inter-vehicle collisions, breaking glass, and more! It’s terrific stuff and demonstrates what is possible in terms of simulated vehicle damage.
How long it will be before we have games and computers able to simulate such levels of damage remains to be seen, and no doubt as has been the case in games such as Gran Turismo there may be manufacturers less than interested in seeing virtual versions of their cars destroyed in-game.
BeamNG stress that everything included in the video is a work in progress. Can’t wait to see what comes of it!
