Members Choice XVI Pack Released!

Welcome to the, slightly earlier than normal, release of the 16th Members Choice Pack!

  • 1993 Rheanol Twizmo 1.2:
    The most beloved of meme cars. With a "face" like that, is it possible to hate it?
  • 1998 Fawn Catamount 2.5 X:
    Another attempted reboot of MotorNation's cover car, unfortunately like its predecessor it never quite made it!
  • 1975 Lancrossi Sirius 2.4 Stradale:
    Coupling fantastic 1970s wedge styling, rally prowess and an italian V6 under the hood - you don't need to look far to find a reason to like it.
  • 1991 Hamda Brief:
    Completing the ABC of Japanese Kei-class sports cars, the brief gives you a lot of fun in a (very) small package!
  • 1992 Lalland DEI 400 2.5:
    (Bonus) The mid-late refresh of the British-Dutch staple. Filling up the fleets of many firms, from postal vans to the folks in blue.

As usual the above vehicles may be available new or second hand in the classifieds, as appropriate, from time to time! All players can access these vehicles. A big thank you to those that have contributed towards getting these in-game!

Longer Classified Adverts for Members!

As you may have already seen, members can now advertise vehicles for up to four weeks at a time! This means less work selling cars in the classifieds and it does work out slightly cheaper per week of advertising.

Vehicle Updates
  • Updated 1987 Croissen VC 2.5 25 DTR Turbo 2 Safar stats
  • Updated Auby B-4 cargo capacities
Members Choice XVII Finish Date & Possible Frequency Changes

The finish date of the next members choice poll will be moved back to the 17th April due to holidays. In future, I am thinking of launching a poll about the possibility to increasing the time between members choice polls to allow other content and features to be delivered sooner.

At present my ability to deliver other content, features and tools is more limited due to the time taken and frequency of the vehicle packs. I do however very much appreciate that everyone will have different preferences and ultimately I'm just trying to strike the best balance! So keep an eye out for that to have your say!

With the Job Centre offering the ability to do much more in the game, there has never been a better time to join! Every penny makes a difference and it only costs from as little as £1.99 a month! (when paid yearly)

Don't miss out on the full experience!

Other noteworthy changes since v0.44.2:
  • Updated vehicle count, up from 380
  • Began the process in automating Patreon memberships
  • Added more vehicles to own car submissions
  • Updated sustainability metrics and development roadmap
  • Platform upgrades
