Any plans to do small hatches?

By small do you mean fiesta,polo,nova,micra size? If so probably not, id need to do a few to make it worthwhile and ive got quite a big list of big cars to finish/improvements to make first.

Well done Sam and anyone that helped him sort out the update. Had a quick go and enjoyed the new cars added etc. I'm sure when it's finished it will be amazing! Has to be the most popular UK Banger Racing Game/Mod at the moment.

Keep up the good work mate.


Awesome work Sam. Loads of improvements over the previous version of the mod.
The amount of customization possibilities through the liveries and parts/decoration opens up a whole new area. Great ingame feature, implemented really well.
Roof of cars not deforming is also a big step in the right direction damage wise. It certainly helps wrecked cars to stay looking like wrecked cars, rather than a piece of origami!
Looking forward to more progress over the coming year.

Yea, i dont have the original files so cant repair it. Always wanted physics looking at on it aswell,shared to many of bugbears so it drove round glued to the road.Making it unbalanced with other mod cars.

Great work by Sam and the team, Mod is spot on and seems to be popular on the server lists most nights seeing 4 full servers!

I'm really glad you're not going down the route of making it much too easy to drive these cars. Having to have a bit more skill to use the faster cars with Max speed setups, without spinning or losing speed from wheelspin is a lot more fun and rewarding if you get it right. I'm not into Arcade type racing so a big thanks for trying to keep this Mod real Sam. ;)


I really like the deformation grade on the mod cars and the slippery tracks (less grip) better than the vanilla game.

Would it be to hard to make this as a mod for the cars and tracks in the final release game ?

Or do you need to tweak each car and track seperately ?

It wouldn't be particularly hard to setup the base game to behave like the mod, but quite time consuming to adjust cars deformations.

Another banger mod patch. Turned out to contain a lot more than expected. Servers just being updated and will be back up shortly

-Adjusted collision matrix to reduce rollovers
-Lowered friction (-0.01) to reduce rollovers
-Added Wimbledon and Ringwood flood lit versions
-Added Night 2 weather (no lights)
-Added side protection to all cars (stops crazy tbone deforms)
-Removed damage_real.dset (crash bug fix)
-Removed health from all bugbear cars
-Added Bradford shale,Arlington,Westworld & track bits for older tracks ~jake
-Added #186 mk1grans skin ~boyle
-Added unpainted steel rims to granadas ~foster



I had problems finding the lighted tracks.

I had Online Bangers mod (18.03.) on my PC.
Steam downloaded some files today and I thought it was the update for the mod.

Mod enabled and it shows UK Ovals by TVE. I chose Ringwood track with night weather but there was no additional flood lit.

I disabled Online Bangers mod and unsubscribed the mod on Steam and then resubscribed.
It downloaded 4.9GB !! :D

Is the mod that huge ? :eek:

Then I discovered that I have to use Night 2 weather for the flood lit version. Better name it "Flood lit" or remove the normal "Night". :)

But then graphic errors appears on both of your reworked light tracks.
It seems to be only in the lower half of the screens.
See video.

Even with Bright day setting the error is there. Not on any other tracks.

You should notice to other users that they should use AI sets "Unlimiteds" or "MK2 Granny" for the mod to work.

14.2 GB (15,345,182,432 bytes) current mod size.

Hmm that is strange with the graphical errors.Only 1 other person has reported similar problems so far. Are you using v-sync? latest graphics card drivers? which GPU?
You are right about the ai sets and weather name. I will try and make those a bit clearer. You should notice the flood lights in all weather modes though, just less obvious than Night 2 with its limited sun light source.
