BeamNG allows the use of additional vehicles and maps created by the community. Follow the steps below to learn how to install these additional content creations.

Note: As of 0.3.6.0(Steam experimental and now stable), zip files can now be loaded by BeamNG.drive from C:\users\<username>\Documents\BeamNG.drive\mods, this means all mods on the forums will need to be updated to support the new zip format. (More on that below)

Installing New Vehicles & Levels in 0.3.6.0+

To install a new vehicle or level in BeamNG.drive follow the steps below

  1. Download the .zip of the vehicle or level you wish to install.
  2. Drop the zip file in C:\users\<username>\Documents\BeamNG.drive\mods

Please note that the downloaded zip must support the new 0.3.6.0 zip format if you are running a game version under 0.4.0.5. In the game version 0.4.0.5 any zip should work when dropped into the mods folder.

Installing UI Apps

To install a new UI App in BeamNG follow the steps below

  1. Download the .zip of the UI App you wish to install.
  2. Move the contents of the .zip to the levels folder in your BeamNG installation, C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\BeamNG.drive for a default installation.

Packaging mods for uploading

If you're a modder looking to upload your creation to the BeamNG.drive forum, you'll need to pack your mods into a zip the correct way.

Your zip should contain a folder, if you're packaging a vehicle for release, then the folder inside the zip will be "vehicles" with your mod inside that folder. For levels, the folder name would be "levels" inside the zip folder.
