    Why is it basically just a worse version of the hoverbikes? It's slower (or at least feels that way), can't jump and gets stuck on terrain MUCH more. Why so?

    I think its advantage is its aesthetic. You make a 90s-looking house, with palm trees, and neon light atmosphere, and put the car beside the house. I believe it will look great.

    it's a novelty item for when you have more peace credits than you know what to do with :p

    honestly, the only item that I have any complaints about from 1.4 has to be the lazercaster, it really should have an alt ability, and it feels more like a T6 weapon than a T7 one

    If you make a 90s-looking house, with palm trees, and neon light atmosphere, and put the car beside the house it will look like California in your personal taste aesthetic.

    I was digging around the files back when this update was released and realized that all the vehicles that were added run on some weird and unfinished codes. Seem like they were enabled as a WIP novelty thing, sort of quick fun.
    It would be cool to have them obtainable and actually useful but think a modder who have time and more experience for it will be the only one able to make it since I doubt a next big patch with move vehicles will come any time soon. Hoverbikes were and are still the only useful vehicles present and they don't really look that desirable anyway.

    Basically furthest I managed to do was to make the cars able to buy, spawn them and that is it, they can't be placed back into the key also they break the game too. They need to be remade into a standalone pack and have new code. I ran out of time and think I am missing knowledge to make this more comprehensive and usable too. So I pass and good luck to others.
