V16 FAQ
TL;DR!
V16s were temporarily exclusive to Turbocharged / Supercharged supporters.
V16 are now part of a purchasable Supporter Upgrade Pack.

What was promised?
Back before Early Access was a thing, we did sell an Early Access version of Automation via our own website. From 2012 to 2014, potential buyers had the choice between the Naturally Aspirated base version of the game for $25, and the Turbocharged version of the game selling for $35. The latter promised the inclusion of exclusive V16 engines as soon as they are done. The Turbocharged version later changed to become the Supercharged version, selling for the same price tag, also coming with the promise of V16 engines as soon as they are done.

How do you get the V16s? (You do NOT own old premium version)
If you don't have the Turbocharged or Supercharged version from back in the day:[/i]
You can support us and get the V16s here: https://store.steampowered.com/dlc/293760/

How do you get the V16s? (You do own old premium version)
The premium version of the game is tied to your old-forum accounts.
Logistically this means that you will have to log in to your old forum account tied to your premium game version and go where you previously converted your Automation key to become a Steam key. Your V16 Steam key will be listed right there. The link to that page is here this: http://phpbb3.automationgame.com/ucp.php?i=199
You can recover your account here: https://www.automationgame.com/legacy-accounts/

You own the premium version, but can't recover your account?
In that case contact us via support@camshaftsoftware.com and mention which email address(es) you could have used to create your old forum back in the day.

Which version of the game did you buy back in the day? If it was the Naturally Aspirated version then indeed you don't get the V16s right now.

nope i dont think that this works.
Try your e-mail adress or something or search in your mail accounts for your forums account data.

nope, this is personal key which is already in use. So you need your own key.

dude where do you get the key from if it dont work next time its ok but if devs do sell i think it should be £1.99 coz its just one engine and a supercharger unless its more stuff like idk rare car bodies or other fuel types then petrol maybe id buy it but sorry if i have casued any issues on here still love the game

Im having trouble remembering my username so i cant claim my key for the v16 engines
Vitor [Bullets] Sep 1, 2017 @ 10:34am 
I bought the turbocharged version years ago and I dont got the v16 =/
Killrob  [developer] Sep 1, 2017 @ 12:48pm 
@max wheatley 1997 & @x-X-MIKEEE-X-x : I updated the above FAQ with info about that in the last point.

@Vitor [Bullets]: Make sure you log into the correct account to get the key, many people have more than one account, but only one has the version in question linked to it.
