Can I dissasembly car parts manually, by my own (VR) hands?

  • You can't disassemble e.g. car seats manually, with your own hands. Please keep in mind that the gameplay is based on CMS18. Also, it's half-simulator, half-pure entertainment, so we need to find a balance between 'it's too hard!' simulation and 'yeah, I like it, it's fun!' entertainment.

Can I drive / test my or clients’ cars in VR, too?

  • Yes, you can do it in the full version of the game.

I own CMS18, can I have to pay for CMS VR, too?

  • Yes, because that’s a separate VR port. Upgraded, optimised, and enhanced to VR experience. You can make a bonus deal on the release with -10% off, or you can buy e.g. bundles Thief VR + CMS VR with extra off! (As well as with CMS 15, CMS 18, and UFS VR.)
