With realistic leaning, and collision physics.

or circumvent pretty much everything except for modelling and make a bike + sidecar charge mikro reskin

A side car would ruin any of the cool a motorcycle would have.  I'd say that putting a side car on it would make it not even worth the effort of reskinning a car.  Nobody likes sidecars.

 

Example:  

 

Looks pretty cool.

Something I'd be ashamed to see even my grandfather riding.

In my opinion, its either free balancing motorcycles, or no motorcycles.  I'd even take training wheels over a side car.

Why do people keep bringing this up for christ's sake?!

Listen and listen carefully:

IT'S NOT AS EASY AS YOU MAKE IT OUT TO BE.

 

It's not just "add a two wheeler, done".
It's not just "code physics, done".

The engines has limitations and there are literally TONS of questions left unanswered.
 

How are you gonna code physics and leaning in a decade old engine?
What will those physics be like?
Does it even make sense with the new engine they are working on?
How is the driver supposed to behave when he gets shot or when he crashes?
How is the hitbox gonna work?
Is he even gonna be hitable on the bike?
What if the bike blows up?
How do you die on a bike?

Can you even die on it?
What is gonna happen if the bike flips over?
What happens if the bike is flipped over and you try to access it?
How can you ensure the bike stays upright when you get out of it?
How is the handling supposed to be?
How can you balance the bike against other vehicles?

How do you prevent it from giving you an unfair advantage?
Can you shoot from a bike?
If yes how do you implement that?
What animations are required for this?
Who will make these animations if they don't have animation designers?
What about potential bugs?
Is it worth adding a new source of potentially game-breaking bugs just for the sake of fun?
What are the benefits of it in the first place?
Does it fit APB's playstyle?
How will bikes and their physics affect server performance?
Could you stand on top of the bike?
If yes, could you carsurf on it?
What happens if you crash into a wall with full speed?
Will you fly off your bike or just stand like nothing happened?
How are the damage models supposed to work?
What damage models are there gonna be for a bike?
How do you change the models to make sure you aren't violating any rights?
What's with the entire legal side of it anyway?
Aren't there more important things to redirect energy towards?
Are bikes a priority for this game?
How could you prevent people from abusing bikes for glitching?
Are carmods gonna work with it?
If yes how is it gonna be implemented?
Does a brick work for it then?
If no then why not?

I could go on and on and on and on, those are just a very brief selection of the questions that came to mind when I was thinking about this for about 5 minutes.
And I haven't even touched things like cost, availability, or handling which pose another set of 200 different questions.

You see, this is a problem this community has had for decades now, you guys get a random idea popping into your head and you don't even dare to think about it for at least 10 seconds to realize things aren't as easy as you make them out to.
"I have an idea, the devs can figure out the problems but I want it now!"
That's preschool-level thinking right there.

Yeah no, sorry partner, ain't working out that way.


APB community be like:

I know what fairfight exactly does i was just trying to make it look like sh*t cause i dont like it

And here I am wondering why "post-truth" became the word of the year 2016.
