I have decided to go ahead and release the Bobcat S130 Skidsteer Loader with the bucket attachment, along with a hay bale that can be used with it.
Some notes about controlling the loader:
1. It handles a lot like a Bobcat - that is, it rides rough, will tip if you slam between forward/reverse or carry a load to high off the ground. Don't expect to be able to go flying off of curbs with the hay bale held up high and stay upright!
2. It has 2 forward gears and 1 reverse gear. The 2nd forward gear is strictly for high-speed, unloaded travel on flat ground. First gear allows the Bobcat S130 to reach its maximum "realistic" speed, and should be used in most situations.
3. If using the automatic transmission, use the PGUP/PGDN keys to select first or second gear manually so that it does not try to shift gears. If allowed to shift gears you will notice it can become very hard to drive.
As I finish up the other versions, I will release them accordingly.
I request that no one releases a "bale spear" version of the Bobcat, because I already have one being made that just needs some final adjustments.
For now I am not going to develop the "manual attachment" version any further, because loads cannot be used in 0.34 MP, and therefore would not make much sense to drive a Bobcat around without any attachments. All of the versions that I release will have the attachment already connected to the Bobcat so it can be used in MP without any trouble.
Also included is a simple hay bale that you can move around/rope on to with the Bobcat bucket.
As a last note:
My guidelines on modding my vehicles are as follows:
You may freely edit and distribute my vehicles as you wish, under the following conditions:
I am given credit for being the original creator WHEREVER the vehicle is discussed.
I remain the creator of the chassis in the .truck file. You may add yourself in as the "chassis modifier" or something similar, if you do perform modifications to it.
You do not release vehicles which I have specifically stated that I will be releasing soon, as in the case of the "Bale Spear Bobcat".
A PM or email is always appreciated before you release the modification, but not required.
Scania R 420 and R 480 Topline trucks, two different skins included.
Updated, doesn't use sections anymore.
Installation as usual, put the file in mydocuments/RigsofRods/packs.
If you have the older version then please remove it (this doesn't automatically overwrite!)
Works only in 0.36 and above.
All mesh and node and beam parts of the model are made by me, credits to pedro for the steering wheel texture.
If you want to reskin it make sure it doesn't conflict with my original pack in any way and contact me on the forums before you release any derivates of that model.
Only use one version of the truck at a time, more might crash the game.
I am not responsible if you mess up your RoR by installing or using this truck in a wrong way.
UPDATE: I've been working on a variation of my own and it's complete, or close enough. It is fully submeshed and will contact with other vehicles(that must to be contactable). It's sides and tail can fold down. The rear rollcage can be lifted using Ctrl+F4/Ctrl+F6. It has ties in the back so you can drive an vehicle into it. Unfortunately all the stuff I added makes it too "tippy" to carry a vehicle into water anymore but driving on land is fine. Also has a trailer hitch that can be completely folded away if you're not going to use it. All controls are listed in-game. Have fun.
This is an Tatra 813 pack I modified from Pricordes original versions and added "Wheels2" to all of the models so you can inflate/deflate the tires. Also updated to work properly in the latest RoRs release as it was having texture issues before. Use [ to deflate and ] to inflate the tires. This is not as easy on your system as the originals were. They were only about 1300 beams before, now each has over 2800 to properly simulate the wheels. [read more]
A Scania ampliroll, based on the default Scania loader by Pricorde. I made this a while back (now added UID and a miniature file).
Works nicely in the latest version(0.38.43). NOT tested with older versions.
Hello, this is Khadner back with a International 9800i wrecker and loader. This is a mod to the Scania Wrecker and Loader by Pricorde. If you would like to release a mod to this specific version you may just please credit me and notify me via the forums if you do. All the commands are the same as the Scania wrecker and this vehicle can be accessed by pressing 'R'. If you have this vehicle out and you press 'R' you will end up in this vehicle unless you spawn another Scania wrecker after this one.
