Here is a 1st Generation Bluebird Vision for under your tree! (or in your mods directory...)
The 1st Generation Vision was a type C bus made by BlueBird from 2003 – 2007.
-Animated props (including openable e-door and roof hatches)
-Changeable seat and floor color textures*
-District name on the side of the bus
-Selectable 8-way types (dropdown in the spawn menu)
Here's a trailer courtesy of pw721
-Fixed the left veer
-Added reflection in driver mirror
This should be the final final version!
In the future...
Currently I'm working on updating the bus to utilize some of the new features RoR has added. Right now, there are a few broken features, so expect an update to this bus as soon as we see a stable 0.4 release.
*You can download different seat/floor textures here: Brown Black Green Red Blue Here is the PSD for the district name, making editing it with the same font easy.

Been a long time in the works. Finally came to a spot I want to release it. No opening doors or dump bed, didn't wanna fuss with that stuff since I never use them. It has detail where it counts I think, in the suspension parts, texture work, damage, etc. Has a rear hitch for towing. Hope you like it.

Here it finally is! The Bombardier ALP-45DP dual powered locomotive.
It comes in two different liveries, AMT (Canada) and NJT (USA).
Both a version of the locomotive in diesel and in electric mode is available, only difference are the sounds and the removed exhausts on electric version.
Please carefully read the instructions BEFORE posting useless questions:
Use the train spawner placed on the map (small building where it says "Trains") or place it on a straight track piece via the .terrn file, DO NOT spawn in the truck spawner this will not work.
The ALP uses default truck controls. Always stay in automatic-transmission, it will not shift in the second gear!
F5/F6: to rais or lower the pantograph.
CTRL + 1: change directional lighting
CTRL + 2: front ditch lights
CTRL + 3: front lights
CTRL + 4: rear ditch lights
CTRL + 5: rear lights
CTRL + 6: wipers
The knouckle couplers couples other trains (using the same coupler, of course...) like other ALP's automatically. When coupled, both carriages are connected to each other ingame. If you want to uncouple two carriages, you need to unlock couplers on BOTH carriages in between you want to uncouple. The ALP has a small lever next to the rear knuckle coupler (with a lock/unlock-sign next to it) that can be grabbed by mouse. Pull to "unlock" position on both carriages and done. Not that complicated.
sputnik_1 - Without him this would not have been possible. He made trains actually work in Rigs of Rods (as you will see after reading this and testing the locomotive), outgoing from donoteats basic layout design. Furthermore he helped a lot with tweaking the ALP, to make it drive as good as it does. Many many thanks mate!
donoteat - He once had the idea to bring trains to RoR and made the great layout we are now using.
And thanks to the inveted members who tested this!
Added ropables so it can now be lifted with a crane.
Game might crash when you want to couple two ALP's, to avoid this disable high quality refelctive effeckts!
This is a Thomas Saf-T-Liner HDX and my first vehicle I have done all of the work getting it in game.
This is (as far as I know) RoR's first flexbody school bus!
The project is ongoing, so expect issues followed by fixes that cause other issues.
(Official Release 1.0)
~Put the roof running lights back (still haven't placed the rear ones)
~Brought back proper collision (now collision doesn't cause weird shaking)
~The front wheel meshes aren't balanced (noticeable at high speeds).
~The bus is larger than most buses. I should have scaled it better when I had the chance.
~Rear 3 red running lights haven't been placed yet.
~Deformation isn't very realistic.
Ever since I joined RoR I've loved modding buses, and am one of the few 'bus people' who is sick of seeing a *BRAND NEW* CE300 mod every week... In order to make up for it I decided to make my own bus that was different, original, and somewhat high quality for my experience level. So I decided to make an HDX, because type D's are rare in RoR and it is very easy to model.
Don't bust my chops about it, its my first vehicle I've ever made.
-Animated props (including openable e-door and driver window)
-Flexbody (non-FPS versions)
-Changeable textures all over the bus (main body color, roof color, rim color, seat color [comes with pre-packaged seat textures], window color/tint, crossing guard front color, and bus #.
-TC, ABS [off by default], Slopebrake
-Working fans and other random animated props (after 39.7 is released)
-Under-body (currently there are no axles or anything)
-Fix the spikes on the bottom of the mirror
-Other small adjustments
-Convert all textures to DDS (my DDS plugin for photoshop doesn't work so it is easier to save as png for quicker editing)

A Dutch skin for the Mercedes Atego Metz aerial firetruck.
It's a skin based on the Mercedes Atego from the fire department of Middelburg, Zeeland in the Netherlands.
I have tried to make it as real as possible, but because this firetruck is an older Mercedes Atego version than the one in use by the firedept. I could not exactly reskin all parts correctly. [read more]
Well here it is. The official release of my not-so-official FJ cruiser.
I worked nonstop on this car for a year and a half, and gave up about 6 months ago due to just loss of interest.
I had been talking to some friends recently on the forum who said they would really like to see it tidied up
and released. I dont exactly have some long drawn out story about how it got to where it is. It was really just
a huge learning experience. but finally decided to let it go because I lost all of the original files to the mesh.
I suck at writing. So heres a list. :|
pictures to the left- taken an edited by my main man, Ferrettank!
Known problems are as follows:
Missing quite a few meshes. (Mainly suspension pieces)
Interior is incomplete.
And there is a material bug with it on Deags Trail Island map. For whatever reason, the tires are yellow. I cant figure it out...
This was my first try at animated props, flex tires, and flares, so it is what it is! Hope you enjoy it.
Also, modding, do as you wish, post pics as you wish. I dont really care. But if you'd like to release any of your mods (and credit me ;D), please ask my permission first.
Here is my latest Kenworth mod. This is a T600 "Anteater" which was first introduced in 1985 and was Kenworth's first aerodynamic truck and a very radical change from the W900 line. This specific model is powered by a C15 Caterpillar engine with a 13 speed transmission. It features a fully animated interior- guages, shifter, pedals and steering wheel. The truck also has diff locks for hauling heavy loads.
Huge thanks to Box5 for the original W900, Jerald for the sounds, Fidoj for fine tuning and everyone who provided support and motivation along the way.
In the pack is the photoshop file to create custom skins. The ambient occlusion names correspond to the truck names, i.e AO1 = T600_1, AO4 = T600_4, etc. (5 and 1 share AO1). When you save the skin as a .dds be sure you have the right AO layer selected and the others invisible, otherwise it'll be all screwed up.
Melroe M-880 Prime Mover
This is a prime mover for real heavy loads build out of a former wheeled skid-steer dozer. Like the real thing it does not have any suspension but a lot of power ;-) .
My RoR model features some animated parts like the cooling fans and levers inside the cab as well as some custom sounds.
Mesh and N/B all by me, please do not upload any mods without my permission, thanks :-) .
