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 the dumper-version of my Mercedes Kurzhauber. Everything is made by me. Its ropable, so you could also carry it.
Its a bad frameeater, but you can deactivate the mirrors and the mesh-wheels if you ve poor framerates.
Its not already done, but for the moment its some nice stuff i think.
you can connect trailers to the front- and the back-hook
You can lower and lift the supports with F1/F2
You can lower and lift the Dumper with F3/F4
As long as you give me credits, you re allowed do verything you like to and that makes the trucks better.
Using parts of my trucks for your own project surely also allowed, only let the people know who has done the originals.
It was nice to get an PM if you plan to publish it on other sites than these.
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.

Starling 911, this is Starling Engine 1 responding. Yes ladies and gentlemen, I this is my first upload, and I have made a skin for the KME Preditor by Cydvx and Pascal. With Cydvx's permission I am releasing it. Now mind you this is a Standalone skin, Instructions are in the zipfile. they should help you.

Thanks to all beta testers and to everyone else who helped me at the
So alot has been updated in this pack, the skin is totally new, the tires are new, the lights are sharper and brighter. A re-bored engine giving 3000 revs more capable of pulling very heavy loads, especially with a new 18 gear transmission. it features abs, tcs, slope brake all custom tuned to fit the trucks.
Box5diesel very kindly has had the trucks to test and they are of his liking. here is a quote. [read more]
-Real weight, real power, real scale. (so don't expect to tow the ror trailers that way a kabillion lbs.)
-Lockers (press W)
-Operational dump bed, & tailgate
-Contactable bed to load vehicles or objects with ties (press O to tie down load)
-Animated winches on all except cargo version, some even have a rear winch.
-Flexbody everything pretty much
-Detailed Animated Interior with shifter.
-custom deuce sounds, with added turbo
-Shader shows up black sometimes, restart ROR until it appears normal, or download boring material below and drop in deuce zip.
-5th wheel version breaks when hooking to some trailers
-No flexbody tires (would be way to cpu heavy, it already is)
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)

This is The F-150 Raptor SVT from Ford.
Has leaf springs at the rear with some really nice travel. on the front double A arms for each wheel with fair amount of travel.
real fun to cruise. has tow hitch for towing thingies.
Not much of exciting look since it is only N/B chassis but i find those kind of trucks most pleasing.
This pack is my attempt to capture the Streamline Moderne style popular in the 1930s and 1940s. The vehicles are all fictional, but their performance is realistic. I hope you'll enjoy driving them as much as I have enjoyed making them.
1948 Martin T64S "Custom" Tractor
A very low-slung 6x4 tractor. It has independent front suspension with double wishbones and load sharing rear suspension. The engine is a naturally aspirated 12-cylinder diesel driving through a 7-speed gearbox and locking differentials. Overall length is 29 ft, wheelbase 22 ft from front axle to centre of rear axle group, width 102 in, height 14 ft 9 in to tip of smokestacks. Kerb weight is 20,000 lbs, gross combination weight 80,000 lbs.
Fully loaded, the T64S will reach a top speed of 60 MPH with one of the included trailers. It will accelerate from 0-50 MPH in 1 minute, 0-60 MPH taking approximately 2 minutes.
1948 Martin O40 Tanker
A streamlined tank trailer in fictional "Hexaco" livery. Steel unibody, load sharing suspension. Overall length is 40 ft, wheelbase 28 ft from kingpin to axle group centre, width 102 in, height 10 ft 6 in. Loaded weight is 60,000 lbs.
1948 Martin F45 Flatbed
A simple flatbed trailer with stainless steel load deck and load sharing suspension. The deck is submeshed with the rollon flag and has ties to secure loads. Overall length is 45 ft, wheelbase 36 ft from kingpin to axle group centre, width 102 in, deck height 59 in, overall height 79 in to top of bulkhead. Kerb weight is 12,500 lbs, rated load 47,500 lbs.
1948 Martin V59 "Streamliner" Dry Van
A very large and somewhat impractical dry van. It has a streamlined stainless steel unibody and load sharing suspension. Overall length is 59 ft, wheelbase 47 ft from kingpin to axle group centre, width 102 in, height 14 ft 9 in. Loaded weight is 60,000 lbs.
These have only been tested in Rigs of Rods version 0.38.67.
The wheels have 40 nodes each, and the meshes were made in Sketchup. Don't expect these to be FPS-friendly.
The trailers are roll coupled via the system used by Lenni and Badboy for trailer steering. The centre of gravity and suspension are tuned accordingly; the trailers may topple easily on trucks that lack these nodes.
To minimise rolling resistance, the wheels are pushing the limits of the beam engine. They tend to oscillate when stationary. Caution is advised when stopping or parking on slopes as they may creep.
The trailers have very low drag. The T64S will not pull most other trailers at high speed.
CGTextures does not allow redistribution of its textures under open source licences. You must remove/replace their texture before releasing modifications of this truck. All other assets used are available for modding. See the readme for specific file information and licensing details.
It is meshed, and much higher quality. Credits:

Modding and releasing any content for this bus on a mod of it or on another vehicle is permitted and encouraged as long as due credit is given.
Basically, Mod away and give credit.
It is fully skinnable, if you do not like the plastic paneling on the bus, just comment out agora_fb.mesh and agora_rear_lights.mesh from the flexbody section as well as the forset line below them.
It is also deform-able and flexbody.
I have also used flexbodies for the tires, so that they work in multiplayer and still are deform-able and separate from the rim mesh.
Trailer P-32 is designed for quick transport wheeled and tracked vehicles and other material to the weight of 40 tons.

I present to you, the 1915 Ford Model T. This holds the name of the oldest real car ever to be put into RoR. This is the Original "Go everywhere, anywhere" car.
There are 6 versions. There is a Pickup truck (2WD and 4WD), a Sedan, a Coupe, a Touring, and a Junker version.
The gear ratios/axle ratios/wheel size/engine power/top speed are all real specifications. The top speed is a physically limited 40 MPH on the dot for all versions except the power-degraded Junker. The Junker's top speed is closer to 30. All versions except the Junker have 21 Horsepower. Junker has around 18.
You cannot drive this car in Automatic Transmission mode, as the gap between 2nd and 3rd, then 3rd and 4th are too large for the game to gearshift between them correctly. Thus, you must drive in Manual or Fully Sequential gearbox mode to get up to cruising speed.
These vehicles are not flexbody, and each on average have between 10K and 20K polys total including all 4 wheels. Honk the horn for a sound only '10s - '30s Fords can produce. Aoooga! Sometimes when you turn, it heavily understeers because the front axle is not very strong, so be careful.
Custom sounds are thanks to DODGE charger (thank you!)
All meshes and N/Bs are thanks to myself, Sirendude2011.
Do not mod this vehicle. Treat this like you would a real Model T 100 years of age. Would you (attempt) to hellaflush a Model T? No, so don't do it. Same goes for hydraulics and lifts with mud tires. It is impossible to skin it with anything except solid colors (no designs), so don't try.
Enjoy this historic vehicle! The driving experience is like no other vehicle in RoR history, believe me.
This is my selfmade Mercedes "Kurzhauber". It has good offroad capabilitis for a truck of this kind. Suspension and Engine are in a medium setup, so i hope everyone can have fun with this. There are Mirrors and Meshwheels prepared in the truckfile, simply activate them, if your machine has enough gfx power. There will follow more different versions of this truck.
updated version - some bugfixes
added 2 trailers, semi and turnaxle trailer.
did some mesh-updates....
Big thanks to Dodge Charger, Murkas and Auke1 for their help.
These are two of my favorite trucks, 1975 Chevrolet Titan 90 and GMC Astro 95.
The Astro 95 and the Titan 90 both have a Detroit 8v-71 318.
updated again with Sounds, The Titan is now longer in the GN Empire Builder Scheme [read more]
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.
This is the Mercedes Benz Actros 8x8 pack.
This package includes 8 versions:
- version with no upper part
- cartransporter (+trailer)
- log truck (+trailer NEW!)
- box-truck(+trailer NEW!)
- flatbed (+trailer NEW!)
These are my Winnebago's I have been working on for a couple of months. Instead of basing them on a particular year, I just used the styling cues of the early 70's. More or less if these were real I would call them licensed reproductions(Though not really Licensed). Yes, they are made in sketch... But I feel that it is one of my best mods ever. Please keep the sketch comments to your self, I would really appreciate it. Now on to the credits...

Kenworth trial truck based around a w900. The pack contains two options- regular and FPS. Features open, split and locked diff options. Low gearings for offroading and crawling. The regular version also has flexmesh tyres.
Thanks to Box5 for the original meshes and chassis.
