Hello users of the rigs of rods forum, today I proudly update the FLC. Most of you know what it is, a school bus. many of you might be saying "aw crap, another CE mod." but, this is not the case. This has custom sounds, custom preformance, the ACX mirrors, newly positioned crossing gate, new flares, and new warning lights. credits for original CE go to the following:
So, I'll give you a little background knowledge on this bus.
I always wanted to drive a bus that I, and only I have dreamed of. I figured that I could find something on the site that was cool and wasn't just another CE. so I decided to read up on how to mod Rigs, it was certantly easier than other simulators I've seen in regaurds to modding it. That is how I ended up in this position with this bus. Please note that it is not fully completed so with that said, It still has no interior and only sub-mesh.
Updated sounds. Hooray! Feaetures the ASP flAilus, Enginefan vervion, and W/O engine fan sounds for the norm.
The newer authors to this bus would include:
Me (tomytom99): sounds, preformance, skins, and moving the crossing gate down.
ROR-EMS: mirrors and mirror placement
Here is the thread for the FLC: [link]http://www.rigsofrods.com/threads/91010-ASP-FLcolumbus-Once-Again-Updated-6-26-12-going-onto-repo[link]
More updates are coming, so be alert! once it is done, the will be a naedox quality video. Note: I will sometimes find a problem that you guys have. Most of the time you will need to find the problem, and I will fix it.
The bus now has about 15 skins, including dealership skins, a blank skin, and a NJDOC skin.
will crash game in MP and also flatsville, in both sp and mp.

DON'T MODE WITHOUT PERMISSION !
Added flextyres ( Thx to Lifter for approve use mesh file)
added 3 more colors with own mirrors material ( get work mirrors in mp if each takes a different color)
****Please note, this is the updated version. I had posted an earlier version with errors. I was not aware that they would both be posted to the repo. This one is better!

Here is the school bus pack some of you have asked me about. I've changed it up a bit for some variety. Most are Blue Bird bodies but there is a Carpenter and a Thomas as well. They drive pretty realistically.Here is the lineup:
*1986 Blue Bird International S-1800 with an International Navistar 9.0L V8 Diesel and an Allison MT-643 transmission
*1990 Blue Bird International 3800 with an International Navistar DT360 Turbocharged 5.9L Inline six cylinder Diesel and an Allison AT-545 transmission
*1988 Blue Bird International S-1700 with an International Navistar 7.3L V8 Diesel and an Allison AT-545 transmission
*1996 Blue Bird GMC CV200 with a 366ci GM gasoline V8 engine and an Allison AT-545 transmission
*1985 Carpenter Chevrolet C/60 with an 8.2L Detroit Diesel Turbocharged V8 engine and an Allison AT-545 transmission
*1985 Blue Bird GMC 6000 with an 8.2L Detroit Diesel V8 engine and an Allison AT-545 transmission
*2007 Blue Bird International SBCV 3300 with an International Navistar DT466 7.6L Turbocharged Inline six cylinder Diesel and an Allison PTS 2500 transmission
*1979 Thomas International S-1700 with an International Harvester 345ci gasoline V8 engine and an Allison AT-545 transmission
This is a pretty large file and is very sound file intensive. There have been conflicts with the other school bus files with sounds not working properly or at all. These buses are not perfect and do not use any meshes that have not been seen already.
These buses do have seats and realistic parking brake sounds!
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.
- Detailed meshes
- Accurate kinematics
- Realistic lifting capacity (refer to the board on the crane!)
Start the engine and put the Crane in NEUTRAL!
- F1/F2: Rotate
- F3/F4: Trolley (use throttle to speed up if needed)
- F5/F6: Hook Up/Down (use throttle to speed up if needed)
- F7/F8: Extend/Retract Jib
- F9/F10: Raised-jib working angle
- Ctrl+F1/F2: Assemble/Disassemble
- Ctrl+F3/F4: Outriggers
- Ctrl+F5/F6: Legs
- Ctrl+F7/F8: Trailer wheel up/down
- Ctrl+F9/F10: Turn trailer wheel
- And as usual lock loads with "o"
You can also see the commands by pressing "T" ingame.
Basical procedure: Ctrl+F4 to fold outriggers; Ctrl+F6 once for legs, Ctrl+1 [NOT F1!] to display the baseplates, Ctrl+F6 again for legs. Then Ctrl+F2 to erect the crane automatically. Jib control is on F7/F8. Jib angle is on F9/F10. Retract automatically on Ctrl+F1.
- sputnik_1: meshes, node and beam, sounds, textures
- BigBoy, Craneman, Lifter, Inviteds, Donators: testing and help, thanks a lot!
It´s a package of german fire trucks of a fictional Fire Department from the fictional town Marktheim.
So that are a
-Command Vehicle (VW T3)
-Personal Carrier (VW T3)
-Tanker Truck (MB 1113 LAF)
-second Tanker Truck with water cannon (MB NG 80)
-FIRE ENGINE (MB NG 80)
-Equipment Vehicle (MB NG 80)
-Ladder Truck (MB NG 74)
and a smaller Fire Engine from a village near Marktheim that called "Oberdorf" (MB O'607D)
Pack now includes 2 P-boom versions.
This is the FLK-1500, a strong crawler crane and designed by AIN_002. The crane is not mapped but you can still skin some parts and change colors of meshes. I recommend downloading the skin pack from Rotexx. Uploading your own skin is allowed but please upload it as a skinzip.
F1/2 - Rotating the crane
F9/10/11/12 - Moving the tracks
You can view the rest of the commands in the T-screen
This pack includes 6 cranes
- FLK-1500 with 108m boom
- FLK-1500 with 108m P-boom
- FLK-1500 with 58m boom
- FLK-1500-NT with 108m boom
- FLK-1500-NT with 108m P-boom
- FLK-1500-NT with 58m boom
There might be coming more version of this crane like something with a jib but that will be a matter of time.
This zip also includes counterweight for the crane, which can simply be locked to the back of counterweight-arm with L!
Oh and before more people start crying about this: The counterweight can't be lifted off the ground when there is no heavy load in the hook! (which is logical and real!).
Hi there, this a 1984 Kenworth SAR designed and built only in Australia. It has a big 'n' burly Cummins inline 6, backed by an Eaton Fuller transmission with 12 forward gears to get the power where it's needed.
If you have the old version make sure to delete it from your packs folder
NOTE: This is an extensively modified version of Box5diesel's W900. I give massive thanks to him for the original truck and for allowing me to modify it.
There are several different trucks in the pack, however, to save space they all share the same mesh so you can only spawn one of each type at a time, otherwise the materials will collide.
I included the photoshop file in the pack as well, so it easier to make custom skins.
If you find any problems feel free to send me a private message.

This is the trailer I started a ways back its not done but I am not continuing with it because I am working on something else. I also lost the original unwrap so I have to redo that and really don't wanna redo that. So I figured I would share at least what I have done if some whats to fix/mod what ever do so freely.
Only author is me.
Known problems-handle mesh twitch's, suspension is really stiff, ties are to tight
ZIL-135 BM-27 Uragan 9P140 launch vehicle and ZIL-135 bare chassis version
- if you downloaded before 2011. december 21. 19:00 GMT (or anytime before this note appearing) please REDOWNLOAD. Otherwise you either won't have the fifth wheel version at all, or the one with bugged wheels. Sorry for the inconvenience.
- fifth wheel version included. Keep in mind though, that most semi trailers might not fit it because of it's different position compared to normal semi tractors.
- the tires and rims are separate objects now, hence the rims won't flex anymore.
- custom engine sound. Sampled from actual Zil-135 sounds.
- some more skins.
i guess i can say merry x-mas now...
- normal mapping
- detailed exterior, flexbody, damage textures
- 8x8 drive with a unique wheel and steering layout
- good off-road capability, and no irrealistic performance
- alternate skin selection does not show up the first time you select it, only second time. Must be a RoR caching issue.
- when alternate skin is selected, material flare bindings (lights) do not work. This is confirmed to be a problem with the *.skin system.
This is my "LÃ¶schgruppenfahrzeug 16/12" in english a Fire Engine.
You can open the doors of the cabin and the equipment structure with the F1 to F10 key.
In the back of the truck is a hose reel that you should load up.
So you can move the holder up and down with Ctrl+F1 and Ctrl+F2 and you can change the angle of the hose reel (Ctrl+F3 and Ctrl+F4) so its a little bit easier to hook it up (with "O")
Credits: The truck is copletely made by me (the Fire Extinguisher in the cabin is from the Sketchup Gallery and the wheel texture from RoR)
Hier ist mein LÃ¶schgruppenfahrzeig 16/12 (LF 16/12)
Man kann die TÃ¼ren der Kabine sowie des Aufbaus mit den Tasten F1-F10 Ã¶ffnen.
Die Schlauchhaspel hinter dem Auto kann man anhÃ¤ngen (mit der Taste "O")
dazu kann man die Halterung mit Strg+F1 oder Strg+F2 Hoch und Runter Bewegen.
Den Winkel der Schlauchhaspel kann man mit Strg+F3 und Strg+F4 Ã¤ndern.

This is a fire engine from the fire department Hamburg.
The Original was build from 1994/1995 by Mercedes Benz and Ziegler.
I used the tips from the older fire engines to work over the meshes so that there d´ont be any errors...i hope.
You can open the command list with the button "T" an hook on the hose reel with button "O"
The node/beam chassis and the meshes are build by me.
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.
All functions work by press once functionality, also winches, so when you press the extend button once, the winch will keep extending, until you press again.
