Update: download here
- Ramp opens further (so you can drive a small car up the ramp)
- Ties to hold the load in place
- in now imports commands like a trailer. Park near rear bumper and use F9-F12 to control the ramp.
Seen it in the request forum: a container with retractable legs and a modified Ampliroll to transport it.
The truck is a bit longer, removed the hook, added ties and a trailer hitch.
The container imports-commands from the truck: F1/F2 to retract/extend the legs, F3/F4 to lower/raise the container (makes legs shorter/longer)
There is also a 2nd load in the zip-file: a tank in a frame (sort of) Same commands as the trailer, but it can also be picked up by the Ampliroll. F5/F6 to retract/extend the hook
- The legs will collapse if you make the containers too heavy.
- Using existing textures from semi, ampliroll, acontainer and aflatbed. Thats why only the help is in the material file.
Volvo Cement Truck.
The truck is build from pictures and some imagination, but I measured a real truck to get the size a bit realistic.
The drum is hanging on only 2 nodes, and it rotates by itself.
It has some custom props: mirrors, exhaust, antenna, truckhorn and those side-guard-thing between the wheels.
Original texture is included, which has sharper edges and is easier to make another color.
Feel free to modify etc., also feel free to use the props but do not forget their textures and material.
Box5Diesel's Duece and a half (more like a 5 ton, but who's counting, lol)
This thing is a jack of all trades, crawling, climbing, towing, offroad, transport, u name it. I've made it to the top of the rock course with it, which took some tries, but its doable for sure. It also likes to climb walls, lol. The video attached shows that pretty well. I hope yall get addicted to it like I have, and multiplayer starts to swarm with it, lol. Anyway, if u have any comments feel free to dicuss them in the heavy trucks showroom thread for this release.
The hitch is setup for gooseneck now, but its also got a bumper pull attached, all u need to do is change node 87 and 88 from "h" to "n" or vice versa in the truck file (I made a small section for each node to help make it easier to find in the file), you can choose either one to be "h" for which hitch u want to use at a given time.
The exhaust stack is not a mesh, so it does break if u roll on it heavy, but im hoping to learn mesh soon to have a nice axle, stack, and suspension mesh mod for this.
Daf truck with attached ampliroll trailer.
They are 1 model (like Nitro's Truck&Trailer combo) and it spawns like this from the truckshop. You can't detach the trailer from the truck.
This was just made for the fun of it, but I uploaded it here anyway. Closest thing I could think of to get an ampliroll trailer.
F1/F2 for the arm, and F3/F4 to tighten the ties even more. (they pull the load tight, but not enough to keep the container on the truck. Load container, secrure it, press F4 to keep it from moving around)
Volvo FL12 8wd truck with ampliroll hook, version 2.
Some nodes and beams were added to the arms to make them more stable. There were some reports of it falling over the right, which I hope is fixed now.
Thanks to those who tested it.
Modified from the cement truck (it was the right size for a standard ampliroll container): it has a new unique ID, new textures, 2 new props (exhaust and hook) and it is lifted a bit for better offroading.
This is my upgraded daf 4x6 semi. Changes from the previous version are
- it's shorter
- it has all the new features for 0.33 (flares and stuff)
- I tweaked the engine and gearbox a bit
- I added a new exhaust
