This is a very short guide that wil introduce newbies to Rigs of Rods. I made this since the wiki is getting old and sometimes it's hard to understand. This is a PDF File. So download the ZIP and open the PDF with whatever PDF Viewer you have.
Hope it was helpfull
It's quite big since it's has images to explain stuff better
This is a very comprehensive mapping of the ror controls to the PS3 controller. I have spent a lot of time on this and it should work with the latest version. See the included picture, for the actual controls.
*to enable your ps3 controller to work with ror and your computer, follow a dodgy tutorial at your own risk!*
~Are you a stubborn 'murrican?
~Are you tired of looking at the little yellow numbers on the default speedometer to tell how fast you are going?
Have no fear, the 'US customary system' speedometer is here!
Gone are the days of having to strain your eyes to see those tiny numbers. You could potentially save hundreds in eye doctor and chiropractor visits just by using this mod!*
This is just a simple mod of the default speedometer to indicate Miles Per Hour rather than Kilometers Per Hour. It is broken up into divisions of 5mph and measures up to 90mph before the needle is set to stop.
I whipped this up really quickly this morning, so it is not perfect, the measurements for 5mph-35-mph are about 1.5mph above what they should indicate. I may fix it in the future. Otherwise it is very accurate.
Just plop speedo.dds into textures.zip (found in the resources folder of your RoR directory).
- meshes made with great care and attention to detail
- animated suspension (includes leaf springs and shocks)
- animated steering link
- animated drive shafts (no they dont rotate. just flex with the suspension)
- detailed meshwheels and rims
- custom sounds (includes jeep starter and engine sounds and a custom crash sound: warning these are 'eh' in terms of quality. i know no one thats owns a jeep. and had to record off the internet. google video FTW!)
somwhat of an interior (made to look good from drivers perspective. and from outside looking into the windows) which includes
- working dashboard gauges
- working steering wheel ( yes its a new steering wheel in an old jeep. i like it better then the old ones)
- custom jeep seats
- flares (headlights, brake lights, blinkers and reverse lights)
- comes with all the 0.36 goodies including
- specular textures (real world reflections)
- damage texture
- antena bounces around and bends wile driving.
These are just some road textures that I made a while back and thought you guys would like to have them.
Update: The preview images didn't change because I couldn't remove the ones that we're already there. But with the update I have:
- Improved realism of the road lines. Thanks to Al T. for suggesting I improve them.
- Added a gravel shoulder
- Made all textures 4x higher resolution
- Removed double yellow lined version, I thought it was quite ugly
This is a collection of ten mud textures that I created. Each one has no "cut-off" edges, so you do not have to worry about deleting parts. Each one is the exact same color. Feel free to adapt them to what looks good on your vehicle. A .psd is included for whatever reason you see fit.
Please read the README
P.S. for the P.S. users: Use the normal mode and adjust the opacity of each layer. It will turn out like this. I also recommend adding a little noise for a tire.
Simply replace the old "input" file with this one.
It will be located in Libraries>documents>Rigs of Rods 0.38>Config
Finally open rorconfig and disable forced feedback.
For those of you who may need guidance with motioninjoy setup, here ya go!
There has been a problem with ror crashing upon entering a vehicle. If you have this problem please disable your forced feedback in the rorconfig.
Please be aware that this key map is for people who wish to use their Playstation 3 controllers by utilizing the MotioninJoy software. It is also designed to be used with the default "PS3" profile setting within MotioninJoy.
UPDATE 1.1: This is the revised controller for auto and manual transmissions. Camera issues were also resolved in which the camera rotated a different speed than the character.
UPDATE 1.2: Minor adjustment to camera control button configuration.
UPDATE 1.21: Clutch for manual transmission added into the controller description(No download necessary).
Note: If anyone can and would like to help, I am having trouble finding a way to remove the artificial steering centering. This causes the steering wheel to return slowly, which may work for keyboard users, but makes joystick steering very difficult at high speeds. Please don't hesitate to PM me and any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Guys please consult with me before placing blame. I provide support to people who need help getting this working correctly. Responses in the comments such as "sort it out" when YOU'RE the 1 making installation mistakes or having problems makes me not want to help you.
These are skins for the KME Predator.
The Predator is not my truck but I created the Skins for the truck.
These skins are Pennsylvania fire companies except for the all black which is Norfolk MA, and the South Park Show truck.
This pack contains:
--British Rail Class 58 train, (truck file by Miura, mesh by tommylommykins)
--Track on NSH, contained in new NSH .terrn file (Miura)
--Track on flatmap V10.0, in new flatmap .terrn file (tommylommykins). This flatmap pack is required for the track to work -> http://repository.rigsofrods.com/fil...MapFull32x.zip

Hi all. This is my first ever mod. It is a beacon for your trucks/cars/planes/whatnots. YOU MUST HAVE THE EDITORIZOR DOWNLOADED. Be sure to read the pleasereadme.txt file enclosed. This is only a beacon. It does not include the modded Accord. The readme will tell you most things you need to know, but reading the flares and beacons sections in the RoR book is a must.
THANKS AND HAVE FUN!!
Here is the first train for the new trolley line in Penguinville:
The Chicago North Shore & Milwaukee Electroliner interurban trolley.
Controls are simple, follow the instructions in the description.
Train is scratch build be me, sounds are not that good, might be updated later.
These are an update to Aperion's logs he made back in 2007. These are uploaded with permission.New: New Texture, with a bark texture (not debarked) New Weight (2T, 5T, 10T) DOES NOT OVERWRITE OLD LOGS.
Bus Infrastructure Pack by Redeye
for Rigs of Rods
This pack contains the following objects:
- "rey_bs_bigstop": Large, modern bus stop with platform (or bus bulb) and fancy shelter
- "rey_bs_depot": Garage for two buses (or other vehicles). Can be arranged side by side to make a larger stack. Should also work as a warehouse or similiar structure.
- "rey_bs_shelter1": Roadside shelter, rugged concrete, typical of older urban bus stops
- "rey_bs_shelter2": Roadside shelter, modern
- "rey_bs_shelter3": Roadside shelter, brick, somewhat old-fashioned and rural
- "rey_bs_sign_blue": Blue bus stop sign (nothing too fancy here)
- "rey_bs_sign_white": White bus stop sign (neither)
1. Place the files into your "resources/meshes" folder in your Rigs of Rods installation directory. (Or into your particular preferred map's "terrains/my_particular_preferred_map" directory. It really doesn't matter that much.)
2. Rig up the terrain editor truck with the object names above.
3. Scatter them around your map.
Assuming you have a _rough_ idea of what you're doing ...
... all the included objects bear coloured linings (somewhat black-ish by default) that can be customized according to your needs (or rather, according to the needs of the fictional transit company you may have in mind). To change the colour, open the ".material"-file of the according object, find the material that ends with "..._col", and change the "ambient" value to reflect your desired colour. Colour data is in RGB values.
You may distribute these objects with your map provided you credit me as their creator.
This is an American Pride skin I made for the Kenworth T600.
Credits for the truck go to: HemiBoy95
This replaces the first truck, just download skin, go into the T600 folder find and remove the T600body_1.dds and also T600body_1_s.dds and make a copy of them, then just simply place the new skin into the folder and play..Have Fun! (sorry for no picture, this is my first upload, and im trying to figure out how to get a screen shot)
This is my first upload.
A fixed version of the Komatsu someone build for a long while, it was made by Solid_Granite, but i dont know if he wants some perms?!
I fixed the problem with the front axle the wheelbounce and the size, also the mass and power.
Know bugs are the front suspension is too soft an dthe tires need more numrays and they are to soft.
I hope youll like it, if there are any bugs pls tell me.
For Solid_Granite: Thanks for this wonderful dumptruck, can you help me with the singleplayer spawnposition?
How to install: Extract the files into your data trucks.
How to drive: Dont turn faster than 40kph, cuz of the suspension.
Max. speed is over 100kph
Dont drive to fast over hills, cuz of the soft tires
I think all credits goes to Solid_Granite. If someone wants to help me pls send your fixes first(email in profile).
It is the basic monorail, but i changed it to a better and more effective way... it goes about 45km/h the whole track without need to brake, except you go forward.
please use gear 1 for driving from the second station to the start-station.
changed it to a more stable monorail, got now some middle-wheels and uses constant speed to hold on rail.
dont know if someone wants to change it, but if theres a need to, make it better than myself
An updated version of Mr X's Peel P50, I have added sounds, touched up some textures, packed the whole bonus pack, released shortly after the original release, together in this file. There are 2 police cars, both have their own custom sirens.
The SFPD cop car I made is included in the pack, as well as the Crane version with a custom paintjob.
The race versions have a 9 HP pull-cord ignition Go-Kart engine making it fast enough to add a lot of oomph to the small car.
The normal road versions (including police, crane and tank) have a 50cc Vespa engine, while the starter sound is from my father's BMW F650 GS motorcycle.
Credits go to
Mr X for the vehicle
Zipppy (me) for sounds and texture touch ups
McReed for the tank version
Aivar for the camera fix
*****NOTE: Most features will not work in 0.35, only the camera fix and texture updates will.*****
If a previous version is installed, please remove it, as this may conflict.
Installation on 0.36 and above, is by saving the .zip archive to "My Documents/Rigs of Rods/packs"
Installation on 0.35 is by either extracting the files to "Rigs of Rods 0.35/data/trucks" or by saving the archive to "Rigs of Rods 0.35/packs"
The images taken had a lighting bloom mod active, in case anyone wonders.
f1 and f2 for the front. F3 and F4 for the rear. It has commands and shocks so it's a much smoother ride and helps with the bouncing! I painted the skin (and pain stakingly did a pinstriping), did up some custom rims (wheelfaces), tinted the windows and put a mural on the front
CREDITS GO TO:
Bonehead: for the great original
Phillzilla: for making the back-end setup and answerin all my questions, and everything else
Trampus9: For making the UID and beta testing
Tampa: for Beta testing and making sure it works
THIS HAS IT'S OWN UID so it will not over write anything!
There is one beam that breaks if you contract (lower) the front commands to fast, other than that there seems to be nothing wrong with it. But you really have to lay it out hard to break it.
Would love to heat what you think! http://forum.rigsofrods.com/index.php?topic=20258.0 I think
These are my original files pertaining to the "squished wheel" RoR logo design. I have included two Adobe Illustrator (.ai) files, several PNGs of various forms of the logo, a couple GIFs for the website layout, a text file with a basic license agreement, and an offline archive of part of the original logos forum post. I hope you make good use of these files!
These are some new meshes/textures for the standard checkpoints. I tried to keep the essence of the old one while adding a few of my own ideas. They are exactly the same size as the originals and so can be drop-in replacements for the standard checkpoints RoR ships with.
Read the readme for installation instructions.
I give you permission to do whatever you want with them.
