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.
This is just a small amphibious ATV made in the 1970's. It's by far my best creation yet!
Fully independent suspension, with moving suspension meshes. (Except on the versions without suspension)
Working control sticks.
Realistic top speed and handling.
6 versions! (Namely. Stock, Springer, Race, Crawler, Touchobut Special, and The McKay Racer)
My first fully meshed vehicle.
Me (DODGE charger) - Base vehicle and the majority of the work on this
Creak - Engine and help with floatation
Touchobut - Improvements on crawling performance (Crawler version)
Off-Roader - Request for this to be made, specs, and engine sounds
Nightmare80 - Dashboard texture
Included in the pack are 13 versions, 3 Stock Carts, 3 Offroad Carts, 3 Racing Carts,1 Driving Range Cart, 1 Supra Cart, 1 Hummer HX Cart, and 1 Apocalyptic themed golf cart.
All carts are fully meshed, collidable, have fully functioning interiors with gauges and steering wheels, adjustable hitches, and 4 interior cameras plus some other things I may have forgotten to mention.
All components of these carts are done completely by me.
Different carts can be selected upon spawning via the selection system (drop down on bottom of spawn menu).
0.36 does not work(confirmed by mywolfman)
0.37 works (confirmed by me)
0.38 works (confirmed by me)
0.39 works (confirmed by PsychoDog)
0.40 does not work (confirmed by Mythbuster)
This is the final and last version of Nissan 350Z for Rigs of Rods.
Even if the original submesh model of this car is more than 2 years old its still a headturner!
Since then I edited the nearly everyday to make it look, sound and feel like its real counterpart.
Here are the most important notes:
- the body and suspension is a RoR classic setup made out of a nodes, beams and a submesh
- the engine is tuned to behave like the original one
- the transmission should be shifted manually and has real gear ratios
- the car can easely go to 250 km/h
- the suspension is set up for both drifting and highspeed stability
- the sounds are carefully collected and mixed so can get that good V6 sound in your ear
- i havnt include a tire sound. it got annoying after a while
- there is also a roadster/ convertible version in the file
- and many more things...
I havnt a specific forum tread for this car. If you have questions or want to mod the please PM me.
Unimog U5000 (Beta)
Philzilla and I have been working on the Moggy for a while and its ready for a beta release. The mesh is accurate to its real life counter part. Although the paint job and back end is completely custom.
The real one is used for: "Dakar", "Truck trials" and "Rallye" the price tag is about $80,000 USD (good thing we have simulators :P) I will let the Pictures do the rest of the talking. I made the detailed mesh and Node and beam chassis and Philzilla made the awesome "Dakar" suspension and some of the chassis for it.
Extremely detailed 3d mesh
High resolution texture
Custom paint job
It does have its bugs
missing steering wheel,
few inverted faces and
the front axle does not move when it terns
Feel free to make skins or mods for the Unimog as long as you give credit.
