My entry for the "Build A Crawler Contest". Has about 44" tires.
*Independent rear wheel steering
*Adjustable limiting straps (front and back) that can be used to lower the body/center of gravity
*Helper bar- can lift vehicle when stuck on a ledge
*Roll recovery system
Introducing the fix version of the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
Been in progress for about 10 months
This is a Fixed version for the newest version of RoR. There is no longer a selectable skin. Until there is a new system of selectable skins its the Jeep Green.
The suspension is also updated and is acting more realisticly
+Animated steering wheel
+Animated Shifter(manual transmission)
+Animated locker shifter
+Animated parking brake
+Animated Locker on Rim
+Animated gauges(Speed,Tacho, and gas(it just goes down slowly))
+Choosable Skin color
Meshs, N/B, and prop placing - MICRACER
Suspension, N/B tuning, Weight tuning, engine tuning - LIFTER
(Thank you for all your help)
This is my crawler. It crawls stuff. Also my first ever working N/B. I know, it has no mesh, the N/B isn't perfect, it rolls over if you turn over 20mph blablablabla. If you don't like bare N/B chassis', then don't download and post a 1 star rating because it doesn't have a billion poly mesh and complicated crash physics.
UPDATE: I've been working on a variation of my own and it's complete, or close enough. It is fully submeshed and will contact with other vehicles(that must to be contactable). It's sides and tail can fold down. The rear rollcage can be lifted using Ctrl+F4/Ctrl+F6. It has ties in the back so you can drive an vehicle into it. Unfortunately all the stuff I added makes it too "tippy" to carry a vehicle into water anymore but driving on land is fine. Also has a trailer hitch that can be completely folded away if you're not going to use it. All controls are listed in-game. Have fun.
This is an Tatra 813 pack I modified from Pricordes original versions and added "Wheels2" to all of the models so you can inflate/deflate the tires. Also updated to work properly in the latest RoRs release as it was having texture issues before. Use [ to deflate and ] to inflate the tires. This is not as easy on your system as the originals were. They were only about 1300 beams before, now each has over 2800 to properly simulate the wheels.
NOTE: You will need to enable advanced wheels in the configurator under the "CPU" tab to enable "Wheels2" in versions older than 0.38.33.
Please note the credits for the crane go josh (1239) who made the original.
This truck performs really well on slow technical offroad terrain. Theres alot of rear articulation to make for some fun crawling. It's fairly stable at high speeds, and also drift really well on dirt in 8th gear or so.
Please remember its built for slow offroad driving mostly, so I had to sacrifice some strength in the steering/suspension to get the good articulation and twist in the axles for somewhat realistic crawling.
It has emmisive lights, I wanted to leave flares off of it.
Custom meshes include, Side steps, bed rails, Mirrors, hitch, axles.
Most my testing was done in 1st gear going through offroad terrain, thats what its built for so don't expect a high speed offroad run to hold up.
It was all created by me and its not 100percent done. I have just decided that i am going to move onto bigger and better things. I am starting to use AC3D and this was created with both AC3D and sketchup.
Anyways instead of collecting dust i decided i would release it.
-There are two version a Rotational version and a non-rotational version.
I built this crawler for the build a crawler contest. I gave it high ground clearance, low center of gravity(lots of low nodes), four wheel steering, and good size tires. Put it all together, and you have a crawler that performs flawlessly. This is the best four tired crawler that i have driven. THIS THING WILL GO ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP OF THE ASPEN ROCK WALL, there is some skill required though.
F1-F2 = rear steering
felt like doing another crawler, and had an idea to try out full independant suspension, so i made up a name and designed my own crawler just for fun. it may look a bit weird but it is extremely capable, definantly better then anything ive done before
doors and tail gate open
damage textures, spec textures
working suspension parts
working dash and steering wheel
material flares (good looking lights)
YOU NEED TO LOCK THE DIFFS! I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH, IF YOU DONT THE WHOLE THING WILL NOT PERFORM VERY WELL. PRESS 'W' TO LOCK THE DIFFS, IF THIS DOES NOT WORK THEN YOU NEED TO GET THE EDITED KEY MAP.
please post in the thread with any suggestions or improvments you may have, or if you dont like it, tell me why
This is a great crawling rig for off-road maps, its not made for jumping or high speed but damn it crawls great!
Drop the "sterlingcrawler.zip" in your packs folder. You MUST have Box5Diesel's original firetruck sterling pack!
I can't thank Box5 enough for the help and support he has given me with this project,
he even let me use the flatbed before he even released it along with dieselfuelonly
who helped test the truck too, thanks a bunch guys!
I hope you enjoy this rig, I'm pretty proud of it!
