RoR 0.22: Let there be light!

Finaly a new version. This one features:
  • Lights! Several trucks now have functional lights. Press "N" to activate. No night mode yet, but nice anyway...
  • A new interesting truck: a Scania truck carrier. With this one you can do the same thing as the carrier trailer, but with a better framerate. Use F1/F2 for the ramp. There is also a winch with "O".
  • Several bug fixes: the character can walk on the roads, etc. Press "space" to make him jump over obstacles.
I am also still searching for an Ogre3D-ready animated character that looks like a trucker. If you are a good modeler and know how to make an animated character, you can help me. Reuse of an existing work is also welcome, as long as it is legal. No money, only fame. To contact me about this, send me a PM on the Ogre3D.org forum.

Enjoy!

kicke whit that light
it works great
only on my pc is the frame rate very low
i have only problem whit the wrecker

i hat the wrecker on the mountain and a orther truck on the hook a let the hook free
the orther truck rold in the water and my engine quit whit making the engine sound. i press enter and than agine to get in the truck and the sound is back. it was only the sound that a missed but evrything works.

there is one problem i can't get my trucks out of the water. can you make a kind of crane to do that ( i think that i easier that make one truck driveble in the water and a crane is also fun to use)

If your engine quits you can press and hold the 's' key to restart the engine (put gear in 'N' first though)

By the way, a bug ( I think)
whenever I change the camera view to the one which faces the rear-end of the truck, the textures will disappear competely for a second (ie goes to skeleton view), then goes back to normal. This happens with a number of the trucks I tried.

Werner: thanks for the link, great resource!
For the bugs, I know about most of them, I play too with RoR! I try to fix them when I can... There is also a big contact/activation problem, and the collision system is imperfect.
For the water: just wait for the boats! ;-)(but I have first to implement faster water effect modes: the current one is nice but too slow for most GPUs)
