RoR 0.27

Finally the long awaited 0.27 is here. Vacations, summer heat, and other professionnal and familial activities have slowed down a bit development.

The new stuff:
  • Flashing lights on some trucks! Use the key 'M' to switch them on. (on AZERTY keyboards, use the key at the right of the 'N' key)
  • Seats in the trucks, and other accessories (air intake, spare wheels)
  • New bridges. They are fragile, if you overload them, they will break down!
  • The big ship in Helens has been upgraded, now you can board in it.
  • Now you can select among more than 12 trucks
  • Editor improvements, with rods edition capabilities. You can also load the loads (sic). Not finished yet, lots of work to do to finish it.
  • I included the cool rock crawling course and vehicle contributed by theafro. The course and vehicle are preliminary, and will be certainly improved. Test your nerves and try to go as high as possible with the Rockeater vehicle on the artificial trial course in the Aspen terrain.
