Cool videos

I found some cool Rigs of Rods videos posted by people on Google video.
A breathtaking rock crawling sequence:


And some stunts by a guy that has clearly tampered with his engine power settings!


Thanks to the original posters!

Check out also this guy that plays too much with RoR ;-)

Version 0.29 is under construction, but don't expect a release too soon.

Cheers!

You have to increase engine torque, the third number in the engine line, and maybe he had also fiddled with the gear ratios. Then, using a good analog joystick also helps, to have a precise control on the throtling of the monster engine.

Hey guys, I'm the one that made the second video. God I love Rigs of Rods as you can tell :) There were multiple features that I fiddled with to get the power down, but I've found that for general fun just set the torque to 99999.0. You should be able to do close to the stuff that I did in the vid. Enjoy!

If you look closely I am actually going up it backword using the rear steer. Makes life alot easyer as the rear articualtes more then the front.

Sometimes improvements can not be seen in a screenshot, like fixing a bug, or enhancing joystick configuration or aerodynamics!

Talking about all these trucks, can we have one offroad 4x4 textured? And maybe a gear case for 4wd or 2wd and Hi/Lo? :)
This should get a bunch of people over to this sim from screamer and open up a lot of oportunities. :)

Thanks,
Btw, I love this sim, and check this site every day for updates just to read whats new in it or the ideas you have.

Hi,
I've tried the game today and was amazed. Finally someone made game based on such model. Excelent! I spent several hours playing and researching the models in the editor.

But the damage modelling still lacks true falling apart. For example, if you damage a wing, not all the links break, and some triangles oscillate freely, and the wing looks like made of fabric.

Can you release the new crane, police car, etc before the next release? I'm really excited about this game. I constantly check for new versions. I'm aware that the improvements takes time, but you could release the cars till then.

I matured 0.29 a lot this week end. Still some rough edges to cut and I think it will be released within a week.

also, i have an idea for the light efects: reuse most of the code for the flashing beacons. also, you could add a tag like forwardcommands, only like siren or somthing, that replaces the normal horn with the siren.
