A late happy easter everyone!
I'd like to present a Road Vehicle GRF I've been working on since a couple of weeks: A set of off-road trucks, that fill in the gap between normal road vehicles and heavy hauling vehicles.Outline
SUV (Supplement Unsurfaced Road Vehicle Set) supplies your OTTD game with a set of small and weak, yet multi-featured trucks (and SUVs ...), which can run on various Road Types. This makes the vehicles of this set the all-rounders you need on your strife to create a vast web of, separated, road networks.Requirements
This set needs NRT / RATT
to work, like, at all.
Other than that, it is recommended to use this set together with GRFs that provide unsurfaced or hauling Road Types.
(i.e. andythenorth's Road Hog
or my humble Country Roads
. You may also try Unspooled
for a vast on-road experience.)Content
The trucks (and SUVs...) provided by this set include only vehicles made by namely manufactures of the more or less eastern parts of Germany, formerly German Democratic republic, as well as former Czechoslovakia and former Soviet Union.
The vehicles (will) span, effectively, a time frame from the 1930s to the 2000s. However, as horse carts are (will be) included as well, this set can be used since the pre-industrial time.
For most parts, the vehicles are realistic in power, capacity, 'life-span' etc.; however, some things can be configured via parameters to adapt to other, unrealistic, game styles, as well.
The up to now available vehicles are ...

The featured types of vehicles are ...Multifunctional Cars (a set of 'mufu's)
These tiny cars were designed to be used on industrial complexes, conveying small bits of cargoes around the site. However, since they are full-featured 4X4 cars, they can be used on unsurfaced tracks as well.Supports all kinds of Road Types!
Can be easily refitted to every cargo available! (excluding long cargo like wood which would need some semi-trailer-fication, which was IRL available but not in this set, anyway, but hey, you've got your heavier hauling rigs...)
Cheap to buy, cheap to run, thus light in transportability!SUVs ('normal' cars)
These cars are 'normal' Street runners, maybe even slightly adapted to unsurfaced roads. Though the later ones have full 4X4 ability and can run through the mud, as well. Typically separate passenger and express freight cars are being included. Purposed to run through small towns and villages spreading passengers, mail and goods. Later models (that's SUVs) can run on any unsurfaced road, as well, some models (that's without all wheel traction) only on surfaced roads.Supports up to all kinds of Road Types!
Providing seats for about 3 passengers! (and a driver...)
Cheap and fast!Horse carts
There are (will be) horse carts available for the slow side of life. Coming in three sizes, they will be drawing your carts through all terrains.Supports all kinds of Road Types, except Motorways! (for no droppings shall put the traffic safety at risk...)
Transports at least some cargo!
Cheap and slow!Tractors
Features small to heavy tractors that can be used from industrial sites to agriculture and forestry.Can run on any surface, except Motorways! (for traffic reasons...)
Heaves up to three trailers filled with any of your precious cargoes!
Not cheap, yet slow!Small Trucks (and buses...)
A vast set of small trucks that can even bring your passengers to the outermost areas of any map. Most come in separated truck and bus form type, the latter, however, limited in industrial usability.Can run on any Road Type!
Heaves and hauls up to all kind of cargoes!
Not expensive, but efficient!Big Trucks (or, rather big trucks...)
A variety of trucks designed to transport any sorts of industrial cargo. It even hauls oversized cargo on low-boy trailers, which non of the above types will be able to.May run on any Road Type! (though yet has to been seen on motorways...)
Heaves and hauls all kinds of cargoes except PAX!
Supports a moderate amount of capacity!Heavy howling vehicles (eh, hauling that is)
A set of dexter dogs, I mean, a set of tractor trucks, that may haul unreasonable heavy amounts of cargo, but only on heavy hauling tracks, the only one suited for them howling racks.Only allowed to run on HAUL-able roads!
Expensive, but hauls heavy amounts of cargo!
Does not rime!Special FeaturesDiverse Cargo Graphics for up to FIRS 3
Full 2X-Zoom Graphics
Vehicle Performance adapts to Road Surface
Vehicle Upgrades (if bought new)

Thanks are directed to andythenorth, supermop and McZapkie, whose GRFs (including their NML source...) inspired me a lot! Plus, a thanks to Richard Wheeler, whose Pixel Tool I excessively used creating the vehicle sprites.

you find a version for vanilla OpenTTD)Changelog
V.0.1................all Multicars and 'SUVs', as well as early tractors included. A preview of tracked tractors included.
V.0.2................new cars, Unimogs, as well as all light trucks, vans and buses. Japanese translation included.Known IssuesWhen neither CountryRoads or Unspooled GRFs are loaded, unused Road Type entries will be in the Road Build Menu.
Tracked tractors with their trailers miss 2x-Zoom graphics as well as proper cargo graphics.
1x-Zoom graphics looking either odd or uglyFeedback wanted!
