mayday i would like to make a request i love your new trucks and would like some different trucks from earlier periods so would you like to try something like this
Image

These trucks often towed a 4 wheel trailer, if u added a bulk body and a box body, you could have all load types with 3 trucks and maybe 3 trailers.
Trucks like this were mainly used in the 1950s and 60s had a maximum weight of 32 tons with trailer and load.
If u had 120bhp engine you were "king of the road" :lol:

If you feel like trying it and want more infomation let me know and i will do what i can

If you don't then no problem you have already improved my games so much :D

just let me know if you dont want to do them and i will put up a request in the main section thanks 8)

a few more picks
A very nice flat bed

only a 4 wheeler but shows a sheeted load (for goods etc maybe)

whilst american trucks would be cool you would probably be looking at another tractor unit for the trailers already here but by adding some older trucks we could have better looking trucks earlyer in the game

That said.
Why not look for some 1940s american tucks?
although the earliest truck in the game is so small you couldn't tell if u did mod it :lol:
There is still room for improvement with the second set of trucks mayday may not want to do more trucks but it may be worth asking
.A 1940s conventional (peterbilt maybe) with twin stacks would look very cool

this one is a little later but very similar and has the twin stacks
Image
Found in less than a minute, google is cool 8)
looks great but doin a delivery in London would be a nightmare.
Still, being able to cook a meal and maybe play on your PC before getting into your superwide bunk all without leaving your truck would make it worth it. :lol:
here we go not sure but this is 50s at least and maybe 40s peterbilt

the us-truck has a graphic-issue so i can´t release it yet. gonna fix this. sooner or later :wink:

yeah i have the dhl and coca-cola trucks and the ikarus buses. Look great in the game i love train building but i love using the trucks even more when they look that good i dont think i have the vario but i have over 850 vehicles in the game so it is hard to know for sure :lol:

Look forward to seeing the US truck once its done
Also is it possible to make your trucks compatable with maydays?
so i could pull maydays traiers with your truck or visa versa.
or having the origional trucks pull your DHL trailer for example.
Probably not but if it is possible it would be cool. 8)

yes go on, mayday. so i can stop my project.

@hobgoblin
it could be done.. 8)
problem is..: there's a new truck coming everyday from mayday so i can't keep up the compatibiliy-list. you have to make that on your own. there are other projects in my list as well.
furthermore in the next weeks i have another project (a new homepage for the company i work for) launched.

there's a slight chance that i stop all projects once i start the homepage. could be a couple of months..

How do they look on the slopes / steep slopes?

Because judging the dark sides you are using the VC to make the .png files; and they dont have the steep slopes sprites.

they dig into the hill.

they have the same issues as if you did a tram or narrow guage in MSTS2Lomo. even the regular hills have the lean.
