[REL] US Semi Trucks Pack

Post by Tattoo » 13 Nov 2011 21:35

18 Wheel of Steel US semi trucks converted for Locomotion.

These 9 trucks are the first set of trucks for this pack. There are many many more to do. These were done with the truck and trailers together because they look better this way. I might do some separate at a later date. For now I'm working on combined tractor-trailers and will update this pack when more are done. I'm also working on some European trucks for this as well. Them will come next.

INFO:

Mack CH613 Day Cab 4x2 + 2 28' Dryvan Pups

Cargo - Goods
Amount - 10 crates per trailer

To install: Extract to objdata folder. There are 9 truck.dats and one sound.dat

Tractor-Trailers created by pete379jp
Wheels created by Ventures87
UPS truck skin by trikz
Trailer skins redone by Tattoo
Metal textures from CGTextures

Credit to Strongbow in helping me to make them look as good as they do.

Please let me know what ya think.

Woow ! As always they really look great mate ! Only one thing about them...why such a small amount of cargo ? Those trucks can carry much more then that...Keep up the good work for now, and I'll convert a few (for personal use) in my NAM-Games !

Regards,

Erik

Not really. The payload for these double trailers is 33,935 lbs and loaded weight is 65,100 lbs which is around 33 tons total. This info is from the "The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Comprehensive Truck Size and Weight Study".

Here's the link to it. http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/reports/tswstud ... apter3.pdf

So the numbers are actually correct. I have them a little higher than what's in the report. I thought they'd haul more too but obviously not. And the companies of these trucks only carry light weight packages here in the US as from what info I found on them. I wanted to put them at 15 tons per trailer but the total weight would be too high then. There is an 80,000 lb limit here in the US so if it was 15 per trailer plus the curb weight which is 14 tons, that would be 44 tons which is overweight here in the US.

Thanks for the compliments on them. I hoped they'd go over well. I put a lot of work into them. But I forgot to include Strongbow in the credits above for his help in making them look good. I did put him in the readme.txt tho. I'll add it now. Thanks again Strongbow. You were a great help with these.

Except one goods in Loco only weighs 1/2 ton, so you can have 20 goods and still be within weight restrictions. Also, shouldn't UPS and FedEx ship mail?

No it doesn't. The default truck carries 15 tons of food or goods. When it's goods, it's only 15 crates. Look at the screen shot. So how do you figure it's only a 1/2 ton? It would be nice if that were true but unfortunately, it isn't.

Yes the FedEx and UPS trucks do carry mail but these trucks don't deliver it. They only move it from one city to another. To deliver mail, a different truck would be used, not these.

Because in the DAT, unit weight is listed as 126. One ton is 255.

Hey Drengin. That's the very first truck I did but it's not done yet. I'm trying to get the correct info for it. It should be released soon.

@Zainy521, I sent you a pm to discuss this further because I don't know what you're talking about.

Has anyone else heard of this? Plastikman would know.
