Rear Crane and New Vehicle Add-ons v 1.1.8

Date May 27, 2020 10:43 am

All .xml edits are done by me. No new textures or meshes are included. These are all in game resources.

I have tested this mod to make sure there are no add-on and trailer collision issues, however, some very small sacrifices had to be made for functionality. In order to allow for more room for add-ons on the truck frames, I have forgone the use of the cabin protector in most cases except during the use of 5th wheel hitches. The Russian crane is now used on almost every truck due to it’s compactness and ease of mounting position. When loading metal planks onto the flatbed with the crane mounted on the rear, you’ll notice that the cargo cannot be positioned properly on the bed, however, it is still able to be packed, unpacked and unloaded. Also, in order to offset the weight of the crane being moved to the rear of the trucks, I have reworked the suspension. I never liked how stiff of a ride the trucks were. Now they have a little more suspension flex and travel. This should make the ride easier on and off road. A couple of suspension upgrades have been added to assorted trucks.

I debated whether to add my scout vehicle modifications, but I noticed that most people were using their own suspension settings for the vehicles they liked. If it is requested enough, I will upload reworked scout vehicles to include the ability to haul medium sized trailers, have more repair and fuel add-ons (depending on the vehicle) and sensibly upgraded wheel choices.

Lastly, I fixed a couple of nitpicks I had with the winch sockets not lining up with the trailer tongues, added diff-lock to the Royal BM17, and improved the power and reach of the Russian mini crane.

The latest update implements custom truck names to differentiate my modded trucks from others in the store. You will see my logo, “JjJ” at the end of the truck name now.

***I’ve included a manual install only option for those that want to use the files as they see fit. Replace game files at your own risk and always back them up first.**
