Mass Effect Andromeda Nomad

by   12.6k Rugpeersdude  one month ago



This is my best attempt at the Nomad Rover in the new Mass Effect Andromeda game coming out next month. I don't usually give my opinions about my own builds but I absolutely love driving this thing around. Lol. The Nomad can easily take big bumps and small jumps without breaking anything thanks to Emptybox's XML modded suspension part.

The Nomad is equipped with an "Anti-Gravity" drive to help it jump over holes, canyons, craters, etc. (vtol bar upwards) It can also help the Nomad boost its speed by removing friction due to weight (vtol bar center) or add gravity to increase tire grip (vtol bar down). You only have 50 gallons of fuel so use the "Anti-Gravity" drive sparingly.

Driver Instructions:

Pitch: Forwards and reverse

Yaw: turn left and right

Throttle: "Anti-Gravity" power output

AG1: turn on forward lights

AG2: enable "Anti-Gravity" drive and balance thrusters

AG2 + throttle + vtol bar center: less gravity = less friction = go faster :)

AG2 + throttle 80% + vtol bar up: hover and jump over canyons or big holes

AG2 + throttle + vtol bar down: increased gravity for low traction areas.

Thanks and enjoy!!

    Although, with the thrusters able to give a speed boost, and the RCS stabilisers, this can do the jumps at Sky Park City amazingly. @Rugpeersdude

    @Avro683Lancaster lol. Yea I limited the fuel to give the idea of having to conserve a precious resource and only use the thrusters in an emergency.

    this is wonderful to drive around, even at 3fps, but the fuel leaves something to be desired.

    @DethFromAbove that was definitely something I wanted to make sure this build still had was handling and drivability.
