Pierce Velocity Heavy Duty Aerial Ladder

6,158 SparkySparkyTheFiretruck  5 months ago

Been working on this for a couple weeks. This is my first build with mechanics, and advanced stuff. Not too good at that lol, I’ve got a lot to learn about it all.

AG groups:
AG1 For Emergency Response Lights
AG2 for Headlights
AG3 to deploy Stabilizers
AG4 to extend the Stabilizers (Don’t turn on slow mode when extended, it likes to explode and idkw)
AG5 for Ladder operation VTOL & Trim (be careful with it, incorrect operation may result in destruction)
AG6 to extend the ladder (VTOL UP)
AG7 for Water Nozzle on the latter, VTOL & Trim
AG8 for a small Gyro

This is my first build with mechanics, so if you find any bugs, most likely because I couldn’t fix them.
It’s got unrealistic weight due to the fact I lost the blocks containing the Weight/Mass, but it atleast helps with traction. Which the traction is another issue, but preserves the fact that this type of Fire Apparatus is meant for City Responses. So try not to take it off road too much or up really steep grades. Later on I’ll try and remaster this when I learn more about Overload Settings, Suspension, Weight, Traction, etc etc...
But anyway, thanks for stopping by and checking this out! Enjoy!

    Sure, but right now I’m working on making the tires Traction, and finding a way to make suspension. My current fire apparatus, and fly cars are shelved for the time being, as I’m working on my first airplane. @Camodogamingrocks

    Love the lights and stuff it’s awesome! Functional realistic it’s really fun! However there is one thing wrong, when you try to launch it off the USS Beast catapult it just explodes. For a carrier aircraft as such it should be able to takeoff from the catapult and also have a tail hook especially since this is a fire truc. What a shame.
