Hey, look who’s not dead!

In about 10 minutes I’ll be boarding a plane bound for Niagara Falls.

I don’t fly a lot, so it’s pretty cool to experience a flight, plus the airport itself. Might take some pictures

    Okay so finally the side projects for Christmas and whatnot are done, I have worked on the truck and I'm kinda' close to finishing the bed, once that is done you can go for the first test drive. I tagged you in a progress post so you can see what state it is in rn.

    And also the colors are still not changed to the right ones.... I always do that when everything is done.

    @Awsomur Alright so I have been busy with tests, national tests, homework. And well I still am, I was actually going to do some homework today but forgot my book at school so I'll do it on monday. So I took the opportunity and worked on the truck. So yeah... an update on that clicky and clicky again I'll probably finish some more things and then you can test it. (It will be like half weight since it won't have the crane or a bed yet... I haven't even started on those....)

    Oh and also the speedometer works. It goes from 0-90 and is accurate in 10kph increments. So you can actually use it to see your speed.

    So more work done, quite a lot actually. clikcy1 clicky2 It's not the most detailed inside but it has the important stuff. I still have to work on details, the roof and lights and yeah, stuff like that.

    Once the cab is done I'll work on the back and then you can test it out.

    @Awsomur here I don't want to do too much on the insides so the door panels are kinda dull But eventually stuff will get recolored a bit and it might look better.

    @Awsomur Fast and fast, more of procrastinating school stuff ;P and just trying to handle stuff like that but still doing well in school, of course. But I'll make sure to tag you for testing once I've come far enough. I've kept building since the last screenshot so I'll send one soon. Working bit on the doors rn

    You’re making fast progress. Tag me when it’s at a testable level

    Ooh and of course the doors open and close. And I'll make a realistic speedometer, that actually works.

    Also its 520 parts at the time of the screenshot but since drag calculation is disabled it runs wonderfully. (will add drag calculation on like maybe 10 big parts max)

    @Awsomur some more work has been done and this time I have a pic clicky Not really detailed yet or even complete, probably gonna' finish the form of it and do the insides and then detail it. But it's looking good so far. The colors still aren't final though (some of them aren't, at least, like the red)

    @Awsomur okay so I just thought I'd update you a bit, sadly no screenshots this time but I'll just tell you what I added. So basically I worked more on the bumper, the front of the truck and have started a bit with the cab, like the base of the sides and the beginning of doors, you get the point. Not really detailed yet but doesnt look too bad. Also doesnt have any lights yet... front is so annoying to make... but yeah... lights will come later. And I figure that once most of the truck is done except some details I'll let you test drive it beforehand (wont have a crane yet... obviously, I haven't even started on that thing...) so yeah, since then the weight will be there and I can change the acceleration and stuff.

    Slow and steady wins the race. It looks great so far

    @Awsomur Okay so I have made some more progress on the truck. So right now everything is exactly like the blueprint (it's not a replica but it's easier to base it of a real truck) except the suspension, I decided to go for air suspension on all wheels, which is probably not realistic but it looks pretty nice and works in-game. clicky 1 clicky 2

    @Awsomur or I guess this works but I have no clue what the letters are... 9m truck it is

    @Awsomur screw it I'm just gonna go find the measurements from some random truck since this one will be fictional anyways.

    @Awsomur Okay I'll try that... But right now I haven't made a single part because I cant figure out the size of the darn truck. Like I don't even know how long its supposed to be, I'm guessing 10 ish meters? but how wide? god damn it..

    Just a little interior. Maybe a wheel and some lights

    @Awsomur also do you think I should make an interior cab?
    I feel like skipping that might be better since I'm not good at interiors, I can have a nice reflective windshield and it would mean less parts and be simpler.

    @Awsomur Yea I would prefer a flat front on something like this too. And I really dont go for any era, just whatever looks good. And this looks pretty decent. Just different colors would be more to my liking, black and red?

    Everything sounds good. Truck should be flat on the front (not sure what era you’re going for but flat front is modern)

    @Awsomur Also I don't know a lot about trucks but I'm thinking that maybe a scania r500 would be fine to base it of?

    Also this will be an annoying project for sure.... but the result will hopefully be nice. It might be like 1k parts or more which is fine when you play but building is annoying. I'll probably make the truck first, then the crane separately and mount it once everything is done.

    Also.... yay crane might be a bit annoying too because of how its rotated and stuff.

    And I will have to come up with simple controls for it that are easy for people to remember, since I'm not very fond of the ones where there are like 3 activation groups that use the same control that just makes everything inconvenient and harder than it should be.

    Yeah.. I like complaining...
