Challenging ultra heavy build, huge wheels, complex specs.

[Off-highway, rigid dump trucks specifically engineered for use in high-production mining and heavy-duty construction environments]

[Download loaded version here]

Controls:

PITCH UP - Accelerate
ROLL - Steering
PITCH DOWN - Brake
BRAKE - Power Brake
VTOL UP - Elevate DUMP BOX
5 - Fog Lights
6 - Warning/Emergency Lights (Auto deploy with dumpbox)
7 - Switch between Registration and Loading Order Numbers
8 - Front/Rear Lights ON/OFF
YAW - Directional Lights (just tap)

Features:

  • 400,000 lbs Empty, Cargo Capacity 100-200,000 lbs (current setup)
  • 517 parts only
  • Special formula for engine. Slow acceleration, high torque at low speed (allowing you to climb 30 ° slopes with 100k lbs cargo. Unrealistic, but FUN).
    Also engine brake, normal braking, restricted reverse speed etc...
  • Directional Lights advanced formula (based on Leehopard input), outside and inside, plus switcher inside cabin. Activate on YAW, deactivate when turn is complete or wheels rotate on opposite direction
  • Interior digital screens (DumpBox Elevation and Artificial Horizon)
  • Interior led lights based on Moving Forward, Reverse, High Pitch/Roll Angle and DumpBox activity.
  • 43 is the Truck Registration Number, while 17 is (Un)Loading Cargo Code. LCC auto activates on dumpbox elevation
  • Speed and RPM Dials (RPM indicator goes to red zone if you climb slopes)
  • Access Stairs Auto-Retract/Fold when vehicle moves
  • Engine exposed (next to cabin). If you want a more realistic/less fun approach or just more power for heavier load feel free to adjust the engine HP

Btw, in real life these things are surprisingly agile, moving faster than expected. But they are not allowed on public roads, they travel in pieces.

    Why would you need such a complicated formula for input
    Just do something like Pitch / (0.0001 + GS/30), and then set the max angular speed of the wheels to something like 2 (revolution per second)
    I mean, the actual vehicle is diesel-electric anyways

    Awww it's not the 300 ton monster that can lift another 300 tons :/
    But it's so extremely, extremely strong. I can't resist

    Hi, I came here because of P0TET0Z's Lego car - I also search a Yaw input for blinkers. Can I please use your blinker script too? :D
    If yes, can you also explain me please how to make a blinker lever with a rotator that works the same way? :)

    I got to use this finally and this is a new favorite of mine. Everything is so chunky and satisfying and I freaking love it. Plus it's simultaneously realist and like the old style metal Tonkas I used to have. Really 100% great work.

    @BogdanX Excellent! Hopefully I’ll find the time for another build this year. Great truck btw. Never driven one but I operate other heavy equipment irl and have a great deal of appreciation for such things.

    @OrangeConnor it might be if I've never even started it yet. I'm on an indefinite break from this game, and there are lots of things rolling in my mind.

    Something like this was on my to-do list. Won't be topping it anytime soon, so it'll probably go in the bin. Nice.

    How do you make the picture a screenshot? The "Upload with Screenshots" mod doesn't work for me, does the Designer Suite do this?
