The Tardigrade is a highly modularized heavy-duty vehicle platform, dedicated to performing conveyance and expedition under the most extreme conditions. Benefit from platform sharing, the Tardigrade is able to switch its modules and prepare for different tasks efficiently. With the offroad enhanced amphibians package, decompression chamber design and in-wheel motor drive technology, the Tardigrade conquers almost any terrain, even on planets where no roads were laid and no atmosphere was found.

    I was going to try this in water, but (see my forum post for more details) all my custom and discovered locations were deleted.

    I literally love this thing. The interior is one of the best I’ve ever seen! It drives great (except for maybe the fact that it can go 300+ mph; but that isn’t a BAD thing.) and boats better! I want one in real life.

    @Hyperloop I can test your next build before upload so I can give you more useful advice for such minor tweaks before the build is publicly posted. Just tag me on builds you want tested while they are still under 1250 parts.

    @EternalDarkness Thanks for the advice, will nudge them later. I tried to find a balance between power/brake and climbing traction, work out nothing :-( if anyone could help will be appreciated!

    This is one very good looking build. However, I have a few tips regarding functionality:
    - Engine and brakes should be much weaker. A truck this big shouldn't have a sports car acceleration and deceleration.
    - Side doors should open on Ag input (input = Activate1) and extending tunnels should be enabled by the same activation group with zeroOnDeactivate = True, so they can't extend when the door is closed or stay open when the door closes.
