Beta Autobello Mecanodrive 1.0

Makes parking easier with mecanum drive!

  1. Blijo
    What started as a proof of concept turned into a mod.
    I wanted to control electric motors with lua. This was possible(actually easy) and then I wondered if mecanum drive would work in BeamNG.
    This was the case. Then I decided to use this on an Autobello because we all know that it is hard to park an Autobello.

    About the wheel:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mecanum_wheel
    It is somewhat fragile, don't rally with it :D

    Drive modes:


    P=Park
    R=Reverse, all motors turn the same direction. Front wheels steer conventionally


    Move with throttle+steering input:
    N=Neutral. Right and left motors turn in opposite directions. Front steering is disabled,
    S=Slide. FR and RL turn the same direction and FL and RR too.


    D=Drive, all motors turn the same direction. Front wheels steer conventionally

    Issues:
    • Handling is somewhat poor, be careful with the rear end.
    • Steering wheel doesn't rotate
    • Small wheels are somewhat fragile
    • No modelled engines, pretend that they are inside the wheels
    Please don't use my code, models, textures etc for other things without permission.

    Hilarious. I'm on my high school robotics team and we use this sort of thing a lot. I've always wanted to do this with a car.

      Cool, I used to be the captain of an FTC team for 3 years (NL0012), we never used mecanum drive but we saw quite some people using them :)
