    NOTE : SOME MOD MAPS HAVE EXCESSIVELY HIGH SURFACE GRIP WHICH MIGHT KEEP THIS VEHICLE FROM STEERING PROPERLY. IF YOU HAVE ISSUES THAT ARE MAP SPECIFIC, PLEASE REPORT THEM TO THE MAP'S MAKER.

    An all purpose amphibious 8x8 off-road vehicle.

    Capable of moving around both on land and in water, using jbeamed paddle tires

    On land the 8 tires and low weight make it quite capable when it comes to offroading.

    Driving tips:
    • Steering is done using a braking based skid-steering system. It works fairly well off-road, but on-road you will bleed quite a lot of speed when turning.
    Known issues:
    • Mesh can get spiky in some areas.
    • The pressureGroup system can cause some "interesting" behaviors at times, mostly when entering the water upside down and in some collisions.

    Awesome mod!!! I always love new vehicles, and this is a special one! there are a few things this mod could have. One thing I would definitely enjoy would be more engine options. The current engine it has fits but seems very low on power, and maybe we could get some stronger engines and maybe a racing V8 just for the laughs. another thing, maybe add the 5-Lug wheel option as well as the beaver wheels and tires. just to make better and cooler looking configs. maybe some more rusty paintjobs too. maybe even JATO rockets... ya know just the small stuff here and there. That would make it so much more fun! I love this mod and it has so much opportunity! Keep it up :)

    I'm not convinced by the steering system, I know you mention the problems with on-road driving, but up hill it is completely impossible to turn. I think that the vehicle needs more power if the steer by braking system is to remain. Again, off-road driving with any sort of hill makes this nowhere near as capable as people say it is. That all sounds very negative, but this is an amazing mod which shows promise! It just needs more power to use a brake steer system, or potentially use differential based steering (don't brake the inside wheel, but send more power to the outside wheel) to overcome the engine power shortcomings

      I'm making some adjustments to the transmission, which should give it a bit more torque to the wheels at slower speeds.

      The engine/steering system combination is very close to what the Argo 8x8 uses, with brake based steering along with a 40ish horsepower engine.

      In my experience even the current repo version is limited mostly by the tire grip when it comes to offroading. It does require a specific technique though, you need to be careful when steering to avoid bogging down too much.
