Mark IV Tank V1.11

It's a long, long way to Tipperary

    "In Flanders fields the poppies blow
    Between the crosses, row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
    Scarce heard amid the guns below.

    We are the Dead. Short days ago
    We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie
    In Flanders fields.

    Take up our quarrel with the foe:
    To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
    We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
    In Flanders fields."

    In Flanders Fields, by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae of the Canadian Expeditionary Force

    On the 11th of November 1918, 11:11 AM Paris time, the so-called "war to end all wars" ended. The same date and time in the Year 2018 mark 100 years since the Armistice. This virtual model of a Mark IV tank is my way of commemorating this occasion, as well as the lives of the millions of people who lived, fought and died during the First World War.

    Lest We Forget

    The Mark Four Heavy Tank was part of a family of British armoured fighting vehicles entering service in 1916 with the Mark One. First used during the Somme Offensive, the tank as a concept proved its worth on the battlefield. In 1917, the Battle of Cambrai saw the first mass use of the Mark Four, with over 400 vehicles taking part in the melee. Tanks have been a mainstay of warfare ever since.

    Mod Features
    - Functional slidenode-based tracks based on a concept by Mythbuster and also employed on the Simple Tank.
    - Individually animated track segments
    - 4 paint schemes
    -Skin support
    - 2 gears, high (1st) and low (2nd). It does not play nice with the standard BeamNG shift logic, so if you want to select low gear you must use manual mode.

    Please note this vehicle does NOT feature functional weaponry and probably never will. Do not modify or re-upload. Skins are allowed. Thank you.

    I absolutely love the Mark tanks of WW1, and this mod is very well done. I wanted to give 5 stars but I had to take one off for the ridiculously bouncy physics, and the inexistance of damage to the tank.

    Its a good mod, fun for destroying cars and all, what is done is well done, however, i miss a few thing which makes it not as outstanding as the gladiator for example in my opinion. First, guns, it's been done before, so we know guns are possible in BeamNG, even if they couldnt rotate firing guns would've been great for destroying cars and all. Second, an interior. Cars get a cool interior and all, why not the tank? It'd have been great to have an interior, although i realize its a lot of work. Also the tank physics are kinda weird, it loves to bounce... like for real, it bounces around like a beach ball if it falls any distance, even when the front rises up while climbing something and then falls when it finishes climbing it'll bounce and even flip over. Still, above avrage mod, keep up the good work! :D

    I'll give 5 stars to the mod only because it's good. I understand it's commemorative for remembering WW1, appreciation for those that fought and died in WW1, and so on.

    Though I also understand it's a tank in With all the stuff we got in BeamNG (a very realistic yet crazy game) and other mods made for the sake of realism, that also have alternate versions for those that wanna go a bit nuts, I Don't think that making a faster version is all that "stupid." Even just more gear(s) to allow maybe 15mph.

    I will be honest though I haven't been super bothered by the speed of it for the most part till recently when driving from between the tracks. Just wanted to make a review and give my two cents. Anyway very well done mod regardless.

    Please for the love of god make it faster. I realize its realistic but i cant really have fun with the thing if its going that slow. I don't understand why is the second gear needed because it just makes it even slower. Id love to give it 5 stars but its a bit frustrating when you want to go to point A to B and can watch a YouTube video while doing it when it takes mere seconds for a Covet. (Doesn't need to be very fast, maybe like a bus' speed? a city bus maybe?) My suggestion would be Adding the option of a different engine. one that is more powerful and could make it go faster for fun not realism.

      Then you don't understand the point of the mod. If you don't find the characteristics of this tank "fun" then don't use it. Simple as that. Don't whine at the creator to add an unrealistic, unauthentic and just plain stupid feature. City bus speeds? Are you having me on?

    Thank you for this commemoration.
    the fact you put so much time into a recreation of such a monumental occasion is astonishing. Im glad others recognize the importance of WW1, and have not forgotten it and all of the lost lives.
    Again, Thank you.

    Hello! I really like this mod. Could you maybe make a modern tank?
