Torsions Vehicle-to-Vehicle Couplers v08

Overhauled Giant Chain!

  1. torsion

    1. Several popular types of hitch are available for both ends of the chain:
      1. Female ball hitch
      2. Male ball hitch
      3. Male fifth wheel peg
      4. The new towhook
    2. The length is now configurable from under 2.5 meters up 24 meters in 1.8m increments.
    3. Use the chain to break stuff.
    The v0.9 release of BeamNG provides the best performance yet for the Giant Chain. It's less likely to get stuck in tires than previously. Driving over the chain gently is much more reliable than previously.

    While this mod represents a lot of work on my part, it owes all of it's mesh assets and a very strong jbeam heritage to the official Giant Flail.

    The original iterations also provided a variety of simple attachments to the stock towhitch. Most of that is now depreciated, but the mod still includes one additional piece of equipment for joining vehicles together: "Short Towstrap (Female)". This special hitch allows you to couple one vehicle directly to another. On slow computers this hitch will perform better than the giant chain. (The giant chain spawns a new physics thread, so with two vehicles and a giant chain you've got 3 physics threads which can be hard on dual core laptops / PCs.)

    Cool Mod! But Why Are Bigger Chains Not Attachable In One Side?

      They should work fine. Please post in the "Discuss This Resource" discussion thread with details on the problem. Thanks.

    Needs a feature where you can hook it to cars without any hooks. Like sports cars, or something. If there's a mod to put a hitch on a car without, please link me.

      Everything you asked about is already in either the game or this mod. :-) All official vehicles (including sports cars) have a tow hitch option in the parts menu. The parts menu for the giant chain also includes a "tow hook" options, this is for attaching to the tow hook at the front of cars (which is weak, just like real life)

    This is one of the most entertaining mods. Heavy duty tow hitch from AR162b's semi addons has purple node color, would be nice to have chain attach to that too

    AWESOME mod, super useful. I hope you can add a way to connect it to any node, so you can pull a flipped vehicle over by attaching to its roll bar.

      Of course it does! :-) The towhook attachment point on a car is like a trailer... so you'll need to switch to the chain and press "L" to activate and connect it. You can then switch to the car and move it into place if necessary.

    Awesome mod, seriously helps me with my...experiments.
    Something I would really like to see, is a "Splitter" of sorts, such as 3 chains joined in the middle, so that you could, say, pull 2 pickup trucks behind a semi with a single chain.
