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.
- Several popular types of hitch are available for both ends of the chain:
- Female ball hitch
- Male ball hitch
- Male fifth wheel peg
- The new towhook
- The length is now configurable from under 2.5 meters up 24 meters in 1.8m increments.
- Use the chain to break stuff.
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.)
