    This is great. Several years ago I suggested a cab over semi as a "most wanted". Loved these as a kid (still do), and spent many hours sketching them.
    Peterbuilts were always my fav. Looking quite good already. Have fun!

    Fair enough, I'm trying in Blender. I just practice making convertibles (just removing roof cleanly) but I'm starting to learn to model

    That looks like a real truck. Now that I think about it, it looks like a old white freightliner.

    So happy to see the implementation of a cab-over semi-truck in BeamNG - this is truly a mod to look forward to.

    Yeah luckily for you this should be a fairly simple jbeam process, as it’s essentially a modified T-Series cab with no hood on in. I was thinking about going and trying to model a cab over but I’m a modeling noob and you beat me to it anyway. Good luck, it’s looking great!

    I mean, that's Euro Truck Simulator from the looks of it, but that would be a whole lot more modeling and jbeam creation.
