Some progress today
Also testing traffic:
And added Wooshes
Added a new wrecked car to the junkyard;
@Car_Killer I hope you don't mind me using these (waboll told me you made the junkyard cars I pulled from his Bizona Desert map.)
Ye you can use them, I wanted to make my asset pack for all people someday. Huh
Looks good to me, nice one.
Consent granted, feel free to share.
And it has an x-frame......
That’ll fold into an origami swan I’m sure.
Will we be able to interact with these in any way?
Just saying, I'd advise you to add collision meshes and/or LoDs to your wrecked cars and other map assets if you ever do wish to release them in a map asset pack of sorts... I found out the hard way you took a shortcut
Visible Mesh collision is nice, but it leads to glitchy vehicle collision and can cause lag if used too much.
It's not too hard or time consuming as long as you don't wish to make them into forest assets, I added some crude collision meshes to all of your junker cars in about 5 minutes.
There's a page on the Wiki that explains how to do it;
No, they're just static objects for decoration (Like the boats in Italy and East Coast USA)
isnt crashing into something interacting with it?
Interaction in the sense that MrCin was referring to, no. They're basically just like any other static object.
@Driv3r1142 You could replace old firs by news..
I'm working on that, though no guarantees... I did a quick test replacement before I read your message, one of the tree models didn't load and my framerates went down into the low 20s when I normally get a steady 60 FPS (Changing graphics options didn't help any.)
There's nothing really wrong with the old Fir models anyway besides the fact they need significantly more detail in the textures... But ideally I'd want to use the new assets.
I'm also not entirely sure Douglas Firs are the correct type of primary pine tree for the environment I'm trying to create so I might ditch them entirely and instead opt for vegetation similar to what you have on your old Canyon of Speed map.
Thanks @DrowsySam !
Btw awesome mod, sir I'm just messing around with it trying to expand its boundaries and so, I'm going to
clean up the brutal fragility I created a bit and soon I'll upload this puppy again !

Uhm.. The original lua file was the reason for the mod being broken in later versions of the game so after removing that the
vehicle spawned completely, aside from the steering wheel being of position. Now I guess that's an easy one. Blender - select
the wheel - apply location, rotation, scale - export - repack. If that doesn't work then the prop is still adjustable through jbeam.
I'm not going to do that before I'm going to share it cause time is precious and this awesome mod needs to be used asap again
I think, heh. Anyway, after I removed the lua file I stuffed the lua file from the Rotach (is it 'Rotach') digger into it and made a
few adjustments to get it going . Then patched a diesel sound to it through the user folder to make it sound a bit more
responsive and added some gears too. Then made the lift go higher and then added nodeweight for ballast so now it picks
up all cars, 20' container (I believe 40' too), some trailers etc.. I will clean up the mess a bit, do some testing for 0.17, create
a little description and upload it asap.
Added the Blue Collar series cab to the junkyard;

UPDATE; Added my abandoned 2nd gen Camaro knockoff to the junkyard;
Yeah I know about that, now, that why, It taking bit longer to rework Polish Roads. All my new assets are made now properly with LODs, collmeshes, etc. If old asset don't have them, I reworking it. I used to make meshes in SketchUp long time ago, and now I see how bad idea it was, so I going to replace all SketchUp leftovers. Remember "every time someone use visual collision, gods is killing kittens and puppies" - thomatoes50. I want to improve my maps as far I can. Especially on optimization wise.
Example of latest of my assets, made with some help of @waboll
very nice! you could add bluebuck it would fit
That's great to hear You'll probably agree with me then that once you learn how to do LoDs and collision meshes, you'll wonder why you didn't start using them sooner.
I could add several more vehicles, though I'm going to hold back before I get too carried away
I need to focus on equipment and buildings now... I'll need to make a vintage forklift that could be used to lift cars up to form the car stacks for instance.
If you wish to contribute prop ideas you can post them in the mods thread (Don't worry about bumping it, I won't mind )
Started working on multiple scenarios today, so I made a simple skin. I think i'm going to make others.
EDIT: I'd love to hear your suggestions, as I'm quite bad at making skins
The creation of a static object;
@Alex_Farmer557 has improved lots of russian mods, you can ask him for help
the 'cuda is a really nice muscle car
