    Please look at the Mod section for current info of this mod. Last update of the previous version was from april 2016 :p
    I'll update this first page asap.

    FAQ:
    Q: The rollback/wedgeback/rear doors of the station/ rear doors of the cargobox do not work
    A: They are all linked to the 'tailgate' variable. Make sure this variable has a key binding.
    Q: When are you updating your Moonhawk/Grand Marshall/H-series etc Mods?!?!?!!1!?
    A: I would like to see those updated as well. But fixing/updating these mods takes loads of time. I've got a 40+ hours workweek, a study, home and car work to do, social life etc. I don't know when or if they will be updated.
    Q: Nothing works/the thing exploded on spawn etc
    A: Make sure you are using BeamNG version >=0.18 and this mod version >= 0.7. If this won't help there is probably another mod causing issues.

    Ideas and known issues
    - modern flareside bed
    - classic signals are overlapped by the wide front fenders

    - AI issues: Prerunners can get stuck, haybales can drop
    - The steering of the 'XL' frames has issues (large turning radius) Fixed in 0.7.1
    - steering center of some configs having beam/solid axle/twin I-beam front suspension Improved in 0.7.2
    - camber issues with the twin I-beam front suspension Improved in 0.7.2
    - The rear doors of the station could use some improvement Improved in 0.7.1
    - The station itselfs could use some improvements Improved in 0.7.2

    Known Issues/improvement needed: (anyone knows a fix?)
    Known Issues/improvement needed: (anyone knows a fix?)
    - All textures are 'slapped on' the original D15 Pickup texture maps, adding non-smooth/multi-colored skin/texture will have unwanted results
    - First gear in the manual 6 doens't drive smooth at idle
    - Rollback bed bounces
    - Snorkel sometimes doesn't function (kills the engine before submerging) Changing to a regular engine and back might work
    - Deformgroups of the runninglights/toplights are not properly functional ("BEAMNG |ERR| deformgroup on beam not found on any flexmesh: (deformgroup name)")
    - Lots of "Warning: collada <lines> element in (part name) is not supported"
    - Performance class might not be correct (?)
    - Ramp of the gooseneck trailer car hauler deforms funny
    - Gooseneck car hauler front vibrates a bit
    - The loaded gooseneck flatbed trailer doesn't load properly, zip problem.

    FIXED:

    - Rear brakes on the short HD frame with single rear wheels not working; cause not found, but copied some parts from other jbeams and the problem appears to be gone (FIXED v0.4.1)
    - West coast style mirror's texture. Removed the semi's material from the materials.cs, solved it. You need to have the semi in your cache. Having it in this materials.cs duplicated it somehow.(FIXED v0.4.1)
    - Van's seat texture missing when this mod is installed; Looks a bit like the above's error; it can't be duplicated and coexist, in contrary with the pickup materials. Removed the van's materials from the materials.cs, which solves the problem, but one has to have the van materials loaded in the cache folder. (FIXED v0.4.1)
    - Hubcaps missing; small typo, solved (FIXED v0.4.1)
    - Right taillight frame missing on the crew cab 8' bed; solved, multi-DAE error (FIXED v0.4.1)
    - Spotlights on the wedgeback are misaligned; found out the jbeam was a bit of a mess, cleaned it a bit and the spotlights (and deformgroups) (FIXED v0.4.1)
    - Spotlights on the sides of the rollback flatbed are misaligned (FIXED v0.4.1)
    - Rollback bed doesn't touch the ground; (FIXED v0.4.1)
    - Tri's on the roofs of the trucks are visible; (Improved but not perfect v0.4.1)
    - Station's rear doors and 'backlight frame' won't change color in the experimental build (It might be fixed in v0.4.0...)
    - D35/D25 Station and 8'bed are having some suspension issues, don't know what it is, creating some speed solves it mysteriously. (fixed v0.3.0)
    - D25 OffRoad versions rear suspension is a bit too bouncy (fixed v0.3.0)
    - Autobed is far from finished, no spotlights, added parts have no n/b (fixed v0.3.0)
    - Crew and station versions doors have some problem in combinations with the running boards. (fixed v0.3.0)
    - Roof of the station is a bit too floppy (fixed v0.3.0)
    - n/b values (fixed(?) v0.3.0)
    - Muffler of the long HD frame is missing, kept getting VY-errors, removed it for the moment (fixed v0.3.0)
    - Running boards are having conflicts with the doors (fixed v0.3.0)
    - Internal camera's are gone in the crew cab and station (fixed v0.3.0)
    - Duallies fenders overlap the rear doors on the station (fixed v0.3.0)
    - Snorkel 'engine' is missing on the HD models (fixed v0.3.0)
    - Glitchy roof for the crew and station models (fixed v0.3.0)
    - Rear stations bench wrong normals (fixed v0.3.0)

    Twin axle trailer;
    - left wheelcover missing; (FIXED v0.4.1)
    - trailer appears not to be attached; (FIXED v0.4.1)
    - Can't accelerate when the trailer detaches; can't reproduce this problem?
    - Trailer bed sometimes sticks to the frame; added coltris and disabled self-collision to the upper part of the frame. (FIXED v0.4.1, better fix v0.5.1)

    Gooseneck trailers
    - Wheelhubs were still hubwheel; (FIXED v0.4.1)
    - Vertical part of the frame collides with the rear bumper; (FIXED v0.4.1)
    - Rear taillights on the flatbed missing (FIXED v0.4.1)

    -----

    Long term ideas:
    - Shortened D15, Bronco/Blazer Style (D10?)
    - Medium Length HD frame
    - Second floor for the wedgeback
    - Solid front live axle

    - Boxed truck (included in v0.4.0)

    - sliding ramp for the autobed (included in v0.3.0)

    --- original first post (from 2014!) ---

    Well hello everyone. I really like this game and besides of the realistic handling, crashes and the diversity of drivetrains available per vehicle compared to some other games, I would also like to see a diversity of body versions per vehicle. I already started altering the Bruckell Moonhawk .DAE and partly made a sedan and subcompact (and having plans for a station and ute) but I got stuck in the process. It's just more work then expected, while being engineering student I have experience with Catia and Pro/E, but none in Blender (and I have little spare time ;) ). Besides Gabester mentioned that some time it will probably be possible to simply move parts, so the Moonhawk variations are on hold for me now.
    Now I made another, slightly less complex variation; A Gavril D15 Stepside/Flareside based on a mixture of 80's Ford Flaresides and Chevy, Dodge Stepsides. I made this with intention to chose the parts next to the standard bed options. The .DAE is mostly finished; the flareside has to be thickened, taillights have to be made (I'm thinking of small square taillights which can be torn of the bed, just like I would like the fender flares to be able to torn off) and the smoothing group is broken. All the jbeams and textures have to be altered. Off to the Wiki again, in the meanwhile; tips and tricks are welcome. :D

    Would be nice with a yellow light bar and a lifeguard/baywatch skin :D

    Re: Gavril D15 Stepside/Flareside

    Looks good. About the smoothing groups though, what I usually do is set it smooth then put an edge split on it. Should do the trick.

    Re: Gavril D15 Stepside/Flareside

    Small update; all parts are in game (I couldn't resist to make some roll bar lights) but all the new parts (rearfenders, taillights, roll bar lights) have almost empty jbeam files for now. The ones which were copied and adjusted (bed, rearbumper, tailgate) are already adjusted though. Maybe I should make them a bit lighter to make up for the smaller size.

    I'm still struggeling with the UV map, is it normal to have one single point where many edges point to? (see image) If not, what's wrong?

    It looks similar. This one actually deforms properly. ;)

    Re: Gavril D15 Stepside/Flareside

    I liked that Bobcat as well, I'm trying to make the new parts to deform as realistic as I can :p It's coincidence that it has four spotlights as well, I haven't played that game in a long time.

    The jbeam of the taillights is done (it's very simple one) and I'm quite happy with the result. The fendersideflares (What's in the name?) are still too stiff and a bit wobbly right now. I might have overdone the number of beams. The jbeam of the spotlights is still empty.

    I've got two questions where I stumbled upon, maybe someone can help;

    For now I've put the UV/texture maps of the new parts on top of already existing parts. The maps of the original D15 are already 'full', there is no room for new parts. What is the best way to make new maps without having to UV the original parts? Is it possible to simply scale and pack all the parts or to add new area to the existing maps and then having a map without a multiple of 1024 pix resolution?

    And can someone explain the meaning of the triangles in the jbeams? I couldn't find something anything about it in the wiki... Or is it a fast way to make a triangle out of three jbeams?

    Thanks in advance! :D

    Re: Gavril D15 Stepside/Flareside

    Due to very little time due to some upcoming exams, I haven't made much progress yet. There are some problems where I haven't found the cause of it yet; Maybe someone has the solution?

    When I crash the rear end of the pickup the adjusted rollbar disappears, including the beams and nodes. When the rollbar lights are on, all nodes except the ones where the lights are on attached disappear. The lights keep floating in mid-air :p )

    A second question; when I copy an object and adjust it (in this case the rollbar, tailgate, bed) do I need to rename the names of all the nodes and beams of the new file?

    And a third question; I've put self-designed (at least, most of it :p) taillights to the pickup, with it's own deformgroup. Now I get errors (The game doesn't freeze, but there are errors in the list)
    "deformGroup on beam not found on any flexmesh: pickup_taillight_L_break" (and pickup_taillight_R_break) That's true (I think) becuause I don't use those deformgroups as there are only in the original taillight jbeam. How can I get rid of this error?

    It would be great if someone can help me :) Thanks in advance!

    The Bobcat was ruined in GTA V, this will be my replacement :D
    Although could maybe this be done? If not, I still love it anyways.

    (Excuse poor paint skills)

    I love Chevrolet Suburbans so I was actually happy with it but would've been smarter if they made it an old Granger and they kept in GTA IV's Rancher.

    @ hadacoolname; such a rear bumper is definitely possible, it's not even hard to make one. There's only one possible problem; I keep the original bed as an option, and the bed and the rear bumper are both subparts of the frame. So one can choose the normal bed and combining it with such a bumper might cause some problems.

    I'm still getting problems in game; the adjusted roll bar keeps disappearing, the taillights and the rear fenderflares are spontaneously crumbling. I adjusted some beams and beam properties on the fenderflares and unselected the rollbar and taillights, it helps but when I crash the car rear end first the complete body now disappears (Not Funny :p)

    Can anyone explain to me what might be wrong? Some help is appreciated :)

    Thanks to Mythbuster I found out what the problem was; I forgot to end some breakgroups in some new jbeams. Fixed it, and immediately found motivation to improve the mod; The rollbarlights are really functioning with real spotlights, made them as option for the regular rollbar, made some spotlights for the offroad bumper and I made a functional snorkel. I gave the modded and regular taillights also 'spotlights' for the brake light. I always thought it was strange to have a reverse spotlight but none for the (almost equally bright?) braking light, it looks nice in a dark surrounding. Making spotlights for the normal taillight might also be possible and will also look nice I think, but I'm not sure if it affects the performance.
    Still have to tune the n/b and fix the textures.
    I've uploaded some screenshots to show what it looks like and what the difference the spotlights make in the cave in Grid Map. There is also a screen of the D15 with the snorkel, the engine is still running despite of the engine being submerged. But I'm not sure what happens when the snorkel (and thereby the inlet nodes) are torn of the body :p
