    Why hello all, crazy to see you here.

    I think I have teased you all long enough, so prepare for:
    ANOTHER TEASER MUHAHAHA!

    So the truck is super configurable, basically you can switch between wide body, and dove tail front and rear.

    You could also use the short cage in the rear for even more clearance :D.

    Let me know what you all think!

    So ... it's modular - and it seems to fit the various cab sizes. This is something I hadn't expected, but it does mesh well with the overall customizability of the game at large.

    How does this work in the parts menu? Is everything a different frame option, or is this some special system of subframes applied to cut-down stock frames. What's going on under the bodywork there - how does it all connect?

    How many of those parts can you put on a stock frame D series? I want that good, lights, bed, and probably some suspension bits to make the ultimate stock-ish d series.

    Cool, could maybe give the LKS pre-runner a run for it's money. With any luck it might also actually be drivable.

    They model the vehicles in Blender and Blender has a Render mode that can very realistically simulate real life graphics. These are not photos of Beam But the vehicles will be In beam.

    I believe they are untextured renderings of the vehicle model.

    We are still developing the N/B chassis at the moment, so I should have the answers soon :)

    Haha, I was laughing when people were saying crawler vs prerunner. I was in my seat going "muhaha, its ALL OF THE ABOVE!"

    Awe thank you!

    So the cage and suspension won't cross over since you pretty much have to have everything to work correctly like in real life. But body panels like the dov tail and wide body, that will all cross over to the stock one :). Also the roof lights.
    THank you!
    Ahhh yeah! I can't wait to show you all more!
    I loveee the LKS prerunner!

    It may have bothhhhhh, or none, or it floats like in "back to the future". I'll have to make a suspension update soon.
    Same as the stock D series motors, nothing unique has been created for the offroad version as far as the engine goes.
    3D printed version would be cool. Although I was just messing around with materials. This was my attempt at faking sub surface scattering in Blender, but I always liked the look. So I slapped it on this one hehe.

    this will be fun to toss around bajarama!
    i have a question:
    will the body panels have any special lightweight properties or are they going to be reused from the d-series with changes to fit the chassis?

    No worries mate, as long as it has over 1000bhp and spits flames out the exhaust system and leaves your senses assaulted by the sheer violence that will be all fun for me :D
