[WIP] Alutrec 48' SPIF Quad

#1 Post by Smarty » 12 Aug 2017 16:17

Here's something I've been slowly working on since March. Corby was nice enough to send me one of his Alutrec flatbed models, which I've been tweaking, optimizing and texturing. This is going to be a 48' SPIF 3 quad (so tridem plus a self-steer axle at 72" - 72" - 100" spacings) which can legally gross up to ~134,000lb in Ontario with a long enough tractor. It's based on units in the Robert fleet, which have rather interesting construction, lacking rub rails and having routed windows for tarp straps.

It's shown here with a load of white spruce, which hardly weighs anything, but looks snazzy all the same. ;)

The front axle, is that steerable?

Boy would I like an Ontario-Quebec map. This and a few other mods - some yours - would just be a match made in heaven!

ShirBlackspots: Yes, or it wouldn't be SPIF. ;)

BK Vissers: Oh man, if that happened, I would be a very happy camper. The only thing that would make me happier is an Ontario official DLC. :)

Yes! More SPIF, please! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I've been obsessed with SPIF configurations for months now. Definitely excited for this one. :D

Looks awesome!

Excuse the question of someone who's not into modding - does ATS support steerable axles, like ETS2 does?

Why starting another mod ? You have many of unfinished mods. Finish them before starting new project.
