There are different lengths of blades and towers. Some parts might fit on standard trailers we have now. Some might go on the HH trailers but extend it like the chopper cargo currently does. Orrrrrrrrr, we could get a new extend pole trailer in ATS. Obviously in ATS the blades can't be this long. But 75% of that should be fine. A new extended pole trailer can also be used for bridge supports. So no telling what we get but new cargo is coming at least.
1 I'm am kind of hoping that there would be a variety of blade sizes and lengths perhaps so it can suit flatbeds, HH & ST with even a extendable flatbed trailer option to cart them around. With this paragraph in the recent blog "So it's no surprise that Colorado is home to the number one wind turbine company in the USA, with a highly trained workforce that builds more towers than any other facility in the world. With unique parts and equipment always on the move from the factory to wind farms across the states, we hope you will be a BIG fan of this industry" could give us the option to haul the smaller & medium size and length blades to rail and ship ports for export, i'm just looking at ideas on how they could go about this.
The second thing is how they would go about it when it comes to the larger longer blades, afaik on the extended poles trailers there is either a pilot assisting on one group of axles on steering the trailer around bends and corners or they are remote controlled especially when hitting populated areas, so i'm wondering how they will tackle that considering there is nothing like that in the game atm.
You basically read my mind about the pole trailer being used for bridge supports/beams as well, I'm sure there even used on major concrete and gas pipes as well for major projects.
We agree on this. SCS previously mentioned private shipping in the Darwing blog post. But we couldn't see an airplane body load. Indeed, some new states may have new special loads, I love this idea.
@Sametbey2 all the cargo in ATS needs to be overhauled. There are several cargoes that go to places or picked up from places they shouldn't. Honestly, I think we just have to deal with it for now. Once Texas comes, there should be enough new industries and new companies to overhaul everything. Idaho, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana and Texas....yeah we should get several new cargoes by then. They simple can't do new trucks, new trailers and cargo all at the same time. Something has to take a backseat. My passion is cargo, new companies and new industries, but even I will compromise for new things that must come with new map dlc's. New trailers in new dlc's brings new cargo most times. If they fix things right as they build new trailers, that is cargo they don't have to adjust for the overhaul later on.
We aren't missing too many trailers though. There is livestock, step deck, curtain sider and storage style. I can see all those coming except storage within the next 2-3 years. Livestock is self exclamatory. Stepdecks and curtain siders are popular for facilities without docks so farms fit that nicely. Especially if we get some type of forklift loading cutscene stuff going on.
I've hauled ass down the road to deliver new cars and trucks, fuel, freight, and produce. Now I'm ATS addicted to doing the same thing in a simulation.
Below are a few trailers that could be provided as a new type if SCS created something a more suitable trailer to haul these monster blades. We only need one of the below though. Possible cargoes: wind turbine blades, Steel I-beams, Concrete I-beams, long girders, telephone poles, long water pipes, metal electrical towers, long metal tube and what ever else SCS can throw at us. I really like the articulated style. That could suite ATS the best considering we currently have that in the game and we know we can take corners with it. Extend flatbeds would be cool but they are limited in length. The pole type is the simplest perhaps but rounding corners can prove more difficult. Note on pic 5 though, that there is a pivot mount on the pole trailer once the load is strapped down. That can help the load twist properly. Here we go:
Articulated trailer 01
Extended flatbed trailer 01
Extended flatbed trailer 02
Tube trailer 01
Tube trailer 02
Tube trailer 03
Tube trailer 04 - XL Brand trailer. See video of trailer here. The truck in video is a dedicated truck for this trailer but SCS could use the idea for extended flatbeds.
