  1. Question About After-Show at Monster Jam

    I'll take the honors of locking this before any more spaghetti comes out of your pockets...
  2. The Plan for WF18

    You should definately release a .blend file of the stadium with all those props in the Scrapyard.
  3. NAMT 2018 Q&A Thread

    That looks pretty good from what I can see, can you just post another picture without the body?
  4. NAMT 2018 Q&A Thread

    As of right now, no. Unless there is an overwhelming amount of interest in allowing repli-customs, we will be entirely custom for NAMT. I'm hoping that everyone will be able to find a custom truck to run, either by revamping an older truck or by making a new custom entirely. There are a good amount of open customs on the site if you look around for them, I know @Double.D ッ has made a pack and a couple separate trucks that are open for anyone to use. I figure announcing this in January for a June start will allow everyone ample time to either get someone to make a truck for them or figure some way of getting a truck to run. If by the time the league is getting close, say mid-May, and you still don't have a ride, contact me and I will see what can be done. Yes we do have specific settings required to run. You can check them out in this thread here: Please be sure to read this and ask questions if you have any. Also, the sooner you get your truck to me to be approved the better. Remember you truck must be approved by the Saturday before a race in order to race that weeks event! This is going to be one open tour. Events will be qualify in, meaning you run two timed laps during the qualifying period, typically 2 hours before the race, and the fastest 16 drivers get into the event. There is no budget system for NAMT, the primary focus is on the driving on the track. So long as your truck is approved, you are free to try and run as many events as you please.
  5. NAMT 2018 Q&A Thread

    If you have questions or concerns about this league, a truck you are looking to run, a modification you want to double check, or anything else that relates to NAMT, go ahead and ask away. I will try to answer questions as quickly as possible. I'll edit this post to include some FAQ or other questions I find important enough to highlight. Ask away!
  6. NAMT 2018 Custom Truck Modification Rules

    Alright, so in order to make these rules as clear as possible, I am posting an entire thread for people to ask questions about the rules for truck modifications. Along with the rules being listed in the rule book (which you can read here), here is the full section for truck modifications: NAMT is a fully custom league, limitations to customization are listed here. Truck modifications must be approved before racing. Truck files and .zip’s should be uploaded and emailed to northamericanmonstertrucks@gmail.com for approval. Once approved, you are allowed to compete. Trucks must be submitted for approval by midnight of the day before an event. Trucks must be entirely standalone when uploaded. Trucks will not be approved if files are missing. Truck sounds are required for approval. Modifications tutorials can be found here https://goo.gl/pV88ie and here http://sim-monsters.com/topic/9087-node-beam-editing-with-blender-249b/ Note: Not all modifications listed in this tutorial may be legal, be aware of what you are doing before making changes. Note: Rules pertaining to allowed changes listed in this tutorial are not official for NAMT, as they are old rules from SSRS. Truck file documentation can be found here: http://docs.rigsofrods.org/vehicle-creation/fileformat-truck/ Sections will be directly addressed based on their documented section title. Node/Beam modifications: Nodes/beams may only be modified from a base V4 truckfile, no nodes/beams may be added or deleted to or from the truck file unless otherwise stated. Nodes/beams may only be modified in order to more fit the shape of the chassis being used. Custom chassis are explained in the section below. Nodes such as shock nodes, four link nodes, and sway bar nodes may be kept at their stock position or moved closer to match the chassis shape. Truck files will be needing of approval before being allowed to race. Ask before you attempt to change something if you are not sure, ignorance is not an excuse. You may add or remove sway bars from your truck to better adjust handling. You may make front chassis nodes 16, 17, 35, and 36 non-contactable in order to better adjust handling. It is suggested you make flag nodes 119, 120, 121, 122, 123, 124, 125, 126, 127, 128 and,129 non-contactable to avoid awkward landings and rebounds. Any other possible edits to the node/beam are illegal and are a punishable offense.

Leaf-sprung, cantilever, independent front suspension, independent rear suspension are not allowed for this league. Chassis designs may be denied under any circumstance.
  7. NAMT 2018 News and Information Thread

    As I usually do with leagues I host, I like to maintain a news and information thread that will offer you all a list of links to various information and content you could need that relates to NAMT. I will post updates here as we move along, but this thread will be locked at all times. If you have any questions there will be a Q&A thread posted that will allow you all to ask as many questions as you may need.

  8. Welcome to NAMT

    Well, there are still some open customs available on the site for download and use, some may be in need of updating though. Otherwise, I'm sure there are at least a few people who would be willing to help clone or skin.
  9. Welcome to NAMT

    Right now, no. If there's enough people who want to, we can. I'm looking to get everyone to make/use a truck all their own for this league, but nothing is in stone at the moment.
  10. Welcome to NAMT

    Welcome to North American Monster Trucks, NAMT. This is an all new league focused entirely around custom trucks and custom tracks. NAMT will be kicking off in June of this year for a 9 city tour across the United States ending at the first ever NAMT Grand Championship. More information will be released as the year moves forward, for now here is a quick rundown of the basic rules of this league: 8 Regular Season events and 1 Grand Championship event Regular Season events consist of 16 trucks, all racing and freestyling Events will be qualify-in only (fastest of two qualifying laps) Custom trucks only (more information to be posted soon) Looking forward to hosting NAMT this year, hopefully I will see many of you on the tour. Also, I’d suggest getting to work on a custom if you don’t have one already! You all have six months to get ready, so good luck!
  11. Show Your Project Chapter 61

    So I made a custom paint for rFactor a few years ago: I felt like making a truck today, so I'm repainting and making a new version: More work to come, nice getting to make something again. Some stuff is from @rockgod88 's Chuck Werner El Toro Loco 2016, some stuff is older, and obviously the body and window netting is from @fernBurn. Didn't even expect to put this on a Wilman, but it fits perfectly. Also made my first pair of headers, like how they came out. And by the way, it seems that the Jeep hood nearly fits perfectly on the Max-D body.
  12. Well I left this out to collect dust for a while, again. If I have some spare time I'll try to work on this again. I also gave @Mr. Beardman permissions to edit, so that someone can keep up when I inevitably forget about this again. If there is anyone else who would be interested in helping keep this up to date, send me a PM. If I think I can trust you, you'll get permissions to edit as well. Once again, here is the link (last updated 7/26/16): https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1LmVsxEdE8uOcu04xAjTP7QuiWCaQBLGiJjJ997FAtKk/edit#gid=760106793

    When do sign-ups open for season 3?
  14. Official Monster Truck "Silly Season" 2K17 Thread

    So with the recent news of the Oakland Raiders soon moving to Las Vegas in the coming years, there seems to be heavy speculation that the UNLV Rebels will also be moving into the new stadium that is being built. The new stadium isn't being built on top of Sam Boyd, but that does raise the question, what happens to the stadium if the Rebels leave? Does the World Finals move out to somewhere else? Orlando is no longer an option to host the similar racing style with recent renovations. Will FELD buy a stadium just to maintain the legacy of the World Finals, or is this the beginning of a new World Finals for Monster Jam? http://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/oakland-raiders-may-share-their-stunning-new-las-vegas-stadium-with-unlv/
