  1. Black BKT Tires in

    As one of the people who use the new RoR version, make sure that the vehicles have the right bkt tires in their zip files. If they're inside the zip file and placed with the whole v4 pack in the vehicles directory, and all should show up just fine.
  2. Share Your Specs

    I may as well chime in on this, now since I can compare the old to the new. The old one was an ASUS K53E from 2011, and it had the following specs: 2nd generation i5-2430M Dual Core GPU (2.40GHz, capable of 3.40GHz via Intel Core Boost), 4GB's of DDR3 RAM (upgraded to 8GB's before the initial swap happened), 500GB HDD, and an integrated Intel HD Graphics 3000 graphics card. The new one I recently got after ordering it on the 14th and receiving on the 16th is the 2017 MSI GL62M-7REX-1067, which has a 7th generation i7-770HQ Quad Core CPU (2.08GHz, capable of 3.80GHz with Intel Core Boost), 16GB's of DDR4 RAM (capable up to 32GB's, but not taken advantage of yet), 512GB PCI-E (Generation 3) SSD, and both a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti primary dedicated graphics card and integrated Intel HD Graphics 630 secondary graphics card. Compared to the old one, the new one outperforms it in every single way, and I couldn't be any happier in all honesty.
  3. Rigs Of Rods Screenshot Showcase Thread

    Incoming wall of RoR reshader mod pics... Also, this is all possible thanks to a new laptop I bought on the 14th and got on the 16th of this month.
  4. New to RoR, but there's a problem...

    I'll try your method and see if that works. EDIT: I know what was causing the issue now. Turns out some of the trucks lacked the right tire textures, which was the 2016 BKT's. I fixed that and now all works as it should.
  5. As the title shows, after all the years I've been using the 0.3x versions of RoR, I finally decided to upgrade to the new one, but unfortunately I have ran across the problem where the trucks have texture issues on both the tires and the steering wheels, and I'm not sure if it has something to do with the way the material files are set up or so. I know FernBurn made a topic about this, but nothing about how to fix it. If anyone here knows how to effectively fix this issue, it would be greatly appreciated!
  6. New to RoR, but there's a problem...

    Well, besides the default V4 folder, I have the zipped vehicles placed inside of that. I'm not sure if that should be the way to do it, but I found that doing that in 0.39 lead to them loading up perfectly fine and whatnot.
  7. New to RoR, but there's a problem...

    Thank you! I can't believe that passed my sight! And I'll keep that in mind!
  8. Rigs Of Rods Screenshot Showcase Thread

    Just made this scheme... EDIT: Two more pics were added.
  9. Are They a Virus?

    Here's a little tip when downloading anything from Mediafire. Best thing to do is right click and then click "open a new tab". It'll bypass the pop-ups and you can download whatever you're wanting with ease.
  10. Sim Monsters Annual "What Did You Get?" Thread

    I mainly received $75 dollars that is going to be used on a model kit that I ordered, I'm just waiting for the store to call to inform me that it is ready to be picked up. As for what the kit is though, it's the High Grade Universal Century 1/144th scale MS-07B-03 Gouf Custom. http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10126361 <- That's what the kit looks like. Besides the kit, I'm picking up other materials that will be utilized in improving the kit's appearance, and possibly using the rest to buy an eShop card for my New 3DS XL.

    Yep... Shambhala 2017 came, but with a new name.
  12. Official Monster Truck 2K18 Thread

    It's just a shame the BMO Harris Bank Center isn't big, I mean, seriously... That's it. That's all they have to work with.

  14. Official Monster Truck 2K18 Thread

    So apparently there's a show happening tonight and tomorrow at the BMO Harris Bank Center in Rockford, IL, which is kinda close to where I live at, but sadly I'm unable to see it. I at least got to meet the driver for Grave Digger #31, which is Brandon Vinson, since he had the truck parked for display over at the Metro PCS store just a few minutes away from my home in Loves Park. Thankfully I got an autograph from him and asked him a few questions, and apparently he actually plays Rigs of Rods, which took me by surprise. As for the other drivers for the event there, Monster Jam's site provided this: " Master of Disaster driven by Paul Strong, Max-D driven by Jared Eichelberger, Mutant driven by Steven Sims, Rage driven by Cory Rummell, Stinger driven by Zane Rettew, Wrecking Crew driven by Mike Thompson."

    Hah, I've never seen that kind of terrain for RoR before. Nice looking truck so far though!
  16. XunlexRods = Back!

    Yep, that's definitely aggressive sounding if you ask me!
  17. Music thread

    Brand new tune collab by Dirtyphonics and Sullivan King!
  18. XunlexRods = Back!

    Oh man, it's great to see you back Xunlex! I'm looking forwards to the new sounds you have, especially those zoomies. Keep it up!
  19. Music thread

    Apparently Sullivan King decided to do a debut album.
  20. Rigs Of Rods Screenshot Showcase Thread

    It may not be monster truck related, but since this vehicle literally shares a part that came from here, it may as well be posted. This car right here is the finished form of a project I started over 2 years ago, and during the last time I worked on it, I had no idea what else would be best. Fast forward to a few weeks ago, and after some heavy thought, I revisited the mod and gave it a new scheme, plus some minor fixes, and with the help of a friend I know who happens to be one of the current admins on the Rigs of Rods forums, I was able to have a new spoiler placed onto it, as well as having valve flaps that actually move when the car accelerates and decelerates. The only thing that needs to be fixed is the unstable n/b, but sadly that's something I would need dire help with, since I don't know jack squat with that besides flexbodies, wheels, props, sounds, and some speed settings. Anyhows, here's the list of credits for this beauty. 1973 Ford Falcon XBGT (Body): Hemiboy. RS Watanabe Type AB Wheels: MrSteakPotato & Charger. V4.5 Engine model: SealedGecko & modified by Voulk. Further edits done by Michael10055. Sparco Seats: Hemiboy, placed by Voulk. Gavril Bandit Extreme Spoiler: Gabester & placed by Michael10055. Paint Scheme: ShawnVallance (me.)

    This one is metal as heck! In other news, Excision released the Virus remix album, and it's pretty neat.
  22. Show Your Projects Chapter 59

    Okay, I'll be frankly honest, seeing all of these trucks is seriously impressing me! Also, that Monster Patrol custom looks sick! Keep up the great work on all of these!
  23. Metal Mulisha 2017 Fixed

    Yet again another highly detailed truck! Thanks to those who worked on this project, and keep up the great work as always!
  24. Show Your Projects Chapter 1

    Holy crap dude, is that mesh like a brand new one, or customized from one of the early RoR vehicles, because if it is brand new, props to you for making an actual Charger! We've needed one of these things for idk how long, but you've finally answered the long awaited prayer!
  25. Show Your Projects Chapter 58

    Woah, those do look much better! I'm liking what I'm seeing there, keep it up!
