    Here are some more updates on Awesome Kong. I've updated the tires to the "mis-match" of tires that were run on the actual truck in 1989 & 1990, with a worn-down Firestone tire on the left-front, and differently-worn Goodyear tires on the other three corners: I've also updated the engine bay in the rear of the truck:

    Yellow and Blue Crush Car pack

    Structurally, the .load files are pretty much the same as a truck file, just with a few sections removed (no engine, soundsources, commands/hydros, etc). One problem I've discovered, though, is that creating each junk car as an individual .load, and placing them next to each other to form a row of cars, can crash the game when you try to drive over them. That's why my tracks have .load files for a row of cars, since the game seems to handle it better when cars placed that close together are part of the same .load. I don't know if this has been fixed in newer versions, however, as I haven't done much testing to that extent since Rigs of Rods 0.4.5. As far as placement on the track, I pretty much use trial-and-error. I'll set them up with an assumed set of coordinates in the .tobj file, load the track in-game & see where they ended up, then adjust the coordinates accordingly. In older versions of Rigs of Rods, when you tried to spawn .load files on a mesh terrain, they would sink through the mesh, to the "ground" underneath, but the collision detection with mesh terrains seems to have been fixed in the newer versions. I just ran a quick test on HotShoe's TNT Mankato Speedway track in RoR 0.4.7, and I was able to spawn a set of junk cars on the high-banked curve of the speedway, without the cars sinking through the mesh.

    Yellow and Blue Crush Car pack

    If you're looking for the blue & yellow crushable cars, they're from my St. Louis 1999 replica. The car sets are .load files, so if you have the track installed in your game, you should be able to spawn the cars on any track you'd like (similarly to spawning a truck).

    I thought I'd have a bit of fun with the video editing on this one, and create a video to look like an old VHS recording, as an homage to "Motor Madness"
