NAMT Truck Settings Pack 2.0.13

About This File

This is the final release for the truck settings that will be used for the upcoming season of NAMT!  These trucks have seen many iterations and changes over the past few months in the open beta, and I am very proud of the outcome.  The handling of these trucks are drastically different from trucks normally used for Rigs of Rods.

In order to make building trucks with these settings as easy as possible, each truck is propped and textured so all that is needed is a body.  Further, the trucks use a single texture to color many parts of the truck, including the chassis, shocks, swaybars, fourlinks, and rims.  This will allow for retexturing these components to be faster and easier.  Of course, those more experienced with truck building and Blender are welcome to add/change props used as they need.

The second zip in the download list is for building trucks.  The zip contains 8 separate folders with all the files required to make a single, standalone truck for NAMT.

You can read about how to put a truck together here:

Included chassis:

  • Cohen
  • Concussion
  • CRD
  • DKP (Dark Knight Performance)
  • PEI
  • Racesource
  • Rummel
  • Willman

Changes made to these trucks from previous V4 trucks:

  • Total weight reduced from ~22,000 lbs to ~12,300 lbs
  • Total RPM increased from ~4,200 rpm to ~8,100 rpm
  • Top speed reduced from ~68 mph to ~59 mph
    • Currently tuned for standard stadium floor size
  • Tire grip was tuned appropriately and more balanced between front and rear
  • Each chassis uses a fitted node beam to improve geometry, suspension settings, and prop placement
  • Total shock travel lengths reduced to more accurate length
  • New flag structure that is visually realistic, weighs less, and is non-contactable
  • New muffler sounds
  • Working RII lights (CTRL+1, CTRL+2)
  • Each truck is tuned with a specific suspension setting
  • The Willman also features a more forward center of gravity as it is a front engine truck
  • Trucks sport open and split differentials
  • Trucks are tuned using shocks3 section instead of shocks2 (read more about them here: https://docs.rigsofrods.org/vehicle-creation/fileformat-truck/#shocks3)

This has been a long and tedious process and I would like to thank all of you for your patience in waiting for this and NAMT to get going.  I would also like to thank @Wambo for all his help building and tuning these trucks, as they would not be as good as they are without him.  Lastly, thank you to all my beta testers and other contributors:

By far the most fun trucks to drive on the site, kudos to everyone that was involved in the development of these settings
