[table] [tr] [td] [release] [table] [tr] [td] [/td] [td] [img]http://www.rigsofrods.com/images/misc/rorlogo.png[/img] Rigs of Rods is a free, open source, soft body physics simulator. It has car physics similar to grand theft auto - only much, much more realistic. [h2]Vehicles[/h2] There's a wide assortment of vehicles - Cars, to Trucks, to Tractors, to Planes. Yep, there's planes. But even if you're not satisfied with all that the game comes with, you can download more cars from the official website. [h2]Physics[/h2] Rigs of Rods is a soft body physics simulator. That means that it simulates objects that have compression, elasticity, force, and more things. Perfect for cars. So the physics in Rigs of Rods are very accurate. Not all cars have this, though. Most of the street cars have it. [h2]Gameplay[/h2] There's no real goal to this "game". It's a sandbox. You spawn cars, you drive them, you crash them. The controls aren't the most accurate, and most cars will swerve off the road if you actually try to drive them. There's a multiplayer component, so you can play with your friends. Keep in mind that this is still in development, so there's a ton of bugs. [h2]Content Creation[/h2] Have an idea for a vehicle you'd like to add? You can do it yourself, easily! Over at the Rigs of Rods wiki, they have a ton of tutorials to help you get started modeling, scripting, and texturing! So if you have an idea, head over to the [url=http://www.rigsofrods.com/wiki/pages/Tutorials]Rigs of Rods wiki[/url]! [h2]Download[/h2] The best part about Rigs of Rods? It's free! Everything, from the client to the content to the source code, is 100% free and open source. So what are you waiting for? Download it now!

And now for penis colada to post all his cool shit
Yeah, this thread is incomplete without penis colada's ridiculously good vehicles.
Gabe, get in here. I wonder if anyone else from that godforsaken hell hole of a Rigs of Rods forum is on Facepunch.

So exactly how do you get cars and what not.
[QUOTE=TheJoker;32723529]So exactly how do you get cars and what not.[/QUOTE] Download them from the site and drop the zips into a certain folder which I can't remember right now. Plenty of vehicles available. Wasn't there a thread already? I occasionally play this game as a way to waste time. Great fun to screw around in. Especially seeing how badly you can fuck up your car.

I remember this game, it was a great time-waster. I can't wait for penis colada to show up.
just got it working. It's a good game. still ain't figured out how to fly the helicopter yet.
Hi guys. I'm gabester. I made all the Gavrils, the shitty Accord and S10, the Burnsides, and the '49 Ford Have some download links (need newest RoR, drop these zips in My Documents\Rigs of Rods 0.38\packs) [url=http://gabefink.com/49ford.zip]'49 Ford[/url] [url=http://gabefink.com/ChevyS1023.zip]Chevy S10[/url] [url=http://gabefink.com/accord23.zip]Honda Accord Hatchback[/url] [url=http://gabefink.com/gavrilzeta.zip]Gavril Zeta[/url] [url=http://gabefink.com/gavril23.zip]Gavril G2[/url] [url=http://gabefink.com/gavrilomega.zip]Gavril Omega[/url] [url=http://gabefink.com/gavrilmz2.zip]Gavril MZ2[/url] [url=http://gabefink.com/BurnsideV323.zip]Burnside[/url] [url=http://gabefink.com/smalltrack.zip]Small Track[/url] [url=http://gabefink.com/bajacross.zip]Bajacross[/url]
The '49 ford is the second best car for RoR (you've been beaten by the honda accord).
Is there something I have to do to turn ABS on/off? I just slammed the brakes on in an MZ2 from about 200kph and the wheels locked up entirely. Also I flipped and crashed and died and now there is car everywhere.
ABS? [editline]12th October 2011[/editline] [img]http://i.imgur.com/0u5YY.png[/img]
[QUOTE=Rocket;32747604]ABS?[/QUOTE] Anti-lock braking system. It helps to stop you from "flipped and crashed and died and now there is car everywhere"
When I start it im just some shitty low res polygon farmer walking around a empty town I tried pressing buttons but nothing happens :I This game has less instructions than minecraft I have no idea what to do.

All the way to the left is where you spawn cars. Does anybody else think the handling sucks. I was going 50 mph and went to turn and my car did a full 360.

You're driving with a keyboard, aren't you?
How do I use my racing wheel for this? It has no real controller config, except for input.map, but how do I know what everything is called?

I watch the videos of people driving fast and flying into walls and having a good time but when I jump into Rigs of Rods I realize its a hard to control sticky buggy game with crash errors and graphical hiccups. Some of my cars hardly make it down the street, Some just crash into a wall instantly, Others give a error and crash me to desktop. My final thoughts YouTube is a dirty liar and this game sucks.
game cant run on my bad pc so its bad >:(!!! No. But how do I enable my racing wheel for this game?
[QUOTE=joost1120;32781203]game cant run on my bad pc so its bad >:(!!! No. But how do I enable my racing wheel for this game?[/QUOTE] You have to download a key config for it or make one yourself. What wheel?
Not sure what the exact name is, but it's a thrustmaster one. Has pedals and has those weird things behind the wheel itself too, but they broke off.
[QUOTE=joost1120;32781203]game cant run on my bad pc so its bad >:(!!![/QUOTE] When I installed this, it installed all DirectX SDK updates from 2006 to 2010.
That means you didn't have them, probably.
