New trucks: the kind that pull trailers
« on: September 08, 2009, 08:19:13 PM »
I've made some "new" trucks [tractors; the kind that pull trailers (or whatever they should be called...)]
1) based on a Zil 130
2) based on a Volvo F88
This is a first version. Both are in playercolour have no constraints and should be properly aligned.
Included in the zip files: .png .dat and the .pak-file
Improvements / graphic glitches etc are welcome  :)


EDIT  21-10-2009: Removed Volvo .png and .zip.  New versions of these files in post #6 of this thread.

Wow, nice! Somehow I remembered you as the guy who paints huge trucks, so this is an interesting change...

And welcome back! :)

Thanks for welcoming me back 8)  I've not really been away, just had very little time...

Now to the trucks: big trucks are a bit easier to create. There are more pixels to work with and thus more opportunities to make them look the way you want. These smaller ones were a bit more challanging. Also modern trucks are bigger then those produced 30 to 40 years back... Maybe I should try trailers; lots of pixels :)

Martin, thanks for the trucks!
Your big Volvos and Scanias are my standard long-distance road carriers.
I think a lot of us will be looking forward to the trailers.

I've reworked the Volvo F88. I had some doubts about the colors being a bit off... I think this version is a lot better  8).

Also for those interested a brand new 20ft container trailer
