Grave Digger (monster truck)

#1
There are a lot of Besiege monster trucks knocking around, but I've been disappointed by how innacurate they are to the real thing - both in terms of aesthetics and mechanisms.

This is a replica of the famous Grave Digger monster truck - as accurate as I can make it in Besiege at the moment.





Features:
  • Already mapped for ACM mod (gamepad support - highly reccomended)
  • Long travel 4-link suspension (like the real thing)
  • Anti-roll mechanism (like the real thing)
  • 4 wheel drive (like the real thing)
  • 4 wheel steering (like the real thing) - complete with 3 steering modes if you have the ACM mod: 2 wheel steering, 4 wheel steering, and crab steering (like the real thing) - hold the shoulder buttons of your controller while steering to get the 4-wheel modes
  • Forwards torque bias (like the real thing) - front wheels rotate slightly faster = more stability during forwards driving.
  • Custom 66" x 43" (like the real thing) wheel skin
  • Custom 4-way exhaust (like the real thing) skin
  • Skull & Crossbones flag (like the real thing)
  • Inclined Kingpin steering geometry (don't think the real thing has this - this is more of a way of coping with Beisege's stock wheel colliders not having too much offset...but it's the kind of thing I would expect to see appearing in real monster trucks as technology improves)
This uses:
  • CCCanyon's Black Paint Skin Pack - available from Steam Workshop
  • CCCanyon's Red Paint Skin Pack - available from Steam Workshop
  • My two custom Grave Digger Skin Packs (both are required - they have opposing left/right geometry [Besiege doesn't like negative scaling]) - available from Steam Workshop
  • Does not *require* any mods, but ACM is highly advised in order to control it well. You can use keyboard as normal, but you'll have to be gentle with the controls.

Notes:
It is not as robust as I would like - sometimes the ball links of the suspension system detach (there is no way of strengthening this) - if you want to drive it hard, turn God mode on.
It *should* fit in the bounding box, but doesn't for some reason (think this is probably a bug in Besiege or EasyScale)
