hey everyone..while trying to take a break from my snow mod..i was thinking what is missing from arma..hmmm then i thought about how much time i spend around big rigs in real life..and thought about how useful they are not only in real life but for arma aswell..so i desided to make a arma tractor trailer! and with help of my bud raptor 6 actual..we made this...its a us military tractor trailer..made from a m235 cab(5ton) with a flatbed. i came up with the idea of useing the 5ton as the cap because in mine and raptor 6's experance in the military..we have seen these in real life..and me knowing alot about tractor trailers and working with them all day..i know abit about how they work, what they look like and all that good stuff! so from pics we found on the internet, we started to make the modified m235 cab(which in real life..and like mine are just the frame of a m235(5ton) put on a standard peterbuilt(or other type of civy truck) drivetrain...or what ever that stuff is called! so last nite we spent the time by modeling these to the best we could here is what we have so far(pic below)!

Pics:

http://screenshot.xfire.com/screenshot/natural/da995f9fdca1d448652d6b743ba4a445df66553a.png

current status:

its ingame..but with no aniamations(no turning or wheel movements)
we plan to make many versions..the first 2 being a flatbed and boxbed trucks..but armed and uparmored versions will follow..including different types of trailer...in camos and greens..and maby for a few different countrys

things needed done:

.we need someone to animate it and make it turn where the trailor and cab connect! @Gnat this is all you buddy..only your alsome skills can save this!

.some new textures are needed for the flatbed, and boxbed trailors(needs re-uvmaped...to make the trailor have its own textures, but i cant uvmap yet)

.need help with making newer and different types of trailer...like the newer type of "lowboy" trailers.

.needs scripts to hold cargo..like tanks and so on!

.and much more to come as this progresses

now i can do most of this but with low standards as im still not that good yet! but anyone willing to help please contact one of us asap. i hope to make this into something the whole comunity will enjoy

very nice indeed , send me a copy and i will animate it for ya no problem. been looking for something like this for ages.

i will have to do it so they are attached tho and it wont require any scripts , maybe norrin or someone else can make you a detached script version , i dont have time at the moment to do a script.
i already have the configs and model cgfs for one but i never had a good model.

EDIT
Sorry havent seen its for arma 1 sorry , i have uninstalled A1 .

Honestly, I think it would be easier to release this for ArmA 2 because of the attachTo scripts.

However I respect your decision and the fact that if you release it for ArmA first, then it will be even better for ArmA 2.

na man this is going to be for arma2 aswell...i will even let someone port it for you guys when its done(as if u wait for me...you'll be waiting a nother year for me to get a2..lol) and ill be happy to let you work magic on it!

@]NTRUDER thanks man, dont worry the snow mod is still on..and im still making snow textures for us! will talk to you more later when i have something for ya!

@Deanosbeno thanks man im very happy you desided to waste your much need time on my stuff...thats very thoughtful of you, and when done both me and everyone in the comunity will be happy with your work..right now the model is only done in the first lod, but im making all the rest now..plus im no were near a good modder so the model its self will probly not be a high quility model, but im sure it will be much better in future releases..plus im sure someone will want to help me make the model better quility..but for now im sure everyone will enjoy just a basic big rig..so once i get the model a tad bit done(all the lods) then ill send u a copy asap! thanks man...also im the one who asked emery to contact you about you know what(as i dont want to say it incase we can do it..dont want to disapoint everyone..lol! but if u still have it or even have a copy thats not opned in o2..please send it anyways, as a hint of what i mean..im talking about for my 'snow mod'!

@nightrain thanks man yeah, i figured when i get it to a2, it will be a much easyier project! and many thanks for yours and everyone elses support..i hope this atleast will be useful to some extent!

p.s. any suggestions or ideas are welcome..also i can(if i had the skills) model a big rig from scratch...as i have one parked infront of me as i write this...so i have a great deal of knowlage..but lack of skill so if someone can help make this better..i can provide nice first hand pics of the real thing(not military version tho....but i do no for a fact that the mili m235(5ton) cab, is just thrown on top of a standerd modern mack drive frame..) so with the help of a skilled modder and my first hand knowlege we could make top quility addons out of this



@foxhound could you please change my topic tittle to say "U.S. Military Tractor Trailers For Arma1 and Arma2" please?
thanks much an advance

I could help with the models and textures, but as you know to get the trailer to work well you'll need to do it in A2, tho there are options in A1.

Looks great cant wait to use it and i also agree with motorbreath in the idea of making a M1070 Super HETT that would be amazing.
