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)!

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

If you're having difficulty trying to articulate the cabin and trailer, there was a good addon for OFP of a civilian truck with this feature, you could try converting the script smile.gif
It'll probably be easier than trying to animate it, and won't have have as many bugs...
