Big Boxy Rover Parts


Recommended Posts

Is there any awesome mod I'm missing that adds large high-speed wheels? Something slightly smaller than the huge stock wheels, ideally. I have a kinda-newfound love for making big manned rovers with lots of features and self-sustainability, but I can see them reaching a point where they start to resemble train carriages rather than offroad vehicles due to the finite size of the ruggedised wheel. I could just use TweakScale, but that won't change the wheel's limited suspension travel. I wanna bounce around like the Mako from Mass Effect (most everyone hated it but I'm a fan).

 

I'm also after a boxy cabin like the Orca Transport below. Doesn't have to be from a rover mod. The only cockpits I've thus far found that offer good ground visibility are rounded and I just don't like that look when I build big angular monstrosities that can survive kilometre drops (under Mun gravity, anyway; I wouldn't trust anything with wheels on Kerbin or Eve).

A boxy rover cab that looks like it should have good visibility

And I can't find it again but there was a mod to make wheels faster/more rugged - I think it was just a MM patch - you might look at tweaking config files if you can find a appropriate wheel.

I thought this would be the closest I'd find to what I want. Most of what it does is already covered by other mods I use, besides filling the boxy cockpit critereon... which, dare I say, is actually a bit too big? At least for now I'm aiming at a 2.5m profile; I might use some parts from this, but probably not for rovers. Thanks anyway.

Ohh nice, I did miss something! I think that's almost exactly what I want. No big wheels but tweakscaling the Grizzly should be sufficient; it has the same suspension design as the stock balloon wheels. Looks like I'll have to do my own config though.
