A NEW VERSION

A new "no-spill" version is available: Snowrunner.mod.io

High-Saddle compatible trailers with 6/8/10-slot capacity and a low-saddle 4/8-slot: packable 2/3/4/5-slots on lower level and loose 3/4/5-slots on upper level. Double decker style. Can be configured as a road-train with extension trailers.

Note, only the "universal" trailer (or the pup) can be attached to other trailers.

Other mods in this collection:


Theoretically you could have an infinite number of trailers in the train.

Practically you can only have two. But you still have your winch for normal use, so that's good.

⚠ GAME LIMITATION WORKAROUNDS

For greatest enjoyment please use within limits of the game:

  • a train longer than two trailers will not work as it will not move: the end trailer has inactive physics (second image below).

Please note: the extension trailers will "pop-out" of their socket when the hitch-angle is too great: just be conscious of this and everything will work out. If this happens to you when you're out on a delivery, usually just using the front trailer's winch sockets (at top of trailer) is sufficient to re-seat the "pin" in "hitch".

MAKE A TRAIN

NOTE: A train longer than two trailers will not work as it will not move: the end trailer has inactive physics.

Attach an "universal" extension trailer to a trailer in front of it.

Winch the rear trailer's "pin" into the front trailer's "hitch". Alternatively use a crane. Make sure the extension trailer's feet are up.

Can use a support truck crane or the winch points at top of front trailer.

  1. "TRAILER CONTROL" => "HITCH" to the "out" position
  2. winch the trailer's "pin" into the "hitch"
  3. wiggle it in with the truck
  4. make sure the "pin" drops down
  5. "TRAILER CONTROLS" => "HITCH" to the "in" position

OPERATE "UNIVERSAL" EXTENSION TRAILER

The high-saddle "main" trailer and the "universal" trailers have same features.

Both are high-saddle compatible and all features are operated when connected to a truck.

The "universal" extension trailers sit a bit higher but can also be attached to other trailers.

To move a "universal" extension trailer from truck to a hitch on another trailer, use a crane -- make sure the extension trailer's feet are up:

Are there hitch contols on console version i cant conect a train stuggling to use this mod

AF
afry20000 @afry20000

Excellent Mod Thanks for Sharing!!! - I have a suggestion to allow you to auto load/unload the second trailer, If the trailer is actually a truck you can still tow it by manually hitching it, then when you need to unload just switch to that truck to auto load/unload, hopefully that makes sense :)

So you just need to convert the trailer to a truck so you buy it the shop (easy to do) and should be good to go, I can help if you need it :)

It also might unbrick the third trailer

AF
afry20000 @afry20000

I was able to get it working myself (a bit rough) just to see what happens and yes a truck and trailer can tow a truck and trailer (3 trailers - no winches)

(above drives fine and you can switch to the middle trailer (which is actually a truck) and auto load/unload the second and third trailers

I tried 4+ trailers but that becomes a brick

Here is the rough truck file conversion if you would like to use it

MrSkladak @mrskladak

Oh I see, the issue, at least with how I use these trailers, is that I cannot attach them like a normal trailer to a truck if I want to. In my playthrough I sort of switch the trailer to be an A or a B depending on the logistics at hand.

I'll hold off going down this route.

BUT.

Feel totally free to take this stuff and release your own public revision for people to use 👍. All my stuff is MIT licensed and you can use how you see fit.

MS
MrSkladak @mrskladak

This sounds like it will let the B-trailers winch around corners in a tight spot too.

This makes it sound like a great improvement all around.

MS
MrSkladak @mrskladak

Hey this is great. I'll take a look, I see you included a drive link.

If you want, all the stuff is open-sources so you can just create a PR:

Github.com

I'll try it out 👍.

С выходом 7-го сезона перестала работать кнопка "D" в управлении. Она даже не показывается. На всех ваших прицепах.

MS
MrSkladak @mrskladak

Not sure what the "D" problem could be. Everything seems to work OK.

MS
MrSkladak @mrskladak

Hmm, OK, will have to take a look. Thanks.

MrSkladak, Could we please have the old 4/8 "A-Double" trailers as well as the new ones please?
They was my fav trailer to use.
cheers

MS
MrSkladak @mrskladak

ajking.1971, apologies that was a mistake on my part. The old trailer is back but under a new name "goose".. I apologize if I caused problems.

"Warning Unknown problem" pop-up
When attempting to load or pack long logs onto 5 slot, tried manually loading with three logs but wouldn't pack either.
Problem solving attempt: Tried to detach and attach trailer, to no avail, issue still persists.

MS
MrSkladak @mrskladak

Swooz777, I have a different set of trailers for long logs that I use, please check those out. This 5/10 slot won't pack logs.

Javeman21 @dlarsen1964

MrSkladak i have a suggestion with your trailers.. can you make a trailer pack with this one and the log trailers and the pup trailers all in one???

MS
MrSkladak @mrskladak

I wondered about that. Is there a benefit to bundles? I think for me it might be harder to manage if I need to update.

Javeman21 @dlarsen1964

okay no problem. and thank you for your time.

Note to the DEV - There is an easy fix for this,
in the file quintuple.xml
Change:
ParentFrames="Body_cdt,Body_cdt,Body_cdt, Body_cdt"
To:
ParentFrames="Body_cdt,Body_cdt,Body_cdt, Body_cdt, Body_cdt"

MS
MrSkladak @mrskladak

Heh, indeed, not sure why that is. It's the one cargo that does this I think.
