THIS TRUCK IS SUNSETTED, AND WILL NOT BE GETTING ANY UPDATES


The White Western Star is a popular truck within the Snow*Runner community, however it really never won my heart. It always seemed a little lacking to me. This mod started out as a bit of a gag but ended up being one of my more involved XML tweaks.

This mod replaces the WWS standard "Old US" engine line-up with the brawny engines from it's big sister, the TwinSteer. The CrawlerBox HD transmission has also been added. I've also beefed up the suspension to match the "Heavy Hauler" designation, and added the Heavy Truck winch suite. An expanded selection of heavy tires is present as well.

I have modified the vehicles weight and centre of gravity to compliment and represent the new powertrain. New visual and performance customization options have been added for the off-road look, and a taller snorkel as well as a roof rack. Multiple spare tire mounts can be equipped if you choose.

This truck has been thoroughly tested and does fall a bit on the OP side, but it is a different twist on an old classic.


Mods over base WWS:
- TwinSteer engines
- Modified suspension
- Heavy winches
- Added snorkel
- Small amount of rear steer
- More tire options
- More visual mods


I recommend getting FOXCRF450RIDER's Off Road Trailers mod to compliment the increased ride height. Stock has been increased a little bit, and lifted a lot.


Version History:

Nov 15 2020 - X.1.0.0

Base truck updated to version 10.X with console compatibility
- New customization options
- Custom, more powerful, top-tier engine

All versions prior to X.1 have been removed

Could you add the log carrier for phase 3 logging since this truck was historically a strong log hauler?

Cool mod, well tuned truck. But please add twin tailpipes. And bumpers from Navistar 500, as well as a standard snorkel from it.

This truck is sunsetted, it will only be getting bug fixes when required.

In what sense is it obsolete? What must be the need? You've made an almost perfect mod for Western Star 4964, it just lacks two important visual details. Please update the mod after seasonal content # 3 and add double pipes and a powerful bumper from Navistar. Thanks for the job anyway.

Not so much that it's obsolete, it's just that I'm focusing more on custom trucks now and only plan to occasionally work on the back catalog. I have rolled back the full sunsetting of the tweaks, but they aren't high-priority. So a solid maybe.

Really like your mods wondering if you guys can look into making a tow truck mod. for tow truck rescue mods. I really love you guys mods can't wait to see new ones.

Check out the new tow-ready truck: M181 Freightliner M916A1 "Oni" -Enhanced

Hey. If you're looking for a full on tow truck, PuppyMaster_aka_DW77's iX Wrecker is the way to go. However if you're looking for a a tweak truck by me, the Enhanced Chevy Kodiak K70 "SuperTruck" VX M181 has a rear recovery boom, and will be getting another towing boom in Phase 2. I am also working on a Freightliner M916A1 tow truck that will be coming in Phase 2 as well.

Great truck only downfall is when the front wheel gets stuck in concrete barriers

Было бы неплохо добавить ему в багажник на крыше запчастей для ремонта.

I tried every rack with repair parts in the game and none of them fit the roof. I could add them to the rack it has but I like having things make in-game sense. So far the best option is the utility mount the truck has.

Я перепробовал все багажники с запасными частями в игре, и ни одна из них не подходила для крыши. Я мог бы добавить их в багажник, но мне нравится, что в игре есть смысл. Пока что лучшим вариантом является крепление, которое есть в грузовике.

Грузовик очень нравится! Спасибо! Использую его в основном как седельный тягач. Попробовал один раз с бортовой платформой зацепить прицеп, так не получилось, пишет, что мешает платформа. Как она может мешать, я не понял - она даже не выпирает... Но факт остается фактом, прицепы не цепляются при установленном кузове. Не могли бы Вы посмотреть, и исправить, если не трудно?

Thanks for the information. There were a few weird bits of code that needed to be fixed so it should be all good now. The deck should now move when the crane is equipped and only block the trailers when it overhangs. Please let me know if you notice any other weirdness. There were a few other changes that may require selling and re-buying the truck to apply.

Спасибо за информацию. Было несколько странных битов кода, которые нужно было исправить, так что теперь все должно быть хорошо. Теперь палуба должна двигаться, когда кран оборудован, и блокировать прицепы только тогда, когда они нависают. Пожалуйста, дайте мне знать, если заметите еще какие-нибудь странности. Было несколько других изменений, которые могут потребовать продажи и повторной покупки грузовика.

Are there any tires for this that perform well in deep mud? I saw there is no mud tires I can put on it, If I remember correctly. Been a few hours since I played lol

maxmike181
maxmike181 @maxmike181

The P16 tires are a pretty versatile set, however this truck is getting near the point it could use a refresh so perhaps I'll mix things up in the coming weeks.

That'd be pretty slick!
