If you like my trucks, any support is highly appreciated. I plan to grow my mod catalog and skills as time goes on.

Inspired by a Doug DeMuro video, I really wanted to add a U500 series Unimog to SnowRunner. This truck is the ultimate overlander. A bruiser of a farm truck. An off-road icon. And now another generation of a popular truck is in SnowRunner for you to enjoy. Please read all the sections below for details.

Some features the UMG500 has:

  • Selectable AWD
  • Locked differentials
  • Vehicle customization
  • Realistic winch and crane points
  • Multiple tire options
  • No region or level lock

Please note that some pictures on the right include development pictures, and the final version of the truck may differ.

Please note: All my mods are console compatible, however Saber & Focus are selecting vehicles manually, so it is up to them whether they approve them. There is no submission process on the modder's end. If you want to see my trucks on console, let them know on the official Discord or Forum. In other words, please don't ask me in the comments if it's coming to console, because I don't know. Any comment that says "Add it to console" or "Console when" will be deleted.

I have the strongest engine installed, with crawler gear box. After some driving, whenever I stop and start. either to go in reverse or to pull off from a stop. The vehicle wants to start going in the opposite direction than intended, for a few feet. It then corrects itself. If I start out in High/Low, and then shift to Auto. It doesn't happen. I believe you have a ratio problem with first gear. I run into this similar problem with most mods who created a customer gearbox.

dninja87 @dninja87

it does it with the IX gearbox as well. Especially after the first instance of putting it reverse. The special offroad is doing the same as the crawler, all though not nearly as long of travel.

maxmike181 @maxmike181

That gearbox is the same ratio set I use in many of my trucks. That is actually a known grip coefficient bug in the game engine. When too much torque is applied the game freaks out a bit. It is more related to tires than anything else believe it or not. I recommend either downsizing the engine one, or picking a different tire.

eclipse538 @eclipse538

you could try to increase body friction of your tires a bit and asphalt. 100+ for asphalt and 7-9 for body friction, keep the substance friction at 2.0-3.0 max and maybe raise the mass a bit of the vehicle to like 6000-7000ish, stiffen the suspension a tiny bit, only .05 max from what it is, increase the damping to .5+, and raise the height to compensate for the increased mass. I tune nearly all of the mods I d/l like this and the trucks feel so much more realistic imo and with the right transmission/engine combination, no weird traction glitches. try it before you knock it.

Eversman @na2052238

maxmike181 Will you add portal axles?

maxmike181 @maxmike181

No. These are collision free axles so aside from the visuals, there would be no affect on in game performance.

Stazco @stazco

snowrunner axles are not collision free, its lazy modders who make them so..


maxmike181 @maxmike181

Ah you're right I must be lazy. Let me see your mods so I can learn from a true master. Oh wait...

Armoredp @armoredp

Lazy? I'm pretty sure it's nothing to do with that. It's more of a choice.

At first the Unimog was one of the most wanted vehicals, and only about 10-11 months lather, we get some. But at least we have Unimogs now, and also three, so that's a plus.

Now just a Licence from Daimler so Saber can use the Mercedes Brand.

Armoredp @armoredp

Honestly his game has an amazing modding community, it's all a matter of time and I bet every vehicle that should be in this game, will be. the only limiting factor has been the devs (for console mods that is) Of course they have other issues to deal with as well.

Johnnyholster @johnnyholster

Great👍 Third unimog and this is finally the model I was looking for! Hope it makes it’s way on console as fast as his older brother!

SSL1PKN0TT @ssl1pkn0tt

This looks awesome! Doug Demuro’s videos are awesome as well lol

maxmike181 @maxmike181

Thanks! I want to do the extended cab at some point in the future too

Armoredp @armoredp

Lol then we can use the exact Unimog he reviewed :P. Awesome work!
