Increased the power of all cranes, so as the loading cranes can lift the loads onto the trucks and the big cranes are useful for recovery/rescue. Along with longer and wider anchors to be compatible with the bigger trucks, anchor's "push" power also increase to counteract the weight of the load more.

Also incorporates extended booms from vyadobra's mod: Snowrunner.mod.io

I have only tested this by subscribing for install. SO SUBSCRIBE TO INSTALL ONLY.

Because of how mods work on this site you have to buy the version of the crane called "Stronger".


Update 1.2.3:

Widened anchors of the small loading cranes, and increased power of the anchor "push". Also increased mass of the big cranes and anchors of all cranes to combat tilting of the trucks.

Attempted to lower the centre of mass for all cranes, don't know if I did it right so may not work.


Note to any truck modders all you have to do to make the truck compatible with these cranes is to give the truck an addon socket for the vanilla game crane and the corresponding one from this mod will be available.

For example: Emils ANK MK38 is compatible with the stronger version of the RU mini crane because it has this in emils_ank_mk38.xml:

I have had issues with mainly the yellow one but sometimes with the blue one depending on truck and how im parked

Try the new version, but there are limits to it, if you are going to full extension with max payload any crane will tip.

Great mod helps out!!! One little thing on the fold out cranes the supports are not enough the crane quickly turns over the truck. Please fix when you have time

As per update 1.2.3, I've tried to address that issue.

Could you tell me which model crane that is?

The author, thanks, everything is well thought out. The only support of the crane when they are extended, their breaks are visible. They don't hold on to a crane, they hang in the air!

Yeah that's because the anchors arent made to extend that far, so nothing I can do ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Can you think of something all the same? ))

Would you consider making this available for all vanilla trucks that have been tweaked that can have a Crane addon?

SparkySct
SparkySct @sparkysct

It is available for all trucks that have the correct addons in their config file, these stronger versions of the cranes are available on some of the modded/tweaked trucks I use but not all, it's all on the truck mod/tweak end as to whether it is compatible. Nothing I can do about it, unfortunately.

I can’t select other vehicles with this mod cranes. There are no attach points visible when using this cranes.

Which crane are you using? Try winching from a truck point and then go back to the crane.

Or i can combine both mods into one, your choice ;´-D

BTW: Courtesy would demand at least mentioning that you modified my mod :-D

Yeah I agree with rtmjrx , makes sense why would you use a crane that in is relatively unstable lifting basics lifts. I dont intend to lift trucks at full extension but like to lift what i do and do it stable. thanks
Reality is in your game play , not what is said to be a mods limit.

Yeah it struggles to lift that big a truck as the duce in the picture but it's just there to prove the point, I made it more for the cranes to be more useful in recovery and to lift small/light trucks.

Well I just put the files into my initial.pak file so I hope it works lol Btw in the truck customize menu where the bed accessories are, there is a big us crane but nowhere do I see the "Stronger" crane to buy.

Yeah, the way I did this mod means it's for subscribe to install so as it can be used in co-op.
