  • because they're lightweight and compact, except for height. running 855 horsepower outta that. total powerpack weight, gearbox excluded is about 1 ton. as you can see, because of the radials' height, i had to put the gearbox midship and make the turret rather high. this is why i make so many tanks with acf; they're an engineering challenge. i'd say there's more fun in designing and building them rather than using them. [editline]8th February 2012[/editline] early war shermans, m3 lees, stuarts, and hellcats all used radials in ww2, too.

How on earth are you making ANYTHING useful with them? I try making trucks and crawlers (and my beetle) with them, but it's basically useless... what I need is a low gear, and some drive gears, but if I try making the gears on ACF low it just sort of spazzes and makes funny repeating noises, if I try to tune it better, I'm stuck on the same spot, and higher gears don't do anything... I'm just not getting anywhere with them (proof in Alteran's video of us making a C304) and it's not "realistic" enough for gmod. I want to press "W" and go forward and the car listens...

  • Engines are too mainstream, I use E2. That's how dad did it, that's how America does it, and it's worked out pretty well so far. /hipster Also isn't it kind of cheating to put your drivewheels inside your armor? It's a nice tank, I like the turret. Very compact.

  • Haha, that took a long time. I think I remember seeing pictures of it back from V2 when we had the contraption section. Looks good, I love the lines of it and the vents on the side. And I can see it's Mustang, though it doesn't seem to relate all too much to it. Is it a special version that I haven't heard of or something (mind sharing ref picture if you have one?). Looks good, though.

  • That is a revolutionary advancement in gmod technology. Thank you for your research into effective melon destruction devices. :smile:

  • So I've been trying for 2 days now to get the tools listed in the op and gmod.org is still down. What is goin on? Does anybody have mirrors or would like to repackage them? I'm tryin to get the fading door tool, makesphereical, Karbine's multiparent, no colloide all, and Wenli's Tools.

  • Yup. Someone needs to seriously make that LoL gamemode so that truck has some serious uses. By the way, how much weight[before dragging] can be loaded on her?
