Work in progress on the truck (texture not finished)

What do not show the image is that truck can load various payload. You can mix barrel (and incoming other cargo) on the flatbed.

Cargo will have some content keywords as "oxygen", "fuel" that UCO will recognise and can "eat" to refuel or other. Other addons could also devellop on this subject, I'll provide C++ class ready to use to simply grapple/ungrapple such cargo and get information from them. (would anyone do a "mother ship" that can carry 20 cargos ? :) )

(When I'll update DGIV I'll make that the base Prelude can "eat" also those cargo)

I added also the six wheel support but as thee is no differential one should put it near the rear pivot point else turn may look really strange.



Cheers

Dan

The flatbed looks really good Dan. I like how you can load multiple cargo containers on the back. I also see a lot of potential for a K-loader. We used these to load multiple pallets on C-130 aircraft:

Truck Finished. I think I'll add also a supercar and then finish with modelling.



(there is a hidden message here :) )

Wow, those are incredible Dan. Any chance they'll come in skin-able models like the DGIV?

Not natively (there is already a lot of features, I don't want to release in few month) But adding a skin is just matter of adding a config and renaming mesh & textures. If someone ask I can provide photoshop layered texture.

As I didn't wanted that peoples miss that they can add "normalised" cargo with my SDK class I decide to do a simple mother ship:


UCGO Arrow Freigther

-Lenght 300m
-Landing only on low gravity planet
-Crew of 20 (UMMU)
-Can carry a DGIV like in bay
-Compatible UCGO can carry up to 32 visible cargo.
-No VC or panel yet (but I always wanted to do a mother ship so maybe later ;) )

Cargo do not show they are located in center and I didn't finish this part (work in progress)





Cheers

That's a beauty. Now, if it can be made into a ship of XR/DGIV quality, I might finally have my preferred mothership for deep space operations.

For now it will be only a "demonstrator" of UCGO cargo abilities (C++ class SDK available) but as said I always wanted to make a mother ship. Maybe after the release of UCO but I have also a lot of real work so not before several month.

The project looks very cool so far.

And the mothership looks nice, too.
And however, if it only a demonstrater or not, it's a cool ship.
Keep on working with UCO.

While I've done it for another request I post it here also, comparative size, not too big, not to small :)

WORK IN PROGRESS:
