Double winch for multiplayer

Double winching would be nice so if u get stuck and one person cant get you out you can winch to 2 people i have already been in a lot of situations that it could be usefule and i know alot of people that feel the same

+1 I agree, having the ability to winch while another driver winches off you would prove beneficial.

I would really like this.

Agreed 100%. It is marketed as a simulator after all. Number of winches should only be limited by number of vehicles. And x2 for each vehicle. (Front and rear winches are common.)

+1 But i understand it from the devs point of view. With mutliple winches you'd be able to hook your 'jeep' to a tree and then pull a loaded truck out of the mud or water. This would in "real life" tear you car to pieces.

Perhaps winch power can be adjusted according to vehicle class.

@yo-dude that not what people want it for and obviously the comunity does want double winches wich is pretty legit... And either way when winching the big trucks the jeep couldnt pull it and i dont think 2 could even pull out a big truck... But would be nice to pull people out of rivers and big mud holes especially because the uaz's dont drive over anything

I think there is no need for double winch.
every thing else is to easy

Im doing my shit this way:
low power front - with winch you can power up the car in the back so you dont get stuck
high power back- for pushing the low powerd one if he gets stuck

small car winching fipped big one with a tree/stump/rock inbetween

Longer Winch if you not in drive would be ok.

I agree, was playing with 2 of my friends the other night and got one truck hi centered on a stump. 3 empty fuel trucks, a detached trailer, and finally the Big 8x8 later it came loose. If we could have winched in unison. Stuck truck-----> truck-----> another truck I think we could have broke him loose alot easier. In real life wheeling situations this happens. Got a truck stuck on a long incline another truck hooks up in front an anchor Truck hooks up at top to help both inclined trucks.

+1, I feel the same way

i think theres not a need for a double winch, as to that would be over powered. but if we got a "chain" added as a attachment for different cars that would be perfect. you could have somebody chain to you, while you winch to a tree or something. that would balance it out. so you could even use multiple "chains" so you could use two jeeps to get one big rig unstuck. how does this sound?

Been there, done that. I'm all for switching my vote (even though there is no true vote) to using chains instead of two winches.
We've had to chain two Jeeps together to anchor out a K5 Blazer.

double winching would be nice and very cool feature, but i feel the same. it really is not needed and there is no real use for it. everything can be done with one winch, even more so now that the trucks have side winch points.

i think though if something like this was to be a feature it should only allow one winch to work and the second one as a static anchor would be a good balance between the two.

I think some people here only have half a brain.

Needed? Unbalanced? Wrt is that crap? The game is labeled as a simulator. A simulator where you play with 4 friends, and any thing you do in that session only effects those 4 people, and nothing else.

Dont like double winch? Dont use it if it gets added. Its that simple. Anything else about balance and needed is idiotic and childish.

Yep, I think the same: One winch and rest static. In MP of four players, 1st have a winch, rest have static cables. That could make happy everybody...

Watch your language please...

What do you mean static cable... I just want to be able to winch 2 trucks together to pull a different one out... On multiplayer with my friend's

@mudrunnerr50 to each their own fella. i do like the idea, but just do not feel it is truly needed is all. one winch can do what is needed in the game which is to winch out another truck or winch out the truck you are driving. unless someone is using a ridiculously heavy mod vehicle only one winch is really needed. people want things added to the game, if it happens then it happens if not then it not. these are all just opinions, which you have given yours as well.

@na-shledanou static cable or anchor line, you basicly tie yourself on one end to a tree with a fixed cable (non-winching) and winch to a stuck vehicle. this allows you to winch vehicles towards you without the worry of having the stuck vehicle pull you towards it since you are tied to a non-moving anchor point.

@8up-local can you read? Nope. It doesn't matter if you think its needed or not. And for your pea brained info, had a situation the other day on console, so no heavy mods that youre getting off on, and two vehicles pulling would have been great.

Its labled a SIMULATOR, remember? No? Well, it is. In case you didn't know. And that's the only thing that should matter for this point.

Again, you get in a session with three other people. Any thing you do in that session doesnt effect anyome else what so ever.

If you cant understand that, god help you.

@mudrunnerr50 lol, i guess i no more understand you than you understand me. please show me where it is needed to have double winching. there is none, only people wanting it. now i am not saying they should not put it in the game, just there are things that the game needs done to it before we should start adding in what people are just wanting. now guess what, this is just "all my opinion" not yours which is ok and good to have different opinions, but seriously if you want to keep trash talking like a school kid then be my guest.

@8up-local I honestly have no idea how you can be so damned dence. SIMULATION. Do you comprendé?


He is saying we should simulate after his belongings and try to destroy the Gamephysics so its like the first version*.
Its a Simulation and we simulate having 1 winch in use not ring around with rosie. ^^ (otherwise where is the fun?)

*flying Vehicles everywhere


If Pavel wants us to play ring around with rosie he will make it possible.
I think its not his intention.

@mudrunnerr50 i do understand, but you do not understand me. so i give up. all yours fellas.

@checkmypixel not even close. Yet another person who doesn't seem to know how to read.

@8up-local obviously not. You make 0 good points about not having this as a feature. Why I do or my group does in our session has 0 effect on you. Why do you care how others enjoy the game? It has 0 bearing on how you enjoy it. If it were implentmented, don't use it. It's wouldn't be game changing for everyone.

I dont see what's so hard for you to understand about that.

@mudrunnerr50 why is it so hard for you to understand i am not saying it should not be in the game, but there are other things that should be taken care of first before we start adding these extra features for now? just because i feel it is not needed does not mean it is not wanted. i could care less about how you and your group plays, because i play my own way. now if they want to implement it into the game then fine by me. i would most likely use it myself, but i still do not think it is really needed, just wanted. now why is it you can not understand this point of view and difference in opinion?

if you still do not get it then why am i wasting my time?

@8up-local because I cant possibly fathom why you care so much about it not being needed or whatever. It would be a simple and very quick fix. It wouldn't efffect Any thing else at all. Its not about being needed per se, its a simulator and there is literally no reason for the option not to be there. Game balance should only matter if there are teams vs teams to win something. But there isn't. I'm not saying have a million hp truck in game. But if its realistic, theres no reason not to have this option as well as some others.

If it were labled arcade, my argument would be 180 different. I'd still want it , but would have no real reason besides convience.

@mudrunnerr50 I am afraid that you are wrong at least in one thing.
If that can be implmented by "simple and very quick fix" It would be MOD into a game in ST times long time ago. This is not a first time I hear about multiple winch.
But even when I am far away from full understanding how physics in this game work, my opinion is this is NOT that simple as "find a cell with number of winches, write a number higher than 1, save"
