Short Story: Recovering the BAT-M
Was on a lumber run when i saw an abonded BAT-M in the woods.
So i jumped out and checked it out.
It was clear, i had to recover that beast. But at first finish the lumber run.
After delivered the lumber, parked the Truck and prepare for rescuing.
Early in the next morning i took the recovery Kraz 260, filled it up and was on the way to the Beast.
Repair works began.
Fired it up for the first time. She runs
Had take a bigger Truck to trag it out of the woods. Found one at a lumber station.
Back on the way and drag her out.
The big Kiro get´s stuck in the mud while trying drag out that heavy best. - DAMN
So it was the first time to take the Beast in action. BAT-M now rescued the poor Kiro while the night fall.
Long day ends, so back to the Garage with the Kraz to get a big 8x8 to haul the BAT home.
Next morning fired up the KZKT and pick up the big flatbed trailer.
Parked the long vehicle and loaded up the BAT-M.
Back on the way to it´s new home.

You guys chosen the wrong game.
This game was all about hauling heavy loads with big rigs through heavy enviroments.
What i want to see is much more different gameplay.
So that you have to bring different cargos (concrete, cement, wood) to build roads and bridges in the forest to get to the lumber yard. Haul heave machines to the construction side to build the roads/bridges.
Then bring harvester, forwarder and logskidder to the lumber yard to cut trees and move the logs out of the deep forest.
After that you can deliver the logs from the lumber yard to the objects.
This brings us a whole bunch of different Trucks, Machines and trailers.
Also different damages would be Nice. Broken radiators, steering, driveshafts, diffs, blown up tires. With some damages you can go ahead but slowly or make it harder and some stops you immediately.
You have take a repair Truck to fix it or haul (on a trailer not a rope like now) it to the next Garage.
A nice feature would be also if we are able to get out of the truck and walk around. Would be cool to see the Truck from first person view and would be great for screenshots.
And of course tracked vehicles! Please give us the BAT-M.
Hi, i want to start here a thread where you can post your Screenshots.
Every topic, funny, realistic, glitches, MODs, your tweaks or just the beautiful scenery.
If you want with a short description and the level where the shot was taken.
I start with some tweaks i did to the C-6317 (level: The Valley)
Attachting the Trailer
On the way to the Lumber yard
From tarmac into the wild
Ups, how deep is it?
No problem at all
Now it´s get dirty.
looks like that no one traveld this path for a long time.
Come on little Zetor - you will make it.
So i assume that 90% is lied in your posts.
Dracounus left and please so do you. Should be no problem for you because you think MR is dead so there is no need for you to stay on this form. Also no other modder has ideas in your opinion.
Follow him on his FB page and be his fanboy.
But don´t tease us with 457 threads of how great Dracounis is.
Dankeschön (falls du das verstehst)
For me it´s perfectly fine. The most trucks have just 6x4 where you even can´t drive in the mud.
When you want it realistic there should be more gravel roads but so we have tarmac.
I will use the skidder or forwarder to move the logs from the mud to the beginning of a suitable road for the 6x4 Trucks, then load it up to the trucks and bring it to the lumber mill.
When you use the Western Star for it it´s way too easy, this thing is a beast and can haul log longs thru every mud section.
Oh yes! American machines from the 50´s - my favourite era (look at my real hobbies and you know why).
And also a new american map, great!
Thanks Guys you did a good job here. Can´t wait to drive this old GMC beast.
But one last wish for MR1 - please fix the missing front driveshaft on the Ford F150!
