Zanzurismo said she wanted to see the world so i decided to let her explore, Please be nice to her!

She is sat on air not steel but has no control of ride height but this will not be changed. The engine needs updating with a radiator, fan & new lower poly turbo. May get fitted with a gear stick & the light sign in the back of the cab has had to be removed for now.
The front & rear towbars do work & are good for maneuvering dolly trailers & it makes life a lot easier to reverse a dolly if you are driving forwards. The ballast box has not much weight, i think its only 1 tone at the moment but others will be made from it. You can lift the ballast box with a crane.
It is recommended that you use Semi auto or Manual with the gearbox or the gear change s too fast & it is only going to get worse for the final thing as gear changes will be almost instant like on Voulks KME Predator (I did the Auto gearbox setting for that)

To Do:
  • Replace old lightbars with new ones
  • Do a ballasted version of ballast box
  • Other minor things
Do not ask to mod & release as the answer is no as THIS IS JUST A BETA!
It s pointless but you can put the lightbars & things onto other Scania's but they will all be replaced soon & some others added on.
