    Rigs of Rods is a free, open source, soft body physics simulator.
    It has car physics similar to grand theft auto - only much, much more realistic.

    [h2]Vehicles[/h2]
    There's a wide assortment of vehicles - Cars, to Trucks, to Tractors, to Planes.
    Yep, there's planes.
    But even if you're not satisfied with all that the game comes with, you can download more
    cars from the official website.

    [h2]Physics[/h2]
    Rigs of Rods is a soft body physics simulator. That means that it simulates objects that have compression,
    elasticity, force, and more things. Perfect for cars. So the physics in Rigs of Rods are very accurate.
    Not all cars have this, though. Most of the street cars have it.

    [h2]Gameplay[/h2]
    There's no real goal to this "game". It's a sandbox. You spawn cars, you drive them, you crash them.
    The controls aren't the most accurate, and most cars will swerve off the road if you actually try to drive them.
    There's a multiplayer component, so you can play with your friends. Keep in mind that this is still in development,
    so there's a ton of bugs.

    [h2]Content Creation[/h2]
    Have an idea for a vehicle you'd like to add? You can do it yourself, easily!
    Over at the Rigs of Rods wiki, they have a ton of tutorials to help you get
    started modeling, scripting, and texturing!

    So if you have an idea, head over to the Rigs of Rods wiki!
    [h2]Download[/h2]
    The best part about Rigs of Rods? It's free! Everything, from the client to the content to the source code, is
    100% free and open source.

    So what are you waiting for? Download it now!

    Download them from the site and drop the zips into a certain folder which I can't remember right now. Plenty of vehicles available.

    Wasn't there a thread already? I occasionally play this game as a way to waste time. Great fun to screw around in. Especially seeing how badly you can fuck up your car.

    Is there something I have to do to turn ABS on/off? I just slammed the brakes on in an MZ2 from about 200kph and the wheels locked up entirely.

    Also I flipped and crashed and died and now there is car everywhere.

    Anti-lock braking system. It helps to stop you from "flipped and crashed and died and now there is car everywhere"

    Move your curser to the top and you should see a menu bar. All the way to the left is where you spawn cars.

    Does anybody else think the handling sucks. I was going 50 mph and went to turn and my car did a full 360.

    Your car isnt going to like you very much if you hold the throttle open and put it in full left lock while doing 80kph over what was presumably grass. You're driving with a keyboard, aren't you?

    How do I use my racing wheel for this? It has no real controller config, except for input.map, but how do I know what everything is called?

    I watch the videos of people driving fast and flying into walls and having a good time but when I jump into Rigs of Rods I realize its a hard to control sticky buggy game with crash errors and graphical hiccups.
    Some of my cars hardly make it down the street, Some just crash into a wall instantly, Others give a error and crash me to desktop.

    My final thoughts
    YouTube is a dirty liar and this game sucks.

    You have to download a key config for it or make one yourself. What wheel?

    Not sure what the exact name is, but it's a thrustmaster one. Has pedals and has those weird things behind the wheel itself too, but they broke off.

    Very nicely made, kudos to you.

    Also, the cars feel like they are made of biscuit. I imagined it would be harder to break up a car than this.

    This is still damn fun! :D

    The first time I launched this, I went on screwing around getting a lot of vehicles stuck. Then I hit Esc in hope of a menu, shows up that it seems to be the "quit game" button. I also realized that the handling on the vehicles was terrible, but I guess that may be because I used a keyboard. Through, the cars did feel like they were filled with helium, each time I turned the vehicle spins around ending in extreme button tapping.

    I found the controls a bit unusual, once I enter a vehicle I expect W to be accelerate, but, in contrast to the character controls, it isn't. I also had no idea on how to fly an airplane/helicopter, after I finally found a way to make it move forward, I "flew" straight forward and fell into a river. Through, I guess most of my complains is on user-created content (which I downloaded with the game) and that is mostly limited collision, bad handling and a lot more.

    Through, if I look away from the user-created stuff and the highly unadaptable controls, there is a lot of great things about this game such as the advanced collision system and the variety of it. I mean here is a game where you can do anything with vehicles such as driving fast around a track, causing a lot of damage to a vehicle, stack boxes with cranes and fly an airplane. This game really have some potential.

    Edited:

    I should probably also mention that I have never driven any vehicle before, so all of my experience on how they work is by looking at other people drive or through videogames like this one.

    Really depends on who made the car as to how realistically it's represented. I'd say Gabester's cars are spot on with the crashes. Don't forget to pay attention to your actual speed (press t) when you hit something, because this game gives you a poor perception of how fast you're going. When I think I'm doing 60kph when im actually doing 100.

    So many of the cars just flat out don't spawn or crash it, like the Monster truck for me. Is this normal?
