three vehicles have been added to the freebie site – the rocket seen on the sim-on-a-stick site for versions 0.7.3 and 0.7.3.1 and included in the 0.7.3 build, the skid steer loader that was in the 0.7.2 version, and the presonal gyro rider (oddly similar to the Segway)
the rocket stays the same with its mad number of prims - anyone interested in seeing sphere duplicating, dimpling and cutting carried out to the extreme could write a paper using this rocket!
the skid steer loader has been slightly reworked and uses a smaller texture than the original (only 483 bytes!). the texture is freely available with no strings attached from my small texture library on flickr. if you download any, make sure to always grab the original as those maintain transparency (actions > view all sizes > original > download the original size of this photo). i removed the anti-slip step dotted texture and tire textures and used bump mapping with discs and bricks to achieve a similar look
the personal gyroscopic rider was heavily reworked to make it look a less bulky and a bit more like a Segway while maintaining a mid-century modern look
i’m not certain why (i think it’s just changes in scripting support) but the scripts i used in the skid steer loader and gyro rider no longer work so they are not included =\
stay-tuned for more additions and have fun! =)
