    I got across the northern section with the B-130 ( and a lot of winching) after trying and failing many, many times in the A-3151.
    I didn't try it with the the garage trailer though... I'm going to use the heavier vehicles i've unlocked on the map for towing and logging.

    I got it!! :D :tup:

    After finding my way around the first time I couldn't help but take another shot at it today. Wow.

    I selected the trusty A-3151, and made sure the D-535 spawned on the northern island instead of the B-66. I left the trailers and crossed to the north, avoiding a fight with the current as much as possible. The route I took started from some shallows west of the end of the paved road.

    I unlocked the D-535 and K-700, then drove the D-535 to the fuel station. I recalled the A-3151 to the D-535, then drove the A-3151 to unlock the E-7310, bringing it to the fuel station.

    With the E-7310's large tank filled, I took it on a long journey to bring back both garage trailers one at a time. I could have winched them together, but I played it safe; I even kept off my planned log delivery route to avoid digging it up too much. Along the way, I recalled the A-3151 a few more times to collect watchpoints for water depth mapping. On one of the return trips, I brought the K-700 over for a fuel-up and took it across.

    With everything on the far side, I loaded the D-535 with a bed and trailer of short logs, and the E-7310 with a trailer of short logs, for nine points. I still didn't relax until those logs were safely on land on the east side! :lol:

    I have three more maps to complete with one star, but they should be a breeze by comparison... :crazy:

    Cheater! :p
    They are. I think Island isn’t even remotely close of beeing a challenge. The same goes for Seashore and, depending on what truck that spawns on the south side, Crossing.

    I think I’ll try start Deluge with one of the small 4x4’s tonight...even if it’s a bit of cheating :p;)

    Mudrunner One Star.jpg

    What a mess I got myself into for the last game! Coming back to The Bog for my final one star run, I was feeling confident and decided to collect the My Only Love trophy while I was at it, so I took the C-256.

    I equipped myself with the crane + short log assembly, and towed a short log trailer on a winch cable (the crane blocks the trailer hitch). The first run with the trailer was a very close call on fuel, but after pulling it off I figured the second run without the trailer would be easier. It was a near total disaster.

    In the dark, I inadvertently dug myself into a set of ruts that were too far from any tree to winch myself out. I was screwed, and had nothing but the crane...so I started pushing and clawing! :lol: Out of determination I actually managed to pivot the rear end over, finding just enough traction to reverse out, barely. It took a while, but the success was worth the struggle -- Spintires in a nutshell. :D

    I am doing something horribly wrong as it took me 4 hours and 20 minutes to complete the first map :crazy::lol:

    At about 3 hours playtime, on the way to bring my second and last load of middle long wood to finish (dont know how sägewerk is called in english) my loading truck rolled over at a waterish area when i tried to Drive around some deep water and underestimated the weight of the load:sick:

    Then i drove there with my crane truck and tried to rescue the loading truck with the crane and guess what, that thing rolled over too while i fooled around with the crane fully extended :mad:

    Then it finally clicked in my head and i towed both trucks upright with the winch on the K700 :idea:

    After that both trucks rolled over again while trying load the wood and drive away and i had to tow and load again....

    Played on simulation mode, its really something special when you have to do everything yourself in that game, like it :)

    Just fired this up and finding it a little weird so far. I aced all of the maps in the original Spintires but am finding there is more of a tendency for vehicles to get bogged/dig-in with this. The first challenge was a total ballache trying to reverse the trailer into place until I realised it was far easier to turn around behind the parking spot and drive forwards into it (even though it tells you to reverse) and now I am trying the hill challenge and bizarrely if you click "start tutorial" you can't even get your car out of the river (even though you have clearly already started the dang tutorial). However if you don't click it and engage diff lock and AWD you can crawl away relatively easily. Just don't stop to remove that prompt/button. Not cool.

    I'm finding the opposite myself, the original game felt much more aggressive in terms of the mud being sticky and deep, at least in a few of the original iterations when it was in early access. I also remember when the branches on the road would stop your truck every few feet :lol:

    New update available. Looks like wheel support has been added as well as an option to center the camera on the truck. Also when in cockpit mode you can look behind the truck, when looking to the far left the character actually rests his arm on the door and sticks his head out the window. :tup:

    I agree now I've got going, the main campaign with default vehicles and on casual setting isn't too difficult, but I was referring to those specific challenges and initial settings, which were weird for something that was a tutorial.

    I guess if you have the time, re-try the first challenge by actually reversing the trailer into position, then try the hill challenge, click the "tutorial" button immediately to get rid of it then try to pull away out of that stream/river.

    It seems to me like the heavier trucks aren't as capable as before, while the lighter vehicles like the A-469 actually have a shot at getting somewhere compared to the original release.

    But any differences are compounded by me switching from a KB+M to the DS4 with analog throttle control.

    Hello all!

    It's now been just over two months since Spintires: MudRunner launched, and it's our absolute pleasure to announce the first DLC for Spintires: MudRunner, The Valley.

    We currently plan for this first DLC to release in February. It will be a free content update, and available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. This first DLC will include brand new content for the game, in many different forms. Firstly, it will introduce a brand new map, also called The Valley, which is a very large heavily forested map. Similar to Deluge in the base game, you will start outside of a garage, and will need to claim one for yourself.

    In addition to a brand new map, we will also be introducing three new powerful vehicles. These three vehicles can be used on any map, provided you have enough progression points unlocked. Like for other maps and their specific vehicles, you won't have to spend points to use these vehicles in The Valley.

    There will be the A-969, a powerful 4x4 vehicle, specially adapted to the heavily forested terrain of The Valley.

    The C-6317, a six-wheeled truck able to sport a wide arrangement of add-ons.

    And the E-7429, a very large 8x8 truck with a special hidden talent. We'll have more information on each of these vehicles in the lead up to release, in weekly vehicle presentations and factsheets once again.

    Not only will there be new vehicles and a new map in The Valley, but there will also be eight new addons.

    These are as follows:

    • C-6317 Spare Wheel
    • A-969 Spare Wheel
    • A-969 Fuel Canisters
    • A-969 Garage Parts
    • A-969 Utility Attachment
    • E-7429 Advanced Trailer Hitch
    • E-7429 Repair Kit
    • E-7429 Garage Semi-Trailer (Also compatible with the E-7310 from the base game)
    • Medium log trailer (compatible with some trucks from the base game)
    For the modders out there, there will be some more assets for you to play with when making your maps and vehicles!

    These are:

    • E-7310 trailer hitch
    • A broken tree asset, which is currently only used on the The Valley
    • A dirt road terrain overlay type, which is also currently only used on The Valley
    Players will be able to muck around in The Valley as soon as the DLC is installed, so if you've just got the game, and not finished other maps, don't worry! You can get stuck into The Valley all the same.

    Your goals on The Valley will be similar to classic maps, unlocking other garages and lumber mills around the map.

    We look forward to sharing you more about the DLC as time goes on!

    That's not all, though! In addition to this new DLC news, we'd like to say that we plan on doing a monthly community update for you all, sharing what we're working on, and introducing some cool things that we've seen from the community.

    Talk to you soon!

    A-969? What could it be?..

    Perhaps... LuAZ 969? Powerful? :lol:
    [​IMG]

    This thing has the same engine as the ZAZ 968M ("A-968m" in the game) - 45 hp air-cooled V4.


    "C-6317" - that could be MAZ 6317, a 6x6 truck used by the Belarusian military. From the creators of "D-537" and "E-7310".
    The engine power is 330 or 420 hp, depending on the version.
    [​IMG]
    It already exists as a mod in Steam Workshop.

    "E-7429" - that's probably Volat MZKT 7429.
    Powered by a 470 hp V8.

    @Rage Racer In the game files they are labeled as: LuAZ-969M, MZKT 7429, MAZ 6317. So your guesses were correct.

    Is this map "very large" because it's bigger than the others? A free new map is great, even better if we can expect some more. :)

    Vehicle Description

    The second 8x8 vehicle to be added to Spintires: MudRunner, the E-7429, is another incredibly powerful vehicle, with some hidden talents.

    Game Stats

    The E-7429 has a fuel capacity of 800L and features all-wheel drive, as well as a toggleable differential lock.
    It can take up to 600 units of damage. Immediately unlocked on The Valley, but costing 5 balance points on other maps, once unlocked, the E-7429 is a vehicle that will cut it where most others won't.


    Strengths

    The E-7429 is brilliant for crossing difficult terrain and can pull vehicles across powerful currents with no issues. It'll also get difficult loads where you to need get them.

    Weaknesses

    The E-7429 is a definite gas guzzler and isn't the fastest vehicle. What it lacks in speed, though, it makes up for in strength.

    Attachments

    The E-7429 is a powerful logging vehicle, and so carries with it important attachments for getting vehicles out of tough spots. It's also the largest vehicle able to pull trailers, making it a very useful utility vehicle.

    These are:

    • Fuel Cistern - Carries Fuel
    • Garage Semi-Trailer - Carries 1 Garage Part
    • Garage Trailer – Trailer that carries 2 Garage Parts
    • Log Carrier – Carries Medium Logs
    • Medium Log Trailer - Carries Medium Logs
    • Repair Kit - Allows the vehicle to repair itself, and other vehicles.
    • Short Log Trailer – Carries Short Logs
    • Spare Wheel – Can repair self
    • Trailer Hitch - Allows trailers to be pulled
    • Utility Trailer – Can repair other vehicles

    Real-life Volat MZKT carrying a train carriage.



    The most interesting thing about the LuAZ is its size (similar to a Japanese Kei-car) and weight (960 kg, very light for an off-road car. Not as light as Citroen Mehari though). It will be as fun to crawl around the forest as the A-968M, but the 969M is 4x4 so it will be easier.

    Also, some nice new mods in Steam Workshop:

    Cédric Lagarrigue, Chairman of the FOCUS HOME INTERACTIVE Management Board, said: “We are truly proud to have made MudRunner a force on the international market in such a short period of time. With the studio, we have launched new developments that will enable us to release a “MudRunner USA” extension in a few months, integrating official vehicles made by prestige brands and an American environment. The idea is to make MudRunner into a strong video game franchise, as we did with Farming Simulator.”

    Hope It's true.

    Edit: It is:

    "Hi all, We can confirm that these reports are legitimate, and written by Focus Home Interactive.
    We will have more information on this and more at the What's Next event. You can expect more information in the weeks after that (mid-February)."

    So wait...licensed vehicles?

    I think this supposed Mudrunner USA is going to be the kick in the ass I need to plunk money down on the game.

    That's interesting... Licensed American cars? That's great. We may expect some Ford and Chevy SUV's and pickups to drive. But what about heavier trucks? Do the US make civilian counterparts of 6x6 Ural or KrAZ? I know of military trucks like AM General M939 or Oshkosh M977 HEMTT, but we have a purely peaceful game about logging. When I say "American trucks" I first imagine the chromed highway trucks like in ATS.

    Anyway, would be interesting to see what will the American terrain be like.

    P.S. Shame that the devs didn't get the licenses of the Russian (GAZ, KamAZ, UAZ, Ural, ZiL, Kirovets), Ukrainian (KrAZ, ZAZ, LuAZ) and Belarusian (MAZ, Volat) vehicle manufacurers that are already in the game (and coming in the next update).

    Sorta, we have Western Star which makes off-road heavy-duty trucks.

    As for terrain, I hope the just don't go the route of the Pacific Northwest since that would be really similar to the Russian terrain. Hopefully, we get some deserts or even snow.

    Anyone own a T500 RS and tried it with the game since the most recent update? Unfortunately it is not included under the list of supported wheels for the PS4 but I'm hoping it might still work.

    Edit: I tried it and the T500 RS is not detected in the game. I might look into using something like GIMX but first I will need to acquire a USB adapter.

    This sounds amazing! Then can we have a UK or European based one with Land Rovers and Pands 4x4s, please?

    Vehicle Description

    The biggest of the C-class vehicles, the C-6317 is a strong utility vehicle, able to carry its fair share of attachments, but also able to hold its own on difficult terrain.

    Game Stats

    The C-6317 has a fuel capacity of 330L and features both all-wheel drive and differential lock and can sustain up to 600 points of damage. You'll need to find it in The Valley before you can drive it, but once you do, you'll have a powerful and versatile delivery vehicle at your disposal.

    Strengths

    The C-6317 is one of the few vehicles able to launch the new "Medium Log Trailer", and able to carry 7 load points at once.

    Weaknesses

    The C-6317 isn't the sturdiest vehicle, and won't stand up to heavy damage.

    Attachments

    The C-6317 is a strong utility vehicle, and as such, comes with a large complement of attachments.

    These are:
    • Fuel Cistern - Carries 1400 Fuel
    • Fuel Semi-trailer - Carries 3200 Fuel
    • Garage Parts - Carries Two Garage Points
    • Garage Semi-Trailer - Trailer that carries Four Garage Points
    • Garage Trailer – Trailer that carries Two Garage Points
