Rigs of Rods (also known as RoR), is an Open Source truck, car, airplane, helicopter, and boat simulator! 2,000+ Vehicles to play with!!!

You can download just about ANYTHING you would want to sail/fly/or drive from: https://forum.rigsofrods.org/resources/ Software Santa saw a Hughes 500D to download. COOL!!

Windows / Intel Mac (at least as far as OS X 10.12) / Linux



For Mac OS X 10.12  ... RoR 0.35 (this is the last Intel Mac version) is still working OK in 2020 (10 Years Old and Unsupported). Get it HERE: https://sourceforge.net/projects/rigsofrods/files/latest/download

What is it?

Rigs of Rods (also known as RoR), is an Open Source truck, car, airplane, helicopter, and boat simulator. You can drive, fly or sail in total freedom in an open environment. What makes RoR different to most simulators is its unique soft-body physics: vehicles chassis and wheels are simulated in real-time as flexible objects, giving the simulation an extremely accurate behavior, while allowing the vehicles to be simply specified by their structural composition, as a network of interconnected nodes (forming the chassis and the wheels). Crashing into walls or terrain can permanently deform a vehicle in a realistic manner. In addition to its unique soft-body physics, RoR also features an advanced flight model based on blade element theory, allowing the accurate simulation of any airplane, base on their physical dimensions and wing airfoils. It also features an accurate buoyancy model based on elemental pressure gradients, enabling boats with complex hulls to move realistically in the swell.

Rigs of Rods is an amateur game developed by Pierre-Michel Ricordel, aka Pricorde, and is a one man hobby development, with a $0 budget, that has started more than two years ago and is still continuing. Recently a second developer, Thomas, has joined the "team". He is also the donator and caretaker of the web sites. A growing community has build up since some time and has contributed many vehicles to the game.



Recommended System Requirements

    * CPU: P4 or equivalent AMD at 2GHz or more, better with HyperThreading technology or dual-core (RoR has dual-core support)
    * RAM:512 MB of RAM
    * Video Card: 3D Accelerated with 128MB of VRAM or more
    * DirectX 9c on Windows, or GLX on Linux
    * supports force feedback joysticks and wheels (except on Linux)
    * supports 3D sound effects with multichannel sound cards (enable the hardware sound renderer)

Mods

RoR is highly moddable: currently there are 2047 mods for RoR.

License

RoR is a freeware: it is given free of charge (and open source as of 8th Februry 2009). All rights are reserved to its author.

Software Santa smashed a VERY Realistic looking Police Car into the wall and ran away feeling ... guilty? proud? stupid? Ooooops!  :lol:
