The Volvo FM is a mighty lumber truck which just looks amazing in detail. It has a lot of pulling power and it can take a punch. I did alter the xml for the truck so it can actually haul logs (short and medium) instead of the fake logs. Also adjusted are the gears. The gears in this download are based on the Gearbox Calculator excel sheet by PressureLine. The truck now has more authentic gears which give it a much smoother ride. The first gear is a so called granny gear so you should be able to pull away with any load. If you run the latest stable game there is now also a dashcam available.

When ever I install this mod it replaces the truck with a normal uaz I’ve tried replacing other trucks and get the same thing

You aren’t the only one Bahamut. I just tested it and it seems that the .xml is that of the vanilla UAZ, not the volvo we’re looking for. (Opened the file to check and compared it to the original, no difference there.) I’m sure Hein will look into it shortly tho.

I’m having the same problem.

Since you updated the .zip the truck worked one time, meaning that in de garage menu i could make a choice between volvo_platform and just platform, same with crane and trailer, since that one time i can only choose only normal platform crane and trailer, with thoose i can’t get logs, at lumber yard it says you need volvo_platform, but in garage i cannot choose that anymore, any idea how to fix this problem?

No clue, it works for me. Have you cleared cache?
steve900Mar 24, 2015 10:23 am
No i haven’t cleared that, simply cause i don’t know how yet so if you can tell me, i will do that and try the truck again

Thnx, but even then i cant get the volvo_platform just the regular one, even redownloaded the mod but still nothing, its very strange that i just did get the volvo_platform and stuff just 1 time
