Rigs of Rods


Rigs of Rods video game by Rigs of Rods

Made by Rigs of Rods

Dive into soft body physics

Rigs of Rods is a sandbox-style vehicle simulator

What makes Rigs of Rods different to most simulators is its unique soft-body physics model: vehicles, machines, objects, etc. are simulated in real-time as flexible soft-body objects, giving the simulation an extremely accurate behavior which entirely depends on the physical construction of the vehicles or objects you create.

Entirely Free and Open Source

Community driven and developed, anyone can join and contribute

Important notes:

Rigs of Rods isn't a beginner-friendly game, so I recommend to read the Beginner's Guide first:you need any support, join our discord server and post you issue in game-support. Make sure you read the channel description for the quickest response!

PoliPlanet


PoliPlanet video game Developed by JT and published by JT

Developed by JT and published by JT

Your galaxy is a blank slate; An untamed wilderness full of potential! Travel from planet to planet and develop each one into a beautiful village, town, or city through the use of machines and crafting!

Physics-Based Interaction

Actions in PoliPlanet are generally completed by interacting with the physical world rather than through the use of menus and UI. Whether it's gathering resources, loading machines, or planting trees, it's all done in real time and space.

Free-Form Building

No grids, no point click. Whether it's a segment or a complete structure, you're free to build wherever and however you want. Let your creativity flourish!

Real Relationships

Citizens in PoliPlanet are not mindless NPCs who follow a predetermined set of instructions. They build complex relationships with the player and each other. Treat them well!

Natural Progression

As you develop your skills, you'll learn more about the resources at your disposal and gain the ability to craft bigger and better structures and machines. As your planets become more inviting, NPCs will begin take notice. If they like them enough, they might even fly over in their rocket ship and take up residence! But of course, everyone is different. A merchant might want to see a few other citizens living on your planet before they're willing to set up shop. They need someone to sell to after all!

Elaborate Procedural Generation

Each planet is unique, with its own resources and features! So what if your citizens are requesting some plant life on your sandy, desert planet? Well, it's off to your spaceship to search for a shiny new planet, lush with trees and plants! But how will you get them back to your civilization? Rockets? An overly complicated tube system? Build a transportation robot who exists solely to carry out your every request? It's up to you!
