Applying Dual Wheels to a existing Tractor, with the use of Giant's Editor.

Unzip the Mod files into a separate folder, to be able to edit the Mod you wish to change

If you are haveing trouble getting the tires to rotate or they show up turn and all but you can walk right through them, here is the way I do it and it works great and the wheels actually serve their purpose!

First of all: (Using GIANT) 1. Open the “Equipment” with the wheels you wish to double/triple/ect, .

2. Click on the first wheel you wish to put a double with.

3. Then click EDIT then COPY (NOT DUPLICATE duplicate is why the wheels will not turn when you finish and save!) .

4. With the wheel still selected, click EDIT and then PASTE, you will notice in the SCENEGRAPH that the second wheel was pasted into the selected wheel, this is good, now work a little by selecting the copied wheel and move it in place next to the selected wheel were you need it.(Will take some practice).

5. The wheel is doubled at this point, however, it has no “Collision” reference, this is what makes it a solid object of sort in the game, this is were it is a little tricky: Find in the SCENEGRAPH the wheel that matches the name of the wheel you selected to copy that has the _col at the end EXAMPLE; (Your selected wheel) wheelRightBack (The collision you are looking for, for that wheel) wheelRightBack_col

6. Once you find the “_col”, select it and click EDIT and this time chose DUPLICATE then select the duplicate “_col” and position the duplicate “_col” over the copied wheel, (you may have to make the “_col” visible to see what you are moving, do this in the ATTRIBUTES and put a check in the “Visibility” checkbox), you can uncheck it when you are done.

7. Save your work, you are done,(after you make your other wheels), you have just learned how to make your own duel wheels that serve their porpose!

These steps I follow on ALL my wheel modifications and it works every time with no faults, so if it does not work for you, “Try Try Again”! It worked for me!!! 8-) ;-) 8-) You may want to download one of my Fendts I dueled up
