Overhead (drive under) Conveyors

Post by gw1500se » Sun Oct 07, 2018 4:08 pm

I was looking around for overhead conveyors and stumbled across this setup. Does anyone know where the mod for these concrete pillars came from and how the heck this user was able to get the conveyors up there? Unfortunately they are pictures only with no explanation.TIA.

Looks like the Concrete pack on modhub. Nice touch! A telehandler should do the trick just fine. Will have to try it out.

Thanks. I think I now understand the comment about tipping point. I guess I should drive the telehandler up to a pillar then lower it hoping it will tip toward the next pillar. I'll have to play around with it. Maybe use a wheel loader to help it along. I wonder if a fork lift can balance it an put it in place?

Well my experiment did not go well. I have no idea how it was accomplished, within reason. I'd like to suggest someone much more familiar with modding than me, generate an overhead conveyor system. I think it would be a well appreciated mod.

Have you tried a wheel loader with a graple?

Or try the excavator with an attachment that can grab.

I'm sure there's going to be major clipping going on but it should hold it. I assume you're trying to get the conveyor on the retainer walls?

Thanks. I didn't think about a grapple. I'll give that a try.

That is a brilliant idea. I have never thought of that!

I'll have to try it!
