Should be a thread. This is OLD old old old news :) I used to say I wished the tanks in World of Tanks would smoke like the trucks in this tech thingy. It should have mud liek this too for tanks to egt stuck in. This did those two things great. Ill see if I can dig up the old post. It may not have had its own thread. Must be at least 5 years ago.

Lookign at the release date it says 2014 but I KNOW its older than that. It was a demo / tech demo long before they released it as a 'game' which it really isn't.

EDIT: The only thing I see is posted 2013. I could swear we talked about it a lot. Oh well. Seeing that pic makes me want to install it and go play in the mud. But I never paid for it. I would still love a tank sim with mud and smoke like this.

I played it fora couple of hours. I was having a lot of trouble with the mud. They must have gone to the muddiest place in Russia to make this.
Mainly tho I was having problems with the wheel I was using and went to a controller instead. It was working better but I never got back to it.
I plan to ones of these days.

I bought this a long time ago in a sale, but it's sitting in my backlog with about 300 other things. To its credit, I am looking forward to giving it a try, so it's probably in the top 20 in my backlog.

Tom Chick's review (July 2014 - wow!) is really what sold it for me. After I read that, I was dying to try it. But of course I had to wait for a Steam sale, because I was reading about all kinds of bugs and stuff. So I waited and grabbed it at half off, but by then I'd sort of lost interest after reading about the never-ending battle between the dev and the publisher, which made it look like it was never going to get another update.

IIRC, I think they might have made some progress lately though. I may just have to go and check this out.

By the looks of it, you'd need a FF wheel capable of breaking your arm.

The negative steam reviews mention that every update invalidates your save game progress .. so, I guess that makes it a Farting-Around™ simulator

:shock: ... Spintires: MudRunner - Reveal Trailer
Focus Home Interactive announces Spintires: MudRunner, an upcoming chance to get back behind the wheel in Spintires and go off-road in a new installment in the series. Owners of the first Spintires will be rewarded with a 50% discount when this is released in October for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Here's a reveal trailer, and here are the details:

Focus Home Interactive is happy to announce its collaboration with Saber Interactive for the development of Spintires: MudRunner, the ultimate version of the million-seller indie hit Spintires coming in October to PC and for the first time to consoles. Like Spintires before it, Spintires: MudRunner puts players in the driver seat and dares them to take charge of incredible all-terrain vehicles, venturing across extreme Siberian landscapes with only a map and compass as guides! Get a taste of what awaits you in the Reveal Trailer.

A huge upgrade over its predecessor, this edition comes complete with a brand new Sandbox Map joining the original game's 5 environments, a total graphical overhaul, a new Challenge mode with 9 new dedicated maps, 13 new vehicles and other comprehensive improvements. It’s not just an enhanced edition, it’s the ultimate off-road simulation experience!

Drive 19 powerful all-terrain vehicles, each with its own characteristics and attachable equipment. Complete your objectives and deliveries by enduring perilous conditions across wild, untamed landscapes in extreme conditions with dynamic day-night cycles. Explore an immersive sandbox environment, enhanced by improved graphics. Overcome muddy terrain, raging rivers and other obstacles that all realistically react to the weight and movement of your vehicle powered by the game's advanced physics engine.

With your map, compass, winch, and your driving skills as allies, go solo or join up to three others in the coop multiplayer. On PC, download mods created by the passionate community for truck-loads of content and an ever-evolving Spintires: MudRunner experience.

they sure let this stagnate since release .. I'm a little confused as to what this adds, besides ... "Realtime Mud Technology" ..

10/31 release
MudRunner is an expanded re-release of 2014’s Spintires, a wonderful game about driving huge vehicles through dynamic simulated mud. Why is MudRunner a separate release? Because the game has changed hands, switching publishers from Oovee to Focus Home and signing up development studio Saber Interactive to work with creator Pavel Zagrebelny.

MudRunner will pack a new sandbox map, a general fancying-up of graphics, new vehicles, a new Challenge mode, and other fancy bits.

It is a shame that this is a separate release, but people who bought the original SpinTires will at least get a 50% discount on MudRunner.
...
Spintires: MudRunner will cost £24.99/€29.99/$29.99 when it hits Steam on October 31st.

I never did understand guys fascination with buying big trucks with monster tire and going mudding.
Sooner or later they'd come across a mudhole too big for them.
This game is just like that.
