Truck Yeah! – Bad Piggies Weekend Challenge

Trucks (or lorries, if you prefer) are crucial haulers of bulk materiel in the real world. With Piggy Island’s ongoing rapid modernization, we suggested Rovio to do a Weekend Challenge topic on trucks (Facebook link). That’s what we’re doing right now!

I suggested this particular topic for an important reason: accessibility and flexibility. This is a wonderfully easy topic that everyone can jump into, as there are literally thousands of ways to assemble a truck in Bad Piggies. From classic American big rigs to hi tech Euro cab-overs, anything is possible.

In this video below I demonstrate operating different types of trucks/lorries to demonstrate the versatility of the Bad Piggies sandbox game mode.

Engineer’s Notes:

In the video there’s a a box truck with a functional suspension system at the end. Functional suspension in Bad Piggies had been a personal curiosity for me for some time because it is not possible to easily construct a suspension assembly in Bad Piggies without taking a lot of space. You have to be familiar with spring rates and bending moments to be able to devise a system of shock absorption. Better yet, utilize bending parts like rudimentary torsion bar suspension!

The term “truck” in automotive parlance is not just restricted to bulk commercial haulers. You can design some cool large pickups (popular in the USA) or even off-road performance vehicles like the Ford Raptor.

I am a fan of Ford trucks and this is meant as a piggy parody.

Yeah, using TNTs in a contraption sure make a pretty wise choice and drive around like a Fort.

I did lol’d at “not for human operation” sign. XD

Liked #2, Cab Over Design. These trucks are really creative. The individuals who have the ability to create these trucks are impressive in their abilities to invent. Thanks for the post.

One day I’m going to copy one of this creation and try to use it to see if the result is the same on my phone :)

You’re welcome to copy and improve them :) Except for various bits of epig failure here and there requiring several retries, they should work as advertised :)

The motto of Pigineering (in some of the videos, and currently not used on ABN) is “We Never Fail to Fail” :)

What are those tiles that has a red circular ring at the center of a plus-shaped tile? It doesn’t appear in ios version, I think

it is a especial type of conection that can be separated from the machine very good if you want to separate something without booms
