Looking for the download link? It’s at the end of this post.
It’s a nice modification of the base game’s John Deere 8RT tractors, with several additions.
If you compare actual 8RTs across the Atlantic, you’ll notice there are some differences. American and Canadian versions will often have longer axle track widths than European versions. This has to do with EU road traffic regulations, limiting how wide on-road vehicles can be.
There are other distinctions too. Steenkamp Modding has tried to incorporate these dissimilarities into the mod.
Steenkamp Modding’s John Deere 8RT has a total of 5 options for how wide the tracks can be. There are also 4 alternatives for axle track spacing.
Then, there is the EU and the US configurations. Most notably, it changes parts of the tractor’s front and rear visuals. There are some options for the front weights and the beacons as well.
