    Challenge for engineers

    People sometime want to create trailers...
    And they try to use a winch to pull it.
    But we know it is not yet good enough for such a task.
    That was intentionally made so, because Craneballs knows there is another solution!

    The challenge consists in finding and presenting that another solution.

    The challenge is restricted to land vehicles. Air blades are not allowed.

    When you say trailer ..... does it have to be hitchable and detachable?

    I have built a few trucks with dumb trailers ( articulated trucks/trailers )

    I built a few large hitchable trailers in the past, and they worked great... Until the first few bumps... And then the physics glitches hit and it all went horribly horribly wrong. Like end up 2.7 million light years away in an instant wrong. Fun ride, though

    I had a dream.
    You have two choices:
    • hear the dream
    • receive a save where you have a certain amount of resources and you have to find a solution

    I am not sure if I should offer both.
    But it may be that the dream gives too little information.
    Or it could be that the reality will kill it and I might not be able to offer a save.
    I was too quick to post this challenge and I have not created myself a solution yet.
    It may take 2-3 days to build a prototype and if that works I can dismantle it and prepare the save.
    I will share via a private message, either the dream or the password to the compressed zip file. So you can each choose a different path

    People who missed the previous challenge, should definitely attempt that one first:
