Hey @Digi, as @SioxerNikita asked previously: Do these tracks influence any of the vehicle's driving characteristics?

Hey Digi, amazing mod! Question, is there a public blueprint of the miner/tunneler in picture 5?

Hey Digi, are there any plans to make this work on wheels attached to the suspension wheel? I have a large grid rover that works better with wider "treads" IE suspension wheels with 3 additional wheels to lengthen them

That can't work with this as this is non-physical and also rotates when the vehicle moves, it's not designed for stationary (but the last one I can fix, first one is not something I can just add).

For proper conveyor belts it would need an entirely different mod/framework specifically designed for that and with its expected scale in mind (which affects detail and optimizations).

This works only on suspension wheels, not on wheels on rotors. You can put the track on those as well, but it doesn't move. I wanted to try if i can use the mod as a conveyor belt. I hope someone can make a modified version for that purpose.

Do they have any effect on traction and speed?

wish the devs did something like this, rails and tracks are my most wanted things for space engineers.

A simple, yet elegant response in line with all good engineering solutions:

MANY TANKS!
