Since I don't have the time to continue with this mod, I am open sourcing it for any modder who wants to pick it up and continue working on it. See the pinned thread for a link to the files, add your name if you are interested, and talk with other modders about who will take it over.

This mod is a work in progress and needs a lot of testing in both SP and MP and is not ready for prime time, so if you don't want to deal with the bugs but are still interested in the mod, please subscribe and follow and check back when it is more stable. If you want to test and play around with it, please report any bugs and offer your suggestions in the appropriate discussion threads. Server admins, do not monetize this mod and please list your server in the server discussion. Thanks.

Should be stackable


Most Recent Changelog 6/28/2016:
- Ability to 'Pickup' carts/wagons.

- SERVERS: carts and wagons should now hitch and work properly, however there may still be bugs and they probably will not perform as well as they do in singleplayer as this was a major overhaul and completely changes how carts/wagons are handled on dedicated servers.
- Wheel sound should not persist anymore since 'Demolish' has been disabled and replaced with 'Pickup'

- Carts should not bounce around nearly as much.

Currently working on:
- Hitching harnesses for dinos to hitch to carts/wagons. See preview image above.

Current Items/Features:
Wooden Cart - LVL 5: Only Players can pull. Players can only build small structures eg. Small/large Storage Box, Campfire, Bed, Forge; no foundations allowed. To hitch, walk between the handles at the front until you see '[E] Hitch', then press [E]. To unhitch, press 'E', or crouch, or go prone. If the cart flips over, look at it and press 'E'. Max Pull Weight 2000lbs.

Small Wooden Dino Cart - LVL 5: Currently hitches to Pachy, Raptor, Scorpion, Saber, Phiomia, Parasaur, Beaver, Wolf, Anky, Turtle, Doedic, Megaloceros, Procoptodon, Beezlebufo, Bear, and Gallimimus. These dinos are subject to change based on feedback, i.e. do you think they fit the size of cart. Make your suggestions in the Suggestion Forum. To hitch a cart to a dino, back up or walk forward the to hitch until dino stops, then dismount and look at cart and press 'E'. If they don't have a saddle you can get them to follow you up to the hitch until they stop. Max Pull weight 2000lbs.

Small Wooden Wagon - LVL 15: Supports building of small bases. Currently hitches to Trike, Galli, Stego, Phiomia, Carno, Procop, Parasaur, and Direbear. Max weight your dino can tow is calculated by multiplying their weight stat times 10, and subtracting their current inventory weight. The maximum any dino can pull on this wagon is 10,000.

puedes arreglarlo para que se pueda usar en servidores privados

The mod is set on private so I can't use it on a server. Could you please make it public again?

it's pretty sad that this mod might never get updated... as you can tell if you glance at the created/last updated date :/

has anyone decided to start working on this mod? It would be amazing to see this mod be updated and maintained

me encanto la idea del mod pero le falta trabajo, salgo volando en ocasiones de la nada y los carros grandes nunca los pude despegar del piso y se bugeaban al soltarlos :steamsad: Mar 15, 2021 @ 9:56pm 
Works fine for me too. Sometimes when I take the cart I go flying, but I just need to jump or walk and it goes back down.

@_criiiss_19 a simple bit of reading before posting and you'd realise this mod was released in 2016 and that's also when it was last updated.

The very first paragraph of the description, in big bold blue text says
"Since I don't have the time to continue with this mod, I am open sourcing it for any modder who wants to pick it up and continue working on it. See the pinned thread for a link to the files, add your name if you are interested, and talk with other modders about who will take it over."
