Single hitch light vehicles

Recommended Posts

Hi, it would be nice to have light one hitch vehicles in the style of a gig or shay. They should be light weighted, one or at most two seated, with very limited loading capacity, e.g. 1 backpack and 1 or 2 weapons. Arguably they could be available to basic accounts (e.g. hitching a cow), possibly special versions for races. Unfortunately I am bad in graphics so please refer to e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gig_(carriage) for examples for models.

A less ignorant and arrogant response would have been really welcome. The proposal is not "solved" by it.

 

Light single hitched vehicles have been, in the ages of animal driven transport, what motorcycles are in our days, in all different versions. This is not addressed by a 5 speed horse, hell horse, or unicorn, not only that there is certainly no two seated version thereof.

 

And of course, this would be more a nice to have than anything addressing a problem to be "solved".

I, too, have been thinking about these!

 

Would be such a nice feature to have carriages of all sizes! Single seaters, two seaters(like chariots) and even giant ones like the full carriages (think Cinderella's pumpkin carriage) would be so nice!

Vehicles strictly for transportation of people, while not necessary (as large carts already fill this role), would add another option when choosing ground vehicles. 

 

Just because there are other objects that fill these roles does not mean we shouldn't add more variety. Variety, after all, is the spice of life!

brand new noobs can make carts, so whats the point? Put hell horses with good gear on a rare cart you do 35+ if you just want fast transport

If the OP is asking for a super cart that goes 40 km/hr, sorry but -1.

 

A traited and properly geared unicorn goes faster than a large cart, even with a passenger.    Unless said cart is using HH, of course.

 

Saddle sacks can hold 5 satchels worth of items, a unicorn can carry 1 passenger.... not sure why the OP is namecalling but, whatevs.

I would save time and re-purpose the small cart into a buggy with minimal room for items. 

1 Animal per hitch, average speed 18km.

This has been passed around for years .

Maybe a DEV will chime in ?

+1 to this, but I'd envision it just being the ability to hitch an animal to a small cart rather than creating something new, and unable to be ridden.  More of the ability to use a small cart and travel faster. They could maintain their usefulness around town after a player can ride a large cart.

Allow for hitching horses and cows of course, but could be fun if you could hitch tamed animals as well, like black bears and deer, and other such critters.
