This brief tutorial will show you how to install the Rigs of Rods on Ubuntu 13.04 Raring and Linux Mint using the official repository.
Rigs of Rods (“RoR”) is an open source multi-simulation game which uses soft-body physics to simulate the motion and deformation of vehicles. The game was built using a specific soft-body physics engine called Beam, which simulates a network of interconnected nodes (forming the chassis and the wheels) and gives the ability to simulate deformable objects. With this engine, vehicles and their loads flex and deform as stresses are applied. Crashing into walls or terrain can permanently deform a vehicle.
