Hello,

this is my take on a garbage truck. I know there already are a lot of garbage truck designs out there, but I thought another design wouldn't be bad.
This truck is a rear loader and has two hydraulic arms for emptying the trashcans.

What I see most people struggle with in terms of garbage trucks, is the side of the truck. Some make it completely flat, some create a stripe pattern with different colored blocks. But real garbage trucks have many thin struts on the outside to make the container more stable.
I tried to create those struts with shulker boxes, which have this neat little, darker area at the bottom.

Anyway, let me know what you think of it.

Enjoy!

I think it looks pretty good. I noticed you post quite often: Do you have like a huge stash of vehicles to upload or do you make new vehicles everyday?

I make them everyday, fresh and new from scratch. Depending on how hard it is to get the right shape and correct detailing it takes me 3 or more hours for one vehicle. The grader for example was so hard that I paused building on it for 3 days and built other vehicles nearby. That way I always saw the grader from the corner of my eye and got it finished bit by bit. The garbage truck wasn't that hard and took (I think) 2-3 hours.
But I didn't "prebuild" them and just upload them now one after the other.

gotcha, also do you build on a server or just single player?

I build in my single player world. So I can build even without internet connection. I only need one for posting ^^

Does that mean you are now building on a server? What advantages does that have over single player?

Yes, I own a realistic creative server called Foxshot, where we have all types of vehicle builders.

The advantages is having a community of fellow builders to share your work with, help you or give feedback. Also other people can give you inspiration, I learned many new building techniques and worldedit commands that I would not have found out on my own. Also the main thing is that its fun. You can talk to people who share similar interests.

Ah, that's nice. Another reason why I still build in single player is that I actually don't want other people to see my builds until they're finished. I need my creative privacy there xD
