Bug Description

Rigs of Rods (also known as RoR), is an Open Source truck, car, airplane and boat simulator. You can drive, fly or sail in total freedom in an open environment. What makes RoR different to most simulators is its unique soft-body physics: vehicles chassis and wheels are simulated in real-time as flexible objects, giving the simulation an extremely accurate behavior, while allowing the vehicles to be simply specified by their structural composition, as a network of interconnected nodes (forming the chassis and the wheels). Crashing into walls or terrain can permanently deform a vehicle in a realistic manner. In addition to its unique soft-body physics, RoR also features an advanced flight model based on blade element theory, allowing the accurate simulation of any airplane, base on their physical dimensions and wing airfoils. It also features an accurate buoyancy model based on elemental pressure gradients, enabling boats with complex hulls to move realistically in the swell.
Rigs of Rods is an amateur game developped by Pierre-Michel Ricordel, aka Pricorde, and is a one man hobby development, with a $0 budget, that has started more than two years ago and is still continuing. Recently a second developer, Thomas, has joined the "team". He is also the donator and caretaker of the web sites. A growing community has build up since some time and has contributed many vehicles to the game.

It has an APT repo I do think we should take our own route with this one. Nice Game to add to the games.

Hello This not a rejection it is the state we must follow.
1. We confirm that it does not already exist. (If yes we can upgrade if available.) and add to our repo cause we are have the games available in one place. PlayDeb
2. The source is available so we can manage it into a deb package.
3. Licensed under a free license and does not require data or binaries from source purchased and Copyrighted
(permission for these are sometimes granted.) Then it is ok to do so.
4. If a binary is only available then we check if LGPL license so we can package it.
Most client installers are already available and we usually will not be granted permission to the source hence we cannot package it. And there binary are under a license for us not to alter.

The game is not complete enough to be released.

FYI, I think RoR will be ready for release very soon, or may already be. They are going to be releasing 0.37 soon so it may make sense to take that into Ubuntu/Debian.

This isn't really a game, it's more of a physics simulator, so the absence of any goals or missions is intentional.
