As most of you know by now, I officially retired from public modding at the end of last year. However I made the commitment to keep my already published mods updated, this has not changed.
However how I release updates has. Steam Workshop updates will come when I am ready to release, I don’t have many mods on the Workshop and most of those will likely be unaffected by game updates for the most part.
My offline mods, hosted here, on the other hand will not be as and when I feel they are ready. Because these mods take up way more time in total, they will only be updated either during SCS Open Beta periods or once the SCS game updates go full release.

Several workshop most got an update today.
Custom Trailer Mod: Added painted cage/box combo.
Added Goodyear Tyres to trailer, added non-paint version too. (requires ownership of DLC for these).
Improved DUO sideskirt.
Truck Accessory Pack: Changed name from Scania Accessory Pack
Added Mercedes MP3 true painted door handle. (is on truck template so designs can flow across it.
Added Mercedes MP4 painted sunshield.
Added MAN E6 paint & chrome intake bar.
Added MAN E6 intake paint & stock with slots.
Added 4 MAN E6 front bumper variations with slots.
Big Stobart Mod & Malcolm Mod: Updated for compatibility with Custom Trailer Mod changes.
Wyvern, the Big Stobart Mod, and the Big Malcolm Mod have all received minor updates via Workshop today for compatibility with the custom owned trailer updates. Both BMM and BSM got an OT skin for the new SDC trailer in the COT mod, and the BSM also go a new skin for SCS curtain.
The Custom Owned Trailer mod got an SDC like curtain (4.8m) and insulated curtain, some new cooler units (full paint – tank is now painted), the alt SDC side skirts have been replaced with the aero+bar variant including a full paint version, there are 4 new rear bumpers, SDC Aeroliner like and the new SDC bumpers, with stock, burger lights, and custom light slot options.
My other mods that include COT skins will be updated in due course.
Some new additions to the Scania Accessory Pack.
SCS Accent & Thor MG DLC cabin bars have a painted option now, the 2 side bars for the sideskirts now have a painted option, and the Chariot rear bumper (MG DLC) also has a painted bar option.
I’ve added the Yorkshire rose LED backboard into the mod, I previously released it solo as a Yorkshire Day gift, it is now part of this mod. If you’re using the old version please remove it.

Anhalt has now been updated to 1.35 – Old cistern models have been replaced with SCS models, with reskinned tanks.
In a future update I will probably use the other tank shapes too, but for now just the one. There will be duplicates in the freight market trailer picker due to how the mod is made.
The F1 Combo Pack has been updated. Changes include:
Removal of brand specific Cars in cargo, they are now just called Racing Cars. This was done for numerous reasons, partly because it means less work for me if anything changes in the future, and partly because all the trailers share cargo, it wouldn’t make sense for Red Bull to take Ferrari cars.
The trailers have been merged into one data file, this means instead of seeing multiple entries in the trailer browser with (brand name) they will all be in one group called “Racing Trailers (IJ’s)”.
Collisions on the trailer have been updated as the sides were low, which could cause damage on some corners, or bumps.
Wheels have been replace with SCS ones.
Kingpin has been moved slightly as the old location meant the trailer sat too close to the cab on some truck configurations.
Due to the fact I no longer feel the desire to maintain and update tutorials as required, I have decided to remove all tutorials from my site. Much of the Blender related tutorials are already somewhat out of date.
As of Monday morning I will be deleting the tutorials pages completely.
If you still find the information on them useful, then I highly suggest you make backups, the videos on Youtube are already unlisted (you can still access them from the tutorial pages should you want to bookmark them).
Once they are gone they are gone.
