Custom Trailer v17

Bulk Updates for 1.43

Before I get into the main reason for the update, I would like to say that some mods will be getting added to the workshop as well.

In 1.43 SCS changed some def information relating to axles on trucks and trailers for compatibilty with future features.

Presently (up to 1.42) the following lines in the def files were as follows:

liftable and/orsteerable axle: X (rear most axle)
liftable and/or steerable axle: X (middle axle)
liftable and/or steerable axle: X (front axle)

This has now been switched around so that the front axle is now at the top of the list and rear most at the bottom. While the change is minor, it does mean all trucks trailer mods using liftable and/or steerable axles need updating.

Below is a list of all my mods affected and updated.

Whether you loved them or hated them, one thing remains true, for the past few decades they were a well known sight on British highways, whether that was by spotters going out to see them and photograph them or haters seeing them upturned in ditches or stuck under bridges.
