1.40 Update Plans

For those not on my Patreon I just wanted to let you know what my mod update plans will be for 1.40.

First up expect no updates through Open Beta.

1.40 is probably the biggest change to effect mods in the history of SCS games. While most mods will appear to function with no log errors, the fact is even the simplest of materials/textures not updated to new versions can affect the whole game world lighting.

Productive days

So outside of my other obligations I have been doing a bit of tinkering and planning.

Since 1.40 will bring new lighting I have decided now is a good a time as any to look into updating my flares in the ATS/ETS2 Truck accessories as well as the Custom Trailer mod.

The first change will be folder locations. Rather than have separate ones for the two ETS2 mods, they are going to use the same folder. This means any general additions I make for the trucks, can be thrown into the trailer one without any effort. The only differences will be the text files and file names.

Mods on Holds

Due to the announcement that 1.40 will include the lighting change and the note that assets need to be updated. All mods are now on hold.

Since it’s highly likely my mods will require updating to properly work with 1.40 I see no point in adding/updating mods at this time until I know how much will need to be redone.

At this time I am expecting all models that use SCS parts to require a rework, which basically means 99% of my mods.

I THINK that old models might cause minor issues, if that is the case then my mods will remain on the website and updated as I can, but if there are significant issue I will simply remove all mods from the site completely and add them back as they are updated.

Whatever the case may be, I will focus on updating Workshop mods before the ones hosted here and most likely the ATS ones first.

Updates

Three updates today.

PSG & Defunct pack is now public having been a Patreon Exclusive for a couple of weeks. Updates include a Royal Mail OT skin for both SCS and my custom OT.

Every company in the defunct pack now also has an OT skin available for both SCS and my custom OT mod.

The Red Dwarf flag pack has also been updated to include Range T, and Scania S/R. I’d forgotten they work per truck and not as global hookups.

After a two year absence Lister’s of Halifax has now returned to the site. Fully updated for 1.38.

More 1.38 Updates PT2

Previously I mentioned that a vote would be coming up for Patrons, now that all current mods are updated to work with 1.38 I am going to be giving Patrons a chance to vote on what comes next. It might be an update to an existing mod, a reissue of an old mod that has yet to return to the site, or even a brand new mod. As always, Patreon votes will mean whatever is picked will be a Patreon exclusive for a time.

As for everyone else, the last of the mods to be updated are now done. Nestle and Williams also got cargo icons for the cargo market.
