1.35 Workshop updates

All my ATS mods on workshop have been updated to 1.35 and several of my ETS2 ones have also been updated.

All updated mods support both 1.35 and 1.34 (and in some cases older)

The following mods will be updated over the next few days/week:
Big Stobart Mod
Custom Trailer
Scania Accessories
Stobart Truck Skins
Wychwood
Wyvern

These mods are getting other updates (and some fixes) so I need to be sure everything is read before pushing those through.

All mods hosted on this website will NOT be updated before 1.35 goes full public. This is because updated models for 1.35 will not work on older game versions (will crash them) and since some people don’t bother reading information files, would only moan when they screw up their game. So 1.35 updates will hate to wait until then.

Many many updates.

First off the Big Stobart Mod has been updated to include a custom owned reefer skin, WS, and Explore as well as some updates for new parts in the custom owned trailer mod. MAN E6 has also been added to AI.
Old SDC side skirt model for freight market and AI has been swapped out for new model.
Replaced Maddie & Charity Reefer mod trailers with SCS box reefer.

More Updates

A few more updates have been pushed through.

On Steam the Air Fresheners got an update in both ATS and ETS2 to change the blue beta tester colour to better match the new forum colour. SCS Synergy (red circle green, blue, and gold teeth) added.

The Big Malcolm Mod also got a minor tweak to add English localisation for trailer browser so the tn_ no longer appears.

A few days ago I also updated the Scania Accessory Pack to include remoled brows support to my headlights.

For the offline mods, AIM, Caffrey, Children in Need, and Club trailers have all been updated from the old reefer mod to SCS based trailers.

Updates

The following mods have all been updated and pushed through on Steam Workshop.

AI SCS Painted Vans (North) – Updated for Steam Only and tweaked spawn locations for some companies. EG: IKA is now allowed in other countries such as UK.

Big Malcolm Mod – Bug Fixes.

Wychwood Brewery – Bug Fixes.

Wyvern Cargo – Bug Fixes.

Also note I have decided to separate the painted AI vans (replica) and SCS Company pages into two separate ones.

 

1.28 Open Beta Updates

So with open beta comes more changes, mostly COG changes for trailers to match the ATS changes that came with the Heavy Cargo DLC.

While the mods will function just fine (with warnings in the log) I have decided to update the “offline” mods today. Be aware that all the trailer/combo mods are updated for 1.28 Open Beta and will not work on older game versions.

There are 88 mods that will be updated so I am not going to list them all here. But all mods found on the combo page and company/Trailer pages should be updated including both the Big Malcolm Mod and Big Stobart Mod.

The fuel tanker pack also gained a new trailer as part of its update.

The BSM update also includes an SDC curtain for Explore and a TYCO trailer and AI combo.

 

For those from my FB Group wondering where the NEW things are, I will release those after 1.28ETS goes public.

 

Next Batch of Updates

The next batch of updates have been released.

Arclid – now has a Volvo AI traffic combo.
Buckfast – Fixed AI driver position and updated model.
Essers – AI Driver position.
SBS Movers – Added AI combo to public release.
Wyvern Cargo -AI driver position
Yorkshire Tea – AI Driver position and switch to SCS model.
YPO – Added trailer and AI combo (moved to combos page)

The Big Malcolm Mod also hits version 4. This release was intended some time ago, but kept being put on hold. I have finally released version 4 with full AI combos. Tag lift Scania for walking floor trailer, midlift for all other trailers. Volvo pulls only the curtain and fridge and a MAN for the tanker.

 

Trailer Mod Updates for 1.24x

Please note because of the significant trailer changes in 1.24x trailers that are update will NOT work with 1.23x or older game versions. 

If you plan to stay on 1.23x or older, do not update trailer mods from this point. 

On that note lets talk about updates. There are several updates I need to make for ETS2 1.24x.

 

The first set of updates, trailer height and advanced coupling collisions have all been done and the mods are ready to go. However there are some “issues”. Unfortunately Blender doesn’t like animations, this means there is no possible way for me to include the new animation for trailer legs on mod trailers. My only hope is that the original authors will update their trailers.

For SCS model trailers I am able to use the SCS animation, so some trailers will have animated legs.

The next update is AI traffic related. The node for the driver in AI traffic has changed, this means in old AI traffic you will see the driver too low and too far forward. Essentially head-butting the steering wheel with their legs poking out of the front of the vehicle.

Because I wanted to rush out the advanced trailer compatibility I chose NOT to update AI traffic in my AI trucks/trailer combo packs. This will be done at a later date. The good news is, I have been planning on updating the Stobart AI Scanias as I felt they were too decimated and looks a bit fuzzy, so this change also gives me a reason to remake the Scania AI trucks. My AI van traffic will be the first to get the AI driver fix, followed by Stobart and then most likely alphabetical order for everything else.

Below is a list of all the mods I have updated (basically all trailers) if you think I have missed something please let me know. Also be aware, because I have rushed these updates out it is possible I have missed something that might cause a crash, if this is the case please do let me know. Hopefully I caught all the issues though. I’ve run all the mods through validate without issue so I should have caught any potentially CTD problems.
