BSM 7.0.1 & Poll Time!

Just a quick note, within moments of releasing the BSM 7.0 I realised there was an error and uploaded 7.0.1 I was hoping that it would be a silent upload and that no one downloading from the website would notice the change. But it has come to my attention that some of you were fast enough to get the original release.

Basically I had forgotten to disable the cargo for the removed M-Sport trailer, which would lead to many log errors and potentially a game crash in some circumstances.

So please do check if you downloaded from the website, that you are on 7.0.1 and not 7.0 you can do this by looking at the info screen in the mod manager.

Poll Time.

I am curious as to which trailer you would prefer to see in the BSM in the future.

Currently we have this beautiful, but old ported trailer for the Tesco 2 trailer.

However I am thinking of replacing it with this one that uses a slightly edited SCS cool liner.

Personally I prefer the original. But if enough people like the SCS model version I may change it.

Big Stobart Mod Update

A new update for the BSM is released.

I’m aware of the date so let me just say we Brits do not observe April Fools after mid-day and it is now 6pm. So rest assured this isn’t some BS to turn all the trailers pink (though admittedly is was tempting.)

There’s a few under the hood changes to hopefully improve performance, and three new trailer skins for the SDC trailer. Please note these skins are variants not separate trailers. The game will randomly pick which variant loads.

By request: Three JustJax images for the rear doors with appropriate number plates.

Compatibility & Crash Fix Updates

Along side the TOBJ fix some mods have been updated to remove the now obsolete lines for front/rear wheel accessories. It is possible that this change will make the mods incompatible with game version 1.22 and older.

Several mods have been updated to fix an error that will cause a game crash.

If you are on game version 1.23x please make sure you are running the newest versions of the following mods.

Banks of England (version 2.0.2)
Big Stobart Mod (version 6.4.4)
MP Burke (version 2.2.2)
F1 Combo (version 3.0.3)
Knowles (version 4.0.2)
Yorkshire Tea (version 2.6.2)

BSM Update

tbsm

A potential compatibility issues was brought to my attention. The issue was caused by me using the default names of SCS trailers in the latest addition rather than giving them new unique names as I normally do. If you happen to be using another mod with the same cargo it would cause trailers not to appear in game.

This issue has been fixed and version 6.4.3 is now available to download.

 

In other news, I have spent most of the past week playing with a Kenworth K200 in ATS.

Big Stobart Mod & Tutorial

tbsm

So naturally shortly after running out of ideas for the Big Stobart Mod, I have an idea for the BSM.

By now many of you are probably aware of, and waiting for, the BSM v6.4 which includes the Tandem in AI traffic.

During the wait for Dan to release his exclusive look at BSM v6.4 on Youtube, I ended up fixing a few things and adding the Explore Scania with 3 trailers. So the final release is actually v6.4.2 and is now available. Full details on the change log as usual.

Also worth noting; I have added a new video to the Painted AI traffic tutorial page showing how to make your own numberplate for AI traffic.

Happy New Year

So to see in the new year I have updated several mods.

BSM: Let’s start with some good news; Ekualizer has finally come back to me in regards to the Scania 143m model and we are a go. So the BSM has had a minor update to include appropriate credits in the file. If you’re using 6.3 then consider this an optional update, there is NO new content.

Mercedes Actros AI: Next up we see some new Actros traffic; I had a poll on the FB group and the majority of people seemed interested in having SCS like stock MP4 trucks in the AI. So I have released a mod to enable the Gigaspace in traffic and it should pull all available trailers, including mod trailers that haven’t been linked to specific ai cabs. Mod can be found on the “Other Mods” page.

AW Jenkinson: Then we have an AI update for A.W. Jenkinson, ai trucks include the MP4, Volvo 2012, and Scania Highline. I’ve also updated the Volvo 2009 so that the skin (and optional lightbox) works for Ohaha’s new Volvo Classic mod.

Banks of England: BoE also sees an AI update and also sees the first Renault I have made for AI. 🙂

Knowles Transport: Another update for the AI, the Volvo 2012 has been dragged into service to pull the Knowles trailer.

AI Vans: And finally we have another update for the AI Vans. This update sees two UK skins U-Benders, and British Heart Foundation. The latter is a replacement for the fictional green/yellow Plumbers van.

Hungary also sees a new livery in Szabofrigocargo.hu

And finishing up with two Slovakian skins in lokapetit, and Goro30.
