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.

Scania Painted Accessory Mod Update

c

The more I add to this mod, the more I wish I hadn’t included “painted” in the name. There’s more standard accessories in it now than there are painted stuff. Oh well. Maybe I’ll rename it next year.

In the mean time the mod has now been updated to include full and half headlights for the grill lights, which also include white or orange strobe options.

The chassis (main) lights have also been updated to include strobe options and the Scania logo is now a paintable accessory as well.

Rather than the usual screenshots, have two videos.

My first batch of Blender Tools made mods have been updated.

A. Davies (new SCS cargo added)
AIM
Allinson

Joining the combo party is my Wychwood Brewery themed skins, those of you on my FB group will already be familiar with these skins, I have finally decided to release the pack publicly.

Pack includes 6 standalone trailers, custom cargo for each, a Renault Premium Marston’s skin and AI combos.

This mod can also be downloaded from Steam Workshop.

As a reminder, these mods are made for 1.27 and will NOT work on 1.26 or older.

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.
