So the custom trailer mod update has finally released and comes with several changes and new features.
First up we have the aero sideskirts for the SDC Aeroliner to go with the Aeroliner rear bumper. While I had these made for a while, I was never really happy with them so never previously released them. I’ve figured what the heck, someone may get use out of them right?
They can be accessed by selecting the aero chassis.
My Custom Trailer mod on Steam Workshop has now been updated to v17.
This versions brings one of the new SCS tippers into the mod. As with my other SCS based trailers, this will have the custom reflectors, marker slots, mudflap, and rear bumpers. For most of the sideskirt options I think SCS did a pretty thorough job this time so there’s nothing new there.
The following mods have been updated for the 1.37 Open Beta build that released when SCS release Open Beta. In most cases the updates are just for 1.37 changes, but there are a few bug fixes and updates. Some mods may have new skins for OT (mostly my custom trailer).
The blog mods are already in my google drive folder ready to be sync’d.
The Steam Workshop has had updates for my Truck Parts mod which adds the updated flares I have previewed on my Facebook page. A few under the hood tweaks that you probably won’t notice as well as full removal of the previously disabled R/Streamline front grills that became redundant.
The Custom Trailer mod has also had an update. It has the same flare update as the truck pack, as well as new sequential flares for indicators.
The PSG (& Defunct) pack, Nestle pack, and Children in Need trailer have all been updated to fix multiple issues on the SDC-like trailers and a shadow issue on the CiN trailer.
Tomorrow I will also be updating the SCS AI vans pack to include compatibility for the RttBS DLC. Some companies from the older packs are present in the new DLC so they will be enabled for the appropriate countries in preparation for the DLC release on Thursday.
Tomorrow I will also be starting a new phase of updates for ATL, Allinson, PSG, and Nestle. The trailers currently using “SDC like” shapes will be getting remade using models from my Custom Trailer mod as part of this process the skins will be getting remade, since they will be sharing the same parts the UVmap will be the same for custom OT skins which means I will also be adding OT skins for my custom trailer into the packs.
No time frame for release. When I am happy with them, I will release them.
Small update this month for the Custom Owned Trailer mod on Workshop. Remade the flares from scratch, added a new colour, added the half/half orange and whites. Also added support for the dog-ear markers from SCS.
Some of the older trailers also had static markers removed in favour of slots. Also tweaked the location of slots on the normal curtain as they were too far from the back boards.
But on my tombstone when I go, just put 'Death By Rock'n'Roll'
