Some Updates & A General Note

First up; all ATS mods have been updated. However I have taken the decision to only support ATS mods on the Steam Workshop. If you previously used the offline versions you will need to switch to Steam Workshop versions.

Click here to be taken to my Steam Workshop Page for ATS.

Next up; all the Painted AI Vans in SCS company liveries mods have been completely reworked from scratch. All models in these packs are now SCS models that I have UVmapped personally. (Previously the old transit used Jazzycat’s models.)

As part of the rework, the companies are now split between the old Transit, the 2016 Transit, and the Peugeot Boxer. A similar update will come to the real replica vans at a later date.

Next up we have a brand new addition to the page, Anhalt Logistics (combo).

Anhalt contains a skin for the new Scania, two cisterns, and Fridge, and AI combo. This mod is designed for game version 1.31 and above only as it uses the new cables system.

AIM, Allinson, and Wychwood brewery mods have also been updated for 1.31 cables. Wychwood has also received a AI truck rework (now fully Blender Tools made) and has 10 new trailers.

The Renault Magnum & Premium painted grill mods have also been updated ready for 1.31 cables.

Please note: I do not consider cables to be an important update, so I have no plan to rush out updates for cable connections. Non-updated trailers will continue to function without issue, but they will not have cables visible when connected.

Some of my older mods really need some TLC, while I did a quick BT convert of old B2SCS made AI trucks, they still need to be updated with BT made models. So my goal over the coming months is to update all my old mods, make them all AI combos, all models being BT made and as I go they will get the cable connections added to trailers.

Be aware that I do have over 200 mods, so I will be doing them in alphabetical order to make sure nothing is missed this time around.

Preview and Combo Updates

First up the BANKS of England, Horseshoe/Laysoft, and RR Transport trucks/trailers have been moved to the Combo Skins page as mentioned earlier.

For those of you paying attention you may have noticed I mentioned there being two versions of ex-Stobarts. The first version will be as expected white trucks with the lower red part & chevrons and will be called “clean”.

The second version of the pack will be called dirty and the trucks will look like this:

If you look carefully the areas where there were logos/truck name you can still make out the designs, giving it the appearance that the decals have been pealed off and the truck has not been resprayed to hide the colour difference between the old white and paint kept fresh under the decals.

I know it’s a very minor thing, but what they hell. If I’m going to make ex-Stobarts I’m gonna do it right. The clean and dirty packs will be compatible with each other for those who want to try both.

Children in Need 2014 Trailer Preview

Well it’s November now, with CiN on Friday 14th here’s a little peek at the named side of the trailer.

Full details on how to get your name on the trailer are available in the sticky blog post, donations will be accepted up until Wednesday 12th. After that no donations will be accepted as I’ll need the time to finish the trailer to make sure it’s available for Friday to download.

A Couple of Updates

First of all I have updated the Glendinning truck so that it now has the correct font.

The main reason for the lack of updates is due to playing with a few trailer mods, so my time is being spent playing with those.

One of these models will also be joining the BSM and may also be included in the BMM. newstob

This trailer will not be added as a new trailer, but as a replacement for the “Green Solid” variant.

So with the 1.9 patch out (up to 1.9.2s last I checked) I have been hard at work updating my mods that include stand alone trailers, to fix incorrectly indexed wheel pointers in Blender.

At the time of writing both my Red Bull and Buckfast mods have been updated, but I am waiting on The Big Stobart Mod as I am intended to also add two new trailers.

Here’s a sneak peak at one of them.
