By now some of you will know that SCS pushed out a public beta update on Friday. This public beta includes a couple of changes to Volvo 2012 and Renault Magnum.
From a modding perspective these are good changes, they have made the front grill accessories. I have already made painted grills for both trucks that will be included in my Truck Accessory Pack.
Over the coming days I will be updating the Stobart Truck Skin Pack, to make the skins work with the painted grills. The Malcolm skins and JR Dixon skins are already updated.
What exactly has changed with the Volvo? Previously the SCS Volvo grills were tied to engine type. This is not longer the case. The silver and black grills are now accessories and can be selected in the shop separately from the engine. Only the FH badge will change based on engine type.

A new batch of updates have been released. The following mods have all been updated to work with skin changes for the Custom Trailer mod update.

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.

Well it’s a new year and we have a new update.
The ATS Accessory pack for SCS trucks has been updates on Steam to include some more parts. Woo?
With Road to the Black Sea releasing today I have some mods to release along side it.
First up PSG, PSG defunct, Allinson, BSM, and ATL have all had updates for bug fixing, trailer tweaking, and paint jobs tweaking.
Also coming later today is the RttBS SCS painted company vans. The mod is already on workshop as private and will go public as soon as the DLC launches.
The following mods have had the custom trailer mod skins updated.
In all cases the skins were not compatible with one or more of the newer SDC rear bumpers.
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.
The custom owned trailer mod has had a minor update to change the brightness of the flares.
The Truck Accessory Pack (formally Scania pack) has had mutliple parts added and the flare update.
Range T Additions:
Side Air Filter: Painted.
Front Fender Chassis: Full paint.
Front Inlay: Four semi paint/plastic variants.
Front Intake Cab/Chassis: Brush Steel look for stock and painted.
Window Frame: Painted.
Side Reflector: Painted.
Side Strip: Painted.
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.
