Previously I mentioned that a vote would be coming up for Patrons, now that all current mods are updated to work with 1.38 I am going to be giving Patrons a chance to vote on what comes next. It might be an update to an existing mod, a reissue of an old mod that has yet to return to the site, or even a brand new mod. As always, Patreon votes will mean whatever is picked will be a Patreon exclusive for a time.
As for everyone else, the last of the mods to be updated are now done. Nestle and Williams also got cargo icons for the cargo market.

A bunch of mods have been updated for 1.38 changes and a couple of fixes. Nothing much to say.
Big thanks to my Patron on Patreon. You’ll be getting a special poll soon. 😁

Moving forward I probably won’t be announcing on the blog when I update Workshop mods. Those of you who subscribe will know when they update, so I think posting here about them isn’t really necessary. As it stands all ATS/ETS2 mods on Workshop are 1.38 compatible.
As for the site I’ve pushed through a few updates.

WARNING: Please read and understand the blog – changes made due to FH Tuning means you will lose accessories in the future if you ignore the information in this blog.
So before we get started highlighting changes, I would just like to point out that moving forward I will be using OneDrive over GoogleDrive/Backup and Sync because of changes they made that made caused it to be less user friendly and require additional unnecessary steps just to share links. I would honestly rather pay Microsoft £3 a month for more storage than get 15gb free from Google with this stupid changes. Any issues with downloading please do let me know.
Also note that the content within rar files will also change, those of you who have file extensions visible will notice the mod file is now ZIP and not SCS. This is an intentional change, please do not extract the ZIP or you’ll make a mess of your mod folder.
General changes: In all cases Volvo skins in the packs were made 4k and have changes to support the new FH Tuning DLC.

It’s taken a while, but I’ve finally rebuilt Anhalt mod. Aside from issues with textures from 1.36? I was having issues with how the SCS cargo mixed with the cisterns.
As such I have decided to remove the SCS cargo for this trailer and link it to it’s own. Long term that will help me as I don’t need to play around with Blender for more trailers.
So rejoice, Anhalt is now live. Please note this mod is hosted on OneDrive not Google Drive. Any issues downloading let me know.
With my initial Mack update I made the decision to not replace the SCS truck model to remove the Mack badge. However after careful consideration I have made the choice to reverse that decision.
The only real downside to this action is that it will make the mod incompatible with all other mack mods that do the same thing. It wasn’t a choice I made lightly, I don’t normally touch SCS models as a replacement, but I felt it was for the benefit of the mod overall.
Had SCS made the right call and separated it themselves like they should have, none of this would have been an issue. I remain hopeful that they will reconsider in the future. If they ever make a tuning pack they will need to anyway. For something that would take them literally 5 minutes to fix, I am quite disappointed. But it is what it is.
The mod update is live.
Today sees the AI vans (real) update on Steam Workshop, along with the sound changes for 1.37 this update comes with new postal services skins for the countries in RttBS DLC.
Skins include PTT, Bulgarian Post, Speedy, Econt, Posta Romana, and Pinkpost.
JR Dixon was updated to disable the Merc spawning in incorrect places.
Workshop SCS Company AI vans mods updated for 1.37 sounds.
Real Company AI vans will be updated later (hopefully this week), I want to add a few skins.
PSG mod will not be returning to the site for 1.37. The poll on Facebook said people would rather wait until OT skins are added than release right now, so that’s what I will do. This does mean the PSG update won’t be any time soon. Most likely Autumn.
As well as the bulk updates below, the Nestlé pack has also had a major overhaul. All freight market trailers have been remade, now with slightly different configurations. The skins are now all available for my Custom Owned Trailer mod including two Aero skins that are exclusive to OT and not on freight market trailers.
The tanker, which was previously using TZ Rommi’s Schwarzmuller tanker, are now using SCS’s new OT food tanker, there are two skins for it one on chrome and one on painted body. Both for the 3-axle configuration. The full painted one also appears in freight market and AI traffic.
Note: I had to wait on updating Steam mods other wise it would count as a “leak”. I’ll start pushing those through now. Blog mods are already live.

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.
