Words are are all I have, so thank you. You know who you are.
Full painted mudguards, slots for air horns.
Sometimes I get the feeling I make more blogposts since I retired than I did the rest of the year ‘active’. Hmmph.
Originally I was going to wait and release a completed mod. But in truth it’s been a struggle to finish reworking skins for the old Ford van, so I can’t imagine how I’m going to feel about remaking skins for a completely new Ford (2016) model van.
So rather than wait, I have decided to release the half complete (but fully working) version instead. My biggest annoyance was the vans appearing in countries they just shouldn’t be in, this update fixes that and I felt it was more important to push out that update than hold off until the new Ford van and skins were added.
Mod is of course Steam Only now, but the full change log and images can still be found on the appropriate page.
I fully intended to release this alongside my retirement announcement, but due to the Workshop Uploader being a pedantic prick, I had to tweak a few things first.
Due to some naming changes in the def files it is suggested that you sell any trailers and remake/buy them. It’s not a necessity, but it is highly recommended.
1.5 includes HCT trailers. Woo. Please note there are no painted bumpers for the primary trailers at this point, but they will be added in a future update.
First of all I would like to issue an apology to modhub.us in my previous post I included them along the pirate mod hosters that do not care about the community or the content creators. The mod was initially uploaded by a Russian site (by it’s admin) and copied to several others.
On contact modhub removed the mod without quibble. I unfairly threw you in the mix with the ‘bad eggs’ so I apologise to you.
From here this post is lengthy, sorry not sorry. I do ask you take the time to read it though as it should answer any questions you might have.
Over the past 6 or so months I have been toying with the idea of retiring from public modding.
Update: The mod has been relisted as of 9am December 5th and will stay on the Workshop.
Also I would like to apologise to modhub.us, on contact you have removed the mod immediately from your site. I unfairly assumed you were just another pirate mod hosting site. Your actions say otherwise.
As you maybe aware the Owned Trailer mod has been removed from Steam Workshop. This is not an accident.
Due to the following pirate sites:
Illegally hosting my mod in direct violation of the license agreement, the mod is no longer available to the public. What you have to remember is I make mods for myself, I release them to the community if interest is shown, however I will not support pirates.
Just so you know, this mod will stay as “friends only” so the few friends on my Steam friends list can still use it.
I’ve released a new custom owned trailer mod, this was intended as a private mod but it got a lot of (positive) attention so I figured what the hell.
The mod has been release (exclusively) on Steam Workshop.
