Hochtief & Buckfast trailers

As of March 9th 2015 the Buckfast trailers were merged into a Combo Pack with the truck skin.

As mentioned earlier, these are stand alone buckfast trailers that will be available in several company yards. (see company mods page for details.)

Update 27th Oct – New Volvo 2012 Grills

The new Volvo has two variations, the FH & FH16. The Volvo FH has a black grill and is available for engines with 540HP or less.
The Volvo FH16 has the chrome grill and is available with engines of 540HP and upwards.

This mod allows you to chose between the black or chrome grills for all engine power. The FH/FH16 badge will be shown correctly for which ever colour you choose. Engines with the letter “B” at the end are the alternate versions, without a “B” are the stock SCS versions.

Preview: Neal Haulage

So what am I working on? I found Neal Haulage while looking through Google for skins to make.

When I started this project, I had no idea how time consuming it was going to be. We’ve got all the blue and yellow/orange that fades in places, while not exactly difficult it was sure time consuming. What surprised me was how long I spent making, positioning, and resizing the Topline V8 logo. All told 40 minutes and it’s not finished yet, not sure if the image will be big enough to see, but the “8” isn’t there yet, just the place holder I put in (which happens to be the Scania logo.)

Maybe tomorrow will be a better day.

Update – 25th – Scania Template

Thanks to a little help from Ohaha on the SCS forum, I have learnt how to make my own templates.

As a result I have done away with the original Scania V4 mod template by maghetto and made my own. Any one familiar with his original template will understand the issues with it, mainly the overly thick black lines which made accuracy to place delicate/accurate paintwork on the front grill very difficult.

I have now created my own template for the front grill and added it to original Scania templates by szeryff123. The new template should be much easier to work with and I hope it will be useful for you. The Scania template folder now has two folders: Original and IJs ScanV4 — The original folder is szeryff123’s template for the original model and the latter is of course my version for the v4 mod.

These templates and the templates for the new Volvo FH are all included in the template archive found on the Truck Skinning tutorial page.

Dance demons, don't you know. This is a modding, modding tango.
