The next batch of updates have been released.
Arclid – now has a Volvo AI traffic combo.
Buckfast – Fixed AI driver position and updated model.
Essers – AI Driver position.
SBS Movers – Added AI combo to public release.
Wyvern Cargo -AI driver position
Yorkshire Tea – AI Driver position and switch to SCS model.
YPO – Added trailer and AI combo (moved to combos page)
The Big Malcolm Mod also hits version 4. This release was intended some time ago, but kept being put on hold. I have finally released version 4 with full AI combos. Tag lift Scania for walking floor trailer, midlift for all other trailers. Volvo pulls only the curtain and fridge and a MAN for the tanker.
First up I have updated the Malcolm Trucks pack to fix an error and I have officially included the new DAF E6 in the old livery. Be aware this skin was made before I started using Ohaha’s DAF mod, so it is not fully compatible. Some custom parts will not be painted correctly.
Secondly I have updated the Big Malcolm Mod to include AI traffic. Currently there’s 3 Scanias pulling the curtain/fridge/walking floor trailers.
Please be aware that I have removed the charity trailer from the mod as it never really felt right including it since it was only ever pulled by Stobart. This removal does mean the game may reset the economy and cancel your current job.
Note for ETS2 website owners: If you share my mods on your websites; please be aware that the BSM and BMM Google Links have changed with their latest versions. You may need to update download links.
First off the Woodside company replacement for Euroacres has been changed to replace BCP instead.
The Big Malcolm Mod has also had another update. The old walking floor trailer skin that was on the coolliner has been replaced by an edited version of the TZ Rommi walking floor model and now includes an extra skin variation.
The Big Stobart Mod and Nestlé mod have been updated to fix an error with the tanker model. When editing the tanker, I had accidentally deleted part of the pipes on the side by mistake. The model has been updated for these mods.
The Big Malcolm Mod has now been updated to Version 2. This update seems the SCS tanker being replaced by the editing TZ tanker.
It should be noted that I am not 100% satisfied with this skin yet, so it may change a little. I am already working on the next update for this mod. Though I can’t say when I will finish it.
First up the Cancer Charity Malcolm/Stobart trailer has had a skin tweak so the rear bumper is now red.
The Cancer Charity trailer, Red Bull trailer, Tesco Fridge (every punnet) trailer, and Children in Need trailer have all had tweaks in the mat file so stop them being so reflective. In sunlight it was causing them to appear very washed out.
A new trailer has also been added to the Big Stobart mod. Long over due perhaps, but one of the Find Madeleine trailers is now in the pack. It shares the same cargo as the Cancer Charity trailer.
Update 15:21 UTC: There was an issue with the Big Malcolm Mod (version 1.1) walking floor cargoes which stopped them from spawning. This issue has been solved. (version 1.1.1)
If you updated the BMM earlier please do so again. I have double checked the mod and I am confident this was the only issue.
First of all The BMM has had the same updates as the BSM and is now available to download. There’s no new content to mention, just internal changes.
As with the BSM the changes will be considered game changing so do finish your job before updating or the game will cancel it.
There’s also been a minor update to the BSM to fix an error. For some reason the cargo for the Charity and Fridge trailers simply were not set up correctly. I have absolutely no idea why this occurred and can only assume it was a 7zip glitch.
I was working with two windows, one with the old files and one with the new, deleting the old as I was adding the new ones. For some reason the cargo files for these trailers were not in the company in/out folder so there was no cargo for them to pull. There’s no possible way I could have “forgotten” them due to the method I was using to update, so I am really at a loss to explain what happened.
Either way, this is now fixed.
Hopefully all errors have been caught this time. But due to the size of the mods, particularly the BSM, errors are going to sneak past. To fully test a mod like this can take weeks of game play, so if you do encounter an issue with with either mod. Please let me know and do send the game.log.txt file with the report.
The BSM has been updated to correct an error with the Tesco Rail container. I had missed out a line in the AI config that made it so the container didn’t show on the AI trailers, so trucks appeared to be pulling just the skeletal part.
Both BSM and BMM have had minor updates to the charity/cancer trailer.
Both the BMM and BSM have had minor updates.
These updates are just internal changes that adds info to the game log to help me help you if something should go wrong.
This update is not necessary, but if something should stop working due to a game update it may help me locate the issue.
Just as a reminder: The BSM & BMM are designed for game version 1.14x and above. They will NOT work on 1.13x and older.
Both the BSM and BMM have been updated.
The BSM has had several skin tweaks to add “trailer” numbers to the back doors to better replicate their real life counter parts.
Both mods have been updated to change the wheels of the Charity trailer from the default SCS trailer wheels to the wheels that came with the trailer model as the default SCS ones are too large and makes them looks as though they are cutting into the trailer.
Please Note: there may be a further update to the BSM over the weekend. So for those of you who still have limited bandwidth or other wise don’t want to download the BSM twice in the same week, you may wish to hold off. Whether or not the BSM gets another update will depend on how the vote goes for the poll which will be posted shortly.
I’m currently happy with the BMM and have decided to release version 1. If any one spots any issues do let me know.
Full details & download link can be found on the Big Malcolm Mod page and BMM Changes page.
Skins include curtain, fridge, walking floor, tanker and the Charity Cancer trailer (pulled by Stobart, but added to this mod by request).
Company replaces LKWLog.
Please Note: Credit for the cancer trailer model goes to czak (original), Freezer (GTS Update,) and axelrol (ETS2 update.) The skin is my own work.
