I’ve just released an update for the Knowles mod.
I hadn’t realised that the wheels were also being used for the trailer, which would cause a crash when picking up/passing the trailer in game.
If you’re still using the compatibility patch you wouldn’t have had issues, but for those of who you updated your wheels and removed the patch you would suffer crashes when you see the trailer.
It’s suggested you update the knowles mod immediately.
Another Shipley fix has been released. Before the release originally went public I fixed a spelling error that would cause a crash. Somewhere along the way the old file somehow made it back into the mod (or I fixed only the user trailer file and forgot to fix the AI file) this has been fixed.
A new combo pack has also been released: Macritchie Highland Distribution
The pack contains a Volvo (Ohaha tweaks mod required for the front grill and lightbox,) and an SDC trailer.
I’ve had to update the BSM due to an error with one of the trailers that causes a game crash.
The crash is caused by me forgetting to update the lod file for the new (white) Tesco trailer.
If the game attempts to load the AI trailer, it will first load the lod file which was missing, causing the game to crash. If you previously updated to 1.0.4 please make sure you update to 188.8.131.52 ASAP.
Unfortunately it is not always possible for me to spot these errors before release as loading player trailers or looking in the truck browser won’t cause the problem, it’s only when the it loads for AI traffic, which is why this wasn’t caught earlier. I apologise for any inconvenience.
If you’re using version 1.0.3 or older this issue will not affect you.
SCS have now released the open beta version 1.9.1s patch on steam.
This patch is the big AI patch we have all been waiting for. If you wish to read more about it you can do so on SCS official blog post: Open Beta Blog
For those of you using steam and want access to the beta version, open your library, right click on properties > Betas (tab) and select Public_beta from the drop down menu.
I will be checking my mods to make sure all are compatible/up to date. For those using my company/trailer skins and truck skins they should be completely functional and unaffected.
Mods that ARE incompatible:
Any physics mods
Any map mods
My Mods that have been updated:
All Stand Alone Trailers.
Big Stobart Mod
In the case of my mods, you will be able to run these without an noticeable problem. However you will see “<ERROR> The last rear axle has to have index 0.” appear in the console log if you check it. I will endeavour to fix this issue as soon as possible. But as stated you can continue using them as is without issue in the meantime.
