First up, the first entry for the May Day Special Request event has been picked, completed and uploaded. Congrats to Michael King for his entry being chosen.
The Thompsons Plant Hire combo can be found on the combo page. Remember RJL’s Scania modifications mod is required for the truck skin.
The Trailer Training mod has also been updated to try and lower the frequency of the trailer spawning.
There has also been an update for the BSM. I have been editing the TZ Rommi Bodex Walking Floor to make it appear more like a 110 Stas, the model Stobart use. To this end I have removed the large Bodex mud flap from the rear. Flipped the UVmap of the rear box (right handside) so that the Stas logo appears the right way around. I have remapped some pieces to allow individual skinning and I have also removed the side doors for the Bodex, to get it the appearance of solid sides as the Stas model has. I may make a few more tweaks at a later date, but for now I am happy enough to release it for the pack.

First up the PC Hamilton company mod and DAF truck skin have been updated.
The trailer has been updated so that the correct fonts are now used.
The DAF has been updated to give a subtle metallic look on the darker blue areas, the fonts have also been updated.
Two Scania skins have also been made and are included in the mod with the DAF.
The dark blue base colour for the DAF/Scania has been left open so you can play with how dark the blue is to suit your preference.
I have now completed my Stobart skins update, there are a few new skins as well.
The good new for those that like to keep a tidy mod folder is that I have also included a truck pack. It includes every single truck on the Stobart Truck Skin page in one mod. The individual files are also still available for those that prefer to pick and chose. The truck pack can be found at the bottom of the page.
Please make sure you remove all my previous Stobart truck mods from your mod folder before you use the truck pack. Some/all skins may need to be repurchased in game.

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.
First up a new mod that adds new wheels painted white. Intended for the Stobart skins, but can be used on any vehicle/skin.
Download link can be found on the “other mods” page.
Also just to show off my latest custom skin by request, Irish Haulage.
Made sure all Stobart trucks have only the appropriate icon files and update the classic stobart so it has it’s own classic logo in the paint shop rather than the standard logo.
Also added a Michael Jepsen Volvo 2012 by request.
A quick note on the new Phoebe Grace Volvo skin, the “stobartgroup.com” text was the wrong shade of green and has been updated to make it the correct shade.
New addition of a Malcolm Logistics Volvo (classic FH16).
With the release of patch 1.7 and the new Volvo FH, I have made the new Volvo FH version of Stobart’s Phoebe Grace (complete with correct fleet number.)
As with the FH16 the globetrotter and black wheel arches can’t be painted with out affecting all Volvos in the game, so I left them alone.
2pm BST – UPDATE: I’ve made some improvements to the skin. The little bit of red on the doors above the lights has been removed as it over ran a little bit. Corrected the left side so the green S’s are the right way around and made the white/silver reflective S on the sides a little bit more visible.
3pm BST – UPDATE: I have also updated the skins for the Stobart Scania & the StobartRail Scania to fix the left hand side S logos.
