The more I add to this mod, the more I wish I hadn’t included “painted” in the name. There’s more standard accessories in it now than there are painted stuff. Oh well. Maybe I’ll rename it next year.
In the mean time the mod has now been updated to include full and half headlights for the grill lights, which also include white or orange strobe options.
The chassis (main) lights have also been updated to include strobe options and the Scania logo is now a paintable accessory as well.
Rather than the usual screenshots, have two videos.
First of all, I have updated the AI van packs for ETS2 to account for the 1.24 driver node change. But be aware at the time of writing there is still an issue with the UPS truck. For some reason the node won’t save in blender.
I have also added a new Scania Intake mod. This is the 1.24 game version of the old painted grill mod.
The mod can be found on the Other Mods page directly below the old painted grill mod. Be sure to download the correct mod for your game version.
Using the 1.23 mod on game version 1.24 will disable all the new features in the Scanias, while using the 1.24 version on game version 1.23 or older will result in a game crash. If you are using the 1.24 version, do make sure to read the warning.
Due to the changes to the Scania models in game version 1.23 I decided to remake the Scania front grill mod. The new mod is 100% my own work using only edited SCS parts.
The new mod now has THREE variations, the no lights version, with lights ‘V’ shape, and Stobart 3 lights. Please remember these mods replace the same parts, so you can only have one active at any given time.
Mod can be found on the ‘Other Mods’ page.
Edit: 17:50 UTC – The Renault Grill has also been updated for accessories DLC compatibility.
Earlier Theosz mentioned about the Scania Grill mod not working with the SCS/DLC skins.
This is due to the fact the original mod by Maghetto was made before UVmap 3 was added to the game in March 2014.
Because he chose this time to ask the question, it occurred to me that I need to update the Scania front Grill mod for the upcoming accessories DLC. Other wise none of the accessories will show from outside of the cabin. In the process of updating the mod I have found it would be very easy for me to include partial support for UVmap 3.
The observant amongst you will notice I said ‘partial’. The downside to making the grill compatible with UVmap 3 is that the SCS/DLC skins were never made with painted grill support. This means although the skins will appear on the cabs now, the grill will be painted whatever colour happens to be on that part of the template (bottom left corner). I’ve gone through all the DLC skins I have and most look fine. There is at least one where the colour from the side overlaps slightly. But for the most the skins are working.
It should be noted that it is unclear at this time if all the accessory nodes are in the current release of the game. This mod may require a further update once the DLC is released for full support.
