New AI Combos

Now that the AI driver nodes are fixed, and based models of trucks made, it opens the door for some (mostly) quick and easy new AI trucks.

So with that in mind there are some new AI combos added to existing mods.

Grampian has both Scania and Volvo 2012 (with Ohaha painted grill) AI added.
Macritchie has the Volvo 2009 (with Ohaha painted grill) AI added.
Shipley has DAF AI added.
Thompsons Plant Hire has Scania AI added.
Williams Transport has DAF E6 (with Ohaha grill) AI added.
Wilson McIntyre has been removed from the Company/Trailers mod page, has been given a stand alone trailer (with proper skin rather than the one sided paint edit for SCS models) merged with the paintjob, and given AI.

Next Batch of Updates

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.

 

Blair International & Updates

First up the following mods have been updated for the AI driver placement.

American Sweets
A.W. Jenkinson
Bartrums

The Marshalls PLC mod has also been updated for the flare placement of the beacon. Please note that the issue is an SCS one where the flare will not appear in the correct position as stated by the model. I have done the best I can to get it as close to the beacon as possible. Hopefully one day SCS will address the issue.

By request Blair International has also been added and can be found on the Combos page. The mod includes two trailers (red curtain and white fridge) as well as a DAF XF 105 skin (more will come at a later date) the combo will also appear in AI traffic.

Happy New Year

So to see in the new year I have updated several mods.

BSM: Let’s start with some good news; Ekualizer has finally come back to me in regards to the Scania 143m model and we are a go. So the BSM has had a minor update to include appropriate credits in the file. If you’re using 6.3 then consider this an optional update, there is NO new content.

Mercedes Actros AI: Next up we see some new Actros traffic; I had a poll on the FB group and the majority of people seemed interested in having SCS like stock MP4 trucks in the AI. So I have released a mod to enable the Gigaspace in traffic and it should pull all available trailers, including mod trailers that haven’t been linked to specific ai cabs. Mod can be found on the “Other Mods” page.

AW Jenkinson: Then we have an AI update for A.W. Jenkinson, ai trucks include the MP4, Volvo 2012, and Scania Highline. I’ve also updated the Volvo 2009 so that the skin (and optional lightbox) works for Ohaha’s new Volvo Classic mod.

Banks of England: BoE also sees an AI update and also sees the first Renault I have made for AI. 🙂

Knowles Transport: Another update for the AI, the Volvo 2012 has been dragged into service to pull the Knowles trailer.

AI Vans: And finally we have another update for the AI Vans. This update sees two UK skins U-Benders, and British Heart Foundation. The latter is a replacement for the fictional green/yellow Plumbers van.

Hungary also sees a new livery in Szabofrigocargo.hu

And finishing up with two Slovakian skins in lokapetit, and Goro30.

Big Stobart Mod v6.3 Released

tbsm

So it’s almost the end of the year and I suppose it is only fitting that the final blog post of the year will be the announcement of the final BSM update. And yes I do mean the last BSM update (pretty much).

So first I should probably cover why this will be the last BSM update. It’s fairly simple; there’s really nothing left to add for me. Short of compatibility updates, bug fixes and tweaks, all the main work is done and it’s safe to say that this mod has far exceeded what I had planned when I made my very first Stobart company mod. The only reason to update the mod now is if Stobart bring out a fancy new trailer design. But who knows what the future is going to bring and what may become of the BSM down the line.

So with that news out of the way; let’s move on to the new additions.

First up Oakfield joins the crew pulling both the Elite Dreams trailer and the SCS logs trailer.

Then we have the addition of the Volvo 2009 with four names pulling general Stobart trailers and the Maddie trailer.

There’s also a few extras thrown in for good measure and a few fixes for the “no suitable trailer” error.

So as this the final blog update of 2015, I shall wish you all a Happy New Year and hope to see you early in the new year with some new updates.
