Requests

No. Unfortunately requests are starting to take up way too much of my time and as a result I have decided to stop taking them.

I will however accept requests for custom Stobart names, so long as it’s for a cab that I have previously skinned in Stobart livery. (See Stobart Trucks page.)

Trailer Mod Updates for 1.24x

Please note because of the significant trailer changes in 1.24x trailers that are update will NOT work with 1.23x or older game versions. 

If you plan to stay on 1.23x or older, do not update trailer mods from this point. 

On that note lets talk about updates. There are several updates I need to make for ETS2 1.24x.

 

The first set of updates, trailer height and advanced coupling collisions have all been done and the mods are ready to go. However there are some “issues”. Unfortunately Blender doesn’t like animations, this means there is no possible way for me to include the new animation for trailer legs on mod trailers. My only hope is that the original authors will update their trailers.

For SCS model trailers I am able to use the SCS animation, so some trailers will have animated legs.

The next update is AI traffic related. The node for the driver in AI traffic has changed, this means in old AI traffic you will see the driver too low and too far forward. Essentially head-butting the steering wheel with their legs poking out of the front of the vehicle.

Because I wanted to rush out the advanced trailer compatibility I chose NOT to update AI traffic in my AI trucks/trailer combo packs. This will be done at a later date. The good news is, I have been planning on updating the Stobart AI Scanias as I felt they were too decimated and looks a bit fuzzy, so this change also gives me a reason to remake the Scania AI trucks. My AI van traffic will be the first to get the AI driver fix, followed by Stobart and then most likely alphabetical order for everything else.

Below is a list of all the mods I have updated (basically all trailers) if you think I have missed something please let me know. Also be aware, because I have rushed these updates out it is possible I have missed something that might cause a crash, if this is the case please do let me know. Hopefully I caught all the issues though. I’ve run all the mods through validate without issue so I should have caught any potentially CTD problems.

New Things!

Yeah about time I released something new. So here are a few new things.

BSM 7.0.1 & Poll Time!

Just a quick note, within moments of releasing the BSM 7.0 I realised there was an error and uploaded 7.0.1 I was hoping that it would be a silent upload and that no one downloading from the website would notice the change. But it has come to my attention that some of you were fast enough to get the original release.

Basically I had forgotten to disable the cargo for the removed M-Sport trailer, which would lead to many log errors and potentially a game crash in some circumstances.

So please do check if you downloaded from the website, that you are on 7.0.1 and not 7.0 you can do this by looking at the info screen in the mod manager.

Poll Time.

I am curious as to which trailer you would prefer to see in the BSM in the future.

Currently we have this beautiful, but old ported trailer for the Tesco 2 trailer.

However I am thinking of replacing it with this one that uses a slightly edited SCS cool liner.

Personally I prefer the original. But if enough people like the SCS model version I may change it.

Never Say Never

tbsm

So I have finally reached a point I am happy with for the latest Big Stobart Mod update, first some bad news. Two trailers have been removed.

The first to go was the Rugby trailer. This trailer was one of the first I did after the main green/white ones, unfortunately it really showed its age with the image quality. I was never really happy with it, but two years on and it just looked bad respectively so I have decided to remove it. Unfortunately finding good quality photos to use just aren’t easy to come by. So the trailer has been permanently retired from the pack.

The second to go is the M-Sport trailer, this is down to model issues and blender being a dick. I hope this trailer may return new and improved somewhere down the line, but for now I have removed it.

For the update there have been several improvements and fixes for the existing trailers and AI vehicles. All AI Stobart trucks now have the recognisable 3 white lights on the lower part of the grill.

Many of the trailers have also been updated to include the three red lights at the top centre part of the trailer. Several other fixes are also included, such as misplaced flares on the AI.

Now that the Steam Workshop fully supports zip files, the BSM will also be available there. Yeah, I know. Never say never.

2 New ATS releases

For those of you who don’t follow me on Steam Workshop, over the past week I have released two new mods to the Workshop.

The first is a Dunkin’ Donuts trailer that pulls the cargoes donuts, and Iced Beverages.

The seconds is a Sargento Cheese combo, the trailer pulls cheese and the skin is for Aradeth’s Volvo VNL.

Both mods and any future ATS skins I release will likely be workshop only.
