The Scania Front Grill Mod Update

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.
