The Big Stobart Mod v6.1 has been released. You may notice the switch from 6.0.6 > 6.1 basically it means the BSM with AI is in a release stage that I am happy with. As a result there will be no more updates any time soon. There are still things I plan to add to it and there are things I will change in due course. But for now I am happy with its progress and status and will be looking towards some other mods.
Updates included in this version are:
ESL Volvos, Biomass/Energy Volvos, DAF Autologics, and Scania Toplines for the M-Sport. You may also notice I have changed the M-Sport trailer slightly when you see it in game. 😉
The next version of the BSM has now been released and includes the following updates.
Mercedes MP4: Doorhandles added. Apparently trapping your drivers in trucks with a bucket to pee in is illegal. Who knew. 😉
Highline (w/o windkit) – 3 ESL skins with ADR board for the Tankers.
MAN – Three ESL skins with ADR board for the tankers.
Mercedes 2009 – Three Tesco skins, one with the old Tesco crest two without.
Scania T – Old ESL Livery for the old ESL trailer.
This skin has been finished for a few days, I held off releasing it because I wanted to release another brand new mod along side it, but I became side tracked by a “secret project” I am working on.
As a result I have decided to release the first of my RJL only skins.
Please be aware that the RJL skins have been made for specific parts as I wanted to make them as close to the real deal as possible, because of this some alternate parts may not look right.
I’m really pleased by how this skin turned out and I am thinking of reworking it for the SCS trucks as well. It is far better than my original skin.
The download can be found at the bottom of the Stobart Skins page.
First up I have updated the Malcolm Trucks pack to fix an error and I have officially included the new DAF E6 in the old livery. Be aware this skin was made before I started using Ohaha’s DAF mod, so it is not fully compatible. Some custom parts will not be painted correctly.
Secondly I have updated the Big Malcolm Mod to include AI traffic. Currently there’s 3 Scanias pulling the curtain/fridge/walking floor trailers.
Please be aware that I have removed the charity trailer from the mod as it never really felt right including it since it was only ever pulled by Stobart. This removal does mean the game may reset the economy and cancel your current job.
Note for ETS2 website owners: If you share my mods on your websites; please be aware that the BSM and BMM Google Links have changed with their latest versions. You may need to update download links.
First of all I have updated the Painted AI Truck Traffic tutorial for the interior model. It was brought to my attention that SCS have now made exterior interior models for the dash, as a result the original tutorial for adding interiors was obsolete. The new method is far, far easier.
I have also added a video to show how to decimate the mod for the LOD version to help performance for lower end systems.
I will also be updating the adding/removing looks tutorial videos.
I have also made a skinable version of my Stobart AI Truck for Mercedes MP4. The model is 4×2 chassis, with side skirt, plastic side mirrors, and default sunshield. There a six blank skins for it. The model has a unique folder structure so should work with ALL AI traffic mods. I haven’t included a template in the file because it uses the same template as the SCS Gigaspace and most of you interested in this mod will likely have all truck templates any way. The mod is completely open so you can add/remove looks as required in blender.
The download link can be found on the Other Mods page.
And finally the Big Stobart Mod has now been updated to include the first batch of painted Stobart AI trucks. See the bottom of the BSM page for pictures or the change log for a list of changes.
More AI traffic will be added to the pack in future iterations.
