First off PC Hamilton & Michelin got updated on the 24th to fix a couple of issues. The Michelin double trailer skin wasn’t working due to a spelling error and the Hamilton trailer had the wrong material type set. Both issues were fixed and updated silently.
David Fox now has a full truck/trailer combo along with AI traffic and has been moved from the truck skins page to combos page. The old truck skin has also had a bit of a refresh for 4k size, fixed colours, and DAF DLC compatibility.
Another day another batch of updates.
First up the Renault Magnum Painted Grill mod has been updated to get the grill colour as close to the main body skin colour as humanly possible.
The Michelin Trailer Skin mod has been updated to include a Gigaliner combo for the SCS trailers.
The Replica Trailers Skin mod has also been updated to give the Profiliner skins a Gigaliner combo, as well as DHL and Wyvern Cargo additions.
And last but not least, a new addition to the page: Mermet Logistique.
First off lets start with the updates. As you know, SCS released the DAF Tuning DLC today, and some of my skins that were previously made fro 50keda’s DAF 105 and Ohaha’s E6 have been retro fitted to work with the new DLC instead. This does mean those skins no longer work with those old mods.
A few weeks ago I updated many mods just prior to Open Beta launching, some of those updates already included updated skins. So the ones not listed below should already be updated.
The template packs have been updated for the new DAF DLC parts. For those of you how don’t wish to download the whole pack you can temporarily get the two DAF packs here.
DAF DLC Updates:
TFL (Formally 50keda only)
Benton Bros (now also includes AI)
Malcolm Truck Skins
Stobart Truck Skins.
Grampian – Hell if I can remember. But what ever I did, I updated it.
McIntyre – Fixed forgotten skin fix after model update.
Scania Intake Mod – Fixed chassis model error.
Bacton Transport also got a DAF DLC update, along side a new trailer and AI combo
The NEW THINGS!
Yes there are new things. Those of you who are on my FB group will already know about these new mods, and probably wondered why two of them never appeared here. Well now you know, the skins were made for the DAF DLC.
So remember when I said I would update my mods for A: The new MG painted Scania intake and B: My painted intake mod for Streamline?
Yeah I never finished updating. Well now I have.
The following mods have all been updated for painted intakes, some are for the official MG DLC intake, some are for my Streamline intake, a couple are for both.
Spiersa & Hartwell
Stobart (Public Customs)
Wyvern Cargo (also fixed missing MAT file for shop icon.)
Please note: Stobart main pack and Malcolm still need to be finished and will be done at a later date.
Also note that I am planning on retiring the ex-Stobart skin pack.
A second blog post tonight as I update three mods.
First up my Engines mod has been updated and is now 1.28 functional (due to changes it is no longer 1.27 compatible). The DAF E6 now also has an appropriate badge.
Secondly the Scania Painted Intakes mod has been updated, not only have I fixed the slight discolouration (darker than main truck) I have also added the second UVmap so that they also work with all of SCS skins. There will be at least one more update for this mod at a later date, at which time I will also clean up any issues I may have missed in this one.
Be aware the Scania Painted Intake mod has had a file name change too. Be sure to manually remove the old one.
PC Hamilton has also been updated. Somewhere along the way the trailer “broke”. I am certain I updated the trailer but for what ever reason it had reverted to an older version pre-1.24 so the trailer sat too low and the advanced coupling was missing. Not entirely sure how this happened, but it’s fixed now.
Yup, August 1st is Yorkshire Day.
So here show a little Yorkshire Pride with this lovely Yorkshire Rose LED for the back of the cab. Available for all SCS trucks.
