1.28 Open Beta Updates

So with open beta comes more changes, mostly COG changes for trailers to match the ATS changes that came with the Heavy Cargo DLC.

While the mods will function just fine (with warnings in the log) I have decided to update the “offline” mods today. Be aware that all the trailer/combo mods are updated for 1.28 Open Beta and will not work on older game versions.

There are 88 mods that will be updated so I am not going to list them all here. But all mods found on the combo page and company/Trailer pages should be updated including both the Big Malcolm Mod and Big Stobart Mod.

The fuel tanker pack also gained a new trailer as part of its update.

The BSM update also includes an SDC curtain for Explore and a TYCO trailer and AI combo.

 

For those from my FB Group wondering where the NEW things are, I will release those after 1.28ETS goes public.

 

New Releases & Updates

Update: Stobart Truck skins pack is updated for the Tyco DAF. I updated it on Steam some time ago but forgot to include it in the offline version. 

First new release is Jost Group for ETS2 including an AI combo, Mercedes Mp4 & two trailers.

Carlile has also been updated to include an AI combo. Be aware because of the changes in 1.6.2 (Heavy Cargo DLC patch) this mod is no longer compatible with 1.6.1x or older game versions.

 

I’ve also added a new bullbars mod for ATS, it adds the oversized banner to the bullbars of the Peterbilt 389. DLC is not required, but you will need game version 1.6.2.

The ATS XP mod has also been updated for the doubles code in the economy file. This means the XP mod requires game version 1.6.2 and will no longer work on older versions.

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.
