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.

My first batch of Blender Tools made mods have been updated.

A. Davies (new SCS cargo added)
AIM
Allinson
American Sweets (new SCS cargo added)
AM Howie
Buckfast

 

Joining the combo party is my Wychwood Brewery themed skins, those of you on my FB group will already be familiar with these skins, I have finally decided to release the pack publicly.

Pack includes 6 standalone trailers, custom cargo for each, a Renault Premium Marston’s skin and AI combos.

This mod can also be downloaded from Steam Workshop.

As a reminder, these mods are made for 1.27 and will NOT work on 1.26 or older.

Michelin, Renault Grill, Arjan Eriks

The Renault Magnum painted grill mod has been updated to fix the 4×2 chassis issue preventing it from going under some trailers. Please be aware the scs file has changed names, so do remember to remove the old mod when updating.

I have released a Michelin trailers packs, the mod contains 3 skins. One for the SCS Krone Profiliner, one for the Schwarzmuller DLC Curtain trailer, and a standalone Jumbo trailer. DLC is NOT required for the mod to work.

There are no truck skins as the mod is meant as a complimentary Michelin DLC pack, though this may change in the future.

Arjan Eriks combo has also been released.

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.
