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.

 

BT Mod Updates & Wychwood Brewery

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

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.

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.

Arclid Crash Fix

Normally I don’t make posts about silent updates (updates that occur within 2 minutes of a blog post) because it is rare that people will grab the mod before the update completes.

However, I have realised that last nights Arclid v4.0.1 update did NOT update on Google Drive – Google Drive failed to update it and I wasn’t aware, so the fix didn’t actually go live until this morning when I booted up the PC.

So for those of you using Arclid v4 please make sure you have v4.0.1 or your game will crash when it attempts to load the AI vehicle.
