  1. @ScaniaFan89 no need to quote the whole original post. Also this is said in the post you quoted:
  2. Going to be busy most of this weekend but hopefully I'll be able to stream tomorrow evening.

     

    For now though, here are some screenshots of the updated 'UK Showmans Roadtrain':

    And some views of the 'parts':

    The back trailer needs the most work out of the whole combination, as the curtain hooks are in the wrong place (as seen in the image) and it is about 0.5m too long for the combination to be allowed on the UK roads (this trailer specifically needs to be shortened). I really wish that this could someday be in MP but this is a mod that is not save editing so it wont happen.

     

    !This is a work-in-progress mod and will not be distributed at this time, asking for it will be ignored!

  3. Some more pics of the EU B-Double (WIP):

    Once the ETS2 update is released I plan to release these ASAP. These will not work without the update so there is no point in me releasing or distributing them yet. If you are wondering how I have them working; this is ATS with the map, trucks, trailers etc from ETS2.

     

    I have fixed most issues I was having with it (mainly to do with the weight) however there is still one issue I need to solve:

  4. Hopefully I'll be able to get my mod site running in the next few weeks, but I'm also thinking of setting up a blog (already in the making) and possibly a Twitter account to post progress and updates to. The new website will not only feature MP mods, but will feature some of the SP mods I make and any mod tools that I release.

     

    Would people like to see video or written guides on save editing and ETS2/ATS modding in general? I'm happy to do either or even a live stream of just making a mod (depending of whether twitch allows it, since it is game related)

     

    Any opinions greatly appreciated.

      I prefer Written Guides as it's easier to follow at your own pace. If it's clearly written, users don't have to scroll through a video to find a bit they missed @Forerunner

      me too want Written Guides is more easy!!!
      I would love to it's possible a update of this mod (Ultimate MP Truck Customisation) with support for the new transmissions volvo - scania (12+2) ret and mercedes 16 speed´s! for the ETS and for the ATS also it would be great one mod same. regards

  5. Going live on Twitch shortly with this:

    Oh, and traffic is set to 7x the default.

  6. Decided to make a trailer based on the "Denby Eco-Link":

    J4MkQcX.png

    27ib5p4.png

    vR5k08O.png

    HGgAc5a.png

    5BNDSSM.png

     

    Basically the "Denby Eco-Link" was an attempt at a UK legal LHV using steering on the first trailer to ensure the turning circle was complied with; however it was not allowed for many legal reasons (I was a nerd enough to read the Road Traffic Act to find them ;)).

     

    At this point in time, this is NOT going to be released or sent to anyone. Once it is finished and working properly, and SCS have released the updated, I plan to release this. For those who are curious the screenshots are in ATS with ETS2's content. Too bad this'll never be in MP.

      Wish this could be available in MP, but I understand that they won't accept this..

  7. More "ETS2" double trailers:

    and a test of mixing the 2 Heavy Cargo DLCs (since I saw a truck in the UK with this sort of combination):

      @WilnoWolf no as I made it as distributing it would not be allowed as it is, as fading said, actually ATS

      hoo nice trailer

  9. Just went for my first ATSmp drive in a long time (not counting the staff races as a drive). went quite well, had 1 player being a bit troublesome but not malicious or harmful enough to warrant a report in my opinion.

    and a screenshot of the truck because why not.

      I see you're changing the trailers already... :P 

  10. For those curious as to how the new trailers look for people without the DLC:

    However to people without the DLC they wont have cargo. And yes, I did make them.

      nice trailer

  11. Trying out different combinations for when MP supports the DLC. Sticking to 1 full-length trailer at a time.

    zgb23Li.png

    well I got this round into this quarry so i'd say its manoeuvrable enough.

  13. I'll mostly play ATS in singleplayer as its too quiet in MP even with this new DLC it'll only be busy for a week or 2. So I have sorted my singleplayer truck out:

    Close up view of the Trailer:

    DkVVekY.png

    The 'A Trailer' (as its known in B Doubles) is made from a shortened Fuel trailer with the chassis frame lowered at the back slightly.

     

    View of the 2nd trailer with how the joint looks:

    qCM9cCz.png

     

    I could add more trailers (and may for some pics), but this is mainly what i'll drive in singleplayer as I can never take this into MP. Once ETS2 supports these I may take them 'across the pond' so to speak and drive them around ProMods.

      Can modders make trailers with multiple pivot points now?

    3. Forerunner

      Forerunner

      Yes, ATS supports it as the DLC trailers are either 2 or 3 parts

      Well, Maybe I should have looked into that before posting. However, that just makes this more epic.
