Do non-DLC players see the new trailers?

Recommended Posts

So I'm very egotistical and Bull Haulers are the best drivers we have in here in the States. That being said, I'm using the Cattlerack only mod from Metaltiger - http://metaltigersa.co.za/live.html
I'm just curious, Will players who don't own the new Scandinavia DLC see the livestock trailer? Or will it show up as one of the old trailers on their screens? I know with the 'HighPowered Cargo' DLC, the cargo showed up as an empty trailer to others who didn't have it.

Players who don't have the new contents of any DLC will likely see place holders on their screen and I don't think it would be any different with the Scandinavia DLC. It's very likely that any trailer a player don't have will be replaced by some stock trailer from the vanilla game in MP.

With the trailer of Volvo truck those who don't have Scandinavia DLC are able to see it, so it is probably the samething with the Cattlerack trailer

Just what I was thinking Mike, something like the Curtain trailer showing up. 
Phil and Firestarter, I noticed that before DLC was available, the Volvo/Scania truck trailer was in the About>>Trailerbrowser, but the livestock trailer was not put in there until the the DLC was downloaded.

The only cargos (in fact, trailers) that people without the scandinavian dlc can't see are the wind plant parts and the volvo cars. The trucks and cattle cargos, and scandinavian company's skins are stored on the base game.

The trailer browser don't show all trailers of the game, it shows the trailers linked to the cargos avaiable to the player. The cattle trailer is on the base game but the cargo is on the dlc.

Before the new DLC was released, I already saw the new live stock trailer. But players without the DLC won't see the Scandinavia company names on the trailers. I'm not sure if non-DLC players can see the Volvo/Scania trailer.

It's possible that those players only see a flatbed in the same way non-heavy cargo DLC players won't see helicopters or yachts being hauled.

From the very quick download and the small amount of MB's (don't remember the exact amount), we basically figured that everyone already has the DLC installed. Buying it on steam, merely unlocks the files for you (according to our assumption at least). So if that is the case, I guess it's safe to assume that players without the DLC would be able to see the trailers just like a player with the DLC sees them.

The livestock trailer is there since 1.17 update, so player without the Scandinavia DLC still could see it.

 

The Livestocktrailer in the AI traffic is not the same as the one you can haul.

At least the one in the traffic is empty, while the one you haul should have cows in it (at least i saw them on pictures).

Anyway, Is there anyone who doesn't have Scaninavia and can check it for us? xD

 

I have extracted the base.scs and dlc_north.scs into separated folders, i can check what is on the base game and what is on the dlc.

No, you're wrong. The game loads the cows and the trailer separately. Traffic and players uses the same trailer model. The livestock trailer is on the base game.

 

Haulable Trailer: livestock.sii

trailer : trailer.livestock {	accessories[]: .livestock.tchassis	accessories[]: .livestock.trwheel0	accessories[]: .livestock.trwheel1	accessories[]: .livestock.trwheel2        accessories[]: .livestock.cargo}vehicle_accessory: .livestock.tchassis{    	data_path: "/def/vehicle/trailer/livestock/chassis.sii"}vehicle_wheel_accessory: .livestock.trwheel0{	offset: 0    	data_path: "/def/vehicle/t_wheel/single.sii"}vehicle_wheel_accessory: .livestock.trwheel1{	offset: 2    	data_path: "/def/vehicle/t_wheel/single.sii"}vehicle_wheel_accessory: .livestock.trwheel2{	offset: 4    	data_path: "/def/vehicle/t_wheel/single.sii"} vehicle_accessory: .livestock.cargo{    	data_path: "/def/vehicle/trailer/livestock/cows.sii"}

Traffic Trailer: livestock_traffic.sii

trailer : traffic.trailer.livestock {	accessories[]: .traffic.livestock.tchassis	accessories[]: .traffic.livestock.trwheel0	accessories[]: .traffic.livestock.trwheel1	accessories[]: .traffic.livestock.trwheel2	cargo_mass: 19000				#traffic only}vehicle_accessory: .traffic.livestock.tchassis{    	data_path: "/def/vehicle/trailer/livestock/chassis.sii"}vehicle_wheel_accessory: .traffic.livestock.trwheel0{	offset: 0    	data_path: "/def/vehicle/t_wheel/single.sii"}vehicle_wheel_accessory: .traffic.livestock.trwheel1{	offset: 2    	data_path: "/def/vehicle/t_wheel/single.sii"}vehicle_wheel_accessory: .traffic.livestock.trwheel2{	offset: 4    	data_path: "/def/vehicle/t_wheel/single.sii"}

[...] But players without the DLC won't see the Scandinavia company names on the trailers. [...]

 

The company skins are on the base game.

^^^Very in depth, my hat goes off to you sir!
So all this being said, it's safe to say that all trailers in the game are visible by non-DLC players (aside from the actual cargo on the step-deck trailers, helicopter yacht windmill parts etc...)
