Hi @Forerunner,

 

That's a nice mod but it's not working on my pc. I did what you wrote in your post

How to use:

1. Download the tool and extract 'PaintedTrailerTool.exe' and 'emptytrailer.sii' into your mod folder (not a subfolder).

2. Open an image editing software (such as Paint) to get the RGB values you want.

3. run the program and follow the prompts.

4. Open the game and activate the mod with the name you chose.

5. You can now use the mod as you would any other MP-compatible trailer mod.

 

but I think something is wrong with it. After I've activated it, ETS2 told me that a game version change has been detected. I thought "ok, it's a new mod, maybe that's why".

But even after I ported myself to a garage (Pécs) thousand of kilometers away from my headquarter (Stavanger) and did the F7+Enter method the freight market still said: "No".

So I drove to a near dealer to get a trailer... and... well... look for yourself

Neither a trailer stood there, available to pick up nor the green rotating symbole on the ground was visible.

So i deactivated the mod and all those problems were gone. I don't know why this happened but it did.

 

Regards

Bump for Update:

 

- Fixed an issue where the economy would reset with 0 cargoes caused by an oversight where some countries use a , for decimal points rather than a . - this is now handled.

This worked perfectly for me and made adding the painted trailers much easier rather than before. Definitely going to keep using this. 

 

Thank you very much.

@MetalDragon it is being worked on, along side Schwarzmuller DLC support. The thing with ATS is the trailers have different numbers of axles where as ETS2 they all have 3, and some of them have 2 types of wheels; i'm trying to figure out the most efficient way to do this.

You need to get your trailer in the singleplayer, of course. The multiplayer deactivates all other mods than itself. And if you don't want that your trailers are to late to unload them:

 

1. start the multiplayer

2. refresh your freight market

3. close the mp and start the singleplayer

4. activate the mod and get your painted trailer (couple it with your truck!)

5. close the sp and start the multiplayer again

6. have fun ^_^
