TruckersMP - Tab Panel and Background Replacement

Recommended Posts


As you know, with the update, there are changes in the file system, most importantly the changes you made after the background and texture changes will be preserved and the files will not be deleted. I will show the tab panel colors and how the background of the lobby screen is changed.


Change The Tab Panel Color


  • First we enter the folder where TruckersMP is installed "C:\ ProgramData\TruckersMP\data" Here we create folders "ets2_mod> ui" respectively.
  • Then enter "C:\ProgramData\TruckersMP\data\ets2\ui" and copy the image named "ui_skin".Then we will paste it in "C:\ProgramData\TruckersMP\data\ets 2 mode\ui"


  • Now, right click on the photo named "ui_skin" and open it with "open with> Paint.NET". Paint.NET download.



  • In the next step, apply the color you want to the brown areas, save it after finishing your work, and exit. Your tab panel is colored.






Background Change


  • First, enter "C:\ProgramData\TruckersMP\data\ets2\ui", copy the 3 images mentioned in the photo to the location "C:\ProgramData\TruckersMP\data\ets2_mod\ui".



  • Now, edit each photo you have copied and change it with the photos you want. "Right click on the photo to edit"




  • In the window that opens, we select (ctrl + a) and delete (delete) the entire photo.Then, follow the previous step to the photo you selected.Apply ctrl + a and ctrl + c commands on the opened photo.Then, we copy and paste 3 photos, one by one, and save them..


Note:The image you are copying should be in 1920x1080 resolution and in png format.


Good Games!

Thanks for the tutorial, I used Photoshop instead of Paint.NET because it doesn't matter what program it is + the Photoshop has a ton of coloring options.


Anyways, it finally solved my dilemma on how to edit the UI
