GUIDE ON USING MULTIPLE TRAILERS IN ANY CITY OR COUNTRY OF ETS 2:

 

So I was recently taught a trick in order to get double trailers in every area of the ETS 2 map. So, as you currently know the area limitation has been lifted but the default game won't let you change the area you want your trailer. This is why I have created this guide to help beginners and advanced players test their luck in other areas of the map not just Finland. 

 It's fairly simple but you need to decrypt your game.sii folder and in order to do this you need a file such as the one attached https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/642182917816057867/642208434334203904/SII_Decrypt.exe what will this do? This will simply decrypt your save game, ensure you go to the right area in order to do this successfully. So to do this, you need to do the following:

Step 1, - You need to use one of your trailers in single player mode of ETS 2 (Not in TruckersMP)

Step 2, - Then you need to go and save your game as something you'll remember I used 'DOUBLE 2' 

Step 3, when you have saved your game as a familiar name, you'll need to locate this profile save, don't worry about staying in your single player game for now, this is fine. 

Step 4, go to this folder: profiles 

In order to get here do the following steps: (PC - Documents - Euro Truck Simulator 2 - Profiles) - Once at this point, you'll notice a big number which is a file. This is where all of your ingame profiles are stored. In order to access this, go ahead and click on the folder so it should look like this when opened: https://prnt.sc/vnxow0 - Once opened, you'll see a folder in there called 'save' go ahead and click on this, it'll bring you to your actual profiles. 

Once at your profiles you'll see in some cases a lot of auto saves, maybe none or a few, this makes your life even easier if you don't have many if you do, no problem just find the save you made ingame. So for me, it was the one listed DOUBLE you can check this via the Date Modified function. 

Great! You're doing really well, now once you get to here; go ahead and drag the folder 'SII_Decrypt from the link sent above into the game folder. https://prnt.sc/vnxzvp What will this do? It'll simply enable you to actually understand the contents inside this file. So it should look like a SII notepad file or you'll be able to read the contents.

 

Now follow the next steps: 

Step 1, Go to 'Edit - Find and search "trailer_defs" - Once here, copy everything and go ahead and search it. 

Step 2, Once here, you're doing very well and on task - - Next! You'll need to change the following things in order to make the game think it's a Single trailer when in theory it's a double, B double or HCT. - Why is this? It's to ensure you can drive your trailer anywhere in TMP

 

Step 3, So you'll change the value here under 'chain_type:' to single as I've done (Keep in mind if it's already single, scroll down until you find one with 'B double', Double or HCT' - Great! Once you've done that you'll notice some text under 'country_validity between these lines: it'll have different countries names so go ahead and remove these. Now - the eagle eyed ones out there would of noticed my country validity says '0' - You'll need to change it's current value to 0 this enables you to use it in any countries. 

 

Step 4, Find "source_name:" and delete the text including the quotes as seen here:  and replace it with 'NULL' as seen here: - This will enable the game to work out it's a single trailer. Now, once you've done this all you need to do is the following.

 

Click File - Save and save the document. 

 

Step 5, Load into Single player game (unless it's still open on single player) and go ahead and click on 'LOAD' and load in your saved profile. Go to trailer manager and highlight your mouse over one of the trailers that shows as a HCT, B-Double or double - You'll see it says 'Single' 

 

Step 6 - Go ahead and SAVE the new profile and go into TMP, load up the profile and it'll let you transfer that trailer to any garage you own in the game - I hope this helps. React as you feel appropriate feel free to private message questions and I'll address them.

Awesome guide! For anyone who are new to save editing, don't forget to check out the basic save editing tutorials.

 

Also another note is that if you move a double trailer in a garage outside the designated countries for that double, it can be finicky to customize the trailer. I remember being able to do it in X game version, then not being able to do it in Y game version.

I’m feeling like you didn’t follow instructions. Other people have looked and have seen the guide and also have said it works, please ensure you’ve followed all the steps correctly this theory was tested.

Hey,

I followed all instructions correctly, but it says that my profile was last updated in the middle of November, even though I have made multiple saves. All I have of an "updated" profile is one of the .bak ones.

When using the SII decryptor on the old save, weirdly, this is what I get in the file..image.thumb.png.cfb101a9144b9f6b7f4270455200972b.png No thing about nameless etc, could you help?

Hey so this won’t affect your profile in terms of when it was updated, it only relates to if you have changed your save. Please rely ok your comments in relation to this, anymore issues please don’t hesitate to reply.

Hey, I’ve never tried but it’ll certainly be worth a try if it helps.

Thanks, I will retry doing this save edit now and see if anything works better now that I have reinstalled ETS2. Can I leave the game save format as 0 and not change it to 2 like some other tutorials say to do? Thanks.

Yeah it doesn’t matter as to the name of the game save, the only reason people advise different ones to is make it more convenient for you, you could name it 123 for any reason if you wished.
