U could take a look inside a trailermod that has the latest companies and go from there

adding some new def-files should do it 8-)

@m1keY thanks for your suggestion would I only have to edit the def files or would I have edit cargo too?

there are new companies so u might wanna do that... U could look in the company folder (extracted game) and see the new names
add those new into the mod ... 8-) copy content in one of the existing companyfolders (in / out ) to the new folders - one way of doing it ;)

I'm not sure, maybe completely remove the companyfolder and see if it works better ( if no folder it might spawn it everywhere, my guess )

And to make it appear more often - U need to see how much cargo it has been given, maybe it's notthat much.

U could use MODS STUDIO /ETS2Studio to give it more ..... link :arrow: Image

short description .....

choose any trailer in the list....

Image

just pic a image...

Image

the important step...same name as the trailer U want these extra cargoes for

Image

then...pick every one..or as many U like ....

Image

final step ...drag all the new cargoes to the trailermod U have made the cargoes for...

Image

did this for a trailer I made standalone for private use ( original author Truckskill )
new profile and the changes made to this mod ( more cargoes)


appears in the freight market... not much discovered so it's limited..anyhow

Image

andthe trailermod folderstructure with this applied...

Image


If anyone else knows this better than me, hope they can share their information ( if it's made in an easier way I would like to know it too ) :P

@m1keY Thanks a lot for the help I managed to sort it I just added more cargo types to the def file and all the new companies and seemed to show up a lot more now.
Thanks for your help
