Make it compatible with mods

#1 Post by Blovesx » 26 Feb 2017 13:16

Hello,

I'd like the team responsible for WoT to remove the restrictions blocking me from taking on jobs with long trailers/long trucks. I'm using RJL Scania 8x2, Tandem and I want to be able to take the jobs from WoT also... those 4x2 Scania's are not challenging.

I'm using also Promods map addition - well that's probably not possible to make some patch for people using map mods to enjoy them with WoT contracts?

Not sure what you mean by not working with mods but here is what I think you mean. WoT limits job selection to the vanilla job and the jobs added by Trailer mods are never offered. There is a way around this:

In the mod there is likely a folder called <Mod Name>/def/cargo/<Job Name>. For example I have a folder called digger500 and it holds a file called: lowboy_y.cargo_cat422.sii

This file contains:
SiiNunit
{
trailer_def : .lowboy_y.cargo_cat422
{
trailer: trailer.lowboy_y.cargo_cat422
mass: 7484.3
cog_height_offset: 0.37
}
}

The trailer can be changed to the mod trailer, this is what mine looks like:
SiiNunit
{
trailer_def : .lodeking_L1
{
trailer: trailer.lodeking_L1
mass: 11580
cog_height_offset: 0.86
}
}

So now when I get offered the job digger500 it uses the lodekings mod trailer.

What I mean is:
1. I'm using RJL Scania mod and I'm driving using Scania 8x2 and tandem version by Capital. Because of the length of those trucks I can't pick any WoT contract because I get the notification my truck is too long. I don't really care if I can't drive with all these modded trailers I got from many authors.
2. I'm using Promods as map expander mod so I was wondering if it's possible to make WoT compatible with this addition so I can drive to other places not only to SCS ones (vanilla). Driving from france to germany/poland and back again is a bit annoying. I'm picking up jobs with distance over 1000 km.
