Not sure what a "skren" is. Icons are images made in an image editor (I recommend Paint.Net, a free software that is bar far better than even Photoshop) and have nothing to do with Blender.

just normal rendering, there is nothing different between 2.79 or 2.8 in how it is done, set a camera, set the resolution for the camera (output properties > dimensions where also the export panel is, set it to 2x the res of the icon and the % to 50)
Image

set the background to transparency (render properties > film)
Image

and then choose wich part should be visible in the render and witch parts not
Image

select the camera and press ctrl+numpad 0 to get into camera view and make your adjustments to fit the image (object data properties > lens, and g +x/y/z for movement)
Image

if you have it press F12 and blender will render it
Image

if you have it shift+s and then save it as a tga with alpha
Image

this should give you an icon in 256x64 with transparent background to use as a shop icon ingame

Uses "Render image" in Blender. This way you can paint the scene in a blender. You just have to position the camera to shoot from a certain angle. And you still know how to create an in-game model icon. :)

Generally speaking I just use a greenscreen theme and use prnt scrn. That way if I am taking images of multiple similar parts with variations I know the angle of the image is the same. Not a perfect solution.

how i do it you can always make the icons in the exakt same angle if you change something on it, you can do it individually for every part, or you assembly the whole truck with every option and then you make icons like i did for the RJL Scania i rebuild

Image

if i change, for example the plastic bumpers color a bit, i can just import the new part and make an icon again, this also applyes if you add a variation of the truck and want to make icons of the ne accessories with the same position to make the mod look more pleasing, so i can just drop in the 5 series parts nd will have 1:1 icons matching just with a different part in it

Image

a faff to set it up, but when you have it you can easily update your icons if needed or make new ones if you added new variations to parts

I may look into it when I have more desire to play with Blender.

In my case I did it that way because I didn't know enough about Blender to do it properly early on and most of what I do know is self taught.

@xXCARL1992Xx ok i made icons how i can put it now in mod? if i put it like this game cant find mat files, in wich program i can make mat file for icons?

edit: another question, how you paint models wich is added by locator.

exemple you here have camera for mirors and locator for mirors, so when you make new mirors you just import miror pim in miror locator and take sccreen with same angle becose camera for mirors is always in same position but how you put mirors in color, i have option onli to soild it or wire it?
