Flags / banners automatically appearing/disappearing

#1 Post by Holzauge » 31 Mar 2018 11:26

I like the flags and banners. They complete a heavy haul and will - of course - complete the special transports. Unfortunately I don't do heavy hauls that often and trucks with with flags and banner look odd when doing standard hauls.

My suggestion (if technically possible): You buy a banner and the flags once and they automatically appear once you do a heavy transport (and for the upcoming special transports). If you do a standard transport, they don't show up. I think for the banner and flags to mount you really don't need a mechanic... ;) The driver could add them himself.

Any comments and other suggestions regarding this are very welcome! Thanks! :)

Good suggestion!
This items can be considered as truck inventory, so you can activate them when necessary. (similar window as light/cabin setup)
Also the company stickers on truck doors can be added this way.

I think these should just be included with the trailer when you pick it up, and automatically displayed.

And the company sticker I agree with - What's the purpose of a company logo if it's not used for anything? Custom made logos would be nice also, so I can show my own logo instead of using a canned one.

I once read a while ago before the Heavy Haul DLC released, a suggestion that it could be apart of the F4 menu.

My question is this, why isn't it? The whole "Oversized" banner and red flags are so badly done and annoying that I don't really do heavy loads at all often.

Yep, would love to see flags and banners show depending on cargo/trailer type.

i would like an inventory that would allow a player to add and remove the banners and flags at will without the need for a shop. not forced based on cargo type
I'm on a mission to ensure the city of Pittsburgh is accurately represented in ATS.

Don't know why this wasn't implemented in the first place.

@rocknrollDaVE: and get a hefty fine when you don't stick the right banners/flags on? Same with chemical signs? That could be fun!
