Multiple Trailers in Traffic - ATS - v7.3

#1 Post by Mr Larrington » 16 Dec 2018 17:30

I decided to create a new topic for this mod so the first post can be used to notify you fine folks of any updates instead of your having to hunt them down in the depths of the old one.

Please note: The ETS2 mod now has its own topic: https://forum.scssoft.com/viewtopic.php?f=177&t=265933

Where it came from:
Someone anonymous did one for earlier versions of both games but it didn't get updated after an SCS update. It was credited to Jazzycat but although it used his truck models it never appeared on his web site, so I assume his participation was without his knowledge. This one is based on what the original did, but only uses SCS models, has been kept more or less up to date and has had extra bits added to it, especially the ATS version.

What it does:
Adds double/triple trailers in traffic
Heavy Cargo DLC Addon adds the trailers and cargo from the Heavy Cargo DLC
Forestry DLC Addon adds the trailers and cargo from the Forest Machinery DLC

What's in the box:

ATS Multiple Trailers In Traffic Base:
  • Bottom dumpers: Pup double, Rocky Mountain double, pup triple
  • Dry bulk tanks: Pup double, Rocky Mountain double, pup triple
  • Curtainsiders: Pup double, Rocky Mountain double, pup triple
  • Dryvans: Rocky Mountain double, Turnpike double, pup triple
  • Flatbeds: Pup double[1], Rocky Mountain double, Turnpike double, pup triple (empty and loaded)
  • Insulated vans: Pup double, Rocky Mountain double, pup triple
  • Reefers: Rocky Mountain double, Turnpike double, pup triple
  • Grain hopper: Turnpike double
  • Lowboy w. jeep & bulldozer
  • Truck transports
  • Double versions of all SCS trucks not already included in the base game
  • Easter Eggs
1: Except hay, which SCS include. SCS also include double pup dryvans & reefers and a Rocky Mountain double grain hopper.

ATS Multiple Trailers In Traffic DLC Heavy Cargo Addon:
  • Heavy cargo addon: traffic versions of all the Heavy Cargo DLC trailers - REQUIRES THE HEAVY CARGO DLC AND THE BASE PACKAGE
  • Versions of all SCS trucks to pull 'em.
ATS Multiple Trailers In Traffic DLC Forestry Addon
  • Forestry addon: traffic versions of all the Forest Machinery DLC trailers - REQUIRES THE FOREST MACHINERY DLC AND THE BASE PACKAGE
  • Versions of all SCS trucks to pull 'em.
ATS Jazzycat Painted Pup Triples And Singles
  • Single and triple versions of the double trailers and associated trucks in Jazzycat's Painted Truck Taffic mod. REQUIRES JAZZYCAT'S PAINTED TRUCK TAFFIC MOD (BUT IS INDEPENDENT OF ANY THE ABOVE MODS).
ATS Multiple Trailers For Cargo:
  • Allows Rocky Mountain/Turnpike double and pup triple trailers for cargo in states and provinces on CanaDream, C2C and the various Mexico maps, and also corrects some of the patent absurdities in the SCS trailer definitions. Refrigerated curtains? Scrap cars inna chip van? STANDALONE MOD.
ATS Truck Templates:
  • Templates for skinning Jazzycat's Volvo VNL (from Jazzycat's Painted Truck traffic mod), Hawkbs' Kenworth W900 (from the Dalton Highway mod) and Insane J's (aka Mohegan13) Kenworth T800 (from the Carlile Transportation Systems mod in the Steam Workshop).

Trailer paint jobs are the standard-issue SCS ones. Real companies mods should replace the SCS skins with their own. The mod has fancy truck colours courtesy of the inestimable cip of this parish, who also did most of the hard work on the heavy cargo trailer adaptations and pointed me in the right direction over the traffic rules which make the whole thing work.

What's new?

Version 7.3 for ATS: ATS_Multiple_Trailers_in_Traffic_v7.3.7z - 27.1 MB
  • Much like v7.2 but reinstates the Jazzycat Painted Pup Triples And Singles mod, plus a few other tweaks.
If you are using cip's Traffic Density mod (or anyone else's come to that) then it MUST GO ABOVE ALL OF THESE MODS in the Mod Manager.

Known issues:
  • Some trailers might arrive before their wheels do. To fix this, edit your config.cfg file and change the line:

    Code: Select all

    uset g_lod_factor_traffic "0"
    
    to

    Code: Select all

    uset g_lod_factor_traffic "5"
    
    The game sometimes sets the graphics mode back to "abacus" after a crash, so keep a backup copy of your config.cfg file handy.
  • The trailers still sink into the road surface, fall apart, materialise in the middle of your traffic lane or tie themselves in knots from time to time. These phenomena are down to SCS. I thought they'd fixed this until I saw a flatbed double trying to extricate itsef from I-15 yesterday, like a Shasta ground sloth in the La Brea tar pits. Bah.
  • The trucks have - at least for now - reverted to using the default SCS sounds. Use CIP's ATS Real AI Traffic Engine Sounds mod for nicer noises.
See the description text files in each mod for the countries/regions in which the trailers appear, and how to make the multis appear everywhere if that's what you want.

This is a "bare-bones" mod and you are actively encouraged to take it apart to see how it works and create your own trucks and trailers.

I can't speak for anyone else, of course, but I downloaded this file because when I read the readme.txt file in the newer one, which I always do before I add a mod to the game, it said "updated for v1.33", and I have 1.32. But after I downloaded this file I saw it says the same thing. So do you have a 1.32 version? Or will these work in 1.32 and I am clueless as usual about updates I don't have? Image
You can call me Ax

There was a 1.32 version at one point. Let me consult the backups...

Edit: v2.0 for game v1.32 re-uploaded - see first post.

SCS have updated ETS2 to v1.33.2.19 while I was eating my dinner and thus broken the mod. ATS also got updated, but the mod is unaffected.

See first post for updated version.

Happy New Year Mr Larrington! nice initiative with new topic for multiple trailers in traffic. what you did not mention and you should is that inevitably there are traffic files in your mod, these were broken on 17 December in ETS2 not the multiple trailers.
For info, you mod as it is now, is not compatible with traffic density mods, it must be placed above to see doubles in traffic, but the traffic mod may be affected (depending what's the complexity level of the density mod used).
For info I added the rules for multiple trailers in traffic in my traffic density mod and I mentioned this in my thread for ATS and ETS2.
now for traffic there are overrides rules that can make your doubles compatible with any traffic mods, please remind me to do this one day! currently I am busy with Chris45 doubles, for some reasons I have crashes in ATS with no errors but I suspect the Chris45 pack... need more investigation, I may be wrong (I hope) :lol:

Work great in ATS 1.34 too. Anyway, can you make default turnpike double by scs (not 53' wabash trailer) to the traffic? it consists two 45ft trailers (first one with hook with def name dry_45_hook and the second one being dry_45_r). Thanks you so much

Announcing v3.2, as sort-of requested by Walker Bill - see first post for links etc. Only real change is the inclusion of 45' turnpike doubles alongside the existing 53' ones. See also the first post if you want just one or the other type.

Sorry for the delay but I've actually been doing some driving!
