Forum rules
SCS as a company do not wish to have paid mods on this forum. While we understand that not all paid mods use the Intellectual Property of other companies/people, it is very hard to moderate what is and isn't acceptable when money is involved. There are also concerns that it could look unfavorable to potential work partners going forward if SCS allow mods that may potentially use unlicensed branding.

[REL] [1.39+] AI Truck Expansion

#1 Post by bwae » 10 Jan 2021 08:11

The purpose of this mod is simple. Add more variety to the stock SCS truck traffic with hopefully minimal FPS impact.
This is a mod I've been wanting to do for a long while, and finally managed to learn how to mod ATS :D
Compatible with 1.39+


Image

Mod currently features:
  • 7 Freightliner Cascadia variants
  • 2 Kenworth T680 variants
  • 4 Peterbilt 579 variants
  • 4 Volvo VNL variants
  • 1 Mack Anthem variant

Code: Select all

Changelog:
1.0 - 1/10/2021
 - Initial release

1.2 - 1/14/2021
- Added Volvo VNL Chrome bumper (Sleeper and Lowsleeper)
- Added Volvo VNL 2016 Facelift
- Added Mack Anthem Chrome bumper daycab
- Added Peterbilt 579 Sleeper full plastic and plastic bumper
- Changed default Pete 389's wheels from steelies to chrome + updated LODs
- Adjusted daycab W900 and 389's spawnrate


In addition, I've also expanded the color list for the trucks listed, using the same color values as the user trucks.
I also have tweaked the spawn rates for the W900, 389 and Lonestar daycabs, making them more rare but not entirely gone, I may tweak the values in the future if people would prefer to have them more common.

Thanks for sharing. Is this mod compatible with TrafficManiac's mods?
Sorry for my English. Sometimes it can be difficult to understand.

Friend thank you very much, it looks AWESOME do you think that in the future you can add the mid-roof variants for International Lonestar, Mack Anthem and Freightliner Cascadia?

Additionally I have another question, is it possible to change the white rims for chrome ones on the Peterbilt 579 and 389 in traffic? thank you very much for reading this comment :D

I'm not sure what their mods add but the only possible mod conflict I can think of is any other mod that modifies the default SCS def files for the trucks, the extra trucks I've added should not be effected.

Bobtails are in the base game, they're pretty rare tho from what I've seen, most commonly seen parked but I've seen them driving around on occasion

"Modern" VNL, the ones in traffic are the pre-2016 facelift, also hood mirrors!

In addition, changed the stock 389 to use chrome wheels, look a lot better imho
