Real Company Box Trailers V2.4 [Updated March 25, 2017]

#1 Post by andrei383 » 06 Jan 2017 20:14

ATTENTION ALL USERS: The mod hosting website atsmod.net is no longer an official upload site for this or any of my mods. This mod has been reuploaded there by a user called Mods80. As such, the ONLY official links will come from atsmod.lt and the SCS forum. Downloading elsewhere is at your own risk. As usual I will not offer support or honor requests from unauthorized sites.

Features:
- Replaces the default box trailer skins (28'/53' Dry Van and 40'/53' Reefers)
- 69 realistic, extensively researched trucking company liveries (+4 plain/fictional)
- Includes small details such as warning decals, trailer numbers, and manufacturer decals
- Upscaled textures (to 2048x2048) with aspect ratio corrections for higher detail and no texture stretching
- Adds additional cargo and companies to the appropriate trailers and all the trailers to AI traffic.
- Compatible with ATS 1.6 including Advanced Trailer Coupling

Issues:
1. Due to the new paint job system introduced in ATS 1.4, the rear/chassis of the 26/53 ft. Dry Van and 40/53 ft. Reefer 3000R trailers use the same texture.
2. Due to the mapping of the 53 ft. Reefer 3000R trailer, the decal placements may not be exactly the same as the real trailer.
3. Several plain skins are included and may later be replaced with other companies.

Installation:
1. Extract the downloaded zip file.
2. Delete any previous version of this mod.
3. Copy the "Real_Company_Box_Trailers_andrei383.scs" file into your American Truck Simulator mod folder.
4. Activate the mod in the ATS mod manager.
5. Increase the priority of the mod so that it has higher priority than other trailer mods.

Great mod. Really makes ATS more realistic. Although, im not sure if it's just happening to me, but Walmart trailers seem to flood the freight market. For example, I can have 15 walmart trailers yet have no stevens transport, JB hunt etc. If you could adjust that somehow and make other skins show up more it would make the mod even better!

Also some other skins you could add could be: Schneider, Gordon Trucking Inc, Con-Way, ABF, Old Dominion Freight, May Trucking, TransAm, Werner Enterprises. Adding these would make the mod better too :)

Thanks for your work!

@ZachMan: I believe the issue you're seeing is because all the loads coming from Wallbert are on Walmart trailers, and there seems to be a lot of loads coming from Wallbert in game. I could replace some of the Wallbert trailers with other companies and that should ease the number of Walmart trailers a bit.

I would appreciate some help from the forum: Are there any other trucking companies which deliver to Walmart in real life? That way I could use those trailers instead of Walmart to add some variety.

As for your suggestions for new companies, once I figure out how to add additional trailers, I'll add more companies to the mod. Keep in mind though that there were several companies I had to skip since I couldn't find large-enough logos to use on the textures.

Well, it depends what kinda walmart you're talking about. At Walmart stores, I think it's just Walmart/Sams club that delivers. But I believe pretty much any company hauls to Walmart distribution centers. I live in Cheyenne where one of the largest one is at, and there are multiple truck companies that deliver there. I've even seen containers on the dock before. Honestly I think you could add any of the reefers in this pack and add it to Walmart and it would still be realistic.

I can't afford to use anything that will lower FPS on my machine or I'd certainly use this mod. It looks fantastic!

@ZachMan: thanks for the info, I think I'll use a bit of artistic license and switch some of the Walmart skins for other companies. I'll keep you posted on that progress.

@BK Vissers: I completely understand your worries so I made a "Light" version of the mod which uses 1024x1024 textures (the same as default ATS) to reduce your FPS hit.

You can download it here: (Link removed as further testing has proven "full sized" mod has little to no FPS hit)
