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.

I've just checked my map, but it's aligned perfectly. Can you post a screenshot of your map? Do you have other mods installed as well?

I got around to messing with it, and moved it to the very top of the load order. Took me a min but I just realized that I had a map marker mod installed and I believe that might of been the culprit!

Why is this C2C load order different from "Proper Load Order for Maps"? Is general load order based on preference? I am seeing all kinds of different orders out there. some with maps at lowest priority or mid. Some orders starting with sounds or graphics.

Personally I have my order as follows and have never really had issues as long as mods are up to date;

- Weather/Graphics
- Physics
- Prefabs/Textures like real companies
- Traffic Density Ratio/Improved Trains
- All sound mods with sound fixes pack at the bottom.
- Maps, using "Proper Load Order for Maps"
- AI traffic packs like Jazzycat.
- Truck/Trailer/Addons

The General Load Order is based on Where to add additional mods on your map combo profile and in what order? | ETS2 and ATS of Wombat Trucker. But there are more possibilities for the load order of additional mods; that's why you'll see different load orders all over the place.

A second reason to put map mods at the bottom and additional mods on top of the map mods, is this: when you start adding mods, map mods have the biggest chance to break the game. If the load order of map mods is incorrect, there might be broken roads, floating terrain, invisible objects, terrain gaps, or even worse: the profile won't load at all / the game crashes (CTD). That's why I always start adding map mods. If those map mods are correctly loaded, then I start to load additional mods.

But it really depends on what the mod contains in order to load it above or below another mod. For instance: if you have a truck with very specific truck physics and you want to load another physics mod without loosing the specific truck physics, you'll probably want the physics mod loaded below the truck mod.

So in the end the general load order is... just a general guideline. Nothing more and nothing less.

Hi Vinnie, having a small issue around Stockton with the Western Star Dealer and cargo point next to it:

This is my load order currently.

CanaDream v2.39.2
Coast to Coast v2.11.11
Mega Resources 2.1.20
Grand Canyon Rebuild (v1.3)
Elko and Redding retouched SN (v2.1)
Reforma Sierra Nevada 2.2.30

Before adding Sierra Nevada it is fine, AFTER adding Sierra Nevada I get these errors:

Outside Western Star Dealer Stockton: https://i.imgur.com/gxPlSIG.jpg (Notice the bush on the left, fence on the right)

Around the back of the cargo point (this causes spawned cargo to get stuck/near impossible get out): https://i.imgur.com/cE99VF8.jpg

I have since removed all my maps and gone back and re-enabled them up to the point of adding Sierra Nevada, so I was sure what was causing the issue.

I usually have my load order as:

Sound
Weather
Physics
Trucks
Maps
Trailers
Misc

Should I try putting Trucks below ? I've used the above order for years, even on ETS2.

No, it's not a truck problem. It really is a map problem. I have this problem too, and there are more strange things happening in that area, like a parked car at the opposite side of the street at the gas station, some floating plains and a incorrect placed fence.

I don't think this problem has to do with the load order of map mods, as the only map mod in that area is Reforma Sierra Nevada. So I think it's just a bug with SN. Have you tested it by using a profile with only SN (and Mega Resources ofcourse)? If not, I will test it in the morning.

I'll test that now, and edit this after. I didn't plan to bog down your thread with my problems but wasn't sure what else to post it.

Edit: I can confirm the issue still stands, tested on a new profile with JUST those 2 map mods.

I tried to follow those instructions regarding my own ATS LO but I'm still experiencing crashes every 2 minutes. Here's the current order I have them in. I really hate to have someone order these in the proper order for me on here (so I can re-order them properly in-game myself), but I'm at my wits-end. I tried everything. Anyone who can help me do this, I'd greatly appreciate it. Here's the order below:
1. Infinite Money & XP From Super Cheat
2. Stonks [Money & Level]
3. GTM Emergency Vehicle Flares
4. AI Traffic Pack by Jazzycat v9.5
5. Realistic Truck Physics Mod v3.0 (by Frkn64)
6. Long Trains Add-On for Improved Trains (up to 150 cars)
7. Improved Trains for ATS
8. Real AI Traffic FMOD Sounds ATS
9. SiSL's Trailer Pack USA
10. SiSL's Trailer Pack Addon: SCS Replacement
11. Swift MasterPack
12. (HD) Target Trailer
13. Thanksgiving Cargo Pack v1.2
14. Christmas Cargo Pack v1.2
15. Actual Day/Night Times
16. Realistic Graphics Mod v5.2 (by Frkn64)
17. Black Sky Fix Add-On for Realistic Graphics Mod
18. Realistic Rain v3.8
19. Realistic Mirror FOV
20. Realistic Vehicle Lights Mod v6.1 (by Frkn64)
21. Realistic Headlighting
22. ATS Real Logos Project
23. Real Companies & Trailers Pack v2.1
24. Real Company Mod and Trailers
25. Real Advertisements
26. Owned Trailer Company Skins for ATS 1.36 and Higher
27. Skin Pack for Improved Trains
28. Real Tires Mod
29. Real Trailer Tyres Mod
30. Female Drivers
31. US Company Logos
32. Niwo's Company Logos
33. Real US Google Nav for ATS v1.37.x
34. Google Maps Navigation
35. Volvo VNL 2018
36. International LT
37. International LT 2019 DLC/SiSL Addon
38. Swift Transportation for International LT
39. Swift Skin Pack
40. Walmart Paintjob
41. Swift Cascadia

Maybe I'm not seeing anything that could cause conflicts with another mod, I don't know. I feel like the GTM & Realistic Vehicle Lights Mod could conflict and mods #23, 24 & 26 on my list might be conflicting with one another, but I'm not quite sure. I'm new to modding on ATS, so again, ANY help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks :D
