Possible to not have clearance lights [24610]

#1 Post by Smarty » 15 Mar 2016 20:20

For all three base game trucks, it is possible to have a truck configuration that does not have rooftop clearance lights. Moreover, there are dealer configurations which lack them by default.

Kenworth T680
.tdealer.kenworth_4.t680 is configured without clearance lights.
All instances of cab variant A (so-called duty cabin) can be configured with no clearance lights if neither a Cabin Light nor a Roof Deflector accessory is assigned (or if the player removes them as neither is defined as required[]).

Suggested solution: Mark the cabin light accessory group as required[], introduce a 'blank' cabin light accessory with price: 0 (so it doesn't show up in the store), and have the cab deflector conflict with the 5 and 7 cabin light accessories while setting the 'blank' one as its default.

Kenworth W900L
.tdealer.kenworth_4.w900 is configured without clearance lights.
All instances of cab variants A, B, and C can be configured with no clearance lights if no Cabin Light accessory is assigned (or if the player removes them, as they are not defined as required[]).

Suggested solution: Mark the cabin light accessory group as required.

Peterbilt 579
.tdealer.peterbilt_4.579 is configured without clearance lights.
All instances of cab variants A, B, and C can be configured with no clearance lights if no Sun Visor accessory is assigned (or if the player removes them, as they are not defined as required[]).

Suggested solution: Mark the sun visor accessory group as required, or introduce a cabin light group and use the method suggested for the T680.

Clearance markers are required lighting equipment under FMVSS/CMVSS 108 and so to someone accustomed with North American vehicles, their absence is as visually jarring as, say, if the trucks were missing headlights or brake lights.
