RE-UPLOAD NOT !!! PERMITTED!!!

To all of you out there not being stinkin' thieves - no hard feelings, just sayin' ;) Sadly, those few who are won't care anyway.

Mod will be personalized so I can track the bad eggs.

Well done man!!!
I have been expecting the 76-in mid roof since the launch of ATS... :D

Are you also thinking creating the 52-in mid roof sleeper with roof fairing??
Or even the 40-in space saver sleeper??

Hi,

I'm a little disappointed with the short cabs - in the brochures, the 52in appears to have a shorter chassis for more aerodynamic coupling. Therefore I'm not sure if I will. Guess chassis length is up to buyer's wishes, but still... the 76in was far further up on my list. And to be honest, the 40in... well, if I want minitiature cabs, I can stick with ETS ;)
I may show more pics of the mid-roof 76" within the next days.

We'll see - there's plenty of time to make one's mind up what to to. First release will be all about mountpoints and the mid-76. Maybe in a later version.

First, some playtest pics.. Remember, it's still unfinished, and in these pictures features stuff that's available with other mods.

Still, it shows what's currently on the platter. I'm still looking for a cab-mounted condenser and a chassis-mounted APU.

Early start in Vegas...

I like it a lot, really is an excellent work! ;)

I am going to agree with you about the 76-in mid roof, looks better than the shorter sleepers.
But the short sleepers are nice too, I personally don't like the day cabs.

I am looking forward to download your mod when is ready. :D
Take your time, and thanks a lot for your work! :)

Arrrrllright...

still some stuff to build and arrange, but here's another small set of additional pics to ease the waiting. Just for the record, I got permission from 349Hugo to use his parts, this is not shanghai'ed from Kentuckyboy. And I have retained the 52", maybe the version with the aero-spoiler will come in a future update.

This colleague in a 52" mid-roof was honking impatiently while I maneuvered 24" more cabin and a long trailer.

Finally the first and only pic I had to retouch by enhancing brightness... While the hi-roof 76" will retain his stock two-bed config (upper bed folded up), my mid-76 will be a single-driver machine, bringing over the storage racks on the rear wall known from the 52". And yes, all sleepers are planned to have (multiple color) interior lights.
