To answer Kevin's question - I forgot that the T880's {model} hood has its fenders attached while the T680's has them in the sideskirts. Anyway... shrugged it off and made some from the T880 models.

Limitations- no "grey plastic" option so far. Not sure if I'll add some, I think it's hardly worth the effort. Hidden benefit - slots for flares for those who love Christmas Tree trucks like I do.
Btw, you can also use a more "stock" setup with nothing behind the tanks (fenders+steps+aircon optional)

Last shot for now- not lowered at all, and won't be for the time being. Mid Chassis for 54" sleeper and day cab.

Still alive, still adding stuff... however, I start to doubt I'll have it finished this month.

Spot any difference?

You can't see it on this pic, but she has a rear window in the sleeper. Next step: Custom interior.


This one just had its first roll-out... still work in progress, and I'll have to adapt a load of def files yet again. Wanted you show you what takes me so long nonetheless.

Keep up the good work. I'm not that Fan of the T880 but if the T680 come with all that good stuff... wow. Good reworks on default trucks are rare and the Pete from you is a good example for!

Well,

today was "interior day." Not really fun, but had to be done.

Small addition to the 52"ers... I mean, they have the Sat_An mountpoint, but no screen? Inspired by some truck photo, I believe it was one for sale...

Image

The 40"er won't have neither APU nor Sat Antenna, so it doesn't need a screen. Just imagine you have a tablet with LTE under the bed. I mean, come on, this is more of a day cab with personal storage than a real sleeper... or the boss really, really hates but cannot fire you. Better than sleeping in the seat though. Kind of. At least you can stretch out.
Like SCS, I didn't bother to spend any time on the area behind the driver seat... means it will look unfinshed if you have walkaround cam or something similar installed. On the other hand, right sight is halfway close to how it could like. Omitted the small windows for some speakers and a visible rack. And yeah, you can't see it in this pic, but there's an air intake in the side wall, hiding behind the seat back.

Still not everything sorted out, but getting closer.

Tom

Hey! Stop Teasing us! :lol:

Just counting the days until this truck gets released now, looks spectacular really and glad you have the time to do the interior to specifications unlike so many other modders who just slap in the generic interior and call it a day.

Thank you. Luckily for all of those waiting, there are "just" a few more tasks on my list.

The one I'm pulling out my hair on, a little more work on the 40-in external model.

The easy one, mate the 40-inch sleeper on the 680's hood. And rework the def files once more for it.

The medium one, fix a handful of accessories.

With a little luck, I get the easy stuff done tomorriw. But I'm unsure if I have to re-do the outer cabin again.

Tom
