#1 Post by Flemming V » 19 Jan 2014 12:25

UPDATE: v85.2 - ONLY FOR Game version 1.28.x and UP - (27-August-17)

Changelog:
Removed bad placed collision for all Volvo Chassis, it was only intended for 10x4 chassis.
Added number plate on 2 axle tandem trailer.
Added another more nice texture to drawbar on all tandem trailers.
Added 10x4 Chassis. (yes it is unrealistic, but I had a massive request on it).
Added 10x4 Coolliner Cargo Box.
Adjusted Diffuse on all trailer, both Tandem and Dolly trailers.
Adjusted Diffuse on all Truck Cargo Boxes.
Adjusted cargo weight from Dollies to Trailer alone.
Adjusted weight of empty dolly trailers to more realistic weight. (too light before).
All Tandem trailers are updated with 50Keda's Texture upgrade.
All Truck Cargo Boxes are updated with 50Keda's Texture upgrade.
All Tandem trailer floor texture is changed, improved.
All LOD Trailers, Tandem and Dollies has been updated as well with everything.
Corrected double text in all my devil.dds texture files.
Raised all tandem trailers 10cm to match Truck Cargo Box height.
Raised all dolly and tandem trailers rear lights and bumber.
Removed Krone variant in all trailers. Both dolly and tandem trailers in pack.
Updates by 50Keda:
- newly made fakeshadow planes and re-baked textures for both dollys and all three coolliners
- reduced polycount on dollys for around 10k + reduced polycount on coolliners for around 6k
- reduced used materials (10-15 less draw calls) + 3 textures less for each trailer (not using profiliner, universal and rama2 anymore),
- fixed weird normals (fridge was especially bad),
- new casing for lights (black part around them, just to get rid of 2k texture which was broken anyway),
- fixed UVs + vertex color on chassis + removed some badly mapped faces
- added "proper" alpha to cool_liner.dds so finally not whole trailer is shining like crazy
- tweaked fridge unit on in cool_liner.dds to have less "baked lighting" in it and to better match to the rest of the box
- darken texture on dolly to properly match rest of the trailer

Download it without commercials, you do not even need to wait for any countdown. No DL speed limit, no password before DL, no mod protection and of course 100% Free. :)

Mod Compatible:
This mod uses ALL the original game trucks and add tandem to them. It does not replace anything in game, only adds to the game. Truck updates from SCS is automatic used with mod.
This mod work together with almost all mods out there. But some other truck mods could cause problems.
Compatible with ETS2 v1.28.x and all versions after that. NEEDS minimum v1.28.x. (1.27.x version can also be downloaded from my site)

About:
To drive these trucks you need to go to your favorite truck dealer and upgrade a truck. (After level 8)
ALL trailers in game will be replaced by tandem trailers, as you can only haul that with a tandem truck.
Select Chassis 4x2, 6x2, 6x4 or 8x4 chassis and select the dot just behind cabin to add the cargo box or chassis accessories.
You can paint and upgrade all truck with same accessories from game, just like all other stock trucks in game.
These trailers will let you haul about 208 different cargo types. (Including latest cargo system) and also include WOTR cargo.

Make your own name (skin):
Edit all the devil.dds files in your favorit DDS editor to have your own skin.
The trailer skin file devil.dds is located in: vehicle\trailer_eu\tandem\trailer type\textures\ and the
Dolly skin file devil.dds is located in: vehicle\trailer_eu\wabash\ and the
truck cargo box skin file devil.dds is located in: vehicle\truck\upgrade\cargo\tandem\cargo box type\textures\
Just overwrite all these devil.dds files you find, with your own skin dds colors and your are good to go. ;)

4 SKIN pack can be downloaded from this url:
Download them all from URL here: http://ets.vinge.dk

18+ Trailer packs can be downloaded from this url:
Download them all from URL here: http://ets.vinge.dk

It is not need to have any trailer pack together with main pack. Only DL trailer pack if you want other trailers than Coolliner trailers with and without dollys.
Never have more than one trailer pack activated together. Always have main pack activated ALSO, if or when using a trailer pack from here.

Remember to look for all my other mod as well in this forum or Steam Workshop.

Installation:

1. Download from the link above.
2. Move the downloaded file into your "My Documents\Euro Truck Simulator 2\mod" folder.
3. Start the game and enter Mod Manager in your profile. Add mod to right side as active.
4. Visit your favorite truck dealer and config/upgrade the truck. (Or look at it, right away in TRUCK BROWSER)
5. Start adding Chassis and Cargo box to your truck.
6. Buy TRUCK, Drive and enjoy

To uninstall, disable the mod in the profile mod manager. (Perhaps even sell truck before deactivating to make sure you avoid errors)
Game will not crash, you will just have a stock truck if you only disable mod. No harm done.

Copyright:
Please credit me if you are using anything in my mod, in your own mod.

Why this mod?:
Try it, Drive it and you will know.. :-)

Did you hear Peterbilt, Kenworth, and Freightliner are going to make a truck together?
They are going to call it a "Peter Worth Shakin"

To make your own skin to this mod you need a DDS editor (Edit .dds files) and WinRar (unpack/pack mod), other programs will also do it.

Unpack my mod to a temp directory

Load up your dds editor and make that load this dds file here: devil.dds from here:

vehicle\trailer_eu\tandem\coolliner\textures\
vehicle\truck\upgrade\cargo\tandem\textures\
vehicle\truck\**truckname**\textures\


Now you can change/edit your color skin for both coolerboxes, on the truck and on the trailer.

Now save this DDS file after editing it, Use DXT5 and Interpolated Alpha, save it 3 times.
Save it these places here:

vehicle\trailer_eu\tandem\coolliner\textures\
vehicle\truck\upgrade\cargo\tandem\textures\
vehicle\truck\**truckname**\textures\


NOW, pack the mod again into a SCS file. Use compression Store and save it as zip, then rename .zip to .scs, last step it not that important. (rename from zip to scs).

That should do it.. ;)

Very nice mod! ;)
I'm having some troubles with coolerbox skin. It's not showing as it should be. After editing it i save it using dxtbmp, put it in the scs file, and ingame it shows like this:

Here is the devil.dds file with the skin as it should be:

Not sure if it is something wrong the way i do it :oops: or it is a problem with the coolerbox mapping.

Beside that the only problem i've found is the incompability with ohaha's fh16 mod. when having both enabled the fh engine panel is missing. :cry:
