Is it possible to have several box skins and trailer skins at the same time? as in i can choose between more than just 1 at the paintshop and there's more than just 1 skin on all the jobtrailers?

dolly's are not supported by the game
it would be just a rigid... thing, hanging at the back of the truck...

ETS2 does not support an extra articulation point.
And, even if it would support it, it should be in the trailer model, not the truck. Otherwise you would have to perform two attachment operations, one for the dolly, one for the trailer...


And, anyway, to everyone asking about dollies or doubles or smoke out the exhaust or owning a trailer, the things are simple:
  • ETS2 is out of the design phase - no major code rewriting is going to take place to accommodate such game changers.
  • If SCS Software was going to do all this, they might as well release a new game, because it means a lot of work and a huge rework of the whole principle behind the current economy system.
  • And that's not going to happen, because all those people working on it must be paid.
  • Free patches have their own purpose, but there must be some revenue source, to justify the efforts.
  • Some of the improvements seen in the latest patches, like normal maps, various add-on additions and the upcoming AI and physics overhaul are also meant to help with the development of future titles, like ATS, so they are justified.
  • We should all be glad that SCS Software gave them to us, ETS2 players, in form of patches, too.
  • They could've kept them for the new game, exclusively, to draw more attention and to entice people to buy it.
  • But they made us a huge favor by letting us have a taste of it, for free.
  • So, bottom line, if your idea for a feature has the potential to be a major rework of the game (like the aforementioned) don't be surprised they are not implemented in ETS2, but think that they have a chance of appearing in a future title.

it turns out the truck has a hard time with toll booths in general
I have seen a similar problem reported on the TSM bugtracker, rejected of course since caused by a mod ;)

I made a video of this bug

This problem happens without the trailer too. But if you drive very slow (eg 1st gear) nothing happens.

I think you have another mod that destoy this, because you should be able to drive with ALL interiors with my mod.
