Harven,

Genius! Everything falls into place. I'm absolutely sure this mod will need this fix.

Harven, thank you very much for your info, I will make sure that this is updated for next update.
It is very kind of you to offer doing this, but it's not a problem, it will take me 10 min myself.
You already did the most work, by making this report and show me what to make.
Finding these bugs is what take most time, so again, Thank you very much. Very kind of you. ;)

btw. Why I have several collision boxes, is because there need to be some to stop the trailer,
in case you have switched auto coupling off in game. (Then coupling collision boxes will not stop anything)

You're wolcome, I'm glad I could help :)

You're right that it will take you about 10 minutes to fix it but I'm offering you something more. I wanted to replace all those 5th wheel resembling collision boxes in all truck with the one I proposed. I think it will fit better to the hook type you have there and also it will make attaching a trailer easier and more intuitive. I also wanted to fix the hook point location in all trucks because it seems it's off to the left in all trucks. Another thing is the adv. coupling cylinder that needs to be replaced with a sphere like you can see on last screenshots. While looking through different trucks I also found that there are some odd shaped collision boxes (convex shapes) in truck's chassis (I think I saw that in daf xf 106) and sometimes chassis collision boxes overlap with adv. coupling ones. This may also cause some issues while coupling. I would like to help you with all this and I will not touch anything else, just those collisions and hook points. This is not something that needs to be done, but I think it will make the mod better. I know it's hard to trust a stranger but if you don't like my work you can just throw it into the garbage :) I don't want anything in return, I don't want to be a coauthor or anything like this. There are no cons to my offering :) And I assure you I know what I'm doing, I'm an engineer ;)

Yes, I understand why there are collision boxes it's just that one adv. coupling cylinder collider that's inside another collision box. It will never be used no matter if the adv. coupling is on or off.

Cheers,
- Harven

Isn't that what the guy on the titanic said when he was asked about icebergs :lol:

Joking aside I think it sounds like an interesting experiment .

Hi Harven, again thank you very much for offering me help, very kind of you.

Are you sure that you are looking at my latest version, because I moved them all to the right at the same time I converted it last time.
No matter what I will look into it, so you and anybody else can enjoy it as soon as possible.

It is very kind of you to offer me help, but it will be tricky, because I always work on my truck, finding improvements and updateting it from day to day,
and there is even from time to time, beta stuff in it, which will be ready for next release of the game, so having a copy out the house, would make it difficult for me.
I would not be able to update my truck while it is out the house, and I would not be able to have beta stuff in it, as I actually have at the moment. ;)
I am sure you understand. But I will remove the beta stuff, and update the trucks this weekend with all you input. Thanks again.

Hey,
yes, I was looking at the latest version (76). It's only a bit off but still.

I understand this cooperation would require some effort on your side but as the saying goes: where there's a will, there's a way :P Anyway, let me know if you change your mind. I'm looking forward to the new version.

Cheers,
- Harven
