@zippe did you do BIC markings on the back too?

thing is, they would have the same cube whether the short or long box.

Perhaps @Flemming V could make the BIC markings a template feature for the container at some stage, so all we have to do is type the 11 digit BIC code with the Tare and Cube details already there, that way they would appear ONLY on the containers rather than being a feature of the cool liner and Profiliner - then we'd just need to ensure that we made our skins accordingly, leaving room for the BIC codes on the sides and the markings on the back doors.

@FlemmingV Is there a reason why you choose to have the tandem coupling on the truck so far underneath the chassis?
Yes, this is how they are in Denmark and exact how my Dad's truck'n'trailer was.

And this picture is from Holland btw, so I guess it's the same in that country.

My question is therefore, could you move the coupling more to the back of the chassis, or perhaps add an optional feature to have trucks with couplings more to the back?
No, that will not happen as I then have 27 tandem trailers and 63 drawbar trailers to edit/adjust as well, and again, this rig is build as we have them here in Denmark. :D
LOL, I don't want you to change all the trailers, that would be maddness :D

Perhaps I should explain my thoughts a bit more: your mod works perfectly and it's just great and that's why I would like to use it. The only but is in the fact that it only can be used with ownable trailers, and as said I have some issues with that. Therefore I also use the Ekeri Tandem mod because it (besides ownable) can also be used as in-game trailers (that does not have the ownable trailer issues). So my main direction is using a rigid truck with in-game company trailers. This boils down to two possibilites:

1. Your truck(s) have an option to change the position of the coupling (like an accessoiry when buying or upgrading the truck) so the in-game Ekeri Tandem trailers can be used (your trailers are then not used, so they don't need changing)
2. Your trailers are added as in-game trailers, that would be the most neat feature (although I don't know how much work/time this will cost you)

Regards
Gesture

Edit the dds file. A few pages back there are a couple of skins for the box,

Search "ocean concepts" and "Meridian" and you will find them

This would require additional chassis as the draw hitch can not be made into an accessory completely due to it having advanced trailer coupling colliders which need to be present in the chassis collision model. So in each chassis there can only be exactly one location for the draw hitch. Unless changes have been made into the game itself which would allow this... :ugeek:

There are a good few skins on the steam workshop for the BDF Tandem mod. Search on there :)
