Download it without any commercials, you even don't need to wait for any DL countdown. No DL speed limit, no password or login before DL, no mod protection and of course 100% Free of charge. :)

Mod Compatible:
This mod uses ALL the original game trucks and add tandem chassis to them. It does not replace anything in game. Truck updates from SCS will automatic be used by this mod.

About:
To drive these Tandem trucks you need to go to your favorite truck dealer and upgrade a truck chassis.
After selecting your tandem chassis 4x2, 6x2, 6x4 or 8x4 chassis use the dot just behind the cabin to add the cargo body box or chassis accessories.
You can paint and upgrade all truck with same accessories as from the game, just like all other stock trucks in the game. Mod adds even more accessories.
Tandem and Drawbar trailers will be added to ALL game cargo, so remember to buy yourself a trailer in trailer shop. All trailers will WOTR and Cargo Market cargo.

Make your own company (skin):
You can download several skins for my mod, but one skin I think would be good, if you would like to create you own is the "Original" Skin, as I call it.
Download Original skin here: Skin Pack here (Grey)
Unpack the skin pack in a temp folder somewhere on your PC.
Edit all 5 devil.dds files in your favorit DDS editor to have your own skin.
5 devil.dds files in skin pack are to be found here:

CISTERN SKIN files should go in:
\vehicle\share\skin\cargo\cistern\devil.dds
\vehicle\share\skin\trailer\cistern\devil.dds

ALL OTHER SKIN files should go in:
\vehicle\share\skin\accessory\devil.dds
\vehicle\share\skin\cargo\box\devil.dds
\vehicle\share\skin\trailer\box\devil.dds

Just overwrite all these devil.dds files that you find, with your own skin dds files.
JUST remember that there is 2 different kinds of devil.dds files. One for Cistern and one for all other places.
Pack the skin mod again and add it to \documents\Euro Truck Simulator 2\mod folder, and make sure it is on top, in the list of mods inside the game.

Find more skin packs here: Download Skin Pack here

Remember to look for all my other mod as well, in this forum or on Steam Workshop. :-)

Installation: (Not Steam)

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
7. Buy a trailer and connect them in your garage
8. 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 without selling. No harm done.

Copyright:
Please be kind and ask me if you want to use some of my stuff in your own mod. Pay mods not accepted.

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

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:
