@gg88, XBS is an honest to goodness real person, and a bloody awesome modder to boot. His mods are made available for you to use at no cost and you may modify them for your personal use (as noted in the mod files and on the first page of this thread). Totally awesome, right?

What does this mean for you? Well, you may make edits/changes to the mod; as long as you do NOT share / distribute a mod of XBS' truck for others to use (so no uploads to mod sites, etc). However; you can make your changes and show them off on a video if you like - just so long as you don't share your mod of the truck.

ALSO: If you want to make changes that you can share with others you could make a mod which is an 'add-on' to the truck (and label it as an add-on); a mod which would go above the Volvo F88 in the mod manager. That mod would contain the files - and only those files, not the truck - you created/edited to make your changes work on the XBS' truck.

Hope that clears things up for you.

Asnwer
Thanks for your detailed answer (sorry, haven't seen it until today). However, I got in contact with XBS by PM some weeks ago, and received a green light to show "my" truck in a video, so that's what I did. Didn't seem very popular among the youtube audience though. I posted another video today which I guess will be even less popular :D again an edit of one of XBS:s trucks, but not much left of his truck this time...

However, I'm fed up with modding now, I have no clue what I'm doing. Instead of doing things as they should be done, I'm taking shortcuts and roundabouts to reach the result I want. But it causes to much problems, both with the trucks and in my head. So I will settle with my Volvo G89 14x12 and my DAF tank... ;)

Great truck.
I'm still using it in ets2 v1.38. No windows animation and I had to edit it to make the sound work. I use the Volvo stock sound from SCS.
Right now it is my favorite truck for the map EAA v5.5 (Brazil and South America).
It would be nice to have this beauty updated for ETS2 v1.38. :D

Great truck! Thanks a lot, XBS!

Added some engine/sound and made a matching trailer skin. :)

thx ...
Yes, the Kässbohrer would be great for this truck. Unfortunately it's not ownable and as far as I can tell needs an update for 1.38 as well.
Robinicus made a guide for the 1.38 sii/sui change for ATS on steam. That should do the trick.
Maybe I'll give it a try one day.

That's perfect and realistic with the double mounted trailer wheels. (Which XBS refused to make originally.)

The base of the truck is XBS, but I believe the trailer is made by a Turk ...
Sorry for my poor English ;)

Do you have any links for these old wheels?
