[1.3] Volvo FM/FMX fix

#1 Post by galimim » 19 Oct 2019 09:34

I told you I was working on something ;)

I was never happy with how the FMX looked in the game, due to the way it was modelled, it was just too low. It looked bad and it caused issues with advanced coupling. So I have decided to combine the FM and FMX fixes since the trucks are virtually the same, it makes my life a whole lot easier if there is only one mod with both trucks using the same base.

Volvo FM Euro 6 originally by jekich1 & Stas556 3.2

Thanks to tobrago for letting me make a compatibility addon for Signs on your Truck mod

Thanks to Sogard3 for making a lowdeck version of the 4x2 chassis!

Thanks to Schumi for older style of rear lights

Thanks to Eugene for headlight protection and dirt deflectors!

Thanks to Flemming V for BDF parts and allowing me to adapt it to my parts

The mod includes:
FM:

Code: Select all

4 Cabs
4x2 chassis
4x2 low deck chassis
6x2 chassis
6x4/4 midlift chassis
6x2 tag chassis
6x4 chassis
FMX:

Code: Select all

3 Cabs
4x2 chassis
4x4 chassis
6x2 pusher chassis
6x2 tag chassis

If you want to change the light box decal you will find a template in folder "template". You need to save in folder \vehicle\truck\upgrade\decals\volvo_fm\textures with the name "textures_volvo_fm.dds" and default size is 2048x1024 for xhsl cab and "globetrotter.dds" for hslp cab!

Change log:

1.0:	Original mod
1.1:	Added realistic headlight pattern by hastantyo as an option
	Added xenon headlights as an option
1.2:	Update for patch 1.37
1.3:	Update for patch 1.39

Nice, thanks @galimim. But could you make 4x2 low deck for FMX compatible? I know it is 'hard sci fi' but it can be nice to have it :)

Thx for these mod. Its a good Truck for ADR or Glass-Transport. Hope someday these truck had a realistic interior (A Dashboard like the FH 4) in the cabin of the old FH 3, because FM use the old cabin with the same interior parts like FH 3.

Interior is totally different from the previous version of the truck. Someone would have to model it from scratch, but that is way beyond my skill.

No the FMX wont get low deck chassis. They dont exist in real life :D

@xXCARL1992Xx glad you figured it out ;)

@jntgaming thanks for the video.
