[TOOL] - Templates for 3rd UVMap - 1.9.x Skins

#1 Post by ohaha » 09 Mar 2014 09:09

Hello, people.
This topic is for posting the templates of the new skins introduced by SCS with 1.9.x patch. These skins are mask type only, as far as I see.
With time I will try to put all the templates, as I extract them.
These skins are a bit different. They are completely symmetrical, you only make one half of the truck.
Also, to activate the 3rd UVMap, the skin definition must specify

Code: Select all

 	alternate_uvset: true

They work, too. This is the reason these skins use an additional UVMap, to allow old types to work, simultaneously.

Well, nothing can be text-ed, except the back the cab, I guess.
These are mainly for artistic shapes etc.

Oh, and another thing... If you follow SCS Software's example you can use the same skins on different trucks. That is a brilliant idea, actually. :) No more endless editing to have a full fleet, just a one time deal.

well in photoshop you can add a text at any place in the file ;). so guess we've had a misscommunication there:P.

that would indeed be awesome much easier to make skins for all trucks then:).

Of course you can add text, in Photoshop. But it's going to be mirrored on the other side of the truck! :)

Hmm. I think it's safe to say I will be sticking with the UV1 style for templating.

I did get worried there for a moment trying the updated blender plugin, for a few minutes there I thought it was going to be impossible to do the old syle. :shock:

Question?
If they change this, the ETS studio is going to be useless now or what?! Any idea? Or they will add changes to meet this requirement of 1.9+.
