Volvo lightbox templates

With the new volvo tuning dlc the have changed the 2012 lightbox making the older lightbox templates obsolete. There is also new lightbox accessories for the 2009 volvo as well.

This is just a little template pack to be able to make your own standalone lightboxes!

It come with 2 for the 2012 volvo (plastic and paint) and a the 2009 volvo

and heres one for Schumi and overfloater 2009 volvo fh

To make your own standalone change the name's of the files from coname1/2/3 for your name (to keep it easy don't use cap letter and keep it just 7 letters/numbers)

you will need a tobj editor
for tobj files (mods studio 2 has one)

https://www.mods.studio/download

and a hex editor for pmd files (hxd is the one I use)

https://mh-nexus.de/en/hxd

Here's a guide by @Cadde on hex editing
viewtopic.php?f=172&t=190173#p432985

And like @Cadde once said "DO NOT... I REPEAT, DO NOT just use "decal_template" in your released mod or it will conflict with other equally lazy modders. Thus completely negating the point of having a stand alone mod. Then you can save yourself the time and just edit "decals.dds" in the Volvo FH16 directory."
Also his page still has some good stuff about making a standalone lightbox that still applies the this one.

Also a special thanks to @MDModder for his old mods studio 2 template that this mod structure is based on and @overfloater for the 2009 Globetrotter lightbox model!

Hi @Lost Virtual

Thanks for your work and explaination. I've almost succesfully edited all the files and will have my own standalone lightbox soon.

I'm just encountering this problem. The not painted (black background) Lightbox works. But with the painted option for the fh2012 lightbox the painted part turns red like it's missing the texture. Could you by any chance tell me which reference I missed or screwed up?
I've added a screenshot for reference:
Lightbox.png
Thanks in advance for your response!

I totally forgot about the log...

I've renamed all the 'conameX' to 'pupboxX'
These are the errors:

Code: Select all

00:01:51.766 : [Vehicle accessory]: 'pupbox3.volvo.fh16_2012.decals' /def/vehicle/truck/volvo.fh16_2012/accessory/decals/pupbox3.sii

For the file, should I just send you the entire .scs?

@DKDBEM4 do you have the volvo turning dlc? because painted lightboxes are exclusive to the dlc.
