Suggestion: personal photos as cabin accessories

#1 Post by festmache » 14 Dec 2019 11:07

What would be awesome: the possibility to add photo frames to the truck cabin, maybe hanging from the ceiling.

If you could easily pick a photo from your local hard disk and use this in the in-game photo frame, this would make it easy to add something personal to the interior of your truck.

I think this could be part of the Cabin Accessories DLC or even a separate DLC, because it adds something special which all current cabin accessories don't support.

A user can place an ill-formed image to crash the game and/or escape the SII interpreter sandbox.

@erkinalp It should be possible to prevent the game from crashing. And yes, it would require some custom code and UI dialogs to allow selecting images... Therefore, I think it would be fair to make it a separate DLC so it's worth the investment for SCS. I think the result would be worth it.

the moment the DX 11 API sees an image that isnt .dds conform it crashes the game to HINDER malicious intent (also because it cant read it) that is already safety enough, if the .dds isnt formatted right the API wont even display it because not conform, and .sii is just plain text, you cant implement any malicious code into it because the game would just dont load the .sii because it isnt game conform (there is no sandbox at all in the game :roll: )

for people who want to use it, SiSL already has some options for it if you cant wait for SCS to maybe implement it

I suppose SCS could add some validation in the upload dialog, so you would see a message like "this image is not in a supported format" rather than the game crashing completely.

By the way, I do realize that there might be mods (or one could make their own mods) for this... However, the point would be to do it in-game, in a user-friendly interface rather than diving into mods. From the gamer's perspective, it would be similar to typing a name when you add a license plate to your cabin.
