Volvo FH 2012 realistic dashboard

#1 Post by piva » 25 Aug 2017 07:19

2021-01-07 For version 1.39

Maybe this dash is not "realistic" but it looks like a "realistic", but I change places of some info and added something like a current speed at main central display.
Also added instant consumption bar and average consumption bar on trip info display with trip travel time and trip average speed.

PS. I got @kriechbaum sound and I want new dash computer for this truck. :lol: So please no request.

I don't want work with this truck dashboard, because it has very bad dashboard UV-map layout of all trucks in game.

Ratarder still not removed from animation my SCS :lol:
"acc" visible as cruise control - an interesting idea - I'll think about it

EDIT
Retarder icon - present on "All in One" dashboard.

For ACC, use ID 1250 , it's the memory ID (basically, the "ACC" icon supposed to be there when cruise control is at on, even if it's non active), Also, ideally, it means that you should make the cruise control speed and the bracket surrounding it disappear when it's non-active instead of displaying zero (if i'm not mistaken, you would have to use ID 1240 with ID 1100 as a child according to SCS modding wiki, I think that some truck in ATS are already setted up like that if you want to check)

For the retarder icon, it's mostly about making one in the center display, where it's supposed to be. I understand that with non-modded truck, it will cause 2 retarder icon, but as far as I know, the icon is supposed to go there

I know

For creating dashboard computer, while I "understand" it, I cannot "Vizualize" it. Which mean that while I can make changes (changing some values, or exchanging an icon for another), I just don't know how to add or move something

rookie_one, thanks for retarder info! Gonna have to fix it on my mod, though i haven't yet figured out where is engine brake icon should be. It seems to me that there shouldn't be one at all

Let's try - I give all permission for update this mod. Maybe we will have new one dashboard maker, like Kuba ;)
I don't say that it is hard work, it need time and patience. So ... try.
