How do I make trailer skins?

#1 Post by Legolover134 » 30 Jan 2018 00:00

I'm sorry if I need a lot of babying for this, but I can't figure out trailer skins. I have successfully made a truck skin, it is in-game and working fine, but I can't find out how to make a trailer to match it. Could one of you gods of modding out there point me in the right direction? I've tried YouTube tutorials, but they didn't really help me.

First of all it would be good to know for what trailer and if you use a software like ETS2Studio. If so then just click in there on trailers and do it step by step. But the trailer models in there are outdated so I would advise you to find a trailer for the current version.
1. You unpack this mod with WinRar or similar
2. Go into def folder under trailer and click trough the folders in there until you see the folder company_paint_jobs
3. Create in the folder where company_paint_jobs is found a folder called custom_paint_jobs
4.Copy one of the .sii files from the company folder to the custom folder and rename it
5.Open the .sii file and edit the name of the .tobj path e.g. from company.tobj to custom.tobj
6. Now you can do your skin for the trailer
6.1 If there is no template go to vehicle folder and open one of the existing .dds files and change it your
skin
7.Save your skin under the same name as the .tobj and as the .sii file and save it in the folder under vehicle where all skins are located
8.Open with the .tobj editor from ETS2Studio one of the already existing tobjs in the folder where the skins are located and rename the .dds file name to yours
9.Save the .tobj under the same name as the texture and the sii file before
10. Repack the mod with WinRar and put it in Mod Folder

I am looking to skin the stock long box trailer, and I may do a reefer. I do use ETS2Studio. So how do I get a trailer from ATS into ETS2Studio? I can't get to the files from the game's folder; do I have to use a modded trailer or something?
