[Release] Volvo FH16 Waberers light boxes (V0.1, 2013-12-14)

Volvo FH16 2012 Waberers light boxes V0.1
Last update: 2013-12-14 @ 19:20
Compatible with: ETS 2 V1.8+

By a request, i have created a custom set of light boxes for the Volvo FH16 2012.
All stand alone, doesn't replace anything in game.
They match the "glass box" on the truck, as good as i wanted to make the template. (Can't tell from > 1 m away)
This one is a high resolution variant, 1024x1024 pixels for the DDS file. If you want low resolution, try altering yourself (Source files available) first. Tell me what you have problems with.
They come in 4 variants, all with custom names, workshop icons and requirements.
  • Yellow on blue - €1500, level 5
  • Blue on white - €1300, level 3
  • Blue on Yellow - €2500, level 20
  • Yellow only - €2250, level 20
Don't complain about the levels, the mod is unlocked and you can change the requirements and prices in the files under "/def/vehicle/truck/volvo.fh16_2012/accessory/decals".

Use your imagination for the other variants... ;)


Installation instructions / How to use.

Install
  1. Download the latest version below.
  2. Place the downloaded ".scs" file into your mod folder. (My Documents\Euro Truck Simulator 2\mod)
  3. Start the game and before choosing your profile, select it and click "EDIT".
  4. On the right hand side, make sure the mod you downloaded is checked.
  5. Hit apply and enter the game. Follow instructions on how to use.
How to use
  • You must own a Volvo FH16 2012 truck with a Globetrotter cab and you MUST be level 3 or higher to see the first available light box.
  • In the accessories menu when either purchasing or customizing your truck at a workshop. Click the slot as shown in the first picture above.
  • Select your desired light box from the list on the left.
  • If you are level 20 or higher you should see all 4 options. See above for the various unlock levels and price list.
Troubleshooting
If you have issues with the mod, make sure you don't have any conflicting mods. (This mod supplies it's own files, no conflicts should exist)
If you have a custom Volvo FH16 2012 truck mod that isn't compatible with version 1.8+ of ETS 2 then this mod will do NOTHING for you.
If you are on an ETS 2 version that is less than 1.8 then this mod will do NOTHING for you.

Thank you.
ATM, I'm preparing to release the current version of the new FH. People are forced to choose between the new decal option and the old mod with side skirts for 6x chassis (probably).
And, anyway, if you saw my latest decal... it's not that complicated.
But I would like to have it properly made. I placed the text on top of the globes and XL background, but my skills with graphic design are not very ... high. It a bit messy. If I could manage to remove the Globetrotter text (or the FH16 750) completely and keep only what's behind, then add my text... but it's not going to happen soon. :D

Nice, thanks for that mod. :D

But, noooooooooooooo, it will not work with that Waberers skin I use. :(

Could you be so gracious that you made a skin like this too?

I already told you why it doesn't work. :D

And yes, i can get the skin out of there. But to be honest, so can you with ETS 2 Studio.

Cadde beats the whoopee out of me why you need a poll for this, it a fantastic mod just like all your other creations, but it is simple only use and comment if they like it. As a retired auditor I rarely rate anything perfect, a 9 plus is as good as it gets.

It's a great mod, i guess :? I could probably buy a Volvo and try it out if you want me to rate it :roll: ;)

I'm with Flywheel on the rating of a mod this way. I mean, some people would just rate it 10 just because it is a Volvo mod and other may put a 1 just out of jealousy as they own a Scania Streamline :lol:

But I guess I know what you're aiming at ;)

Hmm, what truck do i drive... ok it'll be raing 1. KIDDING :lol:
