Re: B73FLY's EDXP-US [1.36] (24 Nov 2019) -- Fresh start/Next update after 1.37 release

#122 Post by Boeing73FLY » 31 Mar 2020 17:46

Sooo...yeah. I'm here. I'm not dead. I've been lingering in the IRL world for the majority of my time now.

As some of you may have already noticed from following the SCS blog, 1.37 will deliver extensive changes to the sounds in-game. SCS is switching to FMOD, and I quite like what that sound engine does to many existing games out there using it. I know I am going to be working my butt off in converting any existing sounds to the new format, but that's okay. I will try to make it work as I go through these unexpected turn of IRL events. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, I am now under a 'stay-at-home' order in the state of Arizona, where I am studying. All of my classes were moved to online a couple weeks ago, and it has been really hard to adjust for some classes (especially math). But from what I've been doing lately, I have more time for video games. But I'm not going to let that be a priority over my studies. So with all of that being said, I'm planning to give myself a fresh start to this mod. There will not be an update until after 1.37 is released.

What should you expect me to do with this mod for the 1.37 update?
- A fresh start for this mod: I am going to re-do all of the work I have done. I will also start using a different version naming convention. If it's designed for game version 1.37, the mod version will display 1.37.# , with # being the revision number. This should make any mod user know that the mod will work for the specified game version. As usual, the mod will no longer work for any game version before 1.37.
- As of this post, I have a new computer. I managed to install several programs essential for modding ETS2 and ATS. So at least I will be able to get to work by the time the game update releases officially...out of beta.
- Real life issues will still hinder on my future work, so I will not set any exact release dates from this point forward. My mod will be ready when it is ready.

Well, that's about it for now. I hope you all are well and staying as healthy as possible wherever you are. Please, for the love of God, stay home. I care about every single one of you, even if we have not talked. We are all in this, TOGETHER. Big love to all of you!

There is a new title of this mod. It has been renamed to "Enhanced Driving XPerience" to better reference the acronym. And with that, version 'TWO POINT OH' is out now for ATS version 1.37! The mod version appropriately displays the corresponding version of the game, and this is how I intend to proceed on updates from here on out.

The mod should automatically be updated for you on Workshop. Welcome to the FMOD era! Remember that from here on out the mod is working between 1.37 and the future versions of the game. I still need to learn myself FMOD, so there will not be any sound modifications from this mod at least for now. The original purpose of the mod is kept faithfully. Safe travels, everyone!

Keep in mind that the Snow Sounds Edition of this mod is still REQUIRED, but Rain Sounds Edition should ONLY be enabled because I have not updated the Snow Sounds Edition, and that will not be done until some time closer to Winter 2021.

Can someone tell me the main difference between this mod and Cips traffic density mod?

Just reduced spawn rate or something more?

Thanks

@Shyfty221 The traffic density enhancements in my mod only modifies what is currently included in the base game. cip adds more to the traffic spawning in his mod. Consider mine a 'lite' version of his mod as I have only taken a snippet of his code and applied it to my mod (with his request, of course).

UPDATE 2 Aug: Traffic signals are the focus items on this small update. The five-sided intersection in Twin Falls, Idaho, for example is tweaked to have longer green lights now. I am still working on adjusting other traffic signal timings, particularly T-intersections. I plan to have the left-turn and the straight-thru traffic lights turn green at the same time on one side (with the opposite traffic still held by a red light), which was the way it was when this mod first came about for ATS. Faithful EDXP users might remember what it was like before.

Full changelog:

Code: Select all

- Tweaked traffic signal timings, particularly those with protected left turns.
  - Longer green light times, and extended yellow light times in some intersections.
  - NOTE: Some traffic signal timings are still WIP. Always drive on with caution when driving through ANY controlled intersection.
- STAA Double trailers in traffic appear more frequently.
The mod should be updated automatically through Workshop.
