Description about Multiple Trailers in Traffic v3.2 for Ets2
Multiple Trailers in Traffic v3.2 for Euro Truck Simulator 2 game.
Where it came from:
Someone anonymous did one for earlier versions of both games but it didn't get updated after an SCS update.
It was credited to Jazzycat but although it used his truck models it never appeared on his web site,
so I assume his participation was without his knowledge. This one is based on what the original did,
but only uses SCS models, has been kept more or less up to date and has had extra bits added to it.
What it does:
Adds drawbar double and B-Double trailers in ETS2 traffic
What you get:
- Drawbar and B-double versions of the new SCS box vans, curtainsiders, insulated trailers and reefers;
drawbar double Profiliners using the v1.31 model (so you don't need the Krone DLC).
Paint jobs are the standard-issue SCS ones plus a handful of home-made ones.
Real companies mods should replace the SCS skins with their own, though the Scania one from
the ProMods TCP fell off the ends of the short trailers last time I looked.
The mod has improved sounds and truck colours, courtesy of the inestimable cipinho of this parish,
who also pointed me in the right direction over the traffic rules which make the whole thing work.
Where we are now:
There is now a Baltic DLC Addon, which adds paint jobs from the DLC to the previously-available
trailers (except the Profiliners) and trailer-dolly-trailer combos (what SCS calls "HCT" trailers)
in Finland, South America, North Africa and those bits of the former Soviet Union that aren't now in the EU.
The .7z file contains the .scs files for ETS2 and the Baltic DLC Addon.
If you don't have the Baltic DLC, ignore the latter.
Some trailers - notably the B-double fronts, the short rears and both ends of the Profiliner double - arrive before their wheels do.
This is because SCS didn't intend them to appear in traffic and hence the models used have no
corresponding LOD (level of detail) models, with provision for the trailer wheels.
I am hoping to fix this, but it looks like it might make my head ache.
The rear trailers in the Baltic DLC Addon have a disembodied number plate hovering above them,
but it's either that or an invisible dolly and I know which I prefer.
The "HCT" trailers are a bit rubbish at tight junctions. Nothing I can do about this. Sorry.
See the description text files in the mod for the countries/regions in which the trailers appear,
and how to make them appear everywhere if that's what you want.
SCS already have some traffic doubles buried in the trailer definitions in ETS2,
but they're not yet switched on. Hopefully they'll arrive sooner rather than
later and make most of this mod redundant...
This is a "bare-bones" mod and you are actively encouraged to take it apart
to see how it works and put your own trucks and trailers in it.
