Besides the 5 minute waiting I'm not able to manage creating any fucking new sign (editable signs are not a problem). Either they doesn't appear in the map or the map editor crashes. Now I tried the old way (pmd-editing with SCSEditor) with model2-signs (company logo). But as soon as I want to see it in browser, the program crashes with access violation (C0000005).
In this tutorial mandelsoft wrote about the new way how signs work. I thought that this belongs to navigation signs (model).
My question: Is this right or is pmd-editing complete out of time?
Another question: In an older video tutorial I heard that file names of the mat files (automat) must be 32 bytes long. But in actual base.scs they only have 16 characters. Is this correct?

To make new signs you need Blender where you'll model them.

Actually, I succeed to make a new sign without a blender. I took .dds file of one sign which has a similar size to sign which I needed, converted .dds to .bmp, then edited file in photoshop, convert from .bmp to .dds, change def files, change paths in pmg, pmc, pmd and tobj files, then, copy-paste .mat file and define it.

That works for similar-sized signs indeed, but it's a very limited way to make new signs.

Go to material/ui/map/road and see how SCS did it. You need .dds, .mat and .tobj files there.
Also, you define them in def/world/overlay.yoursuffix.sii
