Hello. I want to ask if is it possible to create new fonts now? Did something got changed in new sign editor? When I'm driving in ProMods I can see many different fonts in countries... Is it still created by special software from SCS?

Yes, it requires specialised software that SCS nor we are allowed to share.

Okay, now I understand. So neither can I add special characters in already exisisting fonts? (e.g. Ą, Ł, Ó)?

Hmm I mean those three characters are already existing on the map:
Ą in Elbląg
Ł in Łódź
and Ó in Łódź as well ;)

It depends whether the font supports these characters. Quite a portion of the fonts ProMods added do support the vast majority of the Latin Extended range, which included Polish characters; most SCS fonts only use what they need for those countries.

Hello again. Maybe it sounds weird but I've resolved my problem... I made Polish city names (with polish sign font) as an "atlas" in templates editor! If something is stupid but it works, it isn't stupid...

I tried to add new sign image assets to ats and ets2 i did the .mat and .tobj files and .dds files using the dxtbmp program and i keep getting the red "texture not found" images instead. Do I also need to create a .mat in the automat folder and do I need a special program to generate the automat folder .mat files I need if I need them in order to make it work.

Check your game.log, it'll tell you what's the problem (red lines will appear).
You can post that message here, so we can investigate.
