Hi,

I installed Promods 2.41 with TCP on top of ETS2 1.35
And it's amazing. I have a lot of fun playing the game and it works like a charm.

One thing bothers me : the fake companies. There is still a lot of them. I started a game in France and all the companies from there are vanilla (Kaarfor, Voitureux, Batisse,....).
It breaks the immersion immensly.

Is there a way to have real companies logos and names? Maybe is there a compatible mod somewhere?
Also is it something you guys planned in the future, to add those missing logos?

Thank you for the amazing mod.

Do you use standalone or replacement version?

Not all companies are replaced yet unfortunately, especially from DLCs.

I use standalone, but the replacement file is only for trailers and I was mentioning the companies logos and names (the 3D logos at company bases and the signs)

I just made a small custom based on a previous mod by satan19990
https://forum.scssoft.com/viewtopic.php?t=162432

And it works, i just kept the dds files for some companies. My custom mod looks like this :
*def>company>(definitions files)
*material>ui>company>small>(small logo)
*model2>sign>company_logos>(3D logos)
*manifest.sii
*mod_description.txt

I made a zip file (store compression) and put it in the mod directory. And it works. But I have only 6 or 7 real companies. And when I try to add my own DDS logo textures the game becomes unstable and crashes. I don't know why.
Anyway.

As for the future, i may suggest those names and logos for companies in France :
Batisse -> Bouygues Construction or Saint-Gobain
Nucleon -> EDF
Nos Paturages -> Danone or Bonduelle
Voitureux -> Citroen
Gomme_Monde -> Michelin
Lisette Logistics -> Amazon or Primeminister
etc....

It is just a suggestion based on work already done in the past.
I would love to see those in promods. It is the missing piece of a great achievement. The Promods map :)

The DLC France companies have not yet been added to the TCP... We have a shortage of developers for this pack and its lagging behind sadly.
I would love to see those companies replaced too!
