ETS2 1.32 open beta had been released that you can have your own trailer. I think it's cool that you're nearly building your own logistic, however I have some opinion about the planting of your trailer. I think it might much more better if you can design yourself.

So I try to design my own trailer. That is the result after my fighting on several hours.

Well, it is no so good because of my lack of skills.😅

I also designed the logos of my logistic in ETS2.

I think that just an expand because as you can see I just added the words on that logo that can be used by public, but it can be a sample of designing company logos.
Mabe it is a cool thing to have your own design. What is your own trailer design with your own logistic in ETS2?
*HC. Logistic(Euro) is now doing business.

Looks like a really cool logo! :)

I always liked this mod with its rusty/dirty containers, that's why I decided to make a skin for it: https://forum.scssoft.com/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=255367

How hard is it to make skins anyway, with the new update I kinda fancy giving it a go even though I'm not good with creative type stuff.

1. You need a template (usually shared by mod's author)
2. You need GIMP/Photoshop or something similar to create your skin (software that works with layers, that helps a lot)
3. And DXTBmp to convert your skin to .dds (or a plugin for Photoshop to save as .dds)
4. And then it's all about correct file structure (adding your skin as a separate one is much harder than just replacing an existing skin with your texture).

@Vøytek

Thanks that sounds pretty straightforward, what about all the default SCS trailers? Do those have templates? it might be nice to do a skin for a truck also.

I've been playing this game for so long and my own modding experience consists of editing some of the values in other peoples mods haha.
