I've been working on a B-double consisting of a VAK V-Slider and a Limetec semi-trailer.

The mod is based on the Limetec V2 By AB 3DSM Customs. If the original author(s) contact me and ask me to remove the mod I will do so.

  • Liftable axles (forward most axle)
  • Steerable axles (rearmost axle)
  • Skinnable (in a similar fashion as the original Limetec V2 trailer)
  • 143 different cargoes with realistic weights
    • Compatible with the cargoes from Scandinavia & Vive la France ! DLCs
Planned Features in Future Versions (not guaranteed):
  • Adaptation to the new trailer paint job system
  • 2-axle version of the V-Slider
  • replacement of the temperature control unit of the V-Slider with an undermounted version
Compatibility:
Tested in Euro Truck Simulator v1.28.x.
DOES NOT WORK IN OLDER VERSIONS!

nicely done :!: :)

I'm not sure if I did something wrong, but I had to take the text.dds from the "first" Limetectrailer to this template to get my lights on the back.... :roll:

another question ... something I can do to change this in gamesettings or is it a Blenderoperation to reduce the "size" :?:

Code: Select all

<WARNING> [resource_task] Default temporary buffer is insufficient while reading '/vehicle/trailer_eu/vak_v_slider/trailer_limetec.pmg' with size 29094688

The V-Slider's texture should be \vehicle\trailer_eu\vak_v_slider\textures\text.dds and the texture for the rear trailer (Limetec/VAK) \vehicle\trailer_eu\vak_v_slider\textures_limetec\text.dds. Do note that the textures are in 2048x but the template is in 4096x.

And that size thing is a Blender operation, the trailer is quite high-poly unfortunately.

yeah, did as I usually do, but template for the Limetec I had to add the lights/mudflaps/logo - the reserved area in the png
when I did the template all white for the skin it looked like this
Image

as seen above the sidelights, mudflaps ... all white :roll:
adding those said things back to normal....

Image

guess I have to do the same with the slider (not tested yet) - no problems with the rear, however sidelights/position lights are all white
Image

in-game those lights looks like they should be ...

Well, obviously you use the original text texture as a base and make your skin on top of that, that's why there is the reserved area. :roll:
In a future version when I add the support for the new paint job system you don't have to do that anymore as then the lights and other stuff will be in a separate file.

A very nice one!
Thanks for sharing; pity the poly count is to heavy for my PC to handle it smoothly...
frame rates drops to 20 fps, and that is to slow to enjoy it.

Any plans to reduce the polys in the future ?

@gstaraz I will be rebuilding the trailer pretty much completely so polycount is expected to drop drastically. I recommend following the development on my SCS forum thread as that is the main distribution channel for this mod (and I'm more active there). ;)

@LoaderSaints Thanks for the reply, I just noticed that I posted the same question on both forums... sorry for that; obviously it was "on of those days" for me :)

I am very glad that You plan rebuilding the model, because this is the only trailer that I had not the chance to drive in real life, so I am very curious to learn to back it at least on a simulation.

Have a nice day!
