Hello all,

I'm a newbee in creating map in ETS2. I read several post in this forum and in other pages in Internet
and I don't understand how I can edit some sign.

Indeed, I start to add some regional/local roads to my map and I would like to add several road signs.
I know that there are a lot of signs, but none of them is related that I want. Thus I saw a category named
sign template, but in this category there are less more items comparing to sign category.

For instante, I would like to use the british sign that indicate a village/town/city to the left and to the
right like this (sign indicate Porto to the left in the white sign):

In the category sign there are 2 blank signs like this, but I cannot edit them to add text. So, can I
use this item and do something in order to I can use it and add a text (for example London) or I
must create a new item like this?

In addition, I would like to know how I can do the similar sign:
https://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/A22_(auto ... C3%A3o.JPG

I need to do some signs like this with a white, green and blue background.

And finally, I would like to have the similar like in Norway (same color) that indicate there is a
curve to left or right like this (the sign in black and yellow color):

Do I need to create a new template and these cases? I don't know how or I must design the news signs
and how to add these news sign to the game?

Many thanks for your help.

Hello MandelSoft,

Yes, in fact there is the first thing that I done before to post this message, but I don't
understand very well.

I would like to have a real example to edit the "hw services arrow white uk" sign in order
to use it.

Can you please explain me?

Many thanks.

OK, then there is my second question: how familiar are you with Blender or the SCS Blender Tools? If you aren't, I'd start getting familiar with those first, as making editable signs will require model editing. Specifically, you need to change the "hookup" on the sign model to refer to a hookup of an editable sign area. You can find more info in the dedicated section on the SCS forums here.

Hello MandelSoft,

Well, I never use these softwares. I'm going to consult the link you give me.

Many thanks.

Hi OP! Have you found how to do it? I'm portuguese (I know you are as well, maybe you're trying to do the same as me). But have you done it? If so, can you explain it to me?
Excited for Iberia :D

Hello NewCoolMapper,

In fact since my last post, I have no time to do a training to Blender tools or other stuff.
However, if you have some tips about this matter, feel free to share with me!

Não há assim muitos portugueses neste fórum é pena, somos das nacionalidades com
menos representações aqui no forum da ProMods. Abraços amigo.
