Tuning and SCS wheels for Maxicube and other issues

Unread post #1by Explore_Transport » 27.12.2020, 08:28

Having re-purchased the K108, along with a fresh purchase of the K200, B-double Vawdrey and Maxicube trailer I went to have a look at kitting the trailers out, here lay an issue.

The Maxicube seems to lack any customisation except what colour to have it and the wheels do not seem to be that accurate. As such would it be possible on the next update to have the ability to put scs wide rims on the ATS version, and SCS stock trailer rims on the ETS version given that they are already 385 section tyres with the ability to choose either 55 or 65 profile tyres.

The trailer could also benefit from additional parts such as a new set of optional side-skirts, a tyre carrier, different bumpers etc.

would this be at all possible with the Maxicube?

also..
Fix paint template to stop stretching of artwork :) Vawdrey trailers could also benefit from this.

more cargo loads too.

Added after 1 minute 9 seconds:
oh.. and maybe a tri-axle option for Maxicube? :D

suggestion for the 4-axle'

3 chassis options:

c1 - ax1, ax2 steering (with lift kit), ax3, ax4 fixed

c2 - ax1 steer, ax2 ax3 fixed, ax4 steering

c3 - ax1, 2, 3 fixed, ax4 steered

additional underframe accessories

yeah @aussie_games, also where is the fuel tank for the reefer? I presume its in the box ahead of the axles however a fuel tank just behind the landing gear across the frame or 2 fuel tanks "shot gun" style in front of the box would also be a nice touch.

Fender options of open-wheel US style, (like the current ATS trailers), covered arches (like current) and Chereau style would also be nice, perhaps with mudflaps between the axles.

Also the ETS2 version needs red marker tape around the back doors, silver (or yellow / orange) down the sides and the top corners, with FRC markings at the top corner at the front.

FRC
11-2025

ATS version and ETS version - the 4 lights in the frame in the middle atop and below the doors need to be 3 small marker lights, (esp. ATS version).

it is however a nice trailer to pull.

Added after 2 minutes 29 seconds:
ATS version needs red/white reflective tape long the bottom of the body by the metal frame, and along the bottom of the doors and the under-ride guard.

If RTA devs want, I will provide photos to help them, this trailer has so much potential.

Added after 58 minutes 31 seconds:
addional chassis ideas:

With the trailer sitting high when unhitched, perhaps an A chassis and a B-chassis,
A-chassis sits level like the SCS trailers

B-chassis sits raised like it does now, (ideal for RTA trucks)

also as its axles are all at the rear, for the ETS version - quad axle steering

I look forward to the update in around a little over 24 hours time. this sits quite nice behind the RJL

Added after 37 minutes 28 seconds:
however with the lights on the rear of the trailer above the door, you have 4 in the centre, perhaps as a slot option for a future update, 3 a set up like imaged here Image

and to go for a more North American style
mudflaps without wings
Image

i look forward to the upcoming update as it is a really nice trailer

Added after 40 seconds:
...it also needs a fuel tank for the reefer pod, its not modelled.
