How do I add/use custom skins on your trucks?

Unread post #1by jkisaragi » 07.12.2017, 09:16

RTA,

I would like to be able to create company skins for the Mack Superliner to match the other trucks in my fleet and due to how your mod is setup I am unable to create any skins for it(or any of the trucks I purchased).

Normally, I use Photoshop to create the .DDS based on the truck template, then I import/create a truck in ETS2 Studio and create my .zip of my skins. I complete the mod by adding my mod_desc, icon, and manifest, then save it as an .SCS.

I've created numerous skins this way for SCS as well as other downloaded trucks, but I am at a loss as to how to create a skin for any of your trucks.

v/r,

Jinho

What is failing?

From your post you seem to have got all the things you should. Is it not appearing in game? Or not appearing at all?

TommoK200,

If I had to guess, I would say its because I'm not able to actually import the truck into ETS2 Studio, so it's not exporting correctly. I've tried a few different ways to manually add the truck, but I'm missing key information such as internal truck and cab names.

The company skin mod appears in mod manager with my icon and description, but it does not appear in the paint jobs of the Superliner, which leads me to believe it has to do with the internal truck and cab style names not being correct.

If I change the base truck in ETS2 Studio to a truck that I've imported previously (such as Aradeth's VNL670) the skin now appears under the Volvo(although it doesn't look right since the template is for the Mack and not the Volvo) - so it's not the skin itself or the "mod package" when used with a known good.

When I go ETS2 Studio (v0.7.0.1) -> Options -> Truck Database -> Add Truck -> Load from Mod, the following happens:

ATS_RTA-Mods_MACK_SL-V8_v3.2_Part1.scs <-- "No trucks could be found in the mod file"
ATS_RTA-Mods_MACK_SL-V8_v3.2_Part2.scs <-- "Oh No! Something went wrong! Cannot read that as a ZipFile"
ATS_RTA-Mods_MACK_SL-V8_v3.2_Part3.scs <-- "Oh No! Something went wrong! Cannot read that as a ZipFile"

Same thing with the K200 and K108. I'll try to get some screenshots uploaded later today.

v/r,

Jinho

Ah yeah you have to manually add the Rta trucks, they are not like viper's where you're able to to just click on the scs lol.

Here's my thread with all the trucks internal details etc

viewtopic.php?f=20&t=356&p=6492#p6492

The Mack is on a thread that Pauly did I think but I'm not at my computer to find it.

To add you need to update the truck database in ets2studio.

I can take pics of mine when I get home if you like?

But that should solve your problem :)

Tommo,

Awesome! Thanks, that would be fantastic if you could when you get a chance!

I'm not able to access that thread (must be a VIP thing).
