1. It is possible to make your own frontpanel theme for Cobra cb radio. You will need to edit this texture:
2. If you want to use SISL`s accessories mod with this mod, then only install main mod package and do not install SCS Trucks addon for ATS
3. If you plan to use this mod with my physics mod for ATS, then make sure this mod has higher priority, than physics mod;
4. By default steering wheel animation now set to 1800 degrees. To change it to default 900 degrees, simply open def\vehicle\truck\truck_name\interior\animations.sui and animations_auto.sui and change s_wheel1800.pma to s_wheel.pma and then save changes;
5. Interior lamps can be installed by clicking on one of the upgrade “circles” located on the truck roof. Then it must be activated by hitting same button, which assigned to the beacon (O by default);
6. You can create your own license plate number by modyfying alpha-channel of \vehicle\truck\upgrade\plates\your_plate.dds texture;
7. You can modify existing license plate US theme by modyfying \vehicle\truck\upgrade\plates\frame_style.dds texture;
8. It is possible to disable GPS from VNL interior: open \def\vehicle\truck\volvo.vnl\interior\animations.sui file with any text editor (notepad++ and similar tools are recommended). Then at the top of the file (string 2 and 3) you`ll see two strings:
generic_anim: “/vehicle/truck/volvo_vnl/interior/generic_anim.pma” # GPS enabled
#generic_anim: “/vehicle/truck/volvo_vnl/interior/generic_anim_nogps.pma” # GPS disabled
Upper string is enabled by default, which adds animated GPS device inside VNL interior. Lower string is disabled by default (see this # symbol before it? It is used to disable animation after it).
So, to disable animated GPS, you should put # before the upper string and at the same time remove it from the lower string. Save changes and confirm file update inside archive. Now animated GPS will be removed from the interior.
9. It is possible to change positions of both side and front sun protective visors inside interior. At the same time it will be impossible to change position of steering wheel. It`s a technical limitation. Open \def\vehicle\truck\volvo.vnl\interior\animations.sui
At the top of the file you`ll find these strings:
wheel_updown_anim: “/vehicle/truck/volvo_vnl/interior/wheel_updown_anim.pma” # You control steering wheel position, front visor position adjustment unavailable!
wheel_frontback_anim: “/vehicle/truck/volvo_vnl/interior/wheel_frontback_anim.pma” # You control steering wheel position, side visor position adjustment unavailable!
#wheel_updown_anim: “/vehicle/truck/volvo_vnl/interior/wheel_updown_anim_visor.pma” # You control front visor position, steering wheel position adjustment unavailable!
#wheel_frontback_anim: “/vehicle/truck/volvo_vnl/interior/wheel_frontback_anim_visor.pma” # You control side visor position, steering wheel position adjustment unavailable!
Upper two strings are enabled by default – they make possible to change position of the steering wheel. If you don`t need such function, but instead you want to manipulate with interior visors positions, you need to disable these two animations by putting # before them.
Then remove # symbols before lower two strings. That`s all. Save changes and confirm file update inside archive – you will now have possibility to control positions of side and front visors through the steering wheel position controls.
