Adding the new DAF Euro 6 to ETS2 Studio


Since a lot of you asked, here's how to add the new DAF XF Euro 6 to ETS2 Studio.
Go to the truck database (in options), and add a new truck. All the data you need to enter can be seen on the screenshot. (...and is also listed below with importaint stuff written in bold).

For detailed information on how to add a truck into E2S, read the blog post we wrote on how to add 50keda's DAF XF105.

Data:
Truck name: DAF XF Euro6
Truck internal name: daf.xf_euro6
Author: SCS Software

Cabins:  (InternalName/Name)
superspace/Super Space
spacespoiler/Space Aero
space/Space

P.S.
There's a bug in our application that can prevent the skin from showing up in the game. If that happens, create the skin again, but leave the 'Suitable for' cabin options as they are by default.

How to import 50keda's DAF into ETS2 Studio

Hey guys'n'girls!

A couple of days ago, 50keda released his awesome DAF XF by 50k on SCS Forums.

Here's an image, so you can see what I'm talking about ;-)


With exceptional mod quality, and superb attention to detail - 50keda made sure this truck will become as legendary as his Scania R2008. And, that means that a lot of people will want to skin this DAF.

Latest release of ETS2 Studio allows users to add any mod truck to the application's database. So, we have tried importing this DAF to our application, just to make sure everything works fine... well. It doesn't. :) To be hones, we would be surprised if anything that we build works like intended. :)

Thankfully, there are no serious errors. Our application just can't properly read cabin names for this truck. And, that's an easy fix. We have prepared simple instructions, so read on.
  1. Open up your ETS2 Studio settings dialog. (Application menu -> Options)
  2. Select 'Truck Database' tab and click 'Add truck'
  3. Click 'Load from mod' and open 50keda's DAF mod. (Default file name is 50k_DAF_XF_v1.scs)
  4. The application should load data like this:
    (Click here for a bigger image - opens in a new window)
  5. Change the truck name to: DAF XF
  6. Enter author name: 50Keda
  7. If you wish, select a preview image.
  8. This is the important part: Edit internal names for all cab variants. Click on the cab variant internal name that you wish to edit, and enter these values:
    1. Space: space_cab
    2. Space with painted mask: space_cab_p
    3. Space Cab Plus: s_cab_plus
    4. Space with Side spoiler: s_cab_plus1
    5. Space with Side spoiler & painted mask: s_cab_plus1p
    6. Space Cab Plus with painted mask: s_cab_plus_p
    7. Super Space: super_s_cab
    8. Super Space with painted mask: super_s_cabp
  9. Your Truck Template Editor window should now look something like this:
    (Click here for a bigger image - opens in a new window)

  10. Click 'Save Truck Template' and you're done.
If you completed the ten above steps successfully, when you return to the Truck Skin Editor, you'll see something like this:



And, on the Skin Properties tab, you'll see all cab variants like this:



Sorry for the inconvenience. We'll fix this little bug in the next version of E2S. It will load truck cab names automatically like it should.

Have fun!

Truck Template Editor bug - database.wtt file missing

Sorry guys, but we forgot to include some folders and files into the installation package. That's why you're getting an error when trying to add a custom mod truck to the application.

We'll fix this error with the next release of E2S, but until then - here's a quick fix:

Go to your E2S installation directory, and open the \data\trucks folder.
In there, create a folder named templates .

That should solve your problems, and you should be able to add mod trucks to ETS2 Studio.

Thank you all for reporting the bug, and sorry for any inconvenience.

It took us ages to complete it, but now it's here!

Please un-install any older versions before installing the new one.

Enjoy it! :)
