Cistern trailers hotfix for 0.5.6

We have narrowed down the issue with the fuel cistern trailer and produced a data hot-fix for ETS 2 Studio 0.5.6.
In other words, this is not a version increase but a download for those who are making standalone trailers based on the Fuel Cistern trailer.


Grab the hot-fix here:

Find your ETS 2 Studio 0.5.6 installation folder...

Click to enlarge:
This start-menu entry will only be there if you installed ETS 2 Studio with the start menu option.

Extract the contents of the archive into your ETS 2 Studio 0.5.6 folder, replacing all files and folder it asks for. (If it doesn't ask for replacement then you didn't extract the "data" folder from the archive to the root folder of ETS 2 Studio 0.5.6)

Done, from this point onward ETS 2 Studio will not create Fuel Cistern trailers with broken back lights and/or errors in the game log.

For the advanced

If you want to update your existing Fuel Cistern stand alone trailers, extract the two files (plain.tobj and plain1.tobj) to a folder and use ETS 2 Studio's TOBJ editor (Tools->TOBJ Editor) and set the path to your trailers "" file.

Only adding the internal trailer name to the path is necessary, for example...


If your trailer was named "cocacola" internally (shows in the path of the mod) then the path to "" file would be...


Notice how "cis_fuel" is changed to "cocacola"...?
Done, place those two .tobj files in your mod archive, replacing those in place from before. That mod is now repaired.


We are sorry for any inconvenience this has caused, this wasn't something that is easily found. Thanks to all that reported the issue so we caught it now.
This will be fixed for good in the next version of ETS 2 Studio.

New version (0.5.6) is out, and a little teaser (0.6)...

Even though we're working hard on the 0.6 version, it's just not ready to be released yet. And, since there's a new truck in ETS2, we had to release one more 'intermediate' version.

So, without further ado:

Version 0.5.6 is out.
New features in V0.5.6:
  • Scania Streamline support in the truck skin generator tool
  • Workshop icon overlay option
  • Fixed cargo generator file access bug (hopefully)
  • Fixed dds image load/save bug (hopefully)
  • A lot of other bug fixes
Here's a couple of screenies, so you can see what I'm talking about:

And, here's a couple of teaser images of the upcoming 0.6 release:

Looking good, ha? :)
