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.

Instructions


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 "plain.dds" file.

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

/vehicle/trailer_eu/cis_fuel/textures/plain.dds

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

/vehicle/trailer_eu/cocacola/textures/plain.dds 

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.


Apologies


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.
