This was the bread and butter of E2S: Standalone trailers tool and Truck Skin tool. Initial version had only the trailers tool and only 2 trailers at that. That's actually why I made E2S: I was not happy with 'replacement' trailer skins as I believe mods should add content and not replace it. On the other hand, making standalone trailers was a painstaking process.
|Two main project options (v.0.4)|
|Trailer tool: Trailer type selection|
|Trailer tool: Skin selection|
|Trailer tool: Cargo editor|
|Trailer tool: Cargo selection|
|Truck skin tool - truck selection|
|Truck skin tool - skin image selection|
|Truck skin tool - properties|
|Truck skin tool - workshop icon|
First E2S was built using Visual Studio and was coded in C#. All of the UI was done in Windows Forms, and as the title says - it was Windows only. We used some external libraries to convert PNG to DDS, zip/unzip files and such. Also, we used SCS Software's own tools (extractor), and some base files for the trailers.
Next post will deal with the Mods Studio version that most of you know and have used for a long time, and after that, we'll get into the under the hood things of the upcoming Mods Studio 2.0.
So, folks, stay tuned!
