TDE Update v4.6 (1.41-1.43) & v5.6 (1.44+) and associated line edits:

New mods:
TrackIR Driving Enhancements v4.6 (1.41-1.43) & v5.6 (1.44+)
TDE (Unsupported) v4.6 (1.41-1.43) & v5.6 (1.44+)
TDE (g_cam_window_block) v4.6 (1.41-1.43) & v5.6 (1.44+)

New - You can now get in/out of your truck via the passenger seat, works the same as the drivers seat. Whilst sat in the passenger seat, with your steering centered, look over your shoulder to look through the window and press 'Action', for outside. Note: You can't put your head out of the passenger window.
Why? Because one day you may be parked too close to an outside object, that would prevent exiting from the drivers side (without clipping through it), so you can now also exit from the passenger side, to refuel, unload etc...
Demo video available, see post 10.

Amended - 'Supported only' - Supplied 'CAM 3: Sleeper' presets amended to be positioned behind the passenger seat looking towards the drivers side rather than previously behind the drivers seat looking towards the passenger side.
You can now choose which side of the sleeper area you want to be positioned at, behind drivers seat looking towards passenger side or behind passenger seat looking towards drivers side, just by looking at the required location from either the drivers seat or the passengers seat and pressing 'Action'.
Note 1: This can be disabled if you'd rather always have your preferred sleeper location.
Note 2: Some trucks have transparent driver/passenger seats when viewed from the sleeper area. I've now included some 'CAM 3: ...sleeper top' presets, for those cabs that have a top bunk fitted as well, to avoid seeing the transparent seats.
Demo video available, see post 10.

Amended - Game default external cameras can now be used to drive, without having to disable TDE code via the menu.
CAM 1 - Keyboard 1 - Game standard driving view.
CAM 2 - Keyboard 2 - NEW - Passenger Seat. *** You cannot drive from this camera ***
CAM 3 - Keyboard 3 - NEW - Sleeper Area. *** You cannot drive from this camera ***
CAM 4 - Keyboard 4 - NEW - Outside truck. *** You cannot drive from this camera ***
CAM 5 - Keyboard 5 - Moved - Game standard chase view.
CAM 6 - Keyboard 6 - Moved - Game standard top down view.
CAM 7 - Keyboard 7 - Moved - Game standard roof view.
CAM 8 - Keyboard 8 - Game standard Drive-By view.
CAM 9 - Keyboard 9 - Moved - Game standard bumper view.
CAM 10 - ALT + Keyboard 9 - Moved - Game standard On-Wheel view.
Note 1: You can switch from (cam 1/2/3/4) to (cam 5/6/7/8/9/10) OR switch from (cam 5/6/7/8/9/10) to (cam 1).
Note 2: You can't switch from an external 'driving' camera (cam 5/6/7/8/9/10) to a 'non-driving' camera (cam 2/3/4) to avoid losing control of your truck.

Amended - "Important" - Outside presets have been renamed - These are the new defaults:
For ATS - Edit your config_local.cfg with the following:
uset g_eye_preset_5 "g:CAM 4 RHD ATS - Path Select"
uset g_eye_preset_4 "g:CAM 4 LHD ATS - Path Select"
OR
For ETS2 - Edit your config_local.cfg with the following:
uset g_eye_preset_5 "g:CAM 4 RHD ETS - Path Select"
uset g_eye_preset_4 "g:CAM 4 LHD ETS - Path Select"

TDE Update:

New - Automatic animated first person movement, when using 'Look Action' to change to/from driver seat, passenger seat, sleeper area or outside.
This new animated movement can be disabled if you prefer to instantly 'switch to' those positions, like previous TDE versions.

Note: To avoid the possible feeling of motion sickness, turn your real head back to the centre of your monitor once the animation starts (TrackIR is disabled during the animation), your real head will then be in the correct position when the animation stops and TrackIR is re-enabled.
Note: YAW remains active during driver to/from passenger seat as this is a single direction movement, therefore you shouldn't need to move your real head during the animation.

Your options are:
'Move to' mode (new TDE default):
Animated first person movement for enter/exit via driver side only.
Animated first person movement for driver seat to/from passenger seat.
Animated first person movement for driver seat to/from sleeper area.
OR
'Switch to' mode:
Instant enter/exit driver side or passenger side.
Instant change for driver seat to/from passenger seat.
Instant change for driver seat to/from sleeper area.
Instant change for passenger seat to/from sleeper area.
See post 6 'Optional edits' for more info.


New - Optional extra mod for changing the outside FOV.
The TDE default 'outside' FOV is 49, if that's too close for you then you can increase it to 55, 60, 65, 70 or 75 by adding one of the 'optional' mods.
See post 6 "Optional edits" for more details.


Due to the 60,000 character limit for forum posts, I've had to make a slight adjustment in the post order.
The required line edits are now spread across post 3 & 4.
The quick start guide is now post 5.


There's no changes required to the current mod versions, v4.6 & v5.6, only the new controls.sii file line edits are required for this update.

TDE Update:

New mods for game versions 1.44 to 149:
TrackIR Driving Enhancements v5.61 (1.44-1.49).scs
TDE (Unsupported) v5.61 (1.44-1.49).scs
TDE (g_cam_window_block) v5.61 (1.44-1.49).scs
The above are just renamed from the original v5.6 (1.44+) mods to better identify the game versions they will only work on.

New mods for game version 1.50+:
TrackIR Driving Enhancements v6.0 (1.50+).scs
TDE (Unsupported) v6.0 (1.50+).scs
TDE (g_cam_window_block) v6.0 (1.50+).scs
TDE - Cabin Camera Creator - v6.0 (1.50+).scs

And just to clarify v4.x, v5.x & v6.x of each TDE mod all share the same layout and functionality, choose the one that matches your game version.
Note 1: Using v4.x or v5.x with game version 1.50 will cause a "crash to desktop".
Note 2: All versions work with the current controls.sii line edits.

The new grey ui that comes with game version 1.50 makes TDE v6.0 menu look "washed out"...
Image
But it does function correctly. I may look into making it look better, if I can, at some point...

TDE Update:

Added first person 'walk' animation from outside truck to Service / Showroom, before you enter them.

Driver seat -> Centre real steering wheel -> Look over your shoulder to outside -> Press 'Action' -> Outside.
Look at the entrance door for the Service area or Showroom -> Press & hold 'Action' to walk staight to it, keeping your head still at all times.
Stop pressing 'Action' when you're near to the door, you'll then automatically enter Service / Showroom.
Exit Service / Showroom -> Look up to Driver door window -> Press 'Action' -> Driver seat.

Note: You can still sit in your driving seat and press 'activate', the way SCS want you to do it, if you prefer.

When outside your truck, the 'quick press clutch to step away' function now has a smooth motion instead of an instant jump.

All Demo videos - viewtopic.php?p=46613#p46613

The newly added Renault E-Tech truck to ETS2 version 1.50 isn't currently 'supported' by TDE. TDE functions work best when you own your own truck and this is a 'quick job' 'small distance' truck only.
However, it will work with TDE in 'unsupported' mode.
Note: When you finish a 'quick job' and you're outside the truck the game will auto change you to inside for your next job but the TDE code is still in outside mode... Press '1' to reset the TDE code back to the driving seat.

----------

There's no required mod update, just keep using the currently available ones, TDE v4.6, v5.61 or v6.0 to match your game version.

TDE Update:

NEW - TrackIR Driving Enhancements v6.1 (1.50+) mod:
"Renault E-Tech T" and "Scania S BEV" in ETS2 version 1.50 are now 'supported'.
Note: TDE features work best when you own your own trucks, SCS have set these trucks to 'quick jobs' only, due to having no charging points within the game world.
Minor improvement to the way the TDE menu looks.

NEW - TDE (Unsupported) v6.1 (1.50+) & TDE (g_cam_window_block) v6.1 (1.50+):
Minor improvement to the way these TDE menus look.

NEW - TDE Optional outside FOV change - v1.1 mod - "Renault E-Tech T" & "Scania S BEV" are now 'supported'.

Minor fix, within line edits, for first person 'walk' animation from outside truck to Service / Showroom, where looking up would have caused a jump back to outside the drivers door before entering Service / Showroom.
Note: The 'walk' animation is currently disabled when using the optional outside preset 'Always Face Truck'. However, pressing 'Action' (for +1 second) and releasing will still enter Service / Showroom or just press your 'activate' button.

As always, the required line edits are the same for all current TDE versions, TDE v4.6 (1.41-1.43), v5.61 (1.44-1.49) or v6.1 (1.50+).
