[WIP]Used Standalone Vanilla Trucks

Post by Arayas » May 26th, 2020, 10:08 am

(I know there is a mod for used trucks...but i think that mod replaces the vanilla trucks and if you get that in a service you can make it like new. No. This is not about that.)
I know a little bit about small trucking companies insides and those companies have no new truck or trailer. All is bought second hand and fixed with used parts, except where a new one is the only option.
my goal:
-All vanilla trucks cloned as standalone, all items unlocked from level 0. You need money.
-all you can fix/upgrade on them is from vehicle dismantling workshops, small prices than new but also lower performance. Tires can be bought new, but not the rims.
-some accesories will have dirt or rust or bad colour on them.
-engine, transmission, will have less torque, less traction power and will use more fuel
-paint will be different than new trucks, more rust, old bad decals from previous users.
-proper used truck milleage

A few used trailers will be added also. Old decals and visible cover fixes will be on them.

This mod will be useful with my WIP Economy mod.
I discovered long time ago SCS gives you 2000 euro to deliver a thing 150km. That's a fairy tale. The new fees are 3 digits. Of course, the cargo is split in categories and some difficult one will still bring you more money than ususal ones.
The bank will not chase you with the bag of money, end even so, you must do your math before touching the cake. :laugh1:

Any sugestion well received.

Brilliant news! In my opinion the game has always really needed second hand trucks and trailers and more realistic earnings. :yahoo: :heart: :dance3:

Has snarled and licked its tongues at me
And bared its fangs as well

Great idea Arayas at last we are nearer to some realistic haulage rates instead of the ridiculously inflated rates that scs use this will certainly make the game a lot more interesting will be looking forward to this addition. :good2: :good2:
