Description about Mack Anthem - Fixed v1.1.1 for Ats:
Here's the fixed version of Franck Peru's Mack Anthem.
I have tested it in ATS 1.32 - you can try it with 1.31 but I can't guarantee it will work.
For the first release I only fixed some major issues, there is still a lot of things I would like to
fix but that will take some time. I'm sharing the mod with you now so you can already use the truck while
I can work one the next version. Since the baked model error is fixed it should consume less fps but that's the only optimisation I did so far.
If your FPS is low, remember to remove hood mirros and side mirror.
Also make sure that you have g_baked_vehicle set to 1 and g_phys_mirrors set to 0. I separated
the AI truck from the mod so you can decide if you want it or not.
The AI truck has around 270k triangles no matter what LOD so it can hit your FPS as well.
Before you activate this mod, load your profile with the old mod enabled and sell the truck.
Then disable old mod, activate this one and buy the truck again.
New version 1.1.1 (quick fix)
- Fixed exterior sounds gone after changing the engine
Fixed all errors and warnings (one warning left: <WARNING> [resource_task] Default temporary buffer is insufficient while reading '/vehicle/truck/mack_anthem_2018/truck.pmg' with size 34167068 - that's becase the model is so big, even though I moved cabin mesh to a separate model),
Removed all unused files,
Removed duplicate textures and moved all textures to one folder,
Fixed windows (exterior and interior),
Removed that greenish tint from headlights,
Fixed interior position to match truck exterior (the interior was moved to the back and down),
Fixed interior camera position and rotation,
Fixed some animations (there are still wipers to fix and some switches to add),
Adjusted the center of steering wheels so they turn less wobbly,
Fixed position of steering column sticks,
Fixed scale of the dash computer,
Changed some materials so that steering column stick and parking brake knobs no longer light up,
Removed two mDrive transissions as they have same ratios as HD versions - so there was no difference in game,
Fixed gear ratios of mDrive HD transmissions (some of them were wrong),
Fixed UV mapping artifacts on the edge between hood and fenders,
Remade all cabin colliders to better match the model (Peru used kenworth t680 colliders),
Fixed advanced coupling colliders in all chassis variants,
Changed 5th wheel angle and added missing texture to it,
Replaced air noises with stock ones (there was like one noise repeating all the time - very annoying),
Added truck browser icon,
Changed names of cabins to real ones.
Some changes to the chassis variants (in the future version I plan to leave only one wheel base as the real truck has no option to change it (it has shorter wheel base for day cab - but the mod has no day cab :))
