    Bump, but also the mod is a cousin the the euro truck mod, so any sounds and parts would be easy to substitute in some regards. Also that is what I plan on doing to try and improve the mod.

    See if you can speak to @Jalkku and get his permission before releasing the updated version.

    That is what i plan on doing, except he hasn't been active for a long time, so long in fact that the wheels on the truck are the old Hubwheels!

    Honestly I'm surprised that the mod still works! It hasn't been updated since like 2017.

    I have done more digging and have found that the brakes are in the suspension jbeam files, and there is no wheeldata file. So I'm also surprised, but i give credit to the author for being able to build it in a way which would work for future versions.

    I sincerely prefer the original one because it's easy to download, more parts and more engine sounds makes no difference, also it brings me memories of the old beamng.

    Yes and there will always be old versions of the mod to download, but my intention is to maintain the legacy of this mod by making it run with the newest versions as the creator probably intended.

    Progress has been slow recently with very little changes made over the past week, but here it is. Changes: Horn, blinker stock sound, and parking brake lever sound.

    I am very new to this game, and noticed that this mod is at least 4 years old by now (2021), so its likely I am missing a step, and will struggle with troubleshooting.

    In trying to use the 8x8 trucks with their trailers (everything in the mod), I found that as soon as the coupler points (pink glowing spheres) make contact, I hear a banging sound as if the vehicle collided with something, and then the trailer's connection point falls to the ground. In short, the coupler doesn't work. I have only tried using the coupler by pressing L. I am not aware of what the other buttons do. Doing the same thing on the default vehicles works perfectly.

    As you said the mod is 4 years old, so not everything will still work in it. This one is better:
    https://www.beamng.com/threads/somewhat-outdated-man-tgs-euro-6.58752/
    It has a version almost exactly like in this mod.
