    Vehicle selection looks like this and the vehicles cant be used, because they lack the dependancies

    Wellp you need certain mods such as the ETK 1300 mod, the MAN mod etc., as you can see by the names of the no-image placeholders

    So I've finally had some time checking on what the update has changed, and it's quite a bit especially for the H-series skins. Therefore I'll try my best to work on it during study, a final result should be uploaded around the 22nd or earlier.
    I'm sorry for the inconvenience but studying in another city keeps me away from my PC which can run Beam, so testing the fixes won't happen that early.

    Progress is...well as slow as it could possibly be I guess. The reworks take a lot more time, the more complicated the skin is...which you could've already guessed ^^'
    This is the current state:
    upload_2022-1-9_19-24-23.png
    I'll perhaps release vehicle by vehicle because this'll stick as main task for a long ass while and that'd mean no updates until all skins would've been remade.
    I'll rework the H-Series in three major parts as it are about 40 skins: First 2 updates will contain both 10 remade skins, the third the final 20.
    With that said I will put the H-Series here and there between each vehicle, so for example when the ETK 800 is done I'll go onto the first 10 skins of the van and then continue with the citybus etc.

    So ye, stay tuned ^^

    Sooooooooooooooo this isn't dead, don't worry.
    Right now I'm contributing and working on another Beam mod, where I'm also improving modelling and texturing skills. It's a great side project and something else to work on.
    My finals are coming up soon, I've been and still work as project manager etc., so a lot is going on, but the development is still active, just in such a slow pace that I'd rather not make any hopes for soon-ish updates.

    That's about it, just bumping this out. Hope you're doing well, hope you're safe and healthy and I wish you a great day. :)

    Let's say...I'll be taking a break from skins for a while...and move to something much larger :3
    You can imagine this next update will take a bit. I won't be posting much so the result hits ya at once hehe. I'm a bit burned out with skins, but want to work on some stuff for sure, and yeah...I'll leave open, what exactly this next update will contain ^^

    So the new update dropped huh...shit xD

    This brings some downgrades to this mod. The EU light bar is high standard now, LEDs of the american one are highly detailed, apparently the rendering has been changed.

    Now what does this mean for this mod?


    The short answer is this mods' quality just dropped by 50%, mainly the light bars. I'll have to rework each and every one of 'em to get up to standard. Some newer things I have in repertoire, such as the new ambubox or other projects I've worked on had better LED textures and setup, so it's nothing new to me...hey that's nice ^^'

    The long answer...
    So with the EU light bar being up to 2021 standard mostly, if not 2022 in terms of setup and looks, the following things are influenced:

    City bus:
    • fire department config front and rear light bar are outdated
    ETK 800:
    • hazard flasher addon is unnecessary now
    • literally nearly all configs have the outdated light bar
    ETK 1300
    • state police (default mod main light bar) is outdated
    MAN
    • default light bar for all configs are outdated
    Van
    • fire department ambulance main light bar is outdated
    • fire deparment rapid response emergency doc (old) main and rear light bar are outdated
    • fire department command vehicle (old) front and rear light bar are outdated
    • ASB 1 ambulance main light bar is outdated

    All of the above is fixable, I can just easily replace the light bars.

    Now to the fun part...what has to be done further: Reworking about everything
    My light bars aren't up to standard anymore (if they were ever lol). Reworks are required for the following configs:

    City Bus:
    • Federal Police config: front flasher rework (LED texture improvements)
    ETK 800:
    • KdoW BNG Fire Dept. config: rework main light bar (add some things)
    • Federal Police config: rework main light bar (inner illuminating parts)
    • LNA config: main light bar (LED textures)
    ETK 1300:
    • update the KdoW BNG Fire Dept. config's main light bar to the updated LNA one, once it's done
    Hopper:
    • Federal Police config: main light bar (inner LED textures)
    Roamer:
    • see Hopper point
    • VRW BNG Fire Dept. config: main light bar (potentially rework inner textures)
    • Rework if not replace the NEF config light bar (that shit's old lmao)
    Van:
    • Replace most police light bars with the new one (get the super outdated files from Kemro finally out of the way)
    • rework the existing ambulance light bars (RTW DRK 2020(1) and (2)) with more detailed inner textures
    Vivace:
    • potentially rework innitial light bar jbeam and dae file to improve performance
    • rework that skin holy shit it looks bad compared to others

    That's about it I believe. This will be an extremely time consuming process, which I'm not able to pull off myself as of now.
    The next update will have some updated skins, some W.I.P. stuff I've been working on for fun, and the updates to the new light bar.
    Other than that I'll have to leave the rest of the light bars untouched until I find someone that can help me with that work load.

    My main focus has moved to in the previous post mentioned things. I'm in the middle of making it become real, and that itself will take a heckin lot of time, so unless my stuff breaks I won't be able to update it, simply because of a huge lack of time for modding atm :/

    Sorry for that. Once those projects are done, I'll hopefully have enough motivation and time to rework all the OG things here, or I'll find someone, who's willing to help me...guess we'll see, what the future brings ^^'


    Enjoy the update lads, the updated EU light bars will come next time I'm home in about 2 weeks :)

    Well there's been a change of plans due to the inaccuracy of the actual light bar, and some stuff that is running in the background. Once all is fixed, it'll be changed. I can't exactly tell when that's gonna happen, but it will for sure.

    Stay tuned! 2 out of 3 things are making great progress! :>

    Okay so some issue i've notice is that on the H-series ambulance is that some of the lights have missing textures on them (mainly the white ones) and the traffic advisor sign wont come up and there isnt a keybind for it at all. I hope these issue get fixed soon and i cant wait to see more from this skin pack!

    Ambulance:
    That's odd. Those work perfectly fine on my end. Have you tried clearing cache? If that ain't workin disable all mods except the skin pack, clear cache again, and check, if it still doesn't work.

    Traffic Advisor:
    Check, if there's a sign selected in the parts selector. You can unfold the TA via the U key, and activate it with the hazard flashers.

    It's one of the more outdated things in this pack. The TA of the fire dept. has actual lua, and at some point the police one will get it too :p

    I've looked in my keybinds settings and i havent found one to unfold the TA. Also the ADAC D-series configs needs updating as its using a diesel fuel tank but has a gasoline engine.

    EDIT: I had a mod conflicting with the TA and all other issue seem to be working now besides the d-series config

    Yeah I remember the D Series thing but forgot to add it to the list, thanks for pointing that out. Will be fixed in the next update :^)

    Mods that add new keybinds to the vanilla cars will overwrite others, except they had mine added for some odd reason, so as soon as you install a mod that adds new keybinds to the h series for example, it'll overwrite my defined TA bind :p

    Alrighty after the latest hotfix you can guess what I've been working on mainly before switching the EU light bar to the newer version :p
    Been providing some assistance and feedback here and there for it, and now it's time to switch the older ones to the newer ones.

    I'm also increasing the interval of being home to every week, as I'm studying in another city than I'm actually living.

    This is in this case of importance, because I'll actually rework some models whilst switching out the light bars, and should be able to make decent and fast progress on both the in post #50 mentioned projects and the older gen light bars. With that the next update should have a longer list of changes, but might take as long as just switching the light bars. I have to edit a few here and there to make em fit the position, for example there is no need for a front bus light bar that'll have rear flashers, changing out the signs etc.
    I have some decent references for light bars due to close contact to EMS/EMT organisations, police and fire departments, so I hope I can deliver results that are as realistic as possible.
    I'll also upload a few updated skins I was able to work on during my studying.

    Progress on post #50:
    • the model is basically done, it's now onto jbeaming and texturing
    • the sketch is being modelled by my good friend RenAzuma66 in order to assist me; until further notice still on hold
    • I've got me some people that'll help me with certain things on the EU van which will be the next bigger project I'll be working on separately from this mod

    Thanks for reading all this and cy'all in the next post ^^
    --- Post updated ---
    Also I guess Ima share these cuz why not ^^

    Front setup


    Some inside sneak peak


    Some organising :>

    I believe a first hotfix with a few light bar switches, reworks and W.I.P. stuff is going to be released on Monday. A few configs will be removed due to their age, but most will be updated.

    I have a few problems with the mod

    First of all there's a "einsatzfahrt feuerwehr" text in a police lightbar

    And also I can't set this sign up, when I press alt+shift+N nothing happens and the light bar stops blinking
