Thank you very much! *:D Being part of this community and seeing my stuff used is the best reward, but a little money helps me justify spending alot of time on creating assets. *;)

Good point with those trucks and there's prob even more of a demand after Shroomblaze's trucks seemed somehow connected to flickering vehicles. :)

I'll second American trucks if it means that I don't have to do them! I was planning on creating some for at least my containers before you began this project, so let me know if you need or want any help!

+1 for American style big rigs, I'd love to see you two come up with some amazing things together, and the best part of all, twice as fast! *:thumb:

It's always a pleasure seeing your work

@bsquiklehausen I had a feeling American trucks would make more sense for yours. I think I'm good with the model - got a nice bunch of pics to work from. I gotta say though they're huge! Is it typical for them to have those larger sleeping quarters behind the cabin? I kinda feel for the European drivers - there's a big difference in space that's for sure! :P (ofc the best comparison pic I could find quick was from the truck simulator games xD )

For the European trucks I'll prob do some tweeks to the Scania truck by Onion_Jack. Lower the tris a bit (can get it to 1k just fine) and add some detail to the texture (the trucks around here usually have a bit of design on them - mostly lines and some text - but I rarely see any unmarked ones)

Wow, they are just great.

Any chance you will also make some intermodal trailers? Could be DFDS, DSV, Wetron, BAS and so on. Would realy like them, just as tanktainers. Well I should learn how to do it myself lol.

Keep up the good work!

Thank you! ^^ I'm not sure what you mean, could you perhaps grab some pictures of examples? I won't be doing any real world brands though - I prefer it when the game has it's own and at least for now I don't plan on adding more container brands. *:)

I got some work done on an American truck. Far from done, but at least the overall shape feels right. :P Gotta add a few more parts and then get rid of extra tris. Atm it's 1.4k but I'm hoping I can get it closer to 1k.

Intermodal trailers are trailers which can be transported on a train as well. Nowadays you will see trains with containers and trailers coming by very often.

DFDS

Wetron

The yellow plates on the trailer are for the reachstackers or cranes to load and unload. Actually it are just trailers, but they have the plated and an other framework. I wish I could do them myself but I have no idea how.

I do plan on trains with these containers on, so that's just a matter of time. :) Once I'm done with the trucks, trains and container stacks I'll move on to another project though. 

If you're interested in trying your hand at making stuff, then there's always this heavy truck template you could start with. You could totally make the DFDS trailer from this without needing to model - it will just be texture work. :)

Thanks for the tip, I'll start reading into it.

I'm looking forward to your new project :)

Looking good so far, are there any plans on making small container trucks? Similar to http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=782886986 or https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=643229471 or maybe even other interesting varieties like http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=754279349.

I prefer using big trucks as props and smaller trucks for the actual logistics .. Wish there was a mod to set which truck model is used by each industry and commercial and then assign bigger trucks just for export or something.

@accapulco Totally! I'm not sure if it'll be right after the other container projects or if I'll have a little break from containers and work on some other assets. It depends on how bored I am from importing container assets. :P But they're definately on my to-do list. :)

I love the idea of CSL-specific brands. :)

Could I make a request? I love that brick fence you made for your old factories. I find myself using it for more than just that. It's a really nice decorative brick/iron fence for putting out front of a house, or around an outdoor dining area.

Could you make longer sections? Like 4x and 8x?

I might be boring here, but I prefer real brands in-game. I strive for realism in my cities, there are more buildings plopped by me, than grown randomly in my cities. So real brands of various things is what I want in my cities.

Thank you very much guys - glad you enjoy them! :) 

@Matthias King I'll note that down - it shouldn't be hard to do, I just gotta get to it. But I like having quick little things to do here and there as a break, and this will fit just fine as that. :)

@pauliaxz Not boring, just some different preferences. You're definately not alone in prefering real brands. :) I use both in my cities, though I find the made up ones more fun. Little references, play on words and tributes make them more interesting to me, and they give me a sense of us as a community having created something unique together. But that's just me. :D 

I just released the large stacks today, so if you have a large empty area to fill up, grab them and the Prop Line Tool and you're done in a minute. ;) Find them all here. I can finally start to see the end of Project Containers - railcars and stacks for the 20ft are next. At some point also truck trailers for the 20ft. I think I'll be done with containers before the end of the month. ^^

@Avanya that's great to hear. I look forward to that.

@pauliaxzI'm the same way, though I do use some of the CS brands, especially these containers because they just look so amazing. Seriously, @Avanyayou've outdone yourself, though we've all come to expect nothing less.

In case you missed them I released my containers on @Tim The Terrible's container car model here. Since then I've gotten them ready for trains and found an engine to use (recolor, not a new model by me), but I've run into a problem. :( Seems the Asset Vehicle Editor mod is not working - at least I can't get it to save, which means only one trailer variation. Do any of you guys have an idea for what to do? With all the trailers releasing a train with varying trailers is kind of a must, so I'm hoping there's another way or another mod to let me do this.

I haven't used it in a while, but I remember it can behave weird. One thing I remembered is that you get one chance to save the train. If you change anything after saving, it will result in a train with only Trailer0's (first trailer). So my tip: set everything in the default UI (Color Variations, Number of Trailers etc.) then do all the AVE settings, and finish by saving with the AVE Save button. Made a mistake? Start all over again (from choosing template onward)

Ty, I'll try that and see if it wants to play along a little at least.

Edit: No luck sadly. Doesn't matter if it's from a fresh load of the game or not. It simply doesn't save at all. So sad. :( (Also I realized I messed up my oil trains since I had forgotten all about needing the mod to save)

Take a look at the Extended Asset Editor mod, which has its own save button. That's been working for me lately.

Uh, I had missed that completely! Thank you! That mod's save works :D

in the comments on Asset Vehicle Editor someone has commented a link to an updated version of the mod (not the original author - which is why it wasn't updated properly) I downloaded it and it seems to work :)

Wow, I must have been a little tired yesterday! xD There was both a fixed version and a link to the mod bsquiklehausen mentioned. Trains incoming later today/tonight. :D

Trains released and I'm really looking forward to doing some non-container things again. :D Love all the containers, but it does get a little boring looking at the same stuff this long. ;)

      I've just released my first assets and I decided to create a post not because there is much to see, but rather because as an inexperienced modeler it will be a good place to collect feedback and ask for advice. (I would like to keep the forum clean from my numerous questions!)
      So my project is a modular medieval wall that is currently made out of 7 parts of a 6m high set. This is the short version, which is suitable for town walls, but a 12m set is planned. I might also do a 9m version but don't quote me on that.
      The wall parts are based on the great "stone wall" template of Sparks, so they can be placed freely and conform to terrain. I tried to make their stats balanced in terms of entertainment value. I wanted the towers to avoid flattening the terrain and as I'm not good with playing with building's properties, I went with a water tower template without stats. It's not the most convenient but it works. It's also worth noting that the assets only really work well with an anarchy mod (especially the gates that I made without roads for more freedom).
      Here is the link to the collection: http://steamcommunity.com/workshop/filedetails/?id=718095394
      New short pieces and the tall set are on the way, but probably not before the end of July. You can leave suggestions or feedback so that I can improve my future assets!

      So I was recently looking at some Japan driving videos and got inspired to make some highway pillars.
      I'm planning to make an entire set of various types of pillars in this style, even a 6cell over-canal pillar. (if it goes okay)
      Tell me what you think about my first attempt, I need to nail the style and the details before I start making other variations.
      Constructive criticism welcome, also any ideas.
      By the way, do pillars have LODs like regular buildings? I should just make it just the pillar, without the small details - pipe, wires, supports.
      Not sure when they're going to be done and available.
