MULTIPLE TRAILERS IN TRAFFIC 1.47
Where we are now:
Version v1.47.1 for ETS2 v1.47
Extra single gas tankers.
Extra single livestock trailers. Default cargo now cows; ones with piggies in ’em won’t appear in Israel or predominantly Muslim countries. That’s how woke we are.
General tweakage to traffic rules for v1.47.
New mod – double Feldbinder EUT32 silos.
New mod – trucks from Jazzycat’s BDF traffic pack with dollies & trailers from Jazzycat’s Painted Truck and Trailers & Cargo mods. Referred to as “LCV” for want of a more snappy abbreviation.
v1.47.1 fixes errors with SCS box trailers caused by copying files from ATS without due care or attention.
Where it came from:
Someone anonymous did one for earlier versions of both games but it didn’t get updated after an SCS update. It was credited to Jazzycat but although it used his truck models it never appeared on his web site, so I assume his participation was without his knowledge. This one is based on what the original did, but only uses SCS models, has been kept more or less up to date and has had extra bits added to it.
What it does:
Adds drawbar double, HCT double and B-Double trailers in ETS2 traffic. At least, that was the initial scope. It has, like Topsy, just growed.
What’s in the box:
ETS2 Double Trailers In Traffic Base
Curtainsiders, dryvans, insulated trailers and reefers in drawbar double, B-double and HCT versions.
B-double, drawbar double and HCT gooseneck trailers with container and tank cargo.
Double and HCT silo trailers.
Versions of all SCS traffic trucks to pull them with.
No charging cable.
ETS2 Extra Double Trailers In Traffic
SCS flatbed double trailers with assorted cargo.
SCS log double trailers also with assorted cargo.
This is packaged as a separate mod because of the licence plate issue – see below.

And the same thing for Jazzycat’s doubles (if using Jazzy’s Trailers & Cargo Pack).
ETS2 Jazzycat Doubles
Traffic versions of the double trailers Jazzycat’s Trailers & Cargo mod.
REQUIRES JAZZYCAT’S TRAILERS & CARGO MOD AND THE ETS2 DOUBLE TRAILERS IN TRAFFIC MOD.
NEW!!1! – Painted LCV Traffic Pack by Jazzycat
Trucks from Jazzycat’s Painted BDF Traffic Pack with dollies & trailers from Jazzycat Painted Truck Traffic & Trailers And Cargo Packs, viz.
Mercedes Actros trucks with 20′ containers, towing with 2×20′, 40′ and 45′ container trailers. Only seven trucks, alas, though ontainer skins in the same format are not difficult to find. Including them would require changing Jazzycat’s .pmd file so this has been left as an Exercise for the Reader.
Variety of curtainsider, dryvan and reefer trucks with matching trailers, albeit that some companies have different ideas about what constitutes a “matching” paint job.
REQUIRES JAZZYCAT’S PAINTED BDF, PAINTED TRUCK, and TRAILERS & CARGO MODS AND THE ETS2 DOUBLE TRAILERS IN TRAFFIC BASE MOD. Originally built using BDF v13.7, Painted Truck v17.0 and Trailers & Cargo v11.4 so may not work properly with older versions of these mods. I’d advise using v1.47-specific versions, though, as I believe there were issues with .mat files in the older versions following the update.
This one might not get updated very often because matching trucks and trailers gives me a headache, thought a degree of automation is underway.
ETS2 Double Trucks For CIP Sound Mod
SCS & Jazzycat trucks from these mods adapted to use CIP’s improved sound mod.
REQUIRES ETS2 DOUBLE TRAILERS IN TRAFFIC BASE MOD AND MUST BE PLACED ABOVE IT (AND THE OVERSIZE TRAILERS/LCV MODS IF INSTALLED) IN THE MOD MANAGER.
ETS2 Low Spawn Frequency Trailers
If you reckon you’re seeing too many of the trailers in this package try putting this mod above all the other trailer mods.
ETS2 High Spawn Frequency Trailers
If you reckon you’re not seeing enough of the trailers in this package try putting this mod above all the other trailer mods.
Some trailers can arrive before their wheels do. If you get this, open your config.cfg file in a text editor and change:
CODE: SELECT ALL
uset g_lod_factor_traffic “1”
CODE: SELECT ALL
uset g_lod_factor_traffic “5”
The game sometimes sets the graphics mode back to “1970s calculator” after a crash, so keep a backup copy of your config.cfg file handy.
Some trailer skins – both from SCS and other modders – are not optimised for the short trailers (drawbar double rear/B-Double front), so writing and/or logos fall off one end.
The trailers have an occasional tendency to tie themselves in knots and/or sink into the road surface.
The trailers appear on AI-only roads even in countries where they’re not supposed to be. I don’t think the game’s country rules are applied to these roads.
Disembodied licence plates on flatbed, gooseneck and log double trailers, like wot used to happen with the HCT dollies before we got a new one. These trailers are all in the Extra Double Trailers mod so if they annoy you too much just uninstall the mod – other mods in the package will be unaffected.
The rear lights of some trailers derived from owned ones are rather ineffective.
The dollies attached to the Mercedes Antos trucks in the LCV may look a bit odd, becase the Ringfeder on the trucks is in a different place – higher and further back – from the other trucks. Hence they use the ATS dolly with smaller wheels, otherwise the front dolly wheels would be completely off the ground.
See the description text files in the mod for the countries/regions in which the trailers appear, and how to make them appear everywhere if that’s what you want.
If you are using cipinho’s traffic density mod then it must go ABOVE the double trailers mod in the mod manager. The doubles MIGHT work with other traffic density mods but I haven’t tried them.
You are actively encouraged to take these mods apart to see how they work and put your own trucks and trailers in it.
