Simple engine mod

Mods Studio 2 version: 2019.04 or newer

Written on: August 2nd, 2019

To create an engine mod, you'll have to enter some values into the Mods Studio 2 editor. Here's an overview of all values and what they do:

1. Truck

Truck

By setting the truck variable, you designate what truck your new engine will be for. This mod offers a selection of all truck types.

2. Basic

Engine Internal Name

This can be whatever you like, just make sure you follow the rules for internal names.

Engine Name

This is whatever you want. User will see this in the workshop above the engine icon.

Engine Price

How much this engine costs in the workshop.

Unlock At Level

This defines at what in-game level the player needs to be to be able to equip this engine to their truck.

Engine Overrides

Optional: Here you can specify what parts/configurations this engine forces upon selection. For instance, when a Volvo (2012) 16 litre engine is selected, it forces the FH16 (gray) grill instead of the black one. Also, it changes the badges on the truck cab. Similarly, Scania trucks have different grill colors and badges corresponding to V8 and non-V8 engines.
