[SCR] Improved License Plates

This is a simple mod that replaces truck and trailer plates with their appropriate commercial motor vehicle variants, and corrects the serial formats of these plate series.

States Included
Arizona - Apportioned truck plate, and general serial format corrections
California - Apportioned truck plate, permanent trailer plate, and general serial format corrections
Nevada - Apportioned truck plate, permanent trailer plate, and general serial format corrections; extended passenger plates to include recent serial formats

Special Thanks
Art - Reference photo for current-issue California Apportioned plate

What this mod doesn't do
This mod doesn't increase the resolution of the license plates. There are three reasons for this: First, it would require reconfiguring the UI template that generates them (doable, but obnoxious). Second, it would require remaking the font template (doable, but very time consuming). Lastly, and most importantly, each increase in texture size would quadruple the amount of texture memory used by license plates.

Like my work?
Perhaps you'd like to buy me a coffee or a pint. ;)

When will this mod be updated for New Mexico?

Just to clarify the scope of this mod: I'll be covering license plates for the states included in the game (and DLC's) as they are added. It helps me pace it so that I'm not rushing things. I'll definitely be doing Ontario when the time comes; That's where I'm from, after all.

That said, if I run out of things to do (not likely) and if there's enough interest from map mod authors, I may consider expediting other states, provinces, etc. Just keep in mind that my primary focus is on my truck and trailer mods. Everything else is gravy and/or born of obsessive-compulsive 'necessity'. :P

@ Pfc. Sharp {Marines CA} I doubt u'll see our plates in the game any time soon. Once they release the rest of the US i heard online they were also going to do Mexico & Canada since there is map mods that add that.

@TheGamer_500 This is American Truck Simulator, not USA Truck Simulator. Ontario is part of the Americas.

@Pfc. Sgarp {Marines CA.} But this is AMERICAN Truck Simulator. Not NORTH AMERICAN Truck Simulator.

Any chance for a Black background yellow letter version for California? They used to be common in the 60's early 70s and are now making a comebback.

Is there a way you could put the car license plate on the Skoda Suburb?

BasherKid: Read the description again and look closely at the Arizona truck plate. It's the only one with a different base from the passenger plate afaik. The next update to this has the text colour corrected for AZ. I'm still working on a way to fix the vertical alignment.

Will you add Arizona?
