TrailerVariation Loader

In 1 collection by Acc3ss Violation

Allows the use of variations for custom vehicle assets, like truck trailers and cargo wagons. Think empty vs. loaded log trucks. This mod is required for end users (and asset creators) that want to use custom assets using this feature.

Submesh variation masks are a way to use different submeshes for different cargo loads, be it full or empty. You can see this in action in game on the cargo train since the Industries patch. Unfortunately the game doesn't support custom assets that use these masks: they simply don't get saved or loaded, leading to all submeshes appearing at once.

For end users
If an asset lists this as a requirement, just sub to this and the asset will work.

For asset creators
Assets saved with Extended Asset Editor will automatically be set up correctly for use with this mod as of version 0.4.10, so no need to run scripts to configure them for use with this mod. Just edit the submeshes' variation masks, save them (with that mod's save button!) and they will work with this mod!
NOTE: You CAN NOT use things like the additive shader on any submesh that has a non-zero variation mask! If the mask is 0 you're fine though.

Credits and stuff
Based on Ronyx69's mods like Additive Shader

@Wingnut This mod only allows loading of extra data needed by some assets to make use of the game's own trailer variation system which allows for different models for different cargo.

Random Train Trailers gives way more control over trains than the game's normal system, but can also use the trailer variations that this mod loads.

What is the difference between this mod and the random train trailer mod?

@Capri-Sun This mod doesn't do anything like that, it is only to allow loading of trailer variations in custom assets.
If you want to change the default trains in your city with workshop/asset trains I recommend the Advanced Vehicle Options mod

That wouldn't be authentic. Trucks seldom ride around without a trailer whether the trailer is empty or not.

I love how it adds new types of train trailers :D
