[SCR] Improved License Plates

Subscribed

Description
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
New Mexico - Apportioned truck plate, permanent freight trailer plate, with appropriate serial formats for each

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.

Does this mod work for 1.37

Smarty: Sorry for the late reply. Here's the log https://pastebin.com/FUku9X6s

I've done an interim fix, but the OR trailer plates still aren't showing the vertical Hx prefixes properly. I did, however, notice that the LP folder in the C2C mod has renamed the states that have had plate updates in 1.36 to allow the sim to override the defs, yet before I modified them, the plates still keep showing up with the default passenger baseplates. Oh, and as an side, now that ATS has those different plate categories, it should be easier to tackle the C2C states' differing formats for each category.

Doing some future-proofing...

Guess who's caught up to the SCS map DLCs and has two thumbs... This guy!

Washington and Utah are now covered with custom fonts and various format/artwork improvements – Enjoy!

Aurum: I'll be able to have a look later tonight when I get home. Any chance you could post a game log on pastebin by then?

Can't seem to get the plates to work properly, and I've got the mod at the very top of the priority list (I'm also running C2C, but got the plates above C2C on the list). Was working before, but now it's not. Help!
