Wheel Pack Trailer Wheels

By: Smarty

This article is a full listing of the trailer wheels included in Smarty's Wheel Pack, plus full instructions on how to integrate them with your trailer mods.

Usage

Using wheels from the Wheel Pack in your trailer mods is probably different from from anything you're used to. First and foremost there is no need to include the core models or definitions from my wheels in your mod. In fact, I actively discourage it to prevent conflicts and needless compatibility updates for both you and me. The whole purpose of this system is to make things easy for you, me, and especially our users in the long term!

What You Do:

For each vehicle_wheel_accessory unit in each trailer definition, replace the data_path attribute with an include pointing to a .sui file unique to your mod. For example:

vehicle_wheel_accessory: .your.trailer.twheel0
{
@include "your_trailer/wheel_accessory.sui"
}

The .sui file will include the data_path attribute for the wheel accessory. In your mod, you should point this to one of the base game wheels or, optionally, one that you include in your mod. The important part is that it should be one that is present without the Wheel Pack being present. This way your mod doesn't need to depend on mine, but can still make use of it when it's present. So your wheel_accessory.sui should look something like this:

data_path: "/def/vehicle/t_wheel/single.sii"

That's basically all you have to do, other than let me know that you've set up your mod for the Wheel Pack and:

  • Where your .sui's are.
  • Which wheels you want to correspond to which .sui's. A full listing of your options appears in the sections below!
  • What colour you want them to be (if applicable).

What I do:

In the next minor update of the Wheel Pack, I add .sui files with the same path/name as yours which set the data_path to the appropriate wheel definitions and add the paint_color attribute if applicable. The game always uses the last version of a file to be loaded, so the .sui's in the Wheel Pack are used instead of the ones in your mod. Magic!
