MAN Euro6 Project

Over the last few weeks I've been working really hard to learn a few new things with modding, and I decided that last night I was going to start a bit of a project, properly converting the MAN euro 6 :)

I know there's a load of them that have been done before, but I wanted to do it myself, and do it properly! The pictures below shows how it is currently, I've done the AO texture on the cab (basically just a pre-game shadow so that when the truck is in a shadowed area on the map it doesn't look completely smooth) and converted over the chassis that it comes with, although I will be removing most of it, and reworking the SCS ones, to give a 4x2, 6x2, 6x4 and 6x2 tag option. The cab will also be fully templated and skinnable. All going well, and assuming SCS doesn't surprise us all and release their own before I finish, the truck will probably be released when finished ;)

The truck is still very much a WIP at the moment

In zmod3 :)

Looks a lot better than the default once in-game, Great work Max.
I am really not that much of a MAN fan but looking forward to trying it.

@Adi im with you on this one. I dont really like MAN trucks but I will give it a try. @Max I hope that the blinker sound will be faster because on the SCS Man its to slow and I dont like it.

Those pictures look great :) Let's see if you can finish it.
I think you can.
If it doesn't get finished I'll give up modding I think! In theory it shouldn't be difficult to do at all, have been practicing :P

Let's see how it goes but... Giving up modding is not such a good idea. Just saying though :watchingyou2:

I'm not normally a Man person, but I've been using one recently on my Swift Profile and its beginning to grow on me. Can not ait till this is released.

Now has all 3 default SCS chassis (this is the 4x2 shown below) and can be painted, need to remap the UV2 channel so that it can be given a livery rather than a solid colour next :)

Looks a lot better with the graphics settings turned up a little, but I couldn't be bothered for this picture!

This picture is pretty much the same, but did some work on the little detailed bits! More AO'ing of parts to come tomorrow hopefully :)
