4 Truck accessory create custom g sii.jpg Inside /02_truck_accessory/mod_accessory/def/vehicle/truck/renault_magnum/accessory/f_grill create file called custom_g.sii which will contain definition of the grill.

And paste there the following example definition:

SiiNunit
{
accessory_addon_data : unit.name
{
    name: "My front grill"
    price: 1
    unlock: 0
    icon: "f_grill_09"
    exterior_model: "model path"
}
}

And keep the file opened.

4 Truck accessory definition description.jpg Now change definition as you want:
  1. "unit.name" must be set to some unique value - each component divided by dot can have max 12 characters. For example the good name will be custom.amazing.renault.f_grill
  2. The name is the name of the accessory in truck configuration screen. You can call it in any way.
  3. The price is a price of your accessory in game base currency (€ for ETS2, $ for ATS).
  4. The level when the accessory is unlocked. If zero it will be unlocked immediately on game start.
  5. The icon is a image that is displayed in truck configuration screen. We will leave the image at the moment as f_grill_09.
  6. The exterior_model is a model of the grill. It must a path to the .pmd file you will get after converting the data. So for this it will be: "/vehicle/truck/upgrade/frontgrill/renault_magnum_2009/custom_grill.pmd".
