Documentation/Engine/Game data/Player trucks definitions

Player truck definitions can be thought of in two components:

-Think of these as a set of building blocks from which the truck can be built; They don't assemble themselves!
-Think of them as the instructions for the game to assemble the building blocks (data definitions) into a vehicle when it is first loaded.

Vehicle Parts Definitions

Each truck is configured in its own folder (e.g. "<brand.truck>" in tree view below) containing:

  1. SII file: data.sii - defining: truck info, cameras, fallback rules for parts of the truck and required accessories. There is 8 mandatory fallback rules: chassis, cabin, interior, engine, transmission, f_wheel (or f_tire), r_wheel (or r_tire), paint_job and head_light.
  2. Subfolders: (chassis, cabin, interior, engine, transmission, paint_job, head_light, sound) - defining different parts and accessories of the truck. First 7 folders are needed because of mandatory fallback rules and sound folder is needed for truck mandatory sounds definitions.
  3. Optional folder: accessory - defining all possible accessories for the truck that user can install in game Upgrade Shop. This folder holds another level of sub folders for separating different accessory types that player can install on the truck and will be listed in Upgrade Shop once player selects proper accessory type. Moreover names of subfolders directly correspond to the names of model locators truck 3D model has to have for ability of having that types of accessories enabled in the game.

Vehicle Configurations

There are three types of player truck configurations, depending on their use in the game:

  1. Dealers inside folder: "/def/vehicle/truck_dealer/" (if truck has RHD variant also in UK dealers folder: "/def/vehicle/truck_dealer_uk/").
  2. Desktop preview inside folder: "/def/vehicle/truck_desktop/" (if truck has RHD variant also in UK dealers folder: "/def/vehicle/truck_desktop_uk/").
  3. (Optional) Quick Jobs trucks inside folder: "/def/vehicle/truck_company/" (if truck has RHD variant also in UK dealers folder: "/def/vehicle/truck_company_uk/").
