I am trying to make some new mods for LS11, I would like to make a telehandler and round baler that both use the original scripts, as I am happy with how they work, they should be bug free and I have no scripting experience myself.

My problem is that I am unable to find the specialization types to put in the modDesc, LS09 had vehicleTypes.xml, and storeItems.xml files in the data folder which this information is available in, but I don't see that LS11 has these files, possibly because of the new buying system for mods?

It would be ideal if someone knows what I have to write for these modDescs, so I can continue with these mods,

Hi Sam,

Face wrote something about these specializations :

You can see the old updated one and the new one.
With the old "vehicleTypes.xml" you can easely build your modDesc file. ;)

Many thanks for that Bayn, that has helped a lot, so I take it you would have to use mousecontrols, and front loader for the telehandler? and does the baler type work for round and square balers?

I will give it a go when I have some time for modding next.

You need to use all the specializations needed to make the mod useful :

- steerable
- motorized
- frontloader
- animatedVehicle ( Maybe for the movements ? )
- cylindered ( for the hydraulics, if it has been made that way ( check the .xml file ;)) )
- mouseControlsVehicle

Yes, the "baler" type is for both baler. ( with attachable, etc... ;) ).
Maybe some mods request more than I wrote. If it's the case, correct me if I'm wrong.

Edit : I'm not sure I understood all you said : do you want to add your own script or just use original one ? If you want to use your own, just do as described. If you want to use the original script, just put "telehandler" in your vehicleType ( in the .xml file ) and that's all you need. ;)
