When I import a Traffic Vehicle, no matter what one always appears as white.
I get it from here: Farming Simulator 22\data\vehicles\cars\vehicle_01 and so on.
I am placing my own cars I wand around the maps, and I don't want them to all be white.

I tried changing the material properties and color but nothing helps. How do I go about this?

Or maybe just how to change the color. I don't want random spawned cars. I need them placed and colorized to match my area.

Do you have a working traffic system, or are you just trying to import the individual vehicles? With the traffic system set up you should just be able to place parked cars in the areas you want, and they will display normally.

Yes I do but I disables the parked cars because it was spawning ones I did not want. I imported the ones I wanted in each place. But they all import as White. I'm trying to change the color of them.

Ah, got ya. I haven't had the chance to toy around with it, but I would assume highlighting the part you want and changing the albedo color should work. If you say you have tried and it didn't work, then perhaps one of the maps are interfering? Gloss Map maybe? I'm not sure on that one but Colin would probably know for sure.

Edit: Duh, now that I think about it ... look in the xml for it. All the available colors are usually displayed in there. You need to change something in the xml.

Got it. Find the RGB color you want. Open the I3d and change the value for colorMat0.

You could of course also create your own trafficSystem.xml and have whatever vehicles you like imported (custom or vanilla) as parked and operational cars.
