Baiern Alpenjager 1.5 update

In this article we will highlight update details of Baiern Alpenjager.

First off, now it's switched to our newest scripting, which means no more problems with sim crossings, improved performance, as well as more realistic handling.

From now it will be utilizing GEMC UniHUD v2+, so you'll have most of your controls up there. Check the picture below for HUD overview.

There are also additional controls in vehicle's interior:
Steering wheel controls.
 Also PDC button on the bottom of the console immediately brings up parking assistance screen(ignition must be on):

Vehicle also recieved updated visuals, including smooth wipers and addition of interior illumination, new smoother animations, brighter decal-based tail lights, as well as upgraded towing system, compatible with updated trailers(enable hitch on the Custom HUD).

Towing system recieved a minor upgrade: now you don't have to re-enable vehicle hitch if you deleted your trailer without detaching it first.

Detroit Milestone

Is released.

GEMC Trailers update

General info.
We've switched to new trailer system, that uses physical connection between tractor and a trailer. It improves motion smoothness, and looks better in general. New trailers are still capable of crossing sims(in quite a manner tho), and can be towed by guest drivers(even between regions).
Unfortunately, new trailers are not compatible with Baiern Alpenjager, and will stay like that for few more days(until we finish an update for it). So if you don't plan to use them with newer vehicles, don't accept the update.

Motorboat trailer.
We added support for GEMC UniHUD v2, so most of boat's functions can be controlled with corresponding buttons on HUD. Front passenger can also recieve a copy of HUD to be able to rotate their swivel seat without clicking it.

Palette has been moved to Custom HUD, and is accessible by pressing "Color" button on main pannel. You can hide it by pressing "Color" button again.
There's also a number of various minor fixes and improvements.

Powerbox E150 trailer.
Now there's an ability to limit access to Owner only, Same group, or Anyone.
Also we've added an ability to "Sit" on trailer and control light tower's motion with keyboard buttons.

Light tower control animation.
PgUp/E - lift tower up;
PgDn/C - lift tower down;
Left/A - rotate left;
Right/D - rotate right;
Up/W - pitch up;
