How to add a new trailer with new cargo. Part 1 for Euro Truck Simulator 2

So, first you need to decide which trailer and what kind of weight You want to add to the game.
As I am fond of such science as Heraldry and Vexillology, I will do as a new load flags of the World and the trailer in my example, will be painted with different flags.


So, with cargo decided, you must now download and install on Your PC all the necessary programs and templates to create a loaded trailer.
The links to the programs and templates:


1. ETS2 Studio V. 0.7.0.1 program, without which we will not be able to make a mod.
2. Paint.NET 4.0.16 - graphic editor, you can use any other image editor.
3. .NET Framework 4.0 - Paint.NET 4.0.16, you must have this component.
4. Templates archive templates, trucks and trailers. Open the archive with programs like WinRAR, 7zip, Total Commander and the like.


Then you need to install programs ETS2 Studio V. 0.7.0.1 and Paint.NET 4.0.16 on Your PC.
You will also need a text editor - Notepad is a link to it I will not do, as the program standard, and it is in all PC.
And after You install everything you need to start creating fashion for the new trailer with the new cargo.


You can now start creating the mod:
1. First you need to create a desktop folder in which the files needed. Folder in my case will be named - "New trailer - flags of the World". Then you need to download several images on a particular topic and save them in the folder you created earlier.
2. Next, open the archive with the templates, open the folder "Trailers SCS", select the desired template and drag it to a folder on your desktop. In my example this is the trailer Fridge.
