How To Create a Custom Truck Livery on ETS2

EuroTruck Simulator 2 is a great game where you can either play solo or build your own truck empire. But what will your empire be like with there being no way of recognising your trucks? That’s why in this article I will show you how to do just that!

You will need…

ETS2 Studio (v.0.7.4.2)

Truck Templates:
