can you show a screenshot of structure panel with any of object (that by your expectation should show up) being selected in hierarchy window (and associated custom state button being pressed) ?

no, i need to see a hierarchy of objects, where "359" is on top. alternatively, save a .z3d file and send it to me, I'll check where scene is ok or not.

you have hierarchy branch ticked off (hidden) inside a collapsed branch. This is a default for collision to be ticked off on import.

sure, but mind this is a collision (physics volumes) of the truck, not the 3d model itself.

i don't know what the model is it. all original game models are editable. some third-party made models might be locked to prevent editing.

I personally haven't seen a truck model being made of just a collision. you are probably missing to load some other pmd files.

it depends on a model structure. it is quite possible to make model being assembled from a lot of pmd files. Original game models use truck.pmd as the base model and small fragments are added as accessory. A third-party made model could have base model made of several pmd files.

I'm just telling your .z3d file contained no geometry at all, only collision data. I have never seen this to be a result of importing original game's "truck.pmd" file, that is why I've supposed you're missing to load some more pmd files.

what model file (path/name) have you imported? is it a stock game model or a downloaded mod?

you should explore *.sii definition files to find out how the model is build. quite likely it has chassis in a separate file(s) and cabin in another file(s).

ETS2/ATS allows quite a lot of freedom in how the final model is build for the game engine, the truck could be made of dozen of components from different files.
