If you can edit it in GE, that should be enough. There is nothing about size in the XML.

C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/Farming Simulator 22
is that where FS22 is installed?
what trailer is this?

so i just take the red "dot" and drag it to desired length i suppose, i have done it before but nothing happend thats why i ask, i changed a forwarder loadingspot to wider and it worked but not with length.

installation is here
D:\Steam\steamapps\common\Farming Simulator 22
i changed the install path to drive D instead

Well, that's the problem. The mod is looking for the game on the C drive. The error message shows the path it is looking at. Thank you that was weird.

I don't know what you mean by red dot. I don't understand what you are trying to do, so it's hard to answer general questions.

thats weird because i have always had FS games on D drive and it has always worked with GE its just this mod.
what i mean with red dot is that in GE there is a red dot for changing length and a green one for changing width of the object that being changed
the " dots " can you see if you marks the whole object

And what im trying to do is to make the timbertrailer abit shorter

That may be preventing scaling. I tried scaling and I couldn't scale a rigid body. That may not be your problem, it is just something to try. Turn it back on when your done scaling.
