DEV Update 27.10.14

Hello Everyone,

The update is now ready for download - boot up Steam and if you have the option selected for automatic download, Spintires will download on its own.

It has already been posted, but here is the list of items included in the update:

- Steering wheel support​ - Supports all steering wheels
- Bouncing rocks fixed
- Vehicle damage calculation more accurate (higher damage)
- Engine auto start when pressing accelerate
- "Engine stalling" progress bar looks changed
- ESC key (default game menu) can now be assigned/reassigned
- Analog Controller input

- Lobby buttons no longer grey out
- Ingame chat history and scroll
- Multiplayer inter-truck winch pulling improved
- Multiplayer trucks no longer fly through air when connecting

Not everything that was supposed to be in the update has been included - the reason is because some more work is required to finalize them.

Mod support has been postponed as the system that is being created for the core game is a bit more complex and it taking some more time than expected. It was decided to release the update without it rather than to postpone the entire update.

Information on the next update will be posted in due course, this will include the contents of the next update. We hope you will enjoy the new steering wheel support in the mean time.

I no longer recommend this game to anyone due to two reasons, the developer released a non finished game and the developer seems to lack all interest in continuing to support the game. They pushed and pushed saying that they would provide updates at a regular manor. Its' been almost 5 months since release and the developer is just starting to send out fixes and new features . Ill post a link on the bottom of my review showing the update plans . Hardly any of these updates have been acknowledged publicly in the past couple months after being originally posted on the forums. The developers also had the audacity to mention DLC this early in the game.

The so called patch that was released yesterday 10/27/14 was supposed to fix vehicle flying, rock physics, and damage calculations. Nothing was fixed correctly. Rocks now have little to no gravity and vehicles still fly. Damage calculations was just reduced by a small margin. Vehicles will still get damaged when bottoming out. Multiplayer chat is now broken and the Supports all steering wheels is a farce. Only major steering wheels seem to work like the g27. You can't even rebind the steering wheel controls.

Obviously I can't stop anyone from buying the game. Just keep in mind that if you do buy the game, make sure you know that the developers are extremely slow at providing updates and they push out broken patches that require another 2-3 hotfixes . Don't expect major new features for another few months.

The only reason I do say buy the game is because that SpinTires is the only decent mudding / offroad game on the market right now. You probably won't see another offroading game in awhile. The game does provide a decent challenge on hardcore mode. You can expect to get roughly 60 hours of gameplay from both normal and hardcore mode.

If you're looking for variety in the game, don't bother. There is only one job you can do & its' basically just delivering the logs. Vehicles can be updated at the garage . These garages need to be discovered and unlocked. Visuals & sounds are nothing spectacular. Game is way overly saturated and doesn't have much depth that separates the textures from each other. There are multiple types of vehicles to drive. Each vehicle has its' own advantage and disadvantage. Vehicles also need to be found and unlocked to drive them. Multiplayer is generic as it gets. Its' exactly the same as singleplayer but with 3 other players. No new jobs, vehicles, etc.

I really hate to be rude / brass with my review but developers need to start creating better games and provide better support for their finished products . I could understand if the game was early access but I payed $30 for a fully finished game. Ill continue to update my review if I see any major improvements in the game.

I do also understand that a very large handful of players will not agree to my opinions / views and I'm totally fine with that. I originally posted a review a couple weeks after the game released but for some reason it was removed. My original review was a complete opposite of this review. I fully supported the game and really believed that this game was game changing . I basically didn't let the game & community soak in .

Good idea and platform, but it's not even close to $30.00 worth of content, it has 7 different trucks (though 2 are pretty much useless) 5 maps, no single player career (it doesnt even save your progress inbetween maps), no mod support and no steering wheel support. The Dev's are dishonest and string people along and just use the same excuses "we're a small team it takes a while" "we are really busy everyone is working their ♥♥♥ off" "our only programmer is on vacation for a month" and than get their shills to repeat the same thing, ignoring the fact that these were things THEY promised us in a few weeks not 3 or 4 months. When the game came out they promised major updates with in the following few weeks, a few months later the list has gotten smaller and it keeps getting pushed back. My biggest hope for this game is that Ovee gets bought out and some one who has their s*** together starts managing this project because it has huge potential but it seems to take them for ever to impliment the biggest changes. By late 2015 early 2016 this should be an amazing game, till than don't hold your breath.

I had high hopes for this because the tech demo was briliant and supported mods. I probably have more time playing the tech demo than the full release because it doesn't support mods. The developers first said that mods were gonna be supported at release, didn't happen. Then they said it should be an update in 2 weeks that is gonna add support, didn't happen. Now 5 months after release they say there is an update comming, hmm...should I thrust them? I'll believe it when I see it ;)

TL/DR below: Getting-stuck-in-the-mud simulator. 8.5/10

In some ways this game may not be considered "complete" - but the important question for me is this: is it fun? (Is it worth my $30?) My experience thus far has yielded a definite "yes." The only "objective" is to pick up logs on one side of the map, and deliver them to another. Sounds simple, doesn't it? Even on "casual" mode - this is far more challenging than I thought, and in the best possible way. If you enjoy carefully navigating heavy vehicles through terrain they have little to no business being on, this game is for you.

More specifically:

Vehicles: There are a decent variety, and each has a different feel and driving style. By default, each has different equipment that serves a different function, though many are customizable and each to a different degree. Mainly, there is the cargo function, and support functions. Get your favorite truck stuck in the mud or flip it over making a bad turn? Whip out the heavy slow one and wench it out! Smash it into a boulder? Bring in the repair vehicle. Run out of fuel? There's a tanker for that. Just feel like exploring in something faster? Go find the little jeep thing stuck in the woods.

Driving Mechanic: Weight plays a huge role in the feel of driving, and once your vehicle is loaded-up, every few yards of movement become a strategic series of decisions. Should I brave that pile of large rocks or try wading through that pool of uncertain depth? Is your vehicle sure-footed on 8 wheels but slow as father time - or is it fast as a rabbit but top-heavy like a bobbing-bird? Seriously - getting stuck in the mud has never been this fun. The driving feels mostly realistic - certainly enough to suspend my disbelief, and make me feel like I'm really piloting many tons of metal, rubber, and wood through a slimy river-bed.

Graphics / Physics: This is a beautiful game. Muddy, swampy, sloshy, beautiful. Not only is the level of graphical detail very impressive, but the physics and voxel deformation match it in kind. Tires smoosh under the weight of cargo and deform over rocks. Mud squishes out of the way of your tires and splatters all over your cabin in higly convincing fashion - and it even slowly dries over time. Water reacts absurdly well to disturbance and current - this might be the most convincing 3d water I've ever seen in a game. It isn't perfect - but it's still the best I've ever seen. As mentioned above, the driving and physics thereof are not perfect, but they are better than most when it comes to off-road - and I've never played a game before this one that accurately portrays the feeling of getting bogged-down in wet river-mud. Seriously. This is very convincing gloopyness, and the splatter of mud and splash of water are of higher quality than you're likely to see anywhere else.

Gameplay: This is really all about the experience of driving these machines in this environment - that is: big heavy trucks over packed-dirt, wet grass, rivers and puddles, and of course - mud. Lots of mud. There is an objective in each map, and near as I can tell it's always the same - but as I said, that doesn't make it a simple task. There are also "cloaking points" - which are basically an alternative to "fog of war" that obscure the map, as well as garages and vehicles to discover - and in hardcore mode - to repair, refuel, and reclaim. Each map is hours of fun.

That said - my one gripe on the current version of this game is that starting a different map will overwrite the save from another - so until you finish a map, it's best to stick with the one, as you can continue after quitting the game. However, the developers have explicitly stated this will change in the next update - so hey! If this sounds like a dealbreaker to an otherwise awesome experience, put this on your wishlist and check back later. You might want to check the free tech-demo on their website to get an idea what this is like - that's what I did. I bought the game at full price, and I am not at all disappointed - $30 very well spent, in my opinon. The technology in the full game has been pushed a lot farther: every aspect feels better, more polished, and more realistic - but the demo will at least give you a feel for whether you will enjoy this style of driving or not.

Totally recomend this game. was hilarious when my friend said he knew what he was doing in the mud, then got the MAZ7310 8x8 STUCK IN A DITCH... never played a vehicle based game with so much detail to the world and physics. if you get kinda bored after beating all the maps go to Spintires.nl FOR BEST MODS EVER. everything from front-end loaders to Brute-F350 and everything in the midle. even gta vice city on pc with mods not this fun lol

Most People when they look at buying SpinTires look at its 30$ price tag and think "is it worth it"

I know there are bugs still and some framerate hiccups whe you park a lage amount of vechicles in one area and another bug would be when 2 light sorces in one area it will make the only area you can see is where youre headlights are ... granted you dont need them to see at night anyways as well the long log cart can sometimes have a tire bug out and go underground this has only ever happened when at the garage area attaching it.

now im done with the bugs The gameplay can be grindy at times but other times you will ither be frustarated or flying to the finish with a grin the game is designed to be a challenge so it can get frusarating when you flip over your biggest truck or you could have a clear run with no hiccups and be like "yea its done" but the best runs are where youre going in blind and juding the landscape before action and creating a struggle within the game to get to the objective without fliping or breaking your truck as well as making sure you have enough fuel for your ventures on those runs you will be smileing because you overcame a challenge not because it was a uneventful jouny.

Graphics are asstounding the mud and vechicle deformation is the best ive seen the only other games ive seen that goes into this level is Beam NG Drive ( same devepoers of Rigs of Rods) , Next Car Game , Rigs Of Rods , of course these games are damaged based this one is mud based and the damage physics on the trucks seems to not be affectid by what you hit where you it it unlike the games i listed

Multiplayer- the multiplayer within SpinTires is local host so you can have up to 4 people in one game session there are some sync bugs that have yet to be patched but this feture can speed up game sessions and help new people to the game learn how to react to there inviroment accordingly and of course play with youre friends / pals

in my own opinion this game is worth the 30$ price tag if you intend on playing it for a while and if you like challenge as well as acheivement hunting some aheavements are a challenge in themself as well as this the game Supports modding which extends its playability and can even bring to light more styles of gameplay one being to poencially build bridges of all kinds when it comes to getting across a river or vally

The game has potential, but is never updated, they always talk about updating it but they never do, We were supposed to have mod support for this game (a feature that was in the beta, but removed for release) within a few weeks of it being out, it's been 4 months and they have't added a single second of content, which wouldn't be so bad if they implemented the mod support that is already functional so we can make our own truck atleast, but nope, they just want your $30, i doubt this game will ever have a major update, seems to be dead already

An incredible Game!....If your not playing in 3D Vision, then your seriously missing out on a "Superb" immersive experience! Yes, the game needs more, more options, more content, more machinery, and more fixes! I hope that this is only the beginning, and they create it all, the game is wayyyyy too good to not do all this....It would be a massive shame to call it finished! I commend all those in the creation of "SpinTires" very impressive!

First off, the minimum requirements are a joke. You're not running this game on those specs.

"Low" graphics look the same as high graphics, without the special effects, there's no playing this game on slower computers.

This is a "simulator", but after about 10 minutes it becomes apparent the dev team has never actually driven a car. Wheels do not seem to have traction, but rather a "force" pushes the car, any speed will cause the car to bounce high in the air and veer off course randomly. Your car will get damaged if you hit a rut crawling, yet slamming into a tree at full speed does nothing, to you or the tree.

It may be me just running on low settings, but its impossible to determine if something is mud or not. You can drive over the nastiest looking patch in a B130, stop, turn around, burnout, etc, never make a rut, drive over a dry dirt road and get your entire garage stuck.

Last, but not least, the game killer for me and most others: the camera. Forget trying to see around anything more than a bare ural. Camera moves on its own, UI is buggy and clicking buttons will half the time, enable the camera, causing your carefully positioned camera to fling around.

If you want to try this game, get the 2013 Demo on the official site.

Otherwise, Rigs of Rods beats this into it's own mud and back, and it's free.

In this review I am to write on my personal opinion on what makes Spin tires a good game however also mention key points which need improving.


. Most realistic off road game there is currently.
. The graphics are beatiful and the fact you can alter the terain is stunning.
. The game runs well on lower spec PC's.
. Multiplayer gameplay is very enjoyable and awarding at the same time.
. Map designs are fantastic.
. The crane system at first is very confusing however once you get the hang of it, it's very enjoyable experience.
. Sounds are very realistic and fantastic.


. There are glitches in the game which I have personally experienced, theses range from missing one of my rear dulley wheels, managing to flip over the biggest and heaviest truck in the game while towing one of the smaller trucks, and lastly having my medium load come off my trailer however didn't break down and was stuck to my trailer, which In the end I had to get another trailer. Will note theses are rare occurrences and I have only experienced theses issues once.
. The fact you can not load your fellow online players or friends with logs via the crane due to the logs being clicent based and not sever based.
. Online games seem to have alot of leavers when games are starting.
. Must have a good internet connect to host severs or objectives will not count.
. Feels that the game isn't quite finished yet.

Worthy mentions.

. Having more content and maps in the game.
. Having a more advance weather system, rain, snow, thunder and lighting.
. Seems that the dev team seem to be slow on updates and news.
. Some maps have certainly similarities example some roads and off road tracks but most maps do make up for this.
. There is an modding scene however I havn't experienced so I can not make a comment however what I have heard it's ment to be amazing. All I know if you mod your game you can not go on to muliplayer for the time being.
. Camera view takes some time to get use to but expecting updates for this in the near future.


Overal I think the game is an very enjoyable experience and since currently it's the only game type of this kind I would say give it a try, however knowing that there are still issues and the lack of content might put a few people off, however even if you are not a fan of driving simulators which might change your opinion. A must is if you know or can get friends to buy this game aswell it will totally transform the game and lead to many hours of enjoyment. If you are still not sure wheather or not you want to purchase Spin tires I would highly reccomend spending a few moments on youtube of game play and possiblely modding if that floats your boat.

I was looking at this game for long time, and finally got it!
I love offroad games and this has great user reviews. So what was my surprise that this seems to be actually quite BAD game.

1) user interface is bad. really unintuitive, hard to navigate.
2) CAMERA. I don't understand how is it possible, but this is probably one of the worst implementation of camera and camera control I have ever seen. you are just swinging around looking at everything except what you need to look at. I can't aim camera where i want no matter what I do. It is rubbish, I play games for 25 years, and I have never seen this.
3) gameplay is... it seems quite boring. engage all wheel drive and diff lock, press the throttle and going 5kmh you are moving trough mud, going somewhere, swinging the camera around.

I will give this game few more hours, and I may change my opinion and review. but at this point I regret buying it.

edit after another 2+ hours

I finally got map where I can play! third map I tried, I got ok truck and after some 2hours I flipped it. no idea what to do now, should I start it again? it says I can rescue to the garage. what that mean? there is no button for that, no options.

that is HUGE problem of this game. there is no tutorial. no help, no nothing. you dont know which truck you should use, where you should go.
I found garage but I don't have enough garage points. no idea what is that about, what garage points means.
I found other trucks, but I have no idea what are they for. I can somewhat mod the trucks, no idea what do what.
camera is usable on small vehicles. if you drive something big, it is crap.

this game has lots of serious issues. I don't think it can be considered full game. still beta.

but yeah, the graphics is really great. rivers looks absoultely amazing. there are great scenes.

edit after 7 hours:
it works now. I know what is what, how to rescue your vehicle, what are garage points, what truck mods do. camera still sucks, but after few hours you kind of learns to control it.
problem stands. it took me hours to discover these things with not much help from the game. after cca 5 hours you are at half of shorter games. here, you learn basic controls!!!
if I know this, I would probably wait for bigger discount and not buy it now (for 15€). it is very specific game for specific audience

There have been many reviews saying "meh i hate this game i wish i never bought it. Its so slow to get updated" and i want to say different. This game is awsome!

The physiscs engine was made by ONE MAN! And its one of the best driveing simulator engines around.
Yes its not updated often but what do you expect its a small team that is makeing the game who are trying their best to get new stuff in the game in a perfected state.
Soon there will be a new camera that will be better and steering weel support for those that complain that there is none.

To end this i would like to say to those gits who dont realise how small the makers of this game are YOU ARE IDIOTS DO SOME RESARCH!

I love this game and want to see it improve slowly but perfectly.
I also wish the team good luck.

Excellent game, one of the best simulators I have ever played. Physics are realistic, terrain deformation is fantastic and you have a big variety of different vehicles to choose from. The biggest minus is the camera, you will often find it difficult to see what's ahead of you, but hopefully this will be improved in the future. Other than that, it is a great and fun game to play with your friends.

Oddly satisfying to play this game of patience. Camera takes a while to get used to, but overall a decent game to play solo or with a party. Multiplayer lobbies are somewhat dead, but when you do find one, everyone tends to stick around for a round.

The first half hour spent with the game will be riddled with intensive cursing, then you will begin to feel that the differential lock should be on 90% of the time, and when even that wouldn't help, you still can turn on all-wheel driving which will pull you out from almost any situation. At least in casual mode. Anyway, be careful and approach larger bodies of water slowly, because they tend to be deep enough to stall the engine.

The game is worth its price, the trucks behave realistically in the deep mud (at least for me, who never experienced deeper than my shoes), but I have to mention one thing: camera handling. That's plain terrible. It's sliding from one side of the truck to the other, and you bet that the truck itself will cover half of your monitor any given time, and you can't see where you are going. But don't let that keep away from this title.
