Game update 1.6 is here! Weigh station pass device, liftable trailer axles, differential lock

The wait for the final version of the 1.6 update for American Truck Simulator and 1.27 update for Euro Truck Simulator 2 is over! We want to thank all of you who contributed to our open beta test with bug reports, feedback, and suggestions. Updates for both games are available via Steam now.

MAIN FEATURES
  • Weigh station pass device
    The windshield-mounted box expands situational awareness for those who prefer to switch off all user interface elements for an immersive experience. It works the same way as the weigh station functionality which is a part of the on-screen Advisor "widget".



  • Trailer Liftable Axles
  • Differential Lock
  • Adaptive transmission modes (power, normal, eco)
  • Improved engine simulation model (friction, braking, consumption)
MINOR CHANGES
  • Air pressure simulation improved (pressure buildup, cut-off sound, application pressure).
  • Coin sound tweaked.
  • FOV range increased to 40-120 degrees in adjuster.
  • Engine brakes set to 3 positions (as most current trucks have). One-key-hold control will use full strength still.
  • If engine brake toggle input is not assigned, increase/decrease engine brake inputs work similar to retarder (in range from 0 to maximum).
  • Multiple fueling points on gas stations.
  • g_force_economy_reset flag is disabled after economy reset.
  • Transmission input shaft simulation (double clutch).
MODDING INFO
  • Single "overrides" (forced default) rule can be used instead of defaults-suitable rule pair across linked accessories.
  • All pressure units set consistently to bars (data, animation, dashboard UI).
  • Nominal air_tank_pressure value added to chassis data.
  • Changed interior animations: all air, oil and brake pressure (gauges, indicators).
  • New interior animation: trailer axle lift (indicator), differential lock (button, indicator).
  • New engine data: resistance_torque (measured at 2000rpm).
  • Coin sound made moddable in the same way as other sounds (through ogg file).

WORLD OF TRUCKS
  • Connecting DLC's owned by the player to his World of Truck account to make the content available for all World of Trucks features.

Community's Driver Seats

Recently, we've asked our fellow truckers via our Facebook profiles for ATS and ETS2 to share photos of their cool little places for relaxing and virtual trucking with us. We are always curious and excited to see the various unique gaming setups that passionate game players can come up with to enjoy their favorite truck sims.

And we must admit that you've really amazed us! We've got a lot of photos from you and all of them are awesome and very interesting. So big thank to you for sharing them with us! Also thank you for the very kind communication that was started with many of you on this topic, it was really cool to have small chats with you to learn more about your sanctuaries where you can relax and haul some cargos in ATS or ETS2.

The number of photos we have received from you is so high that it's not possible to put them all in one article on our blog. We were granted permission to show the photos from many of you, but we had to pick only a small subset. So we've chosen some of the most creative (by our personal opinion anyway) which you can see below. We will be picking some more in the future, so we'll be happy for more submissions. More driving rigs may also appear from time to time on our Instagram profile.











Yes, that's a laptop with ears.

More pictures are on our blog.
