Glimpses from our PACCAR Research Center visit

We have finally managed to create a short video from the second leg of our trip to the USA this spring.

A small expedition team from SCS Software received a kind invitation to spend three days at the PACCAR Technical Center in Mount Vernon, Washington, USA. It has been a great adventure for us, we have recorded a ton of truck engine sounds, photographed and scanned whatever we could get our hands on, and spent hours discussing trucking topics.

In addition to recording various engine and truck sounds, our priority was also to acquire reference photos of Peterbilt 389, as we did not have enough quality references to build the truck's interior at that time. We have been working hard on the truck ever since coming back, and we are looking forward to introducing it to American Truck Simulator once the 3D model is finished and approved.

Mid-America Trucking Show Impressions

If you follow our blog or SCS Software's Twitter closely, you may remember that back in April we mentioned that a bunch of guys from SCS Software were going to visit the Mid-America Trucking Show in Luisville, Kentucky.

While there we took thousands of reference photos every day for use in future projects - but aside from the occasional random photo we posted straight from the show floor, we didn't do much detailed reporting on what was really a very exciting trip for us.

Although everyone was very busy after returning to Prague, we always thought that it would be nice to sift through the footage and make a wrap-up report from our time at MATS, but there was always some higher priority task to handle first.  Finally though, with the help of some friends, we managed to create a short compilation of video footage from the trip:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7LwO62ncFg

Now we're asking - would you be interested in seeing more from the show floor?  This may not be the best platform for it but we could definitely select a hundred or two interesting photos from the trip and publish them, for example, on the American Truck Simulator Facebook page.  Let us know!

Buy Euro Truck Simulator 2 instead of this if you haven't bought it yet - it's got a bigger map, more trucks, way more mods, and is cheaper during sales.

If you already have ETS2, then this is a good buy, but I'd wait until a sale (I bought it for the full price).

A lot of fun and looking forward to seeing more mods and DLCs for it. If you like ETS2 the engine is essentially the same except set in the US (desert southwest currently).

My only real complaints are that the AI seems to be totally insane with regards to AI traffic and that speed limits seem to bounce around like a pogo stick. For example, there are local roads crossing a freeway via underpass that go from 55 to 30 and then back to 55 within what seems like 1/4 mile (either side of the interchange).

It's also missing any form of "Reduced Speed Ahead" signs to warn you about a speed limit drop.

Even with these quirks, the game is visually quite good and very relaxing. I HATE driving in real life but will do it for hours in this game.

Bought this game while the steam sales were running and because i loved ETS2 so much (and trucks and AMERICA ofcourse :D), and i have no regrets, this game is just like ETS2 AMAZING, the scenery and gameplay are both just soo damn good, this game really makes you feel like an american truck driver (even tho ur not living in america, and you dont really own a truck :P). I just love this game soo much SCS has done an amazing job, hope they will add more trucks and states to the game, because at this point there aren't that many trucks and states, i must say tho the trucks in this game are soo amazing too, the peterbilt and kenworth trucks makes it feel american. So if you wanna have a fun afternoon, night or just want to play a good simulator game while its rainy outside (or while its even sunny :D) i highly recommend you buy this game :)!.

Pros:
-Amazing Gameplay.
-Amazing Scenery.
-Feels Real.
-Cool looking gas stations.
-Actually has Tumbleweed in the game.
-Has ingame radio stations (for amazing truckers music while ur driving down the interstate).
-Amazing Trucks.
-Made by one of the best dev team!!!.
-WHOLE GAME IS JUST AMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAZING.

Missing:
-Really needs SNOW in the game ETS2 didn't have it but MURICCA should have it.
-AI needs to be pulled over too by cops, because i think some of them are driving while they had a couple of beers.


97/17 Would buy it again only for the Tumbleweed.

Fun game, but worth the price? Not really. 3 states, and 3 trucks, 2 of which are very similar. It's been 6 months... they updated it which is cool, they added some cool features that I love but it's just... not a good game. This is an early access game, 3 states and 3 trucks cannot be a finished game. And guess what, when they release new states, you'll have to pay a load more money. Well, maybe the price isn't too bad for some countires, but here in Canada it's 28 dollars.

Good game, needs more content.

Very good game but until they add more trucks i wont be playing theres only 3 trucks u can just buy different verison of the trucks and they did get some things wrong like the power of these trucks they have alot of low end torque so that basicly means i shouldnt have so much trouble pullin the lighter trailers from a stop. I do recomened thid game if u dont know anything about trucking

*Spends half a day doing company jobs to pay for W900*

*Buys W900, then paints it a more AMERICAN Appropriate color.*

*Tries to make America Great Again by doing 90 MPH on the Interstate whilst listening to Hotel California on max volume*

*Flips truck on off-ramp*

*But it looked patriotic as ♥♥♥♥*

*Got towed by patriotism*

11/10 would make the Off-Ramp American again

The AI for the traffic is so realistic, they actively cut you off and make you pay for the damages.

- $800 fine for going over speed limit 1 mph.
- $800 fine for not having headlights turned on at night.
- $800 fine for very gently bumping into another vehicle.
- $800 fine for avoiding sleep.

I played ETS 2 for hours and hours... and now... I can cross through a small part of America, but America nonetheless. It has the same gameplay as ETS 2, with some tweaks here and there, but nothing completely different.
Get in your truck and start doing jobs for cash ;) and go for your own company. Then do more jobs, pass through all the available cities and see the sights while delivering some explosives or something.

So if you like to relax with some music and sit back while America passes you by outside the window, this is the game for you! Keep on truckin' !

Overall, i would give this game a 7/10. It's a fun game but it lacks, in my opinion, the real feel of trucking out in the rural areas of America. You don't get the feeling of being sat in a powerful, 8-wheeler listening to some of the latest and greatest Drake tunes on the radio. Obviously, the game is not near finished, i mean, there is about 10 trucks in total and abround 3 states. I suspect the game will add more states and trucks and like they did in the Arizona DLC.

American Truck Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator 2 are the best trucking simulators. Even if you're not a fan of that kind of games, be sure to check them out, it's surprisingly addictive to deliver cargos across huge open worlds on fully customisable, highly detailed trucks. Both games are continuously supported by the developer and have many years ahead to grow and expand. Regular patches add new trucks, features, roads, and regular DLC's add new territories and customization items, so there's always a good reason to come back after awhile and explore something new. Both games share many similarities, such as interface, engine, physics, that's because, I believe, they will be somehow merged together one day to become a kind of World Truck Simulator. There's already an online feature called World Of Trucks, that allows players to complete online contracts and share different kinds of media. There were some rumors about Euro Coach Simulator as well, which should add a bus driving mechanics, but it's unclear how or when it's going to happen. Mods are available too. A lot of mods of any kind, that add even more trucks and territories, so you will never be bored of anything.

An ultimate trucking experience across huge open world.

10/10
