Impressions from IAA 2016



Just as every two years, we have visited IAA Commercial Vehicles 2016, the largest European trade show of transportation and logistics industry. Transportation expos are not as loud and crowded as major games industry shows, but they are in many ways even more impressive. This business is highly competitive, and especially the big manufacturers are ready to invest a lot to make sure their vehicles look the best.



We have walked the floor for three days, looking for inspiration, taking tons of photos, but most importantly, working hard to grow our list of contacts with the industry.

We also wanted to see what the guys from TralerVue managed to build using our Euro Truck Simulator 2 to show their turn-assist camera system. They did a really great job, and we were happy that their interactive stand pulled quite a crowd all day long.



We were tweeting photos from the show in real-time and reposting to our Facebook, but chances are some of our readers will appreciate a short photo report from the event here on this channel.

Steering Creations Pack + giveaway!

TL;DR summary: We've released a new DLC and you can get it for free!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qIQ02rdUvx8

A week from now the biggest European truck show - the 66th IAA Commercial Vehicles expo - starts in Hannover, Germany. We are going to walk the show floor in force, trying to network with manufacturers and taking as many reference photos of every interesting vehicle as we can.

Before the show starts, we're planning to release a couple of DLCs as a bit of a social experiment. We hope that it might turn into something of a case study on the engagement of the truck sim fan community in the industry as a whole; which would make a great talking point that we can use when we approach brand owners and try to teach them about the benefits of having their officially licensed products appear in our games.

Today with the kind cooperation of Steering Creations, Inc. we are releasing DLC featuring a wide selection of their custom steering wheels for American Truck Simulator. We met the SCI guys back at MATS 2016 in the spring when we were admiring their unique steering wheels that were on display there. Turned out they knew our game very well and were actually curious if there were any opportunities to have their products make it into ATS.  We agreed that this could be of interest for some of our players, and that it might also make for a very interesting PR experiment. So here we go:

We are about to launch a huge giveaway of activation keys for the Steering Creations Pack DLC - in fact, we're offering a whopping 30 thousand keys to American Truck Simulator players. To qualify for this time-limited giveaway we're asking you to visit or follow American Truck Simulator and Steering Creations on Facebook and Twitter. If you're among the lucky first 30,000 you'll get the Steering Creations Pack for free! Meanwhile on our end we can measure the impact of this test and if our 'experiment' garners enough attention it will give us one more argument to bring to the table during licensing discussions in the future. Have fun!

To join the giveaway, plese visit our blog: http://blog.scssoft.com/2016/09/steering-creations-pack-for-ats.html

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.

Awsome game. Just needs all the states. Hopefully they add four to five states at a time or more. Would also say that it needs more trucks.

Fantastic trucking game. To keep it short, it's like ETS2 but in America, and seeing the postitve responses to ETS2 just shows how good this game formula is. Even if you aren't too interested in simulators this can be fun, it's only $20 as well, basically a must have for everyone out there. Word of warning though, this is a lot younger than ETS2, so it has a lot less content than ETS2 (but still tons of mods) more will come with time.

I would say that American Truck is almost the same as Euro Truck. What's different is the sceneries, trucks, trailers and of course the road. I personally like the game, but at the moment the game itself is getting boring due to its relatively small map and scale. But the dev are working on it so I guess it will be much more better soon. I would recommend buying this if you have already own Euro Truck. But if you are planning or deciding which to buy between american or euro, I would totally recomment Euro Truck first before American.

I sincerely recommending the demo to see what the game looks like. In the full version, you get 2x more stuff. Nevada is the best state in game. I always get tired driving around Califorina. Now I got the full game. Also I recommend you put the brake intensity to full. Just for sudden stops. Anyways 10/10. Love it. Would recommend to friends and family.

Worst SCS Software game. I just can say that if this game was a DLC for Euro Truck Simulator 2 this would be much more sincere game. Random penaltys saying you hit a car but you just driving in highway. ZERO cars on your lane. Worst/random hitbox causes you to wreck your truck, causes you penalty for hitting cars. Zero realism on the highway. Worst Artificial Intelligence causes to traffic freeze, crash you into cars, hit your track with full speed, when you try to go backwards they lean on your tail but for gods sake they go backwards too (which is not often but a good detail) etc. At nights darkest atmosphere but you can see like morning on your rear mirrors. Not enough atmosphere for American map. Only three companies for trucks which means you will buy DLC's to get more companies. No diffirence between Euro Truck Simulator except parking trucks option, weighbridge etc. which is very nice and good details but worthless with this bugs. For money making you have to get bored from game to build a good company. When you get loan you lose your all passion for game. Game makes you fell like its a "Working progress" game. Which overall I say NO to this game, I didnt liked it.
PS : Review may harsh but I will continue to play game and update this review.
