Ask questions about the ATS mod here. If useful they will be added to the Q&A / Development updates.

Hello truckers ,

I ve been following news about ATS , as Volleybal4life , for now i won't buy it .

Promods has lots of roads with the latest version that i haven't discovered and much more coming soon , so i will see how the game goes with updates in few months.

You guys are too critical. Remember when Paul actually talked with Pavel Sabor? Why there are only two trucks in the beginning? It takes a lot of time for a gaming company as SCS Software to get license of other trucks. However, Peterbilt and Kenworth wanted SCS Software to use the newest trucks first. Then we can see how it will go. Think how this will look like in 6 months?

Do not torrent to try.. buy the game, and if you truly don't like it, just ask Steam for a refund, which they will automatically give you if you have played it less than a few hours.

Until I get a better feel for the trucks, I think I'm going to go with the balanced approach, meaning I'm going to play the game not nearly as recklessly as I do ETS2 :lol: But I'm also going to wait for mods before I invest a lot of time into it, as mods are part of what make this game great.

I'm going to play on the balanced approach when I get the game tommarow. I'm not too skilled with truck so I won't play the game as recklessly as I sometimes play ETS2. :lol:

It's not about the lack of trucks , but the world of ATS is too small for now , ETS2 had much more playground at the launch , i will buy it but later , as i said , ETS 2 has lot to give in near future , especially Promods and the upcoming official DLC from the game maker.

I won't be playing it until a good map mod comes out. The map annoys me so much I can't play it.

Two trucks at launch is for me aswell a minor problem.
I'm just not interested in an American ETS2.

@ Martinus Kundla , That issue could be solved by adding truck mods , some are already available , but the real issue is altleast for me the size of the map .

As this mod , adding 6 trucks for the list.

The issue might be solved, but if a company gives two trucks at launch and i'll have to download mods to get a complete experience (instead of a WIP game feeling), i don't think that company deserves my 20€.
