30,000 YouTube Subscribers, 1.40 Compatibility Releases and more!

It’s been a while since the last blog, and with the first three months of 2021 already behind us it’s high time we looked back at some recent milestones and our 1.40-compatible releases. Finally, read to the end for some teasers of what’s to come in both ETS2 and ATS!

We recently reached 30,000 subscribers on our YouTube channel, an especially impressive milestone considering we crossed 20,000 almost exactly one year earlier. Make sure to subscribe for development updates, livestreams, and of course our official teaser trailers. Our other social media channels also continue to grow apace. We reached 20,000 Twitter followers and 20,000 members on our Discord server back in January — Discord is the best platform for keeping right up to date with development and getting more involved in the community. And while you’re at it, don’t forget our Facebook page and Instagram!

SCS recently updated both games, American Truck Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator 2, to version 1.40. The main challenge for the compatibility updates of our ProMods maps was the completely overhauled lighting system in both games. We had to adjust all of our light hookups (sources) and self-illuminating textures to be balanced in the new system, as well as readjusting the climate files to match with the new skyboxes.

ProMods ETS2 2.52

As well as allowing you to enjoy our map in the new lighting system, ProMods 2.52 contains a scattering of additions and rebuilds in Germany, the UK, France, Iceland and more! Furthermore, the Middle East Add-on sees new cities and roads in Iraq, Turkey and Jordan. Take a look at the details:

ProMods Canada 1.0.1

This is a pure compatibility update, as well as fixing the bugs reported in version 1.0.0. But don’t worry, we are working hard to expand our Canada map!

Trailer & Company Pack 1.28 and Cabin Accessories Pack 1.14

Our TCP and CAP add-ons for ETS2 have also been updated for game version 1.40.

Upcoming content teasers

2.52 is only the beginning of new content coming this year across both Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator. The team has been working hard on many projects, big and small. We’ve decided to give you a few teasers to get you excited about what’s coming up!

Canada Sounds

With the new sound system added, Sam, along with other developers, have been hard at work adding it into both our ETS2 and ATS maps. Below you can see a preview of the new sounds being added around Canada:

These will appear in the next Canada update.

Well that’s it folks, there’s a lot to look forward to, make sure to keep an eye out on our social media for announcements and upcoming development news!

ProMods 2.32 and Updated Add-ons Are Now Available!

A12 - Latvia

SCS Software has recently released update 1.33 for Euro Truck Simulator 2. We are proud to provide you with our compatibility updates for the ProMods map and both add-ons nearly at the same time. Do not expect any new content in these updates. However, we have included several language translations for city and cargo names, a new feature introduced in ETS2 1.33.

Please note that ProMods 2.32 is not officially compatible with the “Beyond the Baltic Sea” DLC. If you have the DLC, you can still run ProMods 2.32 but you would only be able to access the ProMods Baltic region rather than the DLC version. A future update to ProMods will require the DLC and allows you to explore SCS’s version of the Baltic region.

These are full releases. After installing these versions, make sure to delete your previous ProMods map and addon versions.

ProMods 2.16 – Compatibility update for ETS2 1.27 is available now!

We are working hard towards ProMods 2.20 which will once again introduce a wide variety of new landscapes and infrastructure into the mod. However, complications due to the situation in Poland mean that its release is some way off yet.

In the meantime, this compatibility update is necessary for the current ProMods map to work with Euro Truck Simulator 2 version 1.27. It requires all three map DLCs: “Going East!”, “Scandinavia”, and “Vive la France !”. There will be no future versions of the mod that do not require all of these DLCs.

Over 10,000 of our models have been converted to the new format required for ETS2 1.27. Fortunately most of this could be done in batches, but some models required greater attention. At the same time, we are reviewing the models from Poland Rebuilding, some of which are rarely used and poorly optimised so can be removed or replaced. This process will take much longer to complete, but should improve the efficiency of our mod over time.

2.16 also showcases the first of many improvements to the map in Poland. You can enjoy a rebuilt Siedlce and various overhauls of interchanges and delivery points elsewhere.

Cherbourg, France


Furthermore, we highlight some of the smaller bonus changes. We have several rebuilding projects, but as modding techniques progress some improvements can be implemented earlier, before the full rebuild. These “lite” rebuilds generally get rid of pet peeves (like single-lane highway interchanges or old signs and terrain textures) and can be done in a short amount of time. A demonstration of this can be found in Luxembourg and around Prague in the Czech Republic, where 6 single-lane interchanges have been replaced.

You’ll find more tasters of 2.20 in other countries: two roads were extended in Italy, while in France Cherbourg has returned to the mod and Metz has been rebuilt – both with many assets from the “Vive la France !” DLC to fit in with the surrounding mapping style. And as optimisation techniques improve, parts of Manresa and Barcelona have been overhauled to improve performance. Without a complete rebuild these older areas of Spain will never perform as well as those coming in 2.20 and beyond, but we continue to do what we can to reduce lagging.

Police Cars of Finland, Liechtenstein, Estonia and Serbia

Finally, thanks to some excellent teamwork we are proud to include AI police cars for all countries introduced by ProMods to complement those added by SCS in ETS2 1.27 for all vanilla countries. This was only possible with Jazzycat’s permission for us to use some of his vehicles, and PirriAND’s permission for us to use his skin for the Andorran police car. Our special thanks go out to them.
