Every christmas for a few years now, SCS has a christmas event where you deliver Christmas gifts. And this year I participated once again. Got my 12 packages delivered, which was fun to do during the holidays around new years and christmas, in both Eurotruck & American truck sim. And I did some extra, they also pay very well, which is nice for ATS, since I am not very rich yet in that one ;). Here are some screenshots !
Lately I have been playing more American Truck Sim. Ever since the last few DLCs came. They add more diversity to the terrain and make the whole experience a lot better than just driving through the desert most of the time ;). Love the new Utah dlc. Here are some screenshots from my recent travels.
This DLC is now available for only 4,99 and it adds quite a bit of fun to the game. A special transport can now be gotten from one of the cities mentioned in an email you get (in game), once you buy the DLC. I’ve made a video going from Brussels to Amsterdam you can check out below.
Also took a bunch of screenshots you can see in the album here. Enjoy :).
On december 5th this new DLC was launched ! I did a few streams (one of them linked below, check the youtube channel for more) on that day and thereafter.
It’s pretty good ! Lots of attention to detail, new type of roads, garages, pickup points for cargo and overall lovely scenery. Especially liked Sicily, wonderful little towns there.
Finally a new state was added to American Truck Sim : New Mexico. Drive east from Arizona and you can drive to Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Roswell and other cities ;). It’s one of the games best DLC (including ETS2), very nice eye for details, and added a lot of fun things and stuff to see along the way. But it’s still ATS, in which you can drive across an entire state in like 15mins …
Anyway, I streamed the game last sunday, it was quite fun. You can check the video either on twitch or on Youtube !
And the next MAP DLC will be … (drumroll)
Well that’s going to be great :). We’ll be able to drive from Sicily or South Italy all the way to Sweden or Norway.
You can read the details here at the SCS blog :
In other news, double trailers in 1.28 are currently in beta for ATS and ETS2, have been trying them out a little and it certainly is a lot of fun. WIll definately be recording ETS2 doubles once they’ve been released !
A little late now, but I posted a video with me delivering Xmas gifts in the UK. I am driving (for the most part) on the left side ! This past week I managed to make 10 deliveries and got the dragon paint work. I am sure I’ll use it in one of the upcoming episodes.
Today I recorded the first trip in France. In this one I drive mainly in central France to Montpellier ! It was about 50mins of footage so I split it in half. This is the first part, I just rendered the second half, should be up soon as well.
It was a bit of an ordeal to split it, the original 8Gb file proved a bit too much for most editors to handle (strangely enough). I just added my commentary track and rendered the video in Nero 2016. Then loaded that one in Nero 2016 and cut off the 1st part, and added the in and out fades etc. This time it worked perfectly. The GTX 1070 is so fast in rendering, it helps a lot :).
And all of a sudden, the France expansion pack was released ;). I somehow missed it to be honest, so I am about a week late catching on. But this afternoon, I took a spin up to Le Havre from Rotterdam, and it looked nice so far. Picked up some cheese or milk at a small local dairy farm :).
I’ll try to record some of France soon !
This version is currently in Open Beta. I made a video driving from Rotterdam to Paris !
