ATS is an awesome Sim!
I've been reading a lot of threads from people having bad experiences with ATS, or something about the sim or SCS irritates them, but I'm a quite happy camper! If you have the PC for it and add in a good wheel and shifter, it's really a very sleek Sim! I admit that it has it's shortcomings in some areas, but on the whole, ATS is really quite a well polished, sleek Simulator! I use 3 mods, the dash ticker, and 2 paint mods. I like to drive in the cab as is, only using the ticker and map as needed. The actual mirrors are more than enough for realistic coupling, so I don't use any F2 mirrors. For parking, I use an outside camera... I may start trying some cab mirrors only parking, but only if it's fun. The ratios and transmission/drivetrain physics are definitely close enough for manual 18 speed shifting. I just finished a few thousand miles today and really enjoyed it, so I thought a few good words about ATS were in order. Bring on the DLC, and I'll happily break out the cash for more!! I'm nearing 400 hours and can drive more a lot more until we see some DLC... when it's ready, it's ready, no rush needed. I certainly hope there are more than just me (I'm sure there are) that are getting some great entertainment out of ATS as well!

Cheers!

Glad to hear you are enjoying the game. It is a fantastic game and will only get better. SCS are very commited to ATS and ETS2 and it is good to hear some positive feedback for them. Enjoy! :)

This is a very nice game to have in Steam Library. Although the progress is slow, it is still better than nothing. Standard dump trucks, off-road trucks -like Kenworth C500- and snow weather will mean a lot for the owners of ATS if developers decide to add these features.

Indeed it is!
A great 'rainy day' game when it's just too crappy outside to do anything... lol

;)Play hour or two on my days and then hour afterwork. Like you take delivery 300 miles finish and pick where you left off.

Yeah, it's truly a 10/10 and looks to only get better.

There seems to be a lot of complaining that it's not the full country but the game is AMERICAN truck sim and with the 3 base states they give you it is delivering the experience of being an American trucker. Even if there was no more DLC to come I'd say it lives up to the title and gives a full experience. More states are just frosting on the cake.
