Update 1.2 is out: Steam Workshop, Ultimate Wheel Customization
  • Steam Workshop - a hub which allows simple distribution of game modifications created by the community. Thanks to Steam Workshop, you can download and install mods effortlessly from a safe and trusted place.
  • Ultimate Wheel Customization - We have split truck wheels models into multiple components: Tire and Disk separation was introduced recently, in addition to it we have added customization of sub-components of the disk: Hubs, Hub Covers and Nuts.
  • SCS Workshop Uploader app - Modding our games through Steam Workshop will require use of a dedicated tool for mod makers; a new dedicated Steam application - SCS Workshop Uploader. You can grab it from your Steam library under Tools category.

If you are interested in modding our games, check out our new modding wiki[modding.scssoft.com] - it's full of useful information and tools for creating mods.

Steam version of the game will be updated automatically by default, unless you have changed the update preferences. Also if you are using any of the older betas of the game on Steam, you will stay in the beta and will not be automatically going through a game update.
It has been great to see so many mods appearing on Steam Workshop already during the open beta. For those of you not yet familiar with Steam Workshop, we have created the following short step-by-step video explaining the process of adding a mod to our game.

Steam Workshop is a hub which allows simple distribution of game modifications created by community. Thanks to Steam Workshop, you can download and install mods effortlessly from a safe and trusted place.

Here's a short how-to on downloading and activating mods from Steam Workshop:

  • Launch the game, go to the "Mod Manager" screen, and click on the "Steam Workshop" button in the top part of the window.The Steam in-game browser will appear and you will see the game's Steam workshop page.
  • Go to "Items", select a mod which is interesting for you, and click on the green subscribe [+] button. Steam will automatically download the mod. When it is ready, you willsee the mod in Mod Manager.

SCS Workshop Uploader app



Modding our games through Steam Workshop will require use of a dedicated tool for mod makers; a new dedicated Steam application - SCS Workshop Uploader. You can grab it from your Steam library under Tools category.

We have also prepared a Wiki with full SCS Steam Workshop Uploader documentation and modding tutorials[modding.scssoft.com] where you can find guidance how to use our tools for mod creation.

Please note that at the moment we do not include support for map mods in the Uploader, this will come later but it requires more work on sanitization of all the data making up the map.

Ultimate Wheel Customization

[2.bp.blogspot.com]

As previewed in one of our previous announcements, we have expanded wheel customization options to match real-world customization flexibility. Wheels now consist of a tyre, a disk, nuts, a hub and a hub cover, and you can choose and tune each of them separately. We have recreated the old wheels in the game from these building blocks, but you can mix and match them freely now to get many more combinations. We have also tweaked the materials to bring you alu-disks which are the most regular type of disks used.
