Public Beta 1.28 discussion (ATS)

Open Beta test for the latest update of American Truck Simulator is here!

You may wonder about the game version number suddenly jumping to 1.28, as at the moment it was sitting at ver. 1.6. We have decided to unify versioning of ETS2 and ATS to simplify communication about game updates both internally and externally. The version number used to denote that ETS2 has been through 27 major updates, while ATS has been through 6 big revisions since the respective game's release. But we realized that this is not a crucial piece of information. It is more relevant and more important to provide the information that the updates, even if they appear at slightly different times, are based off the same core functionality upgrade; that the progress is in sync on both games. That's why we decided to only continue the numbering scheme established originally with the older Euro Truck Simulator 2 game, and stick to it even with American Truck. This way it will be clearer if and when both games reach a particular development milestone.

As usual, this update is full of great features for you to try out. Doubles are the main feature of this particular update which is great on its own. But since there are different regulations in Nevada, we decided to add something special for our fans. Please welcome triples and Rocky Mountain doubles which are part of ATS Nevada economy now!

Apart from those, there is a number of features worth looking into and we are sure you will take the time to study every bit of them through and through as you always do and then enjoy them in the game.

If you wish to participate in the open beta, you can find this version in the public_beta branch on Steam. The way to access it is as follows: Steam client → LIBRARY → right click on American Truck Simulator → Properties → Betas tab → public_beta → 1.28 public beta. No password required.

During open betas, there is a dedicated beta site for World of Trucks, which is used to safely test all new features. Please visit World of Trucks Open Beta web for more information. Also check our modding wiki too to get details pertaining to mods for the game.

Just as with the previous Open Beta releases - please keep in mind that this is still only a beta version of the update! You may experience instability and/or bugs and kinks. It’s completely okay if you want to wait for the final release. But if you are interested in providing feedback at this stage, be sure to let us know on our forum. We appreciate all your feedback immensely.

What does it mean?

Code: Select all

00:00:50.956 : <ERROR> [model] Model geometry '/model/flare/vehicle_brakel.pmg' is malformed.
What I need to change, and how?

the first one fixes behavior of registering truck upon relocation - when you move truck to another city but in same country and the given country does not have city-based registration plates (which is common in US) it simply stays same.
second one is set of fixes that make correct behavior in various situations (rather not-so-common). affects both truck and trailers.

@ Piva: viewtopic.php?f=41&t=244207

One or more mods will use custom unit/hookup/x.sii files that link to old scs flare models.

Doubles do support extra difficult parking, yay! I remember the hassle in 18WoS... double eggs, anyone?

Double eggs brought more profit than Nuclear Waste
