Good to see you finally got your answer, flight50.
Heck yeah I did, lol. I was soooo pumped this morning. I have been waiting and waiting for this post. ATS had to get this, it just had to. I would have been sooo heart broken if it was exclusive to ETS2. With SCS's silence and not confirming that ST was at least a thought when I asked several times in other post, it became obvious that ST is in the works for ATS. So I started backing off a little. It was just a matter of when would they tell us. I figured 2018 at some point but not this early. I am sure we may not get it until spring or summer. But hey, at least I can now rest in peace and not get so worked up. I held my word though and I refused to buy ST for ETS2 until I got confirmation that ATS will get the same treatment. I now have no problem buying ST for ETS2 to support one more dlc for SCS.
I know we will get some cool cargo trailers for ST and I can't wait to see them. They won't all be the heavy haul type. In fact, I think ATS's ST probably only have 3-4 cargo loads that uses the heavy haul tailers. I am betting SCS modders are having a ball making US style configurations for ST trailers. The large wheel-less dump truck that is actually in the game files will be one. The mod is great but SCS will have an escort for it and will make the mod useless for those that will actually purchase ST for ATS.
The perfect thing about ATS, is that the map is small. As they are building new states, ST can be programmed at the same time the state is being built. ETS2's map is larger and a little more dated so they probably had more issues getting it to work. Since ATS started in the Western part of the US, it will also be the most challenging with the Rockies Mountains. The Central plains could introduce even larger cargo perhaps in due time considering it has flat lands.
I sooo love this sim, lol. I can't wait to see it blossom and steam roll ahead. The next 2-3 years will be very very exciting to take this journey with SCS. I may talk negative or get on some of you guys nerves sometimes, but I would consider myself a big critic and huge fan of this game. I can see and feel the potential sooo much that I can't stay off this site or the blogs for one single day. I have to know what's going on and be apart of all the gossip.
@TruckSimChris. Since you are already in Wa. Help us out. Okay.......here is the plan. We need you to sneak into Paccar at night one weekend, go to the executive's office and steal licenses. Forge it and send it to SCS. I will pay the postage, lmao. If only it was this easy, lol. I will remain optimistic that someday, ATS will get new licenses for more trucks.
