Mack Trucks Discussion Thread

#1 Post by Marcello Julio » 12 Dec 2019 23:33

With 1.36, together with International dealership, SCS has added both the exterior and interior of the Mack dealership, and so far, the location of three cities where the Mack dealership will be: Pendleton - OR, Sacramento - CA and Yakima - WA.

Mack dealership exterior: (Thanks for @joschac2)
Mack dealership interior: (Thanks for @FierbetoN)

We don't know when Mack will arrive, but judging the dealership is already in the game, it means that SCS has probably started talking to Mack and negotiate the possible Mack truck that will be in the game. The biggest guess at the moment could be the Mack Anthem or Mack Pinnacle.

So what's your guess? When do you think Mack will arrive in the game? Will it be the next manufacturer after International? Which truck do you believe SCS is negotiating with Mack? Let's discuss!
Update 29 January 2020: In SCS Software's video A Look Back at 2019, one part of the video shows a recording section of the Mack Anthem:

Update 26 February 2020: 1.37 Open Beta added the folder mack.anthem in /def/vehicle/truck.

Update 27 March 2020: SCS posted a video make references the history of creation of the Mack Trucks mascot, the Bulldog, indicating that Mack Trucks will be the next manufacturer after International.

Update 14 April 2020: SCS posted a little video on their social medias, thanking the more than 140,000 followers on their Instagram account, and in this video in the initial seconds, can see a truck that looks like the Mack Anthem.

Update 22 April 2020: SCS Officially announced that the Mack Anthem will arrive soon!

Update 28 April 2020:
ANTHEM RELEASED! ... rived.html

So, If the finished dealer centers are already hidden in the game, it means that most likely the Mack will be next, which model - I think it will be the flagship. I think the release will be during the first quarter of next year if it will be second truck after Lonestar.

I have to agree with Vlad (ua) though. If SCS added the Mack prefab in 1.36, it would have to be there flagship. Not to mention the sound recording blog has Anthem listed. Pinnacle is no where to be found.

Biggest thing of all. Pavel said we might have 2 trucks this year, if that is a possiblity or not, none knows... we have no idea how close the next truck is. Some estimates I've seen here just seem (on the forums in general) mad wild guessing based on nothing. I dont see SCS putting these files in the public build if it was not coming pretty soon or alteast be the next truck.

Just like I did not see this Lonestar we got some hours ago being released at christmas or some even saying January when they are teasing so heavly for 2 - 3 weeks. Hell, I bet it was gonna come sooner this month but something held it up.
Not a fan of the mad teasing tho.

The Mack Anthem would be great, its something different in many ways, they got bold mean style, looking like it can take on anything. Not like the Mack R who even back in its day kinda look like the little kid on the playground. Guess it depends on how far back you wanna go on that.

With the trackrecord of things, often out of SCS control... really, teasing about these trucks this hard without any kind of date put is pretty near evil imo. Especially for some of us mad hardcore fans... so pretty much most of us on the forums.

I sort of want the Cascadia because its the most common thing on the road but any truck is more than welcome, I'd take a Fregihtliner vocational class 6 or 7 truck at this point... lol

the good thing is that scs can make it beautiful even if it is ugly (which is not imo) anyway I'm waiting for a western star though!

If the Mack dealership is already in the game, I think it's safe to assume Mack is the next planned brand/truck. I don't think SCS would do the same as with Volvo, but you never know what can happen with licensing... Anyway, if it's Mack I'm pretty sure it will be the Anthem and it will make a lot of us happy.

Really looking forward to new trucks in ATS. Lonestar will make my Christmas holidays fun, and hopefully, a new Mack will be ready by the time novelty of the International wears off.
