Yeah, almost forgot that. SCS would have tried to bring the Cascadia(s) first, but Daimler Trucks North America had other plans. So the next truck(s) should probably be the Cascadia(s) or another Western Star.
On a totally non-related note, I'm also eager to know what is waiting for ETS2! Either way, 2020 will end with an amazing note. And hope the pandemic situation resolves soon, for the future years are really promising for both the titles. Until then, stay safe and healthy everyone!
Who's to say those plans still can't happen. There are more people that can still have been working the Cascadia or whatever truck. B-lining the 49X doesn't exactly mean another truck stopped production or intent for release 2020. I don't think Daimler is done with surprising us this year. Until 2020 is over, I don't think SCS is done with us. So yes, SCS can make such a horrible year world end on a much more positive note for me. Bring home the bacon SCS. I can smell what's cooking at SCS.

1. Yes, it does feel like a Lonestar (Cummins is the exact word here) while driving a Detroit engine. Sounds will be updated later.
There are three easy ways to fix this issue for the time being. One, drive the truck with a Cummins engine, two, wait for some sound mod, and three, wait for the proper engine sound while still driving a Detroit engine
2. I don't agree though. 49X >> Lonestar.
3. They refused to disclose anything about the CAD data. However, the truck seems detailed and accurate, let's just enjoy that.
Agreed. Definitely people should stop referring to sounding like the Lonestar. The Lonestar is not an engine. Cummin's are standard with most all North America trucks. So if any new truck sound the same, its because Cummin's can come in all of them on top of manufacturer specific engines.
I haven't driven the truck yet so I can't say how it drives. I am sure its nothing like the Lonestar on those terms. Its a different truck so it should be looked at in that way. Sound-wise, I totally agree with harishw8r. Those are your options. Just like any other new truck that has released. We all should know the deal by now with sound. Add in covid and it is what it is. But yes, most definitely as harishw8r stated............lets enjoy what we do have right now. We now have 6 total brands in the game. One more to go. Two years ago, no one was optimistic enough to ever see another truck in ATS. SCS has doubled our trucks now and more are coming. This year? I think so but we will have to wait and see to know for sure.

I don't like the new dynamic suspension though from the videos I have seen floating around
It is a truck not a hovercraft
Imo the ETS2 trucks seems better but this is probably a biased opinion
NA trucks are setup totally different. Oscar
confirmed that is more difficult to do NA trucks and he is hoping that someday, ATS trucks can get the same treatment that ETS2 trucks got. So yes, the ETS2 trucks have suspension physics applied to them. ATS would require revisiting the models to separate components to behave more realistic to NA setups. I'm hoping that he newest truck to release, the Lonestar, the Anthem and now the 49X, are already build for this, just not applied yet.

Just noticed the only actual issue with this truck for me: in-cab view eats FPS, more than any other truck I've ever tried. The difference between 1st and 2nd cameras is about 20-25 fps. Not critical by itself, but when combined with area-based drops (Boise)... OOF.
I'd look at this truck as a beta. Considering the limited testing time and secret behavior behind it, we are pretty much the testers now.

No it didn't, you've misunderstood this. The reference is that it released less than 24 hours after the real life release, not from the stream.
Your right, yes I misunderstood it.
