1.39 was officially released today, now is the time to start speculating about 1.40 update!
So, let's start the party!

New graphics update with dirt and mud and truck wash would be great

@John29, as mentioned here previously, SCS will not have filthy trucks render in the game due to licencing issues. If they want to create a fictional brand of their own, with damage and dirt shown, they are more than welcome.

But they're risking a lawsuit by having even the slightest scratch on the commercially licenced trucks. Rain on the windscreen is probably almost pushing it!

Even the best graphics engine on earth will not see this become a reality without approval from the manufacturers of the truck. And why would they approve this anyway? Does one think that a smashed up (xxbrandxx) would be the best way of marketing a product?

Fictional brand is what will start a lawsuit.Why there's no dirt yet is because of performance issues.SCS tried it in the past and didn't liked the results.
I don't recall one time someone saying manufacturers won't allow dirt.Damage in the other hand,that would be a problem.

I think 1.40 may have something related to the reason why SCS changed the launch screen in 1.39.

I also hope that 1.40 brings fixes to some of the map bugs that made their way into the public version of 1.39 and hopefully an FMOD fix to the audio pop in the Mack Anthem engine sound.

This is incorrect. I believe it was the Washington Pre-release stream to where Pavel confirmed that dirty trucks are not part of the licensing.
