The time for Idaho creeps nearer and as a teaser, the SCS devs have made a drive as a sneak peek :
 

 

 

The last time they did this, the map was about 6-8  weeks out.

Haven't really played much ETS/ATS as i've been taking time off to deal with other things, but i learned of Operation Genoa Bridge and it hit my interest to go back to ETS, currently 2/6 for the East section and this screenshot below is my first job heading to the northern section with a large crane.

 

FH Tuning Pack came out a few days ago along with a small update that allows you to tune trucks a little, and with Idaho my mind tells me it could be out sometime later this month or maybe July, and for Iberia i'll assume November/December

ATS has entered the 1.38 Open Beta phase.  SCS have warned us it's very rough and ready at the mo, but we're helping them squash bugs while the majority of their team continue to work from home.

 

There's numerous map improvements and an update to FMOD as the key points for this Beta, but after the last few content expansions, there's nothing massive here, so it looks like this could be a precursor for the Idaho release.

 

The changelog is :

 

MAP
  • Las Vegas city revamped (I-515/I-11 interstate bypass + the whole city switched to the template road system)
  • US-191 road implemented
  • UT-56 road implemented + reskin of a little stretch of US-93 around Panaca settlement
  • CA-111 - new truckstop added
  • El Centro revamped
  • New company in Logan, UT (Plaster & Sons)
  • Reworked all truck stop gas pumps to be more realistic. More realistic dimensions and the logic of how they work
  • NM Shiprock redesigned + piece of US-491
  • Various map fixes


VEHICLES

  • Automatic transmission improved (shifting points, adaptive modes)
  • Las Vegas: New ambulance and fire truck


FEATURES

  • Visual improvement - procedural ambient occlusion generation (SSAO)
  • Route Adviser redesigned
  • Navigation ETA to the next waypoint in route adviser and in world map
  • Tobii eye-tracking presets
  • RGB color picker redesigned
    • Added RGB, HSV and HEX inputs
    • User defined color presets

SOUND

  • Update to FMOD 2.01.01
  • Fixed the retarder sound when the engine is off
  • AI - exclude the gear for trains and electric vehicles

Idaho is a few hours away and the previews are in full swing :

So what exactly does Idaho have to offer? This new expansion features:

  • Over 3,300 miles of new roads to discover and explore
  • 11 new cities - drive through downtown Boise, Coeur d'Alene set on a gorgeous lake or Idaho Falls with a lovely touristic center
  • A brand new viewpoint feature that gives you a new perspective of the world
  • Expanded fan-favorite industries such as farming, timber harvesting or wood processing
  • Visit the famous Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve
  • Over 40 recognizable spots from the Historical Highway Marker program
  • State-specific geographical landmarks such as canyons, valleys or basalt rock formations
  • Many familiar truck stops and rest areas that truckers will know from the real world
  • Finely-tuned road layouts and true-to-life signage
  • Idaho-specific achievements to unlock

Also, the fan channels have been giving us a few Youtube reviews as well :

The blog has fired up again and this time it's starting to hint at what is next for ATS....

Western Star are currently in the process of revealing their next truck, with the full release on September 29th.
 

 

But SCS has confirmed this truck is coming to the game shortly after, as in a few weeks after launch.  There's a few sneak peek pics too.

This is clearly just the daycab version, but the fact it's coming a few weeks after the official real world launch is important, SCS have been working with Western Star for some time....
