  1. [SCS Blog] DAF Tuning Pack

    I'm a simple man. SCS releases DLC I press buy.
  2. J-Spec Trucks: The New Cool Trend

    @andrinkls The reason why there is no engine smaller than 540hp is because it's a FH16, while your dad's truck is a FH16. You could save edit your truck so it would have a 460hp engine and RP it being a FH12 truck considering how similar they look. I recommend putting in the 460HP engine from the modern volvo since it has the same torque value as the FH12s 460hp engine (source)
  3. Which road do you dislike the most?

    The tollroads in Poland and France. Constantly having to slow down and accelerate is annoying as hell.
  4. J-Spec Trucks: The New Cool Trend

    ^ J-Spec approved
  5. J-Spec Trucks: The New Cool Trend

    No and 8x4 is not J-spec either. J-Spec covers regular OTR trucks not special vehicles. @Pokeman Your truck is too powerful and has too many lightbars for it to be J-spec.
  6. Server Config Changes

    As long as we have a 'simulation' server, I'm good. I've given the other servers a fair chance and I'd rather play SP then go back there.
  7. ETS vs ATS

    Nailed it. And this applies to ETS2 EU1 server as well. Many people who will not drive there and say they don't want to due to it being so sparsely populated don't realize (or don't want to realize) they are part of the problem. They go to servers they actually hate playing on, while waiting for other servers to fill up (which doesn't happen) and instead of taking the initiative and help populate the servers they want to play on they basically are waitng for other people to do it for them.
  8. ETS vs ATS

    ^ Honestly, could do more with more people. Hopefully when 1.28 comes out of beta and New Mexico is added things will become better. As for trolling, pretty much non-existant in my experience except for when the game is on sale ofcourse.
  9. ETS vs ATS

    You won't regret buying ATS. Since the rescale ATS's map isn't actually as small as many people will lead you to believe and when New Mexico is released the longest possible job may well belong to ATS. As for content quantity wise, sure ETS2 has more, but ATS has things ETS2 doesn't have like double trailers in every state (triples in Nevada), different heavy haul trailers, different gearbox options etc.
  10. What song are you currently listening to?

  11. Truck sounds in ATS

    The Peterbilt 579 and Kenworth T680 sound is from Cummins engines. I'd say the 389 is also Cummins but not entirely sure. I don't know what the Kenworth W900s sound is.
  12. [SCS Blog] Bella Italia

    Will buy. No map mod will do it justice like SCS does.
  13. 2018 Volvo VNL. I wonder, would this be the reason why ATS doesn't have Volvo's yet? Because Volvo wants them to put this model in the game? Just speculating here...

      Volvo is not an American brand

      What's your point? Volvo USA makes trucks for the american market.

  14. J-Spec Trucks: The New Cool Trend

    When J-Spec rules were made, allison transmissions were not available in ETS2. If J-Spec rules were made today it would have excluded allison transmissions for sure, they are indeed that rare. Though mostly used in buses there are a few operators in Europe who use them apparantly:
  15. Graph to show ATSMP population?

    Remember to take into account there's an open beta going on right now.
