Hello @newf1337

 

What Support(Soul Knight) wrote is true. However, it is worth adding an explanation of why mods are not supported on TMP:

"Add mod *:
Generally, we don't add 3rd party mods except for aesthetic ones, this is because map mods bring a whole lot of different issues that we necessarily can't handle. Mods that affect the truck are also generally not accepted since they can have unexpected consequences similar to what we see with save file editing (parts in locations where SCS didn't intend causing crashes, etc.).

Modifications generally slow down the process of updating the TruckersMP Client to latest SCS Game version after an update. Whenever there is an update to the game, the mod most likely needs work to be done, which can take some time to port over to new version, this is one of the reasons behind not having mods. 

The major blocker is the distribution of mods, the larger the mod, the harder it is to distribute. P2p would be an "easy" way, though it still requires infrastructure, in distributing the winter mod, we recently had support from 10gbps.io, even then we pinned a 10Gb port for hours on end, imagine that we'd need that kind of beef every time we updated the mod. Even if we'd get the tail to come quicker, the initial seed is necessary. Add to that, you have to provide a backup since many networks disallow p2p traffic.

We could put the mod behind a paywall, but this is something we rather not, we believe that this mod should be freely available to anyone, with the only requirement being a purchase of either ETS2 or ATS."

TMP players have to count / wait for new trucks to be added to the game by the creator ATS and ETS 2 - Studio SCS Software.

In the thread on the SCS forum where there are announcements of novelties, 2 trucks were presented: 

  • International Lonestar
 
Spoiler

file.php?id=21477&mode=view

  • Freightliner Cascadia
Spoiler

file.php?id=20327&mode=view

Both of these trucks were already in the construction phase in 2018 so there is a good chance that we will see them in the American Truck SImulator in 2019.

CEO of SCS Software referred in a recent live broadcast and gave optimistic news about new trucks:

I hope I've helped you and now you have more knowledge about new ATS trucks.;)
