Cattle & Crops Status Update 08.17.18

For the weekend we want to give you a small insight into the current state of the Straw Update’s development:
Bales can already be pressed, at the moment the Claas Quadrant still ejects dummy objects though.

Next up we will deal with the handling of the bales - loading, unloading, transport etc.

We wish you a pleasant weekend!

The open Beta of American Truck Simulator Update 1.32 is available now, bringing most of the additions ETS2 received a week ago plus some ATS specific bonuses.

IMPORTANT: Due to the scope and scale of the major changes to the game, in order to receive as much feedback as possible, we're sharing this open beta with the community earlier than usual in the development cycle. There are still minor known issues that we're working on, and it’s possible there are even bigger bugs hidden away that we hope you’ll help us discover. If you think that the risk and possible frustration with an unstable and unpolished beta is worth it for you, make sure to backup your player profile to have a safe way to revert to 1.31 in case you get tired of testing. Many mods may have become broken due to extensive data format and logic changes. An early open beta gives the mod authors a chance to start making the necessary changes right away, but for testing at this moment, you may need to disable most mods just to get things working.

With the disclaimer out of the way, let's focus on different elements of this open beta.


Those reading the blog on a regular basis already know that the major addition coming in 1.32 is trailer ownership. So all the ATS players can now buy, tune and paint their trailers too. And since the laws and...

With the update v0.2.3.0 we have reworked the hydraulics, it now doesn’t push the tractor into the air and the implements don’t sink into the ground too much.

You can now play the role of the driver during a harvest task und help your employees.

The game crashed with recent AMD drivers. We implemented a workaround to avoid the problem. At the same time our workaround also solves several rendering Bugs with the free Open Source drivers under Linux like missing wheel tracks on the field.

Don’t forget to also check in on our official Discord server:

We hope you have fun testing!

  • NEW: Dirt Ramping - the dirt on vehicles now spreads realistically on the surfaces

  • NEW: You can now assign yourself as driver. In order to do this you have to activate the button ChaserUserAction when a thresher identifies a driver. When driving away from the field, the UserAction has to be deactivated again

  • NEW: The screenshots of all profiles are now being saved in a global folder. In case you delete a profile, the screenshots are preserved. You can find them under \Documents\My Games\Cattle and...
SCS Software Countryside and Nature
In the previous blog posts covering the development of Euro Truck Simulator 2: Beyond the Baltic Sea (here and here), we have mostly focused on the new industry "prefabs" for industries. Today, we would like to contrast it by looking at calmer and more relaxing sights along the road, like smaller villages and nature of the countryside.

Part of the reason why we chose to extend the gameworld northeast was to increase the variety of the views along the road. We were looking for a change, and the Baltics are definitely very much unlike the previous Italia DLC. There are vast areas crisscrossed by the road network between larger cities, and we do our best to emulate the experience of driving on these roads with the local architecture and small villages.


ARK: Survival Evolved New Extinction Teasers!
Happy Patch Day, Survivors! It's Tuesday and ARK's latest update is going live just as this announcement is being posted.

In celebration of the patch today we're sharing what we have been working on: some brand new previews of our upcoming expansion pack ARK: Extinction. Check out the images below for a sneak peak at what you can expect to see on planet Earth!


In Extinction, Earth has become an Element-infested planet filled with fantastical creatures both organic and technological. Element has ravaged the planet and corrupted both the landscape and some of its inhabitants, causing mutations in the creatures and plants that can be found there.


We look forward to sharing more in the months ahead as we work towards our Extinction release!

Our Extinction Chronicles III event is going on right now, including new Corrupted skin, Explorer Notes, and Tek dinos. You can read all about it in yesterdays Community Crunch announcement:
