Modding Central

Modding Central, a community made by modders for all to discuss, mod and download mods for multiple games in a safe and secure environment.

A small expedition team from SCS Software received a kind invitation to spend three days at the PACCAR Technical Center in Mount Vernon, Washington, USA. It has been a great adventure for us, we have recorded a ton of truck engine sounds, photographed and scanned whatever we could get our hands on, and spent hours discussing trucking topics.

The level of support we have received from PACCAR is unprecedented, we got unlimited access to many trucks with friendly company test drivers revving them and torturing them on the test track according to our wishes. It will take us weeks and weeks to process the raw data and months for this to make a difference in the game, but it was definitely an experience that will help us make our games better for you.

In this week's update we are bringing you a new multiplayer feature called server side character control. It basically means that client position will always be determined on a server instead of on the client itself. This should prevent unnecessary deaths due to spawning inside of a wall and jumping into objects caused by a lower server speed. We also fixed performance issues for worlds with a complex conveyor system - they should no longer be so slow. Some improvements have also been made to gyroscopes - they should not spin heavier ships more than light ones anymore.

    • Mod checksums are calculated when the game starts and are compared with other peers when joining a multiplayer game. This is to ensure everyone has exactly the same mod in order to prevent desyncs caused by local changes made to mod files.

We are about to start our third and final day of MATS 2016. We have seen and photographed a ton of things that we hope will help us in further evolution of American Truck Simulator. Let us share a few images here, some typical, some quite non-typical; there is stuff on the show floor that is borderline crazy and unique, many showpieces showing the history of trucks, some exhibits hinting at their future.

We have been posting images on our twitter all through the show, so if you are curious about what have seen, we invite you to check it out. If you happen to have a twitter account yourself, we would appreciate you liking or re-tweeting our tweets. It may be a small but important support argument supporting our case when talking to brand owners - to show how active and involved our the truck sim fan community is. Thanks!

Today, April 1, we have drastically changed the direction of ARK: Survival Evolved -- rechristened ARK: Survival Devolved --, fully realizing our vision of creating the most realistic survival simulator ever where Dinos Ride Humans. So get in the game to saddle up and ride your favorite person!



In other evolutionary news, we have added three new deadly creatures to the ARK! The unpredictable furry Woolly Rhino, the armored, deep-water Dunkleosteus, and the chitin-rich Eurypterid! These new critters introduce advanced ways to attack and defend, bulk up on armor, and to travel the deep seas with greater defenses than ever before.

The Woolly Rhino is a large, usually friendly herbivore but can turn into a dangerous creature when charging its attackers. It builds up momentum as it charges, and depending on its ultimate impact speed, players can skewer the largest creatures in just one single gore!
