In this week’s update we are releasing a revised building system. From now on, you can create a new grid from any block (not just from landing gear) by simply placing a block in any open area. We’ve also made changes to the G screen by cleaning it up, organizing it, and grouping similar blocks into groups. You can see if a block type has variants by the plus symbol in the top right corner of its thumbnail. To switch between variants, use the mouse scroll wheel. These changes should make building much more intuitive and time efficient.
Zooming in and out of 3rd person view now requires you to hold Alt combined with the mouse scroll. Also, any grid that is pasted into voxel from the clipboard will now become a static grid, including small ships. You can place them in at any angle and orientation.

If you follow this blog or SCS Software's Twitter closely, you may remember that back in April we mentioned that a bunch of guys from SCS Software were going to visit the Mid-America Trucking Show in Luisville, Kentucky.

While there we took thousands of reference photos every day for use in future projects - but aside from the occasional random photo we posted straight from the show floor, we didn't do much detailed reporting on what was really a very exciting trip for us.

Although everyone was very busy after returning to Prague, we always thought that it would be nice to sift through the footage and make a wrap-up report from our time at MATS, but there was always some higher priority task to handle first. Finally though, with the help of some friends, we managed to create a short compilation of video footage from the trip:

Now we're asking - would you be interested in seeing more from the show floor? This may not be the best platform for it but we could definitely select a hundred or two interesting photos from the trip and publish them, for example, on the American Truck Simulator facebook page. Let us know!​

SCS Software Mighty Griffin
If you've ever been to a truck show, you would be blown away by the love and dedication some truckers devote to their trucks. The effort they put into their vehicles is unbelievable - tons of chrome, hand-made parts, lights and paint jobs - these truckers take a regular truck and turn in it into a work of art!

We have decided to turn our observations from European truck shows into some cool new stuff to help players pimp out two of ETS2's most popular trucks. A new batch of gorgeous tuning content is joining our roster, made especially for the truckers who keep a griffin in their heart!

The Mighty Griffin DLC is joining our Steam roster today. It will enhance your tuning sets for the Scania R and Scania Streamline with dozens of new parts for both interior and exterior decoration...



What an intriguing discovery survivors, can you guess what creature it is?
