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.

This week brings a new and updated character model into the game featuring an animated visor and PBR textures. This also brings more modding possibilities for your custom characters, so check out the helmet animation modding guide below. Other small features include pulsing highlights and new ambient sounds which create a better atmosphere in the game. Also, we fixed the freezing/crashing caused by mining on dedicated servers. Multiplayer optimizations continue with more blocks being rewritten in the new multiplayer code.

Today, Farming Simulator 15 gets bigger and adds a new vehicle brand - HOLMER - to its long list of famous constructors. HOLMER DLC comes with new impressive vehicles and equipment that will bring sugar beet harvesting to a whole new level. This DLC is available today for download on Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC.

...and Official Expansion 2 for PC

PC players will also be able to get these new vehicles and equipment in their favorite retail stores, as HOLMER DLC is part of the brand new Official Expansion 2 for Farming Simulator 15.

• HOLMER DLC

PC players eager to create and add new content to the game will also be pleased to discover it also includes the PDF version of the Official e-book 'Farming Simulator Modding For Dummies'.

The HOLMER DLC is now available for download on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

The Official Expansion 2 for Farming Simulator 15 (normal and Gold) is now available in retail on PC.


It's not just Steam Workshop support, there is another important feature coming with the next ETS2 and ATS update. Compared to where we were only a year ago with the whole wheel being just one monolithic truck part, there's no other way of putting it: we're going to provide you with ultimate wheel customization!

We were never quite happy with the existing system, it was too limiting. Customizing wheels should be more varied, more flexible, more fun! We have split our wheels into multiple components: Tire and Disk separation was introduced recently, in addition to it we have now added customization sub-components of the disk: Hubs, Hub Covers and Nuts.

Check out this little video clip that we have made. Rather than from static screenshots, this feature is easier to appreciate in motion:

Advanced wheel customization will come simultaneously to both Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator with the upcoming update. Just splitting the existing wheel models into parts that you can recombine according to your wish will already give you a vast variety of different looks. On top of it, we'll soon release a small but cool DLC with extra wheel tuning options - things like paintable metal parts or crazy nut designs. Stay tuned!​

SCS Software Arizona Teasing
We have been working hard on Arizona DLC for American Truck Simulator already for several weeks before we have shipped the initial release edition of the game. We are making great progress, but there is still al lot of content left to be finished. We don't have a release date to announce yet, but there should not be more than a couple of months of solid work ahead us, plus the final testing and polishing stage. Maybe we should try to use the Open Beta approach for Arizona, what do you think?

Anyway, we thought you may be happy to see a couple of screenshots as part of the confirmation that we are firmly committed to giving you Arizona soon...

Greetings truckers!

We are working now on update 1.23 for ETS2, and 1.2 for ATS. One of the major features coming with the updates is support for Steam Workshop. This feature is a really long time coming, considering that all of our projects always were popular for user modifications.

Right now our Workshop is still in limited testing. Some of our testers are passionate modders in their own. Even during testing there are already some cool mods appearing. Here is how the page looks right now:

We are looking forward to the public beta where the community for both games will be able to evaluate and test the current implementation.

The ease of use of Steam Workshop is fascinating - you just choose the mod, press the "Subscribe" button, and the mod will be automatically downloaded and appear in your in-game mod manager. The Steam client will take care of automatic updates of the mod in the event that the creator of the mod releases a new version. What is more, if you decide to switch between computers or to reinstall your OS, all the mods will be downloaded in each new installation automatically without any need to create backups.

Each player will be able to rate any mod, so high quality mods should quickly rise to...​
