    Have you ever driven one, Mike?

    The closest I ever got to operating a "big rig" was when I was a member of the volunteer bushfire unit where I lived (Winmalee - that's the street....we were on the bend at the bottom of the pic. Note the eucalyptus forest!) in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney.

    At the time I joined they had two vehicles - a Toyota LWB Landcruiser "troopy" (to carry a crew to a fire location) - and a bloody beast of a tanker - an ex-military six-wheel drive Studebaker with crash gearbox and no power-assisted anything, let alone steering.

    I got a Heavy Duty, Rigid endorsement on my car driver's licence when tested and, thank God, a year later (1977), when the fires swept down the Mountains from Wentworth Falls to Glenbrook, the Beast had been replaced by a modern Bedford unit (that is NOT me in the sample photograph!!) with power-assisted everything.

    No boss, only non car licence i have is PSV 1 (double deck buses). You been doing the big boys stuff then Bruce. I learned on a crash gearbox, no power steering. But all the service buses i drove were semi auto's.

    Dangerous stuff that fire fighting. We leave it to the professionals here

    Australia would be just a charred cinder if we didn't have the volunteer bushfire brigades (now called the Rural Fire Service...RFS).

    The final US manufacturer is now in ATS: Freightliner, and with them, the Cascadia (2nd generation). This is far and away the most popular truck on the road IRL.



    Also added to ATS is a new DLC with some decorative items for your cab to make it feel more like home:





    Like the steering wheels and hubs, it lets you personalize your truck, and also works as a nice tip jar for the developers.

    Oh? There's a lot going on right now. There's a tribute event to the classic Hard Truck series, there's the Colorado release event, and rumours are going there'll be the annual Christmas event, too. Plus the new Cascadia, plus the cab accessories...

    Plus, very big news: the Iberia DLC for ETS2 is delayed, because they are completely reworking the lighting system for the game engine:

    Must admit I haven't touched either for weeks or indeed months either. I got disillusioned with ETS2 and the constant battle between official updates and waiting for ProMods to be fixed. Driving without those roads in the far north just wasn't anywhere near as fun. Then there were the awful sound changes which wrecked the engine audio worse than a DTG loco(!). ATS, well I just tired of driving up and down freeways most of the time. I see there is a ProMods for Canada but I CBA to go through the same hassle every few weeks as with the European one.

    It's even worse making the mods, Vern... every serious update, I have to extract the .def files, transcribe my mod's values across, test it, package it up in the extremely specific way the SCS Workshop Uploader wants, put it on the Workshop, put an .scs version on Sharemods for the forum users...

    The Steam forum is filled with people having technical issues because of mods. Like, 75% of the posts are people who've installed a modded truck or modded economy or modded trailer or modded engine part and then something changes and it breaks their game or corrupts their save file. While I'd love to try stuff like the K-100 or the Argosy, the fact that some mods leave a permanent footprint in your profile puts me off.

    Likewise the Promods for Canada. They've done an absolutely incredible job capturing the most beautiful part of the Wet Coast, but no way am I going to risk it.

    (this may sound like the entitled demands of the adolescents on said forum, but SCS might consider contracting to Promods to let them build Canada, officially)
