Map updates

  • 2nd Phase of California Rework

California was updated for free for any owner of American Truck Simulator. The following cities are rebuilt from the ground up: Eureka, Ukiah, Sacramento, Redding, and Truckee. There’s new architecture, landmarks and roads. In addition, the city of San Rafael is now deleted but a new one will be included in the next Phase. We are looking forward to that!

  • Border connections for several cities in New Mexico refreshed
  • Some New Mexico cities received road network reworks
  • Unmarked Road Exploration

If you can find those Easter eggs in the ATS map and drive there, they will now be marked on you map as a dashed road. Now you’ll be able to easily return to that hidden road any time.
