For this update we’ve got many technical improvements such as adaptive transmission modes, differential lock, air brake improvements and engine brake input in certain situations.

The weigh station pass device is a new thing that has been brought into the game. It is mounted on the windshield of the truck and it works the same way as the weigh station functionality that’s a part of the on-screen Advisor “widget.”

American Truck Simulator patch 1.6 new features list:


  • Weigh station pass device
  • Trailer liftable axles
  • Differential lock
  • Adaptive transmission modes (power, normal, eco)
  • Improved engine simulation model (friction, braking, consumption)

  • Air pressure simulation improved (pressure buildup, cut-off sound, application pressure), working air pressure values fixed
  • Transmission input shaft simulation (double clutch)
  • Coin sound tweaked
  • Field Of View (FOV) range increased to 40-120 degrees in adjuster
  • If engine brake toggle input is not assigned, increase/decrease engine brake input work similar to retarder (in range from 0 to maximum)
  • Tuned wheel noise to be more noticeable with loud engines
  • Multiple fueling points on gas stations
  • g_force_economy_reset flag is disabled after economy reset

  • Single “overrides” (forced default) rule can be used instead of defaults-suitable rule pair across linked accessories
  • All pressure unit set consistently to bars (data, animation, dashboard UI)
  • Nominal air_tank_pressure value added to chassis data
  • Changed interior animations: all air, oil and brake pressure (gauges, indicators)
  • New interior animation: trailer axle lift (indicator), differential lock (button, indicator)
  • New engine data: resistance_torque (measured at 2000 rpm)
  • Coin sound made moddable in the same way as other sounds (through .ogg file)
