ATS 1.44 now live in a beta version for all players! It is time for a new update for American Truck Simulator which brings map reworks, multiplayer mods features, new customization UI and more. Let’s explore the new features together and, as always, we bring you the best ATS 1.44 mods on our website.
ATS California map rework
After phase 1 of the rework, it’s time for phase 2 which focuses on more cities: Eureka, Ukiah, Sacramento, Redding, and Truckee. These were fully modified and personalised with specific landmarks and other local particularities. Take a ride there and see for yourself! The city of San Rafael was removed from the in-game economy. But a new, more important city will be included in phase 3 of this ATS map rework according to SCS. It will stay a mystery for now.
Mod refund feature – remove mods
A new feature to improve the American Truck Simulator multiplayer mods experience. If a player uses mods for their truck and then removes that mod or it becomes incompatible, the player is refunded the difference with the in-game currency.
Tuning parts update
There’s 4 new icons in the tuning section of the game. They express if the part is a factory part, licensed, aftermarket or unknown part. So let’s say a player wants to keep their truck with only manufacturer options, he now can do that.
Unmarked roads in ATS map
ATS has some hidden unmarked roads on the map. If you find them, you can take that shortcut and enjoy that hidden gem where not everyone goes. Now, after you’ll travel on a road like that it will be forever saved on your map as a dashed line. This is just in case you want to visit that hidden road again later.
Adjustable suspension for your truck
Raise or lower the suspension of your truck in order to hitch different types of trailers. It’s a handy feature in real life, now in American Truck Simulator!
Own your own drop deck trailer!
The drop deck has a lower center of gravity. If you prefer this trailer, you can now own it for your fleet! It comes in different shapes and forms and tuning options.
