American Truck Simulator expanded by a Heavy Cargo Pack

SCS Software

PRESS RELEASE

Prague June 7 th 2017 – SCS Software proudly announces the release of "Heavy Cargo Pack" - the latest addition to dedicated DLCs for popular American Truck Simulator.

A BOUT ATS: HEAVY CARGO PACK DLC

Heavy Cargo Pack DLC contains a new set of overweight cargoes and specialized trailers which will greatly enhance American Truck Simulator gameplay.

OVERWEIGHT LOADS

  • Crawler Tractor
  • Bulldozer
  • Lift Truck Chassis
  • Lift Truck
  • Cable Reel
  • Milling Machine
  • All Terrain Crane
  • Scraper
  • Transformer
All of these trailers have a weight ranging from 55.000 lbs to 123.000 lbs (25t -56t).

MULTI-PIVOTED TRAILERS

All heavy cargo trailers match the real patterns used in the US. They're composed of functional parts, their order and use may vary according to the type of cargo carried. The first part which is the closest to the tractor is called the jeep and is connected to the truck via the normal fifth wheel. The second part is called the lowboy and that's where cargo is placed. It's either in the middle or it's the last part, depending on the configuration. The third part is semi-optional in relation to the cargo that is transported. It's called the spreader or axle booster. All parts have their own functional pivot point.

AMERICAN MUSCLES

To handle such loads we have added new engines as part of a free update to the game. All trucks now have a 600-hp engine available and some trucks even have a stronger engine to choose from. There are of course lower power engines too for those who don't feel like they can handle such power under their foot, well actually they are still a very sensible and economical choice for most transportation scenarios. We have paid special attention to make sure all of these new engines have realistic power and torque curves to reflect their real behavior.
