Today, SCS Software unleased a brand new update for Euro Truck Simulator 2 as well as American Truck Simulator. An Open Beta for Update 1.42 is now available for players to test out in both games.
Update 1.42 primarily focuses on mod support for Convoy mode, particularly for third-party modifications. The developers have overhauled the UI to better accommodate the use of mods. Additional details about mod support can be found on the latest SCS Software blog post.
Along with mod support, Update 1.42 also includes a few adjustments to Force Feedback profiles for compatible controllers and steering wheels. The developers are also asking Open Beta players for feedback on the forum regarding the types of steering wheels they’re using while playing either game.
“During this Open Beta, we ask that you help us by submitting your feedback along with information about the wheel you are using. This will significantly help us make tweaks and changes so that all wheel users can benefit from this update.”
