    SCS Software have released version 1.33 of American Truck Simulator today.

    The new build is something of a substantial release from SCS Software, adding a raft of new features and content to the title following a period of open beta testing by the dedicated truck sim driving community.

    Highlights from the latest build, a release that maintains the incredible level of attention to detail and polish expected of a studio the quality of SCS Software, includes a new "diversion" feature, where established routes within the virtual world can dynamically have temporary closures and force the player to select alternate paths to their intended destinations... yet another very cool nod towards authenticity for which SCS have made one of their key targets with both this and the slightly older European Truck Sim 2 title.

    Other notable changes as part of the update include a new road layout within the Oregon DLC region, improved weather effect on windshield rain presentation and some reasonably noteworthy improvements to the game physics, as detailed below:

    Build 1.33 Update Notes:
    • Buyable turnpike double trailers (Nevada only)
    • Detours
    • Added OR-140 road (Oregon DLC required)
    • Steam cloud based profiles
    • Reusable truck and trailer configuration templates
    • Physics improvements (suspension, damping, braking, cogs)
    • Rain drops behavior on glass improved
    • Music shuffling
    • Country/ state name localization settings
    • g_disable_beacons (0/1/2) - for people that have issue with blinking lights
    • Various customization options

    MOD ALERT:
    • Due to the number of changes, most mods will need some work to catch up!

    I still prefer the European counter part, but I might get back to this one too, to see the updates up close

    Detours are no issue for the Haulin' Ass Trucking driver. We don't lose time, traffic laws be damned.

    Detours was a huge feature missing from the American version as that is very common in real life.

    Wonder what will happen if you try to go through a closed road, accident, ghosting?

    OR-140 is a welcome addition. Navigating east/west between southern Oregon locations was quite time-consuming before.

    Pleased to see this game coming along so nicely. Much prefer it to Euro Truck.

    It would also be nice if they added OR-140 between Medford and Klamath Falls. That is the quickest way to get to Central and Eastern Oregon in real life.

    When are they going to alter the scale? Any one know?

    You mean the map scale? It happened two years ago. ETS2 and ATS are on the same 1:20 scale.

    Let's hope. Would make a lot of sense.

    I've been playing these games on and off for a good few years, and a detour made me late for the very first time.

    I'm very much intrigued by this as a wake-up call to force some actual navigation rather than relying on the GPS; makes things a good bit more exciting!

    Does any trucker get excited about driving into Los Angeles?
