Bang Bang: Wild Wheels In American Truck Sim DLC

Silly and great

American Truck Simulator [official site] offers a fine bit of pootling but it's lacked three things I'd want in My Dream American Driving Experience: a grander scale; a steering wheel whose spokes were gleaming chromed revolvers with ivory grips; and actual proper redwoods. Well! It's getting close. Developers SCS Software have been working on upscaling ATS for a few months, and now they've released cosmetic DLC adding licensed recreations of flashy and absurd steering wheels made for actual trucks by Steering Creations. And heck yes it has a six shooter wheel.

The Steering Creations Pack adds twenty wheels from the custom parts company, some of which look like luxury kit yoinked from a vintage BMW or Jaguar and some of which look like they should be hanging from the wall of an edgy dive bar. The pack's £1.99/2,99€/$2.99 on Steam, though SCS are giving a load of keys away free to folks who jump through hoops with social media accounts. Here's the lineup:

My morning has been brightened greatly by seeing that six shooter wheel. Just look at it! What a ridiculous thing. I must have it for my American truck.

While I'm here, I'll point out that over the weeks SCS have shared a few more loads of screenshots of their rescaling project. The plan is to give the land a grander scale, stretching out the roads between cities and making the landscape more dramatic. The results of that will arrive as a free update.

Now if they'd only say something about chuffing redwoods...
