As the temperature lowers and the chance of snow increases, it can only mean one thing. It's becoming winter again! For the first time ever, we have been supporting seasonal modifications for an entire year. We have teamed up with Grimes once again to support the Frosty Winter Weather Mod on both American Truck Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator 2.
To use this modification on our servers, there are a few steps you need to follow. As we have done previously in addition to the mod creator’s request, you will have to download the mod from a third-party website.
You can find all the information on how to install this modification in our knowledge base article: How to install the Winter Mod
As with the previous editions of the Grimes environmental mods, this modification is optional and not required to play on our servers.
On top of the Winter environmental mod, we will also support two optional addons for the mod: Heavy Winter Add-on and Physics Add-on as well as the ProMods Canada patch. The Physics Add-on will only be supported on American Truck Simulator. Sadly this year, we will not be supporting the Darker Nights optional addon. We are happy to announce that this modification is also compatible with ProMods and accessible across all servers!
As we move into winter and support for this mod, this does mean that we have disabled support for the Late Autumn environmental mod. Make sure to share your screenshots using the Winter mod with us on social media at @TruckersMP on Twitter and @truckersmp.official on Instagram.
Note: All rules need to be respected, even if you have the winter mod activated. Incidents caused by changed physics or sight are still reviewed in the same way as when the winter mod is not applied. Please refer to our rules for more information. We recommend using the Arcade server, especially, when playing with the Physics Addon.
Have a safe winter from all of us here at the TruckersMP Team!
