The following is a step-by-step guide on how to install the ProMods Canada modification for American Truck Simulator, in order to be able to use ProMods Canada on our servers.
Important: You need to own all DLCs listed here in order to play ProMods Canada!
Furthermore, World Of Trucks jobs may not work properly in ProMods. This is nothing we can change.
If you played ProMods Canada in singleplayer before, you are not required to do anything with an exception for making sure you have the newest version. Otherwise, you will get an error message that the modification files are missing when you try to connect to a ProMods server.
Head over to https://www.promods.net and create an account, or log in to your account if you already own one.
Navigate to https://www.promods.net/setup.php?game=ats. You will be asked to choose a language, followed by the creation of a “def” file. Not all options in the definition file will be used in the multiplayer.
Select the preferred option how you want to download ProMods Canada. The paid (fast) option will make you able to download the full mod in one archive, at a higher speed than the free (slow) option. If you chose the slow option, you will have to download all files one by one.
Make sure to extract the downloaded files.
Once you have all ProMods files on your system, head to the mod folder in your American Truck Simulator directory, and move all files into this directory. The game data folder is usually in Documents unless you specified otherwise in the launch options.
Please note, do not put the files in the TruckersMP mod folder. You have to take the mod folder of the American Truck Simulator directory.
Do NOT change the name of any ProMods file, else they will not be recognised by the TruckersMP launcher.
Keep in mind that TruckersMP has an own manager of modifications and thus, you will not see ProMods in the Mods Manager in-game.
Run the TruckersMP launcher, select the option to launch American Truck Simulator and join a server with the ProMods Canada icon. Please note, it might take some time to get past the loading screen.
American Truck Simulator will show you a "Missing modifications detected" warning. You must click on “Load Anyway” and ProMods will start correctly
If you select the ProMods server, but are getting an error, you will have to read this error and fix it. In case you are unable to fix the error, feel free to contact our support team at https://truckersmp.com/support/ticket/create
Please remember that the redistribution of ProMods files is not allowed! This is software piracy and a criminal offense. Furthermore, it is against our TruckersMP rules.
