This guide will guide you through the process of installing the Winter Mod for the 2021-2022 season.

This year all add-ons from the Grimes Winter mod will be supported with the exception of the physics add-on.
However, we will support another Winter physics add-on on our servers, which can be found here: Winter Physics.
For details on where to place this file, continue following the steps in this article.
Please bear in mind that you are fully responsible for using this add-on along with any rule violations caused by using this.

With the Winter Mod available, the automatic check for lights has been changed to:
ATS: 18:00 (6 PM) - 09:00 (9 AM)
ETS2: 17:00 (5 PM) - 08:00 (8 AM)

The modification can be installed in two ways for both American Truck Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator 2. You can either download it with advertisements for free or download it without advertisements for $1. Both links can be found below.

TruckersMP are not the creators or distributors of the modifications found below. We are not responsible for the file or the page which is owned by the mod creator.

From here, you need to create a folder in your ATSMP or ETS2MP directory (this is usually located in your documents) with the name “mod”. Your ATSMP directory should look like this:
ATSMP Directory

Your ETS2MP Directory should look like this:
ETS2MP Directory

After that, proceed to move the modification into the mod folder, ensuring that you do not rename them, or similar. Otherwise, you will not be able to connect to the server.

Your ATSMP mod folder should now look like this: ATSMP mod folder

Your ETS2MP mod folder should now look like this: ETS2MP mod folder
Your folders might have less files, depending on which optional add-ons you did not install.

Now you should be able to log in and connect to the server with the Winter Mod enabled.

Note: Do not change file names or their content. Only when using unmodified files will you be able to connect to the servers. Also only use the official download links provided by the mod author and never use download links provided by others.


Troubleshooting

"Error when joining the server"

  • It is possible that the files are corrupted and you need to redownload them. Make sure that the files were fully downloaded before you transferred them into your mod folder.
  • Ensure that you have not renamed any of the files.

"Not appearing in the Mod Manager"

  • Make sure that you have installed them in the correct directory, rather than in the standard American Truck Simulator or Euro Truck Simulator 2 folder, it should be in the ATSMP or ETS2MP folder respectively. Just like with ProMods, the Winter Mod files will not appear in your Mod Manager when you launch TruckersMP, this is normal. If the Winter Mod files are in the correct folder, they will be picked up by our launcher.
