This article will guide you through the process of installing Winter mod for the 2020/21 season.

Important note: The modification can be installed in two ways for both ATS and ETS2. You can either download the base mod with advertisements for free or download the mod with all the addons and no advertisements for $1. You can find both links below. When downloading the free version, be aware that there are a lot of ads. Do not fall for false download instructions.

From here, you need to make a folder in your ETS2MP directory (this is usually located in your documents) and create a ‘mod’ folder. Your ETS2MP directory should look like this: ETSMP folder

The same process needs to be followed for your ATSMP directory. Your ATSMP directory should look like this: ATSMP folder

After that, proceed to move the mod(s) into the newly created folder, ensuring that you do not rename them, or similar. Otherwise, you will be simply barred from joining the server.

Your ETS2MP mod folder should look like this depending upon which mods are installed. filesETS2

And your ATSMP mod folder should look like this, depending upon which mods are installed. filesATS

From there, you should be able to login and connect to the game with the Winter Mod enabled.

Note: Do not change the names of the files as well as their content. Only using non-modified files makes you able to join 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 therefore need redownloading. Make certain that the files are fully downloaded before transferring them into your mod folder.
  • Ensure that you have not renamed any of the mods.

“Snow not appearing in-game” “Not appearing on the mod list”

  • Make sure that you are installing it in the correct directory, rather than in the standard Euro Truck Simulator 2 or American Truck Simulator folder, it should be in the ETS2MP and ATSMP folder respectively. Just like with ProMods, the winter mod files will not appear in your mod manager when you launch multiplayer, this is normal. If the winter mod files are in the correct ETS2MP or ATSMP folder respectively, then they will be correctly picked up by our launcher.
