This article will guide you through the process of installing spring mod for the 2021 season.

Firstly, you need to download the mod(s)

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.

TruckersMP are not the creators or the distributors of the modifications found below. We are not responsible for the file and the page is owned by the mod creator. You can find the page of the mods here: ETS2 version of the mod & ATS version of the mod


ETS2

Base - https://sharemods.com/nm9w388mdu9m/spring_v4_1.scs.html

All Files (costs $1) - https://www.fatfreecartpro.com/i/10jiy?card

If you want to make sure your files are not corrupted, you may compare checksums of your files and original ones.

SHA1: 4BA0456C1430FDD793DB1DA4183695D04ECF772C

Note: To get checksums of a file on Windows you may use HashTab.


ATS

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:

ETS2MP 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.

Mod Folder

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

Mod Folder

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

Note: Do not change names of 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.

“Why doesn't Darker Nights work?"

This time around, we have decided not to support the Darker Nights add-on as it extends the night cycle. This would not represent spring realistically thus we have decided to not support it.

“Spring effects 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 spring mod files will not appear in your mod manager when you launch multiplayer, this is normal. If the spring mod files are in the correct ETS2MP or ATSMP folder respectively, then they will be correctly picked up by our launcher.
