Who did it better?

American Truck Sim just released their Washington State DLC, which now gives us a great opportunity to see who did it better. Same location in both ATS and the Stevens Pass route. *!lol!*

There is no denying that SCS is great at what they do. I suppose this is more of a comparison between apples and oranges but with the way that ac44 looks I think they should start getting into the trainsim DLC business. !*roll-laugh*!

Its definitely an apples to oranges comparison, my post is mostly in jest. It is pretty neat to see two where two simulators collide.

ATS is 1:20 scale. Only takes a few minutes to drive from Portland to Seattle, and many features (cities and landmarks) are left out because of this. A better comparison might be FSX, but then it's a flight simulator, so some ground features might be left out, unless we're flying Orbx-FTX or photo-real scenery; but the scale is 1:1 just like TS2019.

Regardless, ATS is a great sim, and as a native Washingtonian, I very much enjoy the scenery and feel of driving a big-rig through my home state. Despite the smaller scale, there's a lot they got right.

It's an interesting comparison; thanks for posting.

From the screenshots, Washington doesn't look that bad. But it's too green for my liking. I have always had a preference for slightly arid environments in simulation games.

But despite this comment, I did purchase the dlc from G2A or somewhere, so that's at least another $2.20 in their pockets at least.



G2A - Ahem I meant Steam a day after release. I have purchased pretty much every SCS map expansion for ETS2 and ATS.

Awesome screen shots and Stevens Pass is one of my all time favorite routes along with Marias Pass
