Recently I’ve been enjoying ATS with several addon (mod) maps: C2C (or Coast to Coast), MexUSCAN, interstate 10 and highway 50.
4 different maps by 4 different authors and what started out as an every-man-for-himself show, has now resulted in a great combination of map addons which can all be used simultaneously. Currently SCS is working on rescaling the default map, which makes all non-standalone maps incompatible. Luckily, all authors are currently working on a re-scaled version of their map. This is a HUGE task and please, if you enjoy these maps, show the authors some love in their topics because they are investing their spare time developing this map for nothing in return.
If you came here looking for a working mod order than look no further. For all maps to function properly put the mods in the following order:
– US50 & CA99 (highest priority map)
– Interstate 10
– Coast to Coast (lowest priority map)
Both MexUSCan and Interstate 10 require Coast to Coast to work. So you will need this map for the other maps to work. If you use the “Sound Fixes Pack” mod, or your zoom isn’t working properly on your map, try the “Zoom Fix for Sound Fixes Pack v.17.x” in this thread: http://forum.scssoft.com/viewtopic.php?f=194&t=205149#p548327 and place the patch higher than your map and the “Sound Fixes pack” mod.
Let me state that this is a combination of maps I am currently using, and these maps are all compatible with the default map. There are more, very good, maps out there for American Truck Simulator, for example “Dalton Highway” and “MHAPro”.
Coast to Coast
C2C or Coast to Coast is a well known map for American Truck Simulator. This map is developed by Mantrid and started as a single interstate going from east all the way to the west coast. Hence the name. This was a highway in the simplest of forms, without any scenery and with few gas stations along the way.
Currently the map features over thousands of miles of interstates and highway. Scenery is still scarce but vegetation along with some tree’s have been added, which basically is pretty realistic for most interstates in the US.
A (very) short list of the cities and interstates in C2C:
– Sioux Falls
– New York
Some of the better known interstates featured in C2C are:
– I-40, expanding from Holbrook, California and running all the way to Raleigh, North Carolina.
– I-35, starting in Canada and going all the way to the deep south, ending in San Antonio, Texas.
– I-80, connecting Elko, Nevada to New York, New York.
Again, this is just a short list of interstates and cities available, this map is HUGE! You can find the map here: http://forum.scssoft.com/viewtopic.php?f=194&t=202317.
MexUSCan – Short for Mexico, USA and Canada, started out with a few new cities in the aforementioned countries, but has dropped Mexico from the list from version 1.11 and higher and now also requires C2C for it to work. MexUSCan is developed by ManiaX, you can find the map here: http://forum.scssoft.com/viewtopic.php?f=194&t=205149.
– Fort McMurray
– Whitehorse (Yukon Territory)
– Fairbanks (Alaska)
– Nome (Alaska)
– Prudhoe Bay (Alaska)
If you have ever watched Highway Thru Hell you surely know the famous Alaska Highway and the Coquihalla Highway. And for all you Ice Road Truckers, the Dalton Highway connects Fairbanks to Prudhoe Bay. So there is much to explore and extreme highways to conquer!
Most of the interstates run through heavily wooded area’s in Oregon (USA), Washington (USA), British Columbia (Canada) and Alaska (USA) and the interstates are built accordingly with enough trees and scenery. ManiaX did an absolutely amazing job on this map. One of my favourite roads runs from Kamloops to Hornbrook. It’s well built and amazing with and without the winter mod.
This map is called Interstate 10 and features, you guessed it, interstate 10. Expanding the default I-10 all the way to (I think!) Tallahassee. This add-on is alot smaller than C2C or MexUSCan and very detailed. RickPP, the author of the map, surely did an amazing job on this interstate. This map also features an entire raceway, which is pretty darn cool to drive on!

US 50 & CA 99
The smallest of them all, US 50 & CA 99. The smallest, but certainly the most detailed map. This map starts in Stockton, California and ends in.. well, I don’t know. I know it adds a couple of new cities: Yuba City and Chico. This map has some spectacular roads and I highly recommend it!
US 50 & CA 99 is developed by Seal0027 and you can follow his updates on the following post: http://forum.scssoft.com/viewtopic.php?f=194&t=203831.
