With update we want to offer you more immersion and gameplay. Therefore, we have added environment sounds to this version. This means you can hear various sounds on the Albergtal map, which makes the game feel more realistic. The birdsong, rain and wind sounds are some examples. In addition, your character has now been given movement noise, which also differs depending on ground types. This is completed by sounds that attract and scare away animals.

The Albergtal Map was further updated. The vehicle trader now has tractors in his showroom and the sewage plant has been made a bit nicer. The farmhouse and all buildings have been reworked and got a more realistic look. The barn is now finally a barn and does not look so clinically anymore. The farmhouse now has automatic opening doors and the annex and garage can now be used to park vehicles. Furthermore, new bushes have been placed on the Albergtal map which are also seasonable.

An update to the current PhysX 4.1 version is also included in this update. This fixed the shaking in light vehicles (AI traffic).

Furthermore, many bugfixes have been included in this update. All changes can be found in detail in the changelog.

There will be a status update at the end of July and end of August until V1 in September. We are currently working full steam ahead on the completion of the V1 and will introduce to you some of the content of the V1 in the upcoming status updates.
