At the moment for the game Euro Truck Simulator came a lot of different modifications that in some way change the game, making it better, more interesting and varied. These mods can change absolutely different aspects of the game: graphics, gameplay, balance, models, landscape, tasks, interface, and so on. Of course, each modification requires proper installation. For most mods you only need to copy the file to the correct folder and confirm the activation of this mod in the game.
First you need to download the mod itself. Clicking on the mod's page, you save it to your computer. Mods are downloaded in the archives, so after downloading, mod need to open an unarchiver like WinRAR or 7-zip. The archive will have exact mod files and readme files, which, in fact, is the installation manual of the mod. In most cases, the files should be unzipped into the folder:
If the file with such name already exists, you will first need to make copies of them (in case of conflict), then replace the existing files with new ones.
Now, start the game and, after the Euro Truck Simulator 2 logo animation intro, at the profile selection screen, choose your profile and click Mod manager.
If the mod files are correct, you should see them in the right hand list. Activate them by clicking the checkbox next to their name. You can activate them all, only a few or none.
Confirm your choice by clicking Apply and then click Continue.
Simple steps to install ETS2 mods:
- download the mod;
- copy the file with the extension .scs in My Documents/Euro Truck Simulator/mod folder
- start the game, go to your profile, see the Mod manager and activate the mod.
Enjoy the game!
