If this was the only thing to come from the update, I would still be applauding. Excellent stuff.

Please fix the lights on the Tatra 813 (Xbox, Lights on the extra cage dont work)

Exciting info! Thank you for sharing

How large is the max image waight you can upload in this forum ?? i posted this on reddit and couldnt post same picture here

And improvements and increments for the Volante (ex G29) when will they arrive? I'm going to die of old age by the way and nothing will be done: '(

Updated modbrowser on PTS is totally buggy now. Mods are loading forever, can't really get them to work, only once I could activate them ingame so far...

Also: Both new trucks are not in the shop, if you discover them on the new maps and recover them to garage they are just gone...

I can't get Phoenix out of the second map.
Either way I try, I fail. It just disappears!
Even if I want to cross the border properly and even if I send it straight to the garage.

@bellerophon You are not alone
I have the same issue even re-installed PTS and still the same exact problem.

@Jóska-Pista @Daywalker702 that seems to be intentional
Maybe Saber does not want PTS players to post screenshots of the new trucks all over the web before the content is officially released? 😜

This post is deleted!

So instead there are multiple videos now on You-Tube showcasing the trucks. Go there if you want to see them.

So in 2021 we still don't have flying cars, but flying buildings is a thing ? ok.

Hello .. The mod browser is absolutely unusable since update to version from Yesterday 15.0 only 9 mods are offered for download and the download then takes endless! Please new update !!

@mendel Thank you for your response but unfortunately that does not address my issue, my problem is that I get infinite loading in the mod browser when attempting to access and activate mod vehicles and maps. I have re-installed the PTS twice since the latest update, it worked perfect just like in the base game before the most recent update.

That is the exact problem that I'm having mod browser only showing 1 page of 9 mods when I select Subscribed mods only and it just keeps loading and never allows to actually turn on any mods regardless of how you filter them.
