American Long Haul featured on Steam!

18 Wheels of Steel American Long Haul is featured as "Today's Deal" on Steam right now.

This is quite surprising for us, considering that Steam has refused to carry Trucks & Trailers. Well maybe they will reconsider if they see good old ALH to sell a few copies during this promo sale? It's really great deal if you have passed on the game so far... ;-)


  1. They refused to carry it? Silly people, what could it possibly harm to do carry that? .c:

    Sometimes decisions like that make no sense at all, heh! (c:

  2. Did not know that steam have very hard policy for accepting games. Did you send them any demo so they can test and review?

    Maybe they do not want European truck games and want instead American truck games. Maybe if you make American truck simulator next time you have better luck.

    Scs do not forget your old truck games they have many bugs and need fix and patches and updates.

    I'm sure you weren't paying attention to the name of the game "American Long Haul"?
    Congratulations! Looking forward to the next game to be displayed on that site!

  4. No worries devs. An indie game I _really_ like also hit Steam only some half a year after its original premier. Sooner or later, you can strike a deal with Valve too, I'm pretty sure about that!

  5. Sorry BUT Steam is Shit....

  6. I got ALH when it was on sale a year ago. Aside from the bugs it was fun.

    It's sad to hear about Trucks & Trailers.

  7. That's great, many congratulations! :-) I bought ALH years ago, but I'll suggest this special offer to some of my friends.

  8. well if the sales do good scs software you should make anther USA ALH/hualin game but with the graphics ect of ET2 and game play

  9. SCS, I wrote a thousand e-mails for you asking for a simple fix pacth for ALH and you never answered me. Some fixes that you will make in 1 hour, no more and would make your fans happy. Would be appropriate demonstrate more considering for yous customers because the ALH has bugs and I think that you must correct them.

  10. 18 wos PTTM > 18 wos Haulin > 18 wos Across America > 18 wos ALH > 18 wos convoy

    Nuff said.

    (and yes I played all of them)

  11. 18 WoS Convoy is better!

  12. I completely agree with Anonymous (May 19, 2011 10:40 AM). No wonder, your games are full of bugs which nobody repairs (f.e. Extreme Trucker 2), but don't forget that the players spent their money for them because they still believe you are making the games for the players who will pay for good game not as "Buy our game and then don't bother us" :-)

  13. Alh new patch update?
    My system

    Windows 7 64 bit..
    Cpu INTEL Core2 Quad Q9650 4x3.0GHz
    Ram.4.00 Gb 800 Mhz.
    Graphics Card.Nvidia Zotac Gtx 480 Amp
    Alh my system problem...Sorry scs

  14. Anonymous 1:31 PM: Nobody repairs bugs? Come on, man! Yes, truth is that ALH have few minor bugs. So as ET2 - in this case, not minor. Two games. But look at all other (truckin') games in SCS history. Every game was patched several times, and not only because of bugs, some patches (especially in Euro series) added extra functions too. ;-)

  15. There are tens of thousands of casual driving fans like myself who were let down by Atari's TDU2. I used to play all the SCS trucking games but when TDU 1 was released, its bigger maps and better cockpit immersion made SCS games look like little more than quick diversions. Now that TDU 2 has been a disappointment and Atari is likely to let it die, there is a huge niche market that's looking for driving immersion, and many in that niche are avid Steam users.

    GTS pulled me in and didn't let go. I never really enjoyed driving trucks but GTS makes me enjoy every minute spent in its immersive cockpits. ALH will miss that orphan niche market, GTS or UKTS would convert many skeptics.

  16. Anonymous May 19, 2011 2:00 PM: You're right and I appreciate it, but everybody has own opinion on that. I've played the most of SCS truck games because I'm a truck fan. Because I've bought all these games for my money, I expect some basic player support (see for example Restanho May 19, 2011 12:46 PM). I know some major bugs were repaired but more other bugs weren't. I know there were added the new roads and locations to ETS2, but the driving model isn't always good (trucks are swimming on the roads etc.). I know there has been repaired one "invisible wall" in 18ALH, but one still remains at fuel station near Washington etc. etc. For example if I had "pirated" the SCS games it would have been all the same to me. But in this case it isn't. It could be a basic decency to communicate with the players and if it's possible hearing to their entreaties not only hype the new game although I believe it will be the best of all their games. That's all.

  17. Great, release T&T, ETS2 thro steam. Less chance of piracy.

  18. Lauhging, Great... Nice story.

    You have a point there, Steam did kinda f*** that game up ;(

  23. Hi SCS!

    I'm really surprised that Steam refused to carry Trucks & Trailers. From what I've seen so far, Truck & Trailers is going to be a very nice and entertaining game. Did they give any good reason for the refusal?

    I hope they come to their senses and change their mind about it.


  24. Scs, can you post more videos on youtube of all trucks among other things?
    Thanks very much.

  25. More and various.

  26. Hey SCS Soft!

    What about the trucks customization?
    New infos, pics, videos??

    There is no news about this since long time!
