Your endorsement from the toilet is pretty compelling Glen!

I've watched a few youtube clips and read lots of comments. Not many negatives from people, just like you say, needs some more objectives. but reading the comments there are plenty of ideas for the future.
the maps look massive, It looks pretty enough.. it looks part casual - part sim - part adventure. and Russian. can't say enough nice things about Russian computer games..

The only thing i have found as a let down with SpinTires (reading reviews) is that it does not have cockpit view :(

From the Q & A session with the devs sticky.
Q: Cockpit views?
A: Yup, planning on adding it.

Had a quick mess around with Spintires, Had a blast even though I had no idea what I was doing. Made it to a logging camp and things went down hill from there.
Totally rolled my load of logs. Story of my life.

No wheel support, yet which i hope happens soon.

Yes, but of cause my crane truck was miles away, let alone getting the dexterity to use the crane effectively.
Simple concept of moving shit from one place to another, very difficult in practice.

Ok I'm going to say spintires is a puzzle game mainly. a puzzle that you have to spend ages getting a few hundred meters in old trucks that aren't quite suitable for the terrain... A game of winching and getting bogged and winching some more.
  It's interesting and kinda casual. Not overly
I'd love to try some multi-player if anyone is up for carrying logs.

Found this G27 set up for it. If you follow his instructions you'll have no dramas.

Need to install a Xbox 360 emulator. Use the link from his youtube clip.

The break pedal acts as reverse which can be a bit annoying, probably need to mess around with the settings.

Spin tires update

Hello Everyone,

The update is now ready for download - boot up Steam and if you have the option selected for automatic download, Spintires will download on its own.

It has already been posted, but here is the list of items included in the update:

- Steering wheel support​ - Supports all steering wheels
- Bouncing rocks fixed
- Vehicle damage calculation more accurate (higher damage)
- Engine auto start when pressing accelerate
- "Engine stalling" progress bar looks changed
- ESC key (default game menu) can now be assigned/reassigned
- Analog Controller input

- Lobby buttons no longer grey out
- Ingame chat history and scroll
- Multiplayer inter-truck winch pulling improved
- Multiplayer trucks no longer fly through air when connecting

Not everything that was supposed to be in the update has been included - the reason is because some more work is required to finalize them.

Mod support has been postponed as the system that is being created for the core game is a bit more complex and it taking some more time than expected. It was decided to release the update without it rather than to postpone the entire update.

Information on the next update will be posted in due course, this will include the contents of the next update. We hope you will enjoy the new steering wheel support in the mean time.
