In the Euro Truck Simulator 2 it’s quite easy to install mods.
- Browse to My Documents\Euro Truck Simulator 2
- Browse to mods – create the folder if it does not exist
- Extract the .scs files into this folder (not a subfolder, ie: My Documents\Euro Truck Simulator 2\mods\modfile.scs
- Run the game, the mods will now load
Many of the instructions for installing mods just say “extract to this folder” but by doing that you end up creating another folder inside the mod folder. If the .scs files are in a sub folder than they will not load.
After that you need to activate the mods you want to use (in ets 2 version 1.3+ you’ll have to enable the mods manually. When choosing your profile, click on edit profile, on the right you’ll see a list of the mods that you’ve put in the mods folder pick the ones you want, some may not work especially if they are old. The bad ones will crash your game):
Mods are usually in .scs format files, but sometimes mod files can be compressed in .zip and .rar archives.
Unpack using 7zip or WinRar.
