A new year and several announcements from SCS: Idaho State for ATS and the Iberian Peninsula for ETS2! This should be a good year with new states and countries to discover. Blackjack Logistics continues to go from strength to strength after having a successful 5th year anniversary in 2019. As all of our driver slots are ful, we will soon be opening up to individuals and other VTC's to undertake sub-contracting work, with some Blackjack awards along the way. Work continues behind the scenes with skinning of new trucks and trailers for both games as well as modding existing/new ones. After 1.37 is released, Blackjack's will also release their weather and graphics package to drivers. Stay tuned! :)
With Christmas fast approaching, SCS have just released the new dlc 'Road to the Black Sea'. This will enable us drivers to now venture further South, taking in countries such as Romania, Bulgaria and the European part of Turkey. There will be many new assets included which will be a boom to us map builders! Soon be time for the XMas challenge!
Autumn has come already and brought with it some fantastic updates and upgrades for the game. The recent Oregon DLC for ATS has proven to be a hit, particularly the introduction of logging companies on a large scale. Update 1.32 drastically changed the freight market with the introduction of ownable trailers. This has enabled us to create specific ownership skins for our drivers for some nice truck/trailer combinations (although updating to the new 'defs' has been a headache!) Our drivers are also looking forward to the next ETS2 DLC, 'Beyond the Baltic Sea'. Hopefully this will bring the same logging elements as Oregon has to ATS (and will keep driver Mikeb happy!) Further updates in house will be an overhaul of all stock truck skins along with the regular tweeks to the company packs. Soon be time for the XMas challenge!
Time has flown by again!! It's been another successful year for BlackJack Logistics, with lots of great additions and updates to both ETS2 and ATS (some of which has given a few modding headaches!) Recently, we have seen the addition of extra heavy trailers with steerable back axles introduced and the subsequent company skins applied to them along with the many modded truck updates. Company packs continue to be updated to cater for both games, especially after the recent map updates. BlackJack Logistics continues to grow with the recruitment of two new drivers, Mike and Phil. On the cards next is the introduction of some new style trailers along with some bespoke mapping to include a large and unique major BlackJack Depot (and many hours in ZMod!!)
Lots of exciting developments here at BlackJack Logistics HQ! American Truck Simulator has rolled out, our skinned fleet of trucks and unique trailers have grown along with our own company pack now in full swing! Furthermore, we have been busy with creating new trailers in zmodeler/Blender for our drivers which can be found no where else. Recently, we have also seen the release of ProMods 2.0, which has greatly enhanced ETS2. Now that ATS is released, we are working on the creation of a bespoke ATS company pack, new skins for those Peterbilt and Kenworth trucks and the skinning the US trailers. Watch this space!
Where does the time go! Our fleet has been replaced and rebranded in a shiny new livery (see details in the Fleet section), along with the fuel stations and large garage. Furthermore, some exciting trailer and map mods have been introduced into BlackJack Logistics with the creation of a Bulk Liquids Div and BlackJack Logistics Nord for the Scandanavian DLC. Last month also saw the addition of a new driver, Wolfman. We have our work cut out as some of us venture into creating a new and unique company depot and garage as a main base of operations in-game. Mapping and 3D modding, here we come!
May has come and nearly gone! This month saw a new driver to the company, Tank, so lots of welcomes. The Scandanavia DLC has been a big hit here at BlackJack Logistics with drivers clambering over each other for job loads on the new maps, along with a shiny new Mercedes Actros!
The new rewards scheme has been rolled out, with 'Ace' cards being awarded for many different aspects of the game (and some being rather 'tongue in cheek' for fun!). June sees the start of the new monthly contract scheme for the company; June is 'Supermarket Sweep month' with the firm being awarded the contract for many high street supermarket chains. Drivers, please note, extra points will be awarded!
Company stats are now live, along with regular traffic updates. Drivers can now upload their screenshots of loads with their logging form and can also upload in-game screen shots to the public gallery.
Website menu streamlined. Driver login and logging of loads to the database is now live! Also, check out our new promotional video on the about us page. To come: collation of data from the sever to display stats on front page along with bespoke driver pages.
