Mack Anthem 2018 Sleeper Truck 1.0.0.0

FS 19 mods showcase: The great Mack Anthem sleeper truck, brought to Farming Simulator 19 by Stephan Beran (Custom Modding.) If you just want the download information, head to the end of this presentation.

This is the 2018 model of the Mack Anthem sleeper truck. It started out as a mod for American Truck Simulator. Now, it has been converted and updated for our favorite farming simulator game by Stephan Beran of Custom Modding. And it’s an outstanding mod.

Side note: Sleeper trucks have beds inside the cabin. Day cabs don’t have this option, in case you’re wondering what the term sleeper is all about…

Superb Modding

It takes a great deal of work, turning mods from other games, into working Farming Simulator models. Rarely, have I seen a conversion this good. The texturing and the programming are first-class. I’m particularly happy with all the shop options for the Mack. It’s almost like playing ATS.

One Example: The side skirt options.

Yes, it can receive connection hoses too.

You can add an extension to the roof.

What to Customize

When you’re going to treat yourself with a new Mack Anthem truck, you have a myriad of configuration options.

  • Colors – There are several colors for the body, the rims, and certain design elements.
  • Additional objects – You can add a bullbar to your Mack. Extra mirrors for the hood, sun visor, and an aerodynamic roof extension as well.
  • Wheels, Engines – You can toggle between 3 tire options and no less than 7 engine options.

On top of all this, you should also know that the 5th wheel is slidable. You can move it back and forth by using your mouse or a controller.

Make no mistake. This is great modding. Yes, the file size is more than 80 MB. But with this many details you’ll normally see 3-digit file sizes.

Having said that… If Stephan decides to go all in, doing high poly to low poly modelling to make use of normal maps, he’ll easily become one of the best Farm Sim modders ever.

  1. How come mods like this are able to be made for PC but not consoles? I understand licensing issues but are those also an issue for PC?

    • Hi Dylan, and thank you for commenting 🙂 This is a great question. I’m no legal expert, please have that in mind when reading my answer…

      In theory, all mod makers would need to get permission from the copyright holder when using established brands for mods. But it’s extremely rare that companies go after hobbyists. Many of the companies tend to appreciate the free advertising.

      The only example I know, of a company not being happy about mods, is Union Pacific. Some years ago they went after everyone who infringed their copyright in Train Simulator. They got support from the courts for their case.

      Creating free mods for a computer game will most likely not get you in trouble. But accepting payments for mods, without permission from the company, is a whole different story…
