Truck Mechanic: Dangerous Paths Dev Diary #90

Hello Truck Mechanics!

Welcome to another exciting developer update. We’ve got some news about the progress of Truck Mechanic: Dangerous Paths. Buckle up and get ready for the latest developments on this wild ride!

Desert Map

We are pleased to announce the completion of our latest map set in a desert environment. In this map, players will assist with various tasks while helping archaeologists to uncover the history of an ancient civilization and help with desert reforestation. The new map features a range of challenges designed to engage and immerse. We put a lot of effort into its development, and we hope it will make quite an impression on you.


Today, we are introducing a new mechanic to enhance the strategic depth of our game: fuel management. Your trucks will no longer run indefinitely. Keeping an eye on your fuel levels and planning ahead will be essential to ensure you don’t run out of fuel mid-route.

Scattered across each map are various refueling stations. You will need to locate and utilize these stations to keep your trucks fueled up and ready for the journey ahead. This adds a new layer of strategy to the game, as you must plan your routes not only for efficiency, but also to ensure you have enough fuel to reach your destination. Fuel involves additional costs, so it will be worthwhile to do additional paid work to balance costs and revenues.

The day and night cycle

We have introduced the full implementation of the day and night cycle in our game. Following the preview in the prologue, this system features daytime followed by nighttime, bringing a dynamic and immersive experience. This new cycle affects visibility and gameplay, requiring players to adapt their strategies and plan their activities according to the time of day.

In order to facilitate gameplay, we plan to change the functionality of the flashlight and add it permanently to your inventory, in order to make it easier to find your way at night.

Additional Missions

With all main missions completed, we have started adding extra tasks to the game. These additional challenges provide new objectives and gameplay opportunities, diversifying your experience with various activities and rewards.

Stay tuned for more updates and keep on trucking! If you like what you see, consider adding Truck Mechanic to your Steam Wishlist!
