This guide was created to make it easier for you to find all the American Truck Simulator cheat codes, and not to launch the browser during the game to unnecessarily load the processor. Here I have collected almost all the codes that you might like and come in handy.

Turning on the console

First, to start the console, you need to go to this directory:

My Computer\Documents\American Truck Simulator

Then find the “config” text pad and open it.

American Truck Simulator - config.cfg File

Then find the value “uset g_developer“, “uset g_console

Next, change the value from “0” to “1” for both the options – this will enable developer mode and console.

After this procedure, you can enter the game. Use the tilde “~” to open the console.

Time and weather

g_set_time (number) – change time

g_set_time 1 – set the night.
g_set_time 12 – set daytime
Any value can be used from 0 to 23.

g_set_weather (number) – change the weather

g_set_weather 1 – set rainy weather.
g_set_weather 0 – set clear weather.


goto (city ​​name) – teleport to any city.

goto Stock – teleport to “Stockton” town
goto San – teleport to the city of “San Diego”

You can teleport to any city, only when you teleport, enter the name of the city in English.

The name of the city can be entered not with its full name, just a couple of the first letters are enough.

Free camera

American Truck Simulator

To enable a free camera, use the “0” button.
If you want to teleport to where you have a camera – press the “F9” button.

Important: when teleporting a car, keep in mind that if you are in the sky, the car will fall and receive damage, to avoid this, place the camera above the road. Also note that the car can be with a trailer.

g_flyspeed (number) – change the flight speed of the camera.

g_flyspeed 150 – set the airspeed to 150.
You can also control the speed of the free camera using the mouse wheel.

For anybody looking on how to teleport. They have changed the key since ATS v1.41+. You’ll need to delete F9 key under setting -> keys & buttons and remove F9 from []
Now you can teleport your truck with CTRL + F9 key

If you don’t remove/unbind F9 from under Route Adviser chat page. the Teleport wont work.
