Console and developer mode

In order to activate console and developer mode you must go to "Documents" and then to the "American Truck Simulator" folder. There you will find a file named config.cfg - open it using the notepad and find the "uset g_console 0" and "uset g_developer 0" line (you can use CTRL + F) and change their value from 0 to 1. You can open the console in the game by pressing the [~] key.

Free camera (camera "0")

In order to use "0" camera (free camera) you must press the key ([0] by default) during the game. To control the camera you can use mouse and the keys on the numerical keyboard.
