How to get unstuck:
Once you are in a situation that you cannot move, AND you have trees around you, simply follow steps 1-6!

REMEMBER, your winch system only works when the truck engine is ON and running, also both trees and trucks can be used as anchors to pull you out. One thing to know is that a trucks parking brake must be on if stationary, but aditional pulling power may be needed, so hook up and pull that truck out of the mud!

Once Stuck follow these steps!

1. Activate Advanced Mode by hitting V on your keyboard. Advanced mode gives direct access to your heads up display or HUD, this should also give you a mouse cursor, and if you don’t see a mouse cursor then click the mouse to change from free camera mode to mouse cursor mode. One other thing, a circle will appear around your truck, this is the maximum range of your winch, so if there are no trees within it, then your really stuck! Other trucks can be used as ancors, simply choose another truck, drive close enough to one that is stuck, hookup to it and engage the parking brake
2. find the circle node icon on the front or back of your truck and mouse click it. (usually a left mouse click) The icon is usually grey so keep your eyes peeled!
3. Drag your mouse cursor to the desired tree location, angle, whichever you can get and click the circle node that is at the base of the tree. Now that you are fully connected lets continue!
4. Disengage Advanced mode by hitting the V key again. This lets you steer your truck and use the power of your engine and the winch at the same time! The abilities of the trucks are extremely limited if you just try to use the winch by itself, highly Not recommended.
5. Hold the F key and drive in the direction you wish to go and feel freedom at your fingertips! The F key engages the winch, but its power alone cannot save you from a muddy doom, you must drive forward or backward depending on how you are stuck. Remember that you can spin your tires just to get motion going, and winch yourself sideways!
6. Rinse and repeat this process until satisfied with the results, or if you have really gotten yourself in an even bigger mess.

These are the simple tools you need to know how to get out of the mud in Spintires. Follow the instructions on how to use the winch and success will be at your fingertips!
