Driving in Bangladesh

Beta testing of Extreme Trucker 2 is well under way. In a previous post we have showed you a few scenes from Montana. Now let's focus on the other all-new map to appear in 18 Wheels of Steel Extreme Trucker 2. Here are several pictures from Bangladesh, you can find even more in our Extreme Trucker 2 beta testing facebook gallery.

We have received a few complaints that we put too much attention to this game, not giving you enough news about Euro Truck Simulator 2. Please be patient - right now, pretty much the entire SCS team concentrates on wrapping up this project. Yes, Extreme Trucker is a simpler, specific concept, aimed at a younger player, perhaps not deep enough for fans of the more complex Simulator line. But it's a very important project for keeping SCS Software in the business, and being able to continue working on the more serious simulation projects.

Soon we will shift our full attention to Euro Truck Simulator 2 finally, and we'll be happy to give you more news about what is happening with it. One little hint of good news coming soon is that we'll soon be starting on 3D models for dashboards and cabin interiors of Magnum, Premium and Actros - and we are pretty confident that the names and logos will be there in the final game!

Last but not least - don't forget to vote for your favorite fansite on the right side poll bar. We would like to get a feeling about the popularity of the various fans sites out there!

  1. I understand that times are hard especilaly on eastern europe where you are and me. So if this is an arcady game like et 1, ets 1 wiuld be possible to mod the physics for beter simulation? I'm asking this because with et1 or ets1, gts the moders couldn't make it much beter then standard but in et 2 you said that there will be the new physics engine. So can we do more with this new engine?

  5. The new screens look great, but I think the roads look to ok for that zone... you should make some bad roads with physical effect. Good luck!

  11. ETS2 use the prefabs from haulin series to be able to build complex road systems. Make it modder freindly to map makers. gizmosells

  12. Nice looking screenshots, aside from that horrible fh16 model you include in all your games.

    You keep asking for suggestions from us... Well, there is one thing I've been wandering about, regarding ETS2... When you showed us the Actros screenshots, the truck didn't have Actros badges. It had a MB logo, but no Actros badges. Is that deliberate? Are you going to make an R620 without an R620 badge, and an FH16 without an FH16 badge? Surely that would be sily. If you're going to use real logos, then please do us all a favour and do the real logos properly.

  13. nice screenshot scs

    my question is that when will u be able too set up an Extreme Trucker 2 website

  14. Nice pictures! I hope there is a money system, refueling and the ablity to buy trucks/trailers (stuff that was already there in previous games). it's enough to make the game much more interesting.

    I'm not sure if this further request is too much asking. SCS it would be wonderful if you could give us the file format specification(s) for the .pmg/.pmd/.tobj/.pma/.pdd. This would greatly advance modding of the game.

  15. we going to do multipleer?

  16. Nice job SCS, as usual. I've got one question: since Extreme Trucker 1 contained the ice roads from Canada(I read somewhere that you inspired from Ice Road Truckers older seasons), have you inspired from Ice Road Truckers Season 3 & 4, so that Extreme Trucker 2 will contain the roads from Alaska(Dalton Highway) ?

  17. how about a gameplay video on youtube !?

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'm hoping this Extreme Trucker 2 will be available to purchase in-store in California! I love the more simple approach of ET, one can go play for 10-15 minutes a time. It's great for short amounts of playing

  19. SCS! If you want to make trucks as realistic as possible, watch this videos (part 1 and 2) anout MB Actros, and it's functions! And DO NOT forget the retarder (the lever often found on the right side underneath the steering wheel please!

  30. Computer games provide an outlet for pent up anger (a good FPS can cure a bad day at the office), a community for like minded individuals (MMORPGs), a chance to do something that is impossible in real life (magic or super powers or play god with a house full of people), a chance to play sports with professionals on their team, a chance to play God, improve hand eye coordination, stretch imagination or problem solving, think strategically, balance economy, and really just improve skills in a way that is entertaining.
