SCS Software's games mentioned in Fernfahrer Magazine

It is not very often that mainstream media cover our games. In fact, it is not very often when even gaming media do. But now, thanks to activities of our German publishing partner rondomedia, we should get a mention in a highly regarded publication for German transportation industry professionals and enthusiasts, the Fernfahrer Magazine.

We were asked to prepare a few screens a couple of weeks ago for the occasion, and we though why not share a couple of them with you as well.

  2. The Volvo is pretty awesome but the trailer is as always, I like that new trailers were made, especially to change the back, are very simple.

    Does the company Fernfahrer going to get in the game or it was only for that promotion? is good idea to get promotion and the media interest in this great game.

    One thing, I like that the plate of the truck outside the country where you bought the truck. Greetings.

  4. You should rebuild the trailers. You could build some nice Schmitz, Koegel and Krone trailer

    Look at Globetrotter I think it's need to change because now looks strange

  10. Nice, but the wheels of the trailer are very big than the wheels of the truck, both wheels are the same in the reality.

    Regards

  11. Nice.But pity that no trailers are more realistic, but they are the same as in German Truck Simulator. ;(

  19. As noted above, where the missing windshield wipers.
    Make the skins, which would have stained the plastic parts of the truck, like this:

    http://www.yiparts.com/2008/pic/modelpic/VOLVO/FH16/2008aug01-4892783144d51.jpg

    And very much like to see new models of trailers.

    What would you think of mudflaps with brandlogo's? ;)

    Screenshots look nice.

  24. this game will be only in widescreen rosolution like Extreme Trucker 2? or it will have a 4:3 resolution?

    ReplyDelete
  25. hi nice work like evrything about the pics but the trailer is old and out dated make some improvments that would like to see.

    keep up the good work scs

    ReplyDelete
  26. The roof needs a little bit of attention, because it follows the curvature of windshield, as you can see in some pics above. In the images posted, the roof hasn't the same alignment with windshield,you can see it clearly in the post "wheels" (Feb. 1st post). But the rest is amazing and I don't see any problem with trailers!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hello... SCS team!! Very nice!! Marvelous!! Except for one thing - the tractors are very nice, beautiful... but the trailers... just like the GTS... i hope that there are improvements on the trailers. I'd still like to see in ETS 2:
    - Double-trailers
    - 8x4 tractors
    - a complete european map - with the most important cities of each country
    - single roads and autoban
    - multiplayer

    Keep on with your work scs!!
    And please... i hope to see a next movie as soon as possible with all your progress and with sound!!

  28. Good night SCS

    Again, congratulations on the job. Good to know the recognition of the journal Fernfahrer about the games. Increases visibility of the game and encourages potential players.

    Could inform us about the licenses of trademarks to the game. Any company has shown real intention to release the brand to use? It would be nice to know that.

    One thing that you can help is to make requests for players who know one of the makers, to ask, and to send e-mails asking for, from everyone who accessed the blog. Disclose screens with images of the brands already modeled for you can help, because the rich detail of the trucks encourages the release of the marks. Have luck in this endeavor.

    And another key thing we will have double trailers? Please say yes ..

    Graciously

  30. Geez... Does not people play the game in 1st person wiev, or what?

    Some of the demands posted here are just plain ridiculous, i mean the curve of the roof just can't be that important when you spend 99% of the time playing with a view from inside the truck, or can it really?

    Ok for trying at matching reality as much as possible, but come on.

  31. better to make these kinds of real cockpits, which are constantly before the eyes of a gamer

  37. When will be the new vegetation's pictures?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Everything perfect, just the trailers should be redone

    ReplyDelete
  39. SCS make new trailers for ETS2, please! Schmitz Cargobull, Krone etc.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Folks if you really badly want double or triple or even quadriple trailers, go put your credit cards to use and buy Extreme Trucker 2, and you can drive all the road trains you want!

    Not to mention it's a great game all-around.
    Also, any readers of reddit or otherwise are very much welcome to join the recently founded truck sim subreddit: reddit.com/r/trucksim


    Go SCS!

  41. I really like the truck, it's a perfect copy of the real one, Volvo can be proud of you. But when I was you, I should surely rebuild the trailers. The axles and wheels are good, but I like to see a palletbox and a lower rear bumper. And I'd like to see other special trailers, more than in GTS and UKTS. And perhaps you can make the Dutch LZV's, in English LHV (Long Heavy Vehicles) or Ecocombi's. When you search for it with google you shall see what I mean.

    ReplyDelete
  42. You keep me impressed with every post you make.

    And agreed, a couple of LHVs as special cargo would be nice, though not imperative. :)

  43. ETS2 year I want to see six fold down truck cab and hold open doors and six more as many videos and pictures

    ReplyDelete
  44. You all should wait for the game and don't think SCS software can do everytihing that quick. Some people talk here like they are the boss. It's for SCS software itself to decide everything. So be patient everybody.

    P.S. Nice work SCS

    ReplyDelete
  45. Though, Emre, we are the ones paying for the game.

    Indeed, SCS has the power to decide over the project. But to make people buy a game, it's always best to hear the opinions of the gamers.

    Good luck SCS!

  46. scs please more realistic ports and ships for trucks.

  47. Nice truck.. hope you are still working on a trailers....

    ReplyDelete
  48. English:

    emre, the customer pays - the customer requires. But I agree with your words, some comments are commands for SCS :/ Ladies and gentelmen, take it easy! Keep in mind that the game is in the production stage. SCS is well aware that trailers aren't good but let's enjoy that they made such a huge step compared to them previous games. I'm very happy about that. Good luck in your future work, I waiting with other fans on the new information concerning the ETS2.

    Have a nice day :)

    Greeting from Poland, Mr. Ferrari.

    Polski:

    emre, klient płaci - klient wymaga. Ale zgadzam się z Tobą, niektóre komentarze wyglądają jak rozkazy dla SCS :/ Szanowni Państwo, wyluzujcie! Należy pamiętać, że gra jest w fazie produkcji. SCS dobrze wie, że przyczepy nie są dobre ale cieszmy się, że zrobili tak duży krok w stosunku do ich poprzednich gier. Jestem bardzo zadowolony z tego powodu. Życzę powodzenia w dalszych pracach, czekam wraz z innymi fanami na nowe informacje dotyczące ETS2.

    Miłego dnia :)

    Pozdrowienia z Polski, Mr. Ferrari.

  51. Great work so far SCS . The game will rock ! But , I have some suggestions for you and I don't think is that hard to do . First : Improve the rain effect . And it will be nice if there was some water on the road after the rain . 2nd : Make some holes in the asphalt . And sounds in the cabin when you drive .

    Good luck !

    ReplyDelete
  52. I can see why Canada is the politest country...come on people not even a please...or even a thank you, i mean they put ALOT of work into these games and all i see here is rude requests!....requests are fine but

    "genu said...
    ETS2 year I want to see six fold down truck cab and hold open doors and six more as many videos and pictures"

    THAT is just down right rude!!! i mean i would LOVE to see you make a model that can do all of that AND run on a average computer...i mean Atari even fell short of that for TDU2(which is a MUCH MUCH MUCH higher budget of a game i bet)! do you REALLY expect a small studio to do such a thing


    For SCS size they are doing a AMAZING job, i bet hardly any of you even KNOWS what goes into making a game, Im a student at BCIT studying Game development and 3D modeling...the models they are producing would take at least a month to even get it as detailed as they are...and dont even get me started on the mapping and the texturing/programming the are doing!! Look at ALL of the improvements they are making to the now ancient Prism 3D engine ((well i assume they are still using the prism 3D engine)), the new physics, graphics, vegetation generation and even the optimization i bet they are doing to the engine....this game SHOULD technically cost about 60$ per copy from what they have done ALREADY. Before you come on here and attack SCS/demand go play a their older games like Haulin or PTTM (or convoy for that matter *shudders*) and you will see the impovment's they have made to the engine between Haulin and ETS!!


    Anywho keep up the amazing job, if even half the gaming companys worked as hard as you guys have been...well there would be alot less crappy games!

  54. Yes! Agree! Rain should be more realistic :) Good luck SCS!

    ReplyDelete
  55. You should add one thing and improove two

    You should add snow and frozen road in game to be more realistic.Also as other people said you should rebuilt some trailers..Built some schwarzmüller some krone and some schmitz

    I can't wait the release of the game!!!!

    One question:The trucks are gonna be the same in GTS or they will be the same like the first ETS?

    KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK SCS!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  63. WHY cant ppl do just what most ppl do...go and download mods!! i mean its not life threating that they dont have have perfect trailer models.i wish the stock trailers that came with haulin were half as good as that trailer lol....seriously ppl stop sound like a 1 track record...im sure they have figured out by now that you guys all want a new trailer...the game is still prebeta im sure if they want to they have enough time!
