Working on a presentation movie

We are now preparing a short presentation movie that we plan to show next week on our trip to Södertälje, Sweden. We will post the movie clip on SCS Software's YouTube channel once it's ready for you to enjoy, but for now, here are at least a few teaser snapshots from the video.

One of the images shows the play of light and shadow in the cabin. As everything in the world and the truck itself can cash shadows on everything else, the level of immersion behind the wheel is greatly increased compared to our previous games.

  2. Amazing! Please also dont forget to work on sounds, it's (second) most inportant element in game, and in your previous games it wasnt so well. It needs turbo and its sound, retarder and its sound, and I would love to have ability to buy tuneable horns!!! :) I believe this game will meet my exceptions.
    Best wishes

  10. Wow! Just wow! I'm so excited that I can't find proper words.

    There's only one thing that vitiate delight for me: is really necessary to use buildings we know from first ETS? I.e. that one on first picture, behind the tree - sincerely I hate these buildings after years of meeting them in every city of ETS and GTS. :-D I hope large set of new buildings is prepared and we meet those old ones more rarely.

    Still, awesome pics. Level of detail is incredible and those shadows and everything... can't wait for that mentioned video. ;-)

  16. So,the HDR is not implemented yet?I know it's not that important, but if you've mentioned it.Anyways it looks nice.Personally I'd rather not see these old trees, roads and textures in final game:)Just my two cents:)

  24. Congratulations for your outstanding work ... The images show a game better every day. Congratulations on the effort to please fans of the series ETS. Would greatly appreciate it if informace whether there is the possibility of double trailers used in a system similar to the Extreme Trucker 2. It would be good for us Brazilians have this possibility, because our roads are full of double and triple trailers, and increase our chances of publication. The system need not be in use in the game, may be only for use moders.

    The shadow system took the game to a higher level, for sure.

    Thanks

  25. Every teaser I get more impatient to buy the game :D Great work SCS! Models, shadows, reflections looks amazing, specially the truck!
    What about sound improvements?
    Keep on with the awesome production!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Great job, SCS!
    I think there will be again the combination between flares and mats for the lights of the truck, won´t be? PLEASE, it would be awesome, if there will be available the same light system for trailer. This would be make the rearlights more real and the community can make maybe more things for the mod-trailer.
    And yes, it´s really great, that the "front-mirror" finally works - I like the shadows, too.
    Looking forward your movie. ;)

    With best regards

  27. And PLEASE, PLEASE don´t forget the DOUBLE! I think the Double-Function is very very important for the EU!

  28. Great job SCS!!! A question if I may: Is there going to be cabin suspension in any of the trucks?

    Thanks guys, have a good one

    ReplyDelete
  29. That looks fantastic, and i was just going to say the axle configuration in the previous editions made it harder to turn corners, most trucks are 6 to 7 wheel drive so turning tight bends is still a challenge but easier with all wheels turning the same time. FANTASTIC! i cant wait for this game, really and truly.

  30. SCS, you are master of pc truck games...

    F A N T A S T I C!! They're very close to the reality... It's still missing the 8x4 tractor. I'm also waitin' for the movie... hum... of course, we're talking about Europe... but an EURASIA map... wouldn't be possible??
    Waitin' for the next posts.

  36. OMG :| this is to beautiful to be real :((((

    ReplyDelete
  37. Good job SCS! I want that in ETS2 the road be single, because I hate the big road with three rails! I love the single roads, so in ETS2, Put a lot of SINGLE ROADS PLEASE!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Really Great job ! and those extra mirror's will those be buyable or will they be there on the truck when you buy it ?

    And Nice that you are coming to sweden, to bad you going to Södertälje you should come to Gävle instead, just 3 miles from me.

    And the last thing. Do so you can those from summer and winter and make it be winter and summer with the time you play.

  39. @Fábio:
    Second axis is OK. That's how it works on real life, unlike some mods do on SCS games (they just use the game's steering system, so both wheels steer the same).

    If you noticed, even special transport trailers with multi-axle steering have this effect. The last axis steers the most, but the other axis' steering is less and less until the last wheel is with no steering.

    If all wheels steer the same, then the truck wouldn't turn, it would move in diagonal. If a vehicle has to turn, only the fron wheels have to steer. That's why secondary wheels steer less.

    @SCS: Thanks for posting. Can't wait to see the video (anyway I see I will have to edit *again* the whole map in this game to make the roads have a realistic size!)

  40. OMG, I'M SPEECHLESS!! FINALLY SWEDEN!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Superb!!!

    nevertheless can i suggest to you to rectify these following errors i noticed in the first ETS ( ignore that if done...):
    - traffic lights sequence , indeed the good sequence is(green then orange then red and green then orange then red ,etc...) and not( green then orange then red then red and orange at the same time then green, etc...)
    - when inside the cabin , the cabin is too high in comparaison to others truck's cabin...
    - Problem of sliding when the truck is in a bend

    Some suggestions for ETS 2:

    - optional display for steering wheel
    - Set up for the highness of the driver's seat
    - no aliasing if possible
    - interaction with all environement
    - Management of damages

    Hoping that my critics will help you to improve the future ETS 2

    Myself i cant wait , i am very exiting that ETS2 is released
    very very nice work SCS,congratulation for the work you do and good wishes

  46. Mirrors looking very realistic! Very very good job.

  47. SINGLE ROAD IN EURO TRUCK SIMULATOR 2 PLEASE.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Looking great, although the in cab screenshot reminds me of one of the most anoying features in these truck games, and this is that some trucks in cab speed-o-meter does not match the HUD speed-o-meter. That used to drive me crazy and i really hope its fixed for ETS2 :D

    ReplyDelete
  49. Great! I think we must see the driver hands in the steering wheel,gearbox, and another thinks (turn the light on/off , turn engine on/off...)
    It was nice if the game got it.

    sry about my english ;)

    ReplyDelete
  50. make the logitech g 27 controller system work with this game pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! it would be then the most awesome game ever!

    ReplyDelete
  51. The visual aspects looks like some extreme improvements compared to ETS.
    This is very very nice.
    But, how about the physics?
    Will you improve this area (a lot), and if so what could we expect?
    Maybe we should start saying PhysX? :) :)

    Loving the dev blog,
    thank you SCS

    ReplyDelete
  52. has the engine sound and gear ratios improved?

    ReplyDelete
  53. Congratulation SCS software.
    All trucks in the game screenshots appears to be real.And please include the grip of the trucks as in ETS it was too bad at corners.Please lessen the no. of round abouts and increase the number of signals.Please include more single roads.
    Please give about the system requirement.
