Trucks & Trailers & the last few weeks

The clock is ticking, and the deadline that we have committed to is fast approaching - we need to finish the work on the game quite soon. We still have a lot of ideas on how to make the game better and more fun to play and replay, but at one point we'll need to say "enough" - this is good enough for version 1.0. The game has already been announced for release into the retail chains by our territorial distributors, and we had better deliver on time.

Depending on how well you guys receive the game, we are thinking of reserving some capacity for adding new features to the game post-release. Not just bug fixing, but actually supporting the game with major new features. Some of the things we would like to try in the T&T setting are just too tempting. We may not be able to get them into the initial release of the game, but we may develop them over time. Now let's just hope that the game will not bomb in sales - we would be in trouble and less inclined to invest more time and effort (=money) into the project.

  4. stop babbling about that weird trucks&trailers game. WE WANT ETS2, NOT SOME BORING GAME ALL ABOUT LOADING AND UNLOADING CARGOS.
    We want to drive, not park. Of course, loading/unloading is a part of that too, but we don't need an own game for it! gash

  10. Looks good SCS. To all that aren't happy with this game just think, it's a chance to learn modding techniques for ETS2 and trial some of the new features.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Fingers crossed for you, guys! Hope there are many people out there to really appreciate your work, not these lunatics obsessed with some narrow brain ideas!

    ReplyDelete
  12. no map this game trucks & trailers is like extreme trucker 1 and 2, but ETS 2 (when its released), you will be able to drive over the map and buy trucks etc etc...

    but the deadline date is not set because its not a deadline for us for the release it a deadline for the scs team to get the get finish for release, i hope you get what i mean

    WE DONT NEED Trucks & Trailers

    ReplyDelete

  17. Trucks & Trailers is just money making, these features are in ETS2 anyway so why buy Trucks & Trailers? set your force but, rather, is in ets2, you say you did not always enough leute.Trucks & Trailers is just money making. and we want to pedestrians in ets2

  18. Would it not be good to add the idea of T&T to ETS2 to allow shunting. This would allow you to take a break from delivering and driving and earn some extra cash doing some yard shunting.

    ReplyDelete
  19. i think this is boring, why make this?

    ReplyDelete
  20. I will give it a try. Doing some yard work will give me time to pratice my reversing.I hope there are a few things for UK driver in it,even if it is just a couple of right hand drive trucks and interiors.Will it be downloadable from first release? as here in the UK the boxed version always takes months to be available. One other thing.Is the the Scania licensed now, or will it be changed to swift?

  24. Looks interesting, hopefully the time margins are not too narrow, though. Safety before speed, after all!

    So, any date for release yet? Or at least "a month" or such?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Do not put pedestrians in ETS2!!

    This will make the game even worse and with more bugs and lags.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Pls make "a no haste" mode in ETS 2, or possibility to turn off completely a time for delivering cargos (or loose it as much as possible) to make the game more meditative. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Well as people are saying. Don't spend too much time on this game, it will be shortlived, since its a very narrow game, you just park trailers. Put all your efforts on ETS2!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Agreed. FPS drop in cities is annoying (ATS/ETS/GTS).
    More ROADS, ROADS, ROADS! And Please! make a couple straight and long roads. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  29. ETS2 pedestrians should not be deserted cities.
    Solution:
    Ghost pedestrians. Can not run over pedestrians, or if you run over pedestrians to be very, very serious consequences.
    For example:
    - Very, very high money penalty
    - Driving disqualification x period, but the drivers continued to carry
    - Reputation of serious deterioration.

  30. I will be buying Trucks & Trailers definitely. I need a lot of practice in reversing and parking the trailers.
    Keep up the amazing work SCS Software team and I hope that you will make lots of money in sales.
    I have been a proud SCS Software supporter and I will continue my future support 100%.

  35. Guys! Buying this game we give to SCS Software the opportunity to develop ETS2 with more money and better! In addition we will have the opportunity to try out the new graphics engine! I am sure I will buy Trucks & Trailers ;)

  36. Hi SCS!

    One of the things I love most about truck games is the challenging maneuvering in tight spaces at the destinations. I'll definitely will be buying Truck & Trailers and recommending it to all of my friends. I hope you include these kind of challenges in ETS 2 too. I think it's a great idea for a game and I'm sure many agree.

    As a sim gamer I would still like to have option to get rid of those arcade signs in the game (the sign which shows where you have to park the trailer). It just kills the immersion and realism. Please include option to remove arcade destination sign, or for example replacing it with a more subtle marking on the ground instead of this huge hovering arcade object.

  37. T&T's Release Date?

    ReplyDelete
  38. As a (probably impossible to achieve) idea:
    couldn't you make T&T's environments and overall game-play as a module that can be added to ETS's mainframe, like an add-on? A place where the player could earn his/her initial cash, so he/she can buy a more expensive, more powerful truck for the main game?
    And, if we're talking pedestrians, don't forget the gypsies for the main European cities :D Realism would be suffering if they were missing.

  39. station to be able to talk with others about road traffic participants, such as weather, road, police would be wonderful
