Simplified paintjob creation

Euro Truck Simulator 2 should allow for a novel way to customize truck paints without having to go the hardcore route and re-create the whole truck texture from scratch. The game will ship with a selection of proto-paintjobs - patterns encoded in RGBA channels of an image - and the player will be able to assign any color value to any of the channels. This way anybody can easily get a vast number of paintjob combinations for his truck fleet without having to use any mods, just using the built-in functions of the game.

The images below are an illustration of this approach - they are all based on the same pattern, the same proto-paintjob, with different colors chosen.

  14. That is simply amazing and just what we need to make our trucks our own. Thankyou SCS.

    Do you think you could allow us to put a company name on the front of the truck too.

  18. SCS.... great work so far, i'm and many more your fans are realy impressed about your work. Though many of us would like to know what kind of the feautures will be in this new amazing sim.

    Could you guys meaby give us sneak preview of what kind of new functionality (feautures) already made in the game and what will be as an wish to add. (for example you showed last ROADWORK )

    Many of us would realy like to know.

    Just seperate in 2 sections:

    1)the things what already are done and will be in game

    2)The things what are curently desired to be iplemented in game but NOT promising that it will be in game after release.

    At this point i think you could resive good feedback about some things...... who knows meaby even new idea's as well.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I hope, I can change the registration plates! So no Scania has the same license plate!


    BUT now the praise:-) ;

    But please make a USED TRUCK MARKED!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. nice work but very little said about actual gameplay . I hope thats not going to be a let down as that is even more important than the looks of the trucks and scenery . i hope its been expanded with the ability to own our own haulage compnay and not just drive one truck round Europe like ETS1 was

    ReplyDelete
  36. about the paint job can you do a place in garage where we can customize our trucks after we own a company like in German Truck Sim or even before that where we could create our own stickers and to be able to write something on trucks like our own company name after that the company is released:d
    please;)
    best regards
    good luck

    ReplyDelete
  37. @ eduard_fcgb

    YES... Thats right!

    Trucks With the Companyname must be!

    ReplyDelete
  38. That's great. But I'm pro skinner, so it makes no sense for me.

    Btw, SCS, many countries has dipped lights at daytime requirement, can it be in ETS2?
    Oh, almost forgot, at the beginnings of the game, after choosing a country, trucks must have that country number plate. AI too (differennt country plates).

    Antiradar/Radar detector would be good, like in the first "18 WOS" series and of course more police, not only speed cameras.

    Illegal cargoes (smuggling), like drugs, cigarettes, girls... :O (like in the "King of the Road")


    Bigger map please. (Driving across the CZ lasts >30 min)

    SCS, I hope you will see it, think about it, and keep up the good work! ;)

    Greetings from Lithuania (hope you will add it to the map :D)

  39. Work more on the roof of the truck.

  40. Euro Truck Will there be snow in the game

    ReplyDelete
  41. i have no words!!!simply perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I have a strange feeling about licence plates! ;)
    And, of course: Hey, Volvo people, give SCS permission to use the brand! That truck looks awesome! Pleeeeeeeeaaaaasee!!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Looks like we are going to have wires connected to the trailer.

    ReplyDelete
  44. This is a great great job scs. This game will be awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I literally cannot believe some of the people that comment on your work SCS. You guys are the only ones to produce games in the truck niche which is commendable and some people have to cheek to come on here and DEMAND that you implement multi player or that you MUST show more gameplay videos etc.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Speaking of mods and modding in general. Will your game still be open to user created content, and can we expect a map editor as with previous iterations ?

    ReplyDelete
  47. Excellent work. I'm sure I'll be addicted for hours.

    Thanks for posting this news.

    Looking forward for next news! (:

  49. John,
    I really can not understand those people who are enthusiastic about the news about the simulation, although they note that the SCS is the only good producers of commercial simulators - a contradiction, is not it? Indeed, to understand what they are good developers simulators are needed for this proof in the form of gaming promotions, featurs. Playing with the new models is not a game. Do not be so naive.

    By the way, SCS said that he would support modeling by the game and means game. Simulation and so will not go away! But the gameplay will be based in conscience only one developer - SCS! Include the brain, the commentators.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Just wondering but... is the new Mercedes Actros getting in ETS2 too?

    ReplyDelete
  51. Excellent work. Please scs make that when trailer attachet wires connectet to the trailer too, and please add tandem trucks.

    Greetings from Lithuania ;)

    ReplyDelete
  52. Guys, thank you for the nice new pictures, but might we also expect some news other, than the graphics?

    I was happy to see the improvements on the traffic, but unfortunately the past 10-15 news were all about graphical improvements, and no news were shared on the changes affecting gameplay. While it has become a trend to focus on graphic only since the 90's, I would be grateful seeing at least some feedback on the simulation itself, because we set great hopes on you SCS. You represent the lost gender in games, The simulations, for which many players wished for for so long by now.

    So please, stop with the eyecandy for now, because we would like to see your plans and improvements on and about the simulation.

  53. This is AWESOME update keep it going SCS!! Is it possible to but text in trucks?

    ReplyDelete
  54. Can we put also our company names on the trucks??
    That would be nice...
    A small tip; Make the cab a bit wider above....

  55. SCS, you are making this game at a AAA standard. i say hire your prices a bit away from the 20 euro mark, you guys deserve more, i say sell the game at around 30 euros.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Like the dutch expression goes:
    "Rather lazy than tired" totally works for me and especially with features like this :P

  57. That Volvo , those reflections , that chrome .... LOOKS LIKE CRAP !!!!!!!!

  62. Great job! This will be the best trucking game ever!

    ReplyDelete
  63. You guys perhaps don't realize how freaking good this is! Always do people complain about it being to hard to mod cars or make new ones, or even just using built-in editors to create liveries they want. And this makes it so easy....

    Definitely well done again, SCS.

    ReplyDelete
  64. This is really some great news!
    Congratulations for the good job!!!

  72. @SCS

    Please just make this game very well optimized, because, for example, the ETS,GTS and UKTS run with lags and slowdown's sometimes in my Intel Q8400-4GB RAM- AMD Radeon 5750! And i run various games with all eye candy that have better graphics without lags.
    So i can conclude that the problem is unoptimized engine.

    Please, don't take this as an insult but as an feedback of one of your gamers!

    Best regards!!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Everyone is saying "cool" and "nice" are you all blind?! The stripes look sh*te no matter what colour you paint them. The best colour combo would be all the same colour so you cant see those hideous stripes at all..

    ReplyDelete
  74. Release this awesome new-gen trucking game already *Cry* My G27 setup is lonely! Heh.

    ReplyDelete
  75. G'day from Australia, yes this game even has a following down under sofar from what i have seen it looks great and i understand the complexity that is required to create a great product such as this. I do appreciate the fantastic screen shots but could you in the next few blogs please show some ingame features such as maps maybe a insight in how the career system works the type of play availble. Any insight about the games possible features would be great.

    Judging by T&T, some optimizations have been made and scalability has increased tenfold.

    You're a bit on the short side when it comes to wits, right?
    This is an example of what you can do. The graphical elements can be anything, from stripes to decals and logos, even basic graphics, so try not to be so narrow minded. The pattern presented is a simple, yet explanatory example of color handling, but it can very well be a "company" logo, that the player will want to use on his/her fleet. Doh!
