A7 Afsluitdijk dam in the Netherlands

You may still remember an older blog post where we were showing early work on the ETS2 area portrayed in the following movie. We have revisited the area now in the current build of the game with the intent of creating another short living screenshot movie, but in the end we have recorded quite a bit longer stretch of road. Hopefully you won't mind ;-).



Disclaimers will be needed again - yes we know that the mirrors reflection angle needs some work, and we'll do something about it about the time the game ships for sure. Also, while we are presenting one of the coolest trucks in the world here, licensing talks about presence of particular truck brands in the game are still under way, and we cannot guarantee that anything that you see in our movies or screenshots from work-in-progress state of the game will be allowed to appear in the final game.

  2. Won't mind? Are you f-ing kidding me? This video is superb!!
    And one BIG thanks for fixing the speedometer typo from 50 to 60. Thanks for listening to us.

    I hope I see this Actros as it is now.
    I don't get it, why are they reluctant to have their brand in game. Mercedes should pay you for this 3D beauty! ;-)

  5. nice work! :-)

    But something wrong with the control of the truck?

  6. I've been overwhelmed with the awesomeness of the video, so I forgot to tell you something you should check out for us steering wheel users.
    Notice when you turn the wheel there is a little "offset" or "deadzone" at a small angle. But when you turn the wheel more the truck turns more sharply. There is that problem in Truck and Trailers too.
    Sorry if I chosen the wrong words, English isn't my first language.

    Best Regards

  8. "...licensing talks about presence of particular truck brands in the game are still under way..."

    You are already tired of repeating the same thing. Enough! If you are so afraid for own asses, do not existing trucks at all. A fine whine!

    Really SCS,you are doing a good work.Even this is WIP,we can see lot of improvements.First,interior is great.And I cannot say how much I`m happy because you fixed RPMs,so now they are always between 1000 and 1500 RPMs.And of course environment is perfect.
    Just keep doing great work SCS!

  15. Very nice video

    graphic: super
    truck: super
    environment: super
    feeling: super
    driving control: very bad (W.I.P.?)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Fascinating interiors and environment! Thank you very much for the video! A great sight for sore eyes!

    However, people complaining about truck control are right - something doesn't seem "right" with the handling of the truck, something which also hindered enjoyable experience in T&T for people with steering wheel. The deadzone of the wheel is a bit annoying, you snould definitely delve into it and try to fix it!

  20. That looks awesome!!! I drive there sometimes and I didn't expect that the environment and the Afsluitdijk itself would looks like this (Like real!!)! It looks very recognazible. I guess the truck is driving from Den Oever to Friesland? Awesome!

  21. Awesome! You look at that speed effect, that wind. The sea not to mention, when you look at it, the reflection of the sun is shining and it. The cabin is good, but I think the padding of the seats and side panel where you have that piece of cloth, still looks very artificial, other than that the cabin is perfect.

  29. Great job. The effort is seen. Physics of the video can not be seen, but any changes there are going to see. Shading is great. But the driving physics is really not perfect, we have to wait for the final version.

  30. SCS!

    His work is fabulous! Blog updates with the videos are very good! It's good to see the movement of the game, how everything works. What about the physical, we will improved?

    Congratulations on everything!

  32. Very nice, thank you for fixing that typo that matters so much. Please make sure the steering is good and not laggy. I don't see what your complaining about the mirrors is for, they look great. GTS had too wide of an angle, to unrealistic. This is great. And the mediocre steering may just be a result of using the keys or since you're just filming a video not taking a driving test. Anyway, great scenery, great waters, great trees, great skies, all just so wonderful. And how could I forget that beautiful, realistic truck interior. I can't wait till release!!

  33. You all know what? TODAY IS BLOG'S ANNIVERSARY! We can read news about our beloved games exactly for one year! SO HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BLOG -- AND THANKS FOR NEWS, ALL GUYS FROM SCS! I wish you success in business, good health and many, many satisfied fans!

    BTW I counted it from very start up to now, and we saw 210 screenshots from ETS2 (and of course bunches of pics from ET2 and T&T and from truckfests and so...) Do you know any other developer which can feed hungy funs so often? :-D

  34. really good works , holland area always want see and seriously nice :O

  35. Fantastic. So many things have come a long way since ETS1: truck interior, environment, number of real locations, even background music. I love the contemporary Rock instrumental soundtrack pieces.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Superb job SCS! I hope we will have the choice of right hand drive and left hand drive when we buy our trucks from the dealer on the game!!!

  37. awesome work!
    dont forget to fix scania mirrors!they are totally wrong and its a shame for such a good truck to have bad details!

  40. Congratulations! It's a "giant leap" from last versions of the game.
    Loved the sailing boat, the flapping flags and overall look of the scenery. You've done something to be proud of.
    Now, I know I'm gonna have to start saving for a new computer. :) But it's worth the effort!
    Nice job!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Usually I'm not that one who complains but I don't like 3 things.
    1. Interior is ugly, I mean colors and textures look like very low quality. Steering wheel and dashboard looks artificially.
    2. I don't see left mirror from inside camera. The camera should be withdrawn that we could see left mirror without moving camera.
    3. Steering is not smooth. I hope you are aware about this problem. I liked steering in ET2.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Third person camera? I hope to see some second of driving with external cameras in one of the next movie 'cause i didn't like driving with the internal one (just my idea, not much).
    I'm really worried about that because T&T have one of the worstest external camera of all the driving game in the world, so I don't want that ETS2 have the same problem!

    PLEASE SCS, SHOM ME SOMETHING, I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE WORRIED FOR THIS OUT THERE!!!

  48. STFU and stop spamming.
    And who's we? Personally, I can wait a few more months so ETS2 is finished.

    SCS, please delete these spam comments.

    ReplyDelete
  49. It's not that I can't wait for a few more months, but I think we deserve to know approximately IN WHICH MONTH it will be released. That's the least they could announce.

    ReplyDelete
  50. You deserve to know the release date after acting like a complete douchebag? Come on, man... :D

    Don't be an idiot and learn to use Google instead of spending your time writing these freakin' spams. It takes less time to check out Rondomedia's site and is also more productive.

    The german publisher lists 25 November as release date, BUT THAT IS NOT 100% SURE AS SCS ALREADY STATED. Nevertheless it can give you a general idea on when ETS2 might hit the shelves...

    ReplyDelete
  51. Simply wonderful!!! Dynamic sun light are spectacular, while the driver's seat seems too rigid.

  52. The control and physics are still terrible! This is not good ...
    This spoil the game! :(

    This is true. The stearing in ETS was mutch better with the wheel than in T and T and this game at this moment.

  62. A shame the max speed on the dma is 50 ingame in real it is 130.

    ReplyDelete
  63. @All 50 speed guys,

    When you drive 130 you couldn't see the landscape and details!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Nice video! but what Jordi saids, its 130 km/h. maybe you can change that? The restplace is really realistic, the same as in the real world!

    o yeah and please use the steering psychics from German truck simulator, thats a much better then that from Trucks&Trailers.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Great video but why can't we see the drivers mirror in the default front driving cab view. I liked the viewpoint as in ets/uk/gts were you included the mirror as default. I don't want to be pressing F2 all the time for mirrors to see behind me and I don't want to have F2 on all the time showing mirrors all the time. I like to turn all aids (mirrors,map,console)off and make it as real as possible. This I can do and drive if I have the drivers mirror showing as default. Please don't mess this up SCS. Or maybe as a fix make what ever cab angle view we choose ourselves it can be saved so it is always the same when we go back to that view.

  66. Fix the steering, it`s terrible.

  69. great work looks amazing but i miss 1 tiny little detail the little bridge in the middle (not exact) with the dutch flag there should be a statue near it

    ReplyDelete
  70. Video of happy of course, all the cool done, shadow, shop, etc, but there is one but the motorway little for players, new objects on the map, it will last for a maximum of two weeks to play, and all nadoest. Plyus all this must have improve the environment, rain, snow, wind, etc etc. . . then the game will be just super.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Brothers be calm! Everyone will complain of steering. The game is not finished. We cry as if this is the last video. You say the game is announced tomorrow and the steering is not good. Be patient brothers! Everything will be perfect to finish! Trust Team SCS Software.

    And about the video is superb, especially that boat. And thank you for having your speedometer repaired(50 to 60km/h). This gives evidence of respect for fans. I can not wait to release the game.

    ReplyDelete
  72. SCS,

    Awesome job. I cant wait till the game comes out. It looks great. You guy's did awesome job.

    ReplyDelete
  73. The video looks good but I think It will be as boring as the last edition of the game. I'm gonna try to explain why. To lot of gamers PTTM was the most enjoyable game because it was actually more realistic.
    There was an economy system - there were real drivers, who made actual deliveries. The current trend is that every AI truck is generated randomly and as soon as you turn your head it is gone and forgotten. I have to say that playing the game makes you feel lonely as hell. PTTM made you feel that you are a part of a system.
    Secondly, there is no fun and certainly no exitement in knowing that in the next town you can haul any cargo at any time. Those who have played PTTM with expanded map (Mexico City included) know that there was at least 2 weeks waiting time in some cities. A bit tiresome but hell of a lot better than the current games. At least you had some reason to plan your next cargo. Thirdly, in PTTM the trucker really was the king of the road. I know it sounds a bit silly and unrealistic but it was fun to escape from the police. And I really hated the traffic lights solution, is it really neccessary? Players who like to play the game like they would win a prize in stopping at the lights, may well do so, but it does not matter to me if I have to deliver a timed cargo. And lastly - please make the trucks' smoke darker! There is no greenpeace in PC world! More diesel smoke is what the games need. I realize the new trucks are more environment friendly, but still.
    To keep us from falling asleep behind our steering wheel, please take these points under consideration, or we will never stop playing Pedal to the Metal.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Fgs it's still in development, guys. The only thing you can expect to be perfect is the point of focus. In this case, it's the scenery. We know the trucks aren't finished. I'd imagine the same goes for the physics.

    ReplyDelete
  75. that was BEATIFUL! Execpt the fact that the steering looked really glitchy and really edgy and not so smooth? WAZZUP WITH DAT?!

    ReplyDelete
  76. PTTM THE BEST OF SCS.
    PHISICS ALWAYS THE SAME PROBLEM....SCS

    ENGLAND

    ReplyDelete
  77. ...and some people know all there is to know about the physics and steering from this video. Yeah, right. dc:

    As mentioned above, maybe they used the keyboard. And the focus was taking nice scenic imagery, which by the way was looking splendid. Absolutely gorgeous.

    Regarding handling, I do like the way it is in Extreme Trucker 2. Feels like a really heavy truck, ha! And, yes, I missed 18 WoS, USA and all that, but perhaps ETS2 will have be a step towards the return to 18 WoS next time...?

    ReplyDelete
  78. SCS, for the motorways in poland there are special road-signs. Here is an example for the gas station,parking place etc. ->
