ETS2 nature

We have created another short "throw away" movie instead of static images, showing a few nature scenes in ETS2. The art team is striving to make the virtual world non-static, feeling natural and alive rather than very much frozen like in our older games. The world that the player drives through is a very important part of the overall experience - after all we hope that you will be spending hours and hours in this world, and we need to keep you interested in exploring it.

  6. in German truck simulator and UK truck simulator there is a problem with steering wheel. When i turn little bit left (or right) at first truck is jumping left (or right) end then turning properly. In Extreme trucker 2 there is no problem with the steering. So please make sure that ETS2 will not have that error, thanks. By the way, nice video :)

  11. No new things for myself, I did not see you stamping in one spot, not a lot of graphics on became better and everything, and everything else like Euro Truc simulator and no more ... For all your time there, it's time to think deeply and take more global measures to improve and develop commercial simulators, both in terms of graphics, and in terms of the gaming genre of games.

    Dear developers, the radio you return to the game?

    ReplyDelete
  12. also please add Radio inside the trucks...either live radio (let us choose the link) or by adding audio files in a folder inside game

    ReplyDelete
  13. very nice scs, super nature,trees flowers and pond... verybody loves another nature, some like south europe with the hills and mountains, another one loves north europe with the sea etc.

    I love eastern europe, with the flat landscape and the pine-trees an the forests. Can you show some pics about eastern-germany and poland, with lot of pine-trees and forest around the border :)

  14. Hey SCS!

    It's very nice, but....

    What about the rain, fog, snow?

    There will be no seasons?

    I've never had these news!

    Why?!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I meant no radio, and radio, as in the 18 Wheels of Steel: Howlin, negotiations between the drivers, a trifle, but it's nice, games of this genre on the radio talks bring more rializma and interest. Izvenyayus, if not all all clear, I write through the translator.

  16. Very nice scenery. I like the trees and their movement. The water is very realistic, the movement is so smooth and real. All the scenery is great besides that, and I love the clouds.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Hi SCS...
    well done...
    But we're still looking for rain & snow effects.
    These are parts of scenery,too.
    and show more videos from interior s of the trucks.
    Best regards from IRAN...

    ReplyDelete
  18. That is amazing!

    We appreciate your work ,but, we need RELEASE DATE!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Wow! The scenery looks amazing! Thanks for putting it in a video instead of a screenshot.

    As always, keep up the great work SCS!
    I'm really looking forward to ETS2.

    ReplyDelete
  20. The trees and forests certainly look great, while the lakeside is phenomenal. My only problem is that you only showed off forest environment characteristic to Northern-Europe - I hoped you would show off some mountaineous regions (e.g. Austria, it looks great in GTS) and some mediterranean countryside as well.

    Anyway, I wholeheartedly agree with the text in the entry - I hope you will indeed do everything to make the environment as diverse as possible (GTS for example did not contain a single rest area, only fuel stations - I hope this will also be changed).

    ReplyDelete
  21. I do so understand that not what we should not expect a global, will Todzha Euro Truck Simulator is the function of 18 Wheels of Steel: Howlin 'plus better graphics and game vse.V recent ACS were predictable, which is very razochirovyvaet.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Make the next video about the railway crossings, if possible!

    ReplyDelete
  23. functions video like tuning-parts, trailers, registration plates etc.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hmm... Now I'm sure I must buy new computer, if I want to play ETS2 someday. So - easy, dear developers, take your time unless I get enough money. :-D

    Trees are very nice, as leaves sways in the wind, but that water... it's absolutely astonishing. You're really on new level with environment. No doubt that in game, there will be always something beautiful to look at. Only hope that gameplay and funny features will be on new level (or, if I look back, on old level) too - like thousand times mentioned CB, live police etc etc (yes, I know that tuning will be excellent part of game, as never before). Because, at least for me, "always something to do" is more important then "always something to look at".

    Hope that my comment wasn't too long - I wish you only the best in proceeding development. :-)

  26. @DJON-96rus: Are you joking?? Why does it looks like ETS1? Definitely not! Non static nature gives the game so much more realistic effects. Hard Truck had 'dancing' trees ingame, and that makes the game so much better, and more living. This is definetely a feature that not may miss in the game, it will give this game so much more change! Certainly not a small thing. This looks awesome, I am very suprised!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Nice nature SCS.
    However, the leaves of trees swaying in the wind by a fall or was I wish to add.
    The tree is fixed.
    Of the truck with the windows open and close feature, please chugahaeju.
    For example, there is a game called Test Drive.
    The game features the opening and closing the windows of the vehicle so there is reality.
    Finally, the Crawler Crane was hoping you could actually put up a trailer.

  28. SCS, is doing a great job with the 2 Euro Truck, very good, but I want to make a suggestion, it would be great if you make a plugin like the owners of the Logitech G27 and the others as I did for LTP, a plugin to capture information from the game as RPM, and power forward them for LTP pu something as they did with the Live for Speed ​​...
    I think many would love this ...
    And again I thank you for doing this great job q, providing hours of happiness in driving our trucks.

  33. O yes very great game indeed but i think the guys on SCS Software can improve the game by adding some bumpy road ! Don't you think ?

    ReplyDelete
  34. - include the 4 seasons: spring, summer, autumn, winter + all things necessary to feel the change and the fact that is winter, spring, summer, autumn...and so on..
    - make the rain and the snow feel realistic..i mean..for example: when it rains, i want to not see nothing trought the glass of the driver,
    - make a way to give us the chance to park and sleep everywhere, to eat, to make a little stop.
    - make a way to let us take a picture with a Free Camera Option.
    - and if you can: make it multyplayer or something like this.

    ReplyDelete
  35. also, to have the posiblity to listen a radio station directly from the player from the truck (just by inserting a file from the radio player frm the internet .

    ReplyDelete
  36. Very good, already looking to see of that and much better than an ETS. Does not compare. Good job!

  37. Fantastic video. Keep up the splendid work SCS Software team.

    ReplyDelete
  38. This is awesome. The more I like shadows. And the tree is very good movement. I will give an idea that will make the game more real. During storms, trees should move faster. I hope not to move as in this video.

    ReplyDelete
  39. scs por favor algunas imaenes de los camiones interactuando con los peatones en ets1 y gts las ciudades parecian fantasmas sin todo ese movimiento gracias

    ReplyDelete
  40. So does that mean that there is going to be season and it will snow in the winter and have very few storms in summer/ leaves on the road in autumn

    ReplyDelete
  41. It's good but if we're given delivery times in the gameplay like ukts/gts then we will not be able to appreciate the scenery because we will be chasing too much.

    Please gameplay like ets1 not ukts/gts.

  42. @Hollandaise, 5:10PM
    I'm not 100% sure, but it could be Wien. Check this pic: http://www.raileurope.com/cms-images/771/517/austria-vienna-skyscrapers.jpg

  43. Can someone tell me whats the difference between these trees and those of ETS 1 besides they got some new skins ?

    Lol'd @ SCS: I read the title so I thought you would how us trees swinging in a storm and water hovering over the road.


    What we get are some still trees with new skins


    Lmao


    Btw no offence it looks ok, but dont make this like something new or a huge improvement, its the same thing just like in your previous game(s) but with a new graphic engine.

    ReplyDelete
  44. ia chuva como é ?

    ReplyDelete
  45. SCS,this looks fine,it will add some effect while driving,but,you must put more straights on highway. Constantly driving trough same curves gets boring.

    ReplyDelete
  46. In this game we have all season? Summer, rain, snow....with the truck that behave differently depending on the surface ...

    thanks.
    anyway, its a really good game!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I would like different seasons, with their different weather. I would like to see more swaying in storms. Another way to make the city more alive is by adding pedestrians. Make it so that they cross the street and if you hit them, they fall down, and pick themselves up... no blood or other graphic scenes. Add people in restaurant chairs (they don't have to move), benches, and such, to make it feel like someone actually is in the city, not just you. That would create the most realistic feel to the game, plus all this wonderful work you have been doing as well.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I would like to see other trucks making deliveries, so we have to wait at a depot while they unload and reload. Looks really good, could do with a release date though, thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  49. WoW some people just complain about every little detail, i want this i want that....oh the tree skins look the same blah blah. Jesus the youth of today want everything on a silver plate. Anyway there were a few things suggested above that i would like to see implemented myself mainly police and a radio. I think the graphics look great and if the game mechanics match the amount of detail that the visuals show i too will be enoughter one to purchase this product. Keep up the great game and i do look forward to seeing the complete product. Cheers from Australia!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Excellent work SCS it would be nice if the truck behavior could change depending the weather condition for example if it rains trucks braking distance could be longer or when there is snow you could make the road slipery and make us driving extra carefull to avoid the truck exit the road

    ReplyDelete
  51. Wonderful, even the smallest movement of the trees make the world much more alive. The lake is just perfect, it looks really good. We'll surely enjoy the environment much more!

    Keep it up SCS!

  52. Waiting for some rain-in-the-windsheild videos ;)

  53. whats the point in having multiplayer?

    This isn't a racing game.

    Btw great job scs.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I want to see the rain!

    Good work SCS!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Looks lovely, SCS. As mentioned above, especially the water is impressive! Considering that most of the time will be spent driving along a road the nature will indeed be splendid.

    Regarding some ideas above, such as no time limit, perhaps have cargoes that have no limit (or a generous one) and more time-sensitive cargo as well. While most cargoes IRL are indeed time-dependent it is nice to enjoy a less stressful tempo sometimes -- or make it easily moddable, if nothing else.

    Season would be lovely, but can be tricky (especially snow actually building up, that is still a major hurdle in gaming still today).

    Radio would be nice, even if it is used less in EU than US.

    Regarding modding, please provide a map editor and ease of access to tweak things, that would be positively grand and one reason your games do live on for a long time. To be able to adjust time/scale and economy is something I personally hope for.

    Enough of wishes form me now, heh, and again, the game will be very pleasing to the eye, I feel. Keep up the good work, SCS.

  65. I like both the screenshots and the movies. Most people here are expecting too much. I can see what the focus is on every time but these guys don't seem to realise WIP means unfinished. Keep it up! I like what I see!

    P.S. Will we see more cities and countries than in ETS1 and will gameplay be upgraded to include a career (as in UK/GTS) and different sizes/types of trailer/goods?

    ReplyDelete
  66. Anonymous say:"So does that mean that there is going to be season and it will snow in the winter and have very few storms in summer/ leaves on the road in autumn" and i'm agree with him. This will be more realistic!

    @SCS Very great video!!!

    ReplyDelete
  74. @the ones who snap at me for spamming those posts above: WHY THE FUCK IS IT SO MUCH TO ASK THEM TO TELL US A RELEASE DATE? It doesn't necessarily have to be the exact date, but they could at least let us know the month in which the game will be released. Do you think it's right to let us wait for so long without at least giving us a HINT about the release date?

    ReplyDelete
  75. The game won't be finished faster just because we get a releasedate. Relax, kids!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Stupid fuck! Go fuck yourself!

    ReplyDelete
  77. What the fuck?! I didn't ask for the game to be released faster than it's finished, but I think it would be fair to let us fans know when it will be released. My aim is not to rush the developers into releasing an unfinished product. What I want is that they let us know when they'll release the finished game.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Why the heck is it so hard for them to tell us "The game will probably be released in January 2012/December 2013/whatever"? That way we'll know what to expect and forget about this game for a few months/years/whatever.

    ReplyDelete
  79. @Nelutu: the SCS company can tell you the game will be release after 1 week. But after this one week they discover that they need to improve 1 thing that makes another 10 things to be improved so the game will be delayed with 3 months. I hope your happy now. Please wait patiently!

    For SCS I want to remind them as a review of some comments:
    We, the fans, who read this blog we want:

    New features:
    1. gps navigation system
    2. mud and dirty trucks -> wash them in service etc
    3. live radio streaming from internet
    4. weather & seasons in the game (spring/summer/autumn/winter)
    5. lan network for multiplayers in local area
    6 rest area on the road
    7. police, ambulange, firefighter car on the roads
    8. led indicators on the road for speed, crash, etc
    9. the posibility to open the side window in the truck
    10 pedestrians in the city (make the city more alive)
    11. alive depot, waiting a truck before you to finish to deliver goods
    12. parking difficulty, as you choose the level of difficulty


    Improvement of things, correcting this bugs:
    1. horn not usefull in GTS
    2. some priority on intersesction

    I totally agree with overshift.

  80. i would like to see vehicles going in gas station.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Maybe they do not know! By constantly asking for a release date,to me,is the same as nagging.I know that when someone nags me to do something,I tend to slow down even more!
    More than likely though,they are using "Hype" to get us all in a state of excitement over this new game and in the end,sell many more games!It is a business strategy! Like all of you,I am impatient as well.I keep playing my older games and keep watching on here for news that will finally be good. I just don't see any point to posting all the same questions on here like a few have done! Just wanted to add my opinion.......Greetings from Canada.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I agree with anonymous...
    - include the 4 seasons: spring, summer, autumn, winter + all things necessary to feel the change and the fact that is winter, spring, summer, autumn...and so on..

  83. Anonymus totally agree with you , I understand that there is no competition among CU games in this genre, but not a reason to sit still , returning something from which left not many years ago , we must increasingly think and develop their skills and introduce newer technologies in their games including multiplayer , because eslli be in the game multiplayer, and then increase the number of sales licenses , thus in polnitsa not a bad budget SCS.

    ReplyDelete
  84. This is my personal opinion !!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  85. @ anonomous.
    "- make a way to let us take a picture with a Free Camera Option."

    This is already in the game! At least ETS. You press F10 then you'l take a picture. Then you have to go to the ETS map, and from their take the pickture map or something like that.

    PS: I am not compleately positive it's F10 but one of the F-keys it is. (F1-F12)


    SCS, this is indead a bad thing, can you make so that we can see the picktures we have taken while playing your game. Cause when we start, it's hard to stop.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Just for the record, the guy above isn't me, he's just using my words. It's nice to see that more people are asking for a release date.

    Knowing which improvements the game still needs, I don't think it's really that hard for them to estimate about when the game will be released. As I said other times too, we don't need a certain date, we only want an approximate month for now.

    RELEASE DATE PLEASE !!!
    WE CAN'T WAIT ANYMORE !!!
    RELEASE DATE PLEASE !!!
    WE CAN'T WAIT ANYMORE !!!

    ReplyDelete
  90. Mihai P, I agree with some points you wrote, not with all, and some of them are already confirmed by SCS. But I appreciate your effort to collect most wanted things. Here are your points as I look at them.

    New features:

    1. GPS - SCS already said there will be new gadged in cabin. It'll work as GPS and maybe some other features will be accessible via this gadget too, but it was no more specified.

    2. Mud, dirty trucks, washing. Yes, agree.

    3. Live radio streaming. I suppose if this works in GTS, UKTS, ET2 and T&T, it'll work in ETS2 too. But yes, there could be more user friendly system then writing station's URL to sii file manually. Also mp3/stream player could have "autoradio" skin.

    4. Weather and seasons. Yes, weather should be improved, both in visual and vehicle behaviour ways. Agree. But season changing means total rework of engine, map building system etc. We would wait next two years. So no for seasons.

    5. Multiplayer. Simply no. No comment. ;-)

    6. Rest areas. Yes, SCS already confirmed that on blog months ago.

    7. Police, ambulance, firefighters on the road. Not only agree, but also some more diversity in vehicles you meet would be nice (lorries, more types of vans then Ford Transit, buses, motorbikes etc).

    8. Dynamic road signs - speed, crashes. Why not, although it means lots of additional coding. I can wait with that, good idea for future games. :-)

    9. Side window opening. Not necessary for me. Behaviour of first person camera in T&T (if you look over your shoulder, you "lean out" from window) is absolutely enough. Also I hope that T&T's undocumented function, adjustable mirrors, will be kept.

    10. Pedestrians. We all know for months that SCS is afraid about keeping ESRB 0, which is important for them. So - yes for pedestrians, but only in areas which are not accessible with vehicle.

    11. Alive depot. Again, lots of coding, but I agree. It would be very enlieving feature. But maybe some "mover" models would be enough, of course with no possibility to wait a truck before you. Just as eye-candy.

    12. Optional parking difficulty. Yes, can't no more agree.

    Improvements:

    Agree with both 1 and 2.

    ReplyDelete
  91. good work, scs

    i like the video!

    best regards

    ReplyDelete
  92. I got 2 thinga to say.

    1: People dont ask SCS for a release date. SCS will try to rush the game and they will make mistakes and that is bad for a already beutifull game like this.

    2: I thought about multiplayer. What about Virtual Companys. We had them on forums, but if SCS could make menus to make it easier. Something like a group tab in thr garage where you can start/join a company(start will cost $)
    Design skins for truck and trailers with text from that company. And the thing where you need to
    fill in how much you have driven that job,
    your expense etc. You would not need to see your colleuges in-game

    You can reply to: Dannyboy1861995@hotmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  93. I have to be honest when telling you I've torrented all your previous games (except for Bus Driver), simply because they've offered me a few hours of fun, before I grew tired of them. This games however differs so much from the rest of them, not only by how much you work on the physics engine (which is a huge part of a game like this), but also due to the environments and the realism brought into this game. I won't pirate this game, you deserve EVERY PENNY you get from this release. Keep it up SCSSoft, you have huge potential in a market that is nearly untouched.
