Time of Day living screenshot

Here is a very simple view of a scene with static camera, but various time of day.



We still have some work ahead of us in day/night cycle simulation (as well as bad weather which we are not yet even ready to show - the new effects are not completed). We are now tweaking tone mapping parameters; our new HDR system has a lot more degrees of freedom for settings things up compared to our old engine, but it also means that we can spend a lot of time with the alchemy of finding the best approach.

  5. ^ And what about to read and not only watching moving picters? SCS clearly said that weather is still not completed right in THIS POST! Gosh...

  6. Just read the text:
    "bad weather [is] not yet even ready to show - the new effects are not completed."

    So there will be new weather effects as well, which is great! Just like the video, although I hoped to see a late night shot as well. Let's hope it will be just as dark as it would be in reality, unlike in ETS/GTS. :)

    Keep up the good work!

  7. Nice video!
    I hope in a few weeks you'd be able to show some info about the weather! Just crank up some more AI cars on the road.
    P.S. I'm lovin' the swaying tree! Feels really alive!
    Just keep the pedestrians and it will be the best truck simulator. :D

    Keep up the good work!

    Best Regards

  8. Looking good -- although I might be used to nights here, maybe the sky is lighter in south of Europe (apart from summer nights up here, of course). Not much darker, but a bit?

    As others I love the trees, very nicely made, make the scene look quite alive (c:

  12. The Night is toooo Bright.i think No More LEARN THIS...NIGHT=DARK

  13. The ET2 is giving an impressive jump in graphics, congratulations, but you are putting in the side windows or rain will still get a little lame in this area? If the crystal is fogged would be perfect!

  14. I think they didn't show us the complete night, just late evening and early morning.

  15. How about
    more wind
    more realistic auto lights

  16. trailer wheel and get the sounds

  17. Very good! The climates are very real, and the trees and grasses in the wind and balance realistic. Surely it will be by far the best truck simulator game by SCS Software. But imagine here some 5 years, 2015, 2016, will release more games much better this that , so I can not wait!

  18. As much as SCS is doing, to try and make us all happy,I wonder if they will price themselves out of the market with this new game simulator.Will the graphics cause the average person to have to purchase a much better video card,more memory (ram),3d graphics? I have a good card now, but fear it may still have to be upgraded soon.Personally, I will spare no expense tto satisfy my need for the best simulator game in the trucking world! But I wonder about those who are not as fortunate as I.SCS..you are doing a brilliant job with ETS2!!

  19. Good but the night isn't really dark

  20. Very interesting video.
    From what little I see the scene shows a high sense of realism.
    It would be really great if the rain will be high realistic level
    In addition to having the best, we would also like the snow, much snow. Of course in places that provide snowfall.
    I ask too much? :-)

  21. je to vůbec záběr ze hry?? nebo je to natočený někde u dálnice.

  22. Please, the night is darker!

  23. I really like the movement. But please be sure to add more cars, I don't understand why so many recent games are low on cars. Please change this by making a LOT of traffic. Without it, the world seems so quiet and boring, and people do not like that type of game. I recommend you make a slider that can control the amount of traffic, and if it's set up all the way, there should be so much traffic that you could hardly maintain the speed limit.

  24. awesome job scs looks good so far and also i like the fact that we have this blog every day thats awesome too

    ReplyDelete
  25. Really nice job SCS!

    Just one question: the night will be REALLY DARK?? Because in the previus sim's it was too bright and not that much realistic.

    But anyway, great job!

    Best regards from Brazil!

  26. they didn't show the night.

    That was just cloudy.

  27. all those people who keep saying that the graphics are to high, just shut up.

    There will definitely be a option to make the graphics low.

    so calm down.

  28. Awesome video. Keep up the splendid work SCS Software team.

  29. Hmm.. i am a bit disappointed :/ day time looks well .. included clouds and effects, but about night :S :/ please, developers, have you ever seen so light night like you created to game? It's as unrealistic as in GTS or ETS was. Night is normally dark not so like that you don't need to turn on the lights and you can see one kilometer far in front of truck. Please, correct it.

  30. thats really nice scs, but it could be a litlle bit darker at night.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yes, like anonymous said above, slider for traffic density would be great. Sometimes it is nice with little traffic, sometime congested roads are some kind of twisted fun, ha! (c;

    About graphics, yes, most likely there will be many ways to drop down the quality to allow older systems to cope, just like all the previous titels from SCS and most other games.

    It was unclear whether night was shown or not, at least to me (and some others, evidently). Maybe SCS can shed some light on the night, heh?

  32. I heart that the release is on 10 january!

  33. I do not understand a thing when the game is that you came here http://www.amazon.de/RONDOMEDIA-Euro-Truck-Simulator-2/dp/B005FPLS0G http://www.rondomedia.de/produkte/simulationen.html

  34. Scs please tell us a bit about gameplay rather than constant images and clips of the landscape . The gameplay itself is what needs a huge makeover to get people interested in playing it for long periods . the landscape may look way better but if the actual gameplay is not vastly improved especially the AI then it will be a huge disappointment .Surely others on your team are improving gameplay so some information on that would be more interesting

  35. SCS,please do this, that you drive to the netherlands, the cars have yellow netherland registration plates, if you drive to poland, the cars and vehicles have polish registration plates and co... all countries with his own registration plates like in real.

  36. red car at 00:36,

    cool, again a new ai car

  37. Excellent! Almost hypnotic! Good work, very good!
    May I remind you an old suggestion of mine, to release a screensaver using the game engine, featuring landscapes or even saved journeys made by the player, viewed from a dynamic camera (similar to T&T TV Camera). :) Thank you!

  38. Good job. And please make mud & dirty trucks!
