ETS2 cities

This user interface screen from Euro Truck Simulator 2 is going to reveal quite a bit about the span of Europe covered in the game.



This screen doesn't show the UK destinations, as they were not in the particular build of the game when this image was grabbed, but a considerably reworked map from UKTS will be merged in too.

It may be a disappointment for some of our fans from countries not covered here, but this is as good as we have managed so far after almost 2 years of work on the game. With the attention to detail we are pursuing, and much denser road coverage compared to original Euro Truck Simulator, adding in countries is a tedious and slow process. For comparison, while the original ETS map represented circa 1.5 man-year of work, we have already sunk over eight man-years into the ETS2 map, and we are not quite finished yet.

Is this all? Depends on you. We would love to continue extending the ETS2 world beyond the release of the initial version of the game, but it all depends on support that we receive from the fan base. But we have already ranted on this topic multiple times, and it's well past midnight here in Prague.

  1. What a great coverage, I'm glad to hear the infrastructure will be denser, I always wished there was another way to get from A to B in ETS.

    Now, I also hope HUNGARY will have a destination (Budapest), the grey color and that its an earlier build led me to believe that

  2. A voire ce que ça donneras a la sortie de ETS 2

    Je vois qu'il y a pas beaucoup de route plus d'autoroute que de petite route encore une fois!!!

    Perso je suis dessus de la carte mais ces que mon avis pour l'instemps ça peut changer.

    Très bon travail SCS, j’espère que vous faite tous ce que vous pouvez pour rendre le jeux formidable je vous fait confiance.

  5. why don't you have scandinavian countries on the map?
    I had really liked to drive in norway, because i am norwegian and it is more challanging roads here.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Very good. There are so many that not to tell :/ But is not it better will have more places to load and unload, and at least I hope veses three cities are bigger than the other older versions of Truck Simulator.

  7. want scandinavian patch

    ReplyDelete
  8. It's really a good job. I'm pretty sure you will do some update that will add on country or city.

    But what is this in this image is already a very good thing. Especially not seen yet the cities of the United Kingdom.

    I understand the disappointment of some people who do not find their country, but we must understand that it's not that easy for SCS Software, and try to have hope they will release patches to add some other country, I am thinking of Spain or Portugal.

    I think you, the development team and the person who post the news here, must be very tired. When I see the time when the news are posted (even on weekends, few people work on weekends), I see you have a lot of courage and I guess you must all be united, make more hours to try to keep the studio.

    I updates the blog very often, at least ten times a day. It's like a drug for me and others I think. We all love your work and tonight, I wish once again to thank you.

    And I wish you courage.
    Good night and good luck to you.

  9. This looks good to me. I would like more countries, but I would also be willing to buy expansion packs to add the missing countries as well.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Very good work. But there are a some countries with few cities.
    You said they are working in a map with more highways. This is great. Maybe don't be big as i imagine.
    I always thought there should be dirt roads that would lead to farms where we could get milk, tomatoes, pineapples, among others, and lead to companies like EuroGoodies. Would be really cool.
    I can not forget about me driving a Mercedes Benz Accelo on a dirt road from one farm to the city early in the morning, carrying fresh milk, in this simulator. This is an old idea that would make the game more real and isn't bad. So, you could release updates for Euro Truck Simulator 2 with more truck(big and also small), more highways, more companies, more targets, make the game more complete and always actual.

    Thanks SCS Soft.

  11. the only think I want to say is think you, for the team of SCS , you must be very tired. When I see the time when the news are posted (even on weekends, few people work on weekends), thank you and good night.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Taken 8 years to complete this great map and some ppl want more places like Scandinavia etc. Sure they could add them and the game might be out by 2015, let's just be happy with what we have now and it is looking great. Maybe later on more extra's will be added via DLC or whatever method.

    And ofcourse the modding community will have lots to help with the extra addons, personaly would like to see a polished game right now with what they have already done then a agame with 2,000 citys in it and issues around every turn.

    ReplyDelete
  13. SCS this is very awesome news! For the Countries that didn't make it in It will give us modders something to do!!!! Thank you SCS Soft for being busy and working hard I'm happy that yall are devoted to making this game better and to make the best trucking sim ever made until American Truck Sim comes out lol

But if not, it wont be sucha big problem, becouse the ETS2 world is allready "preatty" big with a lot more citys in the allready existing countries. GREAT! work scs. Keep up ! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  16. This is going to be a great game SCS, cant wait any longer..

  20. good job scs, please more cyties

    ReplyDelete
  21. Cool, even new cities in Germany, seems to be Kassel, Mannheim/Ludwigshafen, Osnabrück that's a big plus
    On the screen I still miss A3 from Frankfurt to Netherlands via Köln, please don't let that important Highway out of the game, same to A6 it should go to France.
    But perhaps you already built that, the picture is just too old.

  22. who cares about driving around in germany? give us scandinavia ffs

    ReplyDelete
  23. dont need to expend anymore for now fix trailers and other stuff in game and give us game!!!!!!! we wanna play

    ReplyDelete
  24. It's good that the cities are more closer to eachother, not 2 cities to the whole country :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. You could release this as "Euro Truck Simulator 2 Lite" and then do more coverage and call it "Euro Truck Simulator 2 Standard" and then do even more coverage and call it "Euro Truck Simulator 2 Ultimate" :) just a suggestion

    ReplyDelete
  26. Where is Romania? I'm sad!

    ReplyDelete
  27. FIND MAPPERS.

    There are LOADS of mappers that could help you guys out, for example Pumizo from eurotrucksimulator.org, he is a good mapper, also there are some others on there.

    ReplyDelete
  28. ^Perhaps the Germans care, where SCS games usually sell best?

    As for Hungary, it would be great if you could tell me (a short response is everything I need) on why Hungary is indicated as an active country, if Budapest is not shown? Three things came to my mind...

    a.) Hungary is greyed out accidentally, the country won't be available (fair enough, you told me back then that "Hungary may not make it into the final version")

    b.) Hungary is not included in this build.

    c.) The Hungarian section is not yet ready.

    d.) Hungary is there, but Budapest is not available for headquarters. I can understand that, considering all the taxes and the total lack of company revenues we have here.... :DDDDDD

    ReplyDelete
  29. please make more cities and don't realase it soon and make finish it at 10.10.2012 but finish itwith all tha lands in europa and all the cities
    with highways and roads sorry for my bad english

    ReplyDelete
  30. As i see, there is no balcan, please put in balcan and scandinavia and this will be the best game ever!

    ReplyDelete
  31. If you complete all the countries, what aren't completed (France, Slovakia, Poland etc.), then it would be real create! As for now, it looks like the Germany is the center of everything.

    Hope to see complete France in game on day!

    All the best!
    @.n.d

    ReplyDelete
  32. Where is Romania? seriously..if you want to make EURO TRUCK SIMULATOR, then ADD ALL THE COUNTRIES AND CITIES THAT ARE IN EUROPEAN UNION. I prefer that you guys launch the game more later and work hard and do all the things are needed to do OR make it how you want and make the posibility to add update packages, something like: Need For Speed World or MineCraft. Just take a look at these games.

    ReplyDelete
  33. No Sweden ): A suggestion don't write that you can drive in whole Europe becouse that not true.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Only completed countries are Germany (basic model from GTS) UK (basic model from UKTS) and then small ones: Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland...

    You should definitely complete at least one of the NEW big countries. I mean France or Poland or Italy. At least one of them before the release!

    As for now, I'm littlebit dissapointed.

    Regards!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hello there.

    Yes. As other says it could be great with Scandinavian map / roads too.
    I am from Scandinavia too and miss that we can drive here too.

    And it.could be fun with weather functions - like storms.
    And snow in winther time.

    Good job.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Great to see that there is Austria in that game again! Are you also able to drive over the 'Tauernautobahn' to Italy? Would be great, cause it's one of the most popular North to South route

    ReplyDelete
  37. looks good, but only had a few major cities in liked

    ReplyDelete
  38. Scania is from Sweden and you have been in Sweden and still no Sweden, don't be suprised if it don't gonna have a Scania license.

  39. Hello guys!

    It's nice-nice, but...

    It will be Middle-West-Europe Simulator 2, because it's not whole Europe?!

    I understand, that you working very hard, but if it will be Euro Truck, then you create whole Europe!

    ReplyDelete
  40. scs, you never fail to amaze me with the screenshots you are showing, amazing work.

    ReplyDelete
  41. very good job,so many cities in germany,belgium and austria than the old game,but I would like to see more countries at least hungarian and scandinavian.my hope for greece i think is impossible..

    ReplyDelete
  42. well this is only good news for the German country really - just look at the coverage they are getting - 22 cities..it seems just unfair that the rest of Europe where you have so many dedicated fans (Scandinavia, Baltic States, Balcan states, Spain, Portugal..) are so neglected that they can't even get their capitals in the game (that's like one city each with two roads leading to them!). But you have probably counted it in business so I guess you are counting mostly on the German country to bring you money..pity.

    ReplyDelete
  43. the good side is that I counted already 54 cities, so the middle-center Europe is going to be DENSE - plus with the UK cities that you want to do (at least 6 more cities I guess) it should be over 60 cities total which is something like twice of the original ETS1 size. The down side is that you have densed the Germany so much, and that countries like Spain, Norway, Sweden, Slovakia, Romania, Bulgaria, Greece etc. seem to not get your attention AT ALL. which is really dissapointing.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Of Course it's more buyers in Germany, Germany is in the game, if other countries was in it more buyers in those countries would buy it.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Where is in Poland Bytow ?! (77-100 Bytow)
    Please include this popular Town :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. I prefer to wait more for to game but I want that game to be epic.
    More countries (in the photo doesnt appear Portugal, Spain, Italy and the other half of France. Work a lot but work properly.

    Good work SCS all my feedback and my support. (and from my other friends too)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Hello, i like what you are doing to ETS 2, but i have one question? Is it posible to put Slovenija on ETS 2 Map. I beleive you are familiar with the one of the most important port in Koper. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Port_of_Koper) It is one of the most important ports in europe. I think it would be great to have it in the game.

    PS: The game looks grate, i cant wait to play it.

    ReplyDelete
  48. You should have been deleting some of the German cities maybe and focus on expanding the Europe, but you've just focust on UK and Germany and then add few other countries and cities... There's no need for such dense Germany, when it's only one of the two of these dense countries.

    ReplyDelete
  49. It's a nice Map,

    i hope the cities are bigger then GTS and ETS.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Germany has the most cities.. that's not fair.

    ReplyDelete
  51. nice map but where is the scandinavian countries?? :O

    ReplyDelete
  52. WADOWICE (JAN PAWEŁ II), KRAKÓW - Long City...

    ReplyDelete
  53. If only people read the post, but no, and those people will not read this comment either, so... Poor SCS, people see pictures but do not read the words. Work in progress, people. Oy vey. /c:

    Anyway, looking good so far, SCS. More roads, denser network of such and more cities with (most of) the countries from ETS and the chance of expanding it if people actually buy the game instead of stealing it, sounds good indeed! Let's hope people indeed buy it this time and that you thus can add more countries later on as you hint at. (c:

    ReplyDelete
  54. Croatia doesn't stand a chance does it? Considering Rijeka (Croatia) and Koper (Slovenia) are the most important ports on this side of the Adriatic, it could be at least a "maybe" part of the game. KIU SCS! :)

  55. Good luck scs !

  56. To many German cities. I'm dissapointed.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Improve and facilitate the map editor would be good ..

    ReplyDelete
  58. I was expecting more of the cities that will be mapped as accurately as possible, but not at the expense of the rest of the map of Europe ... it is true map and the artwork itself is very high compared to previous visits. But if it's 2 Euro Truck Simulator, Euro Truck Simulator successor should be a whole map of Europe, not only neighboring countries based on the German ... only exception is Italy, which in no way is bordered by the German.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Can't you add some cities in Sweden to? Like Gothenburg, Stockholm and malmoe? It would be so awesome to be able to drive in my homecountry in the game!

    Also more czech cities would be nice ;)

  66. Why you don't mape some Mappacks, like Call of Duty game's.. You can get more money and we more fun! (Like more countries or trucks or whatever..)

    And could you sell this game on Steam too please?

  68. Hey guys! There could be more cities, but it is important to !!!BUY!!! SCSs games, not to download them!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Hope that Germany is much bigger from getting from Poland to Portugal in ETS, then Yes,Perfect game.

    Poland seems small in this map, hope there will be patch to it later on, and I'm dissapointed that there's no Spain nor Portugal. Anyway, someone will probably make their own map because SCS said that map editor will be much easier, hope we get some information about map editor too.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Great work SCS, I've counted 52 towns!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Please add just 1-2 cities in Hungary, just Győr, Budapest, Szeged, Debrecen or Nyíregyháza, because these tranzit routes, + Zalaegerszeg from to Ljubljana in Slovenia.

    Nice job boys ;)

    I agree with that because I'm from Slovenia and these ports are very important. A lot of trucks from Hungary, Czech republic, Slovakia, Poland comes to these ports. They are very important for East Europe.

  78. Just make what you can do as interesting to drive as possible and make it feel still sim like and not arcade, that's all I ask. You said in Feb blog that the cities will be 3 x bigger so that will be good. I like others are very much looking forward to the release so we can get on that virtual road. More content will be welcome after release date when you can provide it.

    Keep up the long and enduring tedious work SCS :)

    ReplyDelete
  79. hopefully it gives whole france, more cities in switzerland, italy and austria,and the citiy FREIBURG in Germany. but in the moment it seems to be very good

  82. City: Nosovice - Czech (Hyundai)
    Thank you and never know the exact release date?

    ReplyDelete
  83. You should atleast add all the countries that are in the european union. You dodn't add Slovenia, Romania, Bulgaria, maybes some other ones, and you should add the european part of Russia, tahat would be cool.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Hi!

    I love that you have added so many cities, looks awesome! As a scandinavian I would love to see at least one scandinavian country too. It wouldn`t be hard to make a danish city for instance, just some miles above from Kiel. A city in southern Sweden shouldn`t be that hard either. Since you had much of southern Europe in ETS1, (Italy, Spain, Portugal, southern France etc) some northern countries would be awesome in this game! :)

    Also, one thing that could improve the game and make it more real, is different speed limits on the motorways in the different countries. Make for instance free speed some places in Germany, where the AI drives really fast, that would be amazing! As a truck driver you would need to focus more on the traffic, and the countries will feel more different to drive in.

    Best regards from Norway

    ReplyDelete
  85. Baltic please! (Estonia, latvia and Lithuainia)

    ReplyDelete
  86. Nice to hear you are planning to make a denser infrastructure. To me this is far more important than adding whole Europe to the map.
    Love it so far and I hope all people will buy your game so big patches can be released after distribution

    ReplyDelete
  87. Scs your doing a great job however i do think that more citys needs to be added mayby you could do addons or expantion packs.

    ReplyDelete
  88. It already looks like more cities than German Truck Simulator, stretching across a greater amount of land. And with the UK, it will be even better. And after you do some other stuff, it will really be great. I'm glad you guys are showing stuff like this, so we can get an overview of what the game will be like. Thank you for staying up so late to post such great news.

    ReplyDelete
  89. After the release of the game based on the sales you could decide to provided the DLC with various content: such as new maps or new gadget or new additional liveries for trucks or new types of trailers, etc. etc. Just a bit of fantasy, they do so many software companies, is an intelligent way to increase the longevity of the product, to whet the interest of the customer and of course to earn extra money.

  92. Looks very nice, although I would have liked to see the Nordic countries too. But that's not a big loss, I will buy the game no matter what.

    And please people, buy the game if you are going to play it. I know that even many of the people posting comments on this blog will just download a pirated version. It's sad, because SCS deserves and needs the money.
    If I ever win a lottery, I hope you take donations. :)

  93. Very nice work SCS!!!Please add the other countries of europe union!!!Greetings from GREECE!!!

    ReplyDelete
  94. guys come on, I hope this is far from being complete - this begs to change, I know UK will be added up but Spain, Portugal, Italy - and then the eastern Europe with so many interesting roads through Slovenia-Hungary-Romania to at least another 5-6 cities in Poland (!)

    ReplyDelete
  95. I would suggest a system that would allow more random delivery points than just a warehouse. Something along the lines of every gas station can receive petrol from somewhere, however when you deliver you have to drive empty back to the petrol hub. Or the container lots that were scattered around ET would accept "old" containers for restoration, then you would get a new container at that location and take it to get your next load.

    ReplyDelete
  96. As far as the map is concerned, I would suggest something along the line of Train Simulator and the expansion system they have.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Really guys: I'm not one of these people who keep saying "Oh I want Romania in the game! Plzplz", but seriously: this is quite a disappointment. Ofcourse, the cities which will be in the game will probably be awesome, to say the least, but I'm afraid the game will feel quite.. homogenous.

    I have ofcourse played German Truck Simulator and while I liked the cities, the countryside was mostly the same. You've picked a region of Europe which ofcourse is not entirely the same, but which looks so. To me it looks like you just took German Truck Simulator, added a few cities around and ofcourse added a lot of non-scenery related stuff.

    You spent a lot of time in this game and it shows. It's okay, but it's more like a game which should be called "German Truck Simulator: Crossing the Border". The game revolves around Germany and at times you get to visit a part of a neighbouring country. If you're able to, I would really recommend you to expand the covered land to the west: southern France, Spain and Portugal. This is not motivated by the 'oh it's my homecountry, please add it'-motivation: it's because this part of Europe is entirely different in terms of climate, people and, most importantly, scenery. The landscape in northern Germany is very different from the landscape in southern Portugal, but you know this ofcourse, so that shouldn't be a surprise. What I'm trying to say is: try to add some countries which will add some variation to the 'cold' northern countries like Germany and The Netherlands.

    It is a good start, certainly: you've spent a lot of man-hours and it shows. You now possess the perfect opportunity to expand the playable region which is an opportunity you should definitely use, as it will greatly benefit the overall game experience and most probably sales. We have been waiting for a while for this game now, but trust me: we would all rather wait a year longer than to get our hands on an unfinished game which has so much more potential in it.
    Keep up the good work,
    Sybren P.

    ReplyDelete
  98. agree Sybren P.

    but they would just ask for help on building a map, out there is so many crazy talented modders....yeah we know that after release we need make some changes here and there, like always....keep going SCS.

  101. NOOOO!!!
    What happened with the Italy, or Spain? Where is west part of France, where is Portugal? :(

    ReplyDelete
  102. full list of cities in ETS2 according to what is seen on the map:
    POLAND
    Wroclaw, Poznan, Szczecin
    CZECH REPUBLIC
    Praha, Brno
    SLOVAKIA
    Bratislava
    AUSTRIA
    Vienna, Linz, Salzburg, Innsbruck
    ITALY
    Verona, Milan, Torino
    SWITZERLAND
    Geneve, Zurich, Bern
    FRANCE
    Lyon, Dijon, Metz, Strasbourg, Reims, Paris, Lille, Calais (port)
    BENELUX
    Luxembourg, Liege, Bruxelles, Gent, Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Gronigen (port?)
    GERMANY
    Dresden, Berlin, Rostock, Magdebourg, Leipzig, Erfurt, Frankfurt, Kiel (port), Hamburg, Brema, Hanover, Kassel, Norymberg, Munchen, Stuttgart, Manheim, Dortmund, Cologne, Dusseldorf, Essen, Osnabruck

    That's 52, so I assume that the UK that is said to be added will have other 8 cities - my guesses are:
    UK
    Dover (port), London, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff , Liverpool, Manchester, Glasgow

    cheers!

  103. I agree with most of the posts here.. I'm also not a type of whining ass, that keeps muttering add my country or I will kill you but I was waiting a long, LONG time for this to be revealed as it's already over 2 years you SCS is working on the game and I thought it's going to blow my head off - I thought that was the reason behind WHY the game is taking so long to produce..I thought I was going to see really magnificient EUROPE as in the title of the game. From Portugal to Baltic States (yes, they are in UE now!) on East..from beautiful sceneries of Balcans on the South (heck, maybe even a bit of wild Turkey, at least the European to Istambul!) to freezing lands od northern Scandinavia..and instead I, as a normal European guy living somewhere and is supposed to buy the game, will get half of the game cities in Germany.
    What a dissapointment.

    ReplyDelete
  104. seriously SCS haven't you thought that while making half of the ETS2 dedicated to German market where you will sell now...100k copies, you could have made twice as much if you have instead left Germany with nice, round 10 cities and went for whole Spain, Portgual, whole Poland, Romania, Turkey, Croatia, Greece,Norway, Sweden, Finland..make another few cities there and you would get so much more attention from people in those territories then..for me easy calculation 100k Germans vs 500k of the buyers from those countries above which you won't get.
    Shame to lose it like that!!

  105. I want turkey greece and the oter european states

  106. 50+ Cities is great news, will be just like the good old days of 18 wos :)

    ReplyDelete
  107. looking at first at this map is quite a shock, it seems such a small region covered-but then i start counting and it's over 50 cities, which means around 60 when you are done with UK..and I start to imagine what great game it will be with such a density and further addons..good job SCS

    ReplyDelete
  108. hey scs , very nice work !!
    as someone else said before , it would be very nice some cities of greece to be included!

    ReplyDelete
  109. Hello could you put Macedonia with cities: Skopje,Bitola please thank you :D

    ReplyDelete
  110. Well - when it was clear that map will cover only "central" Europe and UK, I was absolutely OK with that, because I expected for months that for example Czech Republic will be made way more detailed and let's say five biggest cities will be included. I'm sure that Prague and Brno are made well (of course I remember screenshots of Prague circle and other CZ screens too); but why there are not Pilsen, Hradec Kralove and Ostrava? I see much smaller cities on the map!

    Same thing with Austria and Slovakia. Sure, in case of Slovakia it's obvious that Bratislava is on east border of current map, but Zilina isn't much more eastwards and should be inculede. And there is space for Graz and Klagenfurt in Austria. And where (the hell) is Venice, probably second Italian most worldwide known city?

    So, if there will be map expansion in future, my wish would be - add remaining important cities in covered region and then consider expansion to other countries. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  111. Very nice work. We want Euro Truck Simulator 3, 4 and 5.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Add scandinavia to ets 2 please!!! including Norway, Denmark, Sweden and Finland!

    ReplyDelete
  113. There is no need to explain about the UK map not being merged in.
    Anyone who keeps on checking this site would of seen the Eurotunnel post, and where does the Eurotunnel go between? UK and France. Anyway, I'm very impressed with the progress that has been made, and this looks like it will be a few million times better than any other game I've seen!

    Well done SCS :)

    ReplyDelete
  114. I am REALLY disappointed about you. How could you not add so many countries where you know you have so many fans? How could you? Why would anybody from another country buy this if his country is not included? Of course we will modify it, edit the map and other stuff, but it's not the same!
    Think about this and add the other countries from the EU.

    ReplyDelete
  115. I am wondering if this is actually a teaser. If you look at the top of the picture it says "Headquarters Selection" so there could very well be more cities that aren't on this map because they don't have the headquarters option. Also we don't know how old the picture really is

    ReplyDelete
  116. Will it have garages like in G.T.Sim. ?

    ReplyDelete
  117. it's finally time to say it - the "fans" potential is not so important here, the money that flows from the markets on the other side is. I think the density and availability of cities strictly resembles the income of SCS from last years - there is no other explanation. How should we understand THIRTY cities in Germany-Austria-Switzerland region (rondomedia) vs five cities in France or THREE cities in Poland? and zero for Romania (huge numbers of fans there) or any of the Balkanic countries (Greece??). Hate pirates, buy the games so maybe your territories will be included next time or in expansions, now it's only the money and the Germans are paying it seems..

    ReplyDelete
  118. Well, why don't you release game (Not yet) with a decent map (Such as this, include a few countries) and continue on more maps/places after that, release as DLC's, paid or free.

    ReplyDelete
  119. I totally agree with Danyiel West. But if they are going to add all European countries, it could be possible that the game will be postponed untill the end of 2012.

    ReplyDelete
  120. I agree about Croatia. It would mean alot for game. I would like to see in some patch that you upgrade the map with balkan countrys or even adriatic route all down to Greece and Turkey.

  123. Splendid coverage. Can't wait till release. Keep up the outstanding work SCS Software team.

    ReplyDelete
  124. So, what is this? German Truck Simulator 2? Well, I guess the name "Euro Truck Simulator" fits very well after all, just like European Union is run by Germany and France.

    I'm kinda disappointed right now, because Europe is so much more than just Germany and the few countries around it.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Esse Jogo ta muito bom nao vejo a hora de lançar otimo trabalho SCS belissimo trabalho

    ReplyDelete
  126. all the true facts were stated already- Europe as a whole is such a beauty when you think of Italian landscapes, Spanish magnifique scenery, Croatian coastline, Slovenia mountaineery roads, Romania views and many others..Germany is boring as hell comparing to that, deal with it.

    ReplyDelete
  127. erics

    Definitely more than 60 City, UK is more than 8 city,Because UKTS has 18 city, ETS2 UK will be more

    ReplyDelete
  128. Quantity doesn't count but the quality certainly will. Let's have what they been working on and hopefully when released it will be obvious what SCS have been doing all this time. More quantity can follow after release by way of patch/dlc.

    ReplyDelete
  129. From the map it looks you're still not finished with cities.. So I hope, you'll add Kosice, and wont let Hungary and Poland look that empty.
    Thanks SCS!
    Good luck from Slovakia

    ReplyDelete
  130. true I think that the cities I listed will be there but the more the better - maybe even 18 cities would be awesome for the Brits.

    ReplyDelete
  131. people who say that this is little, check this out:
    http://i52.tinypic.com/21bljjl.jpg

    Sure there might be "more" countries included (Spain) but look at the number of cities from original Euro Truck Simulator 1. The quantity and I hope the quality in ETS2 will be smashing the first game like 100x times!

    ReplyDelete
  132. I have to apologise for my earlier comment. I should be thanking you for your awesome work and effort you have put in this game, instead of complaining. Like some have said, quality over quantity.

    So thank you SCS, can't wait for the game to be released. Hopefully it will be in the Nordic stores right from the start.

    ReplyDelete
  133. thats good news, the map :D

    good work scs, are that all motorways or is this an older mapview??

    ReplyDelete
  134. nice number of comments - I was like whoa what happened in just one day. But I understand all the emotions flying here - myself I would love to see some of Slovenia but I understand that it might not be possible because there are few reasons.
    The first is most obvious, money. Slovenia isn't a good place for SCS to get money I don't know if there are any of those games in normal shops here I think not. So making Slovenia if not necessary (like alongtheway Switzerland they couldn't leave like a big gaping nothing there) is not along the concept of getting the money back.
    It's good that someone has posted here a link to the map from Euro truck simulator (uk addition) where you have like 20 cities..simple roads and nothing more. Here you have already over 50 cities and without UK (maybe another 15 cities) so together 65 cities..that is a very impressive numbers but I think scs got caught themself in a trap-meaning they had such a big number of cities and roads in central europe but to make France Spain Italy Poland Romania like that too would mean creating another 100 cities. So I understand the reason behind and I say - thank you SCS I hope to get your game and maybe someone will make some mod with my country.

    ReplyDelete
  135. ===>> All users here on this blog! please buy ets 2 for awesome ets 3!! Looking on this map im wondering if there will be spain? Anyway its fuc**** great scs :) Keep it up! :)

    ReplyDelete
  136. Ohh and you can also see the roads on this picture! :D if you look closley

    ReplyDelete
  137. Something i don't understand is why you don't have enlarged the scale of the Map.

    ReplyDelete
  138. yes, you can see the roads and motorways on the map, but the question is if that all roads or is this not topical.

    ReplyDelete
  139. They should really start to work hard, If we could help with the game in any way like translating and modeling and other stuff then they wouldn't waste so much time.

    Plz SCS offer help to us, there will be some people that can do Textures,Moddeling,Translating and more.
    You would get good help from us and choose the best projects to use it in your game.

    ReplyDelete
  140. If you're interested, I ironed the road network in color. To better appreciate the work done.

    I repeat one of my posts so that it read:

    "It's really a good job. I'm pretty sure you will do some update that will add on country or city.

    But what is this in this image is already a very good thing. Especially not seen yet the cities of the United Kingdom.

    I understand the disappointment of some people who do not find their country, but we must understand that it's not that easy for SCS Software, and try to have hope they will release patches to add some other country, I am thinking of Spain or Portugal.

    I think you, the development team and the person who post the news here, must be very tired. When I see the time when the news are posted (even on weekends, few people work on weekends), I see you have a lot of courage and I guess you must all be united, make more hours to try to keep the studio.

    I updates the blog very often, at least ten times a day. It's like a drug for me and others I think. We all love your work and tonight, I wish once again to thank you.

    And I wish you courage.
    Good luck to you."

    And also:

    "Improve and facilitate the map editor would be good .."

  142. i personally think that you guys are doing a amazing job on this and i hope that you continue to make it even better. i just want to say that dont base it all on the initial sales remember that there will be a lot of people buying it at christmas :) keep up the great work guys.

    ReplyDelete
  143. Nice work, Titou! Thanks. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  144. I was really looking for the base of the whole europe. I wasn't expecting that SCS would have created all the roads in europe, but I would loved if You had added the base for scandinavia, finland etc.. Just to make it easier for map-creators to add the parts of europe You didn't have time/money to create.. I did suggest this already before in this blog, many months ago.. I didn't ask to model the whole europe, only asked if You could add the base for whole europe. This is really disappointing to see that there is only the central europe covered in the base map.. The area You have created is going to look fabulous, but there are many people who like to drive in their own country, and the coverage of base map just makes it more difficult for map-creators to add new areas to the map!!

    ReplyDelete
  145. @Titou thats cool :)
    Blue = motorways
    Yellow = Small roads?

    ReplyDelete
  146. Please put Serbia in game or in other patches and Whole Balkan... Sorry on my bad english

  147. @Luka please buy ets 2 so they will do it ^^

    ReplyDelete
  148. why is scandinavian not in the game

    ReplyDelete
  149. mikEWronaPL (Dobry pomysl) Good idea, The people who find it dissapoiting that there's no country they live in, then they need to buy the game to get their updates in the future procces of the game which gives us more patches and functions to the game.

  153. Isn't it good enough? 3 times bigger map, with 3 times bigger cities and denser web of routes between them...

    Stop complaining and support their work. They are working while most of us are sitting here thinking the things are easy to do.

  159. Bigger cityes in the game?

    ReplyDelete
  160. actually I think Hungary (probably Budapest) has a big chance to still get into the game, the area seems to be lightened up so I think there are still thinking or connecting it already to the main game.
    Great job, happy to see that the game will be at least 3 times bigger then the first part. Hope my wallet will survive that ;)

    ReplyDelete
  161. i like this concept-i would just wish that SCS wrap it up with what countryes you see here. So full UK france poland slovenia hungary

  163. So... the game is ready to be finished?

    ReplyDelete
  164. Why do you left out nearly whole E 35 the only part you built is Gotthard. But this Highway is very important, connects Northern Sea (Rotterdam) with Mediterranean Sea (Roma). Please don't forget the Backbones of European trucking industry.

  165. at all

    please note that this picture is a WIP (work in progress)

    ReplyDelete
  166. so it seems that we are waiting now for UK to be done (and maybe Hungary?) and the game should be out in what..2 months?

  167. Please, make Scandinavians and all balkans countrys (Serbia and around)

    ReplyDelete
  168. When you say denser Road Coverage, Does that mean the normal roads wee see every day driving round and also the roads that make up our routes through country side. Will we see more of the areas that most hgv drivers have to navigate day in day out?

  169. Where is the scandinavian countries??
    NORWAY,SWEDEN, FINLAND AND DENMARK MUST BE INGAME :D

  170. I am a truck driver from FINLAND yes i drive a real truck in here and i drive the ets simulator games too and my biggest hope is thy see Finland and the other nordic countrys in the new ETS2 map and i do not mean a mod butt i mean a real map that has been made by the good people of the scs company so PLEASE CAN I DRIVE IN FINLAND in the new ets2 game.

    ReplyDelete
  171. Where is Spain?
    Spain is one of the countries with more trucks.

    ReplyDelete
  172. ^ NORWAY-TRUCKER: Finland is not part of Scandinavia.

    But... anyway, it's more or less a central european sim. and Scandinavia is once again left out. I'm dissapointed after over 2 years of waiting, but it's your call.
    And i'm sure the game itself going to be great, and congrats to all the germans.

    ReplyDelete
  173. How I send a message some time later, you can make more games of "one country" (German Truck Simulator, UK Truck Simulator), and make a code that "unit" the differents maps that user has installed in your computer.

    ReplyDelete
  174. Truth is that ETS2 map should be expanded in future to north and to south, primarily for very different scenery. I think we all loved PTTM/Haulin maps just because of this: snowy Canada, moderate Midwest, tropical Florida, desert in Mexico... and Europe has all these clima too - snowy Scandinavia, desert in Spain, even signs of tropical clima in very south Balkans.

    But first thing to do is to complete central/moderate part of Europe. Only Germany and Benelux are done well. And UK, of course, it only need to be finished.

    Yes, time is short, it doesn't need to be done now. SCS could release addons (even paid DLCs, I want to support and they deserves it) some months after game launch. But I pray the first addon will complete central Europe.

    ReplyDelete
  175. People remember that this shot's taken long time ago .. Wich means the map's maybe now twice or tripple bigger !

    Good Work SCS :)!!

    ReplyDelete
  176. ^ Nope. This is current and probably final version of map for _initial_ release. Only UK will be added, they only still merging it from UKTS to ETS2 and improving.

    Of course expansions are likely, and this is what this topic is about. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  177. @ Anonymous regarding Finland: It is very much Scandinavia. Scandinavia consists of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, in alphabetical order. (c:

    With some luck (read: people buying the game, not pirating it) we will at least get it later, in expansions.

  180. I would rather wait 'til 2015 just to make this game feel like the REAL Euro Truck Simulator. It's a disappointment for me to wait so long just to see this. I thought ETS2 will be better, with bigger map ( oh yes, SCS already did that ), with more countries.. but I'm having doubts now into buying this game.. ETS2 is a wonderful game to me looking at the improvement they have done, but I think looking at this, it doesn't suite my expectations anymore.. Sorry SCS..

  185. ^ TruckerGal:

    "Scandinavia[1] is a cultural, historical and ethno-linguistic region in northern Europe that includes the three kingdoms of Denmark, Norway and Sweden, characterized by their common ethno-cultural heritage and language. Modern Norway and Sweden proper[2] are situated on the Scandinavian Peninsula, whereas modern Denmark is situated on the Danish islands and Jutland. The term Scandinavia is usually used as a cultural term, but in English usage, it is occasionally confused with the purely geographical term Scandinavian Peninsula, which overlaps with Scandinavia. Sometimes the term Scandinavia is also taken to include Iceland, the Faroe Islands, and Finland, on account of their historical association with the Scandinavian countries.[3] Such usage, however, is considered inaccurate in Scandinavia, where the term Nordic countries instead refers to a broader group comprising both Scandinavia itself as well as countries and territories that are historically associated with the Scandinavian countries, including Finland, Iceland, and the Faroe Islands."

  190. ETS2 real map and game map Proportion is 1:10
    real 1000KM : game 100KM

    GTS is 1:20
    real 1000KM : game 50KM


    ETS is 1:50
    real 1000KM : game 20KM


    ETS2 of Germany is 1:10

    Therefore ETS2 scale is huge

  193. you did a great job. this is an incredible map and i think that with the other things of the game like costumize and route advisor this will be a beautiful game. but i think that you should delete some cities from german and added some cities in spain france portugal denmark ireland and also scandinavia, only 3 or 4 cities in each country. would be great. but that still a very very beautiful map. good job
