ETS2 Freight

In the old Euro Truck Simulator, the player/driver has at all times been basically self-employed, owner-operator one-man company. In GTS and UKTS, there was a stage when the player was forced by the game to work as an employee for some time, but later this changed completely as the player has started his own company. In some of our older 18 Wheels of Steel games, you may remember that we even had three evolutionary stages as the player progressed "from rags to riches" (quiz for veterans, was it Across America or Pedal to the Metal?), and we also tried a different approach where the main menu of the game would give the player the choice of either campaign game or a quick-game with just one arbitrary delivery.

All this was done as we were trying to satisfy the various types of players of our games - the older players want as deep simulation of every aspect of a trucker's life as possible, but the younger players often just look for a quick-to-get-into driving experience involving big vehicles, they don't want to worry about managing a company and wait hours and hours to see it grow.

In Euro Truck Simulator 2, we would like to pick and combine the best of all these approaches and give the player more freedom of choosing his or her playing style without artificially breaking up the game into any separate stages or separate play modes.

So at all times, you will always have the choice of getting hired for a wage and sit behind the steering wheels of somebody else's truck (equivalent of employee stage or a quick job), but also - once you start building your own truck fleet - drive your own truck and offer full logistics services. You can switch between the two freely: you may already have a nice small company going, but why not break the monotony when an interesting offer comes for a one-time job, especially if they are offering special conditions for an expert help, or driving an exciting tractor that you yourself still haven't managed to afford?

This kind of freedom of choice should accommodate different play styles in the same framework of how the virtual world is functioning, and give the player satisfaction of progress. For somebody who never bothers to worry about starting his company, he can just hop from job to job, and still see progress - as next to his wage he would gain XP points to help his personal growth. For somebody who is keen to start building a trucking empire as soon as possible, he can get a bank loan early on and never look back to working for somebody else.

  4. Awesome, this game has every thing that goes through my head or have applied this game.
    With this the game more and more controlled while the driver freer to choose options that allow the most comfortable, or more playing time direct the ETS 2.
    But for me, I would like to make a loan to buy my own truck and make my business grow to become a major carrier.

  10. I'm very excited about this now! :D
    One of the things I missed from your later games was the lack of delivery times (or did I just not find that feature?) so I'm glad to see that making a comeback.
    The map looks much larger as well, or at least seems to have more cities, which is good.
    I think I'm going to pre-order this as soon as I can! ;)

  15. SCS, this is perfect solution! I always enjoyed starting as employee and then building own company and care about economy (that three-level model from PTTM was excellent), but I understand other players wants just driving. Now everybody will be satisfied. :-) Thank you very, very much!

    1. the thing I wanted to have, would be having a "re-hire" function, so you could choose a company to work for if you wanted to work with one using your vehicle.

      It would be like being contracted by a company to haul their loads all of the time.

  24. As someone said earlier do not forget that some of us are female gamers .

    UKTS and GTS were really annoying in that all the 5 star drivers you could hire were male . All the female drivers were 2 or 3 star .

    Is it going to be like the original where you have to unlock each country .

    Looking forward to building a trucking empire and hope that you can repaint and Signwrite your company trucks and maybe see them on the road .

    ReplyDelete
  40. While I appreciate the fact that you'll be able to drive different trucks on each job (I was tired of being stuck with one truck all the time like in the previous games), I hope you'll improve that map a bit. Especially since you have ANOTHER SIX MONTHS to work on it, as you decided to screw us up and delay the game for such a long time. UK, Germany, Belgium and Netherlands have a fair number of cities, but come on ... ONLY 6 FRENCH CITIES?! For fuck's sake ... France is a country the size of Germany ... it should have as many accessible cities as Germany has. The same thing goes for Italy and Poland. Also, the Czech Republic should have more than 2 cities, and the Southern part of Austria should also be populated. I understand that you can't include all the countries in Europe at this time, but at least make the countries that you decided to include in the game realistic enough. As in, fill them all up with lots of cities. Also, it wouldn't hurt if you included Hungary in the game, as it's not a very big country. And perhaps the westernmost cities of Romania too.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah, I agree. There should be enough time to "populate" game world a little bit more.

      You know - in one videogame TV show here in CZ, there was a preview on ETS2 and Pavel said they now have 3 Czech cities. It was few months ago. Of course we don't know if today's screenshot are made on actual map or on some previous version (with 2 CZ cities), but it sounds to me like there is a possibility - possibility! - we can look forward for more cities...

      On the other hand, now it's a game with 60+ cities, I must take hat off even if it's final map!

      Delete
    2. Don't be ridiculous.Size of the map and many cities is not important for good and realistic simulation.In game "OMSI Bus simulator" there are only two cities,game is hyper-realistic and there is feeling like driving a real bus-this is most important in all serious simulations.

      Content is more important than quantity.

      Delete
    3. It's funny, some people want lots of countries involved in the game. If they put whole France, Italy, etc, in the Game you get a big distance between cities and a lot of highways. If they do that, people are going to scream that the density of B-Roads is to low. I think the map is just fine: smaller, but a better level of detail.

      SCS, I'm impressed!

      Delete
    4. Size of map is fine, no doubt about it! But it's true that some countries could have one or two more cities. And yeah, why not smaller cities, accesible only by B-Roads (although I prefer highways).

This map is really good no matter what anyone says. And if they would bother to take the time to actually read recent posts, they would know that what is covered now is all that will be covered. And I'm happy with the map, it certainly is far more expansive than GTS or UKTS combined! Great job SCS :)

    ReplyDelete
  77. Lots of people in here ask for multiplayer. I was thinking about that one day, and to make this game multiplayer in the future it would be cool to link several simulatorgames online.

    Example: You play forkliftsimulator and work as a forkliftdriver in a city and have to get to the terminal. To get there you have to take the bus. A guy/girl playing Busdriver simulator drive you to the bus-stop at the terminal. At the terminal you start loading and unloading Trucks and trailers from guys/girls playing Eurotruck simulator and UKts or GTS depending on where they are. The Trucks need fuel and Gas-stations run out empty on fuel, a person playing Tank truck simulator have to drive around and refill the Gas-stations. People playing Farming simulator harvest grain and cattle and need to get them transported and Eurotruck players come to the farm and pick up.


    As the truck drives around you meet the other players on the Highways and you could flash with your headlights or something.

    Linking games up like this, would make it really cool playing together, cause all would have to cooporate and fans all over the world could play together.

    This is not someting that would happen overnight, but I think this would make simulatorgames more interesting and you could play them online or with lan.

    The way I see it, you could do this in two ways: Buying a simulatorgame and link it online playing with others or you have a website where you can choose what kind of simulatorgame you would like to play.

    What do you guys/girls think about this idea?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Don't stop! I believe there is much more potential. Someone who playing Farming simulator kills chicken on a accident. But someone else who plays Skyrim can arouse whole village. Villagers thinks about revenge, but they don't have horses fast enough for pursuit. Never mind, they can hire an Assasin who actualy plays Hot Pursuit. Assasin takes a job, but only under condition he will have a new identity and a new life for rest of life. Luckily guy who plays The Sims can alter his body beyond recognition and other guy, who plays Flight Simulator, can transport him to a tropical island (created in Tropico). But his plane is assaulted by terrorists and team of counter-terrorists from Counter Strike loses their battle, as well as S.W.A.T and Rainbow Six. Plane crashes in desert and pilot meets nice girl called Elika who tells him he's a Prince of Persia. Of course everybody can dig, craft and build world made of cubes.

    1. I agree to this, just like most actual firms that have different types of transport they take, i think that you should be able to win contracts so like you win a contract for a month taking poultry from a farm to a destination, having you to make you use your resourses i.e hired drivers and cabs, (maybe rented cabs), after the month you could automatically rewin the contract if you have furfilled your contract agreement, otherwise you have to rebid for the contract, and the more good rep you have the better and more contracts that come your way, visa versa

  96. This looks very good.
    I am the type who likes realism.
    Then I hoped that the game had a system similar to real life.
    But this way was great, because as you yourself said, appeals to everyone.
    Here in Brazil, truckers like to work with independent truck and trailer. On the simulator and I ended up liking more than have my truck and load trailer of impreza.


    I read here on the blog it would be nice to have more interactive interiors. With the buttons movin , windows open...
    Would be nice if the doors and other parts of the cabin opened.

    Well, to answer you, I DO like ETS a lot. It's just that SCS doesn't seem to want to show us its full potential and doesn't want to listen to our demands, to what we want to game to be like. For example, they refuse to add more cities to the countries they included in the game, they refuse to add pedestrians, they refuse to make the driver able to get out of his truck and walk around at rest places and gas stations etc. etc. Not to mention of the shit they've tried to throw at us regarding the released date ...

    All of this things I don't like about SCS' attitude make me not want to support them, and hence I will pirate the game. After all, why would I support with my money a company which doesn't give a fuck about the demands and wishes of the customers? That doesn't mean I won't like ETS2. The game looks great as it is, but I feel that if SCS listened to more demands from the fans, it could have been even greater. And since it is the only game of the truck simulator genre to be released, I'm going to enjoy it as it is, and knowing that this is not its full potential and that the SCS team wipes their asses with my demands as a fan, I will enjoy the game without supporting the company with my money. I like the game, but not the company which develops it, hence I will play the game without paying any sum of money to the devs. Is that clear enough?

    Oh, and don't give me that "SCS IS A SMALL COMPANY AND IT'S GONNA GO BANKRUPT AND DIE IF YOU DON'T GIVE IT YOUR MONEY". I don't give a fuck about the fate of SCS, just as they don't give a fuck about what I want. We're not some charity organization and we'll definitely not give money to SCS out of pity, just because they're a small company. They have to deserve it first. And they should start by listening to what we want.

      3. You say "They refuse.." , have you read the "Letter to the Community" ? It clearly says that, they don't have enough man power to make it, and wich they belive will be able to do in the next games/patch releases if ETS2 have sucess..

    4. This is for Neluto....I see all kinds of "DEMANDS" in your messages. Tell me please, are you a share holder in the SCS company? Do you pay their wages, do you sit on the Board of Directors as well? Didn't think so!!
      As fans of SCS's games, we have no right to demand anything from them. They are willing to listen and implement what they can, but the final decision is theirs and only theirs!
      I believe that if they were to use all the suggestions we as a group have asked for, that it wouild take up to five years to build the game and the cost would be tremendous. As a company that would be a killer!
      You are entitled to your opinions and if you aren't happy with SCS's product,then don't buy it and try not to spoil it all for the rest of us.

    5. Not having enough man power is a pretty convenient excuse, don't you think?

      I didn't imply that they should add in the game ALL the demands of the players, because that would of course be impossible to achieve. But, if they had the minimum respect for the community of fans, they would add the things that a lot of people constantly request in their posts. One of those things is the presence of pedestrians on the streets. A lot of people have demanded this, plus it has been achieved in Trucks and Trailer, so they can't blame this one on the lack of man power or on incapacity. The only reasonable explanation for them not feeding this demand of ours is the lack of respect for us. The same thing goes for adding more cities. As I said, I understand they can't add all the countries in Europe in the game, but the countries they add should be complete, and not have only a quarter of their size covered with cities.

    here are some of my demands along with my comments about them
    - I would like if it's possible to accomplish the truck scania longline and also other models of trucks it would also be great
    http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/196/526101109663b9209c4cz.jpg/
    - I would like if it's possible and I think you can do this because I think it is easy like: if you could truck headlight rays while moving right or left steer in a curve for better visibility
    - Also I would like if it's possible to add more cities or countries of the European Union because many countries have joined in this union many countries. I'm sure
    - I would like if I may make other models to be launched like trucks: Volvo FH16 Mercedes MP4 daf xf and others
    - Also I would like if we could use at lamps bulbs and xenon lights about like if I may have to add neon lamps under the truck for its beauty
    - I would like if we can create our own company if I want to add the option to create a logo to buy trailers, trucks and staff to add a skin of our

  116. SCS please make possibly(if you can) to wear and damage truck parts such as engine,transmission,tires,brakes (not need a visual damage) only damage indicator and their impact on driving performance.For example: worn-out tires causes more slip on rain or possibility to blowout,too much braking causes the faster brakes wasting -that we must service and change vehicle parts with time if we want to be safe on the road.This possibility would make a more dynamic and unpredictable gameplay. Sorry for my english.

    @Neluţu
    They are not refusing to implement what their fans demand. They've already explained they have their limitations, in terms of man power and time, not to mention budget. I wouldn't be so harsh. They will give us the best game they can deliver and, probably, the most beautiful on the market. ETS 3 will be even more beautiful and comprehensive, but that depends mainly on us buying their products. So, if you want your ideas and wishes implemented in the next release, or, maybe, in a future patch, be sure to buy the full version. I will.

      The pedestrian thing was achieved once, so they have NO FUCKING EXCUSE FOR THAT ONE !!!

      Delete
    2. OK. I am trying to see your point.
      I do admit the pedestrian feature is already developed and would be easily implemented. But, they've also mentioned, in an earlier post, that this could pose a problem, from the content censorship. Being able to run over representations of human beings could categorize their game in a certain "minimum age restriction" area.
      Since they intended this game to be playable by all ages, they fear some "smart" authorities might restrict it.
      I think we all know to what extent some crazy people will go to have something banned, just because they think it's bad. I remember, a few years ago, they banned a certain episode of Tom & Jerry cartoons, from UK, just because the cat was, at a specific moment, smoking a cigar.
      These things happen and they can't afford having their work, hence their revenue, restricted. I must admit I understand their point of view, although I would love to see a lively populated environment, during my trips. But I (as you, probably) am already beyond that age when actions like running over pedestrians in a game might seem interesting. Keep in mind not everyone else is.

      Delete
    3. Furthermore...
      I tried, a year ago maybe, to build a map of Romania, in v 1.3. It took me two months just to build a mock-up of my home town. After 6 months I had three cities, but rather poorly represented, since I was running out of ideas towards what should be included in each one (buildings, companies etc.) But my main problem was the size of the map. Since I tried making a single country map, I ended up not having enough space for all those cities. In the end it was taking just a few minutes to drive from one city to the other.
      I went on extending the map, just to realize it's taking me huge amount of time just to create the roads connecting the cities. You can't just have a straight line. You need highs and lows, forests and fields, various features along the road. Hence, I gave up.
      On my most optimistic estimation it would have taken me about 5 years to finish a rough version. By that time, it would have been obsolete, since the game would have, probably, reached version 3.0 or even more, and my work wouldn't have been compatible anymore.
      Since then, I am amazed by the possibility of creating an entire world but, at the same time, I realized the enormity of such an effort.
      And I didn't have to bother with gameplay, building the models, creating signs etc. not to mention research to make it all resemble reality. More than this, I made everything out of passion, pure hobby. These people need to feed their families, pay their rents etc. For them it is a business, and business decisions have nothing to do with dreaming. On the contrary, having this blog and listening to what people have to say is quite a lot.
      Therefore, if you don't really know how hard it is or how much resources this work requires, how can you blame anyone for delaying a release date or not including certain features?
      Maybe if you'd consider their product for what it really is - a product - you wouldn't feel so angry. If it's "available in a store near you" and you find the price to be acceptable, you buy it. If not - you don't. And you don't break into the store to steal it, right?

    I will say it again: If you had a minimum decency you'd give us some answers. As I said, pedestrians were implemented once in Trucks and Trailers and it was pretty much fine. You couldn't run them over and no age restriction was set just because there were pedestrians on the street. So that fucking excuse won't work. There is no valid reason as for why pedestrians won't be there in ETS2. And instead of at least trying to come up with a better excuse, you delete the posts which ask for it. Nicely done, SCS!

Take rockstar games for an example,and how much are they listening? They don't care, for people will BUY there games anyway. You're nothing but a disrespectful dude, that doesn't have patient. Giving SCS software 6 more months, mean a much better games, and hopefully many new features. However the most people here are understandable and positive about it, but you're the only one complaining and nobody cares!! So SCS software keep deleting his posts, and you should ban him too or something, so stupid people has nothing to do here!!!!

You are forgot to make best physics of truck and he is, When we drive and don't push button for acceleration, truck's stop for 2-3 seconds, he don't have any inertia and stop fully for stupid 2-3 seconds. This is so stupid and isn't realistic anymore.

    Also we should to have Neutral gear when we drive with 90km/h sometimes i want to released truck of inertia, maybe on someone hill !!!
