Gas stations again

In our quest to portray the individual parts of Europe covered by the game as realistically as possible, we are trying to bring real world brands into the game. Of course we know that truck brands are the most important for you, and rest assured that we are putting a lot of effort into trying to secure as many of them as possible, but the other building blocks of the game play an important role, too.

Gas stations are a very visible element of the game just as they are essential for any real driver. We think that finding recognizable names in the game would help the players consider our world a lot more believable.

With the help of our Polish publishing partner CD Projekt, we are now in the process of approaching Orlen, one of the biggest refinery companies in Europe. Keep your fingers crossed that we can add another notional brick to the building of Euro Truck Simulator 2. The more such building blocks we can pile up, the higher importance the game will achieve in the eyes public and media, and the better our position for continuing to grow the game in the future.

You can help us here, too - when we show this YouTube clip to Orlen in a few days, it would be great if we could boast about a high number of views achieved quickly, and positive reception from our not-so-small hard core fan community. Would you like to have Orlen, Benzina and Star gas stations in Poland, Czech Republic and Germany? Let us know!

What you will see in this movie is just a quick prototype, to present the potential of the game to feature  the brands. In general whenever we can get a brand owner on our side, we are ready to give them dedicated attention to make sure they are comfortable with the detail and fidelity of their stuff as presented in the game world.



Disclaimer: appearance of real world brands in the finished game is subject to approval of the respective trademark owners and was used solely for the purpose of presenting the potential look-like in the game.

  2. Perfect work as aways SCS, as more brands as you get the more stable you became on the market and the more transport "friends" you gain, smart and perfect moove. It's nice to see that you didn't satisfy with just one Gas station brand, but trying to increase the number.. Perfectly done ;)

    Hope to see Actros sound session soon !

    2. Agree with ArmoredLKW. It adds a lot of realism seeing the car entering (and then stopping at) the gas station along with the truck

  4. Driving cars in gas stations! Hurray!
    Beautiful gas stations.
    Of course we are interested in original companies ingame, but try to stay real (no company in a country, where it does'nt exist)

    Good work SCS (specially the different architecture)

  5. To me the names of the petrol companies is not important . What is more important is how well the AI traffic works and whether it still just rams into you when you supposedly have right of way . The video clip showed the cars going through the petrol station so it would be important they give way when they are supposed to . Most people would not know the names of the correct fuel companies throughout Europe so would not bother too much about the name on the petrol station . game play to me is much much more important than cosmetics .

  9. Dear SCS!

    The gas stations look very good!

    Just one big question, could you please think about this refueling in the gas stations. It's quite a boring right now. Implement somekind of new way to do this.

    If you have such good stations for fuel, I personally think you will need more intresting refueling system in game!

    Best regards!

    --------------------------------------

    What the community thinks about my thought?

    1. Well, to be fair to SCS, filling gas is a boring event.

      They could probably display the types of fuel available and have the driver select one.

      They could probably show the driver getting out and actually filling the tank up.

      They could have an automated fuel dispenser which connects to the truck and fills it up with the selected fuel type.

      They could allow the driver to see messages from dispatch/owner or view status of other drivers (if the driver owns other trucks), while the tank is being filled.

      Or, they could allow the driver walk out into the store at the gas station and check local news, weather, traffic alerts (too similar to Rig'n'Roll concepts?).

    2. Maybe different prices instead of one fixed price across the board?

  10. Awesome job SCS, nothing more to say!!! :-)

    "Would you like to have Orlen, Benzina and Star gas stations in Poland, Czech Republic and Germany? Let us know!"

    Yes, I would! Real names and companies are always better than fake ones.

    ReplyDelete
  11. It would be better the company truck and gas companies come to you all as they promote rather than pray that you have to put their logo...They should pray for you to putting their logo...

    Sorry my english..

    ReplyDelete
  12. Beautiful, it's a MUST! Benzina is my favourite here in CZ and it would be great to see Orlen and Star too, of course! All three fits perfectly with the game. Going to recommend this video to my friends. Fingers crossed, you bet on it!

    P.S.: Also appreciate there are signs of AI traffic on gas stations. If it's true, then many, many thanks it's finally back - it's also important addition to realism.

  14. Outstanding work SCS, I'm blown away by everything you're trying to achieve in this simulator.

    One question though, more for the community than SCS, Where is "the real Nelutu" He hijacked the update a couple of weeks ago becasue SCS hadn't given him enough updates, he@s had 3 in as many days and where is he? Come on Nelly SCS have given you 3 very good updates this weekend at least have the good grace to comment on it. Or are you going to keep schtum until the next time you want a moan?

  16. Few Things that i noticed:

    1: AI going into Petrol Stations and tank.
    2: Nice GPS Lay out, plz also add station point on GPS if possible(Logo of the petrol station station on the GPS)
    Example: http://www.clker.com/cliparts/2/9/1/3/12073140411168771264gas%20station%20black.svg.med.png
    3: Special Place for the trucks to tank, need to do more effort in parking near the station which will be challenging and fun.
    4: Better lighting on the Station.
    5: The signs, parking and the shop are more realistic.
    6: Cars going into parking which is also really good work from the Developers Really thank you for that.
    7: Realistic Stations :D

    Ok so what I've seen from the video, you really pushed through making the AI more intelligent so if you coped with making AI going through petrol stations then I am sure that you can make a Traffic when you wait for the ferry(If it will be possible) or when you go through the motorway tolls.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. if there are any licenses they can't get making truck names "wrong" like Iveco => Ivedo there will be players modding the original trucks just like there has been done in all previous games. Unlike scs players are less likely to receive complaints or lawyers. So think this shouldn't mather :-)

  53. In spite of my differences with SCS and the things that I am not happy about, I will try to make a constructive post now.

    I have to admit that it's great that we will have real gas stations in the game. I like it that they look more realistic right now and that you can actually see cars driving there. Please, also make it so that other cars fill up with gas as well and you have to wait in line until you can park your truck near a fuel pump and fill it up.

    Also, it's good that you put Star, Benzina and Orlen there, but they are not so worldwide known. Please also add at least OMV, Agip and Shell.

    In the future I'd like to see a video about other rest places on the highway besides gas stations. I wonder if there are any of those.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yes, it's the real me. I haven't changed ... my opinions remain the same. But, since the comments had to be approved first before getting published, I focused on sharing my opinion about the gas stations. That doesn't mean that it's all pink and that I don't believe that SCS did a lot of mistake. I just referred only to the current topic, that of gas stations.

      Delete
    2. Just for the record, I'm still not going to buy ETS 2 because the line has been crossed too many times. I still believe I was made fun of by those who will later on want my money, therefore I will not give them any money.

      But as for the gas stations, I think the direction is good and if they will also add OMV, Shell and Agip I will be content with this.

      Delete
  54. Wonderful! This much better fuel stations, because this a bit like, say, more complete and more realistic, thus leaving the game more like the reality of class in Europe.

    I have a question for those who live in some corner of Europe, the price of diesel, according to what the video shows, the gas fuel, diesel was € 1.44 a liter mark, and wonder if this is the price similar in Europe, because if I convert the currency of € for real money, will give an average of $ 3.50 and it's to buy here in Brazil, two liters of fuel, I do not know if it's because in Europe there is because of the Euro, or otherwise, but who know me man, I am very grateful.

    Now I want to make a small request to SCS on trucks SCANIA, if you can put the model name in front of the truck a little below the grid, how to see the trucks SCANIA, type, R440, R, 480 .. .
    And the left of the symbol version in some trucks with V8 engines, V8 put the symbol that I know you put in the game, a video that you posted some time ago, the name of the video is called 'ETS2 Truck Customization - Scania R series'. An example is the truck Scania R730 truck the second most powerful in the world second only to the Volvo FH16 750 ...

    And one last and most important request, Good Work!

    1. SCS only made Scania R440, and R440 does not have and V8 engine, thus there won't be any V8 logo in the front. ;)

      Delete
    2. Actually you choose different type of Engine and different type of transmission in the begining of the game.. SCS made shots only with R440.. but if you look at Scania Customization you'll see that there're more engines (above 440hp) with 500 620 and 730hp ..

      Delete
    3. So expensive, I mean well; In front grille of the truck, just below the left is the name of the truck type and R440 in the other corner to the right is the symbol for trucks with V8 engines R500, R560, R620 and R730 , studied in a video of what I said on youtube, and watch when it's part of the engines.

    4. €1,44 is actually in the lower end of normal diesel prices in Europe nowadays. I Norway, and other countries too, it is not unusual to see diesel prices of 2 Euro.

      Delete
    5. Yes .. SCS should add the V8 mark, Actros has it 2 .. on the same line as the Actros sign(wich SCS need to add on the left side of the truck), but on the right side.. it's for some of the Actros engines .. as about scania every engine at/above 500hp has the V8 mark

      Delete
    6. Eric, to your question about diesel prices: yes, it's realistic, for example in Czech Republic, liter of diesel costs 36 to 37 CZK, which is € 1.46. Of course there are cheaper and more expensive countries, in some it costs nearly 1 Euro and in others € 1.70 - but that 1.44 is, let's say, European average.

  71. Interesting point here

    Most people are begging for the cars to also use the pumps . If you actually took the time to look at places where trucks fill up they have seperate pumps than cars as those pumps have much larger fuel nozzles for quicker filling , which are also incidentally too large to fit in a car fuel tank filler . So making cars and trucks fill at the same pumps would do the opposite to having a realistic simulator. Truck fuel pumps are also kept seperate from where cars fill up

    1. Of course if you know the marketing vice-president at MOL and can get him/er in touch with us so that we can persuade MOL to be in the game, we'll be very happy to include them! But the trouble is that for company our size, getting important people at big companies just to listen to us is far from easy. That's why we are celebrating every little step towards making our games renown and acknowledged in the big corporate world.

    Will be new physics in ETS2, because this is the essence for a simulator game?
