There is more than just the macho side of truck driving

We are happy to show you a few pictures with our new driver!





Over time, quite a few readers of this blog expressed their wish to have both gender alternatives covered in our games,  and at last we got around to be able to offer such an option.

The images above happen to be from a project that of course everybody already knows about due to massive leaks of information that should have not leaked, but such is life. We had to stay silent due to contractual limitations, probably perplexing you a bit with all the info circulating out there. Fortunately, finally next week we will have the green light to unveil it officially on our own communications channels as well.

  6. Cool, because both the man and the woman will feel more comfortable, more confident, as his driver. You are surprising me more and more.

  7. It's good to see that you're posting news more often, and I hope that you will keep doing so and that you're not just throwing lots of posts during one or two weeks to shut us up and then post once every 2 weeks again.

    As for the female driver ... it's good to see that you've listened to a demand, though personally I believe that driving trucks is a job for men, not for pussies.

    And since we're at fulfilling demands, when are you going to finally implement pedestrians?

    1. unlike the comment above, you place a comment with respect to scs and you post what you think instead of forcing what you think...i like that.

      many woman drive these trucks, and not always only driving but also the hard work loading and unloading (like the well known Lisa Kelly (ice road truckers), who still is a woman) but it's a choise in the game, those that don't like the woman can leave them. so both "lovers" and "haters" can benefit. as scs already pointed out pedestrians will be most likely for later versions (ETS3?) since completing this would make us wait for at least 2013.

    2. Sorry, but that's just a load of crap. It's just driving. Anyone can do it. You think men can't be secretaries because they can't type? You think men can't be nurses because they can't give sick people injections and medication? You think women can't drive trucks because they couldn't possibly understand how a manual transmission works? What kind of idiot are you?

  12. really sad that in this day and age there are still people who think a womans place is in the home . After 15 yrs as a female HGV 1 driver with only one accident that was my fault I have seen the good,bad and dangerous side of driving from NOT just men but also women . I have also seen that there are nearly as many women nowadays play computer/comsole games as men and thank you SCS for thinking of women as well as men . I just hope some of the hired women drivers in the game are also 5 star and not just 2 and 3 star like UKTS and GTS

    1. Dude, when you reverse or park a truck in tight places, are you focused or relaxed ?

      Delete
    2. Hahahaha, great question. I voting on that you are really fucused when you're reversing with a truck, especially with a Scania! Scania is from sweden, right? I wouldn't crash a Sc(S)ania, lol, becuse iam from sweden! Nice work, SCS!

      Delete
    3. you can crash any car/truck or whatever doesn't mather what builder, if there's something small you overlooked it has happened especially with something big like a bus or truck. reversing or maneuvers will always make you more focused, unlike in a game if you make a mistake it costs a lot of cash + you can be good, but there can always be someone in a hurry and passing instead of waiting= always focused in stead of full relaxation. (and i know what i'm talking bout, i drive for real in towns and small villages)

  18. scs i do have a great idea to make the game more interesting by haveing traffic jams on busy roads like the m25,paris ring road.etc even add vsl on m25 to make it much more realistic please reply scs

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I doubt a traffic jam would make the game more interesting for most of the players. It would be pretty boring to just sit there doing nothing. Of course it would bring realism, but at what expense.

      Delete
    2. Yeah, remember that not very optimized AI traffic generating in Haulin? It caused so many traffic jams and was absolutely boring. Luckily there was that feature of taking break in the middle of road and all traffic disappeared. It helped, but destroyed atmosphere. Better without traffic jams. :-)

      Or, traffic jams, but with some notification on GPS to avoid it, if you're attentive enough. That would be pretty realistic - maybe good idea for ETS3. :-D

      Delete
    3. At least then you have a choice to make on your own... Go into the T-Jam , or avoid it completely.... :)

      Delete
    4. I totally agree this f*cking awesome IDEA !!! :) I'll be happy, if SCS doing that Idea, because he is a really really perfect for this game. Why not , i want to stay somewhere for 10-15minutes in hightraffic !!! I thinking others guys, same that thinking like me.

      Delete
    5. I doubt SCS will add this, but there's hope for ETS 3. There should be a menu where you can adjust traffic levels easily, whenever you want to. But that's an idea for ets 3.

  19. nice driver,

    and nice registrations plates. hope scs, that you correct the polish registrtations plates.

  20. Great, of course we all like girls in trucks. I'm only afraid if this "secret" project will be so hard game as T&T was (sometimes almost impossible for me, but I'm not complaining, finally something really challenging), there will be no time to look at trucks nor environment... nor girls. :-D

    Looking forward to news about this game!

  21. You are simply awesome, SCS. You are making the greatest truck simulator ever! Waiting for news about mp3 radio ;)

  23. I think these images are from the new surprise game " Scania truck driver " from scs soft.. keep up the good work.

  24. So, the ability of choosing our driver's sex is finally back (I missed it since American Long Haul). Great decision, and nice work with the driver model! ;)

    Now just add the option to customize the driver with doing haircuts and buying clothes, and you are well on the way of making GTA with trucks (or Test Drive Unlimited for that matter) :DDDD

    1. Euro Truck Sims? Great idea! Maybe choosing your character's profession would be good feature too. For example trucker or... err... trucker! :-D

    for god's shake.You have been in a scania for recording and you did not even notice that these are just bad mirrors and they have nothing to do with the real ones?

    1. why wrong? i don't see it (compared to friends scania R480 but looks good)

    2. Oh shut up anonymous, nobody cares that the mirrors are 1mm too high or whatever. Stop complaing, you are probably a truck driver in real life to know that so why be so nerdy and simulate YOUR OWN LIFE?!?!

      Delete
    3. HE IS FCKIN RIGHT!they are not even smooth at the corners.they are just rectangle ones!You both havent seen scania in real life!Its not about 1mm too high fckin idiot but its about the whole shape.
      Check this image so you can understand.

    4. Keep your pants on, and read my last comment. Who cares anyway? I admit they're not perfect, but unless you are stupid, you'll cope for golly sake. Download a mod when ets 2 comes out if you are that bothered.
      By the way, stop simulating your own life. :)

      Delete
    5. For god's shake kid,what you don't understand from what they both said about mirrors?You don't need to be a truck driver to see a fckin scania in real life get over it !
      The truth is ,they are totally wrong,not even perfect they are totally fckin wrong its like they made their own mirrors.
      Finally,look at me,i did not even ''simulate my life''.so you dont cry again.
      If they are gonna make a perfect scania,mirrors have to be too.Everything else is perfect and its the easier part to be made in fact.So why not be perfect too..
      you might not care,but Me and more others do.its not the only guys here who gonna buy that game.Wake up.
      You think that this is a fight or something.not them.
      ALso you behaved first so nerdy and angry,calling him to SHUP UP.
      GO away now craphead and next time you want to guess something about their life,being truck drivers or sth,better not do it and dont fckin cry now that they are going to fight for small details.they are posting their opinions and they just want to help scs make the game better.If you find this offensive GTFO.

    6. Shh, your boring, get a life and stop worrying, IT'S A FREEKIN' GAME.

      Delete
    7. mothafcka,shut up already.dont come to a point saying its a fckin game cause if you did not even care for this you wouldnt answer to the boy he said that mirrors are wrong.
      Now go and fckin fck urself you stuborn,this is a fckin game and those guys just pointed a fckin error,and you came to pretend you are smartass with your first words(Oh shut up anonymous..).GO FCK YOURSELF AND THEN DIE.Just do it.
      PS:B4 those steps,try getting a lil bit mature,calling someone boring when ''fighting'' is like calling juice is bad when you already drunk it all,sth that doesnt make sense at all.you are so lame.
      AND ITS YOU'R not YOUR,FREAKIN not FREEKIN.gramma nazi,problem?
      FINALLY,SUMARISING,YEAH THESE ARE SOME BAD MIRRORS AND I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THEM FIXED SCS.I AM WRITTING ON CAPS SO YOU SEE EASIER THIS MESSAGE NOT BECAUSE I AM ANGRY.NO ITS NOT ABOUT THE 1MM HEIGHT OR WEIGHT OR WIDTH ITS ABOUT THE WHOLE SHAPE.THOSE ARE RATHER CUSTOM MIRRORS THAN SCANIA MIRRORS.
      Thanks in advance,
      Also you should be puttin a reply as Nerd anonymous option for the guy above me.

    2. Why on Earth is everyone obsessed with multiplayer nowadays? All you do is lose connection and do the same thing over and over again.
      I'm not even typing my many other reasons why I hate multiplayer. There are too many to list.

      Delete
    3. Thanks, I thought I'm the only one who is confident that multiplayer is nonsense.

      I understand that some people plays strategies with friends, I understand that making most awesome Minecraft creations requires co-work, I even understand that others plays racing games or co-op FPS (weird, but what the heck). But multiplayer in trucking game, focused on spedition? Really? What's the point of it? Picking cargo, driving for 20 minutes, honk-honk on someone I'm passing, driving for 20 minutes... Can finally someone explain me what is so amusing on it that everybody wants multiplayer?

      Not to mention that lots of gameplay and technical aspects, as we know them from SCS games, would not work (or very hardly) in multiplayer.

      Delete
    4. I know, right?

      Could be fun convoying, perhaps, but it is also wide open for grieving and so on.

      It would take a long time to find the right formula, let alone implement the technical solutions to multi-player. Perhaps one day, but not now.
