Release & Post-release

When a game is released, it's hard to pinpoint a specific moment in time when the team can consider the work to be truly finished. The game has "gone gold" a few days ago already - we have started producing the "gold masters" for our publishing partners - but the process has been going on through the whole week and it's going to continue well into the next week.

Meanwhile, we have been hard at work finishing elements of the official game website (www.scaniadrivergame.com), which we expect to launch early next week.

Our brave group of beta testers kept torturing the game even after the official finish line, and they have managed to discover a few glitches that we need to fix. So the programmers and designers kept going, working on the first patch of the game. If you are curious, here is the "changelog" so far:
  • Additional type of steering wheel & pedals-friendly automatic gearbox which does not flip brake and accelerator pedals during reverse movement.
  • It is possible to give hints to the automatic gearbox using the Shift Up/Shift Down buttons.
  • Fixed HUD mirrors and look presets for UK vehicles.
  • Fixed waiting times on gas stations
  • Better TV camera placement on several YETD challenges
  • Three additional bonus Dangerous Drives levels built
The game has also started to get mentions in the news. Scania corporation has a piece of news on their Newsroom announcing the upcoming game. Over at truckgame.cz, a competition has been announced giving away copies of Scania Truck Driving Simulator to winners over the next couple of days.

We also need to prepare more promotional material to warm up the public to the game launch, and today we have a new little movie for you, showing scenes from the free-driving map.

  4. A new patch is being made ready that is good news the game is not on even on the shelfs yet, and the beta testers are showing SCS the bugs and they are trying to fix them before the release, I hope the game will be out in the shops next week, even though I pre-ordered it ages ago I still want to play it

    Keep up the good work SCS

    And thank you for fixing the bugs and added 3 new dangerous drives for us to play

  15. Nice game, but still a lot of time to whait untill we play the game. :(

    ReplyDelete
  16. I am suprised really that you did not get the testers to completely test it before going old . To admit before release that a game is bugged is really bad publicity .

    I seriously hope both with this and ETS2 that the AI traffic does not just sit there gridlocking a city if they have an accident until you either exit the game and re enter or drive round them on the pavement and get completely out of the area

    1. A fix to this is to save the game, then load it.

      Delete
    2. It actually better for them and us to do a update for the game, before its on the shelfs in shops, because if SCS dont fix the bugs alot of people who buy it will moan about them releasing a buggy game, however as they continued to get the game ready for release and as the beta testers continued to test the game they have now got a fix, so as soon as people install it can download the bug fix update plus get a 3 extra dangerous drives aswell, I think SCS is doing great with this update and the fact they are fixing things while still trying to get it out to the shops it cant be a bad thing can it?

    5. Remember that the international 1.00 version (downloadable form SCS website) will be available in all languages. When it comes to Plish version, it's probably gonna be like it's been with SCS' previous games - a Polish boxed version will contain only Polish language.

    5. I highly doubt ETS2 will be released in Aug, I think it will be delayed like STDS has been, for beta testing, bug fixing, and creating updates and even DLC content ( which I belive they are hoping to create for the game ) I hope im wrong, but its seems that STDS was ment to be released in May ( from what I read on the blog ) but its now June and we are still a week or maybe two away from the release

    4. I said it`s like racism. If you can`t think in at a large scale... Do you agree with this, that some people are playing the game 2 weeks earlyear than other, when all people PAYED THE SAME PRICE? Answer to this.

      All the games i bought where released during a week maximum, STDS is released during 3 weeks. Not fair.

      I think SCS should consider to release digital versions too, on steam for example. That would be better for everyone.(it`s just an opinion).

    5. Ah stfu... Always Poland must wait on games 1 mounth - 1 year. Battlefield, Fifa, NFS, German Truck Simulator

    6. @S7efan
      You think SCS has anything to say about the release? They just make the game and then a publisher will handle the rest. There are different kinds of regulations and different publishers on different areas, so it's nearly impossible to release something like this simultaneously in every place. It's different for huge companys like EA or Activision which are so huge that they get their way around in every place. Not so easy for smaller companies and titles.

      I agree about the digital version, but you can already buy SCS' games digitally from their website. I don't know how well it works though. I'd prefer gog.com over any other digital source.

      Delete
    3. @Mark
      I doubt you really know what you are talking about. I am not saying SCS' work is bad, but to be realistic about it, do you really think a game engine developed by a small company could really top those engines that are made by huge development companies and millions are invested in their development? No is the answer. The engine SCS uses is good enough, but it is very "raw" (don't really know how to say it). The graphics are good, physics seem ok in the videos we've seen, but I wouldn't call the graphics best of the 21st century. Being just ok won't grant you that title.
      I don't judge games only by their graphics, but big engines (Unreal Engine, CryENGINE, RAGE, Frostbite etc.) and their heavy modifications will blow little fishies like this out of the water.

      Doesn't mean that these games aren't good.

      Delete
    4. It doesn't matter about specs or who devolved it, just how good it looks, think about it. Get a pic of each game, and compare them side by side, you'll see what I mean.

    1. Hahaha mac runs more faster?? It has shitty components, it's like a laptop. It run faster only when you are in desktop/mac apps....try a game on it and then say. With 3000€ you can build a gaming PC with a GTX690, Intel i7 Extreme, lot of ram and you're ready to kickass Macs...they are too much overpriced man ;)

      Delete
    2. Lol, you said there to high end PC, you don`t need that high, a GTX 670 anda 3570K, 8GB ram is the best. 1500e and for 5 years with this PC any game will run at maximum. With that pc, GTX 690, i7 extreme, lot of ram, you can run 10 years any game at maximum settings no problems.

      PC has UNLIMITED POWER, remember this. In a PC you can put 2x GTX 690, ober 50GB RAM, lots of disck space, SSD is so fast that you don`t need a HDD, there are SSD of 1TB, 3 of this and you will kick any ass, 3960X and thats a BEAST.

      Delete
    3. Yes yes, mine is only an example. Just saying that instead of spending 3000€ for a mac is better to spend to get a PC with those components :)

      Delete
    4. Who is stupid enought to spend 3000e on a MAC(rubish)?
      With 3000e you can buy a PC with unlimited power.

      Example:X79 platform: 3930k, 32GB RAM, GTX 690. These are the main components for gaming, but yeah, an SSD/HDD is important too, but i didn`t mentioned the rest components because are not that expensive like the CPU, GPU, RAM( a little bit if you buy over 16GB).

  57. As I didn't received a reply from your behalf, I will ask again. Have you thought about making ETS2/STDS available through Steam? Like a digital copy, like ALH?

    Thanks!

    2. Digital copies are ever available for all SCS games on official website. Really hope that SCS will not use Steam because it ruins the game...lot of people hate that program.

    3. I think you refer to Origin, a lot of people hate Origin, not Steam ;)

    4. I think digital downloads are terrible, because you can't sell them on afterwards. Also programs like steam ruin games.

    5. s7efan, just because you like it doesnt mean the whole world likes it. i also think that steam ruins games. last time i bought a retail game in a shop i had to install steam to play it.

      Delete
    6. I don`t like steam, but compare to Origin is better.
      Retail versions appear slower due to other factors(devlopers...etc).

    7. you know stores have games for a few days before they can sell it dont you. its just rubbish that i HAVE to download steam just to play a game i have bought in a store

    8. That's bullsh*t. With a Steam account you can have hundreds of games at your disposal, you just need an internet connection. And also, I didn't say ONLY AVAILABLE THROUGH STEAM, I said if it's going to be available through steam, as in if you can buy it on Steam. And also, who the heck sells their game afterwards? You want money for an ice cream, because that is the worth of a 4 year old CD game. Jesus.

    9. "You want money for an ice cream, because that is the worth of a 4 year old CD game. Jesus."

      Very well said. :|

      But put it this way. How can you sell a colection game? I have BF 3, BFBC 2, i won`t sell those NEVER EVER. I`ve paied 40euro for BFBC 2, now more then 5euro i won`t get. But i don`t whant to sell a colection game.

    10. For ETS2, they can make a patch which will have:map, multiplayer and online gaming too! And more.

    11. Dunno why you want the digital version via Steam....downloading the game from the original website is really convenient.

      Delete
    12. The idea with the Steam account is that you can link all your games to a single, personal account.

      Delete
    13. Since when has BFBC 2 been a collection game? LOL. You should learn what real collectible games are, regards from a guy who bought one for 150 dollars.

    14. First of all, steam is over piced. £25 is the average price on steam, rip off!
      "who the heck sells their game afterwards? You want money for an ice cream, because that is the worth of a 4 year old CD game. Jesus."
      Actually, people who are caught up in the country's recession would. If I payed £14 for a game, my Dad could sell it for £10 after. That means that I would technically pay only £4 for a game. I save £10, which is a LOT of money, especially if many people in your family are un employed.
      What if I bought a game like COD 2 for £45? Games like that stay at a high price for ages. My Dad would sell it for £35, meaning technically I only payed £10 for a £45 game. It makes a difference, through selling old games. Over 2 years, we've made probably £250 from selling ols games. That' not all, we still have about £20 worth of games that we havn't yet sold.
      Anyone who would buy from steam, not only do you lose out because you havn't bought it somewhere cheaper for about half the price, but you can't sell it on for an extra quater. That means you are paying 75% more. And that's just one game...

      Delete
    15. Only noobs buy new games straight from Steam. You can buy Steam games from other sites for a lot less. I bought one game for 10 bucks when it cost 40 bucks in Steam. And it was the same thing, I got a code that I enter in Steam and then it gives me the game.

      Delete
    16. This is what I mean...

      Delete
    17. It is a matter of taste, I for one will always use my Steam account, just because I CAN. And of course I have to repeat myself because people just won't understand: I said if it's going to be available ALSO through Steam, not ONLY through Steam. I'm still waiting for a reply..

    1. They had no plans to make it, but just because you had the energy to right click and press copy, then right click and press paste 8 times, they'll add it.

  60. Steam have some hard policy as Scs Software said on their blog old posts ETS2 was not approved. I don't know if Scania the game status maybe Scs can answer that.
    Also I recommend www.gamersgate.com It's lot better then any other digital distribution no need to use any program in background you just buy and install.
    Most of Scs Software games are available on Gamersgate i don't know way they don't add their new games there.
    I did asked "Wendros" the Scandinavia Publisher if they can bring Scania the game on Gamersgate, I have not yet got any replay from them.

    1. Steam is good for the people who have a digital collection of games. For example, I have many games on Steam and I will happily add ETS2 to my collection so I can play it whenever and wherever I want, as long as I have internet connection. But with a CD I can't uninstall/install the game 20 times a day, because it will get scratched and "bye bye, ETS2".

      But again, some people like the retail version so no offense intended. I was just asking if it's going to be available through Steam.

      Peace!

    2. All my SCS Games (GTS, ETS) have i byed on the interweb on SCS homesite because i hate cds. I dont got steam, i think SCS Softwares home site is good enough. And you also get a one or a half hour demo.

    3. "But with a CD I can't uninstall/install the game 20 times a day, because it will get scratched and "bye bye, ETS2".

      Sorry, but that's a load of bull plop.
      Out of the hundreds of CD's I have purchased over the years, only about 3 have been damaged, because I was only 5 years old, and I bashed the CD's around, damaging them.

    4. You are a careful person, such trait does not describe me. I'm a careless person. And as I said earlier you completely misunderstood me, please read again my original and earlier post.

      Thanks.

  61. Aditzu why would you need to install / uninstall a retail version of a game all those times ? you install it once and play it . At most you have to put the disc in when playing some games that have certain copyright protections . i have never come across a game that needs uninstalling every time you stop playing . Nor in 12 years of having a computer have i damaged a disc so far . i just take care of them and make sure i store them properly when not playing them

    1. I was being sarcastic, of course no one will need to uninstall/install a game that many times. We are different people, I can't stand having to worry about where should I store my CD's, about how to wear gloves so I won't let my fingerprints on it and so on and that is why I like Steam.

      Delete
    2. Gloves? I've never worn gloves, and my CD's have been relatively fine. See post above.
      Unless you have sticky fingers, CD's will be fine.

  66. SCS one suggestion about the auto-sequential gearbox, when you click the shifter up on the wheel let the truck computer choose what's best for the truck, like when it's only tractor start from 3 and when you click up to choose 5.. or when it's tractor + semi make it from 2 and when you click the shift up (wheel or keyboard) to send it to 4 not 1-2-3-4 etc. ... It's maybe allready done or a bit late, but didn't have time to write !

    Hope to see the full game released on it's official web soon!
