Scania Truck Driver Simulator now online

The big moment is here, we are launching the digital edition of the game today, along with the official web site at www.scaniadrivergame.com!


Scania Truck Driver Simulator The Game has appeared on store shelves in Poland this week already, ahead of the official street date, so we had to act faster than we anticipated to allow people to compete online.

We also have a new, shorter and more dynamic cut of the official game promo video trailer on our YouTube channel as of today:


We would like to thank sincerely to all of you who have helped us in the closed beta testing period, and to those of you who have helped us translating the game into so many languages. Now that the full game is out, it will be easier to see any trouble in the translations and correct them for future patches of the game.

  14. I`ve played the trial version now and it`s awesome, i like the engine, the gearbox, now i can feel that i have 40t in my back and 19m it`s a lot harder then i thinked, T&T it`s easy, the controls are so real, two word SCS, GOOOOOOOOD JOB! ;)

    But if you can make on thing real that woud be great, when i`m in automatic if you can make to help the gear, lot of times the truck is reaching 2000 rpms and a little gear up would be nice.

  16. SCS i noticed somthing really bad. I have an E7300, GTS 450 1GB, 4GB ram, on Scania Demo center on MEDIUM graphics the game is at 13-20 fps WTF:O, just in DEMO CENTER. If i change anything, then the game runs perfect untill i lokk again at trees and other vegetations.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. In the other challenges how many FPS you have?

      Delete
    2. 35-50 fps in any challenge, only in demo center in some areas run like crap. It should run perfect on medium with this system, like it runs on other challenges. I closed all programs and still have the same problem. I think the game is not very well optimized. The recomanded system requerements are dual core 3.0, i have 2.66.

      Delete
    3. Sadly it's a general issue of the free roam maps it seems. I also experienced the same performance issues on the City and the Demo Center with my rig: it's definitely not a top PC, but I can run Battlefield 3 on Ultra settings without any major fps drops, so the problem definitely lies in the new Prism3D engine.

      Delete
    4. Go to Start\All Programs\SCANIA Truck Driving Simulator\Troubleshooting\ and use "Play SCANIA Truck Driving Simulator (DirectX)".
      If problem is still actual after that then something other makes your gameplay slow.

      I run STDS on MAX settings without video card on normal 20-30 FPS, I use Intel HD Graphics 3000 integrated into processor.

      Delete
  17. OK SCS Software I want to say a big THANK YOU for that game,but one question we will translate Euro Truck Simulator 2 too? answer me please!

    1. You can self translate it when it will be on GetLocatizion, but it is more realistic when it is in englísh

      Delete
    2. I don't understand how would English make the game any more realistic.

      Delete
    3. Since, there's no characters using some specific language, translation to some other language wouldn't harm the realism. That would only make the game more understandable, and that means bigger market,which is good for SCS.

      Delete
    4. I am pretty sure that crowd-sourced translation will be used for ETS2 as well.

  21. Too bad that this game requires an high-end PC. I've got a good PC, I can play the latest games on high details but STDS will run only on low details for me.

    1. This comment has been removed by the author.

    2. I think because the game isn`t very well optimized. I have the same problem just in Demo center, in all challenges runs at ~30-50 but in demo center it is a different game, 18-25 fps.

      Even in BF 3 i have more fps :)) lol. I don`t think SCS has a better graphics then BF 3, BF 3 is stressing the PC at maximum, so this should mean that STDS isn`t well optimized.

      Delete
    3. Yes, I totally agree that STDS isn't well optimized.

      Delete
    4. Same problem here, i can run games like Battlefield 3, GTA 4, Skyrim at 60fps and highest details. STDS runs only 35-45fps with 150% scaling, all on medium, MLAA, DOF, HDR off.

      Delete
    5. Can you all stop comparing fucking BATTLEFIELD and SKYRIM with this game? Christ, some people are unbelievable. Do you seriously expect the same graphics from a team that is 1/20th the size of EA and Bethesda?

      If you knew anything about what a graphics engine is, you wouldn't have said that.

      Delete
    6. Scaling 100% ! MLAA off, DOF off, HDR on, shadows medium, mirrors low, others high and game not run under 40fps thats not bad !! average 45, 50fps, my spec 2.5@3,3Ghz core2duo with shity HD4850 .. overclock your CPU !!

      Delete
  22. They should work out the optimization. That always was a problem.

  23. SCS thank you for game ^^
    I played it already and it's fabilous so far ;)

  24. This game runs like a bag of ass. Nearly twice as hard on the pc as GTS, harder on the PC then battlefield 3. Thanks but no thanks.

    1. Let`s hope that ETS 2 would be better optimized. This is not as big like ETS 2, but still is very anoying to see that now you have 50 fps and then you have 20. I have the recomanded specs, only CPU is 2.66 instead of 3.0 but this souldn`t be a big problem.

      Delete
    2. I don't think ETS2 will be better optimized. I won't invest a big amount of money into a new PC just to play their games. With that money I can be a real truck driver, which is better than playing trucking games on PC. ;)

  25. Game bought and downloading the game, was expecting to buy the game on the 18th but this is a more than welcome surprise.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm very happy to see that the game is available now, and especially glad to see that we can now pay by PayPal. The initial price is a bit high, though - I expected it to launch around $19 instead of $25.

    Anyway, despite the optimization issues, I will certainly get the game - I thorougly enjoyed the beta, so I am happy to support SCS in making the phyics and the engine of subsequent games even better. ;)

    3. and btw, this game isnt meant to be played by 3 year old hardware, its clearly made for High end pc's this new engine leechs performance.

    4. Read the recomanded specs man, Dual core 3.0, GTS 450 GB, 4GB RAM. This game si bad optimized. Is not normal that a game such BF 3 to run better then STDS. BF 3 is the most demanding game along with Batman Arkam City. If you can`t understand this...I can`t explin more to you, think for a second, it`s not normal to run this low a game with such poor graphics comapare to the bigger games like Crysis, BF 3, Batman...etc. Cleary bad optimization, they need to work hard on this.

      Only in free roam and demo center runs like this, in any other challenges runs over 50 fps on my PC, in demo center below 40.

S7efan what is your Hardware specs? and please bear in mind that this is actually the first time ever SCS create a high end Engine for its truck games, so of course there are bugs, and bad performance issues, every game got somekind of issues once its first released.

  56. Game runs like shit. Computer better than minimum specs and it still pays like a slideshow. Just in case someone tells me it is my computer MW3, Battlefield, Sniper Elite v2 (could list more) all play at over 60 FPS. This has not been optimized properly. What is the point of making a game like this if it is unplayable ? I hope you sort a patch out as it does look better than the crap you have released before. You need to make sure this is playable on all types of computers for optimal sales.

  57. Hello everyone. I apologize for my English, I use google translator. I express my deep gratitude and appreciation to the developers of the game. Lord, You have done a great job. Changing weather conditions in the game is impressive. The behavior of the truck, control, head light is separate from the marker light ... Just no words. Confuses only the lack of steering return when you play the keyboard like in past games. He returned when the truck is moving, it's very realistic. But I think that for those who seek realistic and needed to drive it this behavior is justified. For the keyboard would be good to do a simple alignment, or to offer a choice of settings. Best regards, Andrew

  62. Game runs perfectly for me. I get around 60 fps anywhere in the game, everything maxed out @ 1920x1080 resolution and I can record well with Fraps locking fps to 30. My gaming rig is almost 1 year old. i5 2500K @ 4.5GHz, GTX 560 Ti, 8GB RAM and Windows 7 64bit (if anyone is interested).
    The gameplay itself is just awesome. I just spent 1 hour to fool around the Scania DemoCenter with manual H-shifter and clutch (I got a Logitech G25). So much fun. Tomorrow I'll get more familiar with the challenges.

    But all in all, a very good game. This makes me wait Euro Truck Simulator 2 even more, but time will pass quickly by playing STDS. Great job, SCS!

  70. Hello SCSSoft,

    congratulation to your new truck simulator! It looks very gorgeous and I'm happy about the development progress. I will buy the game soon. :-)

    Additionally, I just wanted to say that I figured out how the coordinates are stored in the memory of ETS and I began my small project at www.truckmap.net. It is not finished until now but the main system is ready. Players can see each other in real time on a virtual map, maintain their statistics and compete with other players or VTCs.

    PS: Your leaderboard of Scania Truck Driving Simulator is a very cool statistics feature! Incredible, how many people already submitted their points.

    Best regards,

  73. I really like your work SCS! It's excellent! The game is so smooth, no lag at all, and I was afraid there would be a lot. Also, unlike Trucks and Trailers, this game has an amazing camera angle, as well as trucks that are actually bearable to drive! I am definitely going to buy this game soon, I especially love that Dangerous Drive mountain mission!

  77. Hey,
    Although i do have some tiny things that bother me (like the "optimization" (some slowdown in the scania democenter)), i'm surprise about how good the game is...
    To be honest, i haven't bought (yet) the full version but i feel like i'm gonna make the jump right after this comment...

    I really like the "licence" or the "time reaction" test, the support for the H-shifter is clever and i love it!
    Graphically, it's quite good and i'm happy with that (sure, some could complain it's not the greatest but it's better than a lot of game and it's the best truck simulator available)

    Great Job SCS!
    Now i'm anticipating ETS even more !

  78. I got to say looks very good so far. I'm downloading extended version right now with 918kB/s with bitcomet and still can't wait to have a look

    1. Well done :O It was the first time it actually felt like I were driving real truck when playing SCS games. And I have been playing them for a while. I even managed to drive that hairpin at Scania's test track full speed but in sideslip xD I am also truck driver in real life. I see there have been huge amount of work with this game and everything is just like it should be :) Except for the poor cruise control just like before and a little bug. Briefing music won't stop playing sometimes when I start driving. My dad has crappy 50e graphics card so graphics were set to almost minimum for smooth play but even then it feels great and looks pretty detailed to me. So thank you SCS. Make many more of these!

  81. Im sick of the game crashing I thought they had got a patch ready for the game done and ready to go, the game runs smooth on my pc but the dam thing keeps crashing ( or as windows calls it failing to respond then I I have to click on close program, come on SCS the amount of the time you where testing it, and you didnt notice the bug with the mirrors being the wrong way around when your using a right had drive truck, or that the game crashes alot?

    But I got to say when I can actually play it for 10mins its a bloody great game just wish it would work properly, I cancelled my pre-order for the dvd version as thats not even ready yet, and bought the downloadable version so I could play the game while my wife is in work, and im on holiday leave from work

    2. Most likely reason for the crash is that you run out of available memory if you have 32 bit system and too high scale.

    1. hey Aditzu, if you buy the game from the official website, basically all you can do from there, is to purchase with your credit card, download the game full legally, and you're good to go, that means you dont need any CD to play the game. hope that cleard some stuff for you ;)

  88. Can we know when the first patch will be released? The reverse mirror is really annoying.

    But still amazing game.

  89. I see people that complained about crashing, I have a dual core 2.66 and GTS 450 1GB, and 4GB ram, i didn`t have a crash so far. Maybe you have made a bigt Over clock, maybe you need to update the driver video, i don`t know. If you have OC, try to leave it at stock settings and see how it goes, i have on my GTS 450 900/2000 OC and runs perfect. One more thing, you must have all other programs CLOSED, because the game is lagging badly.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Why is it when you're in gear and you lift off the gas, the truck goes straight to neutral. This is really annoying considering I've paid £18 for this game. When I reverse and lift off the gas, is goes back to neutral. It's REALLY annoying!

    1. i've got the same problem as well.. also the truck gas up automatically... when choosing sequentel gear.. and when u choose automatic gear, the truck shifts to 2nd gear and neutral all the time.. you cant move.. playin on xbox 360 gamepad..

      Delete
    2. What? I`ve played the game since yesterday and didn`t have this problem. Only if i`m in first or second gear at 10km/h puts in N. Play secvential or manual.

      BECAUSE IF THE GEARBOX DON`T CHANGE BETWEEN 2ND AND NEUTRAL THE ENGINE WILL STOP. Under 18 year old kids that don`t have a clew about DRIVING and trucks.

    4. damn S7efan you got some serious issues with the temper dont you? so you're whining about the game is lagging badly so if you were a bit more mature, you would know the reason, but obviously you're underage to know it.

    6. =))) Lol =))), you make me lagh bad kid, the reasson because the game si lagging is because isn`t well optimized, i won`t explain again this, if you think that is normal that BF 3 is runing better then STDS...

      I`m under age? :)) I`ve made a video for you kids that don`t understand why the truck is in gear and back in neutral. Next time make some smart comments ok? I`m 21 and a half :).


      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=miqu9M5ivsE&feature=youtu.be

      You see how the engine starts to stop kid? That`s why the gear box is changing to neutral. Next time, mature guy, like i said make some smarter comments.

      Delete
    7. ok S7efan you should know better dude, how can you even compare BF 3 and Scania? are you aware that BF 3 have been out for 8 months now, that is old, and BF 3 didnt really have any big hardware requirements due to the conosle ports. Infact Prism3d engine requires a lot more then Frostbite 2. Now compare EA games/DICE employess and SCS software. This engine is brand new, so of course its not perfectly optimizied for every hardware yet, just wanted you to know ;) and S7efan im not out to insult you. However using Caps lock makes me think kids are behind the keyboard, but you never know.. anyways i'll watch the video you posted, and i might learn something about trucks, cheers :)

      Delete
    8. You say what man? :)) Prism3d is better the Frostbite 2. =
      ))

      I`m not going to insult you either, but you say some stupid things man. BF 3 when came out requeiered quad core and GTX 560 minimum, STDS has poor engine, poor graphics compare to BF 3. I mentioned BF 3 because so far is the most demanding game ever made on PC. You clearly don`t know what you are talking about.

      Delete
    9. well obviously i didnt explain my self good enough, so lets just leave it out the area, we dont want to start a war here :) i absolutely agree with BF3 got better optimization and graphics then Scania or ETS 2, but all i can say is, i love the graphics in Scania so far, compared to Truck & Trailers :) so forgive me i made some useless stupid comments, anyways i tried to say that comparing a brand new engine that have just been released, wont run smooth for all. cheers ;)

      Delete
    10. War? No, you like truck games, i like truck games, it`s just different opinions, BF 3 isn`t well optimized too, but from how it was at the begining it`s better now.

      I agree STDS, ETS 2 has very nice graphics, i said that has shity graphics compare to BF 3, but i like the game, has a very good control, it`s 100 times better then T&T.

      Delete
    11. I don't see even 1 reason to compare BF3 with STDS, it's just stupid to do it. The Game's perfectly done as that SCS's still developing their engine.. STDS patches and ETS2 will be different when they optimize it .. so there's no reason to compare games such Crysis 2 BF3 and so on .. becouse their developers have lots of games behind them and have highly optimized engines, SCS got 10-15(don't know exactly atm) games and they're small company in developing..

  91. Also, when you opt for right hand drive, the mirrors are the wrong way round...

  93. I wait for this so long and after trying the demo I'm very disappointed...SCS what have you done?!?
    Graphics is heavy and not well optimizing but I find a decent (not good but playable) configuration, so maybe I can pss on it but...THE CONTROLS ARE HORRIBLE!!! I spend my morning trying to configure my Xbox 360 controller and NO WAY TO MAKE IT WORKS DECENT!!! Why you don't put a configuration for this beautiful controller? I'm the only dumbass that play truck games with a controller?!? I don't think so...if something change I'll buy this one, but for me now it can stay on the shelves. :(

    1. The keyboard control is very real, you don`t need a wheel now, SCS have made the best keyboard control that i`ve ever seen in any truck game.

    2. Jos Wayne just give up on the 360 controller, it's impossible to make it function properly.. however using keyboard + mouse is much better, that works well.. or you could always buy a racing wheel, makes the game 1000 times more enjoyable and fun cheers ;)

      Delete
    3. I'm thinking about buying a wheel but playing German Truck with my controller was very good and I hope that ETS2 and Scania works the same but...someone can tell me what wheel works properly? The official microsoft works? And Thrustmaters? Logitech? Who knows something speak XD

      Delete
    4. Logitech Force Feedback EX works perfectly even the wheel's turning very smoothly and the pedals're much more synced than any other SCS game(if you remove all deadzones). The graphics runs perfectly for me.. Just that you need to add the game to the NVIDIA 3D settings so it can work properly. STDS is perfect and I'm waiting for it in the nearby game shop so I can buy it !

    5. Logitech Driving Force GT has the best FFB for small budget. If you can spend more, get a Logitech G27.

    6. Jos Wayne maybe Scania is playabe with a 360 controller, but it needs a lot of time with the configuration, since they added more stuff compared to German Truck sim. Going for a wheel are you :) i would reconmend the logitech G27 cause it got 6 gears, even H shifter ;) look it up defiantly worth a try cheers ;)

      Driving force GT is a awesome wheel, but i heard that G25 si better in some ways then G27 is that right?
