Special guest

A lucky combination of factors on both sides has brought a special guest into our office. During the next few weeks, we'll have Piotrek from eurotrucksimulator2.pl "embedded" here in SCS Software's office, helping us test and balance Euro Truck Simulator 2, and no doubt doing a little reporting from the trenches on his own. (OK any bugs left in the game when it ships are his fault! ;-) )


Piotrek has been taking screenshots along the way while playing, mostly for use to document bugs and glitches in the game of course, but here is his own choice of a few nice screens from his testing today...

    1. You can buy upgrades in ETS2, so I'm guessing these are the cheapest ones.

      Anyone else notice that he's using a 19/20" screen? I feel sorry for the guy cuz I'm on a 24" and it feels tiny compared to my brother's 27"...heh

  21. Am I the only one wondering how many women work at SCS? First of all, it's a gaming developper, but second, it makes games that involves big rigs, buses and killing animals (men's worlds)

    On topic:
    Looks great SCS, but do I need a NASA computer to drive normally without terrible graphics?
    Can't wait 'til the release, I hope you'll keep posting nice pics, but more important is that you make a good game of course!

    1. thats a bit sexist, i know loads of women drivers. and who do you think works on there reception or even how do you know if they have any programmers that arn't women.

      i recon the CEO of SCS has got the eye for decent women working in his office to give his team something to look at whilst they are working hard on super game ETS2.

      I hope they employ more women if they keep us informed like this on the blog.

      your right about one thing though, it does look great and judging by the game play of STDS you dont need NASA's PC to run it just something that can stand on its own 2 feet.

  22. I only hope there will be some sound at the junction between the bridge and the road in ETS2.
    And I really hope there will be bad roads in some regions (for example Czech Republic) in ETS2. In Czech republic at the junction between the bridge and the road, when you go over it the car does a little jump.
    I hope you understand me. ^_^

  24. Scs, is it possible to finally make reflectors on the concrete blocks and guardrails ?

    Modders have done this on GTS and ETS 1, with mere skinning so I asked myself if you guys could Implement it as well...


    It will just take a couple of minutes to reskin the concrete or rail.dds with some reflectors (red or green or white I dont care as long as we finally get them)...


    Simple and easy things like that give the game an extra reality dimension !

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Also reflectors needed for the road side posts!

      Delete
    2. And also traffic signs should be more reflective from distance.

    3. Cats eyes would be more appropriate than reflectors on concrete blocks, guardrails or posts, as many roads have neither concrete blocks, guardrails or posts but DO have cats eyes.

  31. Where do I report bugs?
    Media player:
    1. Can't play mp3s because of the filename containing language specific characters, please read the filenames in UTF-8.
    2. I don't want to duplicate the music files, so please follow the shortcuts made in the music folder.
    3. Radio streams are not working for me, I don't know why.
    Traffic lights:
    1. Semaphore's yellow light can't really be seen and please remove that little texture like a reflection on each semaphore light. It's weird because it's not the actual reflection and even weirder at night.
    2. Truck headlights go through everything, cars and trucks in your front, bridge pillars, etc. Light should stop when reaching any material except glass.
    3. In my case the speedometer and everything near shows blurred. If I look left or right it's starting to become very clear as it should be on standar view. Resolution: 1366x768.
    These bugs are in Scania Truck Driving Simulator, but they might be alse in ETS2. Please check them.
    Thank you.

    2. To get working radiostreams you should put an IP-adress in that file. If you are doing it wrong, it's not SCS' fault. Someone was writing about that before and he helped me to get it working in my game. Download the m3u, open it in text editor and you'll see an IP there.

I think its very sad to see that SCS is using millions of hours to make these trucks as near the real thing, using many hours recording real sounds, modeling the truck and the first thing spoiled brad do is.... Changing it. NO, we want another sound here and there, change the rims, change the suspension and engine and so on.
      I know that I couldn't care less, but I still think its sad. I will change the game because I can... Hmmm. But until then I will complain in here that things are unrealistic.. This does not make sens, maybe I'm to old for this shit.

    1. lol, they haven’t even managed to change the power from 380 to 420 and all the physics are the same bar the cab movement which will end up nodding back and forth indefinitely after a minor bang due to lack of damping and a change in boost which just affects audio mainly, so from a physics point of view all they have managed is to introduce a problem and make the turbo sound a little louder.

    11. ALL trucks post 1988 were required to have speed limiters fitted (1992 law 92/6/EEC) including retro-fitment, there was no law to require there mandated use or function by the driver or company running the truck BUT they had to be fitted (one of them silly EU law situations), hence most were simply adjusted to well above what the vehicle could do anyway via the tachograph or the fuse was simply pulled out if it was controlled by other than the tachograph by the truck dealer or the first driver of the truck, in 2002 2002/85/EC law amended 92/6/EEC putting more vehicles under the regs and mandated calibration 90kph/56mph for vehicles newer than late 2001

    1. We have been trying to list our games on Steam for quite some time (our older games there already have been put there by our publishing partners), but it seems that Valve/Steam has doubt about truck sims. We'll keep trying, we would love to be on Steam for sure. Perhaps ETS2 will finally persuade them that it's worthy of their attention.

    2. SCS Software please change these front license plates in UK, they should be white. Haven't Excalibur Publishing mentioned anything like that to you? they are from UK so they should have mentioned it.

      If you can't answer my question or have an answer to it but don't want to share it, just please tell me if you are going to change these license plates or not.

      Thx :)

    3. Squint your eyes and just pretend they are Danish, Luxembourg or Netherlands trucks which have yellow plates front and rear,

      I think It may only be the UK who mix front and rear plate colours.

  55. OMG these screenshots are so beautiful! I can't get over how nice your work is, I am so excited to play the game. Excited as I may be, I still would love for you to take as much time as necessary to assure that the game is nearly bug-free, if not perfect. But I guess no one's perfect. However you guys honestly come the closest.

  56. Hello, SCS! I hope you hear me finally?
    Everything about ETS2 is cool - interesting - good - appreciated!

    But please, tell me, finally: What model of wheel do you recommend for ETS1 (UKTS, GTS)???
    I have a Defender - it doesn't work!

    And: Do you mean to fix problem with wheels in ETS2?
