Update to Scania Truck Driving Simulator coming soon

We are about to release a new update for Scania Truck Driving Simulator. This is going to be another small update - with again two new Dangerous Drives challenges included. The work on the extension of the free roaming map should be finally completed for the next planned update. If you would like to help us translating texts for the new challenges into your own language, you are welcome to do so at the game's GetLocalization page.



We are planning something new alongside the release of the update this time. We are thinking of a little competition - we will be giving 3 free activation codes for Euro Truck Simulator 2 (on the day of the game's digital release) to the players with the best 3 results achieved in one of the new challenges. So make sure you have the game activated and registered to be able to upload your results to the Leaderboards, and work on your driving skills! We will announce the details of the competition in advance so that you are not caught by surprise, this is just a little pre-announcement to make you curious. ;-)

    2. Notched retarder as in “Jake brake” are not too common over here (EU) as they are noisy, more standard fair would by an exhaust brake (butterfly valve in exhaust after turbo) which is almost standard on most turbo trucks like Scania etc but is only off/on or an e.g. Telma brake (electromagnetic eddy current brake) which is mostly aftermarket though is “notched” like a Jake brake

    1. I thought the same, but with a little perfecting lines and use of manual gears I got into the top 5 on a couple of challenges, the problem is now to get any further up I would have to down change gears into drastic over-revs and seemingly use a game pad or set my steering wheel up like an f1 car steering so it goes from lock to lock very quickly, which would be less truck like in realism.

      Delete
    2. I agree; I don't think truck driving is all about time like in a race, the truck is a machine you handle smoothly and precisely and you don't see many truckers over-reving their machines all the time as we see in manevours replays of players.

      Delete
    3. Agree with both replies, so many perfect drivers out there who can do challenges very fast with no mistakes :0

  10. Honestly couldn't care less about getting free activation codes, I'm buying this game to show my support to SCS, if I just 'wanted' to play the game I'd rat it. I'll take the STDS update though.

    Nice to see this much attention being given in such a short time. Compared to big companies that tend to make you wait 3mo before news/patches.

  14. Merhabalar, ingilizceyi iyi konuşamadığım için Türkçe yazacağım.
    Öncelikle tırların çeşitliliğinin artması gerektiğini sadece Scania'nın bir modeli değilde birden çok R420 gibi modellerinde olmasını temenni ediyoruz.
    Bir diğer husus ise "Ölüm Yolu" tarzındaki yolların artması gerektiğini düşünüyoruz.
    Bir hasus daha var ki benim için en iyisi oyunun internet üzerinden olmasını istiyoruz. Oyunun hem verdiği heyecan ve gerçekçiliğin artması bakımından hemde dostlukların yollarda devam etmesini istiyoruz.

    Teşekkürler.

    2. Me too ^^ Anyway, I'm a bit disappointed, that we'll have to wait more for the map extenstion, but, probably, this way the map's going to be more interesting and bigger, so I'm ok with it))

    3. I just hope they will wait with the translations for ETS2 going public so the persons who did the most and best of STDS can translate before the translations become public and the google translators come.

  16. hello scs,

    I know this is off topic but for your next projects please implement community drop box for 3d models. I know this will hurt somehow the modding community [most models are from modding community], but at least you make the fans happy. I have an idea for the system how it will work:

    1- create a forum to have more communication with fans
    2- a voting system so that each 3d model have a chance to be in the game the higher rate the more chance to be in the game
    3- a developer section where you invite a freelancer developers or professional ones to help you with your games
    {not only 3d models but every things about the game}

    I'm putting this in a purpose to help SCS create great games, and I know a lot of people want to help them without any paycheck.

    1. The idea is ok in principle for 1 & 2, but the problem is, while there is a lot of good very highly detailed models made by end uses most of them would preclude themselves, as they are either made form parts from multiple people, rip-off of others work in part, don’t have LOD’s, are extremely wasteful in polygons, or use the most graphically expensive texture FX needlessly, etc, etc or just don’t fit the caricature of the game ,

      then finally most end uses aren’t qualified enough in knowing about 3d etc to have an opinion to potentially vote, as most of the vote will be based on superficial things rather than technical aspects or if things are done to industry standards, e.g. it’s very easy to hide a technically superb 3d modal under a mediocre texture which may get few votes even though the texture is perfectly mapped and an scs artist in a couple of hours could make it look perfect, on the other hand a flashy rendering of over-bloated 3d modal with external fx applied to it and a good texture would get lots of votes but could look like a pile of crap once all the extraneous detail is removed and would take many hours to put right, as they say, “all that glistens isn’t gold”

      Delete
    2. I think he have a point but I think it could be better by a simple method:
      1- scs receive the models privately
      2- choose the best of them
      3- make them public and when there is a multiple choice fans vote for one of them

      this will be better and I am with idea of a forum like truckmodshop

    Me, I won't be up there on the leaderboards, for sure (I prefer slow and safe, competing against only myself) but it should make three people happy, for sure. Heck, I'd buy the game even if I would be in the top three, then I could give away one key to a friend instead. (c:

  22. maybe at the next update u (scs team) will add more cars and more trucks on the roads especialy on the highway (at the current patch there are a few cars and traffic ,this is not real)and maybe u will change the time to pass faster not 1 minute in real life =1 munute in game time (like in the previews games u made)

    3. Kidding me? When 24 hours goes by on like 10 minutes, that would be crap. I want the time as u said, 1 min = min irl.

      Delete
    4. @Anon: So, if I play this game 3 hours a day, according to you I'll have to wait 4/5 days worth of playing to pass from 5am (early light) to 8pm (sundown) just to expreriance what it's like to drive at night? and then be stuck on nights for 3/4 days? I think you're the one doing the kidding here. :P

      Delete
    5. No you just press RESTART until you have a time that suits you. If you like to drive by night then RESTART until time is around 22:00 and then drive.
      Nighttime is 3-4 min to 1 IRL as I remember..
      I have driven 65+ hours IRL now and best like to drive at 19:00 in game time. At this time the game is just stunning. Really Really nice graphics when the sun goes down.

    6. I would love to see an option to set the clock for the free-roam. And weather. I love night and rain, ha! (c;

      What do you say, SCS, would this be easy? A setting like specifying 1) time of day and 2) weather conditions, or setting them (default) to "Randomize"?

      Just a thought. Like the fact that the map is 1:1 so to speak, but to each their own there.

      Delete
    7. Oh, oops, didn't read first post carefully enough, this is about STDS, thought he was asking about ETS2. That 'RESTART' comment makes more sense now :P I was like, wth is he talking about..lol

      Picking starting time and weather in STDS would be neat, and time speed as well. :)

      Delete
    8. I think they will rescue the problem with the time in Ets2. Ex if u want to see all day moment ( day night sunshine etc) u should play minimum 10 h gameplay . I think the time affects the distance driven too . Ex: if u want to drive from Germany to England there are minimum 1000 km this means u should play 10 hours of gameplay at speed of 100 km/ h to reach your destination I suppose ( 1 gameplay min = 1 real life min)

      Delete
    9. Resolve not rescue sorry

      Delete
    10. In ETS2 time depends on map's size. It's all about distances. And in STDS it doesn't matter much, since the city isn't real. And option to choose the time, weather and maybe time speed would be perfect. This might be a real good idea, sounds like it possible to do this in the short time.

      Delete
    11. Yes, ETS2 will have a different scale, since it needs to match the distance and map. I do hope we get the option to "wait X hours" in ETS2 again, I have missed that since 18WoS, and if you are just a short time away from shops opening and all rested, well, it can get dull waiting around doing nothing (or driving at random to pass time), or in other situations too. Also for "role-palying". (c:

    5. S7efan,

      That is not right.

      I wrote the message with my phone, swipe sucks.

      Any way what do you think about the 90kph limit on trucks?
      I think it is crap because some times you have to go faster in order to deliver on time.

      cheers

  26. First of all thank you for making it possible to use my seperate pedals in Scania Truck Driving Simulator. Secondly can I please ask that you guys improve the FFB. I have a fanatec GT3RS V2 with firmware 744 and driver 132 and the FFB is almost non existant. I barely feel the gravel or dirt road and I have FFB on my wheel at 100 with vibration and FFB at maximum in the game. Also with the extension to the map can we have a few deliveries that take ten minutes or more to drive to. Most of the deliveries are very short. I only play the free form deliveries and have no interest in the rest.

  28. oh.. what about a retarder instate an intarder? :D and fix the automatic.. i should not run 4000rpm @50kmh @ 9th gear.. it should shift to 10th sometimes soon becouse of eco driving.

    1. It never over revs, when I play. Only when I'm hard on brakes and then pushing the throttle the next moment, but the revs wont go over 2000 and gearbox changes up almost immediately.

  29. i like all this but i do think it would be a good idea for scs to stop making add ons for scania truck as this will make ets2 not as fun way quicker. it would also mean that ets2 release date would be sooner. please rely....

  32. can u make the brakes more efficient (like this video shows http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSQSueFrxzI )?
    and why the trucks are limited at the speed of 90 km/h (i understand that the truck with the trailer max speed is 90 km/h but if u drive only the truck without the trailer the max speed allowed is higher than 90 km/h i think

    1. Remember, Merc’s top mechanics will have crawled all over that truck and trailer, the brakes will be adjusted fully, it stands a high chance of having Merc’s own trailer axels on with disk brakes, it may well have had the brake suzi pipe coils replaced with straight hose to reduce length and speedup trailer brake reaction time and finally it’s on a test track which like racetracks use high traction tarmac with stone chippings in that haven’t been worn down by millions of tonnes of vehicles running over them!
