Another cool ETS2 movie

Our friend Piotrek from www.eurotrucksimulator2.pl has just published a really nice movie from his gameplay session in Euro Truck Simulator 2. We liked it so much that we thought it was worth mentioning quickly here on the blog.


The raw footage for this video was recorded on a testing machine, a four years old Intel Core 2 Duo E8500, with 2 GB of RAM, and with not so fast passively cooled edition of Nvidia GT 9600 video card. The game was not only playable but in fact some performance was still left for the video grabbing software. The game may not be running at the best visual quality settings, but the use of a G27 steering wheel makes the ride feel smooth in the video.

  5. Dear SCS-Team

    Do you have thinking about implementing the Oculus Rift VR-Headset for the future? That would be awesome!

    1. Really looking forward to that one, is nice to see that VR headsets are finally coming to the masses (read affordable :P).

      Delete
    2. the really cool thing is that you actually be in the game, and you can look really fast with the headtracking system of the ocolus and of course the 3D effect is much much much more better than in an actual 3D TV. Thats why i hope that SCS implementing this feature so that all people can sit in a virtual interior of a Truck and drive around the virtual-world.

      Thats why i make lenses for my eyes for astigmatism instead of a wearing an ocular.

    3. There is no guarantee however I plan to try to make it work in ETS2 once I receive the devkit.

      Note that at least the devkit hw with its lower resolution will likely have some issues with the game UI.

      Delete
    4. Because you have to make the game UI 3D? Anyway its fine that you help. Thank you. I wait until the consumer Version is released with improved Resolution. Atleast something about 1600x1050 minimum i hope.

      Greetings

      Tom

      Delete
    5. The UI does not have to be 3D most of the time. Actually ETS2/STDS already has support for Nvidia 3D Vision. The problem is that the UI contains lot of text which would be hard to read when rendered with 640 horizontal pixels of the devkit.

  7. Wow, these graphics stayed impressive, with a computer already widely used and parts, say, old.
    And impressed me the amount of uphill and downhill roads, compared to Euro Truck Simulator 1 it was just once in a while. And I realize that these trucks, brake very fast without giving any stride, very different in real life, but you could put as MAINTENANCE at least to leave a bit more realistic, like changing the brake linings, disc
    Brake ...

    And from what I saw I think I'll set up a trust my future computer and HD Graphics 4000 processor to play, because I see that it will take for the money to come on from the video card, lol.

    And as always, embarrassing me with a lamentable Google Translation...

    1. Dunno if I'd call a 3ghz+ core 2 duo a low end cpu, beats the rig I had about a year ago by about 1ghz.

      Given that this is a truck 'simulator', maintenance has to be in there in some form. Dunno if we've had any news about that yet, but I'm hopeful this is one of those things they're keeping for us to discover for ourselves. :)

  10. The game looks so damn beautiful with that low graphic settings, i just love it.
    BTW nice truck out there, i like it a lot, but i don`t like the Magnum, Premium is better and one more thing, finaly SCS the trucks have a real horn sound not some weak sound or an ugly one, like the horn too.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. In all my time driving trucks the Renault premium is the worst in my opinion, no comfort, no style, and the auto transmissions lack responsiveness and power , just saying :z

      Delete
    2. I think you never heard real horn if you think that horn at 0:33 sounds real... this horn sound awful!

      Delete
    3. Real, i meant good. Is awful for you but i like it, horn in GTS are awful.

      BTW don`t say something like "i think you....", don`t say something to some one if you DON`T KNOW HIM. ;)

      I can say something like this too about the first anonymous guy. I think he is a kid that laugh all of him and came here to insult people so he can feel good.

      And about you, i think you don`t show you name so people don`t laugh about you useless coments.

  11. Finally the American SD-40 loco is replaced with a Traxx loco which is widely seen all around in Europe. Hopefully nowhere on the map will we see those American locos in Euro Truck Simulator 2

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. There are quite a few rail company’s in eastern and sothern Europe who operate freight locomotives with more than a passing resemblance to US type GP/SD/U/B/C/RSD freight loco with both low & high narrow nose, as GE, EMD & ALCO sold licences to their older models to eastern/sothern European state rail company’s and the Soviet union prior to its breakup, also some state rail company’s would buy old US loco’s and remanufacture them with different engines etc and modifications to fit the relevant loading gauge.

      Given diesel loco are needed in many places

      e.g.
      Polish PKP class SM48 (Soviet-built ТЭМ2 [ALCO RSD-1])
      Turkish TCDD DE20000 (General Electric U18C), TCDD DE21500 (General Electric U20C), TCDD DE22000 (EMD G26CW-2).
      EMD G16 used in Spain (RENFE Class 319), Yugoslav Railways (JŽ series 661) and on later Croatian Railways (HŽ series 2061 / HŽ series 2043 also EMD G26 as HŽ series 2062 ), Slovenian Railways, Serbian Railways, Macedonian Railways, Kosovo Railways and Railways of Bosnia and Herzegovina Federation (all JŽ series 661)
      Portugal CP Class 1550 (MLW type MX 620), CP Class 1320 (ALCO RSD-39)
      There are plenty of GE C30 derivatives in Lithuania, Estonia, Russia, etc.

  12. Yep, lookin' good there. Hope the dynamics live up to the excellent graphics, will be nice if wheels and force feedback work properly, something with which there have been issues in the past.

  14. I wish to have better camera head movements and G forces for better feeling! please scs

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Even with those features you wouldn't see any changes, hell, might as well assume they're in the game right now, modern truck cabins move sideways to counter G forces and so does the driver's seat, very much doubt you can feel turns in a truck unless you're driving it on a racing circuit. :P

      Delete
    2. Maybe the cabin doesn't move that much. When you drive a truck you definitely feel the G's. You will be pushed from one way to another.
      Look at some youtube movies, shot from the outside you'll see

  15. Looks amazing! Keep up the good work! Cannot wait for the release! One question for someone to help me: Will this game work on Windows XP like STS, UKTS and ETS and if so, would it be better to install the game on that or Windows 7 afer I have purchased the game?

    1. Maybe on lowest quality possible, the SCS engine is heavy

      Delete
    2. I think you won't be able to run it...
      Your processor is a bit old, but it might work (only ETS2 running - that means no web browser opened etc...)
      Graphics card is too "slow" with only 256mb you won't be able to play on more than lowest quality (I think that GTS needs 256mb graphics card)
      You didn't wrote how much of RAM you have, so if you have more than 2GB of RAM it's good otherwise not.

  30. Will the game be coming out on the mac platform or will it only be available for windows pc's?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Typical pole. Driving fast, Nearly hitting a car, Pulling out of a fuel station when it is obvious that there is a car coming. I bet the video was cut at 2:38, because he hit that car right up the arse. See them everyday in the real world, this just proves that in virtual reality they are just the same. The worst truck drivers in the world. Game is looking pretty good though, can not wait to give it a go. Next video should show a delivery from start to finish with no edits.

    ReplyDelete
  32. So want this now, great vid

    ReplyDelete
  33. SCS CONGRATULATIONS, you are going on the right way.I have a some idea;

    *AI trucks must be realistic ( stop-start at red lights,overtaking,stopping distance should be close to etc.)
    *Openable windows
    *Pits on the roads
    *And trucks interior can be have cabin lamp.

    Example for cabin lamp :

  37. Nice work Piotrek on the video, thanks for sharing.

    Looking good, handling looks nice on the trucks, thought the wreckless driving was funny to see,

    All we need now is someone walking the line with the police and we should just about have nearly all scenarios apart from burning houses ambulances and police zooming past.

    All things for the future though.

    Before we know it ETS 2 is going to be on the shelves as September is fastly approaching.

    No pressure SCS

      All that on Win7 Ultimate x64 SP1.

  49. Game looks great! Especially i like the truck customizing part. I am working as a truck driver in real life as well and here are some of my ideas. Maybe You can add them to ETS 3 some day:)
    1) you can exit the cabin and just walk around the truck
    2) when loading or unloading before backing up to the ramp you have to exit cabin and go and open the trailer doors :D

    Best of luck to all of You and hopefully we can buy the game soon:)

  69. Some stuff looks unfinished or same as in the ETS. I really don't like that the last warehouse you entered in the video BSP or something was the name in ETS looks completely same. Another thing camera following is the same and the on which is on the roof keeps vibrating like in ETS. So the game looks really unfinished or same as ETS which isn't good at all. But the good thing is that scssoft didn't released it as alot of people whined about it so I hope you read these comments and fix game :)
