Playing with Depth of Field

First of all, big thanks for everybody who tried to help and sent us information about license plates looks, logic and rules in the various European countries. The amount of feedback was overwhelming, a real avalanche of information.

The realization that so many people are eager to help and devote so much of their time to write detailed explanations is humbling. It gives us great inspiration to build our games, it's such a great feeling to know that we have such a devoted fan community!

For today we are going to show you two images from the world of Euro Truck Simulator 2, showing one of our artists playing with "DOF" feature in the game's 3D engine. In these two shots the effect is a bit too artistic (though it may come handy in creating fancy screenshots perhaps), but we are using this graphics engine feature in a more subtle way usually, for example in worsened daylight conditions it makes a good combination with hazy atmosphere, or when there is rain out there. A bit of work is still needed to make the pedestrians look better, good enough to show them in focus :-).

  3. The truck looks great, but yeah the pedestrians do need a lot of work. Personally, I don't like the whole Depth-of-Field thing, because it makes everything too blurry. But still, great work, and I'll be happy to see pedestrians in the game! Finally!

    3. It's 28.9 on the Excalibur's web-site. And it's IV quarter (Oct. Nov. Dec.) in the trailer made by them. So that guy, who said, it'll be released when it's done, is right)

  5. WOW cool SCS can you please please make the windows on the trucks open and when you go into the city will you hear the sounds of people and things it would feel lifeless otherwise

    1. No, we don't want to hear more about windows. We want cabin light.

    2. We want windows and you wont see a cabin light.

    3. I agree, it would be great! We could enjoy the amazing sounds of the game world seated in the cab of the truck.
      I want windows that open.

      Delete
    4. You already have windows.. :-)

      Delete
    5. Windows should be openable, I agree! In STDS there is a feature like, when you turn the camera to the left enough, it goes outside to see the back of the truck.

      It should be like this - when the windows are closed you can't go outside with your head. You have to open the windows to do this.

      Delete
    6. Yeah thats a feuture that you can do in real life but not the game and this is supposed to be a simulation of real life!

      Delete
    7. Yes i really really hope SCS can make the trucks windows open.

      Delete
    8. In the newest STDS builds, when you look from driver seat, and turn your view to left (with mouse, in my case), at some point view CHANGES to out-of-the driver window view, and vice versa, back to cabin. Of course, sound changes too, to depict external (non-damped) sounds. WOW!

      New map in STDS is great, detailed to the bone, and all I can say is:

      "People, wait patiently for ETS2, it will be game of the year in it's category!"

      Sounds in STDS are simply - great. When you are in some backyard in the country, you can hear even roosters and crickts.

      SCS, great, great job! Thanks.

    9. @malić: You can take a dump in real life; should that be implemented too? Regular toilet breaks! MSFS doesn't have a feature to walk through the cabin, and that is simulator. You can't simulate everything that happens in real life. Even the Sims doesn't go that far! I would suggest that we all forget about asking for new feature in addition to what have already been implemented, the engine seems to have been finished, it would appear that it now basically polishing, and bug finding.

      Delete
    10. I have thought of a purpose for opening a window, “virtual farts”!

      With the screen prompt
      “You have farted, a malodorous smell is filling the cab – must be all that Sauerkraut & Bratwurst you had last night”

      Still I would have thought anyone wanting to play the “simulation card” with regard to “opening windows” would have to acknowledge from a simulation point of view opening the door is infinitely more important, as its quite tedious and hard getting into a truck “dukes of hazard” style!

      I do wish people would stop bleating about opening a windows, as most truck with middle/top range sleeper cabs have air con while the lowest range ones it’s an option.

    11. Being able to open on the trucks is a good idea!

    14. And if you will be able to open the windows what are you gonna do? You will get out the hand from the window or something? I don't have any problem if SCS add something of these two although i think that are pointless but if they can add something i would prefer interior lights.

  12. the back of the truck looks better than the front.. just check on the front lights again scs..

    and.. it was nice i could maybe help.. i hope you get the german plates right.. i really would like to see old pre 1994 plates without the eu crap :D

    oh well one can dream.

    oh and pls take a look at the onramps in german.. thay must be longer before thay join.. the "stvo" says you must stop at the end of the onrampe if you cant get in, but no one ever did or does.. so thay make it longer you have time to get speed and some times some people use the "seitenstreifen" aka "standspur" (emergency lane) to speed up more for 100-200m.. nothing wrong with it i think.. police does not mind. :)

    just trying to get things right for the german part of the map. maybe even for the next game after ets2.

    btw. some people in other forums think you should start programming a new engine or buy a other on becouse prism is to old thay say.. i dont know personaly. :)

  13. Far too artistic or being medically unfit to drive because of bad eyesight!

    It works quite well is STDS for “worsened daylight conditions” “hazy atmosphere” “rain” etc, there is the odd time it’s a little excessive despite the lack of any of the aforementioned conditions where blurring is seemingly starting at ~60m, though that seems less prevalent now with patch 1.3.0 than 1.2.1 and before.

  18. It is Great to see pedestrians SCS one thing I have noticed in one of your recent videos is trains. Will there be the correct trains for the correct country? IMO this a must have feature it UKTS the trains looked very out of place. No I am not asking for the correct trains on every single line (although personally I think that would be great and I would put it in the game) just the right trains for the right country.

  19. Hi SCS , is here a new incoming patch for STDS coming? Or a new DLC download soon? :D .

  20. Dear SCS.

    Let me start with what a good job you guys have done about Scania Truck Driving, its really good. Haven't found some really big bugs yet.
    I wan't to talk alittle bit about ETS2, since i'm using a Steering Wheel (Thrustmaster RGT Clutch FFB) A really good wheel that i bought for the incoming ETS2.

    But i've a problem, since you guys doesn't support its clutch. Its using Sequential gearshift stick, and in real life its auto clutch. But i would like to see the clutch working, so you have to press the clutch to change gear. And have to press the clutch to clutch out, that would be realisme.
    Have you guys talked about it, it would probably be easy to add that feature. Hope you understod me.

    Best Regards Jacob,Denmark.

    1. Logitech G27.. Thats the best wheel for this game ! :)

      Delete
    2. But he has a point about having the clutch work with sequential gearbox (optionally), my old 90's Merc trucks with EPS were sequential with a clutch, and it would get his “Thrustmaster RGT Clutch FFB” working with a clutch and would give the option also to G27 users to use just the sequential with a clutch.

      Delete
    3. Thanks that somebody understod me, its just really sad that it doesn't work to my Thrustmaster, since i bought it with clutch should it would work in Scania...

      HOPE they'll make it work in ETS2!!!

      Delete
    4. Maybe abit of topic, but does steering wheels work in Scania? and if so is there any speciel steering wheels that works better then others?
      Thanks

      Delete
    5. Yes, wheels work in Scania. I have and old Logitech Momo and it works great. Very little setup necessary. It just doesn't have enough buttons. I'll need to look into other options. So far I'm hearing the G27 and a Thrustmaster are worth looking into, but they're very pricey.

      I've noticed no one mentions TrackIr. It works great too and Scania didn't require any setup for that, it automatically recognized it. I can't play driving or flight sims without it.

      I'm home recuperating from shoulder surgery so this game is really good therapy, keeps my shoulder moving. I can't wait for the extended map. Need a beta tester? I have a LOT of time this week!! wink wink

      One last thing, I've found several references to a map editor and the instructions on how to start it but they don't work. Has that feature been disabled or is there another way to access it?
      Thanks!
      Naf

      Delete
    6. map editor still works, you need to set g_developer & g_console to "1" in the STDS "config.cfg" file that’s at >user_name\My Documents\SCANIA Truck Driving Simulator\

      Then start STDS, load the user name, then press the console key (¬`) which is the key to the left of 1 and above tab (UK keyboard), with the console open type "edit" without the "" then hit enter and it should start.

      Delete
    7. Thanks b101uk, I've tried that a dozen times and I don't get the console mode. I'm running Win 7. It doesn't want to open for me. Is there anything that needs to be downloaded aside from the game itself? I have the digital version, no CD.

    9. PS, I hate to keep posting off topic in this blog but is there a support forum? I can't seem to find anything other than Facebook. I have questions about the in-game map.

      Delete
    10. No just the game.

      What keyboard layout are you using? US, UK, other.

      You could try the 3 keys to the right of "L" (QWERTY type)

      Or just press the none letter/number keys one at a time until you find it.

      Delete
    11. If you do find it, your best of using windowed mode in the editor.

      Delete
    12. US. and I've already tried every key combination along with shift, Ctrl and Alt. I will give it another go and let you know.

      Delete
    13. It may be wise to look for an image of a UK keyboard layout and compare it to the US layout to find the same characters between the two layout, as I think I may be right in that the tide key (~) is to the left of the 1 key above tab on a US layout, so you need to find the key with (`¬) on it (without the brackets)

      or set you keyboard layout to UK type as a quick test, then try the key to the left of 1 & above tab.

      Delete
    14. Wow, it doesn't like me.
      On the US keyboard the ` and ~ share the same key. On the UK keyboard the ~ shares the key with #, I noticed. But we don't have a ¬ key anywhere. So if it's tuned to the ¬ key and not the ` key, then I'm dead in the water, unless there's a file I can change that property in.

      Delete
    15. In line 65 of controls.sii that is in

      C:\Users\user_name\My Documents\SCANIA Truck Driving Simulator\profile\###########\ controls.sii

      (\##########\) = numbers/letters

      Has

      config_lines[65]: "mix console `keyboard.grave?0`"

      You could try changing it to

      config_lines[65]: "mix console `keyboard.f12?0`"

      which makes the F12 key the console on my uk keyboard, the Grave key is your problem,

      Delete
    16. config_lines[65]: "mix console `keyboard.num0?0`"

      make number pad 0 also the console

      Delete
    17. That worked! You're a genius! Thank you for all your trouble.
      Another dilemma:
      Do you know if there's a way to get a full screen map of the trailers and destinations so a route can be plotted instead of "heading toward a dot?"

      Thanks

  21. The pc steering wheel manufacturers should do some truck-like steering wheels, i refeer to dimensions, logos and functions like whipers levier, and others who can make a more real trucking experience.But , i guess they cant assume this risk, for a small amount of people who are playing these game genre.Sadly.

    1. No-one knows about language thing in ETS2. But there's Turkish in the STDS. People volunteered to took part in the crowd-translation project on GetLocalization.com. You know, I thought my language has to be in the game. I was the only translator for the most of time (probably, it wasn't fun for the other lad, so he quit) and I'm happy my language is in the game, no matter a lot of pirated versions from ukrainian web-sites don't even seem to contain it. That, probably, has something to do with political and historical reasons)

  31. I'm probably on my own with this but it would be cool to have crazy radio stations like in GTA games and when you go into a tunnel your radio fades to static.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I'd love that! But that's probably a tall order, I'd really like for it to read my mp3's from a folder and add static sounds from time to time, and especially when passing near powerlines or under tunnels (no idea if powerlines affect radio :P). Also, if I could pick a folder for each country? I think just that would feel so nice.

      Delete
    2. I don't like the idea to use any budget to "crazy radio stations". I'd prefer internet radio option with real radio stations all over the world. Also it would be cool if there were "shitty" stock radios with a lot less options and manageability, and then you could buy better ones including internet radio, mp3 and even navi. AND Winamp plugin that would control your Winamp inside the game would be GREAT maybe. That way one could use wheel buttons to control radio and volume like in real cars and in addition, managing playlists would be easy when you already have them in your winamp

      Delete
    3. When I said Crazy radio stations I mean the fake ones with fake news that are funny. I thoroughly love listening to those piss take radio stations.

  33. Nice pictures, and realized that the two images, there are people around, I do not know if it is unique to these images, but if it is really true about these people, could put a system against running over pedestrians, example, I with the truck, going toward a pedestrian, when I try to trample him, the truck returns to the street and leads a fine of high value, so do not influence children (because I know there will be children they will play) not to drive dangerously. Well it's just an idea ...

    3. Yeah, that's a good idea. In STDS and T&T pedestrians were put in the areas where you can't run over them. So, if they will be walking on the streets, we'd need something like that. Of course, regular kiddo would want blood and brains all over the road and his truck. Probably, it would be good if pedestrians were trying to avoid the crash. I think I would be fine if they just were walking on the streets, because I don't really think I'd want to "KILL 'EM ALL", but there'll be someone who would)

      Delete
    4. Can't remember which game it was but if you tried to run over pedestrians they'd always jump out of the way making it impossible to hit them. Something like that would be nice because personally I'd like to see people crossing streets and such while I'm standing in the red lights. It would make the cities more vivid.

      And of course even attempting any such maneuver should be penalized with a reckless driving fine or something.

      Delete
    5. I agree with JJ. Deduct points or license suspension. Some type of quality driving tracking system, for version 3, major changes are too late for this version.

      And Eric, please don't apologize for your broken English. All of you from non English speaking countries do a fabulous job communicating and it's a joy to read your posts. You communicate just fine. It's poetry. Congratulations for even trying. When I lived in Holland I would speak Dutch to the merchants and they would reply back to me in English. It was awesome.

    6. SCS should make pedestrians "invincible", so when you hit them on purpose, the truck (or loaded goods) will be completely destroyed or/and all your money will be taken from your account!

      Then, TRY to run over innocent pedestrians. :)

    There are some scens that can see double trailers in Europe.

    I'm living in Taiwan and truckers in here cannnot attach double trailers.

    3. Indeed i agree with you on the trailers scenario, They had this feature on American Long Haul was a good feature, you also got contract offers for certain works around the country.

      Only time will tell now, as i am sure they guys at SCS are just bug testing, i would have thought that they were working on the new website etc aswell for the launch which some say is going to be in September.

      I just hope they are going to do addon countries later on just Activision do, After all they coould make extra dollar from the game by now having a team creating the steps to a bolt on to the game.

    4. +1 +1 +1 for add-on countries/"extra seasons"/maybe special type missions "see if you can get from x to y in z time with no traffic violations..." stuff like that :)
      Dunno what will fit in with the game though but will be nice if they release extra content like they doing with Scania
      haha, I am dreaming now, but imagine, ETS2 patch 1 DLC addon map of rest of Europe.... Patch 2 DLC addon map of Russia.... Patch 3 DLC map of middle east and so on and so on. I think even if i must pay for these type patches i think i will :) Will be cool driving (i think) from Paris or northern UK to Vladivostok or Magadan

  39. Would be great if you can see radars, so you know where they are and some having a chance of being off. Also a radar detecting device would be nice.

    2. A Truck Simulator without snow how stupid. They have time to spend flucking about with DOF, but do not have the time to add the files needed for snow. With the release date put back yet again, I am sure they could find the time to add it, but as this proves they would sooner begger about with DOF. The simulator has made massive improvement since the last shit you release GTS/UKTS but this simulator will be no where near as good as it could be because you can not be bother to add snow. Very poor show SCS. Do everyone who will buy this game a favour and put back the release date another couple of days so it gives you the time to add it.

    3. A few days? its a big map it could take weeks if not months i think snow is best for winter truck simulator.

      Delete
    4. to add some with malics post, what about physics, this could also take a while because all physics would have to be changed to fit snow, this comes with alot more bugs.

      COME ON GUYS HOW HARD IS IT TO THINK, DO YOU ALL THINK A GAME IS MADE IN A FEW DAYS AND DEVELOPERS JUST WAIT A YEAR UNTIL THEY RELEASE IT?

    5. First, there are many other games where there is no snow, yet they are not bad in the games. On the other hand, you have to sometimes you think the SCS with a new graphics engine is working hard to create a lot of people are playing or where it can then also add snow to time is just not so easily as you imagine. Realaxe and Wait as we all

    6. Lol dudes ... what the f**k are you honna do with this snow ? ........I just want a simple explanation?! .... :X

      Delete
    7. @ArmoredLKW, snow weather feature in winter time adds a lot more realism to the weather variation and to the game in general, try to imagine cars covered in snow, street-sides covered in snow, ur truck covered in snow, trees are white cuz of snow, it makes the player see new things not just ( rain- sun ) which after a while gets boring, i hope that was a clear explanation ;D

      Delete
    8. If they don't add snow, there will be mods for it anyway!

      Delete
    9. None of those snow mods wouldn't be as near as good if SCS were doing seasons. But, since they would do it in the proper way, it'd take time and money. So we just can hope that some time after the release SCS can start working at something like seasons. I still think if they would work at some add-ons most people would prefer map extenstion. I'd love to have seasons, but you can't make SCS stop beta-testing, delay the game again and start something that big by just writing "SNOW" with caps lock on.

      Delete
  47. I agree but scs have started this spec on releasedate with naming 1 week off August, and then pulling it back again saing maby its released in september.. I know the game is not done, but it makes us speculate a lot..

  59. Please SCS let us open windows on trucks

    ReplyDelete
  60. I know the game isn't even finished yet, but I hope to see an expansion of the map. Northern, southern and eastern Europe should be added and I am willing to pay for those as DLC. The same is true for specific trucks and bigger cities.

    This is the perfect game for DLC just like train simulators. Remember this is a niche game and unfortunately you simply can't expect too much content with little money earned by the programmers. Even if SCS wanted to add more for free, they got to make a living off of this game.

    Greetings from Germany
    Looking forward to the release

      I think most of us would love to see this -- and be ready to pay for such expansion packs/DLCs. It would keep them and us alike going for a long time. Hopefully something can work out for SCS (I have no clue what is required in terms of publishing these things, that is probably part of the hurdle to overcome).

  61. Really looking forward to this game SCS, While people seem to be intent on you implementing opening windows???? there is a feature that your games lack which should be in any truck game indeed it is associated primarily with trucks. That is of course the sound of the parking brake. that lovely chusssssssshhhhh sound you get when it's released or the psssssshh when it's applied This is a feature that should definately be in the game.

    2. I agree with you on the statement about release date. They really should post a date. But you need to realise that the wholr scs team is about the same as one small group in other companys. And you compare scs to companys that have MUCH more money then scs got. Scs is a small company with good game creators but they cant work for free just to get the game ready when you want it. But yes scs should post a release date. The fact that they just say : its ready when its ready. Is extremly unprofessional. But with the amount of whiining fucking kids in here i understand why scs just doesent give a shit with pleasing all of you. Stop whiining and let scs finish. And scs its about time the release date is posted no release date makes ppl lose interest because they dont know if it willl come out now or in 2 years. I know you have said it might be finish in september. But if you arent sure set the release date in desember. Its better to release it before the set date then to blow the release date cause then people will be angry and start spaming and
      whiining.

  66. LIttle OT: if you go at the amazon.co.uk website and search Euro Truck Simulator 2 you'll find some new photos in the game profile. I am so sad to say at all fans of the Iveco brand that SCS don't have rights for the italian truck manufacturer. In fact, in the amazon photos you can see the Ivedo brand and the interior of the truck same as they were in GTS. Thi smake me really sad and a little bit disappointed but, maybe Iveco had make trouble to SCS for give the right...I can't know this, but my little angry still remain!!!

    2. I don’t think you can actually claim to say “most” players want something as there are to many “Anonymous” named people doing regular/multiple copy/paste demands, whereas a significant amount of persons who disagree with “xyz”” etc have names so are at least distinguishable.

      To have snow you have got to have seasons, so that’s 4 sets of vegetation textures and a swath of changes ALL over the map to remove/add/change vegetation and objects from fields, etc etc vs. season, then every item WILL require a snow texture, it would be ludicrous for lots of parts of the map to have snow for the duration of winter rather than just sporadically, if your then going to do snow then roads in the alps will require snow banks as a flat white texture just won’t cut it like it would in the low-lands so that’s extra 3d work, which will probably require all the roads in the alps taking up and replacing with new road “parts” so snow banks don’t appear all over the map on road edges, you have then got to change the period of snow between the Alps vs. low-lands vs. UK etc etc.

      Then you have got to blend all the weather types dynamically.

    3. Even Rockstar games who have more than thiusand people that work for them had put snow in his games...how can you ask at Scs, a software house with 10-20 people, to insert such things?!?
      Everyone in a videogame, expecially in a simulator, want the see the game world look like real world, but actually there are limit at this dream. We have to accept what SCS give to us NOW but I'm sure that when the tecnologies are affordable, SCS will give us a better world, similar at the reality. Untill now, play with great games that we already have and have fun. Dreams exist cause you have something to dream on!!!

  77. I'd prefer different more trailer combinations and more trucks ingame over pedestrains... like scandinavian 24m+ modules and semi + mid-axle trailers. More variation to loads and trucks, specific trucks for different kinds of work (gravel, rocks, trash, wood etc...)unloading and loading with dump trucks for example. not just attach/deattach trailer...

  78. when elease ets 2?

    ReplyDelete
  79. Hi guys,
    In my oppinion, depth of field (blur) and camera lenses (flare) effects are good for cinematic effects like replays or something else, but for normal gameplay I think they are bad.
    Depth of field tries to mimic our eyes flaw and camera lenses flare the cameras lenses flaw. Also, there is a huge cost in performance for slower computers.
    I would better like to see how tires deform on bumps like in Mafia 2.
